SOURCE: 1999 GMC Suburban - how to install dr side power window motor/arm

The window should be put in a closed position.
Hidden screws behind buttons of the same color as panel should be opened up using a pick or small screwdiver.
Pry the lower part of the panel away from the door using a paint scraper, The lower half of this panel is usually held in with plastic fastners. When pulled hard enough they will release. These fastners are replacable you can buy them at your local body shop. After releasing all plastic fastners lift door panel off door lock in an upward thrust. Be careful not to pull to far away from door due to wire harnesses and speaker wires ect.. These can be uncliped to remkove whole panel. To operate window you can replug window harness wires in order to bring the window into the proper position to remove bolts that hold it into place. Carefully position glass in upward position and duct tape in place.
The regulator is held in place by three or more bolts.
Remove regulator.
Compare your new part to the existing window regulator.
Installation is reversal of removal.
Any questions get back!

SOURCE: leaking pwr steering fluid out of steering gear

Yes these seals can be replaced. You can purchase the seals separatly or as a seal kit. You have to have a pitman arm puller, long nose snap ring pliers and some specaily shapped pics or seal pullers. It is a messy job if done in the vehicle, but it is not difficult to remove the box and repair it. Make sure the bearing is good before replacing the seals. Hope this helps.

Windshield wiper on passengers side stopped working.


The wiper arm is either loose or the gear has stripped out the arm socket itself. Try taking the arm off and turn the wipers on, if that gear still turns, then try tightening the arm back down. If it is stripped, you must replace the arm. Otherwise, if the gear still doesnt turn, the connecting rods under the cowl have been damaged and may need replaced.

How to fix wipers only the right one will come on, have a 2004 silverado


Hello wallacetony5
First, remove the left wiper arm and see if the round fine spline gear that drives the arm is turning.
If not, the problem is with the wiper transmission under the cowl. Could be a broken or disconnected linkage arm. If the gear is turning and it's not stripped then most likly the wiper arm is
stripped. The trans. gear is steel and the wiper arm is aluminum and more often then not strips first.
This is a very common problem this time of year when the wipers freeze to the windshield.
Hope this was helpful.

My driver side windshield wiper gear is stripped out allowing the wiper to go were it wishes. It either travels to far and ends up getting stuck on the driver door or it goes to far down and ends up...


Knowing the make and model of your vehicle would help immensely. From your description and my experience, I would say it's not a gear, but the wiper arm itself. Where the arm mounts to the wiper transmission (aka motor), there will be a plastic or sometimes metal cover, gently pull or pry upward on the edge of it to expose the nut that keeps it in place. Remove this nut and then the arm, and inspect the 'teeth' or splines inside the hole on the arm, and on the wiper transmission, where the arm mounts. Most often the arms are made of aluminum, and the transmission is of steel, so the arm will strip first. Usually the arm can be replaced (try a junkyard for a low cost replacement) without much effort, and a few basic hand tools. Also be sure to clean any residual material from the wiper transmission where the arm mounts prior to installation, a piece of steel wool or brillo pad usually works best. I hope this helps, and good luck.

I am replacing my rack and pinion in 1996 dodge intrepid.do i need to replace my inner tie rod ends as well?


Power Steering Rack -I don't think you need to replace the inner tie rod ends as well unless they have excessive play. REMOVAL & INSTALLATION The power steering gear should not be disassembled in an attempt to service or adjust. If a malfunction or oil leak should occur, the complete rack and pinion steering gear assembly should be replaced. Note that Chrysler LH platform vehicles use two different power rack and pinion steering gears; standard and an available electronically controlled, variable-assist speed-proportional power steering rack and pinion assembly. The removal and installation procedures are similar and the following procedures should suffice for both units. And, as with the standard unit, the complete variable-assist rack and pinion assembly should be replaced in event of malfunction, although the solenoid control valve control module and solenoid control valve may be replaced separately. CAUTION
The Supplemental Inflatable Restraint (SIR) system must be disarmed before removing the rack and pinion steering gear. Failure to do so may cause accidental deployment of the air bag, resulting in unnecessary SIR system repairs and/or personal injury.
  1. Disconnect negative battery cable. Disarm the air bag system.
  2. Raise and safely support the vehicle.
  3. Remove the gear shift cable from the shifter lever on the transaxle.
  4. Loosen the bolt at the gear shift cable to transaxle mount. Remove the cable from the transaxle.
  5. Lower the vehicle.
  6. If necessary, disconnect the throttle cable from the throttle body and remove throttle cable bracket.
  7. Remove both wiper arm assemblies from the wiper arm pivots. Remove the cowl closure panel and weatherstrip as an assembly from the cowl.
  8. Disconnect the wiper module wiring harness from the vehicle wiring harness. Remove the wiper module assembly from the vehicle cowl panel.
  9. Disconnect the air plenum from the throttle body, PCV make up air tube and the idle air control motor. Remove he plenum from the right side of the vehicle through the wiper module area.
  10. Remove the vacuum connector from the power brake booster at the intake manifold.
  11. Turn the front wheels to the full left position. Then turn the wheels back in the other direction until the roll pin in the lower steering coupler is accessible. Turn the ignition key switch to the LOCK position to keep the steering column from rotating after the coupler is removed from the steering gear. If the steering column shaft rotates beyond the normal number of turns in either direction, the air bag clock spring will be damaged.
  12. Using paint, mark the steering coupling and steering gear shaft for orientation. Using the correct size punch, remove the roll pin from the steering coupling.
  13. If equipped with a brake pedal travel sensor, remove the pedal travel sensor from the brake booster as follows:
    1. Pump the brake pedal approximately 20 times. This will bleed the vacuum stored in the booster.
    2. Remove the wiring harness connector from the sensor.
    3. Using a small flat tipped tool, lift the retainer ring from the notch. Then remove the retaining ring from the grommet.
    4. Remove the pedal travel sensor from the brake booster by carefully pulling it straight out of its mounting grommet. Do not twist the sensor.
  14. Loosen and remove the two nuts attaching the master cylinder to the brake booster. Remove the master cylinder with the brake lines connected, and position aside.
  15. Remove the power steering pressure hose and return hose from the power steering gear.
  16. Bend back the retaining tabs on bolt attaching the tie rods to the steering gear and remove the bolts.
  17. Lay the tie rods, bolts and plate as an assembly on the bellhousing of the transaxle.
  18. If the rack and pinion steering gear unit being removed is a speed proportional steering gear, disconnect the vehicle wiring harness from the solenoid control module.
  19. Remove the four bolts attaching the steering gear assembly to the crossmember. Slide the steering gear forward in the vehicle to disengage steering coupler from the steering gear shaft. After gear is disengaged, do not rotate the steering gear shaft.
  20. Remove the steering gear assembly from the vehicle through the area in the cowl from which the windshield wiper module was previously removed. To install:
  21. If a replacement rack is being installed, grasp the shaft of the steering gear and rotate until steering gear center take off is in a full left turn position. Install the steering gear into the vehicle through the wiper module opening in cowl.
  22. If the original gear is being installed, align the paint mark on the steering coupler with the mark on the steering gear shaft and install the steering gear shaft into the steering gear coupler.
  23. If a replacement rack is being installed, the steering gear shaft and steering coupler must be aligned. Rotate the steering gear shaft back from the full left turn position until the master spline on the steering gear shaft is aligned with the master spline on the steering coupler. At this point, install the steering gear into the coupler.
  24. Align the steering gear with the mounting holes in the crossmember and install bolts. Be sure the brake line routing clip is installed under the left steering gear mounting bracket. Tighten the mounting bolts to 50 ft. lbs. (68 Nm).
  25. Install the steering coupler to steering gear shaft retaining roll pin until it is flush with the top edge of the steering coupler.
  26. If equipped with 3.5L engine, correct orientation of the power steering pressure hose at the power steering pump must be maintained. Be sure the power steering hose is installed in orientation clip at the power steering pump prior to tightening tube fitting. Attach the power steering pressure and return lines onto the proper ports of the power steering gear. Tighten both fittings to 23 ft. lbs. (31 Nm).
  27. Align the center take off on the steering gear with the tie rod assemblies. Install the tie rod attaching bolts and washers into the steering gear assembly. Be sure the washers are installed between the tie rods and the steering gear. Tighten the tie rod to steering gear attaching bolts to 55 ft. lbs. (75 Nm). Bend the retaining tabs against the heads of the bolts.
  28. Install the pedal travel sensor retainer ring on the travel sensor grommet in the vacuum booster. The tab on the retaining ring should be located in top notch of the mounting grommet.
  29. Sparingly lubricate pedal travel sensor O-ring with fresh brake fluid. Install the pedal travel O-ring into the pedal travel sensor mounting grommet. Coat the end of the sensor with fresh brake fluid and install by pushing straight into the mounting grommet on the brake booster until the tab on the sensor is past the retaining ring on grommet.
  30. Install the wire harness connector to the pedal travel sensor.
  31. Install the master cylinder and tighten nuts to 250 inch lbs. (28 Nm).
  32. Install the power booster vacuum hose to the intake manifold. Install the windshield wiper module to the cowl panel. Reconnect the electrical harness to the module.
  33. If removed, install the air intake plenum and reconnect to the idle air control motor, PCV make up air tube and throttle body.
  34. Install the windshield wiper module assembly into the vehicle cowl area and reconnect the wiring harness from the wiper module to the vehicle wiring harness.
  35. Install the cowl closure panel and tighten the six mounting screws. Install the weather strip on shock towers.
  36. Install the windshield washer hoses on the wiper arms, then install arms on the windshield wiper pivots.
  37. If removed, install the throttle cable to the bracket and install to the throttle body.
  38. Reconnect the wiring harness from the solenoid control valve onto the solenoid control module. Be sure that the harness connector seal is in good condition before installation.
  39. Raise and safely support the vehicle.
  40. Install the gear shift cable onto the shift lever on transaxle. Install gear shift cable on cable mounting bracket of transaxle and securely tighten bolt.
  41. Lower the vehicle. Connect the negative battery cable.

Will the 87 2.5 chevy engine bend valves when the cam gear strips ?


I have worked on many of these with this problem, I best answer is; that while they can bend valves I personally have not seen it happen.....yet.
You can pull the valve cover and see if the valves look even to each other with the rocker arms off, or more quickly check if any of the rocker arms seem very loose without removal .

Replaced wiper motor,twice, when i turn it on the arms move about two inches,then stop .then they.sound like there slipping .just move up &down about two inches. 88 celebrity


This doesn't sound like a motor problem but a gear stripped. The motor and gear are normally sold and installed as a single unit. See if you can move the arm manually. If you get a lot of slop it could be a stripped gear. Turn the wipers on and move the arm manually. It may catch and than stop at the broken part of the gear.
