Question about Cars & Trucks

Pretty sure there should be a washer beneath the fitting as well as on top. I see the one on top. There should also be a copper washer below the fitting.

I had a similar problem on my 04 expedition. I just bought it and the headlights were aiming too far down. A rather larger gap was noticeable between the headlight and the hood. The so called adjustment bolt did nothing. I removed the headlights and found 2 issues. On the adjustment bolt there is a washer. Make sure when you re-install the headlight the washer sets on top of the plastic slot and is visible when looking down behind the headlight. Without the washer being in the correct location it will not tighten the headlight in place.
Second I found the adjustment bolt adjusted nothing. It merely tightened the headlight in place. What I had to do was to loosen this bolt and physically move the headlight into place and the re-tighten the bolt. Hence the slot is the adjustment. Turning the bolt CW or CCW did not move the headlight.
I tried several things trying to figure why the lights would not move until I realized I could move the light with my hands and tightened them in place using the adjustment bolt.
This may not be your issue but I found the owners manual instructions to be useless.

bolts should be easily removed after breaking them loose. If someone replaced them and used nuts on the backside, it may present a problem & require cutting the heads off. Sometimes you can snake a distributor wrench above to grab nut but on most jeeps this is difficult because there isn't enough clearance. Really soak them down with good solvent at least twice several hours before attempting to remove.

If you are replacing the shocks anyway, you may be able to snap a vice grip on the shaft so that it won't spin.
Sometimes you can use a pipe wrench too.
If the vehicle is supported on the frame, it will expose more of the shaft.

Hi the top is not a bolt its a pin
to remove the caliper remove the lower bolt then lift the caliper up till it clears the brake pads and slide the caliper off the pin
when you reinstall lube the top pin and the bottom slide pin

CAUTION Observe all applicable safety precautions when working around fuel. Whenever servicing the fuel system, always work in a well ventilated area. Do NOT allow fuel spray or vapors to come in contact with a spark or open flame. Keep a dry chemical fire extinguisher near the work area. Always keep fuel in a container specifically designed for fuel storage; also, always properly seal fuel containers to avoid the possibility of fire or explosion.
There are two types of fittings used on fuel filter connections. The banjo fitting or union bolt type uses a bolt and two washers to prevent leakage between an eyelet and the filter. The flare fitting type uses no washers or bolts. It uses a thread interference pattern to make a tight connection.

CAUTION To avoid personal injury, remember that the fuel system is under pressure. Release pressure slowly and contain spillage. Wear eye protection and observe no smoking/no open flame precautions. Have a dry powder fire extinguisher within arm's reach at all times.

The recommended change interval for the fuel filter on all models is 60,000 miles under normal service. Severe service will require more frequent changing of the fuel filter.
The filter is located in the passengers side of the engine compartment.
CAUTION Before disconnecting any fuel lines, be sure to open the gas tank filler cap to relieve any pressure in the system and wrap a shop towel around the fuel line fitting before opening. Observe all fuel handling precautions.
