I have to ask a dumb question, did you bleed the brakes? Most likely an air bubble in the system yet. Sometimes the bubble will work out over time but I would bleed them again.

Saturn sl remove mudguard

It is secured in all four corners by self-destructing plastic mushroom fasteners. Once you remove them, they will not go back in right. The best thing to do to replace them is go to your favorite local auto parts store and get some bolts with speed clips. Put the clips in or around the holes the mushrooms went in, put the bolts through the holes in the air dam/splashguard. Or, just don't replace it.

Replacing tail/brake/turn signal/backup lamp bulbs (page 59-60 of owners manual)


The tail lamp, brake lamp, turn

signal lamp and backup lamp bulbs

are located in the same portion of

the tail lamp assembly. Follow the

same steps to replace either bulb.

1. Make sure headlamp switch is in

OFF position and open trunk and

remove two plastic mushroom nuts,

three push pins and the plastic

cover from inside the trunk to

access the lamp assembly.

2. Carefully pull the carpet away to

expose the lamp assembly hardware.

3. Remove four nut and washer

assemblies and the lamp assembly

from the vehicle.

4. Remove the bulb socket by

rotating it counterclockwise, then

pulling it out of the lamp assembly.

5. Pull the bulb from the socket and
push in the new bulb.

6. Install the bulb socket into the lamp assembly by rotating it clockwise.

7. Install the lamp assembly on the vehicle with four nut and washer

assemblies ensuring the washers on the nuts are flush with the body to

prevent water from entering the trunk.

8. Carefully push the carpet back in to place and install the plastic cover
inside the trunk with three push pins and two plastic mushroom nuts.

How to change a EGR valve

As I recall this looks like a morelle mushroom, big as a man's thumb, and is mounted vertically near the top rear of the bell housing area. Remove the battery cover and the negative battery cable. Unplug the thing, unscrew the two bolts, clean both metal surfaces of all gasket material, put some gasket goop on both surfaces of the new gasket, put the new one in, screw down the bolts, hook up the wiring, etc. I actually paid a small shop to put one in mine, I provided the parts. When I went to pick it up the new gasket was still laying on the seat, I asked the guy about it and he told me the old gasket was good. I could not believe that a paid mechanic would pass on a new gasket when replacing anything. The SES light was still on, I drove it home and did the job myself the next day doing the necessary cleaning and using the new gasket. It has been two years the SES light has never come back on and my girlfriend still drives the car. I never used that shop again.

Put new brake pads on, now brakes were smoking. Sticking caliper?

They are rather easy to replace, disconnect the brake hose, and remove the caliper as you did replacing the pads. You'll need to then bleed the caliper until clear fluid, with no air bubbles come from the bleeder screw. Check that you don't have a collapsed brake hose, not letting the fluid return to the master cylinder.

Sorry, how do you change the front passenger side wheel bearing assembly on 1991 honda accord exr

There are 4 bolts on the back of the knuckel holding the wheel bearing in. The hub is pressed into the wheel bearing, so it must be removed. you will need a 10mm 12 point socket to remove the bolts. Once those bolts are out, it may still be rusted in there, if thats the case, you will need to beat it out with a hammer. BUT be careful because you dont want to ruin the bearing or the splines on the hub by mushrooming the end.

How to change stud in rear wheel hub assembly. i need to know how to change the stud in the rear wheel hub assembly, and how do i go about taking it apart

Remove tire and wheel, remove caliper and brake rotor. DO NOT apply the brakes while the caliper is loose. Hit stud you want to replace hard with a LARGE HEAVY hammer to drive it out towards vehicle. DO NOT use a light hammer. It will distort the stud and possibly mushroom the end making it very difficult to remove. Once the stud is loose, you may or may not have enough room to get it out of the hole. You may need to pull the hub loose from the rear suspension to gain more room. Remove the stud. Place new stud in hole. Put a stack of washers over the stud, grease the threads, and using a new FLAT nut with the same threads as the lug nut, tighten until the stud is pulled all the way into the hub. Remove the flat nut, reattach the hub assembly (if you needed to take it loose) and reinstall the brakes.

Hi jcallihan. If your truck doesnt have hydraboost then the problem will be a bad vacuum pump. This pump is located to the drivers side of the engine just below the a/c compressor. It looks similar to a mushroom and is belt driven. This may look ok but if the diaphram is busted inside it will not create vacuum for the brakes to work properly.
