    The drivers side of the car door locks stop working especially when in the sun. I paid to get the drivers side fixed $400 so I want to do the drivers side rear door myself. .. Or fix it? Can I get an adequate used part somewhere?

    There are discount import parts stores that offer parts for less. Other than that you will just have to search online.

Ford explorer 2000 all wheel drive not working

all wheel drive vehicles have to work at both ends all the time unless you have a major failure in the drive train. That is why it is called all wheel drive as opposed to 4 wheel drive. With 4 wheel drive you have the option of rear wheel drive or 4 wheel drive and normally in a high ratio or low ratio gear selection. With some all wheel drive vehicles there is a selector that locks the middle diff and creates a 4 wheel drive option without the high/low gear ratio option. So in practice if the both front wheels are in the bog then there is no all wheel drive as the centre diff is working as it should and placing all the action in the rear wheels which will not be turning as they have traction so the front wheels spin faster.. If you have a centre diff lock option ensure that it is operational.

My 2002 Toyota Avalon is shaking when I apply the brakes. I have replaced the front and rear brake pads and the front rotors with Raybestos ones. It still shakes. Could the rear rotors be warped?

That's what I would imagine. It is usually the front rotors that warp due to the fact that they work a little harder than the rears. However, rear rotors can warp. If you feel the shake more in the body of the car, so in the seat and you feel like the whole car is moving and the steering wheel stays mostly calm then I would imagine the rear rotors are warped. However if the shaking is felt mostly in the brake pedal and the steering wheel shakes too then it is probably your front rotors. Shops can usually resurface rotors and it may be cheaper than buying new, so that could be an option for you.

Subaru impreza rear diff noise??

jack car up and remove the rear shaft retainer plate, 6 14mm bolts. use a 12mm spanner to remove the 4 nuts and bolts on rear of tailshaft and front, take the shaft out completely, check for play in the front yolk of the diff, there should be very minimal play, if there is alot of play or worse your getting rotations then the front bearing is gone and will need replacing, you can get the whole diff centre fro about $260 from sunbury parts in qld. cheaper and quicker option, make sure the gear rations are the same.

What are the bearings on the splined end of the rear axles (In the diff housing). 2000 suburban 1500 4wd w/8.6 rear. They both have caps on them w/2 bolts holding them on. Are they hard to replace.

Those are carrier side bearings. Usually they need to be pressed on to the carrier and on many, positioning is critical to avoid premature gear wear and failure. If those bearings fail, depending upon the level of failure, they will contaminate the gear lube and also damage the pair of bearings on the pinion gear, in which case the entire differential needs to be set up for proper clearances (basically rebuilt) which requires a fair level of knowledge and learned skills as well as a dial indicator. At that point, many times replacing the unit end to end with one from a scrapyard is cheaper and faster.

Repeat issues with drivers side front brake caliper

Were the lines to the brakes completely flushed out? If not have that done. Contaminates in the fluid id common and will bind the pistons in the brake calipers causing premature wear to the brake pads
If the pistons are sticking they will need to be removed and the inner piston wall cleaned thoroughly. Rebuilt calipers are much easier to replace if rebuilding your own is not an option you want to take

2002 Mazda Tribute rear liftgate lock replacement

I'm not sure where' the screws are but basically You need to remove the panel on the rear door, then once the panel (interior trim) has been removed you should see a lock mechanism which will be screwed/bolted in place. Easier and cheaper then buying a brand new lock mechanism (unless you want to buy brand new) is going to a wreckers and finding your car model and get it that way (yes it's used but it'll probably save you tons of money vs the dealership) Best Regards.

Noise in rear differencial

Remove the rear cover and check for fine metal in the lube. Most internal differential problems are expensive to repair and require both experience and specific knowledge regarding using dial indicators etc. It is generally cheaper to replace the unit from drum to drum with a scrapyard unit where all that is necessary is to match the gear tooth (on ring and pinion gears) count to maintain the proper match to the front diff. This applies to all diff failures except outer axle bearings.

2006 Town & Country no air conditioning

The plug kit was maybe a 10 dollar part + freon & labor you could have gotten it cheaper,evaporator leakage would be common on any make but seems chrysler has had more of them because there are more of them on the road compared to the other makes.Climate (salt belt region) and vibration are contributing factors to failure but that will apply to any vehicle no matter the make.

2000 Ford Focus electric locks/acuator failure recurring problem

I would follow their recommendation as I had the same problem with my car. They unhooked the power to that door and it was fine. The problem was a short in the wiring in the door that was causing the problem. So maybe get them to check the wiring in the door as well.

Differetial locks for 94 land cruiser

91-97 Land Cruisers had a factory option for front and rear locking differentials. This is a seperate switch and is usually located to the left of US model Land Cruisers. The center dash button locks your transfer case differential changing your Land Cruiser from all wheel drive to four wheel drive depending if you have ABS or not this button either says ECT or Center Dif Lock. If you do not have the Front/Rear locking differential option then your Land Cruiser has open Front and Rear. Hope this answers your question.
