Possibly water is trapped there and the flies are breeding there.

What larvae hatched in a closed kitchen container? There are hundreds of .75 inch long black things crawling quickly.


Fly spray or household bleach will help. Probably roaches or some thing from an unfinished meal that a fly has had a go at.

Horn blows by itself


I verify its not a stuck relay...

I disconnect connector under dash and horn stops...


I then suspect its the Horn contacts or a worn grounded wire in air bag/horn switch assembly in steering wheel.




The decorative Vinyl cover shrinks with age...presses on horn contacts against air bag.

I Disconnect Air bag connector (identified as Yellow wire and Connector) usually under dash.

WARNING: ( I Do not - I DO NoT probe the yellow harness/connector with a meter or test light. A test light WILL Detonate my air bag, and impale the bracket in a nearby object/person - me.)

I Removed screws (2) behind steering wheel - which allow air bag horn assembly to be removed.


I Disconnect Air bag connector in this location as well (identified as Yellow wire and Connector) and then;




The red (color varies) and black Horn wires will be plugged into ribbon connectors usually (2) two that feed/connect to contacts for horn function on face of air bag.

I pause here and verify horn will stop blowing when I disconnect the wires going to horn contacts. So I get horn blowing again...

Check horn: To verify this is the cause; I reconnect (whatever fuse/relay/ connector (Not the airbag connector) I disconnected so they will stop blowing) and get horn/s so they are blowing again...

Then I disconnect the ribbon connectors to verify blowing stops.

Note: The experience I had with horn on

Buick Park Ave was at night when temperature cools after hot day, the vinyl cover shrank and horn blows... pressing on horn area of steering wheel firmly would stop horn briefly - then continue.

Note: I will need a rivet tool and rivets... to reassemble.

WARNING: I Do not drill into airbag explosive container. If I do not know how to carefully drill off correct rivet heads and remove vinyl decorative cover from air bag/horn... I STOP and go to the junkyard or ebay and purchase/replace the airbag/horn assembly.

I continued by drilling out rivets (the rivets holding vinyl cover) by using a drill bit as large (or smaller) as the head of rivet and drill gently to release head from rivet body/shank.



I mark all pieces with a magic marker to verify I reassemble right side up (all metal brackets and trim plates and cover).



I Remove vinyl cover exposing horn contact pads which were sandwiched between cover and air bag container.

I used a razor blade to remove vinyl honeycomb material from area of vinyl cover - that when pressed - would activate horn/contacts.

Only a 1/16 of an inch or less needs to be removed.

(I Bend cover inside out and shave material off of area slowly. Care not to cut myself.)

I Reassemble in reverse order with rivets.

Check horn: ...function at this point... by plugging in horn connectors and assure horn contacts work properly as expected.

Floorboard wet on drivers side on my 1995 buick skylark


There are a few things you will need to check as the leak could be from windsheild or floor. the first thing is to vacuum floor next is to use a water hose and spray all over windsheild while someone is looking with light inside under the dash to see if water is coming inside, if so then window resealing is needed and window has to be removed. next is to look at floor board from under the car for rust hole, this is the way to go. let me knomw the out come. good day

I just bought a 1996 ford bronco to day and the rear window worked then i tried to open tailgate and now it wont work ? can you help.


This is a pretty common problem, Inspect the wiring in the tailgate jam area ,the wiring takes a lot of abuse ,every time the tailgate is open and closed the wiring inside the( black vinyl tube ) gets flexed back and forth and in time the wiring breaks some times if you open up the vinyl tube and inspect the wires it will appear the wires are ok but if you pull on the wire you'll find that it will actually stretch and all thats holding it together is the vinyl insulator ,also there are switches in the door latches of the rear gate that tell's if the tail gate is closed,if its not closed completely it will not allow the window to work properly hope this gets you in the right direction

1999.5 Jetta 2.0 GLS manual trans. was having a random loud buzzing/clicking noise coming from the instrument panel. The buzz/click has now turned into a loud, constant buzz.


Hi, this is a very common problem and its not only your make peugeot's have the exact same problem, its a tiny little fan that just sits behind the dash and all it does is gently circulate the air round the inside of the dash to keep everything cool and stop and heat building uo

i know its very very annoying but the only option is to take the whole dash out just to get to a fan thats about the size of a milk bottle cap and its just not worth doing, i know its annoying but you will be even more annoyed when you cant put your dash back together,

my mom has got a peugeot with the exact same noise it sounds like their is a fly trapped behind the dash well thats what my mom though anyway she kept banging the dash and spraying fly spray everywhere then when i got in the car she asked me if i could hear the fly and asked how long they live for cuz its been their for ages it was only when i told her it was a little fan she realised that maybe its not a trapped fly.

its up to you rip the dash out and bust the fan but its a big job just to stop a tiny little fan i know its very annoying but their is no easy fix sorry.

let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok

plz rate this solution as i have a whole page of unrated posts, thanks

How do I replace the back window?


Remove the black vinyl trim from the edge of the glass. Remove broken glass & urethane adhesive from the metal pinchweld leaving a thin layer (approx 1/16") of urethane for new new urethane to adhere to. Vacuum broken glass. Prime nicks to the metal to protect from rusting (also insuring a good surface to bond to). Attach vinyl reveal molding to glass (unless it's a "T" shaped push in type - it would install after the glass is set). Clean and prime the replacement glass. Apply new urethane adhesive. Set glass in place.Slide the metal joint cover in place on the molding (at bottom in the center). Clean outer surface of glass. Allow for safe drive away as noted by urethane manufacturer.

No, just a phillips and a large flat driver or pry tool. Remove plug from upper rear side of door. Pry off the triangular cover that is above the panel and covers the backside of the mirror mount. Then lift the lower edges of the panel to pop out or pry out the nylon plugs that anchor the panel to the door. Do this carefully. Next unscrew the handle cover. You'll see the lever handle is attached to the latch rod with a nylon sleeve over the hook on the rod This is flipped around to release it. When you peek in it will be self-evident. I found this the hardest piece to get back on. Do this carefully to not lose or break the little nylon sleeve.New ones can be purchased if you do. Next you need to find the screws that secure the panel. The first is totally visible. The next is found when you pop off the soft vinyl arm rest starting from the back. The next and last is a vinyl covered screw visible in the upper right of panel. Think that's it. Then pop out the electronic controls for windows. Once removed there is a waterproof plastic attached to door with black sticky caulking. Peel this off carefully and you can reseal it later. Of course you need to unplug wiring, and also remove door handles and screws as you go. I think I got all the details for you.
