Open Question

How to remove front bumper reinforcement on an 01 Montero Sport?

It seems like there are four bolts built into the reinforcement peice that attach to the frame.  I have nuts off the top two, but I can't figure out how to get the bottom two loose.  I can't tell if they are bolts or alignment pins.  I can't see/get to nuts on the back of them.

It would be difficult to do so without examining.
Almost all repair shops will provide a free estimate.

SOURCE: front alignment

You cannot/should not attempt to adjust alignment without having an alignment machine at hand. There are many settings related to wheel alignment: Toe, camber, caster, scrub, thrust angle. Usually, shims are needed for caster modifications, for toe you need to rotate the tie rods, etc... Every different model has a different setup. With the relatively low cost of a 4 wheel professional alignment today, I would not recommend attempting this yourself. Whatever money you save you'll pay triple or more in tire wear, and soon enough.

SOURCE: check engine light

this light is warning you of a serious issue concerning a failed sensor in the engine. you will need to run this vehicle in the nearest dealership for a diagnostic scan on the ecm/pcm device. this scan will give detailed info on the location of the problem and how to fix it. this scan cpu will also reset the light and it will shut off once the issue is fixed.

If you just want to shut the light off, you can just pull the battery post for a minute. this will reset the ecm but, if the issue is not fixed, the light will come back on in the coming days.

Torsion bar end broken off


You can do several things. Check out the Aboutautomobile.com site and then fill out your vehicle info. When you do this you can look up NHTSA reports and Service bulletins to see if there is a fix for a recall.

Or use another bolt, grade 8, to replace the bolt you broke. You may have to be creative to fit the new bolt inside the frame or use an even longer bolt and drill another hole on the outside of the frame and just put the new bolt completely through both sides of the frame. That way you will be able to grip the end of the bolt when attaching the new nut.

It does seem odd for this to break and that is why I suggested looking for a Recall fix.

How to remove headlight assembly on 2004 suzuki forenza


There are a combination of 3 nuts and bolts for each side...all are 10mm. Two bolts are on top of the assembly, attaching it to the top of the frame/radiator support. The third nut is on the bottom and to the left (if drivers side) or the right (if passenger side). Remove the nut, and with a little bit of wriggling it will pop right out.

Front right bushing is broken and causes a "popping" noise


call dealer with VIN number to see if your car is involved. ALso, please explain which bushing. Safety Recall 98S36 - Certain 1986 - 1995 Taurus and Sable and 1988 - 1994 Continental Vehicles - Sub-Frame Rear Plate Nut Replacement AFFECTED VEHICLES Certain 1986-1995 Taurus and Sable and 1988-1994 Continental vehicles that were originally sold or are currently registered in the following U.S. states and Canadian Provinces: U.S. States: Connecticut Delaware District of Columbia Illinois Indiana Iowa Kansas Kentucky Maine Maryland Massachusetts Michigan Minnesota Missouri Nebraska New Hampshire New Jersey New York Ohio Pennsylvania Rhode Island Vermont Virginia West Virginia Wisconsin Canadian Provinces: Manitoba New Brunswick Newfoundland Nova Scotia Ontario Prince Edward Island Quebec REASONS FOR RECALL The body mounts on the rear corners of the sub-frame that support the engine and transmission may separate. This can occur if the lower retainer plate of the mount or the retaining plate nut becomes severely corroded from long term exposure to road salts and retention of moisture in the mounts. This corrosion can weaken the retainer plate of the mount or the retaining plate nut severely enough to allow the bolt head to pull through the washer or out of the nut. Should both rear mounts separate, the rear of the sub-frame will drop and steering may suddenly become difficult. This could result in an accident. SERVICE ACTION To correct this condition, dealers will replace the attaching bolts, plate nuts and the reinforcement plates on the bottom of the sub-frame rear body mounts, on all affected vehicles.
