How do i remove drivers side visor from 2003 sonata gls w/sunroof


Most commonly you'll have two screws where the visor attaches to the roof. Remove the cap / cover with your finger nail or a butter knife with a thin towel (like a t-shirt) starting on the edge towards you, don't overly force it. The cap will pop off one clip at a time (small snap sounds). Get the first snap and then work around the cap to pop the others out. The cap will pull back towards you and you'll see the two screws. Remove the screws and the visor will come out (pull it down with light force if needed).

I need to replace a u joint


is this a 4x4? do you need to replace the u joint in the hub behind the front wheels? or in the drive shaft?
you can perform either one with some patience and a few tools, the driveshaft is retained by 4 bolts on the rear differential, remove them and pull the drive shaft forward toward transmission,then let down towards ground, and pull the shaft out of the back of transmission,(put down rags as some fluid may leak out).
find a suitable workbench to sit the shaft on preferably in a vise. Next remove the snap rings in the end of the shaft that still retain the u-joint (flat head screwdriver,tapping them out of place with a hammer usually works).
Once the snap rings are removed use a brass drift (solid shaft) or a deep socket that fits the diameter of the joint and doesn't overlap on to the shaft, with some heavy force strike the drift or socket with a hammer repetative working the joint out, when the cap comes off of one side, switch to other side to drive the joint in opposite direction in order to remove other cap, when the other cap comes out the actual joint will slide and remove on an angle.
When installing the new joint put just the joint section in the reciever part of drive shaft, carefully align and install the end caps and drive them in with a socket, once seated install 1 new snap ring, flip the joint over and install the other cap,
take caution to make sure the needle bearings in the cap do not become dislodeged, and that both new snap rings have seated in the groves or you will lose the u-joint after a few miles.

I have a Ford Fiesta 02 my car door wont open using the handel, but can open from the inside, how do i fix this


The push rod from the outer handle to the lock/latch came off the door handle. You need to pop off the door panel (get a panel tool set at the auto parts store) and you'll be able to see into lock area and you'll see a rod with a "L" doing nothing. Put it back in the hole on the lock/latch and snap the keeper back on(it's probably in the bottom of the door)if no keeper, you can get one at a good auto parts store.

I can't get u joint out of driveshaft. Please help


You'll want to put it in a vice and heat it up untill the plastic oozes out. Then use a drift to knock out the u-joint one way then pull out the bearing cap and then same thing back the other way.Clean the holes with some emory cloth before installing the new one.

Changing front headlight bulb, directions?


1. Drivers Side. This is the easiest to get to. After opening the hood, right behind the lamp housing there are (2) rubber caps. The outside cap contains the low beam/day running bulb and the inside cap contains the high beam bulb.
a. Both bulbs are replaced the same way. Remove the rubber cap, these caps are soft and pliable but when you grab the edges to pull them off, they feel rigid. This is because the rubber cap is pressed over a hard plastic flange so when you squeeze and pull, it can be difficult to remove. If you can’t get a good grip to pull them off -
b. (Tip) There (2) clips on the headlamp housing, one is in plan view to the left and the other is under the fender just to the right top of the housing. It’s a little difficult to get to and you may need a flat head screwdriver to pry it up. Pull up on these clips and they will release the housing, but you cannot remove it. This will allow you to pull the housing out a few inches and you can see the edges of the rubber caps.
c. Using a flat head screwdriver, just gently pry the cap, once it starts coming off you can remove it with your hand. Reach in and grab the bulb assembly and turn it about ¼ corner turn “counter” clockwise and it will come out.
d. Remove the power wire harness that is clipped on.
e. Snap the new bulb into the power wire harness (DO NOT TOUCH) the new bulb with your bare hand!
f. Gently place it the bulb assembly back in the housing, turn ¼ turn clockwise, it will snap into place, replace the rubber cap, push the housing back into place and press the housing clips back down.
g. NOTE: Always put the rubber cap back on, it helps to keep moisture out of the housing.


2. Passenger Side. This is the hardest to get to. Remove the air cleaner cover and filter or you won’t be able to reach the back side of the housing. The instruction on how to remove these items should be in your owners manual.

U-joint changing


1.image
Operation: Most universal joints are held in place with a combination of pressed fit with a snap ring and either a bearing plate, bearing strap or a U-bolt. Advice: Most universal joints have two bearing caps pressed into the driveshaft and use a snap ring either on the inside or outside of the bearing cap to hold it in place. Some manufacturers use injected plastic instead of a snap ring. The injected plastic holds the cap in place under normal conditions but will break free when pressure is applied during the removal process. The replacement universal joint will use a snap ring instead of the injected plastic. The other two bearing caps are usually held in place by either a bearing plate, bearing strap or a U-bolt all of which can be removed with a normal ratchet and socket or wrench. Occasionally you will find all four bearing caps using the press fit method. In these cases two of the bearing caps will be pressed into a flange that unbolts from the differential or a slip yoke that slides off of the transmission tail shaft.
