Question about 1999 Porsche 911 Carrera

Still having issues w/ no battery access

On my '99 911-996 C2 - still can't find front hood release cable beneath bumper, nor under passenger side wheel well plastic housing, and no red terminal in fuse box to connect charger to. I did, however, gain access to engine compartment by locating the cable beneath the left tail light (pretty easy) and giving it a tug. Hooked up my battery charger and put the key in the ignition. Yea - all the lights came on. Tried to turn over the engine, it didn't start, and now no more lights. What have I done? What do I do? There still must be a way to the battery...

If all the lights came on you should be able to turn the alarm off with the keyless entry. From that you should be able to open the hood with the hood latch inside the car to the left of the driver seat.

How do I change right front head light


The 2008 CTS is the same as my 2009 CTS.
To access the any of the bulbs, you need to remove the bumper/grille assembly.
I just did mine and installed some aftermarket HID bulbs.
If you have some skill and patience, it will take you around an hour.
I'll try to remember all the steps, but I did find a video on youtube that shows it very well:
Remove the long plastic cover over the radiator, by unscrewing the 6 plastic clips. There some rubber molding attached, but you can just flip the cover over on top of the engine.
This exposes 2 10mm screws that can be removed - they'll look like they are attached to the grille. Don't remove them yet.
If front of each front tire in the edge of the wheel well, there are two plastic pins. The pins are actually two pieces, pry the center piece straight out about a quarter inch, then the whole pin can be popped out.
Under the front lower edge are 5-7 similar clips that need to be removed the same way. There about 15-20 of them under there, but you don't have to remove them all. I recall that two of them are upside down.
Now he scary part.... back to the wheel well. Get a flashlight. I recall the inner fender is under the bumper edge; it needs to be pulled out from behind the bumper. Then pull the inner fender backwards from the bumper; it's very stiff, but you need to pull it about 3/4" and look straight up through the gap. There is a 10mm screw, about one inch from the edge of the bumper/fender. This screw holds the bumper to the fender. Use a 10mm socket and a long extension to remove it. (do both sides)
Then you can firmly pull the side of the bumper sideways from the car.
There are 4 of those plastic pin/clips to removed under the hood, next to the headlight. Then you can remove the two 10mm screws under the hood, and the bumper can be lifted off.

Each of the headlight housings are held on by two 10mm screws and a 10mm nut. The is one electrical connector to unclip.

There are 3 covers on each housing. Each cover is held on by 3 8mm? screws. Your low beam is the top bulb.

Where under the hood is the horn located on a 2004 sunfire ?


Behind the plastic shroud under the front bumper, passenger side.



Easiest way to get to it is to take out the passenger side headlamp and look down, there will be a small flap of rubbery plastic. CAREFULLY pull out the clips and pull that out of the way, its right behind that.

I need info on how to replace the headlamp bulbs on my 2008 Chevy Malibu, can you help.


The procedure is very involved.It requires the removal of the front bumper fascia fasteners from the center and side of the headlamp to be removed.
  1. Remove the front bumper fascia fasteners from the center and side of the headlamp to be removed, full removal of the fascia is not necessary. Refer to Front Bumper Fascia Replacement.
  2. Gently pull the fascia forward to allow clearance to remove the headlamp assembly.
  3. You will also need to remove some of the fasteners at the front of the inner wheel well.
  4. The Front Bumper Fascia is the plastic cover over your front bumper.
  5. You may also have to remove the plastic cover that is located under the front of the hood over the radiator.It extends to both sides.

I neede to remove the headlights for my 2008 E 350 and need instructions. OIt appears that removing the front bumper is needed ? Thanks


Here's some instructions for removing bumper and headlights.

E-Class W211 front bumper removal (standard body style).

Tools needed:
- Automotive wheel ramps (Rhino ramps from Autozone).
- 1/4" drive socket set with 8mm and 10mm sockets.
- #20 torx bit.
- Floor jack, optional but useful.
- Flat blade screwdriver.

Instructions for bumper removal:

1) Turn front wheels full right to remove push-pin fastener at lower front corner of left wheel well plastic splash guard. It's difficult to remove this fastener once the car is up on the wheel ramps.

2) Turn front wheels full left to remove push-pin fastener at lower front corner of right wheel well plastic splash guard.

3) Drive car up on wheel ramps. Block rear tires. Open hood.

4) Remove lower mesh plastic grille. There are five attachment points on the top edge of the grille. You can get to three of them with your hand by reaching between the radiator and the back side of the grille. The two outer ones can be released with a screwdriver also reaching in between the grille and radiator. Once the plastic tabs are released, you can remove the grille by pulling it out from the front of the car.

5) Remove the plastic panel located immediately behind the bumper from the bottom of the engine compartment. This panel is held in place with nine sheet metal screws with a 8mm hex head. Five screws are on the bottom of the car and there are two screws in each wheel well at the inner lower edge. After removing all nine screws you can work the panel free.

6) Disconnect the cable from each fog light and remove both fog lights. They are held in place by two sheet metal screws with a #20 torx head.

7) Remove the side marker bulbs. The one on the passenger side turns clockwise to remove and the one on the driver side turns counter-clockwise.

8) Remove the temperature sensor from its socket on the driver side.

9) If you have a floor jack, raise the car at the jack point on the cross member below the engine. You do not want to raise it off the wheel ramps. But it helps to have more clearance above the tires to work in the front wheel wells.

10) Remove three of the plastic nuts holding the forward half of the plastic wheel well liner in place. It's not necessary to remove the plastic liner. You just need to loosen it up so that you can pull it away from the fender to gain access to the screw and bracket securing the bumper to the fender.

11) Pull back the wheel well liner and remove the sheet metal screw from the rear end of the metal bracket . There is only one sheet metal screw (#20 torx head) holding this bracket in place. Don't attempt to remove the bracket yet. I used a #20 torx bit in a 1/4" socket with a 6-inch extension for a 1/4" drive wrench. The head of the screw faces the ground.

12) Remove the 5mm bolts (8mm hex head) holding the bumper to the headlight assembly between the small lens and large lens (both sides).

13) Remove the two 6mm bolts (10mm hex head) on either side of the large grille area opening.

14) Remove the two 6mm bolts (10mm hex head) securing the bumper to the bottom edge of the crashbar. You can access these bolts through the front where you removed the plastic mesh grille.

15) Remove the three 5mm bolts (8mm hex head) holding each headlight assembly in place. Two longer bolts are on top. One at the rear outer corner and one at the front inner corner. The third bolt is accessed from the bottom. It's in the area above the fog lamps. You don't need to disconnect the headlight cables and remove the assembly. But it helps to allow the headlight assembly to "float" freely while you disengage the bumper from the fender.

16) At this point all of the fasteners holding the bumper in place have been removed. The only thing left to do is to remove the two brackets "clamping" the bumper cover to the lower front edge of the front fenders. Before you do this, position some cardboard boxes, bags of packing material, six packs of paper towels, or other suitable items to protect the bumper in case it falls off the car.

17) The bracket holding the bumper cover to the fender has a "pin" that slips into a slot at the front edge of the bumper cover. There is a matching slot near the front edge of the fender. It's not possible to see this pin from the bottom of the car. Use a flat blade screwdriver to pry the bracket away from the bumper/fender and towards the center of the car. The bracket will "hinge" on the pin at the front end of the bracket. After you swing the bracket away from the bumper, you need to slide it forward to remove it from the slot in the bumper cover and fender. You will probably scratch some paint off of this bracket with the screwdriver. I recommend repainting the scratched areas of the bracket before reinstalling it.

18) After removing the bracket from each side of the car you need to deal with the small plastic "hook" holding the bumper cover to the very front tip of the fender. This hook is an integral part of the bumper cover. Disengaging this hook from the fender is probably the most difficult step of removing the bumper. Simultaneously raise the head light assembly slightly, push the leading edge of the fender outward slightly, and push the bumper cover inward toward the headlight assembly. Don't get too aggressive with the fender. It's aluminum and you will make a real mess if you apply too much pressure on the fender. It took me about 20 minutes to free each side from this hook. It should take you less time, since you now know that the hook exists!

19) Gently pull the bumper forward and away from the car. This is one step where a second person would be helpful. But I did manage to do this step alone. There is a "pulley" like attachment point on each side just below the fender/bumper seam.

To re-install the bumper, reverse the order of the steps above. When re-installing the bracket between the bumper cover and fender, I smeared a thin coating of car wash soap on the bracket to facilitate snapping the bracket back into place.

How do you take bumper of vw passat 2003 to replace radiator


Tools Required
--------------------------------
T25 Torx Screwdriver
Phillips Head Screwdriver (if equipped with fog lights)
Small Flathead screwdriver
Wide Flathead Screwdriver


Bumper Removal
--------------------------------

1. Jack the car up on both sides and remove the front wheels. Use Jackstands and please observe all safety procedures. I'm sure it's possible to do this by turning the wheels to each side as you work in the wheel wells, but this was easiest for me to do.

2. Remove the hood release lever.
Pry out the plastic guide on the front of the grill, and looking directly down on the hood release lever attachment point, you'll see a metal clip. Using your small screwdriver, flip that clip up so it's off of the plastic lever and place your wide screwdriver in the Y of the plastic, turn the large screwdriver to spread the Y off the pins that it is holding on to. This can be VERY frustrating, so take your time. If you need to remove the latch cover in frustration, it's a $6 part from Liberty (experience)

3. Remove the front grill.
Just a T25 torx screw on each side and clips underneath, be careful not to break the clips as you pull it off. If you have an aftermarket grill you might have to pull through or cut off your double-sided tape

4. Remove the 3 lower grills (they just pop out, the middle one is a little tricky, just take your time and make sure all the plastic clips release)

5. Remove fog lights (if equipped) 3 screws each and disconnect

5. Remove the 4 T25 screws from the top of the bumper (under where the grill just sat)

6. Remove 4 T25 Screws from each wheel well, one is pointed straight up, you'll have to feel under the wheel well where the bumper meets the fender to find it.

7. Climb under the car and remove the 3 flat head screws (they just twist out)

8. With your helper, pull the bumper straight towards you from each side, and remove the connections from the side markers. The bumper should now be free.

Installation is basically the reverse of removal HOWEVER, there are tabs on each side of the car that line up with tabs on the bumper, be absolutely sure that these line up, they will center the bumper for you and hold it on while you screw it in.

Removing Bumper strip
-----------------------------------

1. Looking at the back of the bumper that you just removed, find the 4 tabs and 4 hooks holding the strip on. The hooks are down by the side marker holes, and the tabs are on the front of the bumper.

2. You'll see a black pin holding one of the hooks in place, if you push with a small screwdriver on the bottom of this pin, you'll see another, smaller pin come up, pull this pin out as far as you can and the large pin will pop right out.

3. With your screwdriver, carefully pry back the tabs and pull on the strip from the front of the bumper, releasing it in sections.

4. After all the tabs are removed, pull the strip away from the bumper (as if you were pulling it from off from the front of the car, and it should come right off)

I hope help you woth this. Good luck (remember rated this help).
