The rear quarter panels on a car are typically welded on (as opposed to the front fenders which simply bolt on).

They are certainly available and any body shop will be able to order them for you new or used. They may also be able to repair your existing ones without a problem.

Why can't I open rear door?


Sounds like the rod fell off inside. Their not held on by much, - a little clip deal is all. Your probably going to have to pull the panel to fix. Maybe the rear seat as well, - if there isn't another access point somewhere.

To get it open:
-remove the door panel,
-remove the speaker,
-reach in a pull the top cable by hand.

There are a few ways to fix it, the easiest of which is to purchase a replacement latch assembly from the dealership.
If you don't want to spend the money, you can fix it with zip ties and flexible/semi-rigid plumbing parts from a hardware store.

Failed a emissions part of the smog test


It would depend on what the exhaust numbers are.
Too much fuel, not enough air, too much oil burning, etc.
Generally speaking, you would need to have access to a 4 gas analyzer to know if the repairs improve the numbers to the point of passing.
Otherwise, you could spend a set amount of money on tuneup work and other fuel related repairs if there is a set limit of money spent.

Any suggestions on fixing Front end clunking noise on 05 Chrysler 300?


I quit the Chrysler dealership aroung 2001, so I am not familiar with that model, however dodge/Chrysler did have issues with sway-bar links/ball joints/tie rods over the years. your clunking could be from any of these items or from the upper strut swivel plates. hard to tell without my assometer in it.

I just spent $500 replacing rear rotors and rear brakes on a 2009 Suzuki SX4. This vehicle has 39,000km. Is there a problem with suzuki rotors? 39,000km seems a little too ealy for me to need new rotors....


120,000 K would be about time for new rotors, if they
were machined once along the way

I have no idea about recalls or problems,so maybe I
shouldn't respond at all

My personal opinion & I do not mean to be hurtful in any
way,is that you can not just drive a vehicle & never
take it apart,even a brand new

All brakes have to come apart once a year to remove rust
& clean,inspect & lube things
Brake Pads & Calipers simply won't slide or release 4 months
after any brake work or at least very well

I don't see any indication that the pros do that kind of work,
or ever have & certainly never educate you on any subject

I am saying your brakes were dragging & shouldn't have been
& you parking brake need to release properly

You can spend $400.00 just for quality parts at repair shop
cost, with no problem
15 years ago you had a hard time spending $200.00 to do
all 4 wheels

Air Ride Suspension on Rear won't air up


I had that problem with my ford fairlane (Australian Ford) there is a little compressor that pumps the air up when you turn the ignition on, it is located under the front right guard looking from inside the car.
I was told to remove the air shocks in the rear and replace them with air shocks that you pump up at the garage as the air line from the shocks go to a valve in the boot.
I did this and never had another problem with the rear suspension but I had heaps more problems with the car over a 4 year period and decided to sell it as it was never ending, I have never bought another ford since and never will
Hope this helps you

Rear window is off track


Its a little time consuming,pretty straight forward. I would send the job out to a body shop . They do this in there sleep and if after you remove the door panel you determine that the regulator is rotted or missing parts , your not waiting around for days with a busted window for your parts to come in. Money well spent. especially if your vandalized or it rains( not to mention the glass window will cut you if your not careful.) Also the sheet metal fram arond this window claims skin even from a pro.

Rear windshield Wiper and Rear Defroster don't work


I had the same problem. I spent a full afternoon checking fuses. My rear window was down a fraction of an inch. Put your window down and up again before spending any money.
