Before you remove the switch check that it is striking the break petal bracket first some model have a plastic stop that break and leave a hole if that the case then you can replace or use a 1/4x20x1/2"pan head bolt and nut in it place.pull back the master cinder so that you have room to install it. if there no hole then you must loosen the lock nut first

Yes those are bolts. You remove those from the back side. This takes a while sometimes. If you can't get them by reverse alone, try hitting them with impact in forward for a hit or two to brake it loose a little. If the new hub comes with new bolts, don't be afarid to brake them. PS, after those bolts are removed, don't forget to remove the nut on the axle shaft. You may also need to use an air hammer to help remove old hub after bolts are removed.

Transmission shift indicator light on center console.
First
make sure the fuse is good.
If the fuse is good then remove the screws holding the center console cover. You will need a long and short phillip screwdriver. Look for screws in the cup holder, under the handbrake handle and where the console runs under the dash. You may have to move seats forward/backward to reach the screws. When you attempt to raise the console cover you will notice you overlook a screws. Remove them also. You may be able to reach the bulb without removing the gear shift handle. DO NOT TOUCH any other electronics you see. The AIRBAG ACTUATOR is located here also. Replace bulb. Test before reassembly. Good Saturday morning project.

SOURCE: how to remove distributor on 1994 nissan pathfinder

Hi there:
Check this removal procedure (See Figures 1 through 5)

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Unfasten the retaining clips (only remove the coil wire if necessary) and lift the distributor cap straight off. It will be easier to install the distributor if the spark plug wiring is left connected to the cap. If the plug wires must be removed from the cap, mark their positions to aid in installation.
  3. Remove the dust cover and mark the position of the rotor relative to the distributor body; then mark the position of the distributor body relative to the engine block.
  4. Detach the harness assembly connector.
  5. Remove the pinch-bolt and lift the distributor straight out, away from the engine. The rotor and body are marked so that they can be returned to the position from which they were removed. Do not turn or disturb the engine (unless absolutely necessary) after the distributor assembly has been removed.

INSTALLATIONTiming Not Disturbed

  1. Insert the distributor in the block and align ALL matchmarks made during removal.
  2. Engage the distributor driven gear with the distributor drive.
  3. Install the distributor clamp and secure it with the pinch-bolt.
  4. Install the distributor cap and fasten the harness electrical connector.
  5. If necessary, install the spark plug wires and coil wire.
  6. Start the engine. Check the timing and adjust it if necessary.

Timing Disturbed
  1. It is necessary to place the No. 1 cylinder in the firing position to correctly install the distributor. To locate this position, the ignition timing marks on the crankshaft front pulley can be used.
  2. Remove the No. 1 cylinder spark plug. Turn the crankshaft until the piston in the No. 1 cylinder is moving up on the compression stroke. This can be determined by placing your thumb over the spark plug hole and feeling the air being forced out of the cylinder. Stop turning the crankshaft when the timing marks indicate TDC or 0 .
  3. Oil the distributor housing lightly where the distributor bears on the cylinder block.
  4. Install the distributor so that the rotor, which is mounted on the shaft, points toward the No. 1 spark plug terminal tower position when the cap is installed. Of course, you won't be able to see the direction in which the rotor is pointing if the cap is installed, so lay the cap on the top of the distributor and make a mark on the side of the distributor housing just below the No. 1 spark plug terminal. Make sure that the rotor points toward that mark when you install the distributor.

On the VG30i and VG30E engines, align the mark on the distributor shaft with the protruding mark on the housing.

  1. When the distributor shaft has reached the bottom of the hole, gently move the rotor back and forth slightly until the driving lug on the end of the shaft enter the slots cut in the end of the oil pump shaft and the distributor assembly slides down into place.

On the VG30i and VG30E engines, the distributor rotor tip should be in the 11 o'clock position.

  1. Fasten the distributor hold-down bolt.
  2. Install the spark plug into the No. 1 spark plug hole.
  3. Install the distributor cap and engage the harness electrical connector.
  4. If necessary, attach the spark plug wires and coil wire.
  5. Start the engine. Check the timing and adjust it if necessary.

How do i change the tail light on my 1998 nissan sentra?


the actual tail lamp lens of the light bulb inside the lens?

for the actual light bulb, open the trunk at the back of the lens there will be a grey circle connector, 1 is the turn light, 1 is the tail light, simply rotate that connector opposite of the position that says "lock" written on the circle connector, that pulls out and then you can turn the bulb and replace that.

for the actual lens, you will need a 8mm socket and possibly a pry bar or a hammer. there are 3 8 mm bolts at the back of each lens, find them, they should be at each corner of the light, take those out, unclip the bulb harnesses mentioned above, unclip any connectors, should be 1 white one, then hammer the ends of the bolts you removed, this loosens the seal around the tail light. simply pull the tail light straight out, if it wont come out varify you removed all bolts and connestions then proceed to use the pry bar or the end of a hammer to pull the light out which will pull out towards the outside of the car not into the trunk. takes about 15 mins to do very easy.

Need 1990 nissan sentra torque settings and valve clearence


heinrichkemp: The engine in your car is a GA16i
I venture you are asking about the head bolts when you refer to torque settings. The head bolts used on this motor are torque to yield (streach bolts) If you are reusing them, you need to check them to insure they are not stretched beyond limits.
The way you measure the bolt is with a micrometer.
Measuring close to the end where the bolt starts to thread in, about 10-12 threads up, take a reading. Now, go to the other end of the bolt where the threads end and measure about 10 threads in.
There should not be more than a .009 inch difference (.228mm). If there is, discard the bold and get a new one.

You must use a sequence to tighten the bolts, below is the sequence.
11
13 9 3 1 6 8

14 7 5 2 4 10
12 15

torque 11,12,13,14 & 15 to 8.3 Nm (6.1 ft lbs)
Torque the main head bolts by the numbered sequence to
29Nm (22 ft lbs) first pull
64Nm (47 ft lbs) second pull
Loosten all the bolts completely
Tighten the to 29Nm (22 ft lbs) first pull
Tighten bolt # 1 clockwise 85 degrees
Tighten bolts #2- 10 65 degrees
Nissan noted that if you do not have a torque angel meter, you can use a regular torque wrench and torque all the bolts to 69Nm (51 ft lbs)
The valves on this engine have hydraulic lifters, consequently require no adjustment.
