Question about Toyota Sienna

1 Answer

The inside screw can not be tightened as the regulator assembly blocks an allen wrench to tighten the screw.

    The window I'm fixing is the rear quarter window (passenger side). On a 2000 Toyota Sienna this is the window that moves in and out approximately three inches acting as a vent. The movement is controlled by a switch on the dash and an electric motor (regulator) at the window. I had to replace the multi-piece screw that holds the window to the regulator assembly. The screw is connected hand tight but can not be tightened due to the regulator assembly blocking access to the screw head. Hopefully this post clears up which window I'm working on.

Not sure wher your working inside the door fixing the window regulater or inside the altenator. Inside the altenator the regulater has tto be desoldered and removed before you can remove the brush holder and then the if the conn is wore badlly enought you can have a time getting the worn brush holder off a badly worn conn. What are you doingf this for anyway? Just buy a reman or used tested good unit and just put it on and go on. Now if your inside the door fooling with the window and you can't get the window to move at all up or down . Now we're having fun. Hopefully the glass isn't broke and you don't break the window while your woring on it. First it's wise to get a patience person to help as the window wil need to be held as you unbolt it and remove it to get it out of the way. Many times an inoperatable window will require that you take everything apart just to get to the bolt your talking about. be careful to get the window out first as it's heavy and theres alot of sharp edges inside the door. I put tape on my wristes and on the back of my hand thatrs doing the fishing in the door as there's lots of bad things that canhappen to you inside the door and it's worst if you can't close the window first. dis connect the window fromtheregulater and remove the outside window guild ( it just snaps in as you already ave the inside door panel off and with both off the window can be cocked and pulled out of the door. with ti out just keep taking out bolts and moving the loose assembly around and you'll turn it around enought to were you can get to the bolts on the older frods and american cars you just drill holes in the inside door skin lined up with the bolt you need out and then just put a scocket thought the hole you drilled ( a big hole). Have fun and try to avod cutting yourself. their's other regulaters as the fuel gauge has on the radio has a few and the air conditioning system has 3 so you need to say which one.

    I think if you look carefully that there's a "c" clip also holding this bolt to the window glass, Take a small pick and get in behind it and pull it off be careful not to lose it as it's hard to find one just like it. I put a magnet in my hand as I do it so the clip will stick to it instead of going flying off to parts unknown.. now the glass is out of the way and you can fold it back and get to the allen and tighten it up.. you may even want to take it apart and add some locktight to the threads so it won't come loose so easily. once tightened put the clip back on being careful again not to stab youself with the tool your pusing the clip with and also not to send it flying.

How to tighten loose bolt inside floor of disposal. was accidentally loosened with silver wrench

First make certain that the disposal is completely disconnected from AC power. Most disposals have a "jam clearing" access feature - actually a hex-shaped opening in the actual motor shaft on the underside of the disposal. With one person holding a properly-sized Allen wrench in this opening to prevent the motor from turning, you may be able to use a socket wrench and extension to tighten bolts in the floor of the disposal bowl.

What is the tighteing sequence on a 97 5.2 dodge ram 1500 connecting rods

First thing to do is use plasti guage in the inside of each bearing cup, tighten to spec and then remove it, measure the expansion of the plasti gauge to see if the clearance is within specs. Apply assembly grease and reassemble if ok. Two bolts on a bearing cap don't have a sequence to speak of. You finger tighten them both to the same point. Get a torque wrench and set it to half of the final value, tighten one, tighten the other, reset the wrench to final value, tighten one, tighten the other.

How do you remove a throw out bearing on a 1997 harley

Step 1: Remove the magnetic drain plug with a wrench. (The drain plug is underneath the outer primary chain case on the left side of the motorcycle). Drain the fluid into a drain pan.
Step 2: Remove all of the screws on the clutch release cover with an Allen wrench. & also remove the clutch release cover. Discard the gasket that's located right on the inside of the clutch release cover.
Step 3: Loosen the clutch cable adjuster with a wrench to allow it to slack a bit in the clutch cable.
Step 4: Remove the retaining clip of the pushrod assembly with a pick tool. This should also release the two thrust washers located just behind the retaining clip.
Step 5: Remove the throw out bearing & Insert a new one into the same slot.
Step 6: Reinstall the two thrust washers and the retaining clip you previously removed.
Step 7: Tighten the clutch cable adjuster with a wrench.
Step 8: Replace the clutch release cover gasket and reinstall the cover by inserting and tightening the screws that you previously removed.

What bolts do i tighten on the steering? Went to a tire shop and they said that it is loose.

depends on the make and model of your vehicle. in general (most vehicles) there is an adjustment on the steering box. look for a large nute with an allen head set screw in the middle of it, place an allen head wrench on the adjustment screw to ensure it doesnt move and break the set nut free, turn the adjustment screw down one half of a turn and re tighten the set nut. go test drive you car around the block, repeat as necessary. me sure not to over tight/over adjust your steering box, this will cause your car to handle dangerously ans easily loose control. if this process doesnt cure the issue check for a worn rag join and universal joint on the steering pillar. also check for worn out bushings, pitman arms, drag links, track bars and tie rod ends

How do I take the rear view mirror off a 2005 ford territory? it has seems to have a metal pad that the mirror slides onto. my current mirror wobbles while I drive - apparently it is a common fault?? I...

There should be a small set screw on the side of the metal pad that tightens against the mirror to keep it from wobbling. It may be loose or missing. It takes a very small allen wrench to tighten the set screw. If tightening the screw doesn't stop the wobbling, you can loosen it far enough to slide the mirror up and out of the bracket. Slide the other mirror into the bracket and tighten the set screw.

Tips on changing the fuel pressure regulator out on 2004 3.4 v6 impala

Not only will I give you tips, but step by step instructions :

Even though it is in open view, this is a really tight space, and small hands are good. - First you need to make a little extra room. Using a 13mm socket, back off the bolt holding the throttle valve so it is flush and not protuding towards the regulator. Pull the throttle swinger back and out of the way and jam it in place with a long screwdiver fed from the back. -Remove the PCV valve from the valve cover and connecting tube. -Remove the vacuum line from the regulator. To remove the bottom feed line, use a 15/16" open end or metric equivalant, turning clockwise when looking from the top. It will only move about 1/6 turn, then flip the wrench. When loose, pull the tube out as far as possible. -To remove the screw holding the regulator in place, you will need a T-27 star driver, a 1/4" hex wrench, and a 1/4" socket. There is no room to get a rachet in there, and do not try using an allen wrench or you will be so sorry. -Put the T-27 driver into the socket, and slide the wrench over the driver so it is on the hex part. -Put your contraption into the screw, using one hand to apply back pressure to hold it in place, and turning the wrench with the other. Once you get everything loose, you can kind of twist the regulator out. Installation is the reverse, but be sure to lube both seals with a little oil and a q-tip.
-Tighten the T-27 screw until it is about where it needs to be, then make sure the bottom feed tube is pushed in all the way. You'll probably need needlenose pliers and a magnet to get the feeder tube nut back up, and start it manually, making sure it is straight before you put the wrench to it.
-Tighten both snuggly, and put everything else back the way it was. Turn the key and drive away.
Please let me know how it goes.
