2006 passat 2.0T, 44000 miles, problem radiator related and in the morning when I started car, about a minute later got engine coolant level light came on.so i parked car in driveway but after 30 mi


plastic radiator tanks crack and fail with age and a radiator that is 11 years old is a candidate for failure
Unless there is a really bad failure ( bottom tank blown off under pressure ) the top tap will only leak under pressure and it is normally around the radiator hose section or along the area where the metal tabs attach it to the cores
I would suggest that the shop is reasonably accurate in their diagnosis ( would show up under a pressure test of the cooling system) so a new radiator would be in order

Tail lights do not work on a 2000 lexus rx 300 bulbs are fine, all other lights work fine


You may have a fried fuse. Look in your owners manual to find out which fuse it is in the fuse box diagram. If that is the problem make sure to use the same amperage fuse to replace the burned one with. I fried fuse is usually a sign that you have a short somewhere. But they can also fry for other reasons such as excess moisture somewhere. Sometimes they just burn from age and fatigue. It may solve it to just replace the fuse, but if there really is a short, the new fuse will fry too.

How do I remove halogen low beam head light to replace it?

Never turn on the headlights with the bulb removed.
  1. Before servicing the vehicle, refer to the precautions in the beginning of this section. NOTE: Make sure that the headlight switch and the ignition switch are in the OFF position.
  2. Remove the pin-type retainers, screws and the air deflector from the radiator.

Engine heats up to 200 then won't start.


Remove the thermostat, check in pan of water for opening temperature, replace IF it does not respond to various water temperatures...follow the radiator hose from the top to the top of the block...the little cast iron BULB contains the Thermostat, drain radiator first...drain plug found on bottom of radiator, take off radiator cap to equal the pressure which will enable it to drain...if cloudy/dirty, replace with new solution/water..

Lexus 400 sc thermostat installation


Follow the radiator hose from where it attaches to the radiator, the bulb it is attached to contains the thermostat. put the old one in a pan of boiling water to see if it opens and closes if not replace, be sure to clean the surface that this metal bulb rests one both bottom and top and use a good sealer when re installing with a NEW gasket, take care in NOT tightening the two bolts too tight as that is light cast iron or aluminum

How to replace the high beam bulb on a 98 GMC Suburban. What needs to be removed to get to it?


Headlamp Bulb: Service and Repair
REMOVAL PROCEDURE
1. Make sure the headlamp switch is in the OFF position.
CAUTION: Halogen bulbs contain gas under pressure. Handling a bulb improperly could cause it to shatter into flying glass fragments.
To help avoid personal injury:
- Turn off the lamp switch and allow the bulb to cool before changing the bulb. Leave the lamp switch off until the bulb change is
complete
- Always wear eye protection when changing a halogen bulb.
- Handle the bulb only by its base. Avoid touching the glass.
- Do not drop or scratch the bulb.
- Keep dirt and moisture off the bulb.
- Place the used bulb in the new bulb's carton and dispose of it properly.
- Keep halogen bulbs out of the reach of children
NOTE
: Avoid touching the bulb or letting the bulb come in contact with anything damp. Oil from your skin or moisture on the bulb can cause
the bulb to explode when the bulb is turned on. It either comes in contact with the bulb, clean the bulb with alcohol or a suitable degreaser and
wipe the bulb dry.
2. Remove the bulbs from the headlamp capsules by reaching from the engine compartment and by twisting the bulb counterclockwise.
3. Remove the 2 long screws from the top of the radiator support.
4. Pull forward the headlamp assembly (3).
5. Disconnect the electrical connector (2) from the burned out bulb assembly (1).
INSTALLATION PROCEDURE
IMPORTANT
:
- Replace a high beam bulb with another high beam bulb. The high beam bulb has a red gasket.
- Replace a low beam bulb with another low beam bulb. The low beam bulb has a gray tip and a yellow gasket at the base.
1. Install the new bulb assembly (1) into the headlamp assembly (3).
Twist clockwise the bulb assembly.
2. Seat the bulb assembly with the connector facing down.
3. Connect the electrical connector (2) to the bulb assembly.
4. Install the headlamp assembly.
5. Install the 2 long screws through the top of the radiator support.
6. Tighten the screws.

Replace headlight bulb in 2000 dodge durango sxt 4.7l


There are 3 machine bolts that hold the big white part of the head light to the truck. These bolts are black and I think 7/16 but not completely sure, maybe 12mm or so. You'll need sockets, ratchet and a really long extension. Two regular extensions won't reach the bottom one. You get to all three of them from the front of the truck straight in. Once those are out, the head light assembly pulls forward and can dangle from about 10-12 inches of extra wire. This is attached to the bulb harness. 1/3 of a turn and the wire and bulb come out of the head light. Pop the new bulb back in WITH GLOVES, do not touch those halogens. And put it back together. You can use peanut butter in a deep well or regular socket to hold the screws in to get them started, or the rag thing. 
It took me 14,607 hours to find these bolts and about 10 minutes to do the job! Hope it helps out!
