What is happening is the pasint isn't sticking to the primer. This is a known issue. Check for reaclls on your particular vehicle and if not, have your dealer contact chevy. I was able to negotiate a 50/50 split on repainting my 2003 van last year. The recall on my vehicle's time had run out years before, but the problem was fixed.

Under the door is rusting out how to fix


Rust is like cancer - there really is no fix. You can cut out all of the affected area and try welding another piece in there but it will come back and is a temp fix. Best way to repair is to replace entire panel with a new, primed, painted one.

There is a paint on rust converter . You paint it on the rust and it turns it back into metal . After that i would spray the rubberized under coating to protect it.

My 2006 F-150 FX4 Crew Cab has rust forming on bottom of 2nd doors both sides. Will Fords EXP plan cover this issue.


Hello, The rust needs to be through and through and they will cover it. So if the rust is only on the inside you can ask but it is up to the Dealer to decide. If the rust is on the inside and starting to appear on the outside, it is a through and through condition.

We have a Lincoln which rusted on the trunklid and drivers' door bottom. The Dealer replaced the door and trunklid and painted about 80% of the car including surface (one-sided) rust on the rocker panels. Everything blended in and the car was almost 7 years old. All Warranty coverage.

94 Jeep Wrangler back shelf rusting


Wire brush the area off and vacuum up any debris. You can use "rust killer" on the rusted surfaces and then use fiberglass mat to repair any holes. Overlap holes by at least 5" wherever possible. You can leave this unfinished or use spray bedliner paint to further seal the deck. i also recommend you go underneath and remove any loose rust and spray afterward with rubberized undercoating or rust will continue to form there. When using fiberglass on flat surfaces you can lay mat down dry and just pour resin on it and smooth it out so resin penetrates and you don't have lumps.

It depends.. I use wd40 on my car a lot - to slow down decay :-) Also buying those non-toxic oil from Canadian tire - in green spray can - forgot the name... Try to use rust converter ( spray), then paint over using spray paint ( use some plastic steel if needed for patching before spraying paint). My car have many spots everywhere on all edges - all doors/hood. :-) I wait for dry summer days to repair it.

Good luck
Olga.

Exterior rear door handle on Honda Accord 2001


To Remove Door Panel on 2001 Honda Accord:

A: To remove the plastic piece with the door lock button and door handle connected to it:

1- Remove the screw in the middle located behind a plastic cover button
2- Push (slide) the whole assembly Forward (toward front of car)
Besides the screw, it is held in place by 3 hooks on the backside that hook into holes in the metal door frame
3- Now unhook handle from small metal bar going through door by pushing (toward door) plastic clip (blue?) off of the bar, then the bar will come out of the clip hole, thus releasing the handle.
4- Depress little grey button /bar (purple painted on it)on elec. connector to seperate connector, thus releasing door lock switch

Now the whole assembly (metal handle, door lock switch, and plastic piece) will come off door panel

B: The door is held on by 2-screws, 7-plastic snaps/plugs, and 1-plastic plug.

The screws are located: bottom of hand hold and the other behind the handle, both covered by little covers that have to be pryed off to access the screws.(hint: the screw with the built in spacer goes behind the handle when you are trying to reinstall)
The 7-plastic snaps: 3 across bottom and 2 on each side. Not visible, they are mounted to the inside of the panel.
The 1-plastic plug is visible at the upper front of the panel and is the same color as the surrounding trim


C: Take off the big plastic triangle piece above the door panel and behind the mirror. Pull/pry off. It has 2 snaps holding it on. one near bottom and one near the front.

D: Light lens prys off from bottom. Unscrew (1/4 turn) the light assembly with bulb still intact from backside of panel

E: Remove the Hand-Hold/window switch assembly:
