It is not likely that you can repair a camera lens. if the lens was less than 400 dollar or Euro then it is problaby cheaper to buy a new one. any repair shold be carried out by a lab, any dust or fingerprints inside the lens surfaces will render it useless also a lot of lense are glued together so that they do not shake apart as this will effect focus so it may not be possible to get into this anyway.

The backup camera seems a bit hazy even after cleaning the lens anyone else find this


Some webcams have a 'focus ring' to adjust the focus. I do not know if auto backup cams have such a thing built right onto the camera lens. Adjust that focus until the pic is clear.

Durango 2002 I got gas leaking from my tank on the top by the sending unit so I dropped the tank and looked over everything and only found that the reagulator was kind of loose to me but it leaks kind of...


If it is leaking around the top at the sender / pump unit then it may be the gasket or the ring that retains the unit has not been fitted correctly and there is not enough tension on the seal.. Some units have a notched ring that is placed under a casilated ring and turned increasing pressure as it turns. Some have a series of screws to do the job .

I don't know how to change the head light on my 1997 Jeep grand Cherokee. there doesn't seem to be any screws to loosen the light.


Hi Clint,

I just want you to know that you are not crazy or blind!

The reason you cannot find any screws is because you are dealing with a snap-together vehicle.
If you only want to replace the bulb, you can reach around the radiator support and twist the bulb retainer to remove it and the bulb. If you are wanting to replace the ENTIRE headlamp assembly, follow the instructions below.

REMOVAL

Grasp lower edge of headlamp lens and pull straight back (away) from Grille Opening Reinforcement (GOR) . Disengage lower adjuster pivots from lens assembly.
Grasp upper edge of headlamp lens. Pull straight back (away) from grille opening reinforcement (GOR). Disengage upper adjuster pivot from lens assembly.
Rotate bulb lock ring counter clockwise. and remove ring and bulb from lens.
INSTALLATION

Replace by seating the assembly in the lamp housing and turning the lock ring 1/8 turn clockwise to secure.
Align upper adjust pivot into headlamp opening and snap into place.
Snap lower adjuster pivots into place.

I have a 2001 jeep grand cherokee.I dropped the trans pan and found a broken ring.The suv is changing out at high rpm's and i am wondering could this be the problem because it was'nt doing it...


hello angela.... the transmission is the most complex part of the automobile. go to any AAMCO shop and they will take a look at it and give you a free estimate. you are correct to assume that the broken ring is behind your problem...replacing that ring requires special tools and knowhow, it is definitely not a home repair.

When you turn the headlights on everything works but the headlights. If you hold the dimmer switch in the brights will come on. When you let it go the lights go out


Have you tried to change the headlights?

REMOVAL & INSTALLATION Sealed Beam NOTE: If vehicle is equipped with headlamp doors turn the headlight switch ON. Open the hood and locate the power distribution center. This center is located in the front of the left front strut tower. Remove the cover from the center and remove the Headlamp Close Relay. This will prevent the headlamp doors from closing to provide easier servicing. Turn the headlight switch to OFF, then perform this repair.
  1. Remove the headlight bezel.
  2. Unhook the spring from the headlight retaining ring if so equipped.
  3. Unscrew the retaining ring and remove it. NOTE: Do not disturb the two long aiming screws. Conventional and Halogen headlamp sealed beams units are interchangeable in pairs, but it is recommended that they not be mixed together (one halogen and one conventional). It is fine to upgrade from conventional bulbs to halogen, but do not change from halogen bulbs to conventional bulbs, especially if the vehicle came equipped with halogen bulbs.
  4. Unplug the old sealed beam from the engine electrical wiring harness.
  5. Extract the old bulb from its mounting bracket. To install:
  6. Connect the replacement bulb and install it into the receptacle (check operation of headlight before completing repair).
  7. Install the retaining ring and secure it in place with the retaining screws. Connect the spring.
  8. Install the headlight bezel.
Aero Headlamp Aero headlamp systems use replaceable halogen bulbs that are mounted in aerodynamic, molded plastic lens reflector assemblies. NOTE: Lens fogging is a normal condition and does not require service, as moisture will vent from tubes behind the lens on Aero headlamp-type system. EXCEPT PREMIER AND MONACO It may be necessary to remove the entire headlamp assembly if enough access cannot be gained otherwise.
  1. Locate and remove the wire connector behind the headlamp assembly in the engine compartment. It may be necessary to remove certain items in the engine compartment to gain access to the bulb wires.
  2. Rotate the bulb retaining ring counterclockwise 1?4 turn and remove the ring, bulb and bulb holder from the lens assembly. The bulb holder has alignment notches. NOTE: Do not touch the bulb with bare fingers or any possibly oily surface, since reduced bulb life may result! Fig. 1: To remove the light bulb, first unplug the headlight electrical connector, then . . . 86726p13.jpg
    Fig. 2: . . . remove the light bulb socket retaining ring 86726p14.jpg
    Fig. 3: Rotate the light bulb socket 1?4 turn counter-clockwise, then pull it straight out of the lens assembly 86726p15.jpg
    To install:
  3. Wearing gloves or holding the replacement bulb with a cloth rag to keep oil off of the bulb surface, insert the bulb into the rear hole of the headlamp assembly. Make certain that the alignment grooves and tabs line up, push the light bulb into the assembly until seated flush, then turn the bulb clockwise 1?4 turn.
  4. Plug the electrical light bulb wiring harness into the new light bulb. Install any items removed from the engine compartment.
PREMIER AND MONACO Unlike the other vehicles covered by this manual, the removal and installation of the headlamp bulbs in the Premier and Monaco models requires the extraction of the entire headlamp lens assembly.
  1. Remove the grille-to-headlamp assembly attaching screws.
  2. Disconnect the headlamp aiming cable from the aiming screw end.
  3. Remove the headlamp assembly attaching bolts from above and behind the lamp assembly and separate the lamp assembly from the vehicle.
  4. Unplug the headlamp wire connector. NOTE: Do not touch the bulb with bare fingers or any possibly oily surface, since reduced bulb life may result!
  5. Rotate the socket counterclockwise 1?4 turn and pull the socket from the back of the lens assembly. Fig. 4: Remove the bezel retaining screws to loosen the headlamp assembly - Premier and Monaco 86726g91.gif
    Fig. 5: Detach the headlamp wire connector - Premier and Monaco 86726g92.gif
    Fig. 6: Once the headlamp assembly has been removed from the vehicle, the various light bulbs can easily be removed - Premier and Monaco 86726g93.gif
    To install:
  6. Wearing gloves or holding the replacement bulb with a cloth rag to keep oil off of the bulb surface, insert the bulb into the rear hole of the headlamp assembly. Make certain that the alignment grooves and tabs line up, push the light bulb into the assembly until seated flush, then turn the bulb clockwise 1?4 turn.
  7. Plug the headlamp wire connector back into the headlamp bulb.
  8. Install the assembly into the vehicle and secure in place with the mounting bolts.
  9. Connect the headlamp aiming cable to the aiming screw end.
  10. Install the grille-to-headlamp assembly attaching screws.
