If the door chime won't stop, it may be due to a damaged actuator in the doorway. Try opening and then closing one door at a time to see if you can find the offender. In the door opening you will find a small switch that when pressed, will compress and register that the door is closed. When the door opens, it expands. Something may have damaged one of these or it may be sticky. Try a bit of lube like WD 40 or something with graphite to see if that helps. Loosening the actuator and checking the wiring attached to it may reveal a bad connection and/or chafed wires that may need to be taped up to eliminate unwanted grounding against the door frame.

VW 2000 Beetle 1.8 Turbo driver door lower hinge replacement, also replace the mirror switch as it broke off. And non stop door open chiming when door is closed.


The hinge is a big deal. You will have to remove the door panel and the fender. It is a pretty hefty job. While you have the door panel off you can replace the door latch for the door chime and also the mirror switch. Luckily it is all in the same door. Hope this helps.

How do I replace light bulb on the sun visor vanity mirror on 2002 legacy/ liberty subaru


I'm not sure you can. Talk to a Subaru parts guy at a dealership. What I can tell you for sure is this: I replaced the passenger side visor on a '94 Legacy Lsi that was torn off when the car was stolen and driven from WV to FL. I couldn't find a used one and the insurance company wound up paying 135 bux for an original equipment replacement. Good luck. . .

Battery keeps draining


One of the most common things is that your interior lights are staying on, check and clean the door switches and make sure they are springing back into position easily with your finger. Also check your rear door latch for the same. Another thing is, if you have lighted vanity mirrors in your visors, those switches can become gummed up as well. One last thing to check is your interior light switches, ie. dome lights, overhead lights etc.

Fuse panel diagram


All of the interior lamps are powered thru the body computer. The power source is a 10amp fuse marked CTSY LAMP. The vanity mirror is on the same circuit with the lights for the door lock and power window switches.

ok.. you either bought the lights over the vanity mirrors in the sun visors... or the lights are not working in the sun visors???? Wow man!... think you could take additional classes in the English language? ... what's this issue with 'extra clock' in between the sun visors are not working'???? Tell you what, since you're convinced you have a problem, Go to www.hmaservice.com and register( Vehicle by VIN). Afterward, you have access to shop manuals, service bulletins, wiring diagrams, etc. about your vehicle.

Door chime won't go off.


You may have pinched a wire in the window pillar, the dome lamp is part of this circuit. remove the screws you put in and see if the problem stops. it this works, then remove the window pillar inner cover and move the wire harness out of harms way.

Seat belt chimes continue after seat belts are on.


i drove for a whole year with my car chiming finally figured it was a fuse that had blown causing the chiming bell to go on. Check your fuses and youll find one that is blown replace it and you should be fine.

The flap for the vanity mirror on the sun visor has lost its tension and just hangs open-can I fix it or do I need a new part?


There are two little plastic pins that snap against a spring steel clip and these have broken off.. - for @ $180.usd you can replace the unit.. or we applied two small velcro discs ( ask at any hardware store) under the mirror and cover and that seems to work fine. They also make adhesive magnet strip that might work. A fix that we used for a few weeks was to clip the garage door opener on this visor..it held it in place nicely. Good luck
