I was able to completely remove marks from a sharpie on my countertop using some driveway cleaner/degreaser (Purple Power). The two main ingredients are alcohol and sodium hydroxide. It might work on other hard surfaces.

If the plastic is a smooth variety you can try going over the marks with the same perm marker and cleaning very quickly before it dries. If the plastic is textured, good luck.

External thermometre is not working where is this located

Normally most of them are located around the front of the vehicle near the front grill. It will be a small plastic sensor with either 2 or 3 wires going into it and nothing coming out of it. So look around the front grill and headlight area for something that looks like the tip of a larger permanent marker tip without the top on it and has wires connected to it. Hope this helps b

How to replace a front side marker bulb on a 2007 Toyota Yaris Sedan

You don't need a dealer for much of anything

All of todays vehicles require removing the lamp
assembly or housings,front or rear, of any vehicle,to
take out the lamps/bulbs

If you open the hood you will find screws that hold it in place

May not be an easy job, but that's the junk were sold

2003 ford focus zx3 How to replace rt front marker bulb ???

the inner fender will provide a way. I would simply take it to a store and ask them nicely if they will do the install - -many times they will do it and at no charge. - if you must - -carefully pull away the inner fender from under the car - and look for the back of the marker -

DO NOT PRY on the plastic or you will break it and still not be able to change out the bulb.

Can't get passenger side marker light out on a 2007 kia spectra

There is one bolt on top of the radiator support and another in back. The assy fits into a pluug that keeps it aligned so it cam be tough to remove. Just wiggle it side to side while pulling and it'll slowly come out.

Are you looking to fix the bulb that is in the corner of the headlamp? You don't need to remove the head light for that. The is a black cap that screws off just beind it.

Drain all your coolant into a conatiner using the plug on the radiator, loosen and disconnct the top hose at the engine, then the bottom one at the radiator, and replace in reverse order. This is not hard to do, and just make sure your coolant is in good condition or replace it with a 50/50 mix of either the red or older green coolant. If you change the coolant to the new style (red) use a water hose and flush as best as possible, then replace with the red newer style coolant. You can use either, but you cannot mix them. They will gel up after time if mixed so with all the coolant out, it is a good time to switch to the new and when the job is complete, make sure you mark it somehow that it has the new version of coolant. A sticker with it written in permanent marker is best, but using just the permanent marker on something that can be readily seen is just as good.

How to replace Marker lamp in 1999 Toyota Corolla

Open the hood. Observe the area above the right headlamp, close to the fender. You will see a phillips screw that holds a plastic tab. Remove the phillips screw. After removing the screw, pull the marker lamp assembly towards you. It may be real tight, if it has never been removed before. You need to pull the light assembly out of 2 retention sockets behind the marker lamp. Rotate the bulb socket to get to the bulb, replace the bulb, & slide it back in.Easy job.

Mercury Grand Marquis Side Marker, Driver Side

Hi, I checked my manual at the shop today and of course it had no information on the side marker light. But it did show that when you remove the front headlight assembly, you gain access to that side. I had a car in the shop for a different problem and I think you can get to it from the bottom after removing the plastic cover under the car below the bumper.
