How to craft boots


I think a shoe smith might be better to answer this question. I would think you would need several types of leather, you know...for the soles, uppers, and laces. And tacks and hammers and adhesives. and a pattern would probably help.

Choosing the right tire for winter


when choosing the right tire for winter travel you want to make sure the rubber isnt to stiff. a soft rubber tire will grab the road easier. if you prefer studs than go that route, but if you prefer studless then make sure the tire is siped for winter and snow or ice traction, now i drive a full size dodge with a lift kit and huge tires up here in n. idaho where the snow gets real deep. i dont usually have to much trouble because my tires are softer rubber and thats all i use. cars with less weight should choose an inexpensive tire that will get the job done and will keep you safe but wont break your bank. tire shops will always try to get you to buy the most costly tires when for $500 less you can get practically the same tread design with studs and everything. and generally the cheaper versions will last the same amount of time. so dont be fooled times are tough right now and some folks will do whatever it takes to get your money. ask a lot of questions. tires that are to wide will begin to wear out through the center quicker than the right width for you car or truck

I have a 2001 Pontiac Sunfire and every time it rains or snow in the cold weather all the doors freeze shut what can i use to stop this


Get a can of silicone spray from your local parts store. Spray a rag liberally and wipe down all of the rubber gaskets that seal the doors to the car. The silicone spray will keep ice from freezing the seals to the door.

Better Starting Grip in Icy Conditions.
A special Winter Flex Compound, specially formulated to maintain its grip under the most extreme cold-weather conditions, including snow and ice, to help deliver better starting grip and shorter stopping distances.

Better Traction In All Winter Conditions
Cross Z-Sipes Technology uses a specially designed curve that locks the sipes in place, helping to provide improved grip on snow and ice. And because the sipes are full-depth, their grip lasts winter after winter.

Looking to replace all season tires, what are my best options when I live in the mountains? occassional big dumps of snow but with global warming not cold enough to warrant snow tires. most of my driving...


If you have too much money, I will take some off your hands. All season tires are all season tires. If you want snow tires get a new set of rims then keep snow tires in your garage for the winter and all season tires for the rest of the year. If you cant drive in the snow cant help you with that.

Front end clunking noise going over small bumps


It could be a couple of things.
Loose or worn out strut - (jack up car, remove tire and shake the strut really hard to see if it's loose. Check for signs of leaking or damage to strut)
Missing rubber isolator under front spring (visually inspect the suspension while tire is off).
Broken sway bar mount or missing rubber in the mount on the frame. (Lay under the front and look for where the sway bar mounts to the frame. Make sure everything is tight and the rubber is still in it.

How to replace rear shocks on 96 bmw 328i


Inside the car carefully pry up the speaker covers off the rear parcel shelf and undo the two screws that secure the speaker assembly onto the shelf. Release the clip and carefully from inside the boot pull the speakers away and disconnect the speaker connections
Open the boot and remove the carpet from the rear "wall" by unscrewing the 4 retaining "nuts" at first by hand and then using a phillips screwdriver.
bootcarpet.jpg

Lift this out and lift out the floor carpet. Carefully pull the side carpets away from the boot interior. They are held in 3 places : on one of the retaining bolts by the rear carpet, by a metal ledge at the top near the rear lights and by the ledges on the plastic parts in the boot.

Jack up the car and chock the front wheels so it can't roll anywhere. Also put something underneath the wheels so they cannot drop down when you undo the shock mounts.
reartower.jpg
Using a 13mm socket undo the two top shock mounts ONLY once you have supported the wheels so that you dont put stress on the suspension arms. Pry off the rubber dust cover.
shocklwrbolt.jpg
Undo the lower shock retaining bolt and carefully lift the entire shock away from the car.
oldcompleteshock.jpg
The old knackered shock and shock mount!
undotopmount.jpg
You need to recover the lower cup, upper cup and bump-stop from the old shock. To do this you need to remove the top mount from the old shock. If you look at the top of the piston it has a flat section to it. Get a set of mole grips and clamp them onto the flat section, do this as tight as you can so that you dont round it and using and adjustable spanner undo the piston retaining nut whilst holding the piston shaft using the molegrips.
keepthesebits.jpg
You need to recover 3 pieces from the piston shaft. 1- the bump stop, 2 - lower cup, 3 upper cup. Using the new shock mount as a template cut out a gasket from cardboard (the box the mount came in is ideal) to go between the upper shock mount and the suspension tower. Incidently according to the haynes manual this is made of rubber but mine was made of card! under no circumstances put the upper shock mount directly into the suspension tower.
newshock2.jpg
Put the 3 pieces onto the new shock and tighten the piston nut to secure the shock mount and put your new gasket onto the upper mount.
reartowernoshock.jpg
Use the opportunity to clean the suspension turret - do the top and the underneath making sure it's all clean and dry.
Put the new complete assembled shock into the suspension tower and either get someone to do up the top bolts a few turns or rest the bottom of the shock in the inner circumference of the wheel and lift it into position by lifting it up using the piston nut and then do the bolts up a few turns.
Bolt the bottom shock bolts back into place after putting some nut-lock on the threads and tighten them up securely, then tighten up the top mount securing bolts and put on the rubber dust cap.
bootcarpet.jpg
Put the side carpets back in making sure the speaker cables aren't trapped behind, putting in the end nearest the tail lights first making sure it's behind the retaining ledge both at the top and the end. Then do the centre section and finally over the bolt at the rear of the boot. Put the rear carpet back in and do up the retaining nuts. Reconnect the speakers and engage the lip and push the speaker up until the clip clips into place and do up the securing screws and clip the speaker cover back on.

Ford Windstar - Codes PO171 & PO174


Problem is most likely the gaskets and isolator bolts between upper and lower intake manifolds.
Look at the rubber grommets on the bolts that bolt the upper intake to the lower. If they rubber grommets are black then this is most likely the concern. They have a new style gasket and bolts for this and the ford part number are XF2Z-9H486-AA for the gaskets and 3F2Z-9S479-AA for bolts (1 pack of 8 bolts).
