All you have to do to remove the rear lifts is first raise the lift and support it with a piece of wood such as a cut length of 2x4.I suggest supporting both sides evenly as to not twist the lift out of shape.At the end of each lift where they attatch is a socket and socket clip which snaps onto a steel ball.On the socket side is a clip that wraps around the end of the lift to retain the ball.On one of the sides of the clip should be a groove to allow a small flathead screwdriver to be inserted under the clip to allow the clip to be pried up a little to allow for the ball to be popped out.This should be the case for both ends of each lift.The lifts are sold at most major auto parts outlets and run anywhere from 25 to 85 dollars a piece.My advice is not to cut corners on price because with gas charged lifts you get what you pay for.The new lifts should just snap on without the use of any tools.Remove blocks and you should be in business.I hope this has helped you....

SOURCE: How to install rear hatch door struts on a 97Astrovan

in case you havent figured it out, or for the next person that needs help. . .

i needed to replace my rear window struts.
i stuck a flathead screw driver in each of the metal clips at each end of the strut and pryed them loose. the struts popped right off the mounts. i also unscrewed the rear speaker panel so i could remove the wire connecting the strut to the car (rear defroster?) and remove completely. i wanted to take the whole unit to the autoparts store and compare it to the new strut. when buying replacements, i noticed the new struts did not come with the electrical housing on the upper end, just a male thread. i was stumped because i couldnt get the housing off of the old strut . . .i didnt want to damage it trying.

i finally i got the nerve. all it took was a pair of channel locks (pliers). grip the rod tight enough to unscrew the housing from the rod. after breaking loose, it should come right off easily.

i realized after that i didnt need to open the speaker panel and disconnect the wire. i probably could have just unhooked the strut and unscrewed the housing (while the wire remained connected to the van), screwed the new strut back into the housing, and reattached the strut to the van.

installation is the opposite of removal. i also read on a few sites that its a good idea to replace them both at the same time.

Rear brake caliper won't slide across to allow movement to put in new pads. One side no worries other no way? Any ideas. Lexus es 300 2005!


From experience brakes can get hot if they are old and worn out. Maybe there was a blockage when the brake fluid was released. I had to replace all brake lines once on a vehicle because the fluid had gone past its used by and was contaminated with the moisture from the air.
Maybe degreasing and then a product like RP7 or WD40 could help. Some vehicles its possible to take the brakes off and soak them in a degreaser and recondition them.

Rear lift door on my 2004 Denali Yukon (SWB)will not stay up. Both lift rods seemed to have failed simultaneously. Can they be fixed or must they be replaced?


They need to be changed. Buy 2 new gas springs, support the gate, and pop off clips holding them on. Install new ones with clips provided and remove support. I just did this on my Focus a couple of months ago. Easy fix.

1992 Ford Crown Victoria Oil Pan is leaking. Is this a major problem to replace? Fred


It is recommended that you lift out the engine before attempting to replace the oil pan. Once the engine is lifted you can remove the bolts, remove the pan, clean all the old gasket material.
Installation: Remove the rear main bearing cap oil seal Remove the timing cover oil seal Clean all the mating surfaces and seal grooves Install new oil pan front cover seals Install a new rear main bearing cap oil seal Install new oil pan side gaskets on the block Make sure the tabs of the front and rear seal fit properly as these are critical spots Attach the oil pan to the engine block and install the retaining bolts

2005 Lexus RX330 HID ballast replacement, passenger side headlight. What is the removal procedure please?


I have a 2005 Lexus Rx330 with HID AFS headlight. My passenger side light went out. I thought the bulb burnt out, so I bought a new bulb. After replacing the new bulb, it happened exactly like my old bulb. It light up lightly and then total black out. What's wrong with it? I thought the ballast burnt. I called Lexus dealer and asked for the new ballast/transformer. Surprised me, they don't know what is it. They told me they only know the wiring harness and the socket, but not the ballast ??????? Could you tell me what do I need to replace?

Thanks,
