Will have to remove door panel to access the inside which should only involve using a screwdriver to pop the clips loose behind the panel. just use care not to damage the panel.

My pine tree has a white fuzz on it and has lost a lot on pine needles and they are brown

You have powdery mildew. Powdery mildew arises during dry weather and is most likely to attack when temperatures are between 60 to 80 degrees Spraying the affected area with water helps wash spores off the tree. Fungicides can be used to protect the tree or as a preventive to keep powdery mildew from forming. Pruning to remove infected areas.

My long needle pine trees are showing signs of growth but are browning on the ends of the needles and some the entire branches. The trees are 8 years old and approx. 12' tall. What can I do?

Cut off a piece where it is turning brown and take it to a nursery where they sell trees and ask. They should be able to tell you at no cost. If you have a camera I would take pictures as well to give them an idea what is happening.

I have a 15-20 ft. pine tree. We recently trimmed alot off the bottom of it and now the healthy branches on the tree are turning brown. Is my tree dying?

Pine trees seal themselves with sap fairly quick so you don't have to worry. If the needles are turning yellow and dropping it could be experiencing some shock or it may just be dropping needles for the fall.
If the needles are actually turning brown, check the trunk and branches for signs of boring insect damage such as hole with sap coming out.

How do I replace a outside minor on a 2005 ford Taurue

There are three bolts that hold it on. PLus the wiring. The triangle above the door panel pops loose, behind the mirror bracket. Be careful, it has a tab that goes down behind the door panel. Pop it loose, you can pull it down far enough to access the 10mm nuts.

I have a 2005 Ford Five Hundred and it seems to be holding water somewhere near both back doors. I can hear it sloshing around when I am driving? Also sometimes when I open one of those doors, water comes...

Well, I would look for the drainage holes in the door near the bottom where water should come out, eliminating this problem.
Sometimes the holes get plugged up with dirt or debris such as grass or pine needles depending on what falls on the car when it is parked.

If one clears the drainage holes, that is probably a good solution for the problem.

Remove rear door panel on06 liberty, ford

There are a couple screws that hold it on. I believe one is in the door handle recess and the other behind a small cover in the door opening lever. After you remove those take a flat head screwdriver and slide it between the metal of the door and the plastic panel starting at the bottom (there should be a spot that sticks out a bit where you can get a screwdriver in). Pry out until you feel a pop (its a good pop), the door panel is held on by what are called Christmas tree plugs that pop in and out. Just work your way around popping them all out and slide the panel up and over the lock pin. Then disconnect the handle linkage and the electrical connectors (dont remember if there are any on the rear doors but the instructions are the same for the front) and set the panel aside. Reverse that to install

Passenger side leak under dash board

Ok take off the windshield wiper arms, then remove the plastic piece under the wipers below the windshield, there is a tray under there and some drain holes, you may have to remove some more plastic pieces once you remove the one below the windshield (some models are slightly different) clear out all the tree leaves and pine needles and such from the tray there are drain holes in the enter, and on each end push a long flexable rod down carefully or compressed air really works the best this is you problem it needs to be done every few years or more often if you park under trees.
If this information is helpful please give me a fixya! Rating , Thank you, Randy
