Hello i want to grease the bushes on my 2006 Sebring to stop it from squeaking but I do no no where to look to find bushes . Wanted something to show how to do it and need to see what I am looking for


are you sure its the bushings making the noise? first off you dont grease the bushings. a lot of the squeaking i have seen comes from the ball joints. that generally means they need to be replaced. you need to make a real inspection of the front suspension. none of the parts that come on these cars have grease fittings. usually the upper strut bushings are the first to go. like i said, you need to make an inspection. you may have parts that are failing. this can be dangerous if one fails. there are bushings, 2 each, on both the upper and lower control arms. the lowers are where the arm attaches to the frame. the uppers are attached to the upper strut mount. generally you would replace the complete control arm assemblys

Remove citroen c3 rear door panel


Check out how the door panels are attached to the car. Most panels use screws and bolts but others have snap-in fittings. Gather all the tools you need for removing the door panels. If the panel is attached with screws and bolts, you need a screwdriver or ratchet and socket. Car door panels with snap-in fittings are easily removed with a flathead screwdriver.
Locate where the screws and bolts are before starting. These are usually found in the arm rest area, along the bottom or sometimes near the door lights.
Roll down the car door window. Begin removing all screws and bolts that hold the door panel onto the car. If your car has snap-in fittings, pry gently on the bottom corner of the door panel until the fittings pop out.
Remove the power window control panel if your car has power windows. The control panel should pry out easily, and then you unplug the wiring harness from the back and place it to the side.
Use an L pick and flashlight when locating a manual window crank. Look behind the window crank and slide the pick under the edge of the metal clip that holds the crank in place. Remove the clip and pull the crank off.
Remove the door handle by unscrewing the small screw located in the center. Gently pull the door handle out until you see the back of the handle and unclip the rod from the door handle. This should remove the handle unless the handle and door lock are attached, then you just unclip the rod from the lock and remove them both together.
Unscrew the cap off rear upper corner door panel locks. These don't have a rod attaching them to the handle and unscrew separately from the door handle.
Pop the door panel off after you've removed everything. Gently pry on the bottom edge of the door panel until it releases. Pull out and up to completely remove the door panel.

How to replace control arms on a 93 protege


Raise the front of the vehicle and support it by the frame with jack stands. Remove the front wheels using the air gun and a socket.

  • 2 Place the floor jack under the lower control arm as close to the ball joint as possible. Raise the jack until it begins to lift the control arm. Make sure that the floor jack is positioned where it cannot slip off the control arm.
  • 3 Remove the cotter pin in the upper control arm ball joint using the wire cutters. Remove the nut on the bottom of the upper ball joint using a wrench. Separate the ball joint using the ball joint separator tool. Insert the tool between the spindle and the upper control arm and hit it with a hammer until it comes loose from the spindle.
  • 4 Remove the upper control arm by removing the nuts on the engine side of the arm holding it to the frame. Use a wrench for this, but as the bolts are loosened, keep the alignment shims together that are behind each nut. It will be necessary to replace these on the side they were removed from for the alignment.
  • 5 Lift the upper control arm off and remove the upper ball joint using the ball joint installer kit. This procedure is only necessary if the new control arm does not come with a ball joint, which would be unusual.
  • 6 Place the receiver over the bottom of the ball joint and the smaller pusher cylinder on the topside. Place the large C-clamp from the kit over the cylinders. Use the ½-inch drive air gun and socket to push the ball joint out. Reverse the process to install the ball joint. Install the upper control arm in reverse order of removal.

    Trying to replace the inside door handle of a 1997 gmc suburban


    The door is installed by holding it at a 45 degree angle and lowering the top edge until it meets the window gap. It is snapped down then simply swings into place. Then it is pressed together until the plastic clips sap closed. After that the pieces like door handle, arm rest and speaker and grill cover are installed using screws. This is for both hard plastic and soft door panels. Just reverse this process.
    Start by checking the arm rest. There should be several screws that attach it to the steel inner door panel. Depending on the door handle and if equipped, the speaker and cover.
    Once your sure all that you have checked for all mounting screws then the next step it to pop the door panel off. The panels are attached using plastic clips that are attached to the panel. These clips will have a male type prong that snaps into a female receptacle on the steel inner door panel. Starting at the bottom place a wedge (like a scraper or wonderbar) between the gap of the panel and inner steel door and pry it apart. The best place to start is at the lower outside corner. Once you have a couple popped apart you can use your hand and pop the rest. Do this at the bottom and work your way across and up because the top lip where the panel and window gap meet are held differently. That section needs to be forced up.
    Hope this helps

    This is a pretty easy job.The way i do it is take the two 14mm bolts louse from the strut on the inner fender well,then take the 17mm bolt out of the bottom of the strut on the lower control arm this will make it drop down.Then take the 14mm bolt louse that fastens the ball joint to the spindle take a hammer and hit the upper spindle and it all will come apart.Now you will have the two bolts that holds the upper control arm in place these are 17mm bolts drop the strut down and remove the upper control arm now you can go in with the new one.Hope this helps !!!
