Question about 2005 Chevrolet Malibu

1 Answer

The plastic piece that is on the back of my passenger seat is loose and I can't get it to snap back in place. Is there a way to "snap" it back in place? Or a piece that might have broken off? I don't want to it fall off completely if I can avoid that.

Use chemical metal to fill were the broken clip sits in, hold on for 10min till it drys or heavy duty bonding glue from your local auto suppliers.

Passenger door will only open from the outside not inside

on the link for the lock on the door inside the door panel there is a plastic retainer this can snap and the door rod can come out of place, you would need to replace the plastic clip and fit the rod back into place, when you have the rod in place used some wire and rap the plastic clip and rod this should stop this happening again.

The front passenger seatbelt is twisted and won' t retract on my 2004 Sienna minivan. How can I fix it myself?

OK - So I have a 2004 Sienna and the drivers seat had a twisted seat belt. To make matters worse it was fully extended and I could not straighten it. Here are the steps I took to get it corrected.

I took off the handle to the sliding door. There are 2 small panels on the handle that can gently be removed with a flat head screwdriver. Once exposed you will see 2 torx bolts. If you have that tool, great. If not you can use a small flat head to unscrew the bolts. This removes the handle

Next use your flat head screwdriver to 'pop' off the bottom center section of plastic (the piece that has the auto door button). The side closest to the sliding door will have a plastic 'snap' that will come out and that will allow enough room to get to the other plastic snap...these come out easily but be careful they don't drop to the bottom. Once unsnapped you will have access to the top plastic center section (where the seat belt is located)

There is another plastic 'snap' close to the sliding door. Unfastening this side will allow enough space for you to access the drivers side and use a 10mm socket to remove the bolt holding that in place. Once out I was able to get both hands on the seat belt & it was easily corrected.

I adjusted the slide to its highest position since that is the way the passenger side is and we have never had an issue with that side.

Put all pieces back in reverse order & you are done. Took about 15 minutes.

Hope this helps.

How do you replace the exterior mirror glass on a 2007 chevy tahoe. I have the the replacement glass portion but not sure how to release the broken portion from the mirror motor. Thanks for any info!

i just replaced the passenger side on mine and this is what i did.

1. on the back side of the mirror housing is a half moon shaped plastic piece. gently remove that from the housing, exposing a portion of the back side of the mirror.

2. disconnect the two wires (remember rt and lf). carefully, with a pry tool, apply pressure on the center of the back side of the mirror, it will pop loose.

3. once the mirror is off there should be a round plastic piece attached to the back side of the mirror. on the passenger side there is a tab in the upper left side. lift up on the tab and slide the plastic piece should slide off.

4. once you have the plastic piece off it goes on the back of the new mirror in the opposite way. you line up the four cross tabs and slide the mirror up until the tab grabs it.

5. put the mirror back in the housing by lining the circle (on back side center of mirror plate) with the center of the mirror housing. genlty apply pressure on the center of the mirror (i had to hit it firmly with the palm of my hand) unitl it snaps into place.

6. once it snaps into place you can reconnect the two wires to the back of the mirror and install the back side plastic housing......DONE

To remove radio on a 1998 Buick LeSabre describes removing a plastic wood strip in middle of dash. It does not however, explain how to remove this trim strip.

I have a 1995 and 1999 LeSabre and the radio removal is the same on both.
1. Carefully remove the AC vents from the dash.
2. In each of the AC openings are screws that hold the top of the dash trim in place.
3. Starting from the passenger door gently pry off the "wood" trim piece, It is held in place with metal clips and velcro.
4. Do the same as 3 from the driver side (short piece).
5. Remove the remaing screws from the bottem of the dash.
6. Move the Shift knob (requires key) all the way down.
7. Starting at each end of the dash slowly pry/pull each clip along the top of the dash from its mounting hole. Be careful not to crack the silver trim piece on the top of the dash (especially on top of the passenger airbag).
8. When the dash is free tilt the top in towards the car and wiggle it loose around the bottom (over the steering column) and the whole piece should come free.

This gives access to the radio, heater controls, speedo etc.

For the radio - three screws - antenna cable pop out. The harness needs a little more work. If your radio has a security feature (blinking light when car is off) make sure you know the security unlock code. Test the code before pulling the power to the radio.
Turn the radio over and carefully unlock the blue clip at the bottom of the plug. Then work the harness loose.
This sounds much worse than it is - it should take 15-30 minutes depending if you have all the tools close by. BTW those AC vents have a top and bottom - the larger hole goes on the bottom and they snap back in place.

Audi A6 rear seat problem

The rear seat pulls out easily.  Grab the front of the seat with fingers under seat on driver side and pull up hard.  do the same on the passenger side and it will unclip.  Then you can move the seat around to get to the buckle.  Install by inserting rear end in first and lineing up the metal tabs w/ the female plastic inserts in the floor and push down hard until it snaps into place.
