Well, if you snapped one of the caliper bolts you still may be able to proceed, try sticking a screw driver through one of holes on the caliper above the pads and rotor and try to press outward so you compress the caliper piston, if you can compress it far enough you may be able to slide the caliper enough to get it past the broken bolt and remove it. for future reference you only need to remove 1 bolt to remove the caliper, the other bolt will pull the slider out.

once you have the caliper removed you should be able to just replace the slider and get a new bolt.

Bonnet relese wih no cable at all completeley snapped off not a shred at bonnet end


usually down to a snapped cable usually seized mechanism and it is fairly easy to get the bonnet up, first if you look up under the front of the bonnet you can see the two bolts that hold it in place, then using a ratchet, extension, universal joint and a 13mm socket you can undo the bolts and lift the bonnet enough to then release the catch or cable, it can be a bit tricky to do,Also the cables have a habit of coming off the release handle, if you remove the handle held on by 2x 10mm bolts and see if it is still attached. i am going off a fiat as i do not know what car it is,

My 99 Sunfire front drivers side brake caliper mounting bolt wont screw in the mount itself, mount stripped


Step 1:

One of two ways to fix this is to change the caliper bracket. This is the best way and probably the cheapest way as you can find plenty of these cars in wrecking yards.

Step 2:

The other way requires inserting a Heli Coil. You buy the Heli Coil kit for the original bolt and drill and tap the hole to a larger size and install the Heli Coil insert to restore the hole to original size.

Recently my accelerator cable broke on my 1989 honda accord lx automatic carbed 4 door and i replaced it. it progressivly began to stall during braking in gear .but as soon as i took my foot off the brake...


Best check under the hood for a loose or broken vacuum line. The fact that the stalling started occurring right after the cable was repaired, would lead me to believe somebody may have disconnected a vacuum hose while installing the cable, or knocked one off, or broken one. If you can't see one that is broken, or loose, start the engine, and wiggle the hoses around while listening for a "hissing" sound. Let me know how you make out.

dont do it if you not confident some of the bolts are hard to remove and require heat to swell the metal to brake the corrosion, its not the best car to start learn how to change beats on, but if you do attempt it there is a small locking key on the drive shaft pulley it will fall out when you remove it, keep it in mind and dont lose it or you are screwed.

How to remove a harmonic balancer bolt from a 98 nissan maxima


In the past I have had to use a 1 inch impact to brake that bolt loose. It is a monster and it is regular thread. If you dont have a big compressor and super impact I have held the engine a made a breaker bar and broke it loose that way and make sure to keep spraying it.

Need to change brake lights on the car.


Open your trunk, you will see 2 screws that retain the brake light lens. Pull the felt on the side down, and you will see 2 plastic snap in clips. Remove the 2 screws and then use a pair of pliers to compress the plastic snap in clips to release them. From there you can remove the lens and replace the bulbs.

at the right side of the vehicle under the battery there is the starter bolted by three screws you need to get under the vehicle to loose the screws use a 14mm socket and wrench to get the bolt loose it takes a bit of maneuvering to get it out of the tight space but it is possible and simply reverse to get the new one in remember to disconnect the battery and the lines to the starter before starting to work.
