Dashpad replacement for 1985 Trans Am.

How do I replace old dashpad with newer one. This is not a cap. Is this as easy as it appears, remove screws, dashpad, and replace with new pad, and screws. Will the speakers be a problem.

This is really easy and will not take more than 10 minutes even the first time. There are 4 long screws at the back of the defrost outlet holes to unscrew and a half dozen or so screws (hex head if they are original) along the front edge of the dash pad. It is very easy to see which hold the dash pad and which hold the guage cluster bezel. once they are all removed carefully lift out the dash issues.

Look at vents in center (top) of dash, remove three or four screws.
next front edge of dash remove all screws, I forget which ones so just take all out(only front edge) (get an electric screw driver) lift old dash put in new one, put all screws back you'll be done in half hour.
I got a 86 Trans Am, the first time might take just under an hour. The second time you'll get it done in 10 minutes.

The engine code is the eighth digit of the vehicle's Vehicle Identification Number or VIN. The VIN is found in two places. The driver's door sill and the driver's side dashpad in the bottom corner visible through the windshield. Find the eight digit of the code--it will tell you which engine the car has.

On driverside of engine, oil leaking out around where I call the back cam ( one closet to firewall) at end. I am talking about opposite end from timing belt on engine. If I removed cap ( w/two star screws...

That seal typically comes with a pack that includes all the cam bearing seals and the valve covers seals. It very easy to replace. Remove the valve cover and discard the old seal, remove the old cam shaft bearing cap seals. Replace the bearing cap seals and the valve cover seal and replace the cap and cover. Tighten the bolts to about 30 lbs and that should resolve the problem.

I have a 2000 dodge durango and my heater core is leaking so i know i have to replace it. I want to know how do i disconnect the passenger air bag so it doesn't deploy. Everything I can do myself.

You will need to disconnect the battery first and then wait 2 minutes before any attempted repair. This will allow the airbag control module to discharge and prevent the airbags from deploying. Then disconnect the airbag control module below the center of the dash mounted to the floor.(The big yellow connector) If you remove the dashpad and frame as one assembly there will be no need to unplug the connector on the passenger airbag.

How to change out dash speakers in a 1987 chevy surb

Just found this one that you posted....

Pretty simple (if you haven't done it already!!!).

First thing, if you can remove your steering wheel, that will help a lot!! If not, and it is titlt, tilt it full down.

Next, remove the lower steering column plastic, then the dash bezel (the plastic part). Don't remove the gauge assembly....

Next, the 5 or 6 screws holding the dashpad on. Once those are removed, you have to fanagle that dashpad out....pulling and keeping it evenly leveled. It will pop loose. When it does, kinda lift up and towards you, then tilt it will see what I mean when you get to this point. The only thing holding it in place is metal clips....they across the front of the dashpad.

When you put it back in, same thing, fanagle it into place and then push with a little force to pop the clips and the dash into place.

That's it!

2001 buick lesabre separated dashpad

It won't hurt to drive it other than it looks a little unsightly. In terms of repairs I think a can of contact cement from the auto parts store should do the trick, make sure you read the label and it is compatable for the job. Hope this helps.

2001 buick lesabre dashpad separating from dashboard

On my 2001 LeSabre the same thing is happening. I have not looked at it too closely yet, but I think a small tube of clear silicone glue (found at most hardware stores) will probably reattach the pad permanently as long as I get it taken care of before it get too far gone.

Checking and servicing the automatic transmission

The cap your reffering to is the dip stick. You need to remove the 10mm bolt that holds it in order to check/fill the trans. The trans takes Nissan J Matic fluid ONLY use of any other fluid will damage the trans and void your warranty(this is why it is bolted in). You will see it printed on the handle of the stick when you remove it. You can use the drain plug on the trans pan to drain the old fluid out and then refill it at the tube with a funnel.
