How can i repair a crack in my hard case swiss cargo roof rack carrier?


I would use fiberglass (resin, hardener + cloth) on the inside after thoroughly scuffing (and if necessary drilling reinforcing holes) the carrier surface. If after doing that the exterior is not to your liking you could remove any loose material, fill any low areas with auto body filler, sand smooth, and paint. This type of repair will be watertight and likely stronger than the original piece. I have done similar repairs on fiberglass, plastic, carbon fiber, and wood. If the carrier is smooth plastic I would recommend drilling small holes along that crack to allow for a better bond. If it is fiberglass carbon fiber or another composite course scuffing should suffice.

I have replaced tires struts and strut plates and lower control arms can someone give me any ideas?


Hi Mike have you checked the rear axel bushes or spring hangers. Have had a similar fault which was caused by the rear axel floating too much. Good Luck.

The back end of my Buick regal is very low and I have changed the struts and it is still low


The ride height of a vehicle is controlled by the springs not struts unless a strut mount has given away. the rear suspension on your regal has a transverse spring and i think it is made up of a fiberglass/composite material. you won't be seeing a coil or a old leaf spring on this set up. the spring may just be weak or cracked, it sits left to right (transverse) mounted in center with ends hanging down attached to your trailing arms(like a upside down u)there are links that connect the spring to suspension arms that actually push/pull on the trailing arms that give the spring it's function. (it vaguely resembles a old corvette suspension as supporting the weight) not as technical or engineered as the vettes suspension though.

Leaf spring replacement


Yes but you need two thumbs. Jack the truck and support it on the frame ahead of the axel so the axel can hang on its own weight. Remove the bolts and mount to the bad spring - remove the axel mount first, Let the axel sag and put something under the tire to help hold it. Remove the spring mount bolts to the frame and lower the spring out the rear. reinstall is the reverse --- BUT --- the new spring may not fit right in the spring mounts. Mount the front bolt first and then the rear - you may have to use a pry-bar and force the spring into the rear mount.

How to remove rear axle 03 chevy silverado


You will have to remove the rear end plate off of the back of the rear end. Then turn the carrier untill you see a big silver pin that goes through the spider gears. Those will be 4 small gears in the rear end carrier. If you look at the right side of the carrier were the pin goes through it you will see a small bolt head, That bolt goes through the carrier and holds the pin in place. Remove that bolt then reach up in the rear end housing and push the pin towards you untill it comes out. ( DO NOT TURN ANYTHING AFTER YOU REMOVE THE PIN) are the spider gears will fall out.


Now get someone to push the axel in while you are looking at the 4 small gears in the housing, when they push the axel in a C-clip will fall off the end of the axel and into the rear end, You will see it fall out. Then just pull the axel out.



When you put the axel back in, push it all the way in then slide the c-clip over the end of the axel and then pull out on axel and that will hold the clip in place untill you put the big long pin back in the carrier. I hope you understand, just watch what you are doing. GOOD LUCK.

2001 and 2002 jeep grand cherokee. while making hard left hand turn experience rumbling sound doesnt happen when driving straight or right turns. Cant decide if sound is from front or rear area


Try checking the bearing in the left wheel if the rumbling is on the left side. Sometimes bearings can be worn down and sometimes may even twist or bend.

MY 1993 CHEVY LUMINA IS SITTING TO LOW IN THE REAR TIRES, DOES ANYBODY KNOW ABOUT SOME STRONG SHOCKS TO INSTALL IN THE REAR??


You can get a decent pair of gas charged shocks or monroe load leveler shocks (if they are available for your car) However, it's likely that the rear springs have sagged. You can easily replace them with either oem or a stronger variable rate spring.
