To replace motor mount on your vehicle. Park the vehicle in level position. chock the wheels and set the parking brake, put the transmission shifter in park and disconnect the battery positive cable. Motor mount is located between engine and chassis. Support your engine whit the jack using 3/4" piece of plywood and set it under the oil pan. Loosen the motor mount bolt and lift slightly jack upward about 1/2" and remove the motor mount bushing and replace it whit new one and reverse instalation of removal process.

Alright, it can be quite a Job. Starting of course by removing the door cover you can almost immeditaly take out the old one, its getting the new one in thats the triky part. you have to bend the fusing rods over about a half an inch because any new ones they make now are bigger than the stock ones. then you have to re route the converter ions to the back-up power control to get optimum power for your window. then you have to make sure the new motor is in place becuase it can fall out easily, put a screw right threw it and into the door. that should do it!

SOURCE: My CV's are clicking and i need to replace them what are the steps to replace both the Passenger and drivers side?

I've never changed cv joints on a Ford, but my experience w/ other vehicles has been the realization that it's a tough job, lots of labor involved. You can do it, but u really have to get a good repair manual so u can see illustrations, and follow the many steps involved. Pick up a Haynes or Chilton manual (available online, or many parts stores), or subscribe to an online repair source like e-mitchell. To list all that's involved here would take too much time and space. Good luck, u can do it! countrycurt0

How to take off oil pan


You have to remove the bolts out of the motor mounts so they will come apart and then lift the engine for the pan to come off. Make sure you remove the distributor cap before you lift or it will get damaged. A lot of guys used to jack on the bottom crank pulley but be VERY CAREFUL. Use small pumps on the jack and as soon as the engine stops moving up, STOP jacking. This should give you enough room. Hope this helps.

How can I change the rotors and brakes on a 2006 Cadillac?


Front brake
Step 1: Identify Front Disc Brake Components
brake_pads_rotor.jpg
Front Wheel Drive Brake Assembly
Most front disc brake components include: brake rotor, brake pads, brake caliper, caliper mount and brake flex hose. Brake service usual occurs between 20,000 and 40,000 miles depending on driver habits, road conditions and brake pad/ rotor materials used.
Step 2: Remove Brake Caliper to Replace Pads
brake_pad_set.jpg
Removing Brake Caliper Mounting Bolts
Locate primary caliper mounting bolts; apply wrench pressure counter-clockwise (When looking at the head of the bolt) to remove the bolts, upper and lower. Make sure the bolt threads are in good shape and replace if necessary.
Step 3: Remove Front Brake Caliper
remove_brake_caliper.jpg
Remove Front Brake Caliper
After removing the primary caliper mounting bolts lift the brake caliper off of the rotor and then tie or secure to the side, being careful not to bend or kink the brake caliper flex hose. Thoroughly inspect brake caliper and brake hoses for leakage, cracks or chaffing and replace as needed. Next remove the brake pads (If not mounted in the caliper) and secondary caliper mounting bolts. Notice how great protective gloves work, most technicians use them on the job today.
Step 4: Remove Brake Pads
remove_brake_pads.jpg
Remove Front Brake Pads
Once the brake pads have been removed, make sure if there is anti rattle hardware to transfer to the new brake pads. Some brake pad manufacturers will include the proper lube (Caliper slides) and anti-rattle hardware to ensure proper performance of their product.
Step 5: Remove Caliper Mount
remove_brake_pads_holder.jpg
Remove Caliper Mount Bracket
Finish removing secondary caliper mount bolts and remove caliper mount. Note: clean and lube caliper slides and pad friction surfaces of all foreign material or build-up.
Step 6: Remove Brake Rotor
brake_rotor.jpg
Remove Brake Rotor
With the caliper mount out of the way you can now remove the brake rotor. Sometimes it can get stuck so you may need to tap it with a hammer or use penetrating oil to free it up. Some manufacturers use small screws to hold the rotor on as well. Clean and inspect wheel studs, replace if any are damaged. Also clean bearing hub rotor mount surface to ensure the proper mounting of the new brake rotor. Inspect the ABS sensor wheel for cracks or damage and replace as needed.
Step 7: Depressing the Brake Caliper
compress_caliper.jpg
Resetting Brake Caliper
To install the new brake pads you must retract the brake caliper piston. Remove the master cylinder lid or open the brake caliper bleeder screw to allow excess brake fluid to be released if necessary. Install C clamp tool and gently tighten clamp until caliper piston is fully depressed. Note: use old brake pad to protect the caliper piston. Close the bleeders once the piston is retracted completely
Step 8: Installing New Brake Rotor
new_brake_rotor.jpg
Install Brake Rotor
Install new brake rotor, the new rotor is manufactured with a protective film over the rotor to keep it from rusting, remove protective film with brake cleaner before installing; also after the brake job is complete you may experience a small amount of smoke from the rotor when first used. This is normal and will go away after the first couple of uses.
Step 9: Installing New Front Brake Pads
new_brake_pads.jpg
Installing New Brake Pads
Reinstall the front brake caliper mount, and then install front brake pads. Make sure the pads are seated properly in the caliper mount; it must be a close fit to work properly..
Step 10: Reinstall Front Brake Caliper
front_brake_rotor_pads.jpg
Re-Install front Bake Caliper
Reinstall front brake caliper and reinstall caliper-mounting bolts, recheck all mounts and mounting bolts. Check the caliper slides to be sure there is no bind and that the caliper moves freely back and forth on the caliper slides. Bleed brake system per manufacturer's specifications to relieve any air trapped in the system. Before driving the vehicle, push the brake pedal down and let it up slowly, repeat until normal brake pedal operation resumes, this operation is forcing the brake pads to travel to the brake rotors.

Can anyone offer some advice as to whether we can expect much more out of our sweet little car?....2003 ford focus wagon with 160k miles on her. has been a great car. just had the transmission rebuilt, and...


first off id go to Autozone or O'Reillys and get a Chilltion or Haynes book about 20.00. If the rear shocks need to be replaced id say you are looking at around 120.00 motormounts you need to I think the rear mount is 140. and the front mount is about 90.00. You can save a tone of money if you can get one of the two books I stated above it has step by step instructions. As long as you kepp the oil changed and drive it correctley you can get quit a bit more miles out of your car,,,,,,best of luck

1995 BUICK PARK AVENUE Water pump replacement


Hi,



Here is how you do it step by step;

STEP 1. Loosen the bolts on the water pump flywheel then remove the belt.

STEP 2. Take a oil-pan length 2x4 and use it in betwen jack and oil pan and jack up engine almost so that steering pump fluid cover on top side almost hits cross bar.

STEP 3 Remove the center bolt of the motor mount holding the two halves of the mount together.


STEP 4 Remove two bolts and one nut on the engine side mount. Remove 4 bolts (2 on top and two hidden on side) of the bolts holding the mount to the frame.


STEP 5. Now take a big 2x4 and wedge it so as to move the engine to the driver side of the compartment. At the same time rotate and move the mount piece on the engine side rotating about the stud [that the nut came off of]so as to paritally split apart the two mount halves. You'll see that you can now get at the two hidden bolts.


SEP 6. Remove the water pump pulley wheel. There are a bunch of small and little bolts in the water pump...some on bottom side.


STEP 7 Remove them and old pump and Scrape off old gasket.




STEP 8. Apply new gasket and sealer to new pump and reverse order to install.




Good luck..

  1. 1 Locate and remove the power steering reservoir from behind the driver's side headlight assembly. Pull straight upward, sliding it off its mount and set aside for access to the headlight bulb. Make sure you keep it upright so it does not spill.
  2. Step 2 Locate and remove the electrical connector from the back of the bulb. Depress the locking tab to release it and pull the connector down, removing it from the bulb.
  3. Step 3 Turn the bulb counterclockwise ¼-turn then pull the bulb straight out of the headlight assembly. Insert a new bulb into the headlight assembly and turn it ¼-turn clockwise to lock it in place.
  4. Step 4 Install the electrical connector by plugging it into the bottom of the bulb. Push the connector in until the locking tab engages the bulb, securing it to the bulb.
  5. Step 5 Slide the power steering pump reservoir onto its mount.

Motor mount


Yes this mount supports a lot of the motor. It also supports the transmission so if you are on a down hill slope the motor will roll forward and cause a lot of pressure on the front mount. Hope this helps.
