Where do i find the vin numbers on a ford 1977 f 700 flatbed

At the front of the engine block. This should be easy to spot by popping open the hood, and looking at the front of the engine.At the front of the car frame, near the container that holds windshield washer fluid.At a rear wheel well. Try looking up, directly above the tire.Inside the driver-side doorjamb. Open the door, and look underneath where the side-view mirror would be located if the door was shut.At the driver-side doorpost. Open the door, and look near the spot where the door latches, not too far from the seatbelt return.Underneath the spare tire.

2004 Chevy Tahoe rearend out of line

The rear sway bars have not been replaced. When you look at the driver side rear the tire is even looks like it not stright. I can see where the tire is scrubbing the inside where the i believe it the control arm mounts to the frame. When you look at the rear of the tahoe while its on level ground it leans to the L side. When i measure the height of the frame from the ground there is about 1 inch difference. Also measuring from center of front wheen to the center of rear wheel there is about 1 1/2 inches difference. Any other Ideas? I am taking it to a shop to have the frame checked to make sure its not bent.

Hyundai elentra bent frame and door handle

No way to tell without looking at it and taking measurements.
It may be cheaper to replace the doors than to spend the time on repairs.

Were is the vin number stamped on a 2010 mazda 3

Will either be on the left/driver's side of the windshield just attatched to the lower half of the dash visible through the windshield or, look either on the driver's door or where it latches. This will contain letters and numbers about 17 digits long.

Hi I need to locate the vin number on a 1997 kia sportage. I cannot locate it on the chassis

The vin number should be located on the driverside at the bottom of the windshield. Looking from the outside of the car on the driverside you should see it through the windshield. Hope this will help you.

I need to get to the electric window wiring on the drivers side. Can I just pop up the mechanism on the door?

Yes you can, but you need a flat tool like a "V" end shaped screwdriver because this has locking prongs under the front of mechanism(windshield side).

gently lift up on electric panel on the front side(windshield) use the tool or similar(2 small flatheads will work) between panel and door push in lock clips(front toward back---under electric panel) the panel should come out of the door holder frame to access the wiring connector under it---the electric panel removal and installs from back to front and snaps in place with locking front clips to door panel.

I had damage to my vehicle need to replace driver side front and rear door also the support beam or frame is bent what do i do

The doors are not a big problem, you can get them in a scrap yard, afew bolts and they are done. Your big problem is the bent structure. That will require a professional and a frame straightener. It's not a DIY project. Call around and get some quotes before you proceed or make a decision. Hope this helps.
