Received notice in March that our Mazda6 needed the Air bags replaced. After many calls to our local dealer...K.G.Motors Armidale Nsw, we are repeatedly informed that they are still waiting on parts.


Your car probably has one of the defective airbags that caused the largest recall of vehicles in history. Manufacturers are required to notify owners of the recall as soon as practical after they are placed on notice. However, in this case, the problem with the airbags affects cars worldwide, and the manufacturer of the airbags is working as fast as possible to manufacture replacements. Dealers in their letters to owners should have stated that there may be a rather lengthy delay in the actual replacement of the airbag due to the logistic issue with replacement parts. The dealer will send you another letter when parts are available and schedule a time for the replacement.

Where is the heater control valve for a 2002 Mitsubishi Galant


The part you need is a dealer stocking part. There is an electric motor that turns heater core on and off. It's located under the dash to the left of the glove box. Some disassembly required. The part will cost about $120 to $180. part number is #MR958603. I saved money by purchasing it on line. It is a stocking part at most Mitsubishi dealers. Once you pull the glove box out and remove the bottom half of the dash all the way across, you should be able to gain access to the motor to replace it. Caution: if you do not put everything back in correctly and tie/tape it all back down carefully in the correct places you will have lots of under the dash noises when you are done. I do not think there is much chance for a recall on a car that is so old. It is not uncommon for an 8 year old part fail. Some Galant owners were able to get there cars repainted when the clear coat came off. But again, it is too late for the rest of us.

Where is the heater shut off valve located on a 2002 Mitsubishi Galant


The part you need is a dealer stocking part. There is an electric motor that turns heater core on and off. It's located under the dash to the left of the glove box. If you unhook the top of the glove box (push it to one side and gently pull it down) you should see it to the left of the blower motor housing. Some disassembly required.

How do you take the dash off of a chevy cavalier


-well you start by removing the covers at each end of the panel. you will see them when you open the doors, they will just pull off.
-then you will remove the defrost grill in the top center of the dash.
-there wil be two 7 mm bolts behind the grill you will need to remove
-each end of dash will have a 7 mm bolt
-open glove box and you will find three black 7mm
-hidden up left in the glove box a square cutout you will find two silver or gold 7mm bolts that will have to be removed. (these two remove the airbag cover.
-once all the screws are removed then just pull the upper dash panel upwards to remove it (be careful of the airbag itself not to puncture it)
-with the top half of the dash off you will find 4 more 7mm bolts holding the facia part of the dash.
-remove these and pull the dash towards you around the heater and radio the dash is clipped in. be careful not to crack the panel.

-reverse procedure to put it back together.

Cabin air filter on a 2006 subaru outback limited


The cabin air filter is behind the glove box. The first thing you need to do is empty the glove box. (2) you need to remove the side panel that runs along the side of the shifter, it is a long panel and has on clip near the firewall, the clip will have a phillips head on it, just back it out and remove this panel. Then remove all the bolts (10MM) holding the glove box on, The glove box is will stay up because it has two hings that run into the sides of dash. All you need to do is squeeze the glove box untill it pops out and the glove box will be out. There is no need to unhook the wiring for the light bulb just let the glove box hang on the floor. Now you will see a black cover that is held on by 4 small metal clips, remove these and pull the cabin air filter out. when you reinstall the new one, make sure you put it in with the air flow arrows pointed in the right direction or else you will cause blockage. reinstall and enjoy your new heppa filter
