there should be a diagram on a decal under the hood if its still there. the other thing to do is go to the library and look for a book on maintenance for you year make and model of car it should be in there
Steve, it seems that if you weren't having bad luck, you would be having no luck at all with that car! Try making sure that the shifter is all the way in PARK. You may have to put the shifter back in gear and return it to PARK a couple times. The MOST LIKELY cause is the shift interlock cable sticking.
you can go to auto zone and tell them you need a routing diagram for the serpentine belt on your 2.0., they should be able to make you one. have a good day !! are you sure there is not a diagram under hood.
Looking at the opened door from the inside remove the philips screw near the upper hinge. Pry the speaker grill off with a thin blade putty knife, starting at the bottom left and work to the right. Remove speaker screws and the three screws in the recessed plastic spaces behind. Remove the square covers behind the handle and in the arm rest. Remove the 2 philips screws exposed. Start to pry from the top hinge side between the plastic door panel and the metal door. Work your way around the door until plastic clips release. Once the bottom of the panel and sides are free, lift the panel up and off the door being careful not to pull wiring and door handle mechanism loose. Unplug the as much of the wiring as you can and support the panel so as to not stretch the wiring. Pop the plastic retaining clip on the door handle connecting rod and lift the rod out of the handle. Slowly peel back the vinyl/rubber door cover stuck to the metal door. The window is held in the lower track with two clips that are bolted to the track. Unbolt by raising or lowering the window and using a 10MM socket on the nuts to loosen. Remove the window seal along trhe bottom of the window opening by prying straight up. You can then remove the window and re-epoxy in the lower clips and reassemble window in reverse order.
The problem it seems your having is with the safety latch. It's designed so that if you don't close the hood properly the hood won't come flying open and smash you in the face at 65 mph.
When you 'pop' the hood lift it up a bit, as far as you can and look for a lever either behind the grill or just below the hood in the center. Some cars have the safety release way off center possibly over the driver side headlight.
