Do I require any special tools to replace the driver's side rear reflector on the bumper of a 2008 Hyundai Vera Cruz. It appears to snap in, but I don't want to break it. Thanks.


There's nothing in the manuals about special tools. I have the same problem. I think you'll have to remove the lower bumper in order to get good access to it. It appears that there is a black housing screwed into the bumper from the rear side and the lens would snap into that.

How to take passenger headlamp out of 328i bmw 2008 so it can be replaced?


2008 328i Passenger headlight assembly removal.

The headlight assembly is held in by 4 "star" bolts (size 25); 2 visible on the top of the assembly, 2 not visible or easily accessible.

The 2 bolts not so visible require that the front half of the wheel well come off and the front bumper or "nose" of the car.... The bumper is what needs to come off, but there are 2 bumper bolts hidden by the wheel well.

The wheel well is held in by 7mm bolts, 2 of which are actually bolted to the bumper on the bottom.

The front bumper is held on with 7mm bolts on the bottom edge, and star bolts, size 25, accessible on the top edge. (Hood open). Here were my steps.

1. Jack up the car on the side you are replacing, remove wheel.
2. Using 7mm socket, remove all the bolts to peel off the front half of the wheel well. With the wheel well out, you can see the 2 other star bolts holding the headlight assembly, but you can only remove one of them... even if you were good enough to get both removed, the headlight assemble will not push out through the bumper.... Keep going with bumper removal.
3. Remove 2, 7mm bolts of the front bumper that are now visible up near the outer edge of the headlight assembly.
4. At this point I removed the bumper's top edge start bolts and bottom edge 7mm bolts about 3/4 of the way across the bumper...
5. The bumper is very flexible and you can now pull it back , reach in, and get that last difficult star bolt on the headlight assembly....
6. Don't forget the one electrical connector....
7. I also recommend testing the new assembly by plugging it in before removing anything

Remove front bumper 1999 tarago


Hi
This is how you remove the front bumpers from 1990-2000 model Toyota taragos/Previas
First if your tarago/previa has a bull bar it has to be removed, before you can remove the front bumper.

There are 6 X 18 mm bolts secured to the bull bar brackets, remove the 3 x 18mm on the left and 3 x 18mm on the left and place the bull bar in a secure area to reattach later, don't be surprised if its full of rust it needs to be sand blasted, rust treated and repainted.
The next step is to remove the bull bar brackets to do this you must remove the grille to access the 4 x 18mm bolts on the inside of the grille 2 x 18mm on the left and 2 x 18mm on the right.

Open the bonnet of your tarago/previa there is a screw at the top of the center of the grille that has to be removed and placed in a container to reassemble later.

The next step is a bit tricky but with persistence and practice you will get better, the grille has four plastic clips that hold the grill in place.


Now listen carefully, you cant just pull on the grille firmly and hope that strength alone will pop the grille, these clips are designed to open when the grille is pushed into place so the top and bottom of the clip have to be depressed to slide the insert out to remove the grille, but you can depress one side a time it dosent have to be both at the same time.


It just takes take and patience to do, start from the top left clip, pull the grille towards you and with a flat blade screw driver look down the grill and press the top of the clip still pulling the grille, the clip will depress but now you have to do the bottom of that clip too.


There are gaps in the grille you need a tool like a L shape pick or an interior tool shaped like a L for removing door trims, you can buy these items at $2 dollar shops, you feed the tool through the gap in the grille and place it under the bottom of the clip and when you press down it lifts up depressing the bottom of the clip while you are still pulling the grille towards you.


Once that clip is out stay on the left side and do the left bottom clip repeat the process and then do the right top clip and then the bottom right clip, when the grill is out push all the clips back into the grille so you don't loose them and place grille in a secure place until your ready to reassemble.


When you reassemble the grille you just place the grille over the insert holes and push them back into place they will automatically snap back into position and then screw the center top grill screw back in.


Now the grille is out, you will need an extension on your ratchet to reach and remove these bolts 4 X 18mm bolts, 2 on the left and 2 on the right, there is a dryer bottle on the left or right of your vehicle depending on country, so the extension needs to be reasonable long.


Once the brackets are removed place the bolts into your container, there are 4 x10mm bottom bumper bolts securing the bumper onto the reinforcement bar remove them.


Then there are 2 X 10mm upper corner bumper bolts securing the bumper to the body remove them, and then the last 2 X 10mm to be removed are at the bottom of the corner bumper secured on to a rail.


Once these 10mm bolts are removed the front bumper will slide off, place the bolts in your container and reassemble when ready.


Cheers

How do I remove the panel that hold the rear parking sensors on a 2001 S550?


There are six bolts from the bumper into the rear cross member to remove, accessible from inside the boot. You'll have to remove the rubber plugs to get to two of them. After that, remove the boot lining (that's the "trunk" lining if you're a Yank) and you'll see four bolts (two on each side) that secure the bumper by screwing downwards through the metal wing into the top sides of the bumper. Now go underneath the car, and there are two bolts accessible at the rear of the bumper, accessible from beneath. Now you need to uncrew a pair of 10mm plastic nuts under the wheel arch lining/mudflap and two which are behine the rear wheels. Fold the wheel arch lining away from the bumper and there's a screw in the very front of the sides of the wing right at the point where it connects to the wheel arch. remove these (one on each side) and the bumper will slide backwards and off the body. Voila. Piece of cake. Remember to disconnect the wiring to the rear sensors and pull the multiplug through out of the hole, carefully removing the grommet.

Re-fitting is a bit trickier, so use a couple of beer crates or boxes to hold the bumper up below the rear as you line up the tabs on the air exits and slide the bumper back.

How do adjust the headlights


Hi there,

The headlight assembly is well secured, that's for sure. The bumper cover will need to be removed to gain access. To start, there are plastic trim fasteners that expand when the plastic screw is driven into them. There are three in each fender-well that attach in the forward portion securing the bumper cover.

Remove these by backing out the screw and pulling out the stud. If the screws do not come out, you can use a flat prying tool of sorts to pull them through the layers. There are two tricky ones that are between the bumper cover and the fender. The easiest way to get them out is to slip a flat prying tool between the fender and the bumper.

Now for the bottom of the bumper cover. There are two more of the plastic fasteners under the lower portion of the grill of the bumper cover that will also need removal. Next are a series of 10mm bolts that will need to be removed from the under side of the bumper. There should be about nine of them to be removed. Now for the top of the cover, there are two 10 mm bolts to be removed. The bumper cover should be ready for removal. I'd suggest you have someone to aid you so that the cover does not fall and get scuffed.

Slide the cover FWD from each side, there are receptors that they fit into. If you have fog lights and an air temp gauge, they will need to be unplugged after the cover is pulled away. Now you have access to the light assembly. On the headlight assembly there is a bolt and a nut on the top that get removed, a bolt on the side of the fender and a bolt almost directly below the main bean portion (recessed a little). To put it all back together is relatively simple now that you know the procedure.

Hope this helps...

How do i replace the headlights


Front bumper requires removal to gain acsess to the lower 10mm bolts. Bumper comes off by removing the 2 10mm bolts on the top of the bumper then unscrew the 2 T30 screws in the front wheel arch liner (bumper side) and then you will be able to see a 10mm bolt reversed into a bracket at the top of the bumper from a inside veiw, remove and repeat for the other side. Then its 3 10mm bolts that secure the front under tray (if yours has one). Then there will be another 10mm bolt to the wing side of the headlamp from a above veiw. Bumper should then just pull off and watch for the connector for the fog lamp harness.

How do you remove the front bumper cover on a 98 honda accord sedan EX


Apply the parking brake and raise the vehicle and support it securely on jackstands.

Disconnect the negative battery cable, then the positive battery cable and wait two minutes before proceeding further (make sure you have the code if you have an anti-theft radio because you will need it after disconnecting the battery).

Working under the vehicle, detach the screws securing the lower edges of the bumper cover (use a small screwdriver to pop the center button up on the plastic fasteners, but do not try to remove the center buttons. They stay in the ferrules)

Remove the bolts, screws and plastic pins on each side retaining the bumper cover to the splash shields. Remove the bolt on each side where the bumper cover attaches to the fender.

Working at the top, detach the retaining bolts (2) securing the bumper cover to the hood latch support. Remove the cover.

When you put it back, make sure the tabs along the top edge of the bumper cover fit into the corresponding clips on the body before attaching the bolts and screws. An assistant is helpful.

Hope this helps you.

Removing headlight assembly


I actually did this just last night. It is somewhat complicated to explain, yet easy to do. The headlight assembly is well secured, that's for sure. I failed to take pictures, so I will do my best to put it all in words. The bumper cover will need to be removed to gain access. To start there are plastic trim fasteners that expand when the plastic screw is driven into them (Like what you would use in sheetrock). There are 3ea in each fender-well that attach in the forward portion securing the bumper cover. Remove these by backing out the screw and pulling out the stud. If the screws do not come out, you can use a flat prying tool of sorts to pull them thru the layers. There are 2ea tricky ones that are between the bumper cover and the fender. The easiest way to get them out is to slip a flat prying tool between the fender and the bumper. Now for the bottom of the bumper cover. There are 2ea more of the plastic fasteners under the lower portion of the grill of the bumper cover that will also need removal. Next are a series of 10MM bolts that will need to be removed from the under side of the bumper. If I recall correctly there are 9ea of them to be removed. Now for the top of the cover, there are 2ea 10 MM bolts to be removed. The bumper cover should be ready for removal. It is best to have some one aid so that the cover does not fall and get scuffed. Slide the cover FWD from each side, there are receptors that they fit into. If you have fog lights and an air temp gauge, they will need to be unplugged after the cover is pulled away.

On the headlight assembly there is a bolt and a nut on the top that get removed, a bolt on the side of the fender and a bolt almost directly below the main bean portion (recessed a little). To put it all back together is relatively simple now that you know what makes it tick. Hope that this helps!
