Breakers Yard is your best bet

It is a wear and tear factor on the belts and messing with them can only lead to problems with safety and testing

SOURCE: My manual driver's side seat adjuster won't lock

Hi, you may have to remove the seat from the car it's most likely the only way you are going to be able to see the fault, the lever for lifting the seat is normally the cause have you tried forceing the lever back into position or working it up and down.

Th seat is pretty easy to take out, Regards

SOURCE: Need to adjust the low beams on my '02 Hyundai

Headlight adjustment is fairly straight forward, you will need to park the car on a level surface with a fence or wall 25 feet away and a reference point for measurements to the right or left of the car. First measure from the reference point to the center line of the car then transfer that to the wall, second, measure from the center of the car to the center of the headlights and transfer those to the wall, third, measure from the ground to the center of the headlights and transfer that to the wall. Once all of the reference points have been transferred, adjust the left (driver's side) headlight so that the most intense part of the beam is 2 inches below and 2 inches to the right of the left mark, the right (passenger side) headlight should be adjusted so that it will be 2 inches below and 1 inch to the left of the mark. If done correctly, you will have very good night vision without blinding oncoming traffic.

P.S. Please note that any heavy objects in the car will be a factor in correct headlight adjustment, have the car loaded as it will be normally used.

I got a 1989 big bear it pulls to the right i put new tie rid ends and upper and lower balk joints in pulled cv axel it seems to be ok steering bearings seem fine also anyine have any ideas


Try aiming the handle bar straight and pull some kite string across the rear wheel , lightly touching the sidewalls of the tire. With the length of the string pulled across the front tire, adjust the outer tie rod so as to make front tire lightly touch the string. That should square the front tire to the back tire. Once the front and rear are squared, adjust tie rod in 1 turn for a slight negative toe. Do both sides while making sure to keep the handle bar straight during string and adjustment. That should help.

How to adjust a torsion bar


Step 1 Jack up the vehicle on the wheel to be adjusted, and set the frame rail onto a jack stand. This is to release the stress on the torsion bar so it can be adjusted easily.
  • Step 2 Crawl underneath the vehicle and locate the torsion bar mount on the frame. There will be a bolt in the center of the mount, pointing upward. This is the adjusting bolt, and it will accommodate a large-sized socket driver.
  • Step 3 Adjust the torsion bar. Turning the adjustment bolt clockwise will tighten it, raising the amount of load that can be placed on the bar. This will raise the vehicle when it is taken off the jack stand. Turning it counterclockwise will lower the available spring rate and cause the car to sit lower. Turning it too far in either direction can cause problems, so follow the specific vehicle's manufacturer guidelines when making wide adjustments. Normally, only one full turn will be enough to give the desired result.
  • Step 4 Lower the vehicle, and check the clearances of the frame to the ground. They should be the same for both sides. If they are not, then more adjustment will be necessary to the torsion bar adjustment bolts.

    I have an old 1989 Toyota dyna with 14b motor 5 speed. I wish to know if the hydraulic clutch is adjustable and if so how, as mine is slipping and hard to change down gears


    hi, no im afraid with the hydraulic clutch their is no adjustment its going to be a case of buying a clutch kit and change the clutch.

    If it was cable tight then some are adjustable and some are not but even the ones that are not adjustable you can get round this and adjust them slightly but with your type of clutch their is nothing at all you can do.

    Sorry i couldnt give you any good news or an easy fix but its going to be a case of changing parts to solve your problem.

    Let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok

    E brakes need adjustment


    There is a adjust at the e-brake handle. You hap to take the cover off to get to it. IT a good sign that your brake shoes are close to needing replacing. If you adjust it up. It will hap to be backed off to replace the shores. There is another adjustment under the car at the Y connection on some model. It is located under car in the center of the car. Another way is to adjust the shoes with a brake spoon. So the shoes are closer to the to the drums. These adjustment are better done by a mechanic that has the tools to do this safely. Cause this has to be done with car so the wheels can be turned by hand. cheers!!!!!!!!

    Describe your Hyundai Problem Were do you adjust


    This will require you to take the center console out for a better view and to more easily access and adjust the hand brake.

    the book is correct it is under the hand brake itself and very easy to adjust once you get the console out of the way its held in by screws and you will have to take it totaly out.

    you need two wrenches to adjust the parking brake and that's it.. remember to leave it in the down position when adjusting it and pull it up after about every 3 full turns turns just to check to see how tight you have it. you don't want to over tighten it
    the emergency brake will be on all the time and wear out the brake pads. this sounds harder than it really is. the hardest part of the whole thing is getting the console out of the way once that is done you will be able to see how its done

    Rear wheel locks up when appling brakes


    Hi, check wheel for bad/leaking brake wheel cylinder. An easy way to do this without removing wheel is to look at the outside of the drum from the backside for any brake fluid. If the backside of the drum looks wet, replace wheel cylinder. If it looks dry, remove tire and drum to inspect wheel cylinder for any brake fluid. If rubber boots on end of wheel cylinder appears to be dry, adjust rear brake turning adjusting screw (long bar on bottom with a "star" in center), replace drum, if you cannot put the drum back on easily, back up the screw you turned until the drum goes on easily but without too much slack, start car, apply brake, check drum to see if it can come off easily, if not, repeat until drum is snug, but not tight.
    New rear wheel cylinder part avg.: $25-$35 ea.

    2000 tahoe rear drum brakes, fix


    Below is a description of how to replace the rear brake shoes. You didn't mention if it is 2 wheel or 4 wheel drive.
    Hope this helps.
    Regards,

    Dust and dirt accumulating on brake parts during normal use may contain asbestos fibers from production or aftermarket brake linings. Breathing excessive concentrations of asbestos fibers can cause serious bodily harm. Exercise care when servicing brake parts. Do not sand or grind brake lining unless equipment used is designed to contain the dust residue. Do not clean brake parts with compressed air or by dry brushing. Cleaning should be done by dampening the brake components with a fine mist of water, then wiping the brake components clean with a dampened cloth. Dispose of cloth and all residue containing asbestos fibers in an impermeable container with the appropriate label. Follow practices prescribed by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for the handling, processing, and disposing of dust or debris that may contain asbestos fibers.

    1. Raise and support the vehicle safely.
    2. Mark the relationship of the wheel to the hub and remove the wheel.
    3. Mark the relationship of the drum to the hub and pull the drum from the brake assembly.

    If the brake drums have been scored from worn linings, the brake adjuster must be backed off so the brake shoes will retract from the drum. The adjuster can be backed off by inserting a brake adjusting tool through the access hole provided. In some cases the access hole is provided in the brake drum. A metal cover plate is over the hole. This may be removed by using a hammer and chisel.
    To install:
    1. Align the mark on the drum to mark on hub and install drum
    2. Align the mark on the wheel to mark on drum and install wheel
    3. Adjust brake lining as needed. Pump brakes

    How to adjust handbrake cables.


    Under the console, the single cable to the handle joins to an equalizer which connects to the two cables going to the rear brakes. There is no adjustment in that area. The adjustment to the cable doesn't exist. Each rear parking brake is adjusted in drag only.
