    Thank you, i did that and got a list of many near my area and got many auto part search links. I was hoping there was another way in mind. Would you by chance know what model and/or years may interchange with mine?

Save yourself a lot of time and money and go online and make a Google Search.
Try first typing in just a description of the needed parts. If you don't get the results that you want,
then type in Auto Salvage Parts, and follow the prompts.

Best regards,

Looking to take a look at the fuel filter on a 1998 Lincoln continental, and I'd like to know where exactly its located and how to remove with what tools required.

Replacing Lincoln Continental fuel filters requires a spring expander tool. The fuel filter and the fuel lines to the injectors are held in with a circular spring housed in the end of the line. The line itself that the spring clamp slides over has a raised part on the line, and when the spring connector is pushed over this section, the clamp expands to go over the raised section and then collapses once more on the other side, holding the two pieces together. The spring expander tool is a small L-shaped expander the fits over the line and when pushed into the spring expands the spring so it will enable the pieces to be separated.
  • Lift the hood and locate the Schrader valve on top of the fuel rail. The fuel rail sits on the injectors. It looks like a bicycle tire valve. Remove the cap and use a small screwdriver or similar tool and press in slightly on the valve stem to release any pressure in the fuel line. It is a good idea to put a rag in front of the valve for the escaping fuel, but there won't be much lost (mostly pressure).
    Raise and support the car on jack stands for safety. The fuel filter is on the driver's side about midway back on the frame rail. Loosen the pinch bolt that holds the filter to the bracket. Insert the fuel line tool onto the metal line with the long end facing the filter. Push the end of the tool into the spring with a little twisting motion, keeping a little pressure on the tool toward the filter. Once the spring is expanded over the tool, rotate the filter a little and pull it away from the line to separate the two. Once the one side is separated, do the same to the other side. Be careful--though there is no longer fuel pressure, the filter is still full of fuel and will pour out if tipped. Pull the filter out of the bracket.
  • Before installing the new filter, make sure that it is oriented properly. There is an arrow on the filter pointing toward the engine that says "flow." Install the filter into the bracket with the arrow pointing forward. Insert the fuel lines with the spring locks one at a time. Push the filter hard enough to hear or see the spring snap into place. Do the other line the same way and then tighten the pinch bolt in the bracket. Cycle the ignition key several times to prime the fuel line and check for leaks.

I can't get my driver side window to go up

Figure out whether it is power (button) or manual (crank). go to ebay and search for "new window regulator 99 dodge ram". buy one and take it and the dodge to an auto glass shop, found in yellow pages, and pay them 60 bucks to remove the old one and put the new one in..

Replace rear tail light on ford focus wagon 2000

abar_a.gif?v=77611 Remove two screws and rotate to the side

To remove the rear light assembly for access to turn signals and brake lights:
1) Open the trunk to expose two screws.
2) Remove these two screws.
3) There are two brackets still holding the housing onto the car. Do NOT pull up and do NOT pull up on the housing; you will break the plastic pegs on the lamp housing.

4) Referring to the driver side lamp housing and facing the back of the car:

a) You can see these pegs and brackets on your left hand side if you pull the light housing GENTLY outward. The pegs are pointing into the vehicle from the left side of the car and stick into holes. There is also a spring bracket holding the housing on where the screws are.

b) To remove the housing from the brackets, push/pull the right side of the lamp housing outward and to the left. Do this carefully so that you do not break any of the plastic pegs. What you are looking to do is detach the housing from the spring bracket, and then push/pull the pegs from their holes. You are simply rotating the lamp housing out of the brackets.

Simply mirror instructions for removal of passenger side housing.

This part is a little easier. Line the pegs up with the holes, and then push gently to line up spring bracket with it's hole. Then, push with a little force to get the spring in the hole. Make sure the pegs are in their holes or else it will be crooked and loose.

Take your time! You do not want to break the plastic. It should eventually come loose. With any plastic on your vehicle, be careful not to force it. Good luck!

My driver side seat sits low and I descovered it was due to a loss of springs after I checked under both seats and saw several springs were holding the pass seat but only one was holding drivers seat...

Instead of attempting to rebuild your seat, have you considered finding one in a scrapyard? Seats are not too terribly expensive, you could even do an up-grade and you would save yourself a ton of annoyance. Since it's not a mechanical problem that could be dangerous, you can do this at your leisure and not be forced into buying something you don't like.

2008 dodge avenger wont shift out of park

After trying the spring trick from an earlier post, my key would not come out. Then the spring came off and went under the shifter hold down bracket (which is held on by 4 10mm bolts). After removing that we found the factory spring and the other spring we were using. The factory spring is about 1/2" in length with a circle at each end. The problem is the hot pink button on the left side, it should have a hook for one of these ends to go into but it is broke off. So we used the factory spring and on the hot pink button we screwed a 1/4" coarse thread screw into the plastic with one end of the spring on it, DO NOT over tighten this screw as you will distort the spring. The other end need to go on a small black hook that is molded on the shifter mechanism.

Replace rear leaf springs in a dodge ram 2500 '96

If you are planning to do this via shade tree like mysef, I have used a hydraulic floor jack on one end of the leaf spring touse the weight of the truck to depress the spring enough to pull the spring bolt out. It's a bit tricky... be very cautious if you do this.
