Where is the battery located in a mercedes ml-320 2009

The battery on a 2009 Sea-Doo is located in a small compartment located at the back left above the water jet. The Seadoo was a model of personal watercraft produced by Bombardier Recreational Products from 1989 to 20031. The XP is a significant model in that it was the first high performance version of a runabout (or sit-down) watercraft to be offered by any manufacturer. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I have a 2004 grand prix. Applied parking brake but cable doesn't release

It is likely you will have to lay down on the ground and reach under the car and assist the cable out, pulling towards the rear of the car. I am assuming you are going to have to jack the car up in order to get underneath the vehicle. In doing so, place safety jacks under the car, block the front wheels so they don't roll. I don't know about your specific car, but usually the brake cable is only partially protected from the elements from the lever back to the rear brake drums. corrosion and disuse makes the cable get hung up and sticky. Look under the car. usually there is a turnbuckle or adjusting spring visible on the cable too. Do you see a cable running from near the front left assuming a foot pedal, or the center assuming a hand lever in the center, and running towards the rear? It will connect to another cable sleeve in the rear and split in two for each side. Once you find this cable you need to pull, tug, and work it gently in both directions ( but primarily tugging it towards the rear) to loosen the brakes. You may need another person in the car to push the release button, while you are pulling on the cable.

My 2001 Lexus RX300 seemingly slams on the brakes while driving. i was going down a bumpy road when it began and suspect something fell off or came loose and because it's like it looses power for a second...

well, the first thing to do is remove the wheels and take a look at the brakes, make sure all the bolts are in place, check the caliper brackets,make sure the bolts are holding it and that its tight,then check under the hood and check the vaccum line from the intake to brake booster. start with these things first. good luck.

99 Jeep GC Brake Lock

todays sports utility vehicles are equiped with a proportioning valve. they are usualy located at the rear of the vehicle. this valve regulates the flow of brake fluid to the calipers. most suv`s have a ride control arm on them that is linked to the rear suspension to apply more braking force to the rear wheels in a harsh or sudden stop. if this valve is bad or malfunctioning even body roll can redirect brake fluid to the rear wheels causing them to lock up., hope this info helps

Towing capacity of a 1.8L Nissan Primera Station Wagon

1500Kg is more likely to be the maximum towing weight.

You should, in theory, be able to launch and recover a boat/trailer of this combined weight ok, but in practise you need to consider how slippery the ramp is and if your front wheel drive vehicle will be able to cope with it.

Use a long strop attached to the trailer and looped around the towing hitch, to launch and recover the boat, so your car stays well away from the water.

You could have some problems getting enough grip with your front wheel drive, when recovering a boat.

I have had to recover my boat from a rocky beach when I couldn't get it back to the launch ramp because of bad weather. I was very thankful that I had a four wheel drive car for that.

What ever you do, ALWAYS plan carefully exactly how you are going to do the launch or recovery and make sure you stop and think about it before doing it.
