SOURCE: I have a broken plastic piece on my 01 Expedition

you have several options so do not feel screwed yet. first of all if you have the broken piece you can use clear epoxy and permanently glue it back together. Also, you can search on line or call a junk yard for the part you need.

How to remove upper part of center consule, where the oil pressure gauge is on a 1983 porsche 944?

1) Remove two screws visible on top corners

2) Pull off the 3 HVAC sliders (pull with a little force) and pull off the fan speed knob

3) Using a flathead, carefully pry off the bezel that surrounds the HVAC sliders. It might be clipped on at the bottom. Don't worry about breaking the clips, you can use 3M mounting tape to get it back on even if you completely eff it up.

4) There are 2 more screws visible now, remove them

5) Now, pull on the main plastic shroud that goes around the top and sides - hard, but without breaking any plastic. It might take a couple minutes, but it will eventually come out to expose the goodies behind it.

6) The clock is attached by a metal piece that holds it against the plastic face. Remove the two thumb-screws, and remove the metal foot piece. Unplug wiring and remove clock.
Remove the 2 top screws first.

you need to remove the 2 tiny bolt head screws on the bottom under there in white.

2005 Lincoln LS V6 Ash Tray stays open, wont close

Pop out the ashtray. Remove the ashtray assembly (the housing). if you flip the ashtray over and look at the bottom you can see a small spot where a piece of plastic has broken off (this should be obvious). In the ashtray housing there is the latch mechanism with the broken "nipple" probably stuck inside of the mechanism. Get the plastic piece out and discard it. Reinstall the housing only.

Now, get a TINY ( I mean really small, like 4mm long and maybe 1/4-1/2mm diameter) screw handy. Drill a slightly smaller hole right through the ashtray where the piece of plastic was before it broke off. screw in the screw from the TOP of the ashtray so it only pokes out of the bottom 1.5 MMor so. Put the ashtray in. If it still doesn't "catch" screw the screw in a little further so it sticks out the bottom a little more. If it binds you've ******* the screw in too far so back it off. You get the drift.

This takes about 30 minutes. It's hard to explain but once you look at the bottom of the ashtray you'll understand the concept. Hope this helps somebody out there.

Battery terminater is brokken and caused car computer to burn out. What can I do to fix it?

for a quick fit just to take you from where you are to the nearest garage changing battery it is as follows. If you can find a long metal screw try to screw through the broken piece of the terminal from top center going through and then go by the battery where the terminal was broken and continue to screw on the base of the terminal. Be careful not to have a very long screw and get through to battery itself. just to be long enough in order to tight by joining together the broken terminal. connect your wire on the terminal and start the car. are you sure you have a burnt computer or is just not starting and is your opinion about?

Sounds like scores are out in the door regulator. You can pull the door panel off following instructions on the net (on youtube) My bet is that you have screws that hold the track in place that have come loose and the window regulator is pushing it askew when it's near the top. If it's going up and down, it means the regulator is good.. You'll see at the bottom of the window the regulator typically attaches to two plastic pieces on the bottom. It's also possible that one of those screws has rusted/broken and the window is twisting out of the track near the top. My bet is the rear track rail has come loose on one of it's upper or lower screws, and the widow is not getting guided properly when it gets to the top. Really easier than you think to remove the door skin and see.

How do i replace a shift knob on a hyundai accent 2001, cable wont let me continue. thank you.

If you look closely , shifter knob is two pieces. You need to seperate them by pushing the lower part down.Use a wide flat head screwdriver (make sure it is not sharp). Place it on the top of the lower part where two pieces meet and hit on top of the screwdriver. That will push the lower part down and give you access to philips head screws that hold the upper part. After you remove those screws pull the knob out. This will help. Thanks please keep updated. please do rate the solution positively .thank you for using fixya

My x5 bmw driver door willnot open from outside

It sounds like the handle may be broken, or the linkage may be broken or disconnected

On the inside trim, you can remove screws (these screws may be covered by filler pieces or may be visible, or they may require you pry a plastic piece off that covers the screws) that are by the door handle, arm rest, under door and side of door and then gently pull back on the panel as there will also be retaining clips attached and you don't want to break them. You'll need to lift the door panel upwards in order to get it off the window ledge. Then you'll need to manipulate the panel and disconnect the door handle linkage from the door handle and disconnect the wiring for your controls. Pull back the weather seal and then you can gain access to the exterior handle

The black bracket that attaches the drivers side mirror to the window is broken. What is involved in replacing that?

On the inside of the door where the window frame meets the door panel on the front there should be a plastic piece which is usually roughly triangular. If there are no visable screws then gently pull and pry the piece off and behind it will be a couple of screws or bolts that hold the mirror and bracket on. There will be a wire plug also if you have electric or heated mirrors and it should just unplug.

CD Player does not eject CD

Just took one apart tonight. Same problem, put in cd-played fine-push eject then click click click.
2004 nissan sentra 140 watt single cd player/radio.
This dash comes apart by pulling the top of dash (with the tray) straight out the clips should release. the bottom part had to be pried a little, then remove four screws and slide out the radio still attached to the mount and dash etc. One screw holds on the top of the stereo. After removing the screw you must pry the top off. Now it gets a little tricky, you must remove the cd player portion, however there are 5 tiny springs holding it down to some pads. The two springs in the rear are under a piece of the stereos frame held on by two screws, I had to use various sizes of tweezers to get the springs off. Lift the player out of the radio about an inch, you will see one 1/2" ribbon in a connector, the top of the connector slides out along the ribbon to release. The other ribbon about the same size plugs into a small daughter board in the radio, it just pulls out and pushes in (you can feel it is reinforced). once out turn it over and you will see what would be considered a gearbox, (small white gears in a see through case) one of the corners of this case has a screw through it. This corner has broken away from the board letting the gears come apart when trying to eject (this is the clicking). I took a soldering iron and melted the plastic back together and put a small amount of 5-min epoxy on for good measure. When putting back into case you can hook up the ribbon cables before all the spring grief and test it out. Mine worked perfectly again. Be care full when putting back together, there are a lot of little micro switches that must be in the correct position) Example, if the cd is ejected the white arm on the right side must be in the correct position. the read head (laser) must be away from the center of the cd. I believe it was easier to put together with it in the cd-in position (without a cd in it) so the laser must be toward the center of the cd. Don't force the laser, use the worm gear to move it in or out. I couldn't put one of the springs back on but it still works fine Good luck, it's not as hard as it sounds
