SOURCE: Fuel tank door hinge

Found on-line at other sites.

[Removing/Repairing Gas Filler Door Hinge: Tip from Bill Peyton]   The gas door hinge will break if pushed forward.  This is usually done by moving around the car with the door open, or by curious children.  The repair job can be done completely from the exterior. 
The black plastic hinge is held in place by four plastic rods.  When pushed through the body of the car, they expand four rubber sleeves located on the interior, thereby holding the whole thing in place. 
Remove as follows: 
Open the door, and using a small punch, push the four plastic rods through to the interior of the car.  The door will now come out.  Note the position of the spring and the hinge.  Remove the spring from the old hinge, and either cut or pry our the old hinge.  This is a black plastic piece. 
The ends of the new hinge are tapered to make it easier to insert into the gas door.  Clip the spring back into place. 
Now for the hard part.  You will see on the new hinge four plastic rods.  These are held onto the hinge by four small connections, all molded into a single piece.  On the other side of the hinge are four plastic “flowers” split into four pieces.  You will need to push the plastic rods through the “flowers”, once the “flowers” are pushed through to the interior of the car.   Since the rods are not free floating, they tend to break off and fly away unless you hit them squarely.  If this happens, put a little taper in the ends, place them back in the hold, and push them through.  A punch and a hammer will be essential.  Alternatively, you can break the rods off while the piece is off the car, insert them manually, and drive them in again with the punch.

SOURCE: Handbrake locked on rear wheel of volvo 440

Turn thr "Star wheel" between the brake pads with a screwdriver. Count the number of notches. Once you have the brakes freed up, reassemble and adjust using the same number of nutches in the opposite direction. You most likely have a cable stuck in locked position. If possible, DRY LUBE it. If not, Install a new cable or sleeve.

Change fuel filter

MsBaller, i did request further info regarding the model vehicle in question, but to give a general answer-

fuel filters on modern cars are generally within the fuel tank, in the fuel sensor assembly at the top of the tank. on most cars, these are accessed by removing the rear seat and access panel, beneath. on pick-ups, the bed may need lifting, or the tank, dropped.

with crossover's or lower-sitting suv.s, the tank may be accessible from under the rear seats, but on a large suv, set on a truck frame, it could be like the crossovers, or like the pick-ups, where the tank must be dropped to access the top.

on antique or very low budget cars, there may be an external filter in the fuel line, either very close to the tank, or, rarely, in the engine compartment.

and on some cars, mostly during the 80's, the fuel pump could be above one of your rear wheel wells, but the filter would still likely be in the fuel level sensor assembly, at the very top of the fuel tank.

Where is the fuel pressure sensor located on a 2002 GMC Sierra 1500 4X4?

The fuel tank pressure sensor on a 1999 GMC Sierra is located on the top of the fuel tank on the fuel pump itself. Most say that you need to drop the fuel tank to replace it but if you have access to a lift you can replace it without removing the fuel tank. By removing the rear U joint straps and moving the driveshaft to the side you can see and access the sensor for replacement. Chock wheels to prevent movement of the vehicle after driveshaft is disconnected.

Where is the fuel level sensor located on a 2005 chevey malibu??

the sensor is on the gas tank-if you remove the rear bench seat, there is an access plate to get to the top of the tank. Located under that is the fuel pump/fuel sensor level sensor. Remove the o-ring and lift the assembly out. On a scale of 1 to 10 (10 being the most difficult) it is a 3 or 4, tops.

I need to know how to drop the fuel tank so i can change my fuel pump please

You don't need to drop the fuel tank in a 1995 940. There is an access panel in the trunk. Under the trunk liner there is a panel to the left of the backseat access. Unscrew the 4 screws there and you should see a screw-top cover. Remove it and you will have access to the fuel pump and floater.

Sorry not sure what you are trying to do exactly. Change the fuel pump in the fuel tank? I'm posting because I recently had to do my Jaguar, maybe familiar.

I had to lower the entire rear suspension, wheels, differential and trailing arms. This allowed me to disconnect fuel lines going into middle bottom of fuel tank. Then I could continue removing fuel tank thru trunk including the filler neck. Then I could finally get to top of fuel tank and remove clips to remove fuel pump in tank. Funny how the instructions want you to empty the tank before you start. I had to do it with about 1/2 tank, how was I supposed to empty 10 gallons of fuel?
Good luck!

2002 volvo s80 has leak at top of gas tank. can hear hissing sound. does the exhaust system need to be saw off to repair?

This should be repairable from the top.
Pull out the rear seat cushion and remove the two black round access covers to access the fuel pump covers. The seals for these covers tend to leak and if they are leaking, you will see it when the covers are off.
