Hi Cfuts, I think we should be asking why it popped out instead of how to glue it in place. It sounds to me as if the engine is developing too much sump back pressure. Have a cylinder compression test carried out and determine if the piston rings are worn. Also check the Positive Crank Ventilation System for blockage or defective operation. Regards John

Hi i have a vics novelty wigglin hand that has a split in one of the fingers what kind of glue can i use to glue it its made of kinda soft rubber id probely need somthing that would bond right away thank...


Suggest that you use a flexible adhesive that will bend. Look at your local hardware store for silicon seal - make sure the surfaces are clean and dry. If you have any issues, you can peel it off after it dries and try again.

I'm looking for a timing cam cover for a 1996 Volvo 960


Hi there well here's a link to get the parts = http://www.swedishautoparts.com/960/Volvo-960-engine-gaskets-&-seals.html .The oil pan does not have a gasket, it uses the same sealant/glue as the head top. Are you sure you have a leak at those seams? Oil can migrate and be actually from a different source. Oil filler gasket, cam seals, oil cooler orings, oil separator hoses and housing are typical leakers.

And there is no way to avoid messing with the cams, removing the head top frees up the cams. But no special tools are required, it just makes the job simpler and quicker, something a dealer would invest in if they are going to do several heads on this model.

Use the Volvo sealant/glue, it is easy to work with and is worth the extra cost, also it is orange in color and makes it easy to view when applying. Cleaning the old material off is going to be the hardest and dirtiest part of the job. It is tedious and one has to exercise great caution to not scratch the mating surfaces, so using plastic scrapers or some hard wood, I have used chop sticks. If it does look like you need to do the oil pan, that is going to be a real pain, but also order the seals for the oil pick up tube, might as well renew those while the oil pan is off.

Good luck

How do I fix a leak on the passenger side when it rains


It really helps if you are specific about where it's leaking.

If it's in the windshield, your best bet is have one of the outfits that replaces windshields mobile, come by and pull the windshield and then reglue it.

What often happens is if you have like a flat, your car will be jacked up just to lift that one tire. Cars are all unibody now and it can flex the body and cause the glue that's holding the windshield in place to pop loose. I had that happen. No amount of goop you put on the outside is going to seal it again, I know from personal experience. There's too much trim in the way on the outside and inside. If you like the car and want to keep it, seal that soon or the interior will be trashed in no time.

How do I change a headlight bulb in 2008 prius


I just did this and it was a pain. There are several YouTube videos out there but nit real clear. First remove the cover to the fuse box. Then locate the light housing. The black plastic housing with fins needs to be turned counter clockwise about 3/4- 1 inch or so to pop off the housing. The problem is if the seals are dry it is almost impossible. Don't bang on the fins as they will break. I used wd40 along the top of the seals to penetrate the seals for about 20 min. Wipe up the excess as you don't want oil on any of the new bulbs. Mark the outside and inside of the housing with a scribe line to note your progress with the turn. Sometimes a vacuum will keep the housing from popping out. You can drill a very, very small hole in the housing to release the vacuum and them resell the hole with super glue. To remove the silver looking backing to the bulb you need to turn counter clockwise 1/8 turn and pull. There are two clips that are holding the bulb in place. Push down the side clips and move away from the housing to the outside. Once both clips are released it should rotate backward like a hinge away from the bulb. Replace the bulb with the new one and make sure the bulb is inserted with the long rod on the bottom. I just looked through the lens as I inserted the new bulb. Rotate the clip assembly forward a reattach the clips on each side and reattach the silver electrical connector and turn clockwise 1/8 turn to secure in place.
replace black plastic housing and rotate to align the scribed lines.
this works the same for both sides. However the right side, opposite the fuse box, has a black air box the needs to be removed first by popping up the round black poppet clip and then pull air box out of the way. Do not disassemble the from of the car to remove the light assembly. I saw this on YouTube and it was complicated and a mistake! Don't do it! To hard to reassemble!
good luck!

The top of my motor on my neon1997 is apart but I can't get my camshaft out to replace seals , was told this was easy job .Do I have to take off the whole timing belt assembly ? can I without a Puller?


You don't need to remove the cam to replace the seals. Remove the timing belt, making sure to line up all the timing marks before removing the belt. Then remove the cam gears. You will then be able to remove the inner timing cover. Once that is out of the way you can pop out the old seals and pop the new seals in. Making sure to lubricate the lips of the new seals with some assembly lube or a little grease.

Mush easier than pulling the cam!

Why would a front seal keep coming off a ford Explorer transmission?


Only way that can happen is if either the unit vent is plugged, the seal bore is oversized or you have some kind of problem with the converter alignment. Ordinarily there is very little pressure behind the seal so it should stay in place. Only thing I can think of to fix the problem is either to use an epoxy glue around the perimeter of the seal after it is part way installed, being careful to not permit any to get inside the unit, then "staking" the seal by using a small punch just outside the seal to expand the bore a small amount around the edge after the seal is in place. Otherwise, you need to change the pump.

SAAB 93 Gear knob keeps popping out


I had the same problem on my 03 aero, the gear knob sits on a spline on the stick. The issue is wear on the gearknob (alloy I think) I resolved mine last year by turning the knob slightly so that the splines effectively cut a new slot into the gear knob. This does mean it is not fully square but rotating only one spline does not make that much difference. It does need a good few taps to get it down on the splines but managed it by hand ok.I turned mine so it was angled to be read by the driver, so more 11 o clock than 12 o clock. 8 months later all is fine. Hope that makes sense.
