Go to the auto store, see shelf on bumper skins, refurb.
or buy a new skin. at the dealer, no year, stated, so..............
if its painted, use (same shelf) polishing compound, then wax it.
my car has rhino lining paint on all bumbers,
easy fix or none, battle scars... are cool'
posting a photo of the bumper and damage, wins big in the help world.

Call this number or go to homelink web site for further help

www.homelink.com

1. Position vehicle within 10 feet of garage door- engine off and battery on.

2. Press/hold 2 outside buttons of Homelink transceiver until red indicator starts flashing rapidly, then release button. This should take about 20 seconds. This erases any previously learned codes.

3. Press/hold remote control and press/hold button of Homelink transceiver simultaneously. Slowly move remote control from 5" away to 1" away from Homelink transceiver. Release both buttons after red indicator starts blinking rapidly. This should take about 5 seconds. I discovered that the Homelink in my TL is a bit faulty because it took much longer to accomplish this than when programming the Homelink in my MDX. My TL's Homelink may "unlearn" it's code in the future and the needed proximity of the TL to the garage door may be much closer than desired until I get the Homelink fixed.

4. Press training button on garage door opener unit until the indicator lights illuminates- this should be immediate.

5. Within 30 seconds press/hold the Homelink button for 2-3 seconds until the red indicator starts flashing rapidly. Repeat a second time. It should now be programmed. Check it by pressing the programmed button on the Homelink receiver.

6. When programming more than 1 garage door opener unit, disconnect power from unit before programming more units. By not doing this the programmed unit could conflict with the unprogrammed units commands.

Problems:

1. The Battery in the garage door remote may be too weak to program Homelink. However, the battery may be strong enough to operate the garage door. One of my remote controls had a weak battery- my system was installed today, fresh out of the box. I had to use the second remote control for the programming of Homelink on my 2 vehicles.

My manual drivers window gets stuck half why?


It`s off its track. Window regulators are mostly if not all plastic. You would have to get the door panel off to see what`s up.The plastic can get very brittle from heat.

How do adjust the headlights


Hi there,

The headlight assembly is well secured, that's for sure. The bumper cover will need to be removed to gain access. To start, there are plastic trim fasteners that expand when the plastic screw is driven into them. There are three in each fender-well that attach in the forward portion securing the bumper cover.

Remove these by backing out the screw and pulling out the stud. If the screws do not come out, you can use a flat prying tool of sorts to pull them through the layers. There are two tricky ones that are between the bumper cover and the fender. The easiest way to get them out is to slip a flat prying tool between the fender and the bumper.

Now for the bottom of the bumper cover. There are two more of the plastic fasteners under the lower portion of the grill of the bumper cover that will also need removal. Next are a series of 10mm bolts that will need to be removed from the under side of the bumper. There should be about nine of them to be removed. Now for the top of the cover, there are two 10 mm bolts to be removed. The bumper cover should be ready for removal. I'd suggest you have someone to aid you so that the cover does not fall and get scuffed.

Slide the cover FWD from each side, there are receptors that they fit into. If you have fog lights and an air temp gauge, they will need to be unplugged after the cover is pulled away. Now you have access to the light assembly. On the headlight assembly there is a bolt and a nut on the top that get removed, a bolt on the side of the fender and a bolt almost directly below the main bean portion (recessed a little). To put it all back together is relatively simple now that you know the procedure.

Hope this helps...

How to re-paint scaped and scuffed car bumpers and fenders


In my experience, it's good to get paint that is matched to the original manufacturer's color from a place like NAPA auto parts.

Ask about the 'flex' agent as well, as many bumpers are made of plastic which will need it for a satisfactory result.

Then, get an air brush or detail paint gun and an air compressor (small) that can power it.

Sand the affected area with coarse down to fine sandpaper until relatively smooth.

Spray grey or red primer on the masked off area.

Fill the canister with paint and spray the scuffed and scraped bumpers or fenders.

You can paint small areas outside or in a large dust free garage, or preferably in a paint booth that has down draft ventilation.

Wear proper apparel for painting when you do this.

New paint can fill many cracks on several coats.

I hit the front bumper bottom light of my 2005 volkswagen beetle. The bulb is fine but the plastic is broken where can i go fix it.


Any independent VW repair shop for lower repair cost compared to a dealer. They will order the part for you and install it. If painting is involved, you'll need to bring it to a body shop so the can color match the pait to the part, this doesn't necessarily be a specific VW auto-body shop but it might speed things up since they have more resources for part hunting.

I ran my 2006 toyota corolla into the garage door! It was at a very low speed so thankfully it only did a little damage. I need to take the right side of the front bumper off and so a few minor repairs,...


I dont own a toyota so i couldnt tell you for sure..but i do know one thing for sure is that you must be careful that you disable the air bag sensors which are usually near the front bumper on most cars before you work on the bumper so that you dont set them off by accident.

Removing headlight assembly


I actually did this just last night. It is somewhat complicated to explain, yet easy to do. The headlight assembly is well secured, that's for sure. I failed to take pictures, so I will do my best to put it all in words. The bumper cover will need to be removed to gain access. To start there are plastic trim fasteners that expand when the plastic screw is driven into them (Like what you would use in sheetrock). There are 3ea in each fender-well that attach in the forward portion securing the bumper cover. Remove these by backing out the screw and pulling out the stud. If the screws do not come out, you can use a flat prying tool of sorts to pull them thru the layers. There are 2ea tricky ones that are between the bumper cover and the fender. The easiest way to get them out is to slip a flat prying tool between the fender and the bumper. Now for the bottom of the bumper cover. There are 2ea more of the plastic fasteners under the lower portion of the grill of the bumper cover that will also need removal. Next are a series of 10MM bolts that will need to be removed from the under side of the bumper. If I recall correctly there are 9ea of them to be removed. Now for the top of the cover, there are 2ea 10 MM bolts to be removed. The bumper cover should be ready for removal. It is best to have some one aid so that the cover does not fall and get scuffed. Slide the cover FWD from each side, there are receptors that they fit into. If you have fog lights and an air temp gauge, they will need to be unplugged after the cover is pulled away. Now you have access to the light assembly. On the headlight assembly there is a bolt and a nut on the top that get removed, a bolt on the side of the fender and a bolt almost directly below the main bean portion (recessed a little). To put it all back together is relatively simple now that you know what makes it tick. Hope that this helps!

If you haven't already solved this, Start at the rear corner light. Next to the liftgate there are two plastic covers to open with a flat screwdriver. Remove the two phillips screws and pull light straight back firmly to remove the light. Let it hang. Remove the two phillips screws holding the metal track cover behind the light on the side of the van. Open the door, and remove one track cover screw with a 10 mm socket at front of cover looking back in door jam. Close door and slide track back about an inch and then pull straight out from the side of the van revealing slider track. Hope this helped

Toyota Sienna bumper dent


These vans have a styrofoam bumper wrapped in semi-rigid plastic. When you dented the bumper you probably dented the styrofoam as well, so depending on how deep the dent is you may not be able to bring it back to normal.

The surest way to fix the dent would be to remove the bumper by unbolting it, then taking out the styrofoam and pushing out the dent.

2000 Pontiac Sunfire GT needs new rear bumper cover


Depends on whether it is broken cracked or just scuffed. Repaint of the scuffed cover between $200 and $300. If cracked or broken a good used bumper is about $150 buy you usually have to paint and install. The total cost could add up to $500.00
If you are lucky to find a good one you do not need to paint in your color it is about 1 hour labor to replace.
