I have a 1990 Chevy Lumina I knocked the ignition all I took the steering wheel off now I can't get the metal cover off behind the steering wheel how you get it off

Is that metal cover spring loaded, push down on it, see if it moves? If it does, there is probably a ring clip that holds the metal piece, have to push down hard on the metal piece to get room to remove ring clip. I believe they make a tool to push down on that metal piece. In my younger years I used to be able to push that metal piece down by hand. I'm just an old timer, now.

I'm not positive we're talking about the same piece?

How to install an alternator

Sorry but this does indeed have a tensioner pulley. I just replaced an alternator on my 2005 ford freestar, I did this without adjusting said pulley. There are 3 bolts on the alternator, install new alternator with only one bolt, put the belt over the alternator pulley, use a piece of metal to pry the alternator into place and drop in second bolts when in correct position. (I used a a piece of iron flatstock. Took 15 mins from start of project till the end.

I have a kia rio 2003, and a piece off metal that hold in place the clutch cable insid the car and under the dash board, has loosen off its welded bits and the clutch cable is all loose. All I have been...

I would just get that piece welded back on. Clamp it in it's proper position with some Vice-Grips first, and make sure it is exactly in the right place before you weld. Also DISCONNECT THE BATTERY BEFORE YOU WELD. If you don't you will face a nightmare trying to fix electrical problems. You may need to move some things so the welder can do his job but it shouldn't be a lot. Also have something to use as a blanket to keep sparks from hitting wires and plastic and rool the carpet back on that part of the floor. Have a source of water ready before he starts welding, things can happen no matter how careful you are. A garden hose will do, just try it and make sure it is turned on.

Have a delcotron alternator ,what to know where no.1 terminal and no.2terminal wire goes it is on my 1946 cj2a jeep my amp hand does not show a charge had alternator checked out and is ok

  • Use a wrench to remove the negative and positive battery cables: They are clearly labeled "+" and "-." Always remove the negative cable first, as this isolates the power to the metal parts of your car. Tuck the cables away from the battery as you don't want them to accidentally touch a battery terminal when you're wiring your alternator.

  • 3

    Locate the alternator terminals. There are two: one marked "live," "pos" or "+" and the other marked "neg," "field" or "-."

  • 4

    Locate the two cables. The positive (red) cable goes to your battery via a wire loom or harness. The negative (black) cable attaches to a metal part of your car.

  • 5

    Check how the cables attach to the alternator terminals. Some connect using eyelets that hook over the terminal and tighten with a bolt; others connect by inserting the wire under the terminal and tightening a bolt.

  • 6

    Loosen the two bolts using a suitable-sized wrench or, if the cables connect using eyelets, remove the bolts.

  • 7

    Insert the exposed end of the negative (black) cable under the loosened bolt on the negative terminal of the alternator, then tighten the bolt. If the cable has an eyelet, hook it over the terminal and screw the bolt back in place and tighten using a wrench.

  • 8

    Insert the exposed end of the positive (red) cable under the loosened bolt on the positive terminal of the alternator, then tighten the bolt. If the cable has an eyelet, hook it over the terminal and screw the bolt back in place and tighten using a wrench.

  • 9

    Replace the positive battery cable on the positive battery terminal using a wrench. Replace the negative battery cable on the negative battery terminal.

    Replacing the window regulator

    1.Remove trim from around the door handle by prying it out along the top and front edges. Once loosened, it comes unhinged from the back edge.
    2.Remove the Phillips head screw from metal bracket, that is revealed after removing the trim piece
    3.Pry the inside light assembly from the door panel and remove the bulb socket from the housing
    4.Pry the door panel from the frame using a panel removal tool by starting at the bottom and releasing the 7-8 plastic studs from the frame.
    5 - Remove the 2 mounting bolts for the rear door controller and disconnect the cables.
    6.Use a small flat blade (e.g. scraper) and flathead screwdriver to remove the plastic vapor barrier (be careful not to tear as it must be replaced).
    7.Reach inside the door and locate the cable that is attached to the bottom of the lift mechanism and then cut it.
    8.Push the window class to the full UP position (this will locate it horizonally and vertically) and tape it in place.
    9.Near the top of the sheet metal there will be 2 openings (1 square, 1 round). When the glass is in the full up position, there will be (2) 10 mm bolts in view. Loosen these bolts which will open the rubber coated clamps on the bottom of the glass. The lift mechanism will free fall to the bottom position when these bolts are loose.
    10.Remove the window lift motor plug and (3) 10 mm nuts that hold the lift mechanism in place and remove through the opening at the front of the inner door sheet metal.This will require some maneuvering.
    11.Loosen but do not remove the 2 bolts for the window clamps on the new unit before installing.
    12.Make sure the new unit is not in the full up position before installing.
    13.Install the new lift mechanism in the door and tighten the (3) 10 mm mounting nuts.
    14.Connect the power plug into the new lift motor
    15.Temporarily connect the rear door controller, turn on the ignition and slowly raise the new lift mechanism using the window up switch on the driver's door.
    16.Then the lift is in the full up position, tighten the window glass clamps using the same access holes as when you removed the glass clamps.
    17.Slowly run the window down and up to make sure it doesn't bind
    18.Disconnect the read door controller and reverse the process for assembly
    19. Make sure the rear door light socket and bulb are not trapped behind the plastic.
    Hope this was helpful!

    How to get to drivers side window

    first, on the interior handle, carefully pop off the cover. remove the two screws underneath. there may or may not be screws on the farthest lower part of the door panel and there may or may not be a screw under the door latch pull handle. it may be hiding under a cover under the handle. but i'm pretty sure it has only the two under the large handle. once the screws are removed, seperate the door panel from the door starting at the lower left corner. there are clips which will pop out of the door when you pull on it. sometimes you have to pull really hard. once the door panel is removed on the bottom and sides you need to lift the panel up to get it off of the top. you only need to raise it by about an inch and you will know when its released. now you must disconnect the wires going to the lights/switches. now should be able to see the regulator. you will not iether be able to see the window, or just see a large silver or black piece of metal with a bunch of 10mm screws around it. do not remove the window motor. disconnect the plastic clips which slightly protrude through the metal first. press on the center of them and the pin will slide out, then you can push the rest of the clip through. once the plastic clips are disconnected you can remove the 10mm screws and slightly take down the large piece of metal. you will probably have to disconnect the wire that goes to the door latch. it can be very difficult. once the wire is disconnected you will be able to see the window. oh wait. i missed a step. before you remove the 10mm screws, you need to disconnect the window from the regulator. to do this, you must pop out the two large (2 inch diameter) rubber plugs on the top of the large metal piece. then you need to raise the window until you see the regulator clips that attach to the window. now you can LOOSEN them with a torx socket. i believe it's a T30 size. once you loosen them two turns, press in slightly on the screws until they pop in a bit meaning that the clip is loosened from the glass. now you want to remove the window glass through the top of the door. it will come out you just have to get it in the right position. now you may continue with the removal steps of the large metal piece aka window regulator. if your window regulator appears to be broken, they sell a fix kit at the vw dealer for around 25 dollars.

    I have a rattle coming from the back part of my 2008 hummer h3x. it sounds like it could be coming from the back tailgate or from the spare tire. it is driving me crazy though and the nearest dealer is...

    There is a metal stabilizer on the inside of the rear cargo door. It is a U shaped metal piece which a rubber stabilizer sits inside when the door is closed. It is located below the latch on the vehicle, not the door. The torx screws seem to loosen on this metal piece, just tighten them and you are good to go.
