    There's a tab on the clip. I found it convenient to hook that tab with a long screwdriver to lever the clip off.



Its a pain but it can be done

How do you release a front passenger air bag in 2002 GMC Envoy

Are you looking to discharge and remove air bag or just remove from steering column

To remove air bag from steering column
Disconnect battery
Behind steering wheel there are four bolts tha hold bag on
They are tricky to see the bolt holes but their there tight spot
Now for the trick of wiring hopefully new style came with a release wire clip older style fed wires down column with release clip located under dash
Remove the key ignition box
The wires should be bright orange or yellow from air bag going threw column
If old style you will have to loosen turn signal indicators if wires run under mount
Once you get to end of wire clip
Use a sewing needle to push buds out of clip mark your the main side
Now for ease part
Tape a little 3 foot wire to the ends before pull completley threw this will help pull bud wires back down threw tutn indicator switch
Never force wire threw gently
Removing air bag hopefully made simple by quick release clip under horn press

Battery size and location

The battery is located under the back seat.
The specifications of the battery on your particular model can be found on top of the existing battery.
To remove the back seat,simply grab the front of the seat with both hands underneath and pull straight upwards, this releases the spring clips, no bolts or screws to remove.

Wheres my voltage regulator. 89 dakota 2.5lt

On ALL gasoline models there is no separate voltage regulator. The regulator circuitry is contained in the engine controller. If this circuitry is found faulty, the entire engine controller computer must be replaced as a unit.

(see Figure 1)

This procedure covers diesel models only.


Fig. 1: Pull on the connector body, not the wiring when removing the electronic voltage regulator
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Release the spring clips and pull off the regulator wiring plug.
  3. See if your bolts are rusty or hard to remove, if so use lubricant and allow to sit for a few minutes before removing.
  4. Remove the regulator.
To install:
  1. Install the regulator and secure using the hold-down bolts.
  2. Hook the spring clips to the wiring plug. Make sure the clips are fully engaged.
  3. Connect the negative battery cable.

Hope this helped. (remember comment and rated).

How do I change a headlight bulb in a 2003 focus?

Drivers side: Remove plastic cover on rear of headlamp by pushing down on long wire clip.Pull cover outwards and downwards to release the two clips on top of cover.
Remove wiring connection from rear of bulb.
You will now find that a mirror and torch will come in handy.Using the mirror you will see that the bulb is held in place with a spring clip that locates under a metal lug on the headlamp.Push the clip so that it releases from the lug and swing the clip away from the bulb.Remove old bulb.
Insert new bulb making sure the locating tab is in the correct position.[Use the mirror to check].
Replace spring clip.
Reconnect electrics.
Replace rear cover and long wire clip.

Passenger side:Little more difficult.Remove battery cover and follow the same instructions as for the drivers side.Not so much room to work this side though.
Do not touch the glass parts of the bulbs whilst changing them and if you do clean the glass with metholated spirits before fitting.
