SOURCE: right rear shock absorber detached from the top mounting point

Turns out that after 26 years and 233 thousand miles, the original strut gave up the ghost: Rust! I took the shock strut assembly out of a 'spare parts' Honda Accord I keep and replaced the broken one in the Honda I am now driving. Mechanically the car is still excellent, but the car is destined to dissolve around me! To remove the whole assembly required taking out one 14mm bolt at the bottom and three 12mm bolts at the top, some WD 40, several pieces of wood for leverage and a heavy mallet.. Since there is a heavy duty coil spring involved, one should take out the bottom bolt first and lift the bottom of the strut free from its position, ( this is where I used a long 2x4 and another piece of wood as the fulcrum point to pry the strut upward) Then undo the top 3 bolts and the whole unit falls out. You will also need to detach the brake fluid line that uses the strut itself as an anchor. The easiest way is to take the line off from the back of the brake drum housing ( 9mm nut) and remove the horseshoe clip and push the curved metal brake line through the small hole where the line is anchored to the strut. Use care as you will need to reattach the brake line again after installing the next shock strut. (Coil spring compression tool required) Needless to say, you will need to jack the car up and remove the rear tire first to access the whole thing.

Loud banging noise frome rear of car under normal acceleration and even worse accelerating during a left turn. makes the car jolt pretty good. 2000 mustang gt

Were the rear muffler tailpipe hangers checked for being broken or missing? even Engine mounts will cause this and because it does making a left turn you would want to check out the right rear one especially and of course if needed replace all of them...also meaning the hangers for the exhaust system..

A line is leaking coolant under the car(the line is metal) what is the kine called. thanks

Those are probably your rear coolant lines. Try to follow them to see if they end at the rear of the van. Also check your water pump it could be that leaking and it just appears it's coming from a pipe. I have a 2002 with 113.000 miles and my lines just rusted and exploded this past winter. Once they do rust through the van will immediately overheat. I am not sure if this is DIY job unless you have the tools to bend pipe. It cost me $400 to get all of rear coolant lines repaired.

1995 Saab 190 convertible, the rear windshield is detached at the top and bottom. It there a way to re attach this properly. The strip the window is supposed to be attached to is torn on the outside but is...

I'm not sure if it is exactly the same problem or not. In my case the glass detached/unglued, on both sides, from the strip that is sewn to the top. I used Clear RTV Silicone Adhesive and Sealant made by ProSeal and purchased at Harbor Freight.

Be careful not use acrylics . Even though they will water proof, they become brittle with temperature changes. You want and adhesive that remains flexible.

Good luck.

Rear window defogger doesn't work. Fuse appears to be OK. Light on control panel lights up but rear window doesn't defog.

Either your control module is burned out or your window contacts have become detached. Permatex offers an electrically conductive adhesive for the latter (less than $10). For the module, it's a combo radio antenna and defrost control. It's located on passenger side in back at the pillar. You have to take off the fabric panel to get to it.
