Saggy interior roof fabric


The only real way to do this right is to remove the headliner. That is the ceiling piece. Once it is sagging it needs to be replaced or restretched. The way you do this is to remove all of the trim around the top, the roof console you have showing, the visors, dome lights, vents and anything else that is holding this on. What I did is remove it myself and have a professional replace the fabric and then I put it back in myself. Worked out great and over all saved me about $700.00. He charged me 170 to put on the new fabric which included the cost. If you move forward with doing this yourself I can give you a couple of tips.

I have a water leak in the back of the Jeep Grand Cherokee 3.1 ltd 2000, wet carpet with water going in to the spare wheel compartment


Hi Wayne,

I checked for Technical Service Bulletins (TSBs) for your vehicle to see if there are any "known" problems with water leaks. The only bulletin I found was about the sunroof (if equipped) leaking into the passenger compartment.

Since there are no known problems for leaks in the rear, you will just have to do some diagnosis. Water leaks can be very evasive. They can originate in one place and accumulate water in another place. Here are some tips:

First, check the seals around your rear door and window. If there are any cuts or damage to the seals, this is most likely your problem.

You may need to remove the inner trim pieces from both the door and from the vehicle sides. Then run a hose over the top of the vehicle and over the rear door to see if you can see any water running on the inside. Be sure and look for water coming down from the roof area. Sometimes the mouldings and sealing material along the roof seams will leak. If this is the case, it will run down the inside wall and end up in the spare tire well. If you cannot find it this way, it may be necessary to remove the seats and ALL the inside trim so the headliner can be removed. I have seen roof leaks that are originating near the front that follow the roof reinforcement channel all the way to the rear. There are holes in the roof reinforcement chanel where you can look inside with a mirror and a flashlight (the headliner must be removed for this).

Another likely place for a leak is along the sides of the roof where the roof racks attach (if your Jeep is equipped with them).

If you find a leak in one of the seams, it is best to repair it with some (water-based) tub and tile caulk or (oil or water-based) plumber's dope. It is not recommended that you use silicone based RTV sealer because this contains acids that can cause the sheet metal to corrode and you will end-up with a worse problem in the long run.

I hope this helps you to get it figured out.

How to change the brake lights on the mercury sable


Hello,
In order to replace the light bulbs you will have to remove the entire rear light housing unit. In order to do this you must do the following:

1.Open the trunk.

2.Loosen the trunk lining in order to reach the 4 nuts that are located on the right or left side and hold the light housing in place.


3.You loosen the trunk lining fabric by removing two small, black plastic fasteners that anchor the trunk lining fabric. These either screw loose or you will need to pop off using a blunt- nosed pliers ( a flat head screwdriver works in a pinch) by first pulling the square bit out (towards the direction of the back seat,) followed by the circular components.


4.Pull the fabric loose on either the left or right side to expose the 4 nuts holding the light assembly in place.


5.Now, look for the four gold colored washer and nut assemblies surrounding the tail-light assembly. Find yourself a 7/16 socket and remove those washers and nuts. The tail-light itself should be able to pop- out, otherwise you've missed a washer- nut.


6.Ease the tail- light assembly off of it's perch on the car and hold it red- side down. This will expose the wiring and "turn- locks" for the blinker and tail- light.


7.Remove the bulbs from the assembly by turning the turn- locks in the direction (counter- clockwise) indicated by the plastic molding, and pulling upwards, off of the tail- light assembly.


8.Pull the bulb from the turn- lock with a moderate tug of the hand.


Problem solved.

Thank you for using fixya..

Ive got an alternator belt on a 1978 mercedes 450sl and the belt needs to go on the inside pully whats the easiest way. wrayturner@comcast.net


The only way to replace an alternator drive belt that is on an inside pulley is to remove the outer belts before the inner one can be fitted.
To fit inner belt, loosen the adjusting clamp and mounting bolts on the units that tension the outer belts such as the aircon compressor and power steering units and moove them to loosen the belts and then remove these belts. Once these belts are off, check them for wear and cracking of the rubber on the inside surface and if suspect it would pay to replace them as well. Loosen clamp and mounting bolts on the alternator, if not already done so, and moove alternator so that alternator belt can be fitted.
Retension alternator belt and tighten clsmping and mounting bolts Refit other belts in turn and tension and tighten clamping and mounting bolts.
Correct tension is when belt is pushed on the longest run between pulleys with a 10 Kg force. Belt should deflect a maximum of 8 mm.

The lining on the roof on teh inside of the car has come away from teh roof and I want to be able to get it put back on I have had to select that it is a Ford but the car is a commodore and that is not on...


The fabric has come loose from the backing and the backing has turned to dust. Get a good set of goggles and a breathing mask, rip the fabric away and scrape the dust off the backing with a wire brush. Vacuum up the mess and drive safely. Or you need to replace the head liner which does not cost all that much and is not all that hard to replace. You have to remove all the door moldings, and sun visors, any over head lights and the rear valise molding at the rear window. It's up to you, I have pulled many a fabric out and cleaned up the head liner, even painted a few. Instead of replacing the thing.

Can't open a 2002 Mercedes c230 kompressor sun roof


It's typically the motors or the special drive tubes that it uses. If you here a clicking noise then the sunroof became to tight and ruined the motor gears. You can actually switch the two motors, one is for the shades and needs less power then the other motor. They are identical, switch them. Nex make sure they are very tight to the 3 mounting bolts, there is a rubber washer bushing that wears out and alloys the motor to flex too much, causing the gear mis-alignment and gear grinding. This works great I do it all the time.
