If it doesnt have zippers to remove and refit the back window you need to get a motor trimmer to sew it in as it requires an expert to do it and you may want to make it so it can be zipped in and out in case it happens again

What glue do I need to use to adhere rear window to convertible top? It is pulling away and I cannot afford a new top just because the glass is pulling away.


You need to cut a small piece of the plastic liner at the bottom. cut about 1/4 inch of just the plastic. not the liner. If you score the plastic half way through then you can snap it off. I put a little glue on the fabric so it does not unravel. THen you need to use a plastic hammer and a piece of wood or plastic and snap the liner back in. It fits in a channel and needs to be snapped in and work your way around until it is all snapped in.

Where is the oil filter on a 2006 cobalt


Remove oil filler cap and dipstick. Pull up to remove large balck plastic engine cover. Tabs are at rear left and lower front right (facing engine). Large (1-1/16") Black plastic hex cap is cover for oil filter, fron of engine between motor and transfer case. Best to use special tool that fits 3/8" socket extension(about $12 - Search fro Lisle 14700 Wrench) since adjustable wrench doesn't fit well. Replace cartrideg and O-ring, then reinstall in reverse order.

When replacing the drivers side rear window regulator I broke all of the panel fasteners getting the door panel off. I need new fasteners. they are large black plastic retainers.


You should be able to get those at any parts supplies or even a body shop. Dealer should also be able to supply those with little trouble

Rear wiper linkge BMWe46 touring 2003 year


Not sure about this exact car but 99% of all wiper motors are retained with a nut ythart lives under the base of the wiper arm and with three or 4 nuts from the rear of the motor. Take the wiper arm off, possibly requiring the use of a 10 mm wrench, and you will see a large nut, remove this. See if the wioper mote is accessed from the trunk, most likly under a clip in panal, split the electrical connector and remove the nuts holding the motor on. You will see that the collar that had the nut accessed from above will be stiff to move on the wiper shaft. Work it off, scotch brite the shaft, run a small wire brush down the typically plastic tube, lube the shaft with chassis grease or white grease, check that it moves freely in the collar and reassemble

good luck

Removal of rear window


The bad news is when the cable comes loose it normally means some plastic retaining part has broken, so you will need a new or at least a replacement regulator (which is the cable mechanism that rolls the window up and down). This will bolt both to the door and to the window. I would leave the window in the door and just tape it up once you have it unbolted from the regulator.
