SOURCE: Drivers Side Rear Window Electric Motor Removal

The local dealer was very helpful in figuring this problem out. There is a clip in the ball part of the arm. When removed, the arm releases very easily.

Thank you anyway

hi to remove the hob nut you need a large bar about two feet long and i think they are 30mm but you will need to replace them with new ones and torque them correctly or you will encounter problems theyalso have to be pinned when torqued it really is not a diy job

SOURCE: rear drum removal 1998 ford escort

Removing the drums can be a little difficult if they are really worn and. have a large lip inside where the brake shoes have worn them down.
Anyway here goes, loosen wheel nut/s slightly, raise the car and make safe by using an axle stand or similar then lower it so the wheel is off the ground.
Remove all nut/s and take wheel to one side, you'll then see the whole of the drum, there should be 1 or 2 retaining Philips type screws between the locating holes for the wheel, these need to be removed possibly with an impact screwdriver if too tight.
Once screws are out release the hand brake, hopefully the drum will rotate, try waggling it from side to side along it circumference pulling the drum towards you, it may move a few mm then lock? try using a very heavy rubber mallet to thump the outside edge of the drum whilst turning it. This hopefully will loosen the brake shoes holding the drum on you may need to keep doing this for a good while.
If you have no success then try carefully doing the same with a copper/hide hammer. Still no joy then possibly the lip inside is too great meaning the drums maybe beyond their wear limit so a good belt with a heavy lump hammer is the only way.
I hope this helped? please press the Blue button if happy with my FREE Efforts, Thank You!

SOURCE: Water leak from driver side of the motor

Too many items that can leak for me to give an opinion...but, if it's water, not antifreeze it could be condensation from A/C. Coolant is generally green.
How is the cooling system? Is she adding any coolant or is it running low? Last but most obvious, take a careful look and find the source of the leak. If you don't know what it is, you can't fix it!

SOURCE: ford puma 1998 Drivers and rear footwells filling with water.

There could be a number of places the water could be coming from does the leak start from front and work its way back?
Try the following -

. A faulty seal at the bodywork joints below the reinforcing panel may allow water entry in the area of the side trim panel and bulkhead.
Check the area for faulty sealing. If necessary, seal the bodywork joints with sealer.

start with the easiest.

Where are the freeze plugs located on a 1998 Ford Expedition with a 5.4L ?

There are plugs on both the driver's and passenger's side of the engine block and both cylinder heads [outboard side of each head]. There are also several plugs located in the rear of the block. The transmission must be removed to access these rear plugs. You should have changed your antifreeze more often!

I have an 01 f150 when I pour water in the radiator it's pouring back out between the motor and trans bell housing out of the dust cover does anyone have any idea what the leak is I figure a freeze...

If you never overheated the engine and it never froze, then most likely a freeze plug has failed. You will need to either pull out the engine or remove the transmission (easier) to inspect the rear of the block. About the only way to crack a block is running it without any water in it and super overheating the engine. If it is a freezer plug, then I would replace it with a brass one if available.

Where is the radiator drain plug on a 1999 taurus?

There is a drain plug, and is located drivers side near the front of the car. You first have to remove the black shield that blocks your view of the bottom.

The drain plug will be easily visible then.

How change the block water seals, i fill the radiator and somewhere in the left side of the motor water go away. is someplace under the manifoul how can i fix it?

Here it is. most freeze plugs are under exhaust manifolds on block along side of cylinders. you probably have them rusted out. there is a special tool for removing them as well as installing them. looks like a long bar with a ball on the end and steel inserts that fit in plug to drive it in and not too far. if you don't have one can try to rent one from like auto parts store. when removing plug impact very side of it to spin it in the block sideways,them get a prybar or pliers and pull it out. make sure hole is clean and free of coolant. get new plug and add a little rtv to sides of freeze to seal it. lightly tap it in to hold postion,insert metal driver adapter in plug with grease to hold it in place so it wont fall out and get driver bar and smack in plug. the insert adapter is very important,otherwise you will drive it right into water jacket in engine,that's very bad. insert will bottom out on block limiting depth of freeze plug. the driver bar is bent at end for tight spots. good luck!

Leaking antifreeze and it's not a pipe or the water pump

May require vehicle on hoist or at least on ramps, and a flashlight/troublelight to see exactly where its coming from. Could be just a frost plug, but until you can pinpoint the spot, don't drive it, or run it for that matter & cost yourself more money.
