Ford Laser 1992 5 Door Cable or hydraulic

Do you want to change it or do you want to know which it is? If you are unsure, get someone to push the clutch whilst you look under the bonnet. When you see the clutch moving, you should be able to notice the mechanism. If it is a cable, it'll have a cable connected to it. If it is hydraulic, there will be no cable

My 4 runner suddenly started steering hard what might be causing this

You either have a failing power steering hydraulic pump or the steering rack and pinion unit has a seal leak and needs to be replaced. Try installing a can of power steering sealer from an auto parts store it may help.

Renault scenic 2007 front passenger door not sitting in flush to car - possible attempted break in but no other damage?! Still locks but definitely space between door and body of car - looks as though on...

most door latch mechanisms can be adjusted up-down-left right a little bit..done by loosening the mounting bolts(body shop will point them out if you inquire, or parts store counter person will maybe show you these)..sometimes a strong wind will pull the door open suddenly and actually bend the sheet metal the door hinges are mounted on and this will "spring" the car door.. you can bend it back usually with some sort of a crowbar, or one of these hydraulic body jacks like a porta-power looks like a big grease gun with a hose and attachments that yuo can get someone to use to relocate the door with hydraulic pressure and they usually do thejob with little effort..remember these newer vehicles are make with thinner metals nowadays due to weight restrictions and fuel economy so getting bent is kind of easy to do now...take your time to work with tis and it should close almost as it did before...good luck

Hydraulic lifts on back door quit working

Sorry you can not repair the hydraulic life, your going to have to replace it. You can buy new ones at the Auto Zone or Parts Source and both parts store can give you the how to do the job your self.
It's only going to take you less then 5 min to change one side at a time with the use of a flat head screw driver.
Good luck and hope this helps, most of the time the parts person can help you change the back door lift.
