Squeeze them together and pull them off at the same time or cut them off since you need to replace them

My 93 saab 900s only has third and fourth gears.

I know exactly what happened. Look at the shifter linkage at the transmission. It's under the hood, close to the firewall, directly forward of the shifter knob. There's a black plastic bushing or connecting piece which broke and became separated from a 5-6mm diameter steel rod. You will see it clearly if you look under the hood while someone else moves the shifter knob around from inside the car. Buy a small metal hose clamp (~1 inch diameter or less, coolant hose clamp, same size as the clamp on the coolant reservoir). Slide it over the steel rod, push the rod back into the broken plastic piece firmly, and slide the clamp over the broken plastic part, and tighten it up. You should have all 5 gears back. It happened to my 1997 900SE, and this improvised repair has been holding up fine for two years now. Good Luck.

I have a 2004 Chevy Classic Malibu and was wondering on the coolant resevoir it has has a hose at the top where should that be connected or what is it for? When I put antifreeze in it runs out of the hose...

there should be one small hose going to the radiator from the resevor thats if the radiator has a cap on it if not then there will be 3 hoses two going to either the motor and the radiator and one that just hangs down so if any over flow from the radiator does not blow all over the motor.

Where is evaporator hose on 2001 dodge dakota?clean water on floor .

Condensed water from the AC drains out through the fire wall. Check that small tube/hose for plugs. Some models just have a hard plastic tube sticking out and when the seal on the firewall goes bad, the water drains back into the passenger compartment. Add a piece of hose to that plastic tube so it drips down away from the firewall.

Heater hose broke off at firewall.there is a plastic connector which I can't get off. it spins but does'nt back do you remove this connector?

There is a removal tool to release plastic locking tabs at back near fire wall, I had the same problem with my 01 silverado I used a 4" piece of hacksaw blade held with vice grips and cut aluminum cover and pried it apart to release, be careful not to cut heater core tube.

Hose broke off the firewall need to know how to get it off to replace.. it has a white thing that was attached to the firewall it broke off in the hose we cant get the piece off the firewall to replace

When you say hose - is it a large water type hose? The hoses that connect near the firewall would be heater hoses. Is there a piece stuck in the end of the hose that came off? That would indicate a damaged heater core and the only repair is to replace it from inside the vehicle.

If it is a smaller hose it could be vacuum tubing that operates equipment inside the cab. A white piece on that would indicate the vacuum port that the tube was connected to and that part would likely need to be replaced.

My 98 malibu gas gauge has gotten stuck under the little projectile. how do i take the dash apart to move it back above the little stick:

The easiest way is to drill a little hole in the clear plastic that you look thru. Run a small piece of stiff wire in and spin it back around I have done this many times otherwise you have to pull the whole cluster which isn't any fun.

it is mounted in back on top of the motor on the passenger side, find your resavior on the firewall and follow the large hose and there it is.

98 Safari vent selection failure

you're right commuter, it is a vacuum hose leak or disconnect.

start from the selector switch. take the bundle of hoses at the back of the controller and feel if there is a vacuum source.( the engine should be idling).

if there is then it could be a faulty selector.

if there is none. trace the hose that went outside of the firewall.

that is the vacuum source and you should be able to trace it to a vacuum tank. look for broken hoses or rusted tank.

good luck

tnx 4 using fixya,
