Question about 1985 Volvo GLT

1 Answer

1985 Volvo 240 Speedometer cable retaining screw broke

I pulled the instrument panel out and the plastic speedo cableretaining screw split and broke into pieces. So now I have a speedocable with no way to attach it to the instrument cluster. I assume thatI will need a new cable and retaining screw, since it appears that thereplacement screw will have to go on the cable downstream in order towork. Just checking to see if anyone knows of a shortcut. I can't findall of the pieces of the screw or I would try to JB weld it backtogether over the speedo cable.

I'd be hitting the wrecking yard, most will give you those parts if you remove them.

Looking for plastic piece back flap of 2003 beetle automatic convertible


beetles always have something breaking, the junkyards have a lot of them, you should be able to find a whole complete top for a decent price and go after the "reputable" shop to reimburse you.
if you want to just get the plastic part that is possible too from the junkyard, what i do with my beetle is look at the junkyard car so i know how to put it together once i get the part home.

How do you replace the bulb behnd the cluste on a 1994 Honda Acord, I removed the two top screws and the AC knobs, does the radion and console have to come out as well?


yes, the radio has to come out, as 2 of the trim panel screws are hidden by the radio.

1990-95 Accord
See Figures 7, 8 and 9
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable. If so equipped, disable the Supplemental Restraint System (SRS).
  2. Lower the steering wheel to its lowest position.

  4. Remove the ashtray and ashtray holder.
  5. Remove the radio/tape player.

Replace dash light bulbs 1986 ford f150


Hello,

Step by step:

1. remove the piece that goes directly on top of the steering column.. this is held by clips, no screws

2. remove the one screw that holds the dash piece that goes BELOW the steering column.. this can now drop down by pulling it - the rest is clips.

3. remove the 3 screws that are visible that hold the dash piece that goes ABOVE the instrument panel. that piece is NOT ready to be pulled off yet!!

4. begin to carefully pull that dash piece that goes ABOVE the instrument panel out until you can access a spot where the headlight switch is coming out with the panel - there will be a plastic piece that you need to push in that acts like a clip - then the headlight switch can be removed and you will see the final screw that holds the panel in place - remove that screw.

5. once you have removed the above, you can access the 4 screws that hold the instrument panel in place - remove them.

6. carefully pull the instrument panel out. if you want to completely remove the instrument panel for easier access to the lights, you will need to first remove the transmission indicator ( P N D 2 1).. this can be achieved by looking along each side of it for the clips, pushing them in and sliding the piece down off the instrument panel.

7. pull the instrument panel outwards until you can access the wire harnesses.. push the clip in and pull them out (there are 3 harnesses for the instrument panel).

8. the instrument panel can now be completely removed and you will need to flip it over to see the back of the panel. the small white plastic pieces are all labeled on the pc board - ford even throws in some extra free bulbs if you dont have 4x4 (they install the bulbs the indicate your 4x4 status even if it will leave the factory without 4x4!).. the larger black ones are for the backlighting for the gauges - these must all be turned counter-clockwise to remove and clockwise to put back in.. they can be tough to get out and pliers can aid in turning them to remove.

9. follow the instructions in reverse to reassemble.

Best regards

2004 TrailBlazer: I have to remove my instrument cluster on my 04 tr...


There's 9 screws in the plastic piece that surrounds the instrument cluster and the lower knee guard, remove those screws and pull the plastic trim away from the dash, disconnect the switches on the left side as you pull outward. Then there's 4 screws that hold the actual instrument cluster in place, remove those and pull the cluster out, unplug the grey plug in the back of the instrument cluster and your done. You may need to set your parking brake and put your transmission in 1st gear of you have a column shifter model.

Need to remove dashboard instrument panel to replace bulbs on a 2000 w reg hyundi accent


there are screws in the black plastic trim around the clocks, remove these and pull the trim forward. then remove the screws securing the actual clocks into the dash, then pull the clocks gently forward.
on the rear are 2 plugs and the speedo connection, these will need disconnecting to completely remove the clocks.
once removed on the rear of the clocks are the bulbs , easily removed by twisting the holders anti clockwise.

to re install, do the above in reverse..

The latch that opens the Trunk (Hatchback - as it is a minivan) is broken. I cannot open the back...


If you still have the broken piece, you can try to use that to try to open the back. Otherwise, you have to open it from the inside.
I changes mine in 2007 so if memory serves me, I had to remove the back panel and pull on the cable to open the door.

Now to see and pull on the cable, and replace the latch, you have to take off the inside liner/panel to get to the latch to replace it. This took about 2 careful hours to replace.

The trick is to get the two side pieces off.
These two plastic pieces are next to the window on the left and right sides. Each piece is about 3 inches wide and 18 inches long. Using a strong grip, or a pry bar or large screwdriver, take off both pieces. There are three clip areas that holds each piece in.

If you are using a tool, be careful to protect the area by wrapping a towel on the screwdriver/tool.

After that the bottom liner piece pulls away and you can see the latch.
There are two screws/bolts that holds the latch.

The two pieces snaps back in pretty easily.

You probably broke the plastic piece shaped like a J.
You can try to glue the pieces back, but note that the piece broke due to age. I changed the whole assembly - good for another 7 yrs. I could not find just the plastic piece.
