I need to know just how much backsplash to buy for a kitchen wall it is 9 ft 7ins X 1FT 2INS and 3 FT 2 INS X 1 FT. and if I need 2 boxes how would I order it in 1 square feet?

Hi Connie

Did you get that roof fixed? ;>)

You have to round these figures out a bit, and you always needs a few extra tiles in case of breaks or bad cuts.

So your 9ft 7 ins X 1ft 2ins is 10 foot x 1.5 feet is 15 square feet, or 1.66 square yards.

Your 3ft 2 ins x 1 ft is 3 square feet or .33 square yards.

Add the 2 together 1.66 plus .33 and as near as makes no matter, you want 2 square yards. I just had a quick check and wall tiles are packed in Square FEET. You need 18 Square Feet.

box ceramic wall tile Google Search

If you are careful, one box like this will do as it 17 square feet.

Description This cream-colored wall ceramic from Bravo has a glossy finish and is made for interior use. One box contains 136 3" x 6" tiles and covers 17 sq. ft.

Get yourself a notched trowel to put the adhesive on.

And a grouting squeegee to spread the grout.

And one of these to smooth the edge of the grout into the joints.

Another consideration is that some tiles are self spacing, but on others you need to use spacers to have a gap between them. Link in this article.

If you have to cut tiles, tile cutters are expensive, but the big box DIY stores will rent you one.

What is the normal fuel consumption rate of a 2001 v4 Toyota highlander ?

It is impossible to say because of all the variables involved=== Speed --terrain---climate conditions--load --city, country driving--drivers driving habits ( heavy footed , always on the brakes) road conditions --tyre size--tyre pressures--- current draw from the alternator ( extra radio gear )-- roof loads . basically if you get 10 litres / 100 klms it will be average . There are some good auto magazines that include fuel consumption when they discuss different vehicles.

Electric roof not working on bmwz3 tried it with ignition on our of gear and foot on break worked two days ago

Turn the key forward to the spot just before cranking, emergency break on, windows down (slightly or all the way, no difference), foot on break, roof unlatched and pushed back slightly. Once you push the roof up slightly, it should trigger a microswitch that allows the motor to turn on. If you listen closely, you can hear it. Can you hear the motor turning? If not, check the fuse and any microswitches. If they check good it could be the "motor." I say "motor" like that because its actually a pump to a hydraulic system. It sits in the trunk on the left wheel well. Its very easy to replace.
If you do hear the motor, go to the trunk and look at the system on the left wheel well. There is a hydraulic reservoir under the pump. If you cant see any fluid in there, that is your problem. To fill it, turn the T-handle on the pump counterclockwise. This will depressurize the system and also allow you to manually operate the roof. Next to the T-handle is a cap that requires an allen wrench to remove. Remove it and fill to the little dot inside a circle with hydraulic fluid. This can be a little trick to reach; I used a turkey baster!! After filling to appropriate level, put cap back on and then turn T-handle clockwise and secure it. Now operate the roof a few times with the button to build up some pressure. Now your roof should be operating properly!!

Audi 2005 A4 Cabrio...roof stuck partially down. How do I fix?

This has happened to my wife's 2004 A4 Convertible 2x's. I had to read the owner's manual several times to get the job done correctly (pages in the high 70's to low 80's) ...the following is offered from memory: The handle/tool needed to accomplish the task 'manually' is located in the fuse box on the LEFT SIDE of the dashboard. A small flat blade screwdriver will enable you to pry open the fuse cover & gain access to the handle/tool. Slight twist the tool and it comes out easily. Tool is a "T" shaped handle. Once you have the handle/tool IN HAND, simply turn the RED part (only) on the handle until it 'locks' in an open position. Leaves a small space on the handle. Can't recall if you go clockwise or counterclockwise, but it will be evident. Now...move both front seats forward and tilt them to gain access to rear seat. Remove the ski boot cover in middle of the rear seat and put aside. Then, 'click' the interior boot cover panel down to gain access to a 'hole' (about size of a 50 cent piece) in the top of the boot space. This hole allows you to insert (upward) the above mentioned tool into a lock/unlock mechanism in the rear deck just forward of the trunk. The tool needs to be jiggled to go 'all the way' will sense that. Once in, TURN the RED part of the handle to "LOCK" the handle into the mechanism. The tool will hang down by itself. My approach is to 'store' the roof in the open convertible position first. The front portion of the roof should be partially forward as that appears to 'release' a lever within the roof's up/down mechanism to allow you to raise the rear window portion. Thus, lift (with that friend) the rear window portion up and forward (takes some effort). The roof now has a kind of 'clamshell' appearance front & rear. The front may even flop forward but tht's OK. This step exposes the rear deck. Twist the tool to unlock the rear deck. It should click & release and a small space appears enabling you to use hands (that friend again) under it (the deck). Lift the deck up & back until the hydraulics kick in and keep the deck vertically open. Now you are ready to tackle the roof & rear window for storage under the rear deck cover. Get a friend, if possible to help with the lifting...remember, this is a "Manual" job! Once here, gently push back & lower the rear window portion of the roof into the open storage area simultaneously followed by the remainder of the roof itself. Watch fingers for possible pinching in the levers, etc., during this part of operation Hopefully you now have the roof & rear window stored in the area in front of trunk and be able to lower the rear deck to almost closed position. If so, go back to the tool and twist it to 'lock' the deck in place with roof stored. Remove tool from the ski storage area by reversing procedure above. Now comes the "Moment of Truth"! With the ignition turned on and car running, use the roof switch to bring the stored roof up and all the way to the closed position. Don't forget you must keep your finger on that switch until the operation completely finishes. Then, reverse the process to open & store the roof for a good blow dry (drive)!

My driver side foot well gets wet

If this only occurs during heavy rain you have a problem with the drains around the bulkhead. Alternatively the heater matrix could be leaking. Check to make sure you are not loosing coolant from the engine. If you find you are constantly topping up the coolant then heater matrix is suspect.

Loud whistle noise from roof rack

Take a thin utility cord. Tie it to one end of the front bar and wrap it repeatedly around the bar to the other end of the front bar (spaced about an inch per loop, working around anything attached to the rack) where you tie it tight. Can disrupt the airflow to break the noise - got rid of all of the noise from my rack. I used a 10 foot cord cost $1.60. Doesn't look as cool as a fairing, but much cheaper and no one will steal it from your car. And you don't have to move the bars so that you can't use them.
