I ran over a a large piece of concrete in wish it scrapped the bottom I my vehicle leading to radiator fluid leaking out. The leak seems to be coming from a plastic piece that goes around the radiator...


there are two screws on the sides of the that plastic plate (it helps to guide air through the radiator) and you should be able to see where the damage is. you should be able to replace the radiator.

1993 Chevy S10 Blazer Serpentine Belt replacement


You use a breaker bar to move the tensioner, remove the belt and use the tensioner to put it back. You draw the belt and pulleys on a sheet of paper before removing, otherwise there should be a small diagram of the belt and pulley positions on the fan shroud or radiator support.

I have a 1999 vw passat and i need to remove the radiator in order to change the fan. how do i remove the radiator?


Well, there is a catch 22 to your plan. In order to remove the radiator you have to remove the fan first. Check around the housing for the fan, you should find plastic pressure clips that hold the fan in place. Release the clips and you should be able to lift the fan housing and shroud out or drop it through to the bottom of the vehicle. To remove the radiator you have to remove the fan shroud and fan in order to locate and remove the retaining bolts for the radiator. There are usually 2 on the bottom of the Radiator sometimes accessible from the bottom of the vehicle and 2 near the top of the radiator, usually covered by the fan shroud.

How to change a radiator on a 1996 ford taurus


  1. Step 1 Drive your Ford Taurus up a set of ramps onto a pair of jack stands, if it is a 1996 model or newer. Remove the lower splash shields. For 1986 through 1995 models, you can remove all necessary components from above.
  2. Step 2 Begin by disconnecting the negative battery terminal and draining the radiator into a transportable container. Open the plastic draincock on the lower rear of the radiator and crack the radiator cap.
  3. Step 3 Remove the overflow tube from the coolant recovery bottle and disconnect it from the radiator. On SHO model engines, remove the recovery bottle as well. Next unscrew the shroud and remove it from the retaining clips. Disconnect the wires to the fan motor, and remove the fan assembly and shroud in one piece.
  4. Step 4 Squeeze the hose clamp ends together on the radiator side, and remove the upper and lower hoses. For automatic transaxle models, use either the custom Ford disconnect tool T82L-9500-AH or two crescent wrenches to remove the transmission coolant lines.
  5. Step 5 Disconnect the radiator supports. 1986 through 1992 models will have two upper retaining screws for 3.0 liter and SHO engines. 3.8 liter engines will have two driver's side hex nuts and two passenger side screws. All other models have either the upper screws or the combination of right hand hex nuts and left hand screws.
  6. Step 6 Tilt the radiator backwards toward the engine and lift it out. Fit the new radiator into the support and replace the support screws and nuts. Reattach the hoses and wires in reverse order.
  7. Step 7 Flush the new radiator with either water or a commercial flush treatment. Connect your battery terminals and replace the coolant and let the engine idle for 5 to 10 minutes with the heater on and the radiator cap removed. Top off the coolant as necessary.
Thank you,
Lee

My 1998 Chevy Silverado has coolant leaking from the radiator at the small metal fitting at the top drivers side of the rad. Is the a seal that can be replaced or does the entire rad need to be replaced?


There's not usually a seal for these, the metal is commonly molded into the plastic sides of the radiator.. Remove the radiator tube and inspect the plastic around the fitting for cracks. If you find cracks in the plastic, then you know your answer. If it's leaking from around the radiator hose you could try replacing the clamp with a hose clamp that you can tighten with a screw driver.

My guess is the plastic is cracked there, and the radiator needs replaced, but you should inspect it first of course.

Good luck

2002 Blazer Door Panel retaining clips - replacement


First check visually and make sure they are broken. If they are not use needle nose pliers to start them into the holes and push them back into place. If that won't work go to your favorite parts store and buy a removal tool for the push pins. Remove the entire door panel. Replace any broken push pins with new ones and reinstall them as above. If the truck is not worth all that trouble buy a few self drilling self tapping screws and screw it back on. Good Luck.

2003 chevy s10 blazer back hatch wont open


This is how to replace it on a 1996 Blazer 4dr.

First, go buy the part you need at Rockauto. The link is for a 1996, but make sure you order it for your vehicle. Just do a search for a Window Actuator Rod Retainer. Rock Auto requires you order a pair of these, so make sure you order two. Each one has two of them in there so you will have 3 extras.
Window Actuator Rod Retainers - RockAuto.com

To open the window in the mean time while you are waiting for the part, do the following.
1. Remove the two screws on the door handle so you can pull back the door panel.
2. Pull back panel on top in the middle where it rises.
3. Reach in with a screw driver or your fingers to push down the lever. It's a metal piece on the left side against the wall to the inside of the blazer.
4. Open window and tailgate and remove screws on the sides of the tailgate. There is one on each side. Make sure it is the one fartest out and on the plastic panel.
5. Once the screws are removed, pull up on half the panel that is farthest out from the truck. Slide out away from the truck. The panel should come off with a little effort. Do not pull up on the panel closest to the truck, you will break the hooks that hold it in. I broke two on mine. The panel will slide away from the truck pretty easily.
6. Remove the screws holding the middle metal panel down. There are about 12 screws. They are the 9/32 socket screws.
7. Pull the metal panel up, first dislodge the metal poles connected to the two white clips on each side in the center of the panel.
8. You will now see your actuator with the broken blue clip.
9. Pop off the blue retainer from the actuator. This will take some effort but it will pop off. (here's where you can replace the actuator if it's not making a sound)
10. Place one end of the retainer into the loose metal piece that rotates (left arrow in third picture) and then pop the other end back on to the actuator.
11. Replace the metal panel and clip the poles back into the white clips.
12. Make sure your door handle rod is clipped into the lock before you close the tailgate. If not, you have to work at opening it again by sliding you arm down between the plastic panel and it's not easy.
13. Replace everything. Before you close the door, make sure the door handle works and make sure the actuator is connected.
14. You should now be able to use your tailgate window again!

I am taking a guess your trying to remove the tailgate panel to fix this problem???

Removing rusted shroud bolts from a 2004 Mazda 3.


Funny that I ran into the same thing a few hours ago. I started on the driver's side screws first. The two screws on that side broke under the head, luckily. Then I came to the screws under the radiator. First remove the push-lock fastener. Use a 10mm open wrench to keep the nut from turning. I have long arms and was able to reach them. The two remaining screws on the passenger's side did not break off but instead broke the holes in the splash pan. If this part is over $120 then I will fix what I have by riveting aluminum sheet to the splash pan. Epoxy will not stick to this stuff.

Good Luck!
