    This is what I was thinking. Just wondered if someone had a better idea. Thanks, Mike

    I drilled a tiny hole in the snapped off stem & used a small screw extractor. It came out easily.

You can drill out the snapped-off screw and re-tap the hole. Then just put in a new (and slightly larger) screw. You will probably need a larger screw if you drill it out past the existing threaded hole. If you're lucky, you can sometimes just push a screwdriver against the edge of the screw and rotate the screw out that way until you can grip it with pliers and unscrew it. Then just put in a new screw.

Lost the rear window washer spray head on 2008 Honad CRV. How can i replace it myself?


Are you sure that is the washer head missing?

That looks like the mount area of an old cell phone antenna, the washer nozzle has a hose connected to it and there is no hole or hose there just glass. what happens when you turn on the rear wiper and try to use the washers?

Does the antenae go down or come off so I can go through a car wash? Or will it be OK?


You can unscrew the mast from the mount. The mount is right on top of the fender. http://www.aliexpress.com/product-gs/234605996-Car-antenna-mast-wholesalers.html
That site shows the antenna mast, and the lower left portion of the picture shows the end that screws into the antenna mount.

The antenna was snapped off of my 2008 Honda CR-V, snapping the bolt that is used to screw the antenna to the base. How do you fix this?


If the remainder of the bolt protrudes above the surrounding metal(you'll need about 1mm), you can cut a groove with a hacksaw into the bolt and screw it out with a screwdriver. If this is not possible you can use an "Easy-out" and here is where you start purchasing items.
This entails drilling into the bolt shaft using a drill bit about half the diameter of the bolt shaft itself. The correct size "Easy-out" tool is then screwed into the newly made hole(it screws in counter clockwise) and as the tool grips the inside of the bolt shaft it will unscrew the bolt shaft.
A third alternative would be to drill out the bolt completely and use what is called a heli-coil to repair the hole. I doubt the last will be viable as there is not much metal to work with.
As a last resort you can purchase an aftermarket antenna and install it in a differant place on the car's bodywork.

We have a 1998 Saturn SW1 station wagon and the motor mount broke and we need to fix it. Any ideas?


The top and side mounts are easy, unless you snap off a bolt. To do the side dog bones, remove the right front service panel behind the wheel, yes you have to take the tire off, and remove the battery tray on the left side. Remove the long screws holding the tray on through the left front wheel well. Replacing the dog bones is take out the two bolts and then bolt the new ones in. Top mount is simply loosen the nuts, remove and replace, tricky part is to support the engine while you swap the mount. Bottom mount takes a little more time and a jack. If you never changed the tensioner, you may want to do this while you have that right front service panel open.

Honda CRV rear view mirror removal


There are three ways usually...

You'll need to remove a screw securing the base onto the mount (usually on metal bases)

You'll need to lift up a clip on the bottom of the base and then slide the base off the mount (usually on plastic rectangular bases

You'll need to twist the base about 45 - 90 degrees so that it slips off of the mount (usually on bases that are circular)

Top engine mount


You need to loosen the motor mount slightly--just a full turn or two. Place a jack under the oil pan and lift the engine until the strain is relieved on the motor mount and finish removal. Replacement installation is the opposite except you'll want to tighten the new motor mount into place fully (if possible) before lowering the jack.

Snapped fixed mast antenna


All you should have to do is unscrew it from the base mount on your car. the antenna itself is all that you should have to replace, not the wire.
