Question about 1997 Cadillac Catera

Done a overall repaint on a 97 catera. It wasnt wrecked. Removed the bumper covers, hood, decklid, all lights and the mirrors (which required removing the inside door panels) dissconnected the batt. first and then unplugged all the wiring harnesses to these parts. Left the batt. disconnected except to move car when needed. Then painted all and reassembled. The airbag light is on now and will not go off..What would've caused this? Why? And how can it be reset or......

Some chey aka caddy cars and trucks have airbag sensors in the doors any time you see wires sheathed in yellow they are for air bags or sensers. be disconecting them it will trip the light in the dash. you can take to the dealer to be reset at 100 bucks roughly or look on ebay or google for companies the reset the control module. granted you have to take the module out of the car and ship it to them. but that is around 50 bucks. i have done both ways.

How much to repaint the damaged paint about 4 inches long on the front bumper of a 2001 audi tt


That would depend on the labor rates in your local area. Also how the work is done. From just painting and blending clear in a small area and to removing the bumper cover and clear the whole cover.

DRIVING LIGHTS STOPPED WORKING.


You have to basically remove the bumper cover in order to do this.
You will need a 10mm socket with a couple extensions and a phillips screwdriver.First remove the plastic shield inside the wheel well using the phillips screwdriver.There are three 10mm bolts that have to be removed the attach the bumper cover to the fender. The first one is just inside the newly uncovered hole. For the other two you will need the extensions. They are located all the way back in the hole beside the headlight assembly. If you look in with a flashlight You will see 3 bolts down in there. One of them will have a 1/2 inch spacer on it. Do not worry about this bolt, it holds the header panel on. The other 2 bolts are the ones you need to remove. Once this is done, if you need to remove the bolts under the hood that hold the bumper cover on the header panel. You should now have adequate movement to move the bumper cover out of the way of the 3 10mm bolts on the headlight assembly that were blocked.

I need info on how to replace the headlamp bulbs on my 2008 Chevy Malibu, can you help.


The procedure is very involved.It requires the removal of the front bumper fascia fasteners from the center and side of the headlamp to be removed.
  1. Remove the front bumper fascia fasteners from the center and side of the headlamp to be removed, full removal of the fascia is not necessary. Refer to Front Bumper Fascia Replacement.
  2. Gently pull the fascia forward to allow clearance to remove the headlamp assembly.
  3. You will also need to remove some of the fasteners at the front of the inner wheel well.
  4. The Front Bumper Fascia is the plastic cover over your front bumper.
  5. You may also have to remove the plastic cover that is located under the front of the hood over the radiator.It extends to both sides.

Only way it would work is to do the 01 conversion by switching the whole doghouse (fenders, hood, bumper, lights, etc.) It can be done though.

How do I remove a wrecked front fender assy/quarter panel?


The front fenders are connected to the A pillar above the the top hinge, at the bottom of the rocker panel seam, three bolts pass through the hood hinge support in the middle of the fender, four bolts on the radiator support, three vertical bolts on the top radiator brace, and one bolt at the rear of the wheelhouse to the cab body. Yes, the wheelhouse is spot welded to the fender and must be removed with it. Remove all the bolts listed as well as the bolts retaining the splash shield. The splash shield is a plastic liner connected to both the wheelhouse and the fender. Remove the headlight/cornering lamp assembly. The best way I have found to do this is to loosen the bumper to framebrackets and let the bumper assembly sag to gain clearance. If the upper bumper cover is removed to gain the clearance needed you will more than likely need to get a new cover as the nylon clips have a tendency to break during removal. Once the fender/wheelhouse assembly has been removed use a spot weld cutter to separate the wheelhouse from the old fender. Check the new fender for clearance and fit on the vehicle. Make all the needed adjustments to get the fender to fit correctly. Remove the fender and attach the wheelhouse. This should be done by spot welding. It can also be done using bolts. If using bolts place some 3M double stick weather strip adhesive tape in the seam to prevent direct contact of the parts to prevent rattles and squeaks. Drill the new fender to match the holes made by the spot weld cutter in the wheelhouse. Use stainless bolts and lock nuts so that the assembly can be services if needed. I would also recommend using Wurth Rust Inhibitor on all the seams to prevent rust and once cured it is an excellent adhesive and will reduce noise coming from moving body panels. Good Luck. It is not as bad as it sounds. Take your time and it will be worth the effort.
