1991. What is causing the front calipers to lock up?


Take wheels off give callipers a good clean with brake cleaner especially rubber boots around piston. Check for any little holes rips Or tears if any found replace rubbers and remove pistons and clean. If no splits or holes I would then think about changing the fleecy hose on brakes as these can perish and cause the problem you having.
Hope this helps

How to Clean Carpet


Tips to Clean Car Rugs

The carpets of the car suffer immense wear. They support our weight with all kinds of shoes, and suffer constant friction by the movement of our feet, in search of comfort. Therefore, we must give an adequate maintenance so that they are always kept in perfect condition.

Cleaning under car mats

Depending on the make and model of your car, underneath the carpets, you will have a closed cubicle of various materials, mostly plush. We must keep them in good condition, as they are the ones that ensure a good fixation to car mats.
At least once a week, remove the rubber mats, folding them towards the center to avoid spreading the dirt. Remove and clean the bottom carpet with a vacuum cleaner, rubbing the brush vigorously. You can do a more thorough cleaning, sprinkling baking soda and let it act at night, to suck in the morning. This cleaning will not only remove pebbles and other dirt that could affect the carpet's rubber mats, it will also reinvigorate the texture of the interior carpet, leaving it more fluffy and fit to secure the rubber, either thanks to its rough texture of the face Inferior, or by strips of velcro that you can adhere with universal glue. Thus, carpets will never slip.

Cleaning the car's rubber carpet

Once the rubber carpet is removed from your car, shake it to remove any dirt. To clean it, nothing is better than simple warm water with detergent for dishes concentrated. This will leave them clean and shiny, well moisturized. After brushing, rinse with hot or warm water and let dry, always hanging in the shade, as the sun and excessive heat can dry and alter them.

After cleaning and drying, check the rubber mat to analyze the damage and bad sectors. This not only responds to an aesthetic question of the car, but a damaged carpet could cut, move, settle behind the pedals preventing its proper operation; This is potentially a great danger for the driver and the rest of the occupants of the car.

If you notice that the rubber mat has damage, you should repair it immediately. With the carpet totally dry and cold, measure a piece of sturdy fabric (can be jean or denim, or other similar fabric) and trim, exceeding the total crack size or damage. Apply two-component glue or contact cement on the fabric, in a thin layer, and do the same around the broken area of your car's rubber mat, for the reverse. Let the glue bake until it has a bite but does not stick to your fingers, and place the clipping cloth, making some pressure.

This technique will be applicable for breaks in the center or in the contours of the carpet, where pieces will not be missing. If there are missing debris, you can replace them with rubber scraps (broken or punctured hot water bags are ideal for these jobs). Finally, you can take advantage of the time to attach velcro straps (the rough part or hooks), to leave the carpet clean, firm and fixed in place.

I want to change the valve gasket. I see 2 bolt on the top of it can i do it for myself. im wondering maybe there is some parts attach to it. mitsubishi galant 79 model.


Hi,
That two bolts is the one holding the valve cover and the air filter housing.
No worries, just remove the bolts, and remove the old gasket around the cover.
Upon installing new rubber gasket, make sure it is clean. Put a silicone sealant around the canal, where the new rubber gasket would be placed, not too much sealant.
Put the new gasket, and now you can put back everything as you have removed it.
Hope that seals everything!
Thanks for using Fixya!

How too install rear solid window on a 1994 vw jetta


As with any windshield you'll need a special tool called a nylon string.
  • First clean the whole glass with de-natured alcohol and clean your hands too, this cleans any oil residue which can cause leaks in the future.
  • Install the new rubber gasket on the glass.
  • Assuming the metal body part is clean too wrap the nylon string around the rubber gasket outer groove (metal contact part) at least 2 times around and still have 2ft extra when they meet up in the middle.
  • Keep the excess string inside part of glass and let it hang for now but should be x-crossing in the middle.
  • A water and dish washing soap solution should be used both on the rubber gasket and the metal part of body where it contacts. This will ensure of slippery installation.
  • Place glass with gasket on whole with the part where the excess string is at and place it on it's mating groove to secure the starting point of work.
  • While second helper pushing lightly on glass from outside, start pulling the string toward you at the same time while helper helps guide the glass by pushing the area where ever the string pulled out is.
  • Pulling of the string towards you causes the rubber gasket lip to easily move so the body part will land on the rubber groove.
Usually it only take 5mins to do this with a helper. If you have no idea what I'm talking about call a glass company and let your insurance take care of it. It's about $250 for replacing.

Loud humming sound coming from the front of my car


In my case it was a sticky calliper and replaced it.
My wife was noticing it and at first I was not hearing it cause I didnot test drive far enough
Just feel the wheels after some driving, if calliper sticks it is red hot and you can actually smell the heat.
I found that when I removed calliper that I could still apply braking power to other wheels, that's how sticky it was(did not want to come out easy and therefor especially not back off) decided to replace calliper (expensive but life time warranty) to keep life simple. I like the design, very easy to work on.
Allways carefull with the rubber hose (they can cause stickyness as well due to some obstruction inside if handled roughly
