SOURCE: how to replace the exterior door handle,both

remove seat belt bolts and pull it out. the rest is just held in with tabs.

..or if you want Forget taking the door apart - just remove the two bolts holding the latch assembly to the door - Pull the latch assembly out far enough to see the pin that goes through the broken handle - drive the pin out far enough to remove the handle - insert new handle that you just removed from the replacement latch assembly - drive pin back in - Throw the rest of the replacement kit away since all that was broken was a tab on the handle you just replaced.

hope this helps a lot. :)

SOURCE: Hearing ticking noise from my 1993 isuzu rodeo.

I had same problem with 99 Isuzu Rodeo LS 3.2 V6. Dealer couldn't find it and many, many other owners experienced same thing. finally found a post where a mechanic (non dealer) changed the idle air control valve. so i tried it, and after 3 years of dealing with the problem, it worked!!! part costs about $40 and very, very easy to change yourself. for the 99, its located in front of engine, so easy access. Good Luck

I have a 1989 Allante. Problem getting a key programed/problem starting/problem locking doors. I had several locksmiths go thru All 13 codes with no success. Any way to diconnect the alarm/theft system...

Hello: You have a VATS security system in your car. There is NOT any programmer9ng procedure' The key has a pellet resistor. The ignition lock cylinder reads this value and sends it to the VATS module. What happens is the wires on the lock cylinder break, then the car will not start. There are 15 different resistor values. On your computer if you will type in how to by-pass the Vats system you will get send to a web page that will tell you step by step how to do it. I have an original 1989 Cadillac Service Manual. If you want to call me at 901 4326105 I may can help you with the door lock problem.

I need to replace the a/c unit on my 1989 suburban 350 w/rear air

Switch or plug...plug must go where the harness can be connected to it (the same as it is on the old one)
If you need step by step directions get an inexpensive manual to walk you through it. Put A/C oil on any O rings to prevent them from rolling over.Tighten any "flange" type connections equally on both sides. After installing, system must be evacuated with a pump, to remove air & moisture.
This MUST be done before charging.
good luck
