SOURCE: Replacing the broken cup holder

First, you must remove the floor console bezel (the trim piece that surrounds the shifter knob). The proper method to remove this involves removing the shifter knob first. This is held in by a small set screw on the "radio" side of the knob. To remove the screw, you will need a small "hex-key" (also known as Allen key or Allen wrench). The proper size is 3mm, but you can get away with using a size 7/64" if you need to. Once loosened, I believe that the knob pulls right up and off. Make sure you do not lose the small screw. Also be careful not to accidentally contact the tip-top of the shifter while the knob is removed, as this may break off the small black plastic tip, which will require much more work to repair and/or replace the entire shifter.
Next, you should be able to remove the floor console bezel by prying gently and carefully on the corners and sides of the piece with a tool called a trim stick, or if you do not have this tool, you can get away with using a small, thin-tipped flat head screwdriver. However, this will almost surely cause some aesthetic damage to the edges of the trim.
Once this bezel is out of the way, (you shouldn't have to remove the electrical connectors on the underside of the bezel for this specific job) there are 2 screws holding down the bottom of the cupholder assembly. I believe these are both Torx - type screws, which will need either a T10, T15, or T20 screwdriver bit to remove(I'm sorry but I don't remember exactly which of the 3 sizes are used). After these 2 screws are removed, open the armrest. On the TOP of the FRONT of the armrest, just above the cupholders, are 2 more screws which should be the same as the 2 bottom screws. Remove these, then lift the cupholder assembly up and forward to remove it.

To install, simply reverse the above procedure.

Because this is my first solution posted on this site, I would love to have your feedback. Please let me know how everything goes with this project. Thank you!

SOURCE: My timing belt book does

i'm not sure what it is that your doing. it sounds like your want to replace the timing belt or adjust, maybe set your timing because it's a fresh build??
Do you know where your timing marks are? or what cylinder needs to be a TDC?? if you know this you should be able to do what ever it is that you need to do. take your time watch what your doing and belive in yourself. if you feel your getting in over your head stop and ask for help.
Good luck
Mark

SOURCE: broke left hand side exterior electric mirror on

Hello,
I think I can explain it easy enough with no diagrams as this is a simple enough job.

  1. On the door panel go to the upper right corner.
  2. Pull that little access panel off. There is sometimes a screw or two to remove and other times it pops off but you will be able to tell at a glance.
  3. Now you will see 3 bolts (13mm or 14mm) and a wire harness running down.
  4. First pull up on the harness a bit to expose the connector. Sometimes there will be a zip tie of sorts holding the harness in place. Just snip it but don't cut the harness.
  5. Now take a flathead screwdriver and gently lift up on the connector on the tab and pull the connector off BUT don't drop the connector inside the door panel. Anchor it with some tape.
  6. Now remove two of them 3 bolts and just loosen the 3rd bolt.
  7. Now with one hand supporting the mirror remove the 3rd bolt with the other hand.
  8. Now the mirror will slide right off. Mind the connector to make sure it does not get hung up on the way out.
  9. Now reverse the procedure to install.
  10. Job finished.
Regards, Tony
