First hold up tailgate with a strong broom handle or piece of wood or have a helper hold it up. The lift supports are pressed on to a ball post. There should be a retaining clip, that slides up slightly, on each end where they attach. Slide up clips or down depending on which end. Pry between end of shaft & ball post. They will pop off. Repeat on both ends. New ones just pop on & slide clip to hold in place.

Rear lifts on 2005 Lexus need to be replaced need to know how to do it take old ones off and install new ones.


All you have to do to remove the rear lifts is first raise the lift and support it with a piece of wood such as a cut length of 2x4.I suggest supporting both sides evenly as to not twist the lift out of shape.At the end of each lift where they attatch is a socket and socket clip which snaps onto a steel ball.On the socket side is a clip that wraps around the end of the lift to retain the ball.On one of the sides of the clip should be a groove to allow a small flathead screwdriver to be inserted under the clip to allow the clip to be pried up a little to allow for the ball to be popped out.This should be the case for both ends of each lift.The lifts are sold at most major auto parts outlets and run anywhere from 25 to 85 dollars a piece.My advice is not to cut corners on price because with gas charged lifts you get what you pay for.The new lifts should just snap on without the use of any tools.Remove blocks and you should be in business.I hope this has helped you....

2004 gmc envoy window won't go up rear wiper obstruction


I know this question is old, but I am responding so others with the same problem can see. I wired the Rear Window Motor Park Signal wire and the Rear Window Motor Speed Signal wire together and it completely bypassed the rear wiper motor. Now the window goes up and down. This doesn't fix the rear wiper motor, but you will be able to have access to it now that the window is out of the way

I made and album to show.

Need to remove door panel on 1984 thunderbird and this old man cant figure it out


To remove the door panel, remove any screws that are in the vicinity of pull handles and door pockets. These screws will be under little trim covers that you need to prise off to get to their heads. Look for the screws around the edge of the panel and also the screw in the latch release handle recess.
The lock knob, if there is one there, will have to be screwed off and then carefully work your way around the door, freeing the panel's clips from their holes in the door frame. (Doot panels are brittle and clip break out easily).
Finally the panel will probably have to be lifted out if the window slot. (If the panel does not come off, work out what is retaining it and remove that screw or slide it off the clip that is still holding the panel. Disconnect any electrical plugs behind the panel. Under the panel you will find a plastic dust sheet that is stuck to the door frame, remove this carefully, you will have to replace it before replacing the panel.

Buick LeSabre left front window will not close


Don it. Good half day for amateur. Get Chilton 86-99 Bonneville, 88, Lesabre manuel.. Tricky to find bolts are under end flaps on door close handgrips. Took me a day to figure that one out. Others under light at lip of back of door. Book indicates to strart with window 3/4 up if you can. Flip up window control at rear of panel. After all screws are out raise outer edge of armrest and look for notches 4" and 11-1/2" from rear of armrest to slide inward to remove. There are screws under the door handle too. Screws everwhere. When pulling bottom of panel from door lift with a notched bar to avoid tearing the fasteners out of the cardboard panel. Two screws behind seatbelt notch at top need to come out to allow positioning the glass. The panel at the bottom of the top opening can be removed for more fredom in positioning the glass when reinserting the ball in the lower track on the window. Tape glass with duct tape to keep it from falling. Drill the factory rivets that hold the old regulator and I replaced with stove bolts with nylon locknuts slotted head to the inside the car. Can't remember the size, probably 1/4 or 3/16". Remove speaker if in front bottom of door to use your hand to do work in the door. You must twist the regulator forward with window 1/2 down to remove the ball from the socket in the bottom sliding metal track at the bottom of the window. Don't drop the window after removing the socket, tape it in place. Don't know what you do if you cannot move it to 1/2 up position. By the way, the body shops say you must use rivets, not screws or it will shift, but I have had no problems with the screws for reinstallation several years old. The rivet they use take a big hydraulic pop rivet gun that you won't have. Good luck, I don't envy you. Need to do other window on my 91. The window control may not be the same on the Custom, mine is the Ltd. you may be able to remove the motor from the regulator in the door without removing the regulator if you can figure out how to get the bolts that hold the moter to the regulator. inside the door.

99 Ford Windstar Back door replacement


If I recall the wiring plugs in at the top you may be able to pull the plug with out droping the back of the headliner, But I am not sure, if not pull the two clips in the rear and one uper side panel for access. You will need someone to help yu remove the door. After you get the wiring loose at the roof and the washer hose, remove one nut/bolt out of each hinge at the door frame, and loosen the other two, remove the gas lift shocks by using a small screw driver to pry the clip back on the end that attaches to the door while some holds the door up, then remove the last two bolt/nuts in the door hinges, and remove the door. If you need to use parts on the old door like the lock cylinder yoou will need to remove the inner plastic panel to gain access to the clip that holds the cylinder. Replace in reverse order and adjust to fit properly before tightning the bolts at the hinges, then snap lift shocks back on and replug harness at roof and washer hose. Hope this helps.

Rear passenger electric window stuck in down position


That happened to mine, too. The cable that raises and lowers the window broke. I needed a new window motor assembly. If I recall, I got one used for less than $30, and I know I was able to replace it myself, curbside without special tools. You just need to make sure the window glass is taped up and unable to crash once you remove the old motor. The hardest part for me was figuring out how to remove the interior door assembly!
