The spring mechanism for the lid I guess popped out and I can't get it back in.

The spring popped out.I have a tiny piece that looks like a wrench,a spring and the hollow pointed piece that sits up against the wick. Did I kill it? pat #2 102.108? It's the tall one with vertical stripes. Thank you

2005 Lincoln LS V6 Ash Tray stays open, wont close


Pop out the ashtray. Remove the ashtray assembly (the housing). if you flip the ashtray over and look at the bottom you can see a small spot where a piece of plastic has broken off (this should be obvious). In the ashtray housing there is the latch mechanism with the broken "nipple" probably stuck inside of the mechanism. Get the plastic piece out and discard it. Reinstall the housing only.

Now, get a TINY ( I mean really small, like 4mm long and maybe 1/4-1/2mm diameter) screw handy. Drill a slightly smaller hole right through the ashtray where the piece of plastic was before it broke off. screw in the screw from the TOP of the ashtray so it only pokes out of the bottom 1.5 MMor so. Put the ashtray in. If it still doesn't "catch" screw the screw in a little further so it sticks out the bottom a little more. If it binds you've ******* the screw in too far so back it off. You get the drift.

This takes about 30 minutes. It's hard to explain but once you look at the bottom of the ashtray you'll understand the concept. Hope this helps somebody out there.

OK I have a 95 Chevy caprice there is a hole where my trunk lock is suppose to be, I bought the part to put in a new lock but I need to get in the trunk I cannot open it at all I need help


- Look at the part you bought to see what motion will be activated to release the trunk lid once it is installed.
- Look into the hole to see where that motion will happen, and find the piece that will get moved.
- Use a screwdriver or bend a small piece of metal so that you can reach the triggering mechanism.
- Press down on the trunk lid to reduce pressure on the latch mechanism, and move the release linkage appropriately.
- Should pop open.

Driver's side door latch won't budge once closed. Locked or unlocked the outer handle acts like the door is locked. Any suggestions?


The outer handle has a spring to return it built into the handle I think, so the fact that it returns does not mean it isn't disconnected inside the door. Time for a shop I think (are the replacement switches really $500? Might check with a parts store instead of dealer to see if they can supply that part.)

2003 mitsubishi climate control stuck


Follow the cable.. It's the white piece that the cable connects to. Some kind of spring doesnt push the white piece forward far enough to select a hot temperature. You can adjust it yourself from the driver's seat at a red light. It feels like flat lever against the dash/transmission tunnel. Push forward for heat, pull back for AC. There's a spring busted or something and the knob can't overcome the required force... Just manipulate it manually. You can see the white lever mechanism clear as day if you open the driver's door, crouch down and look for the big white piece. My guess is that it has a internal tensioner or spring that crapped out.

How do you get the emergency brake to release?


Some Pontiac models have a release cable pull located on the drivers side lower dash panel...other models do not have a seperate release pull...the white lettered instructions could be worn off...but you will need to depress the parking pad pedal in order to release...if none of this works, your parking brake cable is stuck, and needs to be lubricated...not a costly thing...have you had the rear brakes serviced? Hope this helps...:)

Fuel filler door my Jaguar X (2002) will not unlock


Most cars have an emergency fuel filler door release somwhere in the trunk. Look for some kind of pull cord close to the area of the outside fill door.

Trunk lock broken by uninsured motorist


to put on a trunk lid is very simple usually 4 bolts on the bottom near back window. As far as locating a trunk lid look under auto salvage in the yellow pages tell them what you need they can locate the part for you over their network. Anyone with a wrench will be able to install the lid as long as there is no other body damage

Jetta 2003, trunk won't lock


More than likely the spring inside the latch has come undone. To save some money you can remove the latch from the trunk, open the latch and reset the spring. To Remove the latch you will need to remove the carpeted cover on the trunk lid (there are about 10-15 phillips screws holding it on.) Once the cover is off disconnect the rod going to the latch by opening up the clip thats connected to the actuator. Disconnect the wire harness, Remove the 2 10mm Nuts holding the latch to the lid. Remove the black plastic cover on the latch and remove the electrical piece (the plastic cover wraps over the latch and is secured buy 2 plastic pressure snaps). Look down into the latch and you should see a small spring...on my Jetta the spring wasn't connected. take a small pointed object ( I used a light tester) and reattch the spring to the black hook. Mine had some broken plastic in it and After I removed that it worked fine. Once the spring is back into place reassemble the trunk and you should be good to go. No money spent, and it only takes about a half hour or 45 mins to do.

Timing belt tensioner


ok sounds simple
get under car with a big socket wrench and i mean big wrench the length of arm bigger the wrench less strain on arm to pulley
cause it might seem stuck but if apply opposite preasure to the tensioner with big socket wrench the tensioner will loose its grip
if u use a small socket wrench its like shooting tiny tiny target with a shirman tank
dont worry yours is not frozen its just the size of your wrench that is giving trouble
