I would like to recharge the a/c unit myself how do i do this? The a/c does not get very cold anymore.

you can go to most any autoparts store and purchase a can of freon that is already

set up to fill your system. its user friendly. your best bet is to go to an autozone or

advance auto parts, where they can help show you how its done, that way the next

time you will already know and can do it yourself. most autoparts stores will help

because you will be purchasing what you need from them. good luck!

I need instructions on install/uninstall right rear power window on a 2002 Buick Lesabre.

First you need to remove the inner door panel, it will be held on by screws and clips.

I need to know how to fix my passenger side back seat window, I can pull it up but it won't stay up long. How can I fix it myself the right way

These vehicles have a notorious problem with the power window regulators failing.To correctly and permanately fix this you will need to purchase the regulator assembly and replace it.These normally run about $85 U.S. dollars and are available from your local auto parts stores.I hope I could help.Rate me accordingly, Thanks!!

95 vw cabrio back window won't go up

First off, if they could hear the motor, they took advantage of you already!! These windows are cable driven and there is no way to repair the motor and regulator assembly. The regulator you may be able to do by yourself depending on your skill level. A new (or used) window regulator will need to be purchased. Let me know what else you may need.

When changing out a window regulator can you change out the spools without having to purchase a new motor

yes. spool comes with regulator, all you do is remove motor and reinstall on new regulator, hope this helps.

2001 Toyota corolla LE: Driver side power window problems

The motor is burned out, likely due to heavily worn brushes inside. As the motor cools (from lack of use) it becomes usable again, but quickly heats up and seizes with use.

You will need to replace the window motor. If you are mechanically inclined it is not a difficult job.

The door panel needs to be removed (numerous philips screws and push fasteners), then there are two 10mm bolts holding the glass to the regulator. Support the glass in the upward position with tape or suction cup supporting devices.

Disconnect the power to the motor and unbolt the regulator from the door (about 5 10mm bolts), then slide the regulator and motor assembly out the door opening.
If you purchased a complete regulator/motor (typical aftermarket), simply install the new one in reverse order.
If you purchased just the motor (typical OEM), you will need to unbolt the motor from the regulator. Becautious as the regulator is spring loaded and will snap open once the motor separates. Install the new motor with the regulator in the same position as before disassembly, and reinstall into the vehicle.

Replacing window regulator

You can buy the plastic clips from the dealer, break the old ones, there is no tool that I remember using, in fact I don't remember having any problem, are you sure the regulator is at fault? why not just replace the motor?

Driver's side window regulator

I just replaced the regulator in my mother's 98 civic ex and didnt need any special tools. I do recommend replacing the glass run channels on either side of the window. I have replaced the regulator twice and it is still having problems as I haven't replaced the run channels. If not replaced very soon I can see myself replacing the regulator...yet again!
