Thule 757 - can't slide mounts to correct location

Trying to fit new Wing Bars with 757 mountings. I still need to get the overhangs equal. The 757 mounts now seem to be "locked" onto the Wing Bar & no longer slide for freely for making an adjustment, even when removed from the roof rails. How can the 757 mount be removed and relocated?

SOURCE: Trying to re-mount the rear view mirror on a 97 Gmc Jimmy.

Try looking underneath the arm that runs from the mounting bracket to the mirror itself. You would be looking for a small allen or torx slotted screw. It will probably be metric if its an allen screw. I don't have anything that new so there is a possibility that it is covered with a piece of plastic molding which you should be able to pop off with a little patience and fiddling. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: How do I mount my Thule Adventurer to my new 2013 Outback?

Have to fabricate another frame to adapt the two.

I would say stainless steel or if you use aluminum
then have it anadized to prevent corrosion

I you don't weld or want to spend any money-- your done.

My weber carburator wont fit on the four mounting studs. The 4 holes don't match up with the new carburator i purchesed.

Two possibilities: Either you have the wrong unit for your engine, or, you need to buy or make either an adapter plate, or drill and tap new stud holes to mount it (use gasket as a template and make sure the base seals properly with no passages overhanging the manifold mount surface....make sure no metal is allowed to enter the manifold while drilling...tape over it to seal it off)

I am trying to change a headlight. I can't can not

The headlight assembly (1993 Grand Caravan) is held in place with three plastic "wing nuts" that rotate on the ball-end (front end) of the adjusting screws. One "adjusting screw" (the one on the bottom, inboard side) is not for adjusting, just for mounting. The other two adjusting screws take a torx T15 in the front end of the screw.
Removing the headlight assembly is somewhat of a trick - it seems like it takes a special tool to reach the "wing nut" and turm it 1/4 turn (90 degrees) CLOCKWISE (so the "wings" are vertical). When all three of these mounting "wing nuts" have the wings vertical, the headlight assembly just pulls forward and off these mounting nuts. Place the new assembly back over the "nuts", turn the 3 "wing nuts" another quarter turn, and the new unit is mounted. Probably not even a need to re-adjust the headlights, but you should check.
The PROBLEM, is that it appears to take a special tool to reach and turn these wing nuts without breaking them (yes, the old ones get brittle). I tried a socket (did not work), and then long needle-nose pliers (broke one wing nut), then a 1/2" open-end wrench (which at least worked). However, pushing the new assembly back over the wing nuts, I broke another wing nut. So, I broke 2 of the 6, and one was broken when I started.
Now I need to find replacements for these "wing nuts" ... any ideas where to get them?
Of course I can use some washers, some nuts to fit the fine-threaded adjustment screw, and some sort of bushing (maybe cut a short piece of rubber tubing to fit over the adjustment screw). Place double nuts (second nut to lock the first in place) and a washer, then the bushing onto the adjusting screw, then the headlamp assembly onto the bushing, then add another washer, and two more nuts (not too tight) to lock it onto the adjusting screw (which must still be free to rotate). Repeat for each of the 6 mounting points. I have not tried this yet, but ... it should work.

Fabricate a tool to turn the "wing nuts" using a piece of 3/8 inch ID tubing which you file or cut 1/8 inch by 1/8 inch notches on each side of a diameter line.

Replace fuel filter

  1. Relieve the fuel system pressure. For details regarding this procedure, please refer to Section 5 of this manual.
  2. If not done already, disconnect the negative battery cable.
  3. Raise and safely support the vehicle.
  4. Clean both fuel feed pipe connections and the surrounding areas at the in-line fuel filter with a clean rag to avoid possible contamination of the fuel system.
  5. Using a backup wrench, remove the fuel line fittings from the fuel filter.
  6. Either separate the quick-connect fittings or remove the fuel filter mounting screws, then slide the fuel filter out of the mounting bracket.
  7. Discard the fuel line O-rings and replace with new ones during installation.
To install:
  1. Install new O-rings to the fuel line fittings.
  2. Connect the fuel lines to the fuel filter.
  3. Position the filter in the mounting bracket, in the same position it was during removal. Using a backup wrench, tighten the fuel lines to 16 ft. lbs. (22 Nm).
  4. Install the fuel filter mounting screws.
  5. Carefully lower the vehicle. Install or tighten the fuel filler cap.
  6. Connect the negative battery cable.
  7. Start the engine and check for leaks.
Location of the fuel filter

Unfasten the retaining bracket can make removal of the fuel filter easier

Either use a clean rag or compressed air to clean the surrounding areas of the filter

Use a backup wrench to disconnect the fuel line fittings from the filter

Disengage the quick-connect fittings, then remove the filter from the vehicle

In-line fuel filter mounting and related components

It sits in front of the fuel tank.
