    How do I do to separate the body from the frame? What is th big problem? How many bolts are there? On other car with separate frame it is not that difficult. I like to fix some rust and it would be much easier if I could separate the body. Hope you can help me.

    What kind of answer is this, it´s ridiculus. I want to know how I do to separate the body and how many bolts and nuts there are. If you are an expert you must know that.

    Four main bolts from the appearance of it... one at each side 36 inches from the front tip of the frame. and two more 75.6 inches from the front of the frame.... you of course know that you need to remove most other sheet metal before you actually remove the body..

NO.you must remove the transmission from the subframe,or drop the whole drivetrain from underneath(the reverse of factory fitting,this is not recommended as the body is too heavy to move around)

How do i separate the body from the chassis of a passat 2000 model 1.8t sedan? i hit a curb stone with the rear left wheel and ever since the body and chassis do not seem to be straight. took it to...


1. This vehicle is a unibody, meaning is has no separate frame or chassis. 2. Why would you want to separate it, if it weren't a uni? 3. Your problem is most likely a bent control arm, see an alignment shop to have it corrected.

How do i adjust my headlights on 2001 suzuki xl7 problem


The adjustment screws/nuts should be located either on the top of the headlamp assembly, behind the headlamp assembly, or near the frame rail by the radiator support.

You will have vertical adjustment screws for each independent beam (separate highs and separate lows, but will be same screw if highs and lows are the same bulb). You may also have additional horizontal adjustment screws as well

Park your car on a level ground 30 feet from a wall and measure the height from the ground to the bulb and mark on a wall (do this for highs beams and low beams if the bulbs are separate, if highs and lows are the same bulb, only do it for the lows)

For Low Beams: If the headlights read VOR, then aim the brightest part or cutoff part just below the mark on the wall. If it says VOL or nothing, aim them 2 inches below the mark on the wall.

For High Beams (if separate from low beams): Aim the headlight directly at the line you marked on the wall.

Front right bushing is broken and causes a "popping" noise


call dealer with VIN number to see if your car is involved. ALso, please explain which bushing. Safety Recall 98S36 - Certain 1986 - 1995 Taurus and Sable and 1988 - 1994 Continental Vehicles - Sub-Frame Rear Plate Nut Replacement AFFECTED VEHICLES Certain 1986-1995 Taurus and Sable and 1988-1994 Continental vehicles that were originally sold or are currently registered in the following U.S. states and Canadian Provinces: U.S. States: Connecticut Delaware District of Columbia Illinois Indiana Iowa Kansas Kentucky Maine Maryland Massachusetts Michigan Minnesota Missouri Nebraska New Hampshire New Jersey New York Ohio Pennsylvania Rhode Island Vermont Virginia West Virginia Wisconsin Canadian Provinces: Manitoba New Brunswick Newfoundland Nova Scotia Ontario Prince Edward Island Quebec REASONS FOR RECALL The body mounts on the rear corners of the sub-frame that support the engine and transmission may separate. This can occur if the lower retainer plate of the mount or the retaining plate nut becomes severely corroded from long term exposure to road salts and retention of moisture in the mounts. This corrosion can weaken the retainer plate of the mount or the retaining plate nut severely enough to allow the bolt head to pull through the washer or out of the nut. Should both rear mounts separate, the rear of the sub-frame will drop and steering may suddenly become difficult. This could result in an accident. SERVICE ACTION To correct this condition, dealers will replace the attaching bolts, plate nuts and the reinforcement plates on the bottom of the sub-frame rear body mounts, on all affected vehicles.

Suzuki sj 410 transfer box jammed


The thing to do to get it unjammed now is to remove the transfer shifter biushing and then replace it.  Remove the cover, then the boot, then depress and rotate the retaining ring (can be done with needle nose pliers inserted nose-down).  Then pull out the black rubber ring, wipe it off, then reinstall everything.  Get the transfer case into some gear and get back home.  When you get back home buy a new transfer case bushing from somebody like Suzuki John on Ebay.  The new bushing will fix the problem.
