SOURCE: The front passenger tire for my MDX is damaged

It depends on who you talk to. Certainly the manufacturer and tire companies will say so but their biggest worry is liability. A lot of people do not do this and don't have any trouble, not all of us have the deep pockets that are required to keep them happy.
For sure the tread depth or wear has to be the same on an axle so you should at least change them in pairs. Depending on how much tread is left on the driver's tire you maybe should consider replacing the pair, if it's nearly worn out. A used tire that will match up in tread design could replace a half worn tire. Tread design HAS to match on the drive wheels and should match on any axle.
Minimum tread depth, in Canada is 3/32 of an inch and is probably similar elsewhere.All tire dealers have a guage to measure this and should check the tire in 2 or 3 spots.
If your tire shop is giving you a hard time or refuses to work with you, find another shop. A "mom and pop" shop will probably be more user friendly than a large chain and the prices won't be much different. Just remember that a used tire is used and will not give you the same mileage as a new one. Also what do you think the tire shop is going to do with the 3 tires they are taking off? They don't throw them out if there is any tread left on them, they sell them. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: instructions for installing 2001 gs430 struts

Be carefull , you will need spring compressor tools to do the job. The springs are compressed quite a bit and if you just undoo the top nut for the strut , you could kill yourself. Don't doo wheel bearings unless you know they are bad. Not sure about your lexus , but most modern cars have sealed bearings pressed in place.

SOURCE: how to replace a side rearview mirror on 88 dodge caravan

Theres 3 nuts that are hidden behind the triangle where mirror mounts on interior side of door. Remove that cover and the nuts. I think its a 12 or 13 mm wrench or socket. It should be obvious if you have replacement mirror handy to look at, you can see the studs. Good luck and I hope this helps you.

I have Teac SL-D80 radio, CD player. One of its speakersLeftdoesn't, work.How to fix it? replace the speaker or wire?Thank you!

Unplug unit.
Open casing.
Look for loose wiring connector, otherwise:
Temporarily swap left and right speakers.
Plug in and play a continuous recorded tone of about 50Hz-440Hz.
Play with maximum volume to get a decent voltage reading.
If LEFT CH now works then L speaker is faulty.
If RIGHT CH now works then L amplifier is faulty.
Electrical test (needs a meter with Volts and Resistance).
With speaker still connected test audio (AC V) signal on working right speaker terminals.
Now check left Channel at amplifier board if possible, and at speaker terminals.
If no V unplug speaker wires if possible at board then test across board L+ and L- output pins.
Still nothing means amp is faulty.
Test continuity of speaker wires end-to-end. Each wire should be 0 ohms or close to zero. The continuity buzzer function can also be used for this.
With amplifier off and unplugged, remove speaker-connector from board or cut live speaker wire or unplug lug at speaker, whichever is easier. With one wire apart from the amplifier, test the loudspeaker ohms.
Should be in the range of about 4-8 ohms.
Most speakers have the rating screen-printed on the voice-coil magnet housing.
If ohms reading is way too low, say 0-1 ohm it has a short and is damaged.
If ohms reading is way too high, say several Meg-ohms, it has a coil break and is damaged.
Carefully join/tape any cut wires if applicable, renew speaker if faulty with same size and rating, re-test then re-assemble.

I have a dodge 318 with the spark plug threads well seated into head rest of plug is gone have tried everything to get it out .do I drill it and put in steel insert.

If you don't have the proper socket for the plug & its only 1 plug that is going to have to be drilled, get the socket. If all of the plugs are damaged beyond removable then you have a job beyond DIY. If you can still get that one plug with the proper socket (not over damaged, DO IT. If not , without the right tools (taps/ dies/ magnets/ air hoses, suction, etc. your going to get spark plug bits all over your piston & valves & in the motor. TRY YOUR BEST TO GET IT OUT OR HAVE IT DONE FOR YOU. Good Luck Frank M

My cruise is not working. Is there a fuse?

Yes there is a fuse which is located at the left end of the instrument panel.Some of the features of this system require special testers and diagnostic procedures that are beyond the scope of the home mechanic and should be tested by your local repair shop.These systems contain a servo motor ,vacuum pump, a sereies of valves and vacuum hoses,the cruise control module and a vacuum system amplifier.This the reason I recommend that a repair shop does everything but check the fuses,and that is only for your safety.

Toyota 1996 v6 camry no power getting to the air conditioing relay

On a camry I had trouble with the A/C. If I removed the relay & bridged the connections it would run fine. It appeared to have no signal to close the relay. The button on the dash showed the light coming on etc.
It went to an auto electrician & after quite some time it was found that there was an item called...something? amplifier.... which was faulty. It was about 5 years ago, sorry to be vague. It could be voltage amplifier, current amplifier. Anyway, as I remember it, it was located behind the L/H (passenger) side kick panel (Australia). Also there are circuit breakers in behind both kick panels, oval shaped with a metal plate that have a small hole for something not quite as big as a match to be pushed in and reactivate them. Good Luck.

Radio quit working but they say it has an external amplifer is that true?

It hard to say, it could be the radio itself not putting out any sound or it could be the external amplifier. assuming the radio work fine, than it will be the external amplifier or visa-versa. the radio out put low frequency sound which we call it pre-amp line which run to and connected to the ext. amperfier, ext. amprefier then amplify the sound to the speakers. if the ext. amplifier if faulty than you will get no sound even though the radio is working properly. hope that make sense..good luck, if you need to replace the stock ext. amplifier, check on ebay for good deal, don't buy it new from a dealer, will cost you arm and a leg. you can also just replace the new entired radio systems (after market) but use the same speakers.

Installing an aftermarket stereo in 1996 explorer...sound issues.

You may have a factory amplifier in the rear of the explorer in the right cargo panel. You need to supply power to it by connecting the amp power on (Blue/White I think) in the dash to a power source (such as red on your stereo harness) so it comes on with the key. If you do have the amplifier, that's why you have no sound.
