What is better for a truck , a tonneau cover or a cap.


I think the answer , cap vs tonneau, is a matter of functionality. It depends on how much storage capacity you are needing. With the cap, you have to climb into the back if items are stored towards the front of the bed. With the tonneau, you have easy access to the whole bed, but on the other hand, there is much more storage capacity with the cap. The Tonneau top is popular due to it's more sleek look. There are many designs for both tops.

Tonneau cover motor clicks but does not lift


There is a small gear on the tonneau lift motor that has stripped out...pretty common failure. The gear is available, but an aggravation to change and some small pieces are no longer avail. Has happened to mine...get a rebuilt motor on ebay for under a hundred bucks, have your local saab guy put it in and recalibrate the roof at the same time as it has likely tweaked itself when it stripped.

Tonneau cover


I've seen a lot of <a href="http://www.hitchcity.com/CapsCovers-Covers.html">tonneau covers in Toronto</a> just be removed and re-installed and that usually takes care of any problem. Try it out.

How to change the air filter on a 1998 dodge grand caravan sport 3.3 l


The air filter is located towards the bottom of the engine compartment on the drivers side. It is hard to see if unless you know where it is. To get to it start by removing the two 8mm or 10mm screws which hold a piece of plastic duct work to the radiator support bracket. Next loosed the two worms clamps which hold on the round intake duct work to the engine. All of this is located on the drivers side. After these clamps are loosened remove that portion of the intake, you will have to pull a black tube off of this portion of intake also. Just remember to put it back on later. Now you should be able to see down inside the engine compartment. You will see a black box on your right side. The cover for this box is held on by metal clips. When you unclip these clips this cover will open and expose the air filter. Simply pull the air filter out and replace it with a new one. Installation is the exact reversal of this procedure. I hope this helps and please don't forget to rate me.

2002 nissian frontier tailgate is stuck


First thing: Try using the key to move to the locked and then to the unlocked position. If this works, open the tailgate... This also pretty much tells you what the root cause problem is, which is a pressed-in plastic post working its way out (see below).

If no bedliner, just remove metal plate inside tailgate and actuate by hand inside to open. If bedliner, first use a small screwdriver to carefully (don't scratch paint) push in latches at either side of tailgate to open/lower tailgate (if locking/unlocking as above did not work to lower gate and gain access). Next, use two blade screwdrivers to pry out the "buttons" that hold the ends of the tailgate liner where they wrap around the sides, then remove bedliner piece and metal plate, etc.

Once you have access to inside of tailgate, you will see how the mechanism works by pulling up and down on the handle while observing. You will probably find that the slide mechism that locks and unlocks the mechanism has been allowed to move such that it cannot unlock/allow movement of the latching mechanism. This is usually the result of the pressed in plastic anchor being worn/loose. I had some success with cleaning thoroughly with alcohol or brake cleaner, allowing to dry and then using super glue to hold it firmly in all the way. Still have to hold handle up when closing gate and keep key on hand to unlock every time opening, but it was a free repair...

Hard tonneau cover


I guess I should have checked it out before posting this. It was easy. It was just a matter of clamping the rails to the sides and front of the box, sliding the cover into the 2 slots in the front, and voila!
