You can do this at home, but you will need to remove the transmission to gain access to the rear main seal. The seals in the newer engines are a one piece seal, and the only way to replace them is to remove the tranny and the flywheel or flex plate to gain access to the retaining cover to the seal. A lot of work. But, if you can do it yourself you will save yourself lots of money. Labor to perform this repair will be high as it requires more time to assemble and disassemble than to actually replace the seal itself.

Drivers side window comes up about 1/2 way and then drags and acts like it will not finish coming up the rest of the way. Tuffy Repair Shop already replaced the motor and regulator. That didn't work and...

Here is what I would have done in the first place. Get a new regulator and take it to an auto glass shop. Those guys have the tools, the fasteners, and the know how to take the door apart and put it back together right the first time. A muffler shop, especially a chain, is no place to have that done.
So now take it to a local glass shop and have them do it right and file a small claim suit against Tuffy.

How can I check the alternator for proper voltage to the battery?

Attach a digital volt ohms meter to the battery with the engine running. You should see slightly more than 14 volts with the engine running and all loads off. Probably better though to have it professionally checked at a reputable garage, as we can duplcate loads, and what not. I do this free of charge at my shop, however, there may be a minimal charge. I would suggest though, to have this done at a garage, where they are in the business of fixing cars, and not at a parts store, where they are in the business of selling parts.

How do I replace the front wheel bearings on my jetta

Give this to the professionals with the experience and specialist pressing tools at your local garage to take care of. Changing wheel bearings is a very tough DIY job. I have done it several times in the past and now just take such jobs to the garage and do not regret paying for the service. There are many other simple tasks on a car for you save money on but with major jobs like wheel bearings it is time to bite the bullet. Shop around a few garages to get a feeling for the price. The parts are not expensive for the golf it will be the labour that costs, get a break down in your estimates.

How do replace a muffler that has been welded by the factory on a 2002 dodge grand caravan. I know you need to cut as close to the muffler as you can, but you still need to remove the piece of the muffler...

I presume you are not a welder and do not have welding equipment in your garage. You likely do not have a 'die grinder' type cut off tool to do the cutting for you. My guess is you will eventually get this off (and with the close quarters) but then what?

I think you should seek professional help at the muffler shop, my friend.

Last 14 months - 4 new batteries & new alternator fitted. Car still not starting and had to be returned to garage! Any ideas!

You need to have your electrical system checked for excessive draw. If the shop that worked on it has not done so, bring it to another shop...This is a routine procedure which definitely should have been done at least after the second battery! I can't offer a solution or "quick fix" because without doing that procedure I'd only be guessing!!!

Trac light and Check engine light came on how to FIX?

Here's the best way I know to fix this problem (as you said:) without paying. Make friends with someone who works at a professional garage. Get them to scan the computer and gather the codes. Or you could marry into the family of someone that works in the industry. You need to see which code was saved in the computer ( and there are MANY possibilities) before you can have any idea what to do next. Try to look for a coupon in the mailers that come to your home or in the local papers. Many shops will offer a special price for scanning your car's PCM (comp.) so they can get you in the door and make you a customer. You should be able to get this done for 40 to 60 bucks depending on where you live. It takes a few minutes, but some shops charge a full Labor Hour for the service. It's a Lexus, not a VW Beetle, so the price of ownership includes maintenance, you dig?

Car Oil Leak

bmw has a problem in that the exhaust manifold bolts are through to the rocker cover oil reservoir and the stud threads allow oil past the threads , past the washer and onto the hot manifold
the fix is to remove the studs and use a thread sealer in the threads to seal off the threads
use a quality thread sealer ( suggest loctite red gasket sealer as it is heat resistant)
there is nothing wrong other than a lack of bmw knowledge
discuss it with the bmw shop to see what they say
