The bolt doesn't release the internal clips as it does with the lower section. I've tried wiggling and even prying the pieces apart, no luck.

Can you use a pick to push the clips apart? I Cannot find any service info on the connector. Most i have seen the bolt holds it with no clips.You will just have to see how the clips are supposed to release and manually release them with a pick or small screwdriver

How do I remove the inner door panel on a 2007 GMC Yukon XL Denali to get access to the door opening/lock rod system?


Welcome to Fixya

Disconnect the negative battery cable first to ensure your safety. You will see a small trim panel a few inches above the interior door handle (behind the armrest). Pry off the panel with the trim panel tool or a flat-head screwdriver. Remove the two 10 mm bolts that are behind the small trim panel. Pry off the vertical trim panel mounted on the handle that connects the power window controls and the door panel. Once the panel is removed, use the socket wrench to pull out the two bolts behind it. Pry off the small plastic piece around the door lock tab (upper part of door handle). Once the piece is removed, detach the door lock tab with your hand. Unfasten the sail panel using the trim panel tool or the flat-head screwdriver. The sail panel is on the corner of the door panel, directly across from the outside mirror. The panel is only attached by clips. Pull your interior door handle toward you, and pry off the trim panel behind it. Remove the bolt made visible with the panel removed. Pry up the power window control panel. Then unhook the electrical harness from the rear of the panel. Use the door trim tool to unhook the door panel clips. Insert the tool between the door panel and the door, and release the clips. There are several clips on each side of the door panel. Push the door panel up, then pull it away to remove it from the door.'

Thank you for using Fixya!

I'm trying to install a new blend actuator but I can't get the radio out. The actuator is behind the radio so what bolts,screws, adhesives or welds need to come out/off to get to this actuator? I'd...


As far as getting the radio out, it is fairly simple. On the factory radio you will see four small holes on the front faceplate. There is a special "tools" that makes it easier, but you can fabricate some yourself from a section of a coat hanger. Cut off two pieces of coat hanger about four or five inches long. Bend them into a U shape so that they can be inserted into a pair of holes on the radio. All four holes must have a piece of coathanger or tool installed at the same time. Don't insert the pieces too far. You can probably feel when you have inserted them far enough. It will release the retention clips on the radio. By gently wiggling the radio back and forth while pulling outward it will slide out. It may take a few tries to master releasing the clips but with patience you can do it.

Rt front axle broke how to repair


If there is no other damage aside from the outer CV joint being out.

1. Jack car up and support on jack stand on the affected side.
2. Remove wheel
3. Remove center hub nut
4. Turn wheels all the way to one side or the other. This is to gain access to the lower ball joint. One way will be easier than the other depending on how the bolt is installed.
5. Remove lower ball joint bolt and nut
6. Separate the ball joint by using a large pry bar or pipe to push the control arm down and hit side of joint with hammer.
7. Once joint has released pry down to free control arm from ball joint shaft.
8. Now tap the outer cv joint part still trapped in the hub out
9. Remove remaining axle from transmission by using a pry bar to pry it out of the transmission.
10. Reinstall new axle into transmission and then start into hub. Make sure to shove axle firmly into transmission so as to get past the C-clip lock.
11. Pry lower control arm down to allow the ball joint to be reassembled. Slip ball joint shaft back into control arm.
12. Reinstall bolt and nut
13. Install hub nut
14. Install wheel

I am trying to remove the lower trim panel on a 2005 Carolla. The manual says "use a trim tool (or small screwdriver) to release the clips" How do they release? Do I push straight in, pry to side, etc?


IF ONE PIECE NORMALLY USE A 2 PRONG FORK AND PULL UP, IF IT LOOKS LIKE A SMALL PLUG IN THE MIDDLE OF CLIP THEN PUSH CENTRE IN THEN LIFT OUT

How do you replace gas filter on 1999 town car


spread 2 clip legs slightly and pry up from other end while doing so and clip should release and pull up through. Slide back through and snap in to re-install. May take a little wiggling & pulling to get connections apart. Be sure to relieve pressure prior to doing this.

How to replace rear shocks on 96 bmw 328i


Inside the car carefully pry up the speaker covers off the rear parcel shelf and undo the two screws that secure the speaker assembly onto the shelf. Release the clip and carefully from inside the boot pull the speakers away and disconnect the speaker connections
Open the boot and remove the carpet from the rear "wall" by unscrewing the 4 retaining "nuts" at first by hand and then using a phillips screwdriver.
bootcarpet.jpg

Lift this out and lift out the floor carpet. Carefully pull the side carpets away from the boot interior. They are held in 3 places : on one of the retaining bolts by the rear carpet, by a metal ledge at the top near the rear lights and by the ledges on the plastic parts in the boot.

Jack up the car and chock the front wheels so it can't roll anywhere. Also put something underneath the wheels so they cannot drop down when you undo the shock mounts.
reartower.jpg
Using a 13mm socket undo the two top shock mounts ONLY once you have supported the wheels so that you dont put stress on the suspension arms. Pry off the rubber dust cover.
shocklwrbolt.jpg
Undo the lower shock retaining bolt and carefully lift the entire shock away from the car.
oldcompleteshock.jpg
The old knackered shock and shock mount!
undotopmount.jpg
You need to recover the lower cup, upper cup and bump-stop from the old shock. To do this you need to remove the top mount from the old shock. If you look at the top of the piston it has a flat section to it. Get a set of mole grips and clamp them onto the flat section, do this as tight as you can so that you dont round it and using and adjustable spanner undo the piston retaining nut whilst holding the piston shaft using the molegrips.
keepthesebits.jpg
You need to recover 3 pieces from the piston shaft. 1- the bump stop, 2 - lower cup, 3 upper cup. Using the new shock mount as a template cut out a gasket from cardboard (the box the mount came in is ideal) to go between the upper shock mount and the suspension tower. Incidently according to the haynes manual this is made of rubber but mine was made of card! under no circumstances put the upper shock mount directly into the suspension tower.
newshock2.jpg
Put the 3 pieces onto the new shock and tighten the piston nut to secure the shock mount and put your new gasket onto the upper mount.
reartowernoshock.jpg
Use the opportunity to clean the suspension turret - do the top and the underneath making sure it's all clean and dry.
Put the new complete assembled shock into the suspension tower and either get someone to do up the top bolts a few turns or rest the bottom of the shock in the inner circumference of the wheel and lift it into position by lifting it up using the piston nut and then do the bolts up a few turns.
Bolt the bottom shock bolts back into place after putting some nut-lock on the threads and tighten them up securely, then tighten up the top mount securing bolts and put on the rubber dust cap.
bootcarpet.jpg
Put the side carpets back in making sure the speaker cables aren't trapped behind, putting in the end nearest the tail lights first making sure it's behind the retaining ledge both at the top and the end. Then do the centre section and finally over the bolt at the rear of the boot. Put the rear carpet back in and do up the retaining nuts. Reconnect the speakers and engage the lip and push the speaker up until the clip clips into place and do up the securing screws and clip the speaker cover back on.

How to replace a headlight bulb on an 2001 Eclipse


Under the hood and directly behind the headlight you are trying to replace the bulb in, there is a rubber piece that is circular with 2 flat "handles" on it. Disconnect the wires from this, then wiggle the rubber piece out. Behind this is a clip. Release the clip and the bulb should come out. Replace the bulb, close the clip, make sure the rubber piece is back on tightly, and reconnect the wires.

Best part about it : No tools needed.

I just did this the other day with my 2001 eclipse GT.
