Question about Cars & Trucks

1 Answer

My Nissan Sentra has two rubber covers behind the headlights. They broke into pieces. I think they are used to protect water from entering the Headlight areas. Should I replace them.

I think they are used to protect water from going in the Headlights., but I am not sure. It could be for something else.

SOURCE: '91 Subaru: dash & running lights won't turn on with headlights

This is a problewm I have been researching. On the 91 Loyale there are two headlight relays. The relay for the left headlight also controls the instrument lights and the running lights. If the right relay is working and the left is not, the left headlight will be dim because of a back electrical path through the high beam indicator light on the dash, but the instrument and running lights will be out. I have been trying to find out where Subaru put these relays, but three Subaru service departments have been no help. One dealer's service department told me to remove the large bezel around the instrument panel. I did and the relays weren't there. Lots of luck.

How to change a motor ventilator on sentra 2009

Not sure which item you are talking about?? If you mean the blower for heat system it is under dash behind a cover. If you are talking about a radiator cooling fan it is behind radiator and requires removing a few bolts at top of radiator support - unplugging the wire to fan unit (push in tab on wire bundle and pull apart), and then lift fan unit up and out. You may have to remove plastic cover, and upper radiator hose to lift out, but fan is usually just held in at top by bolts and sits in rubber footings at bottom.

The rubber cover protector for the base of the headlight halogen lamp can be ordered to your nearest Toyota dealer.

Find inhibitor relay cannot find it

The starter inhibitor relay is located in the relay box just behind the headlight on the driver's side. It is Nissan part 25630-9662 and has six pins. There are two normally closed contacts that turn off cruise control when you start the engine. The other contacts are normally open and close to energize the starter solenoid when you start the engine. Power for the relay coil must pass through the transmission reverse/neutral safety switch when the transmission is in Park or Neutral. This switch is located on the side of the transmission and is reached from underneath on the front, driver's side. (Remove the plastic protective covering from underneath the engine in that area-it has about 10 screws.)

Headlight bulb change

Open the bonnet, look down at the back of the headlight, you will see 3 wires going into a plug which is surrounded by a large rubber seal.
Pull the plug out ( it plugs into the back of the headlight bulb ) . Once the plug is out, remove the rubber seal, it should have a tag to make this easier.
Under the seal there is a bulb holder, the bulb is held in by a springy piece of wire, one end if the wire clip has a small loop, push the loop toward the headlight and then ( with pressure on the loop ) move the clip sideways, ( there is a hook that holds the clip).
The clip will swing out ( one end will pivot ) and the bulb can be removed.
Do not touch the glass part of the bulb as the oils on your fingers can cause the bulb to blow prematurely.
Replace the bulb ,clip and seal ( the seal is marked TOP at the top) and plug the power back in.
Job Done!!
All the best , Marshall

I just had my CV axles replaced on my 96 maxima. I tried to get it inspected and was rejected for the bellow boot. Does this have anything to do with axles and how much is THIS one going to cost me? Please...

The bellows boot is the rubber accordian like shaped piece that protects the axle from water and debris entering into the axle, which is covered in grease, and prevents the axle from premature wear. This should have been take care of when the CV axles were replaced. (if it is indeed the bellows boot for the CV axle.)
