Hoods are designed to be part of the crash protocol and to absorb part of the crash force to lessen the impact on the passenger. OEM hoods are the only replacement hoods that fit that requirement. How ever if you want an aftermarket hood you will need a certificate of the crash ability of the item before you could fit it and that would make it dearer than an OEM hood. Talk to speed shops and body modifiers to see if they can tell you where to get more information as to who could fill your order.

SOURCE: hood struts have failed on 04 Jeep Grand Cherokee

Despite what the auto manufacturers would have you believe, OEM parts are no better than aftermarket parts, and aftermarket are a good bit cheaper. If the struts are like the ones that were on the hood of my 1993 Eagle Vision or on my 1996 Dodge Intrepid (both traded long ago), or on the tailgate of my 2004 PT Cruiser (all Dodge/Chrysler/Jeep/Eagle products) they are a ball and socket configuration. They pop off the ball using an old screwdriver, and pop back on using slip joint pliers. If you find this helpful, please remember to rate it.

SOURCE: 2006 Tahoe Rear Hatch lock actuator

A wrecking yard is your best bet. The odds of you getting one that is bad are astronomical. Are you sure your remote has fresh battery's? Also check your fuse going to that devise before buying another one. The second choice on where to find one is eBay. Of course they are usually higher then a wrecking yard. They get a lot of there parts for sale by going to the salvage yard them selves. I hope this helps and Good Luck, The Raz

SOURCE: I have a 2006 Nissan Altima and my air conditioner

I would check the number 33 fuse (see diagram below). It could also be the relay for the compressor as well. Also there is a refridgerant pressure sensor and if that is faulty it will give the wrong readings to the computer which in turn will not give the correct voltage to the relay which would make it to where the relay would engage the compressor clutch. Below are some pictures of wiring diagrams as well as locations of the relay and the sensor. If you are in need of any other information that you think may help you or you need bigger pictures as I can only post up to a certain size here, feel free to email me at and I will be happy to answer what I can.

Remove a hood from a 2006 nissan altima

absolutely not. first thing, carefully remove the washer hoses. there are four bolts on the hinges. just remove front two completely then slowly remove rear two while someone else holds the other side of hood. the hood itself is relatively light.when reinstalling, keep the hood bolts slightly loose and bring down the hood slowly, not letting it close. when you can position the hood straight, tighten a bolt on either side then close the hood. if it closes and opens while being evenly gapped on both sides tighten all four bolts. then replace the washer hose and done.

Need to replace serpentine belt on 2006 Nissan Altima. what are steps?

the first thing to do it locate the under hood diagram that shows the belt route. if there isn't one than be sure to make note or make your own diagram of the belt position and how it "snakes" around the pulleys and in what order. the next thing you need to do is locate the tension pulley. once you know which pulley is the tensioner you place a wrench and socket on the bolt in the center of that pulley. and turn it counter clockwise as you do you should notice the belt getting some slack as this happens slip the belt off the most accessible pulley. after you get the belt off the pulley be careful not to pinch your wrench on anything.once the tensioner has been released pull the belt out from around the other pulleys and replace with the new on pulling it around all but the most accessible pulley at which point you can reapply tension to the tension pulley and pull the belt around the last pulley before releasing and putting full tension on the belt take a good look and be sure that the belt is on all of the pulleys correctly then let off and voila thats that hope this helps
