SOURCE: the passenger side chair no longer reclines how

I believe you can, there should only be four bolts holding down the chair, when you git it off look underneath it and you will see the problem. If you have any electrical connections, don't worry the only plug in one way, and there are usually only one. Good luck man. (or woman)

SOURCE: Volvo S40 :clutch pedal spring

The spring broke on my S40 clutch pedal too.
The old spring looks like a modified volvo part since none of the S40 clutch pedal springs at Volvo spares looks exactly the same as the one that broke. The one that broke looks similar to the replacement part that I bought, but one can clearly see that the old one was cut shorter at the other end and bent over to make it fit onto the clutch pedal mechanism. This is absolutely pathetic. I am taking it to Volvo to fix their rubbish themselves - and then they are still going to charge me R750 ($100) to replace a stupid spring! By the way, Volvo always wants the vehicle VIN number when buying spares because some of their cars (of the same year and model) use different parts - CAN YOU BELIEVE THIS! By the way, I am replacing the spring to pull the pedal all the way back - otherwise if I start the car in the mornings then the pedal is nearly on the floor when the car starts moving. If I pull the pedal back with my foot , then all is back to normal. I am scared that I may have no clutch after some time - so I will rather replace it.

Remove the visible bolt from the left side of the arm rest.


Remove the window switch/door lock/mirror controls by popping the entire panel out, may need to use a flathead screwdriver.


Slide panel off of door.


Pull vapor barrier loose on the bottom right side. This will expose a coiled spring and window motor. Tape the window in the up position using masking or packaging tape.


Mark a straight line across the coil spring, to help with realigning the new motor.


Use tool j-38864 connect it near outer part of coil sprint where it hooks to retainer or in a pinch use pounted vice grips at same location ensuring they are firmly locked on spring.


Force spring clockwise to disengage it from it's retainer point.


Pull spring slightly outward just enough to clear the retainer point and slowly let it uncoil counterclockwise.


Disconnect wire connector from right end of window motor.


Push the three plastic retainer points outward as you lift up on window motor to disengage from retainers careful not to break the plastic retainers comes out pretty easy

Install new motor into the plastic retainers, make sure it is fully seated.


Reconnect wire connector to new motor.


Use J38864 or vice grips to recoil spring, reseating it to retainer point as before.


Remove tape from window and test up/down switch.


Reseal vapor barrier in place as it was before.


Slide switch control back up through hole in door panel from where it mounts and slide door over the door handle.


Align retaining clips to holes and push them home with gentle raps of your hand start at the top and work downward on panel.


Replace the bolts in the arm rest and pop back in the controls.

How do i remove the front seats of a 1998 Pontiac Grand Prix?


On W-Body vehicles, the front seats are secured to the floorpan by two front hook attachments and two rear bolts installed to nuts welded to the floorpan.
The manually operated two-way front adjusters provides only fore and aft movement of the seat. When the seat adjuster handle located on the front seat is pulled up, the seat adjusters unlock, permitting travel of the seat. When the seat is in the desired position and the seat adjuster handle is released, the seat locks in place.
A power operated six-way seat adjuster is available. The adjusters are activated by three 12 volt, reversible, permanent magnet motors with a built-in circuit breaker. The motors are energized by a switch bolted on the seat side panel.
The three motors drive the front seat and rear vertical actuators and a horizontal actuator. When the adjusters reach the limit of travel, torque is absorbed through the rubber mounted grommets located between the motor and the support. An overload relay is provided in the circuit and will open should excessive stall be applied.
The optional 60/40 split bench front seats have seat back head restraints on the driver's and passenger's seat back. The head restraints are designed so they cannot be removed from the seat back without first inserting a small rounded tool inside the head restraint support tube to release the locking tab. The 60/40 split bench seat is equipped with a reclining mechanism on both the driver's and passenger's side. The recliner lever is located on the outboard side of the spring cushion. When the lever is pulled upward, the spring loaded dual linear reclining unit located in the cushion frame is released, allowing the seat back to be pushed rearward or allowing the spring loaded reclining unit to bring the seat back forward.
Bucket seats are equipped with manual reclining mechanisms. An optional six-way power seat adjuster is available. Some bucket seats are equipped with inertia seat back locks. This system allows the seat back to fold forward without requiring the occupant to release a locking lever or access to the rear seat area. During a sudden stop or deceleration, or if the front of the vehicle is nose down, the inertia system of the seat back lock will engage, holding the seat back in its rest position. A release lever is provided to allow manual release of the seat back lock when the vehicle is in the nose down position. The release lever is located at the lower rear outboard corner of the seat back.
Some W-Body vehicles (notably Pontiac coupes) have passenger front seats equipped with an E-Z Entry device. This is actuated, in an unoccupied seat, by completely folding the seat back forward disengaging the adjuster, and sliding the front seat forward to gain access to the rear seat area. To return the seat to its normal position, return the seat back to its rest position, and slide the entire seat rearward, engaging the adjuster.
W-Body rear seats are available in several styles including a rear seat with an integral child restraint device.

Don't know where my return spring goes on my 71 firebird for the clutch.


You should have a heavy return spring under the dash on the pedal and a lighter one on the clutch linkage with one end hooking beside the rod pushing onto the clutch pivot. (some have a small hole for the spring) (The clutch pivot is the part going into the bell housing holding the bearing) and the other end hooking on something that will keep the pivot and bearing away from the clutch when you are not pushing the clutch pedal.
TIP. When sitting stopped for any length of time with the engine running......(and more important with heavy duty clutches)....put the vehicle in neutral and keep your foot OFF the clutch.

The shifting lever will only go about !/2 inch back when I hold my foot on the brake It won't go in gear


check your shift interlock spring on the left side of the shifter--it should attach to the upper pink pivot--the hook breaks off the pink part--drill a hole and fish the spring threw the pink part the opposing hook should still be on the shifter case--the spring is about an inch long look for it toward the rear on the console area

Front seat stays in the reclined postion..


The seat position is changed through the use of a cable that runs through a flexible tunnel, under the seat. In one case that I'm aware of, this cable got stuck around a projecting seat spring under the seat. When the seat was reclined and moved backward or forward, the cable caught on the seat spring and the seat had insufficient slack in the cable to release from the reclined position.
