Pretty sure you need to remove the bumper to get to the clips. Try popping one corner and see if it is a push type it depend on the moddel

Remove rear bumper from 2012 Dodge Journey


Randall, remove all screw,clips,fasteners securing bumper and then any wiring harness plugs etc. attached to bumper. This is some times a 2 person job, to prevent damage to the bumper, especially when installing. A V-pry tool may be required to remove plastic fasteners easily. Check the attached links,instruction and guides, Good luck

What is the comon fault


The most serious common faults are with the standard 3.4 engine in the early 996 Carrera models (not applicable to Turbo engined vehicles which is a different engine design):

1. The engine cylinder liners develop hairline cracks. (Engine replacement or rebuild required).

2. The intermediate shaft bearings fail in these engines (a well known design fault). Failure requires engine replacement.

3. The rear main seals in the engines fail as exhibited by a slowly worsening oil leak. The seal needs to be replaced when they leak. It's an expensive job.

Problems 1 and 2 are serious have resulted in many engine replacements. Problems 2 and 3 remained when Porsche upgraded to the standard 3.6 engine in the series two 996 Carrera models (problems not applicable to Turbo engines)..

There are a few other issues such as Air Conditioning condensers that clog up with road debris and eventually become porous and fail.

Where is the horn located on a 1999 Porsche 996 - I think I have a short in it as if you hit a bump hard enough it will quickly honk


You can find the horn on the leftside (face to the car) underneath the protectionshield. If you have small hands you can dismount it form there (not easy).Otherwise you have to take off the bumper.

How to change the 2001 hyundai santa fe fog lights


you will need to completely remove the front facia (bumper to get access to the fog lamp assemblies as they are bolted in from behind. No big deal. There are a few screws along the top of the facia under the hood along with some plastic push pins ( you may want some extra ones on hand before starting this) There is a screw where the facia meets the front quarter panels in the wheel wells and there are about 8 push pins along the bottom of the facia that need to come out. Then lift out. No sweat right! For real though it isnt. Just a side note, while you have the facia off you now have easy access to the windshield washer pump motor. This is a perfect time to remove the pump, clean the screens and flush your resivor tank out. Getting clogged pumps seem to be common place on hyundai's vehicles. Please let me know if this helps.
