SOURCE: vauxhall vivaro wont start cold

Sounds like a faulty cold start assistor. On top of the engine you will find an aluminium housing with four things that look like glow plugs screwed into it. These 'glow plugs' are only available complete with the housing fron Vauxhall. Approx £70 +
Airbag light is probably a fault with the seatbelt pretensioner.
Check the wiring under the seats for damage or perhaps the plugs have pulled apart.

Jack placement for rear tire change? This seems the most sensible place, but it isn't lifting enough.

Looks like that would be OK. Can you lower it again and put a block of wood under the jack? Those jacks also work on the axle if it is rear wheel drive. Or maybe there is room to put the jack under the spring support right beside the wheel? I have been in a similar pinch before, where it would not raise enough. I used one jack to raise as far as it could, then used another jack in a second location to raise the wheel higher. There is always a way. First try a block under that jack.

Replace brake pads on rear of car

  • First, you have to get a ratchet set. You may also need some everyday tools that you should have lying around the house. You also need a trolley jack and a car stand to go under your car to stop it from falling off of the jack.
  • After you have gathered the supplies, loosen the bolts to the rear left wheel with a 17mm ratchet. Do not fully remove the bolts, but loosen them enough. After loosening, find the jack point under the car near where the wheel is. Place the stand under the jack point and jack up the car then place the car stand under the jack point at the side of the trolley jack then remove the trolley jack slowly letting the car rest on the stand. Do the same thing on the other read wheel so that the entire back is lifted slightly making it easier to work with both wheels.
  • Now remove the wheel bolts completely and remove the wheels. Locate the two 15mm bolts on the back of the brake caliper, just under the caliper holder. Remove them and liberally apply force on the caliper to get it out of the way. It’s a good idea to rest the caliper on the trolley jack to prevent you from bending any of the break pipes.
  • Once the caliper is removed, take out the brake pads and replace them with the new ones. Place the caliper back and place the bolts back in the correct position from the start and tighten fully. Place the wheel back on the car hub and tighten the bolts. The bolts won’t be able to be tightened fully since the car is still suspended. Repeat this ending process on the other wheel. Only after, using the jack under the car stands, lower the car back to the ground. Once the car is back on the ground, use the 17mm socket to make sure each wheel is completely tightened.
  • When shopping for ratchets, try to find some that have long handles so it is easier to apply the force needed to tighten the wheels’ bolts completely.
  • Congratulations on changing your brake pads and saving money that would otherwise be spent at the garage.

How do I change a tire on 2010 Routan?

place the hand brake on firmly--chock other wheels . loosen off the wheel nuts . jack the vehicle up finish removing the wheel nuts . pull the wheel of the studs . fit replacement spare wheel onto studs . do wheel nuts up as tight as possible . lower jack so that the wheel is on the ground . finish tightening the wheel nuts . Replace the jack and wrench in the boot along with the flat tyre . Take the flat tyre to a tyre shop for a puncture repair and have it fixed immediately. Most "people" leave the repair to a later time when they will need a spare that they do not have .The tyre change process is fully described in the owners hand book for your vehicle.

Hi haw can i change my wile Bering?

Park the car on level ground. Put the transmission in park and set the parking brake. Jack the car up and place the jack stands underneath the frame of the car.

Use the tire iron to remove the lug nuts from the wheel and pull the wheel off.

Use the ratchet set to remove the mounting screws on the disc brake caliper. Pull the caliper loose and then slide the disc off of the wheel studs.

Use the ratchet to loosen and remove the wheel hub mounting bolts located on the backside of the steering spindle.

Pull the entire wheel hub assembly off of the steering spindle. Take the assembly to a machine shop and have them use a hydraulic press to press out your bearing (the bearing is pressed into the hub assembly and is too big for at-home extraction).

Press in the new wheel bearings and then reassemble the wheel hub by mounting it on the steering spindle again.

Slide the disc back into place on the wheel studs and then remount the caliper with the mounting bolts. Slide the wheel back in place on the studs and tighten down the lug nuts in a star pattern.

Lower the car off of the jack stands or move on to change the other side's wheel bearings as well.

How do I change the wheel on a Kia Sorento 2008 (no manual)

start by breaking the lug nuts loose before you put it on the jack. Place the jack behind the wheel on the lower control arm where it going to have the strongest support, closet the the back of the wheel hub would be good. then raise it and change the wheel, then get the lugs good and snug, but wait to really crank them down tight till you have it back on the ground. If you try to torque them down really tight while it is on the jack, you could accidently knock it off the jack. Also be sure you are on good level ground for the change. Don't sit on the ground with your legs under the car either..... I have seen many people do this, and it is dangerous.

Jack stand

jack stands most times are placed under neath the axles however in your case the stands should be placed behind the front wheels on the spot where you whould place a regular jack if let's say you were changing a tire. if your working on the rear of the vehical you should put them under each side of rear axle.
