Can you fix old Precor Elliptical machines? Please help!!

I have a Precor EFX544 and hastily tried to pull pieces apart without removing the cover. I broke part #37012-101. It holds the ribbon cable in place. It's a tiny plastic piece that basically renders my machine useless if broken :( Do you have this part? Might you be able to help? It's discontinued unfortunately, so Precor and Sportsmith don't carry it anymore. I called Precor, and they can't help me. I can provide images of the part if that will help. Thank you for any help you might provide!

No, you just remove the radiator grill and the side marker light and the headlight housing bolts and it comes out. Not a real hard job and is Real straight forward. Good luck and have a good day.

SOURCE: 2000 dodge intrepid driver door latch broken

We purchased a door latch to replace ours from Dodge. It came with instructions as follows:

Instruction Sheet

Front Door Handle/Bezel Replacement for LH

1. Remove the front door trim panel using the procedures outlined in Section 23 of the appropriate service manual.

2. Place door trim panel on a clean work surface. Drill the mounting bosses' heat stakes, which attach the existing door handle/bezel to the panel, with a 21/64-drill bit. Take extra care to only drill in the center of each heat stake.

3. Remove existing handle/bezel from trim panel.

4. Clean the back of the trim panel of plastic fillings.

5. Seat the new handle/bezel into location.

6. Place the push nuts onto the handle/bezel bosses.

7. Use a 10 mm socket to install the push nuts all the way down on the mounting bosses to secure the handle/bezel onto the door trim panel. Using a wiggling side-to-side motion may be helpful.

8. Install the lock switch from the original handle/bezel to the new door handle/bezel.

9. Reinstall the door trim panel using the procedures outlined in Section 23 of the appropriate service manual.

Hope this helps.

SOURCE: Saturn SL1 Shifter to Shiftstick

I had the same problem over a year and a half ago. I went to the closest Saturn dealership to get the replacement plastic piece. Turned out that the ENTIRE shift cable assembly was the smallest part that could be purchased to repair this. The cable assembly was over $200 at that time. I opted to forgo the ridiculous expense for this tiny little plastic part. True story: with a little heavy safety wire and a large washer I jury rigged the washer to hold the end of the shift cable in the fitting at the bottom of the shift stick. The washer acts as a keeper and the wire, wrapped in a basket around the back side keeps everything together. It still shifts reliably, a little looser than when it was new, but I saved $200 in parts (99% of which weren't broken) and probably a couple of hours of labor at least. One end of the cable assembly has to be attached to the transmission by the way and is not easily accessible. Sounds hokey but it really worked, still works!

Need to pull the ignition relay switch does it pull straight up without any hidden locking devices


Hello, Most of the modern Ignition switches are 2 piece with the lock core being removable. The Ignition switch has a spring loaded pin used to release the core. The plastic steering column covers have an access hole underneath the Ignition switch and you can use a large nail or drill bit to press and release the core.

Plan on disconnecting and reconnecting 1 battery cable so you can position the core in either the ACC or RUN position for removal. Some Ignition switches have adjustments to align the safety Interlock controls. You need to scribe a mark on the shift column frame before removing the old one so you can reposition the new switch in the same spot.

Some installations require jockeying around the tilt wheel to get clearance for the plastic cover to drop. I hope you find my solution very helpful.

Take that plastic V8 siver cover off and throw it away. Unplug the wire connection that looks like the piece you purchased. Remove the 12mm bolt that is holding the old one in place. It is pushed onto the sparkplug below. Pull out the old one. Push in the new one. reinstall the 12mm bolt. plug in wire connection. I believe the #2 can be reached without removing the plastic air intake.

Hope helps (remember to rate and comment this).

Gallardo door is locked key battery went dead. How do I get cover off of key entry on door?


Oops wrong spot.
For those that cant afford to give their old lambo away when the keyfob dies... Look at the front of the key, theres a little indentation. Use a small flat head screwdriver to pry the two halves apart.

It should pull apart like this:

You will be working with the part without the key blade. Stick your two thumbs in the channel the key blade folds into and pull the lower half apart.

Replace the battery and reassemble. The car will now need to relearn the key. Remove the plastic key hole cover by lifting the door handle slightly and pulling upwards. Once in the car, stick the key into the ignition and turn the car to on without starting it. Press the unlock button on the key fob. You should be good to go.

Removing stock radio


The interior of the vehicle is like a model. It will come apart piece by piece but you have to be very careful when removing interior panel covers. Most just have clips so they can be installed or removed without screws. The stereo should have screws and 90 percent need a socket instead of a screw driver

There is a removal tool to release plastic locking tabs at back near fire wall, I had the same problem with my 01 silverado I used a 4" piece of hacksaw blade held with vice grips and cut aluminum cover and pried it apart to release, be careful not to cut heater core tube.

I need to change the lock in my drivers side door


first with the L/F window lowered, remove the door trim. Before disconnecting window switch, raise the window all the way up . Now, look inside the door to where the lock cylinder is. You need to unclip the attached linkage to the lock cylinder. Remove "C" clip, ( careful you don't damage outer door panel ) securing cylinder to door and remove lock.

2005 Mustang Automatic Shifter


The solution is that you must purchase the complete shift housing because it is all one piece and you can't just replace part of it.The dealer told me this is about $250.00 U.S. and it can be replaced by an intermediate skilled tinkerer. For right now I just live with the inconvenience as I can pretty much guess what gear Im in.
