How do I fix the door/lock of my 1991 Acura Integra? I can only open the driver side door from the outside

There are only 2 places that you have the problem on the inside door handle. one is at the handle,and the little plastic holder that holds the rod to the handle broke, or the plastic clip the the door lock mechanism broke. the first can be removed without taking the door apart. the inside door handle has a screw holding it in place. you can remove the handle and see if its broken. the second requires you to remove the door panel, to replace the clip that hold the rod to the lock. I door handle in the car is a dealer item only(sorry to tell you that), the clip for the lock, you can get at the auto parts store. hope this helps

How to replace rear pads on 2002 saturn

You will need to unbolt the caliper, usally 2 bolts, take the caliper off the rotor, remove the pads. You will need a larger c-clamp or a caliper piston tool to compress the piston, if there are two indentations in the face of the cylinder piston, you will need a brake tool to turn the piston, clockwise a few times press in the piston and repeat until the piston is completely back into the caliper. Install the new pads and put the caliper back on. Make sure you pump up your brake peddle a few times after the job, before you take off.

1996 olds aurora back brake pad replacement, how to compress the pads to get the caliper back over the pads?

Special tool is a 1" cube with tabs on each side that fits into indentations on the brake piston and can be purchased for $10-12 @ most discount parts stores. Use 3/8" ratchet with short extension and 'special tool to carefully turn piston onto internal hand brake screw. Take care to not tear dust boot. When piston is fully collapsed, make sure to align piston indentations perpendicular to brake pad as there are bumps on pad that fit into them. Also while screwing in piston either remove about 2/3 of brake fluid in master cylinder and refil afterwords or open the bleeder valve on brake piston assembly. Bleed if necessary.

Changing rear brakes on a 2001 volkswagon jetta

You probably have a screw-in caliper piston design like my 99 A4 has. You need a tool that is made for screwing the calipers in - AutoZone has them as part of their tool loan program. Look at the face of the piston - if you see two indents or notches across from each other on the face, then you have screw-in pistons and need the kit to do them.
