All 1992-98 vehicles are equipped with aerodynamically styled headlight bodies using replaceable halogen bulbs.

CAUTION The halogen headlight bulb contains gas under pressure. The bulb may shatter if the glass envelope is scratched or the bulb is dropped. Handle the bulb carefully. Grasp the bulb only by its plastic base. Avoid touching the glass envelope. Keep the bulb out of the reach of children.1989-91 Vehicles

  1. Remove the headlight door mounting screws and remove the headlight door.
  2. Remove the 4 retainer ring screws and remove the retainer ring from the headlight.
  3. Pull the headlight bulb forward and detach the wiring connector.
To install:
  1. Attach the wiring connector to the headlight bulb and place the bulb in position, locating the bulb glass tabs in the positioning slots.
  2. Attach the bulb retainer ring to the assembly with the retainer ring screws.
  3. Install the headlight door and secure with the screws.
  4. Check the headlight bulb aim and adjust as necessary.

See Figure 1

1992-98 Vehicles

  1. Make sure the headlight switch is in the OFF position.
  2. Lift the hood and remove the trim panel located above the headlight bulb.
  3. Rotate the bulb counterclockwise (when viewed from the rear) about an 1 / 8 - 1 / 4 turn.
  4. Carefully remove the bulb from the socket in the reflector by gently pulling straight out of the socket. Do not rotate the bulb during removal.
  5. Detach the electrical connector from the bulb.
To install:
  1. Attach the electrical connector to the bulb.
  2. Insert the glass envelope of the bulb into the socket while aligning the locking tabs.
  3. Rotate the bulb 1 / 4 turn.
  4. Turn the headlights on and check for proper operation.

A properly aimed headlight normally does not need to be re-aimed after bulb installation. A burned out bulb should not be removed from the headlight reflector until just before a replacement bulb is to be installed. Removal of a bulb for an extended period of time may allow contaminants to enter the headlight body and affect the performance of the headlight. The headlight bulb should be energized only while it is contained within the headlight body.

SOURCE: 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.

Why would my shifter automatic transmission for 88 Ford Expedition Eddie Bower move up & down but transmission stays in drive.


Hi Clint, Im AL the owner of Big As Auto Repair.

Clint, most likely the plastic retainer that holds your gear shift lever on at the transmission has come apart. Look under the vehicle where the shift lever goes on the side of the transmission and see if it came apart, if it did you'll have to see if the plastic retainer is still available at the dealership or if AutoZone has the part. Take the new one and lube it so it will install easier and snap it into the hole, then snap the lever into place and your good to go.

Raisethe trunk lid and access the fuel tank service cover in the upperright-hand side of the trunk ledge. Remove the cover and unplug theelectrical connector that powers the fuel pump. Start the carand let it run until the engine dies. This will remove thehigh-pressure fuel that is in the line so fuel will not spray when theline is disconnected. Test for voltage by probing the positive andnegative fuel pump wires with a test-light. Make sure there is avoltage signal to the pump. If there is, the pump is defective. Turnthe key off when the car stalls and replace the pump.
Disconnectthe fuel feed line with the quick disconnect feature that is part ofthe fuel line fitting. Squeeze the two tangs of the connector and pullthe hose off. Remove the fuel vapor hose that goes to the vaporcanister by loosening the clamp and pulling the hose off the vaporport. Remove the retainer ring that holds the pump assembly in placeusing a small shop hammer and screwdriver. Lightly tap the screwdriveragainst the indents on the retaining ring until it unscrews. (The ringlooks like a large lid that screws to a jar.) Completely loosen thering and remove the pump module by lifting it up and out.
Install a new pump module into the opening. The new module will comecomplete, including a new fuel filter. No parts will need to betransferred from the old pump module. Push the new module into the fueltank and tighten the retaining ring into place. Snap the fuel feed lineinto place, making sure there is a distinctive snap as the line locksin. Install the vapor line and tighten the hose clamp. Do not leavethis line off or fuel vapors will enter the car. Plug the wiringharness in, and replace the pump cover. Start the car.

    Need step by step inst. to replace fuel pressure reg.


    1. First, you will need to depressurize your fuel system. Remove the Fuel Pump Relay, start the vehicle and run until it shuts off, should only take a few seconds.
    2. The Fuel Pressure Regulator is held in place on the Fuel Rail using a Retaining Ring, or Snap Ring.
    3. You will need to remove the Vacuum Hose connected to the Fuel Pressure Regulator before you remove the retaining ring.
    4. You need a pair of Snap Ring Pliers to remove this retaining ring.
    5. Once the retaining ring is removed, slide the old Fuel Pressure Regulator out, and install the new one. Lubricate the O rings on the new part and the fuel line before assembly.
    6. After reinserting the Snap Ring, ensure that it is snapped in place completely.
    7. Reinstall the Vacuum hose and reconnect your Fuel Pump Relay. Turn the Ignition to On, and check for leaks around the Fuel Pressure Regulator.
    8. If no leaks are found, proceed to start the vehicle.

    How do you get the rear u-joint out of the drive shaft on 2005 chevy avalanche


    It will need to be pressed out.

    Universal Joint: Service and Repair
    Nylon Injected Ring
    Universal Joint Replacement - Nylon Injected Ring
    ^ Tools Required
    - J 9522-3 U Joint Bearing Separator
    - J 9522-5 U Joint Bearing Spacer Remover
    Disassembly Procedure
    Notice: Never clamp propeller shaft tubing in a vise. Clamping could dent or deform the tube causing an imbalance or unsafe condition. Always
    clamp on one of the yokes and support the shaft horizontally. Avoid damaging the slip yoke sealing surface. Nicks may damage the bushing or cut
    the lip seal.
    1. Support the propeller shaft in a line horizontal with the table of a press.
    2. Mark the propeller shaft as to which end is the transmission end and which end goes to the rear axle.
    3. Place the universal joint so that the lower ear of the yoke is supported on a 30 mm (1 1/8 inch) socket.
    4. In order to shear the plastic retaining ring on the bearing cup, place J 9522-3 on the open horizontal bearing cups. Press the lower bearing cup out
    of the yoke ear.
    5. If you do not completely remove the bearing cup, lift the cross and insert J 9522-5 between the seal and the bearing cup you are removing.
    Continue to press the bearing cup out of the yoke.
    6. Rotate the propeller shaft. Press the opposite bearing cup out of the yoke.
    7. Mark the orientation of the slip yoke to the tube for proper reassembly.
    8. Remove the cross from the yoke.
    9. Remove the remaining universal joint parts from the yoke. If you are replacing the front universal joint, remove the bearing cups in the slip yoke
    in the same manner.
    10. Inspect the retaining ring grooves for plastic.
    11. Inspect the bearing cup bores in the yoke ears for burrs or imperfections.
    12. Clean the remains of the sheared plastic bearing retainers from the grooves in the yoke.
    13. The sheared plastic may prevent the bearing cups from pressing into place and thus prevent the bearing retainers from properly seating.
    Assembly Procedure
    1. Remove the bearing cups from the universal joint.
    2. Assemble 1 bearing cup part way into 1 side of the yoke.
    3. Turn the yoke ear toward the bottom.
    4. Assemble the cross into the yoke so the trunnion seats freely into the bearing cup.
    5. With the trunnion seated in the bearing cup, press the bearing cup into the yoke until the bearing cup is flush with the yoke ear.
    6. Assemble the opposite bearing cup part way into the yoke ear.
    7. Ensure that the trunnions start straight and true into both bearing cups.
    8. Press the opposite bearing cup into the yoke ear while working the cross all the time in order to inspect for a free unbinding movement of the
    trunnions in the bearing cups.
    Important: If there seems to be a hang-up or binding, stop pressing, and inspect the needle bearings for misalignment in the bearing cup.
    9. Press the bearing cup into the yoke until the bearing retainer groove clears the inside of the yoke.
    10. Assemble the bearing retainer in the retainer groove.
    11. Continue pressing until you can snap both retainers into place.
    12. If seating the retainer is difficult, spring the yoke slightly with a firm blow from a dead blow hammer.
    13. It may be necessary to lubricate the snap ring with a slight amount of chassis grease so the snap ring seats in the bearing cup groove.



    Universal Joint: Service and Repair
    External Snap Ring
    Universal Joint Replacement - External Snap Ring
    ^ Tools Required
    - J. 9522-3 U-Joint Bearing Separator
    - J 9522-5 U-Joint Bearing Spacer Remover
    Disassembly Procedure
    Notice: Never clamp propeller shaft tubing in a vise. Clamping could dent or deform the tube causing an imbalance or unsafe condition. Always
    clamp on one of the yokes and support the shaft horizontally. Avoid damaging the slip yoke sealing surface. Nicks may damage the bushing or cut
    the lip seal.
    1. Support the propeller shaft in a line horizontal with the table of a press.
    2. Mark the propeller shaft in order to show which end connects to the transmission and which end goes to the rear axle.
    3. Disassemble the snap rings by pinching the ends together with a pair of pliers.
    4. If the ring does not readily snap out of the groove in the yoke, tap the end of the cup lightly in order to relieve the pressure from the ring.
    5. Place the universal joint so that the lower ear of the yoke is supported on a 30 mm (1-1/8 inch) hex head socket or a 27 mm (1-1/16 inch) socket.
    6. Place J 9522-3 on the open horizontal bearing cups. Press the lower bearing cup out of the yoke ear.
    7. If you do not completely remove the bearing cup, lift the cross and insert J 9522-5 between the seal and the bearing cup you are removing.
    Continue pressing the bearing cup out of the yoke.
    8. Rotate the propeller shaft. Press the opposite bearing cup out of the yoke.
    9. Mark the orientation of the slip yoke to the tube for proper reassembly.
    10. Remove the cross from the yoke.
    11. Remove the remaining universal joint parts from the yoke.
    12. If you are replacing the front universal joint, remove the bearing cups in the slip yoke in the same manner.
    13. Inspect the retaining ring grooves for dirt, corrosion, or pieces of the old ring.
    14. Inspect the bearing cup bores for burrs or imperfections.
    15. Clean the retaining ring grooves. Corrosion, dirt, rust, or pieces of the old retaining ring may prevent the bearing cups from pressing into place o
    prevent the bearing retainers from properly seating.
    Assembly Procedure
    1. Remove the bearing cups from the universal joint.
    2. Assemble 1 bearing cup part way into 1 side of the yoke. Turn the yoke ear toward the bottom.
    3. Assemble the cross into the yoke so that the trunnion seats freely into the bearing cup.
    4. With the trunnion seated in the bearing cup, press the bearing cup into the yoke until the bearing cup is flush with the yoke ear.
    5. Install the opposite bearing cup part way into the yoke ear.
    6. Ensure that the trunnions start straight and true into both bearing cups.
    7. Press the opposite bearing cup into the yoke ear while working the cross all the time in order to inspect for free unbinding movement of the
    trunnions in the bearing cups.
    Important: If there seems to be a hang up or binding, stop pressing. Inspect the needle bearings for misalignment in the bearing cup.
    8. Press the bearing cup into the yoke until the bearing cup retainer groove is visible over the top of the bearing cup.
    9. Assemble the bearing retainer in the retainer groove.
    10. Continue pressing until both retainers can be snapped into place.
    11. If the retainer is difficult to seat, the yoke can be sprung slightly with a firm blow from a dead blow hammer.
    12. It may be necessary to lubricate the snap ring with a slight amount of chassis grease so that the snap ring seats in the bearing cup groove.
