Come alongs are attached at one end to a fixture ( tree ,back of a vehicle etc
the cable is thread through the jaws of the comalong and the back and forward action of the lever pulls it in and consequently anything that the other end of the cable is attached to is pulled along ( out of the bog etc)
that is why the cable has one end with a "eye" and the other end is plain and straight so that it goes through the machine

Can you tell me how to install my release cable & handle on town & country1995


Do you mean bonnet release? If so loosen cable/wire by bonnet catch make sure it's free of any cable ties and clips, and is loose. Also inside vehicle try to remove any type of covering behind bonnet lever/handle, then undo any clips pins or nuts that hold handle in place. If you securely attach some wire or strong string to the end of the cable under the bonnet, and carefully pull it into the vehicle, disconnect old cable attach new, then pull it back into the engine compartment. Your cable should be in place ready for reattaching the lever, and bonnet catch.

Need to replace radio antenna on a 99 isuzu rodeo


I just replaced the antenna on our 02 rodeo. No need to remove radio or anything in dash. This is how I did it.
First you will need access to back of fender, enough room for your hand. Open hood and remove 3 bolts running along top of fender, open passenger door and remove top bolt holding fender. Gently pry top of fender away from vehicle. Place object in gap to hold fender ( I used the head of a rubber mallet). Reach inside fender and disconnect old antenna, follow cable through wall into passenger compartment. Gently pull cable from behind carpet and unplug old antenna from coupler. Connect new antenna to fender ( replacement antenna I ordered was slightly smaller than opening so I had to add washer). Run new antenna cable through wall and plug into coupler. Re-attach fender

Slack parking brake cable. is it adjustable?


Look under the left side of the vehicle along the frame rail. Follow the cable from the rear wheel toward the front. There should be a device attached to the cable. Tightening the bolt will remove slack from the cable

How to replace the window power motor?i removed all the covering of the door. I see the window motor but have no idea how to take it out.


It's possible you need a regulator along with the motor; if you hear a "crunchy" sound and the window moves up and down when you push the switch the regulator has failed. To remove the motor, you'll need to remove the regulator assembly, which the motor is attached to. There should be several 10mm head bolts which hold the regulator in place along the 4 corners of the inner door. Also, there are 3 bolts that attach to motor to the inner door sheet metal. You need to remove the 2 bolts that attach to the bottom of the window as well, while keeping the window secured to avoid it falling. Push it all the way up and use several strips of masking tape starting from the outside to the inside over the door frame to keep it in place.

My husband is not mechanically savvy. That being


It isn't too difficult just do one at a time. Disconnect from your battery and then disconnect other end where it attaches to engine. There may be brackets along it's length that will have to be removed that secure it make sure to reinstall these on the new cables. I would suggest though before attaching your actual ends to your battery go ahead and replace bothe cables so you don't accidently arc your positive cable anywhere. It's just a safety precaution. Remove your negative battery connection before starting procedure.

Replacing clutch gable


First you must get under the engine to unscrew the extremity of he cable fixed to the clutch lever. Once you are able to release this extremity of the cable, its done at one end and you must go inside your car. The best is to completely remove the driver seat. If you don't want to do it, at least, push it back to the maximum to have the most space you can under the driving wheel. It is better to get a good light (but small) to see (try to) what you are doing in this small space. The first thing to do once you are installed is to pull hard on the cable to get some loose inside. The isolation bushing should get out of its place. Once you think you have got enough loose (6 inches), have a look to the extremity of the clutch pedal, where the cable is fixed. With a long (one foot) flat screw driver, you have to push the extremity of the cable, really the cable, to loosen it from the extremity braket. Once done, with the same screw driver, you have to push the braket towards the front and the top. If you do it well, the bracket should jump from its place on the pedal. At this point, your cable is no longer attach to the clutch pedal. Then you noticed for sure that the extremity of the cable gaine is attached to a kind of plate which is welded to the two pedal boxes apart. The final thing to do is to push on a piece of black metal, on top of the plate, that prevents the cable sheath to be removed (it is hard to see but easy to do). Once done, you can remove the cable by pulling the cable sheath down and then pulling towards yourself. There are two bushing along the engine (or transmission) that guide the clutch cable from the pedal to the clutch. Before pulling everything off, make sure to remove those from their place.
