How do I replace 3rd brake light on 2009 cls550

this is a simple 15-20 min job with minimal tools needed , the list

1 medium flat head screwdriver or pocket knife
1 T25 torx head driver/start driver
glass cleaner and paper towels
1 new 3rd brake light ( a given) w211 03-05 part number A211820 15 56

Just pop out the 9 black plasitc caps with the screwdriver and remove . then remove the cap in each side hinge ,it is easier if you pop off the small latch on the trunk hinge plasic covers as well. Take out the 6 star screws holding on the hard plastic trunk cover over the latch. the carpet piece now just pulls down. you do need to pull it towards the front of the car due to the handles on the inside not really an issue it just slips down , then disconnect the button and then remove.the small light I just push it thru and then pulled it back thru carefully its more difficult to disconnect. Now the 3rd brake light has 2 plastic tabs the stick out. you need to push these to the outward you can see how they hold on then carefully remove the back black LED part . you will need to wiggle it and then slide it to the Left side and drop out the Right end first. Then disconnect on Left side. took about 15 mins-20 mins first time.
The part comes complete with new a Red light cover. It also seems to have a better looking gasket than the one that came on it. The hardest part is removing the old lens cover. I used a screw driver and pressed in the soft metal tabs on the front side you can see, then just used my finger on the back side of the tab to let it slip outward working from one end to the next. keep you new lens oriented in the right direction when putting the new one one. You do not bend any tabs on the new one. make sure you clean the surface real well , so It can adhere and create a water tight seal. slip the plug in and then put the LED portion on sliding it in on the Left side fist. then flipping up over the grey tabs then make sure you pull the black tabs back to the center I pushed in on the light from the outside to help keep a tight fit. Works great. you can only check it if you turn the ignition on like your going to start the car.

Changing Saturn Vue 2003 battery

The battery cover has 3 screws, taking it off is hard because the corner is partly covered by the cars body. You must pull the back up, then use some force to get that front right side up. You have side connectors on the battery, remove the black first, then the red. There are also 4 bolts on the bottom. You need to lay under the car and use a long extension to reach them. Replace with ACDelco battery using the numbers off your old one.

I have a 2000 VW Golf and am having problems starting it. I had the starter checked it was fine I was told that the ignition was bad so I replaced it, the car still will not start. Now they are telling me...

will not blame anyone 1st have you checked the black fuse box under the hood?if not,then look for main relay box(black) remove the cover,then look under the cover lid for relay locations. find starter relay.have some one Put their finger on top of the black square starter relay,then you turn your key switch to "on" does the relay that the fingers on click? if so,its'good. you also have what garages call a fuseable's a hard black peice of rubber thats located in between the starter and the battery. but 1ST LETS COVER THE MAIN ISSUES WITH NO START! IS BATTERY FULLY CHARGED?A MUST! WHEN YOUR CAR IS ALL THE WAY IN PARK AND YOU TURN THE KEY TO START,NOTHING AS MUCH AS A CLICK? DID YOU HEAR A CLICK? GO TOWARDS A BAD STARTER CONNECTION,OR BAD STARTER.ARE STARTER BOLTS TIGHT? IS BATTERY TERMINALS TIGHT,THINK I ASKED THIS EARLIER BUT JUST 2 B SURE.

Jump the battery

What do you need to know? Positive to positive neg to neg. ON the Grand prix it is hard to get to the terminals on the battery. Hook the positive clamp to the postive bolt covered with the red plastic cover near the battery. Neg to the metal part of the engine.

Haven a hard time changing my low beam for my 2004 tdi vw jetta

This should not be very difficult. Remove the back cover of the light. Twist the old bulb and pull out. Remove plug. plug new one in and twist into place. Replace cover.

The battery side is a very tight squeeze, you may need to remove the battery. But, I was able to do it by just taking off the battery cover.

Replacing AC/heating fan -94 MB 300 TDT

The heater fan is located under the plastic panel at the bottom of the windscreen. To change it start off by lifting the bonnet until it's completely vertical (lift it open then press the "Tabs" on the bonnet hinges), next pull off the rubber seal that runs across the bulkhead. Undo the x head screws that secure the plastic panel, there are also 2 white plastic clips which just pullout towards the engine (they may have aleady been lost if the cars ever had a new wiper motor fitted). Once the the plasic panel is out of the way, remove the wiper mechanism and below it you will see a curved black plasic panel. The heater motor is below that. It's held by 3X 7mm bolts on the left side. Good luck!
