Question about Cars & Trucks

1 Answer

Hi, I can't remove a toilet seat due to rusty bolts and nails holding it down underneath the toilet. I tried a bit of sandpaper, some WD-40 spray and tried loosening it with a wrench but the wings on the winged-bolt snapped off.

Sadly this is life. I've never had them come apart, they always break. New ones are inexpensive at your local hardware store. Some of them even have all the bolts as a kit.

Have you tried using a long extension? I pretty sure that is the only way to reach the bottom bolt.

SOURCE: can't remove crankshaft timing belt pulley BOLT!

You will have to brace the crankshaft somehow, either by way of the flywheel, or the pulley. The trick to getting the bolt to break is "heat". Propane will sometimes work, but it's generally not hot enough. You want to get that bolt glowing if you can, and hit it with air impact then. Be careful not to burn yourself!

I hope this helps you, and I wish you luck on your repair.

SOURCE: passenger wing mirror replacement

On the inside trim, you can remove screws that are by the door handle, arm rest, under door and side of door and then gently pull back on the panel as there will also be retaining clips attached and you don't want to break them. You'll need to lift the door panel upwards in order to get it off the window ledge. Then you'll need to manipulate the panel and disconnect the door handle linkage from the door handle and disconnect the wiring for your controls. Then you can access the bolts that secure the mirror onto the door

Rear door lock wont open

Before buying a new actuator. Spray some wd-40 down in there and play around with it a little bit. My 98 Durango was the same way. I sprayed wd-40 inside the lock and then up underneath and just played around with it for 5 minutes and it finally broke free and works fine. If that doesn't work, take the door panel off ( a job that can be easy or hard depending on the vehicle) and spray some more wd 40 in there and play around with it. If that doesn't work you might just have to replace it.

1993 Toyota Celica trunk will not open. The lock is stuck in a middle position. Can I go through the back seats to fix the problem?

Crawl into the back and remove all of the screws that hold the back plastic panel on.

the back seat is removed by pulling up the rear seat front cushion.
Then you get access to the seat back.
There are 2 12 mm bolts that hold the seat back AND the side arm rest.Lower arm rest bolts are at the bottom. 12 mm.
Tie the seat belts back.
The seat back bolts are at the bottom. 12 mm.

B-4 you try that ordeal......
Use lock eaze on the lock cylinder.
Graphite spray can.

Try pulling the trunk key back out.
maybe a slide hammer..
Put down pressure on the trunk lid,first.
Have a friend sit on it...

WD-40: last resort.

Work the key in the cylinder after you dowse the key hole with that crap/chemical.
If the key brakes off,into the trunk you go.

1955 ford f100 brake drum wont come off

If you have the wheel off and can turn the drum, if you are screwing the wrong way the drum will stop rotating.
As you have used a lubricant, use copious amounts of brake cleaner or replace the contaminated parts to avoid brake failure!

Checked fuses and jumped power to fuse block and still nothing works

Check your ground wire. Negative batt. connection on tight? Negative cable GROUND solid without corrosion? (Where its bolted to the body.)
Any secondary negative connections from main neg wire. Clean dry no rust ! If its loose or rusty, remove the conection, clean it up with a stiff wire brush, bolt it back down firmly. If its corroded you may need new fittings from an auto parts store. Spray liberally with WD 40 after fixing.

You did check the battery first right? Its not dead flat?
Hope this helps.

My front passenger seat belt doesn't work. it won't move at all. stuck with a little bit of slack. can i fix this seat belt issue myself?

You might be able to lubricate it with WD - 40 or other spray lubricant ( I prefer PB Blaster). As an alternative you can buy a replacement seat belt assembly from your local auto parts store that will bolt in place of your existing belt assembly - maybe. I have had to drill new mounting holes in vehicles in the past and the job required removal of the seat to have room for drilling. Then I used flat washers on the mounting bolt underside of car for strengthening the hold and I used blue Locktite to keep the nut on the bolt from loosening.
Hope this helps and good luck!!

Its actually a 87 dodge aries k car. My gear

I have an 87 aries wagon that it happened to. Spray lots of WD-40 on it. It is usually due to a rusty/corroded cable, and wd-40 should loosen it up. Take the cable off of the lever, and see if you can shift it out of "1st gear" if you can't or if it's tough, spray some WD-40 in/on the cable, and hold the clutch in, and shift to random gears a bunch of times. it may take a few sprayings, but if the cable isn't too far gone, you can do that. it wouldn't hurt to spray it on the lever where it pivots.

Remove rear seat 96 corsica

As with most vehicles, the bolts holding the seats in place are located under the car. Locate the mounting bolts under the chassis (it may be neccessary to use penetrating oil about 30 minutes prior to attempting to remove these bolts - WD-40 works well).

Change left rear tire

This is a somewhat common problem with many cars. Spray the center of the wheel hub with WD-40 or some similar lubricant. Corrosion can form at the hub center, making it difficult to remove the tire. Kick the outer edge of the tire to break it free.

I am having trouble removing the caliper bolts

For any hard to unscrew bolts, use WD-40 spray and let it for at least 5 mins, the more - the better. If no result, you can try to carefully hit the heads, this will loosen the thread if rusty. It is important to have a good wrench. If all fails, the bad way is cutting, as near the surface as possible, PRECISE drilling, cleaning the parts.

How do i install a car seat

Unhook any wiring harness from under the seat that is attached to the seat. bolts for the seat are accessed from underneath the vehicle. use some wd 40 on the bolts to make them easier to remove tho you may break some of the bolts. if so drill out the old ones (if you are reusing the old seat) and use ones that are the proper grade.
