SOURCE: How do I remove the

I have a suzuki esteem 2000 and to remove the inside of the door panel you must first locate the window roll down lever and when you push back on the panel it opeans up a gap between the lever and the panel and if you look there is an axile that connects to the lever and in the lever there is a set of groovs and if you look at the groves there is a snap on ring, you must first push that ring off of the axile which will let you to freelly pull the lever off and then you can locate the screws that also hold the panel on my suzuki I have one on the handle which is covered by a plastic cap and there is also another palstic cap a little lower. After you have freed the screws the rest are just snap on clips you can just pull the panel off.

well hope it was helpfull.

SOURCE: 1998 suzuki esteem 1.6 will not start HELP!

Having good fuel pressure is a plus (yours seems a bit high but I don't have specs) What you need to find out is if the injectors are opening and putting the fuel into the engine so it can work. Are the plugs wet with fuel or dry? Does it fire up if you spray carb cleaner into the throttle body while cranking?

Whats the procedure for removing and installing a altanator

Well first unconnect the battery, Loosen the "Slacker" and remove the belt. Unbolt the alternator and replace it the same way. Take a picture of or draw a diagram on where the belt acually goes if your replacing that too. I always replace the belt while i am doing something like that.

hi from uk 1st disconnect battery earth lead ?? then unplug/disconnect wires from alternator then slacken alt mounting bolt/s now all that is left is the adjuster slide bracket the bolt you mention can be slackened using flat open end 12 mm spanner ? due to pully in front of it ?
