SOURCE: how to replace head gasket
Hi, replacing a head gasket is not a DIY job, unless the person has plenty of experience, knowledge, and the proper tools. The fact that a person would even ask, "How to replace a head gasket", would indicate to some that they should not trying to do that repair.
To replace a head gasket you must remove the intake manifold, exhaust manifold, valve train, and then the head. This is very involved and requires disconnecting lots of sensors and the ignition system. The head must then be checked to see if it is warped, or cracked, and repaired if necessary. You must then know how to put all this back together and torque all the bolts in the proper sequence. This takes training and skill which the average shade tree mechanic does not have.
Pick up a Haynes or Chilton manual. Either one should give you detailed directions with illustrations.
Or let a mechanic do it...

SOURCE: i have a vy commodore that ive replaced the front struts in and new link pins but its making a clunking noise and keeps bending the link pins..a mechanic carried out the work...the struts i brought r
Commodore sounds like it might be Australian?? If it was my car I would be looking for worn out bushings that are allowing too much movement. Control or A arm bushings for a start, possibly new bushing kits for the struts. It could also be possible that mounting holes have been enlarged from use and those would make the problem more obvious. Any chance you may have bent the control arms while driving? Since you had a mechanic do the work it should be safe to assume that ball joints would be good but it wouldn't hurt to check them as well. The springs could be weak enough to allow extra travel or maybe you got the wrong struts. Hope this helps.

Did they break the larger window? or the smaller one?
The larger one is the easy one, remove the door panel, adjust the window mechanism until you can see the bolts on the bottom window track, undo these bolts and remove the old track, To fit the new window it's simply a matter of removing the side window guide rail and sliding the window in on an angle and wiggle it around until you get it inside the door, the seat it in the rail and replace the guide rail. Then bolt the window to the mechanism and re-assemble the door panel.
If it's the smaller one you need to remove the larger window first then remove the frame between the smaller and larger piece of glass, You can then replace the glass.
I would suggest calling around and you may get a good price for an expert to replace it as it is a pain to do.
