SOURCE: lug bolt

Safely jack and support the vehicle,remove wheel and tire assembly,with a punch and ball peen hammer (and safety glasses) or just a hammer,carefully knock broken stud out of the hub,it will fall out the back.Now take new stud and spin the hub until you find a spot where it will insert into the hole from the backside.Start the stud through the hole from the backside of the hub.Now at this point,you are going to PULL the stud into the hub,but the threads must be protected from galling.I use Anti Seize compound and some flat washers.Liberally coat the threads of the new stud with anti seize compound to protect the threads,stack some flat washers on the stud,install the lug nut,and tighten by hand.The stud will pull into the hub some.Remove lug nut,and stack more washers on the stud,and repeat the tightening process.Repeat process until stud is fully seated.Now remove anti seize compound with brake cleaner or equivalent solvent.Reinstall wheel and tire,and call this job completed.Remember to rate this solution.Good luck.

SOURCE: Removing the inside door lever, front driver's side

By lever, I take it you are refering to the handle that opens the door.

If this is what you are talking about, remove the screw under the plastic cover. Slide the whole assembly to the front of the car and pull the assembly out; there are two clips holding the assembly to the door. You have to push hard to slide the assembly.

SOURCE: front fork seals on 1999 cbr 900 leaking

hello and welcome
with the cold weather these seals are very apt to show leakage especially with age. the rubber seals become harder in material and will leak. the cold just helps with that and is more apt to do so then.
there is no good product that will work on these and fix them well enough to where they wont leak again soon. the best fix is the get the seals replaced. as the temps warm the leaking may stop. but as another cold front comes the seals will leak again. this can possibley throw off the balance of fluid in the forks and can be damageing. so again definately reccomend getting the seals changed at the earliest conveinience. thank you.

I cannot get in or out of my rear door and can get in but not out on my side door.took rear door apart and found 2 cone shaped plastic i guess retainers broken.called ford they want crazy price to...

The only thing I can suggest is try a junk yard. The Service Manual and that parts are probably going to cost more than the truck is worth (Face it--it's 20 years old) The manual alone will be over $100. You can try getting a Haynes Manual at an autoparts store for about $25 but it may not cover the info you need.

Lift gate wont unlatch on left side

Just repaired the same problem on 97 astro. Get in the back and look for the rear handle on the lift gate and remove it. Mine had two cover pieces over two 10mm bolts. Under the handle and handle plate you can access the push rod for the left side latch. Mine snapped back into place with the plastic holder still in place. You can also get a new plastic piece or wire to hold it into place. I think mine was shut to hard over just wiggled out over the years.

When driving down the road and turning left my vehicle rocks back and forth almost violently why is that?

I am going to use a Crown Vic as an example because we do not know what type of vehicle you have. On the Crown Vic there are rear stabilizer bars(sway bars) which go from one side of the body to the other. On each side there is a bolt with many rubber bushings which are meant to prevent the car body from shaking and rolling in turns.

Looking from the back of your car you will see the bar hanging down before the rear axle. One side, if not both sides have broken bolts. They are called suspension links and they are readily available at autoparts stores. You also have similar sway bars in the front. The front set bolts to the frame in a different type of mount.

You can have bad shocks or struts, moreso on one side as you indicate the problem is with left turns. On the extreme condition, a balljoint or tierod end can cause sloppyness in the body on turns.

There are some differences with rear suspension on front wheel drive cars and AWD vehicles. But is you see a bar underneath your vehicle just check out if it is still attached. I hope you found my solution very helpful and would be interested in your outcome.

Front bumper cover is broken, no lights along bottom.

Under the bumper cover is a fiberglass bumper. It could be broken or your bumper mounts could be bent on that side. It is best to remove the screws (on the side of the wheel well) and 10mm bolts holding the bumper cover, and locate the two frontal bolts in each bracket. There are also some plastic push pin nuts in various spots too. Don't try to get the push pins under the headlights, they will come with when the bumper is removed.

2003 Protege5 front suspension knocking noise

front stuts need replacement, buy this point it would be both. you can tell most of the time buy if you hit a pot hole on the left and it makes a nosie thats the side. but after a few days of driving like this both are in bad shape and need replacement.

there is no bearing its just the strut, you can tell buy getting a jack stand and lifting the front and moving the tire side to side and back to front. usaly anything over 10-20 thouthands of an inch is bad, and that mean if you feel it it's bad.

but anyways to replace it you will need a sop, you have to compress your front srping in order to remove and install a strut.

On the plastic cover take a small screw driver and pry one of the open ends, in other words if you look at the cover carefully it is shaped like a U, pry on the top right side of the U to un-snap then rotate or twist the cover to remove.Then you can get to the screws that hold it into place/

Vw golf bonnet release

On mine, a RHD, it is a plastic lever just forward of the door post. It is a crappy piece of plastic about four inches long.Mine has recently broken and will result in a bill for about £60-70 for replacing the lever and the cable (the cable is very tight)
Getting the handle off was a hell of a job until someone spotted that inside the handle, on the lower part as accessed from the outside, is a clip that needs to be pulled out to release the handle. Only then could we reach the cable and that took an enourmopus amount of effirt to release the bonnet.
As the mechanic said, "I didn't expect this sort of rubbish from VW"
