Question about Ford F

Hi, I need to replace a battery in a Ford KA. There is a retaining strap across the battery. Is there any easy way to release this or do I have to undo the nut on the threaded stud that retains the strap? Many thanks, Colin

The battery is required by law to be securely fastned due to the fact that it is based on acid, and can cause serious damage in the event of a crash, so i dont think you can change it without undoing any bolts.

How do you drop the gas to to repair/replace the gas tank float for a 1994 ford thunderbird?


First you need to change it all not just the float because it is old and why do it twice ...Y need complete pump and float kit...It will be hard to do without a lift also you need to have almost no fuel in it before you do it...There is only a couple straps and push fittingd also filler hose and evap hose...If you have never done it I dont recommend it in the yard.......Metalpoet.....Not as easy as it seems.

How do I replace A gas cap on A 2004 F-150(NEW body style)? there is A retaining strap. How do I remove the cap from the strap?


The cap from Ford should already have the retainer ******** it, and you cut off the old one flush, and push the tab of the old one through the hole, and install the new one.

Hi havent adjusted tappets for 15 years now , is a ford ka easy to do.


As I Understand the, the KA has a 1300 cc Ford Cortina or Escort cast iron engine. Therefore the tappet adjustment is the same as always. Place the cylinder on TDC compression stroke and adjust the tappets on its paired cylinder. IE 1->4: 2->3: etc.

Where is the blower located for a 2002 BMW 325i



E30 Models

The blower is accessible by removing the cover at the top of the firewall in the engine compartment.
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable. To remove the motor cover, pull off the rubber weatherstrip, cut off wire ties holding the wire that runs diagonally across the cover, unscrew and remove the bolts, and pull the cover aside.
  2. Release the retaining straps, move them to the side, and then remove the blower cover.
  3. Pull off both electrical connectors. Disengage the clamp that fastens the assembly in place by pulling the bottom. Lift out the motor/fan assembly, being careful not to damage the flap underneath.

To install:
  1. The fan and motor assembly is balanced at the factory. Do not disturb the orientation of the fan and motor during installation. Place the fan and motor into the heater and install the clamp.
  2. Connect the wires and install the fan cover. Attach the straps.
  3. Install the outside cover and install the 4 bolts. Install new wire ties on the diagonal wire and replace the weather-stripping. Connect the negative battery cable.

Changing the clutch cable


There are 2 types of cable used. Auto Adjust...and Manual Adjust. Either are easy to fit. Remove tray over foot=pedals will allow you to access one end of the cable. Here the cable simply hooks over the pedal linkage. Remove the outside plastic panel in front of windscreen to allow the cable to be installed. If the cable is the Manual Adjust type, loosen off the adjuster nuts at the clutch lever on the front / side of the gearbox and pull out cable.
If car is fitted with Auto Adjust cable...A Plastic Retainer Strap will be installed on the cable at the gearbox end. This retainer should be latched into place before removal. If the cable is broken at present you need not bother with this retainer. A new cable comes with this retainer already fitted. Its simply a matter of fitting the cable in place at both ends and then releasing this retainer. Do NOT release this until the cable is fully installed at BOTH ends

How do you take the headlight out of 1998 ford taurus se?


Use a screw driver to release the plug retainer on top. Remove plug. Turn collar 1/8th turn to remove. Wiggle bulb and pull back. Do not touch the glass of the new bulb. The oil on your skin is enough to shorten the life of the bulb.

Push new bulb into place being sure the retainer is on top. Reinstall collar and plug wire.

You may need to remove the battery to get enough room for your hand on the driver side and the two hoses on the passenger side.

I just did it and it is relatively easy.
