How do I get rear gate to close if the latch clasp is rotated out of correct position?

You probably need to pull the manual release and physically move the latch back into its unmatched position. The latch hook will rotate open so that it can receive the fixed bar on the body.

How to change air filter 2003 mini

After opening the hood, locate the air filter box, which is just to the rear right corner of the engine. It is connected to the engine via a thick plastic tube.

Remove the tube clamp that joins the plastic tube to the air filter box. The tube clamp is a metal ring with a simple clasp on it. To release the clasp, slide the tip of a flat-head screwdriver in the opening and twist it to either side. The clamp will loosen, allowing you to pull away the tube from the air filter box about an inch or so.

Remove the two metal screws on the right side of the air filter box. They're located along the seam where the lid meets the bottom of the box.

Slide the lid to the left about a half inch; it won't go much farther than that. When it's as far to the left as possible, lift it off.

Pull the old filter out of the box. Give it a close look if you'd like, and if it doesn't appear particularly dirty, put it back in. Otherwise, discard it.

Put in the new, clean filter in the old one's place.

Put the lid back down so it's just to the left side of the bottom of the air filter box, then slide it to the right until it snaps into place.

Replace both screws on the right side.

Slide the plastic tube back onto the air filter box and squeeze the sides of the tube clamp together to lock it on.

My hood release wire is broken on my 92 chevy lumina van and I was wondering if there was some way to get it open

If you can get under the van and using a flash light look up to the bottom side of the hood. You will see a lever hooked into a rectangular loop. take a pair of plyers and pull on the wire to open or take a piece of round metal and have someone puch down on hood and you can push the hook for the hood

Sunroof cable broke how to close it

remove overhead console, then remove the metal bracket, then you'll have access to the sunroof motor bolts. Remove the motor and you'll probably see that the cable is damaged. Use a pair of wire cutters and cut it out of the way and then feed the cable back into the groove/slot( you'll have to move the sunroof by hand while doing this). Then put the motor back in and turn the key on to opperate the sunroof closed. That should hold you over untill a replacement part is found. Very easy to do with a phillips and a 10mm socket & wratchet.

Door will not close the clasp will not open

With the door open and the door unlocked, put a screw driver in the latch on the door. Pull it up and depress the door open handle at the same time. the door latch will return to the open position. Release the door handle button and close the door.

If that is unclear, imagine the llatch to look like a hook that grabs the round metal post mounted on the car door post. the hook is down as if it thinks it is closed so it blocks itself. By getting that 'latch hook to go back up it will allow you to close the door thus resting itself to operate normally again.

Hope that helps.

Hope that helps.

My 1995 jaguar xj6 left side of my hood wont open:

O don't know if you can get through the grill, but if you can, you are still going to have the hood stick down by the catch at the front so it won't get you very far. Treating this as a 2 man job may be more successful. One of you needs to be pressing down on the hood directly above the catch (To relieve the pressure on the catch) while the other pumps and jiggles the lever in the car. This may release it. Alternatively (and I don't know about this car in particular, but it will work on some) If you lie under the car, you may be able to see the control cable tor the release, If you can, and you can hook it and pull on it while someone is doing the jiggle and sitting suggested above, the slight stretch of the outer cable may will give you that extra bit of movement on the inner to get it freed off.

Bonnet wont open on reault laguna

There are two release catches about 15" to the right and left of the centre safety catch. Roughly at each end of the top of the radiator.

The bonnet release cable goes first to the right hand one then there is a wire from that to the left, in a daisy chain way. They are typically French, cables fit into plastic levers ( a bit like bike brakes) not metal which break easily. replacements are not cheap. You need to be able to pull the cable to both catches to get the bonnet up. I managed to do this from underneath. In my case the, left hand one was broken and right hand one was working, but the getting it open broke the bit that that pulls the left. Managed to away with buying just one new catch as they are identical, swopping the right partly broken one over to the left side.
