The big nut spins counter clock wise. you have to put your pulley bolts back on and make sure they are tight. leave belt on so that you have more resistance to pull against when tring to loosen the nut put a bar inbetween the pulley bolts so it won't slip off and then loosen that big nut looking thing and you should have it from there. to the same thing in reverse order to install it

SOURCE: 2002 2500 Silverado tailgate handle will not release catches

You will need to remove the trim piece the is under the release handle. Be carefull those things tend to break the little tabs that hold them on. Anyway pop (pry) it off with a screwdriver. Once it is off you can see that the little clips that hold the rods to the handle assy are broke. These clips are color coded. Most likely yellow or green. You might be able to get them at say Pep Boys or some place like that but they might make you buy an assortment package , then you get clips you will never use. Good luck, hope this is helpfull.

All I can do is suggest as my 'Vette's are older.

If my research is correct, I did find that the decklid latch mechanism is released by a cable. The cable probably has stuck in the cable sheath, due to years of neglect, (Failure to periodically lube the cable. Hint/hint)

You need to manually release the decklid mechanism.
Now bear with me, as again, my 'Vette's are older, ('70 and '76), and their seats tilt forward.

If you can tilt the passenger seat forward, perhaps you can get in there and lube this cable through it's sheath. (Use penetrating oil at first. I would then remove the cable, and clean it, then lube it, after getting the decklid open. Lube? White Lithium in a spray can)

Then try to pull the latch mechanism in the direction the cable would pull it, to release it.
(The cable may be broken?)

Yes! Whoever does this feat of magic, of getting to that decklid mechanism, will look like a contortionist! Hit the jacuzzi afterwards! lol!

Hi. Here's the proceudere on how to replace the water pump of your 97 Chevy Cavalier.


•1
Drain the cooling system. Place a large oil drain container under the drain fitting located on the bottom of the radiator. Turn the drain fitting counterclockwise until fluid is draining from the radiator. Use a pair of pliers to turn the drain fitting if you cannot turn it by hand. Turn the fitting clockwise to tighten it after all of the fluid has drained from the radiator.
•2
Remove the cooling fan. Disconnect the electrical connection from the fan motor. Remove the bolts holding the fan assembly to the radiator support with a ratchet wrench. Pull the fan assembly up from the engine compartment and remove it.
•3
Remove the serpentine belt. Place a wrench over the belt tensioner and rotate the tensioner to release the tension on the belt. Pull the belt off the pulleys and remove it from the vehicle.
•4
Remove the water pump pulley. Place a screwdriver behind the pulley to lock it in place while removing the pulley mounting bolts with a ratchet wrench.
•5
Disconnect the coolant hoses running to the water pump.
•6
Remove the water pump mounting bolts with a ratchet wrench or wrench and remove the water pump from the vehicle.
•7
Clean the mating surfaces of the engine block and new water pump with a towel saturated with lacquer thinner.
•8
Apply a thin layer of RTV sealer to both sides of the new water pump gasket and place the gasket on the new water pump.
•9
Place the water pump against the engine block and finger tighten the water pump mounting bolts to hold the pump in place. Tighten the bolts with a torque wrench to 18 foot-pounds.
•10
Place the pulley on the water pump and install the water pump pulley mounting bolts with a ratchet wrench.
•11
Attach any hoses previously disconnected from the water pump.
•12
Install the serpentine belt. Route the belt over the pulleys according to the routing diagram in the engine compartment. Place a wrench over the belt tensioner and rotate the tensioner to tighten the tension on the belt.

Condenser fan...how do you remove it?


Honda Accord are equipped with dual cooling fans in the engine bay.The primary fan's job is to pull air across the radiator; the secondary fan draws air across the air conditioning condenser.
The procedure to replace the condenser fan is as follows:-- Raise the hood and disconnect the negative battery cable using a battery terminal wrench. Shine a flashlight down onto the condenser fan assembly to locate the wiring harness to the fan motor and the three bolts holding the fan assembly in place.
Disconnect the wiring harness from the fan motor and move it to the side.Remove the bolts from the top and bottom of the fan assembly, located in the shroud, with the socket set.
Lift the old fan assembly upward and out of the engine well carefully. Avoid catching it on any wiring or other engine components.Lower the new fan assembly into position and thread the bolts in. Reconnect the wiring harness and negative battery cable in reverse of removal.
Thanks. Keep updated for any more query. You can rate this solution and show your appreciation.
