Insert a screwdriver under the device and lift it up as you are rotating the screw, or put the blade under the screw head and pry it up as you turn it.

Yes it is. They will need to be drilled out. Thats the best way, some people try to put bolts on, but I dont advise it.

SOURCE: I have an externally regulated 1991 crown

Nuts and bolts often rust, especially in older vehicles. Sometimes it is easier to just cut them off with a Dremel or similar rotary tool. I hate spending 15 minutes cussing out a corroded screw when I can cut it in 5 minutes.

Volvo 240 alternator repair


When the Bosch alternator in your Volvo 240 series fails there is a high probability that it can be easily repaired.These alternators use an"externally mounted internal regulator." This small assembly which consists of a solid state 14.4 volt semiconductor and a pair of brushes regulates the output current going to the battery. The brushes will wear down, effectively disconnecting the regulator. When if fails, and it eventually will, the output voltage drops from 13.8-14.4 volts DC to slightly less that the voltage of the battery with the engine off. Remove the two screws that attach the regulator to the rear of the alternator, remove, and check the brushes. if they're worn, replace either the brushes or best is to locate a self serve parts yard and get a better used regulator. Install it and you should be ok.Time to remove, examine, and reinstall the regulator assembly should be 20 minutes or less.

Intermittent charging


Sounds as if the voltage regulator is going bad. Most are now located on or inside the alternator itself. Passing the test with the problem being intermittent makes a case for the regulator. I suggest getting a regulator, or replace the alternator with a friends if you have one whose model will fit.

1999 ford crown vic won't start. changed fuel


Maybe your problem is with the one or many injectors, if just one is bad, you will have problems. Get yourself a multimeter and set it to read in ohms and find what spec the injectors should be at. If out of spec, then you need to replace that one injector(s).

Battery voltage needle goes up and down when my 92 crown vic idles. As if car wants to shut off.. what causes this problem?


The most likely problem here would be the alternator itself. Either the brushs are wearing out or the regulator is going bad. It wouldn't hurt to check the tension on the drive belt. If it was fairly loose that could cause the problem too. Hope this hrlps.
