My Drivers storage compartment needs to be replaced.

Open your glove compartment up push the edges that are towards the back in with some force and drop the glove all the way down and all the screws holding in will be exposed. Just remove all the screws and pull it out. Also forgot to mention there is a string attached to the right side of the glove that is clipped in , that must be removed as well

Fuel door manual release.

This tip is for 1997-2004 Corvettes:
This is something that will save you some hassle at a gas station if you ever have this problem. You probably already know there is a manual fuel door release cable you can pull if the push button in the console ever fails to open the fuel filler door. If not, it's under the carpet behind the driver's seat. Sounds easy enough, right? Well, while it's not exactly hard to do, in fact it's quite easy. On the other hand, if you are wearing a light colored shirt you are likely to get it dirty reaching under the carpet. The carpet isn't just lying there, the edges are covered by other trim pieces. If the switch ever fails to open the fuel filler door, you need to pull the carpet back and find the manual release cable to open the fuel filler door. This could be a problem if it's cold or raining, or as mentioned above, if you are not dressed for dusty work. One day while I was working in my garage, I decided to find my manual fuel door release cable since I had never actually seen it other than what I read in the owner's manual. I had to remove the inside liner of the driver's side rear storage compartment in order to be able to pull the carpet back and reveal the manual fuel door release cable. After finding it, I thought how much easier it would be to have an extension to that cable so if I ever needed to use this manual release I wouldn't need to remove two pieces of carpet. So what I did was attach a short piece of mono-filament fishing line to the cable, and just dropped the end in the driver's rear storage compartment. Then just replace the carpet and the liner to the rear storage compartment and forget about. This way if my switch ever fails to open the fuel filler door all I need to do is open the rear storage compartment door and give the line a tug to open the fuel filler door.

Glove compartment will not open

glove compartments usually have a key to lock them. use your spare key or your ignition key to try and unlock it. if this is not the case something must be jamming it. try to open it without forcing it. maybe something jammed it shut.

I just bought a 2006 Ford Explorer - Eddie Bauer. I am trying to locate the 5-digit factory code for the keypad entry. I really do not want to have to take the car back to the dealer. Thanks for any clue...

The Code to your door keypad is located inside the rear storage area where your jack is stored. Its kind of hard to get to but its on the module in front of your jack on the backside on a sticker. Fold down the back seat. Open the storage compartment on the driver's side of your Explorer. Using a flashlight, look at the plastic cover hidden in the compartment above the jack. There are 5 large numbers. This is your code. It does not have a label telling you what the number is. Try it and it should work.

God Bless and Good luck!

Where is the fuse panel on a 2004 hyundai elantra

The fuse panel is behind the small storage compartment built into the dash panel on the left side. Open the compartment, then pull up and out to remove. Look in the hole and it is there about 6 inches back in the opening.

How to raise and lower the 328ci convertible top manually

I just bought a 1996 328iC (the "C" is for convertible). I bought the car with the knowledge that the roof needed a motor replacement (~$300 for the part alone + ~1-2 hours labor) and that I would need to open and close the roof manually if I wanted to take advantage of the convertible part of the car.

After some trial and error, I figured it out and now it takes me <30 seconds to open or close the top (manually). Note: my top is a semi-electric roof, which I think is what came on the 328iC, you have to lock into place after you close it.

Here's what you do:
1- open all of the windows
2- unlock the roof by turning the latch between the sun visors.
3- push the front of the roof towards the rear of the car - be sure to push in the middle of the roof, where the latch is.
4- lift the back of the roof up off of the roof storage compartment
5- while holding the back of the of the roof up, lift up the roof storage compartment door
6- let go of the back of the roof so that it drops right into the storage compartment
7- push the rest of the roof into the storage compartment
8- close the storage compartment door.

To close the roof, follow the steps above in reverse order. Remember: this is a German car, so you use a little bit (or a lot) of force and you won't hurt it (I think it actually likes it ;-D ).

Good Luck!!!

I can't open the lid to the gas tank. the button to release the gas lid isn't working. also next to it, the button for the trunk release also doesn't work.

I had a similar problem with my TT Roadster and it was a problem with my central locking system, it temporarily disengaged after a minor incident with the rain while my top was down. Anyway for me it was simply a matter of time before the system reengaged it's self it took maybe a week or so, but to get around the problem, behind your passenger seat there is a storage compartment, pull the lever in the storage compartment to open the trunk, once in the trunk on the left sidewall of the trunk there is a seamless square open that square and there is a black pulley in there, pull on that and your gas tank should open. I hope this help.
