I have to replace subframe mounts on a 1971 Mercedes 280Se. The old ones are seized in place and cannot be budged with 4 top bolts and center bolt removed. Is it difficult to drop the entire subframe out to get at the mounts?

SOURCE: 2006 toyota corolla - rotors

The large bolt that you see is the nut that holds the axle shaft to the hub. You do not need to remove it to remove the rotors. You just need to remove the caliper & the caliper bracket. Normally, the rotors come off of the hubs easily, but sometimes, they rust onto the hub. My techs beat and beat and beat until they come off. With large hammers. Note that after they are beaten off, the rotors are no longer viable for re-use.

SOURCE: 96 Chevy S-10 starter problems

Just did this, take the long bolt out of the passenger side engine mount, loosen the two transmission mount bolts and jack the right side of oil pan slowly, when you do this there will be enough clearance between the bell housing and frame, be sure to use a jack stand to be safe.
Put the starter motor in the space with the selonoid up and wiggle forward into position then insert bolts and hook up connections. Let the motor down, put the motor mount bolt back in, tighten transmission mount.

SOURCE: Need to remove the right front door panel of a 2007 RAV 4

You'll need to remove screws that are by the door handle, arm rest, under door and side of door and then gently pull back on the panel as there will also be retaining clips attached and you don't want to break them. You'll need to lift the door panel upwards in order to get it off the window ledge.

How to install transmission solenoid in a 2001 pontiac bonneville 2.8


The solenoids are under the side pan on the transmission on the drivers side. You will have to go through the drivers side fender well. Remove the wheel, brake caliper, spindle, take the rack and pinion loose, install engine support, place jack under left side (drivers side) of subframe, remove subframe mounting bolts, loosen (do not remove) right side subframe mounting bolts, lower left side of subframe 4 to 6 inchs, go to engine support and lower engine and transmission down just enough so that transmission side pan can be removed. Thanks and good luck with your repairs.

Steering Rack boot replacement


In my opinion, removing the front subframe makes this job much easier.

Jack up and suitably support the front of the car so it is in a wheels free state.
With wheels removed;

  • Remove the anti-roll bar drop links from the anti-roll bar
  • Free off the lower arm ball joints off
  • Remove the track rod ends from the swivel hubs
  • Remove the nut and bolt and special clip on the lower steering column universal joint
  • loosen off and disconnect the feed and return pipes to the power ram (beware stinking power steering fluid pouring everywhere!)
Steering and suspension wise, the subframe should be free!



  • Remove the nut and bolt that secures the lower engine mounting to its bracket (the bolt that goes through the big round rubber mount at the back of the engine)
  • Disconnect all relevant gear linkage rods (this will be clear when you are under there!)
  • Support the subframe with a jack or somesuch and free off the 6, 18mm bolts that secure the subframe to the body shell.
  • remove all subframe mounting bolts.
  • lower the jack that is supporting the subframe, it should all drop quite nicely and then get stuck on the steering column universal joint! A good old college shove frees this and then you should be able to remove your subframe assembly from under the car.

How to replace the electric shift solinode


the solenoid i think your looking for is inside the side cover of the transmission but you werent specific with which solenoid your looking for, there are a few solenoids in the transmission. its not a job for beginners and its difficult to get to on floor jacks. i will try to explain the process as i've done it before.

READ WHOLE THING FIRST BEFORE ATTEMPTING REPAIR

1. safely jack the front of the vehicle up and place on jack stands
(make sure parking brake is on) and disconnect negative battery
cable.
2. remove wheel on drivers side
3. remove caliper, bracket, and rotor
4. remove axle nut
5. unbolt tie rod end
6. unbolt lower ball joint
7. unbolt sway bar end link and remove axle
8. support engine with jack and a piece of wood
9. unbolt air pump and transmission mount
10. unbolt subframe on drivers side carefully
11. LOOSEN do not remove subframe bolts on passenger side
so the subframe drops a little bit on the drivers side
12. look on top of the engine bay and remove air box and tubes
13. remove or move anything else in the way of the top side cover
bolts
14. disconnect transmission connector
15. remove transmission side cover bolts (you may need to loosen
passenger side subframe bolts a little more to gain access to
the lower 3 or 4 bolts, also fluid will come out so have a catch
pan ready)
16. remove side cover carefully (might have to loosen the subframe
bolts a little more even to get the cover out)
17. locate the solenoid you are replacing (there are a few diff ones)
18. remove solenoid and replace solenoid.
19. make sure to replace the side cover gasket and the seal around
the axle hole
20. reverse the process for re-installation.

before you attempt this repair make sure for certain that the solenoid you are looking for is in fact located inside the side cover. the instructions i typed are for solenoid replacement in the transmission but you didn't specify which one so don't hold me responsible if these directions arent for the solenoid your looking for.
