The ashtray door on my 2005 lincoln navigator won't stay closed. Found a small black piece of plastic in the cup holder, might be from the latch or something inside the door housing. Can I fix or does it...

You should have the identical part on the other side of your vehicle. Take a look at it and see if it the same. To empty the ashtrays, many are removable to dump and empty.

When i drive the bonnet light comes on

Unscrew the bulb and stick it in your ashtray - unless you smoke. In that case, put it in the glove box and quit smoking.

Need to remove smoke odors from car

  • If you smoke in your car, then this will be obvious but even someone else smoking in the car unbeknown to you can leave a lingering odor. To try and get rid of it, place two towels into two separate plastic bowls and fill with white distilled vinegar. If the car is really big, use additional bowls. Place the plastic bowls into the car with the vinegar-soaked towels. One should sit near the ashtray, and the other one on the backseat. The vinegar will absorb the cigarette odors from the car, so that when you remove the bowls, the odor should leave too. If needed, repeat.[7]You can also try sprinkling baking soda and/or carpet deodorizer over the upholstery and carpet respectively, leave for a few hours, and then vacuum it up. If you or somebody else regularly smokes in the car though, the odor will always be present, so the best thing to do is to stop smoking in the car.

How to change ashtray light in 2000 silverado truck

Remove the ashtray. Pull the plastic dash cover loose with a trim tool. Remove the passenger airbag switch (no need to unplug) and adjoining blank plate from thier slots with trim tool. You will see the lamp and cable on the right side. Stick your finger into the top of the empty ashtray slot and push up on the lamp clip to release. Fish the lamp out with a thin screw driver and twist the shade cover off. Pull the bulb straight out. Replace and reverse for installation. RE-clipping the assy into the housing might require removing the accessory frame that holds the airbag switch, but if you have limber fingers you should be able to reconnect.

No filter but Oust works pretty good if you spray it into the passenger side floor to have the a/c return **** it up and back through the vents.
