If your talking about the chrome plated hub caps, you can use a 3/4" socket with a short extension to unsrew the black plastic nut covers off turning them counterclockwise until they're loose then pull the wheel coves off. When you screw the plastic nut covers on tighten by hand until they're snug don't over tighten them you can srtip the plastic threads (note: the actual lug steel lug nuts are under the wheel covers make sure you tighten them good )

My toyota corolla2005 rear right side wheel scrubing th tire when breaks


I would first check the break parts on that tire. remove the tire...making sure you take the precaution to chock the other tires and use an appropriate jack and proceed to removing the tire. Once the tire is down look at the the components for wear. Some break pads come equipped with a metal blade that once the pad wears out this metal plate comes in contact with the rotar or drum and makes a high pitch metal grind sound. This would be the indicator to change your pads and may possibly need to resurface your rotars or drums to spec. Let me know if that's what it was. GE.

Where is mazda 2 2004 fuel filter located?


I own a Mazda 2 2005. It is located near to the fuel tank. If you duck under the rear passenger tire you'll be in the right spot. It's a silver cylinder about 100mm long. Putting the car on ramps would make it easier to get to. It is the only thing to replace so long as you don't break the hose clips.

How to change air filter for 2007 volkswagen jetta ,2.5


Hi, on the VW Jetta 2006 to 2009, the cabin filter is underneath the glove box so lay down on the floor and look under to see the 2 plastic screws. Access is gained by removing two plastic screws and gently pulling down a piece of foam insulation. Once the insulation is removed you can see the filter 8 inch long by 2 inch wide black plastic face plate. You must slide the face plate toward the passenger side door.

The face plate will now come off and the filter will still be inside and you will have to pull it down. Debris will come out onto the floor mat below. Insert the new cabin filter, put the face plate back up an slide toward he drivers side to lock in place. Replace the insulation, re-screw the 2 screws, and you're back in business with fresh air and clean hands besides!

Take care

You have to pull the dash pad off the top and pull the gage pod out. Usually the odometer fails due to two plastic gears in it breaking. You can buy these at www.FCPGroton.com for about $25 each. Do them both. Here's a tutorial on the process, it takes about 1 1/2 hours. http://www.matthewsvolvosite.com/2005/01/01/interior-seats-dash-remotes-switches-odometer-fix-how-to/

1998 beetle radio buttons


The face plate buttons actually activate small buttons on a printed circuit board behind the face plate. When I removed the radio and then the face plate many small pieces of plastic fell from behind the face plate. These small plastic pieces align the face plate button to the printed circuit board buttons. My Beeetle is almost 10 1/2 years old so I imagine the plastic is just becoming brittle with age. I could not set the radio to FM, so I removed the face plate button and now slide a toothpick in the slot to toggle between FM1 & FM2. Not he best solution, but probably the most inexpensive one. I also made my on tool to remove the radio from a diagram found at: http://www.alientech.net/nbinfo/stereo.html
