How do I get the harmonic balancer off a 2007 jeep compass

According to JeepForum: Jhanna said, "Just did mine last month to replace the output shaft ". bolts are the trick. I did not have long enough 6mm bolts, so I ran a 1/4" tap through the 3 holes. A lot easier than I thought, 6mm is just a bit smaller than 1/4", so it went fast.

Then 3, 2" long 1/4" bolts. I bought each bolt up until tight, then turned each bolt a couple of turns in order, once it started moving, went pretty smooth. I guess if yours are bending, use grade 8.

No heat and when heat is turned on a tapping noise

It's the blend door actuator located behind the center radio console. A pretty simple and straight forward fix as I found out last night. You can get the part at most retailers, I found Advance auto was the cheapest in the bensalem, pa area. To remove the radio you will need a tool available at parts dealers as well or if your even moderatelt handy I made them from a coat hangar. Take the radio out, remove the rest of the moulding and climate controls(one piece), unplug the traction control/back up alarm if equipped and move the whole assy to the side. You will see the top of the actuator looking through the radio slot. The screws (3) are bolt head an extention comes in handy here. When you pull the old unit note the position of the post, you will have to plug the wires into the new unit and adjust the new post using the front climate control with the engine on. The rest is done in reverse. There is one pretty good video on facebook that goes throught the whole thing.. Good Luck P.S. took about 30-40 mins.

The original radio and wipers of 1998 BMW 3181just went off.

Check your fuses. If moisture or a power surge happen recently it's pretty common. NOTE have your radio code handy, you'll need that to get radio up and running.

Is is possible to repair a power aerial which has pulled out? XK 2007

I don't think you are going to repair it, it will need replacing, a coat hanger will work, but won't look too good on the jag. Unless you have some special tools that will crimp on the antennae. Maybe a radio installer can do it, those guys are pretty handy. Hope this helps.

My 1997 honda accord radio

Unlocking Error E3 on Honda AccordI had the same problem after my battery died and I didn't know what "Code" meant so I just pushed buttons until I got Error E3 and it locked up. You need to disconnect one battery terminal for 30 seconds or so, then reconnect, and the radio will say "Code" again. Type in the 5 digit code fount on the Anti-Theft Radio Identification Card (a white credit card size card that comes with the vehicle at the time of purchase). This will unlock the radio and return it to a functional state. It worked for me, so I hope that helps.
Try this
I discovered a very easy and FREE way to fix your radio. Make sure your radio is OFF. Hold down the preset buttons 1 and 6 at the same time. Turn the radio on and your SERIAL NUMBER will appear. 4 numbers first and then 4 more. Write them down (obviously) then call (800) 999-1009. Make sure you have your VIN number handy because they will ask for it. They will ask for your name and approx. milage, and your radio's serial number. They will then give you your radio unlock code--WRITE IT DOWN!
hope this helps.

Key not working

That is FALSE. The radio has nothing to do with charging the keys battery. Some key batterys can be replace others get recharge through the key holder. Your Im pretty sure it can be replace, if not then more than likely you need a new battery or a new key. They are common to fail after several years.
