What works in many cases is a metal coat hanger. Take and cut the straight piece of the hanger and then cut it in to 2 piece. The hanger must be thick enough to release the safe locks. Press a into both holes at the same time, work each side until you feel it release. hope that helps.

How do I remove the driver side door panel on a 1986 pontiac parisienne broughham


You need special tools to remove the door panel without permanently damaging the panel. you can get them at any auto parts store. The armrest has screws that have to be removed. Pull up on the panel with all the buttons on it while prying on it with a flat blade screw driver. You'll find more screws to take out there. Now for the special tools. Use them to locate and to pry up on the door panel. the tool releases the metal or plastic fasteners without ruining the door panel.

How to do front brake on 2008 toyota sienna


No special tools at all. Are you familiar with doing brakes? I wouldnt recommend it for a first timer, its not worth the lives of you and others. Ive also seen people take the wrong bolt out of calipers and spend triple what a brake job cost because they werent experienced and wanted to save a buck. A 17mm and pad spreader or big channel locks is all you need. Use Toyota pads and have the rotors cut..OR... Dont complain when they make noise all the darn time!
