SOURCE: windows dont move down or up

you have to rebuild (which can be ghetto rigged, but never is reccomended) or replace the window winder units. they can be removed, find the rail which those loose cables came from and remove it, it should be an assembly with the winder motor attached. be sure to remove the bolt that attach to the window mount also. if you can locate the place where the end of the cable is supposed to mount (on a little slider thing) and make a new mount for the end of the cable, then take apart the winder motor spool, and re wind the cable inside the spool, then put it back together, you have ghetto rigged yopur winder. if you cant do all that, you will have to replace the whole unit at a cost of around $120.

SOURCE: Jeep 1992 yJ Outside Door Handle

ok, the inside panel is cardboard with faux leather. remove the screws holding on the inside handle and the frame of the doorlatch.

there is a plastic joint that connects the two rods that actuate and open the door. the rods are bent at the end to slip into the white plastic joint. this design is stupid and often times that joint can break, or the rods fall out. solution is to reattach them together and wrap mechanics wire or bend the very ends of the rods so they wont come out.

its something i cant really explain, but the design is straight forward. also, keep track of the threads on the rod that connects to the claw that meets the striker on the frame of the jeep. if for any reason its not adjusted properly, it will not latch properly.

I have a 00 s80 the battery died and the trunk lock was on so i cnt access the trunk at all, I have been told that i can charge the battery from up under the hood...my problem is that the latch up under...


The handle under the dash should open the hood not the trunk. Use a pair of vise grips and pull the cable with them. Then replace the cable.

When I go to put truck in gear it feels like the linkage is disconnected


Sounds like a broken Shift Cable or Linkage. Check the Transmission where the Shift lever is attached to the cable or linkage.

Passenger side window motor replacement


Installing Passenger Side Power Window:
First of all there are only 2 - 9/32 bolts that hold the door panel on. One is located right behind the door handle in plain sight. The second is the one that eluded me and I ended up breaking the hook off the back of the panel...it's located under the switch panel. It's a snap to remove; just pry around on it and it comes right up. Once again; these are the ONLY 2 bolts holding the panel to the door. Snap the cover off that goes around the door opening handle and also the little triangular piece that's where the wing windows used to be on the older trucks. Also pull the plastic part that's over the door lock. Then gently lift straight up just a little and pull out towards you. The panel will come right out where you can then unplug the speaker wire and remove the bulb assembly from the door light at the bottom. 1 - 3/8 bolt holds the door handle on; remove the handle and set aside. Then strip the plastic off being careful not to tear it since this will be reused. This is to keep moisture out and road noise down. My problem was a broken cable so I could move my window up and down by hand, but you may have to plug the switch in to move yours to the right position. I think it's about 1/4 inch down where you can see the 2 - 3/8 bolts that hold the window to the regulator. Loosen these bolts then gently break the window free. Pull it all the way up and tape it there so it doesn't fall and break while you are removing the old unit and installing the new one. There are 6 - 3/8 bolts that hold the assembly in place and it's pretty easy to figure out which ones they are. Take these out and work the unit out through the large hole at the bottom. The new one goes in pretty much the same way only in reverse. After I got the 6 - 3/8 bolts back in place I plugged the window switch in and rolled the unit all the way up being careful to make sure the clamps were going to line up with the window. They did, so I took the tape off and slowly lowered the window where I could tighten the 2 clamps down on the glass. Put the plastic back on, then the door handle. Plug the speaker wire back in and put the light back in at the bottom of the door, then set the panel back in the holes. Mine wasn't hard at all. Reinstall the 2 - 9/32 bolts then plug the switch assembly in and snap back in place. Replace the rest of the plastic covers and you should be pretty much finished.

Key stuck in ignition


We just had this same problem today!!! We have a 2006 Ford Focus and the car would start and we could still drive it, but the key locked in the ignition and would not come out. We tried everything, but what worked was to move the black sleeve (has three plastic rings at top close to handle bar) around the gear shift handle bar, up. It was pushed down about a half inch and it took some pressure to pull upwards, but once we pulled the plastic black sleeve around the gear shift handle bar up, the key came out! Easy as pie!!! Saved hundred of dollars! YAY!!!

The rear hatch seem to be jammed or stuck it wont open at all how can i get it open


Crawl thru the front to the rear of the truck, Remove the two screws on the gate release handle (they are underneath the handle, two philips).
Gently pull on the plastic panel by the release handle, it will come out about 4 inches, it should be enough if you have a small arm (which I have.) I wedged a plastic 20oz bottle between the rear gate and the inner plastic panel, to keep the plastic held out, don't over stress the plastic it will break if its old enough, look down from the window hatch about 5 inches or so and notice the 2" x 3" opening, there is a lever in there that is moved by the actuator, and a piece of plastic (which is what my friends truck needs, if someone has a part number or aftermarket please advise) but if you reach in to that access panel, there is a slide that moves from right (looking at the gate from the inside) to left, moving it to the left (Opens the window)
Apon opening the window, remove the plastic bottle, and open the rear gate hatch, when the hatch is open there are two screws one on the left side of the gate, and on the right side.I hope this helps you out, remember: don't overstress the plastic, strip out the screws, or break the window..
Once you have everything out, you can replace the actuator or fix the wire leads that may have come loose form the rear door actuator keep you from opening the rear window.
Good luck and thank you for using fixya

2001 Toyota Sequoia lift gate latch broken, door is locked closed


Take a look at my other Sequoia posts about this.

You need to remove the interior pull handle first then gently pry away the interior panels from the top down. Go look at Tundra Solutions.com for the detailed procedure on the handle assemlby replacement but here is a rundown:

First, take off the license plate2_bing.gif.
Since the hatch wouldn't open, I started from the inside and took down the top trim piece. After that the two side pieces come down, then the main trim piece which covers the bulk of the door comes out. These are all popped in with the white tabs.
There are 3 access hole covers to pop out (don't forget to install them back in when done) and through the left hole you can see the mechanism to unlatch, press it down with a screwdriver and open the door. If anytime you close the door you will have to do this to unlatch, up until you disconnect the cable and pull out the handle, then you have to locate the cable and pull that directly.
Behind the large trim piece you will find a metal access cover, remove the 7 or 8 10mm bolts holding that on and pop the 3 white tabs and let it hang off to the side. Disconnect the cable from the handle assembly by reaching in from the right hand side and popping of the cable from the handle assembly.
From the left and right access holes, locate the two 10mm nuts which hold the license plate assembly to the door and remove them. Then there are 4 plastic tabs that come in from the outside that hold the license plate assembly on in each corner, try and locate those and using some pliers squeeze them together and push it through. Next locate the license plate lamps wire connector and release that from the left side, it’s the simple push in and pull out square white connector.
After these are out, put back in 1 or 2 bolts into the large metal access cover so the hatch can be lowered (don’t close it).
Here is where I had fun, begin to pop out the assembly that it was bolted to. I ended up breaking 3 of the 4 plastic tabs in each corner because I did not use pliers from the other side to pull them out, however it remained somewhat useable (hindsight 20/20).
Now the license plate assembly can be taken to a bench to replace the handle assembly (Toyota doesn't sell just the handle, it is a small assembly). Two screws out and the assembly is replaced.
Before pressing the license plate assembly back onto the truck, make certain all the plastic tabs are in the assembly and not in the truck. Reverse the process to re-install.

I cannot open my trunk cannot grip handle its just hanging is there a safety latch to open it or a string or something will not open with key will not open with power lock either because I cannot press...


I posted this for a manual door - not sure for automatic door.

If you still have the broken piece, you can try to use that to try to open the back. Otherwise, you have to open it from the inside.
I changes mine in 2007 so if memory serves me, I had to remove the back panel and pull on the cable to open the door.

Now to see and pull on the cable, and replace the latch, you have to take off the inside liner/panel to get to the latch to replace it. This took about 2 careful hours to replace.

The trick is to get the two side pieces off.
These two plastic pieces are next to the window on the left and right sides. Each piece is about 3 inches wide and 18 inches long. Using a strong grip, or a pry bar or large screwdriver, take off both pieces. There are three clip areas that holds each piece in.

If you are using a tool, be careful to protect the area by wrapping a towel on the screwdriver/tool.

After that the bottom liner piece pulls away and you can see the latch.
There are two screws/bolts that holds the latch.

The two pieces snaps back in pretty easily.

You probably broke the plastic piece shaped like a J.
You can try to glue the pieces back, but note that the piece broke due to age. I changed the whole assembly - good for another 7 yrs. I could not find just the plastic piece

Vw golf bonnet release


On mine, a RHD, it is a plastic lever just forward of the door post. It is a crappy piece of plastic about four inches long.Mine has recently broken and will result in a bill for about £60-70 for replacing the lever and the cable (the cable is very tight)
Getting the handle off was a hell of a job until someone spotted that inside the handle, on the lower part as accessed from the outside, is a clip that needs to be pulled out to release the handle. Only then could we reach the cable and that took an enourmopus amount of effirt to release the bonnet.
As the mechanic said, "I didn't expect this sort of rubbish from VW"
