My 2006 Hhr rear passenger side leaks onto the seat when it rains.t


This is a rather common issue with these trucks...and rather easy to fix.

There is a piece of rubber underneath the front trim that covers a hole in the upper firewall. Over time, the adhesive that holds it wears out & it works like a funnel...directing rainwater directly into the cavity & down into the cabin.

Top repair, lift the hood, and look at the base of the windshield. You'll see the large plastic piece of trim that goes across the width of the glass. Remove the screws holding it in place & remove it..

Now you should be able to see the rubber sheet that I mentioned earlier. Looks like an oblong piece of inner tube. I got a piece of thin sheet aluminum, and used the rubber piece as a template to cut it to the correct size. Then I used some adhesive caulking to bond the rubber piece to the bottom of the aluminum piece. Then I caulked around the perimeter of the hole & installed the new cover...then reinstalled the trim.

Works like a charm.. Cheap to do...and is a pretty quick fix. Maybe an hour in total.

Back window glass was busted out. I have a new back window glass. Need instruction on how to install glass & what all I need to install the glass securely & properly


Hello,

I would like to give you some advice from a certified mechanic that I am, and Highly suggest that you have a pro do this. Because you already have the glass, the cost for a pro to do this would be about a 100 bucks, especially if you drive to there glass shop. The reason for this, is it is a real touchy thing to do correctly with out busting the new glass, installing the other one, WITHOUT having it leak. And the major problem I see all the time is people trying to instal there own windshields or back windows. And then the leaks start. To put in your own glass, you first have to take off the rubber or medal ring around outside using a small angle type flat head, and inside as well, to help push it out. Then you remove broken one, and have to clean the channel real good, and then remove all the rubber sealer gunk that was put around it to seal the old window. Now, when putting new one in after everything is clean (cleaning and preparing is the time consuming part) then you apply special rubber sealer in channel , they sell it at most glass shops or at home depot. It is a sealer that turns to rubber when dried, then you have to out window in, and press good, then reapply trim. Now this all sounds easy, but this again, I highly suggest on this, IS NOT a do it yourself project, if you do not know what your doing, as the leak factor, possible damaging the new class and your inner and outer trim. I hope this helps Mike

Can I take out and install the windscreen myself at home..Is there a step by step how to do it process?


its a good idea to just call a glazier, usually the installation is included in the cost and they guarantee the window for up to 2 years from leaks and some types of crack damage.

If you still are decided on going hte self installation route you will need the following tools;

Glazier's knife
Flat head screw driver
Philips head screwdriver.
RTV compound or some kind of window adhesive
1/4in. socket set with driver
the process.
1. remove the windshield wiper arms.
2. remove window trims around the windshield
3. using the glazier's knife cut the old window adhesive around the windshield.
4. clean the adhesive off the windshield perch (that is the area around the windshield on the car)
5. carefully apply new adhesive to the windshield perch.
6. set the new windshield in place and press firmly around the borders of the new windshield you can tell when the windshield is set by the 'squished down' appearance of the adhesive.
7. replace the window trim and wiper arms. allow the adhesive to set for a few hours before allowing the windshield to take on water.
8. not necessary but i like to do this confirm the windshield does not leak by allowing a hose to run freely over the windshield.

***BE WARNED THE EDGES OF TEH WINDOWS ARE SHARP AND CAN CUT YOU VERY SEVERELY, ALSO THE GLAZIER'S KNOW IS SHARP AS WELL***

Need to remove door panel. How?


Door Panels - REMOVAL & INSTALLATION

The many different design interiors make it impossible to list each fastener location. The trim panels that must be removed are held in place by screws and clips. These locations vary from model to model. After removal of all the fasteners that you are aware of, if the trim panel is still firmly attached, you probably missed a hidden fastener. If this happens, gently and carefully pry the area looking for the location that doesn't flex. The location that does flex is where you'll find the fastener(s) you missed. Screws and retainers are usually hidden. Handle trim, reflectors, light lenses and other plastic pieces usually cover the main retaining screws. Take great care with the plastic trim panels. Plastic trim panels are usually very hard plastic and extremely easy to crack. The following steps can be used to guide you through the removal and installation of the trim panels, but you may need to alter these steps to your specific needs.
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Pull the inside door handle to the open position, unfasten the screw and remove the handle escutcheon.
  3. If equipped with manual locks, remove door inside locking rod knob.
  4. If equipped with manual windows, insert a suitable window regulator handle removal tool behind the handle. Disengage the retainer, then remove the handle.
  5. If equipped with power windows and locks, use a small flat-bladed prytool to carefully pry the switch plate up, then detach the power component electrical connectors.
  6. If equipped, remove the screws inserted through door armrest and pull handle assembly into door inner panel or armrest hanger support bracket.
  7. Lift the seat belt trim panel up and remove the hidden retaining screws.
  8. Remove the outside side view mirror trim plate retaining screw. Lift the panel up to disengage the retaining clip, then remove the trim panel from the door.
  9. On styles with courtesy lamps located in the lower area of the trim panel, disconnect the wiring harness at the lamp assembly.
  10. If equipped, use a suitable tool to pry the reflector plate from the side of the door panel.Remove bottom trim cover retaining screws, then remove the lower trim cover.
  11. Remove any necessary electrical connector CPA clips, then unplug the electrical connectors.
  12. On styles with integral armrests, remove the screws inserted through the pull cup into the armrest hanger support.
  13. Unfasten the door trim panel retaining screws. The locations of the screws will vary depending upon the year of model of vehicle. The screws are usually hidden, so be sure to look carefully to make sure you don't miss any.After all of the trim panel retaining screws are removed, slide a suitable trim panel removal tool between the door panel and door perimeter to carefully disengage all of the trim panel retaining buttons. Make sure to position the tool close to the fastener, or the trim panel may be damaged.
  14. Carefully lift the trim panel away from the door, checking to be sure all of the retaining buttons and screws and electrical connectors are unfastened.

To install:


Before installing the door trim panel, check that all trim retainers are securely installed to the panel and are not damaged. Replace damaged retainers as required.
  1. Connect electrical components where present.
  2. To install the door trim panel, pull door inside handle inward; then position the trim panel to the inner panel, inserting the door handle through the panel hole.
  3. Position the trim panel to the door inner panel so that the trim retainers are aligned with the attaching holes in the panel, and tap the retainers into the holes with a clean rubber mallet. Install all previously removed items.
  4. Install the remaining door panel components in the reverse order of removal.
  5. After installation, connect the negative battery cable, then check for proper attachment and operation of electric components, if so equipped.

Hope helps (remember rated and comment this).

How to install my back windshield in a mazda mx6 93


Easer said than done! First remove all the window trim from the inside of the car remove all outer window mouldings. Next take your special tool {electric knife} and cut the kit (rubber under the glass) all of the way around the window. Then use your handels (suction cups) and remove the glass. Clean the leftover kit off the flange then clean the flange with a good solvent. Install the new kit and place the new glass on the kit. Brush the glass sealer on the flange kit and 1/8 inch of the glass. Replace all mouldings and trim very carefully. If the glass didn't brake or leak your done. Needless to say if you don't have the experionce with glass don't try it. Instead call AUTO GLASS SPECIALIST.
