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.

Tip

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.

Jacking points vitara jx 1994


Anywhere on the frame will work in between the wheels. There is no where on the outside of the wheel base that is a safe jacking point. If you are using the jack that comes with the vehicle do not get under the car with that in place. Not sturdy enough.

Hi all how do i use the jack of a 1997 318i bmw on the back wheel that is flat


Hi, BMW's have a jacking point. If you are looking at the back wheel, look along the side skirts under the back passenger door. There will be a small disc with a horizontal hole. Use a screw driver to turn the disc until it comes out, that is your jacking point.

Place the jack's horizontal arm all the way into the jacking point and start to wind the jack handle. The car will then start to rise at the back. The same prinicple appplies for the front as well, the fronts jacking point is on the skirting under the front doors.

Jacking points on all Jeep vehicles



c17hydro_1.gif

Your Jeep was supplied with a jack for emergency road repairs. This jack is fine for changing a flat tire or other short-term procedures not requiring you to go beneath the vehicle. Do not attempt to use the jack on any portions of the vehicle other than specified by the vehicle manufacturer. Always block the diagonally opposite wheel when using a jack.

Placing a floor jack under the rear frame rail at the leaf spring shackle. It may be necessary to place a block of wood between the frame rail and the jack

Supporting the front of the vehicle with jack stands placed under each frame rail


A more convenient way of jacking is the use of a garage or floor jack. You may use the floor jack at the specified points in following the illustrations.

Never place the jack under the radiator, engine or transmission components. Severe and expensive damage will result when the jack is raised. Additionally, never jack under the floorpan or bodywork; the metal will deform

If the propeller shafts are to be removed, select NEUTRAL in the main gearbox. WARNING: The front and rear suspension lower arms must NOT be used as lifting / jacking points.

2004 tiburon : front jacking points?


The official front jacking points are on the reinforced edge of the unit body, just behind the front wheels.

If you're using a hydraulic jack, you can jack the front of the car from the front tow hook, place your axle stands under the front jack points, then let the car down onto the axle stands.

Always use axle stands when working on your car, never trust the jack alone.
