How to remove a broken window mechanism in a Fiat Strata Bakkie

To get to a window mechanism, the inside panel has to be removed. Locate all screws that hold the panel handle and any other part of the panel to the door frame. The sides and bottom of the panel are held in place by panel retainers , which pop out of the door frame. Place a panel tool or flat screw driver along the sides and bottom to pop out the retainers. Once the sides and bottom are free t, the top of the panel should lift up out the track on top. Be careful of any wiring before you remove the panel.

Mercedes benz 300 d cam chain

Fish it out with a metal coat hangar or a strong telescoping mechanics magnet. You can also use a 4 prong claw flexible shaft pick up tool to get it done, they are available at Autozone and other auto parts stores for about $5.00
Use wire to retain chain out of the pan after you snag it, it is called "Mechanics wire" See piture of claw tool below.

2005 Honda Accord - the passenger door lock will not lock or unlock whether I'm using the key handle or the internal power lock buttons. Any ideas?

I suspect you lock linkage rod came off inside the door.Remove the door panel and lock / unlock manual knob as you watch the rod to see if it is moving. Typically a door panel will have a few screws and several push in fasteners holding the panel on the door. Look the panel over closely and remove all screws, including the handle bucket and top left side screws - some vehicles have screws on the edge of the door. Use a large flat blade screwdriver to slide along between the door and panel, twisting at the points where the panel is tight to the door. These push ins will be tight and your local auto parts store has a special tool for removing the push ins - this would be the safest route to go to prevent damaging the push ins. Remove panel and look at the locking mechanism - I think this is where you have the disconnect issue. There is a plastic retainer that the rod goes into. It pushes into the lock mechanism and swings over the arm. Sometimes these retainers break and the arm falls off, so you may need to replace them. Your local parts store mat have these in stock or be able to order them for you - otherwise you'll need to go to either the dealer or a body shop to get the parts. You can get an exact diagram of the interior of your door to show you the specifics of the mechanism at
They charge a fee for the look up and you can print out what you see there for future reference.
I hope this helps and please rate my solution - Happy Thanksgiving!!!

Toyota Camry 1983-1996 Repair Guide Ignition Module - REMOVAL & INSTALLATION

All engines, except the 2S-ELC, have an external igniter.
  1. Turn the ignition key to the OFF position. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Separate the wiring harness connections.
  3. Unbolt the igniter.
  4. Loosen the nut holding the wire lead onto the coil.
  5. Tag and disconnect the wire lead.
  6. Lift the igniter off its mount.

To install:
  1. Mount the igniter to the bracket.
  2. Attach the wire lead to the coil.
  3. Connect the harness.
  4. Connect the negative battery cable. Reset any digital equipment such as radio memory and the clock if necessary.

See Figure 1
The internal igniter is only applicable to 2S-ELC engine Camry models. All other engines are equipped with an external igniter assembly.
Review the complete service procedure before this repair. Note position, color of wire and routing of all internal distributor assembly wiring.
  1. Disconnect the cable from the negative battery terminal.
  2. Remove the number one spark plug. Place a finger over the spark plug hole and rotate the crankshaft clockwise to top dead center. When there is pressure felt on the finger at the spark plug hole, this will be top dead center of the compression stroke on number one cylinder. If not, repeat the procedure. Install the number one spark plug.
  3. Mark the position of the distributor flange in relation to the camshaft housing. Remove the IIA distributor assembly.
  4. Remove the distributor cap with the wires attached, and remove the packing. Mark the position of the rotor relative to the housing and pull the rotor straight up and off the shaft. The distributor cap is held to the housing with three retaining screws.
  5. Remove the ignition coil dust cover.
  6. Remove the two nuts and spring washers and disconnect the four wires from the terminals on the side of the ignition coil. The wires are color coded yellow, blue, brown and red.
  7. Remove the four retaining screws and remove the ignition coil and packing.
  8. Remove the nuts and disconnect the pink, white and black wires from the igniter terminals. Remove the two igniter retaining screws and remove the igniter.

To install:

  2. Install the ignition coil and attach it with the four retaining screws.
  3. Connect the four ignition coil wires to their respective terminals and install the two nuts and spring washers.
  4. Install the coil dust cover and push the rotor onto the shaft.
  5. Place the distributor cap and wires into position. Install and tighten the retaining screws.
  6. Install the distributor assembly and connect the negative battery cable.
  7. Connect a tachometer and timing light to the engine and adjust the ignition timing.

  1. Remove the distributor cap, rotor and di-electric insulator covers. Disconnect the red and yellow wires from the coil and the pink, white and black wires from the igniter.
  2. Remove the igniter. It may be necessary to mark and rotate the distributor to gain access to the igniter retaining screws. The timing should be checked after the distributor is returned to the mark.

To install:
  1. Install the new igniter using the two new retaining screws.
  2. Twist the pick-up coil wires together, install the white wire first then pink and black wires to their original locations. Make sure the wires do not touch the housing generator or advance plate.
  3. Route the red and yellow wires from the igniter so they do not contact moving parts. Connect the red wire to the right coil terminal (with the brown wire) and the yellow wire to the left terminal (with the blue wire). Replace the covers, rotor and cap.
