But I didn't think anything of it. While messing with the brake lights I noticed that it's definitely cockeyed. Looks like the subframe is crooked. Can I just loosen the bolts at the 4 mounting points and subtly twist it?leave the four bolts connected and twist other than subtly (if its not just the seat that is misaligned on its hinges). The best way would be to use a dirt bike frame straightener but its likely your under tail will get in the way.,,

How do I collimate my binoculars please because they have double vision.


It'll depend a bit on the root of the problem.
You can get double vision from properly aligned binoculars if the optics are too far apart or too close, relative to the spacing of your eyes. you'll need to bend them at the central hinge to make sure that both eyes are centered on the input lenses.

If you're still getting the migraine-inducing double image, they probably got dropped at some point. This can be a wide range of difficulty to fix. Here's what I've done in some past cases with flea market binocs that I bought cheap due to the skewed alignment.

For many binocs, the upper (eyeball end) and/or lower (field end) are screwed to the central body of the binocs, where all the folding optics are to widen the lenses from your eye spacing. If they have been dropped, (or disassembled and put back together sloppy), then they may be cockeyed at one of these joins. Look at each seam to the central body and see if any of them have a gap, especially one that is larger on one side than another. You can then apply firm un-screwing twist and see if it will unscrew. if it will, and before you unscrew it all the way, wash your hands and clear a clean surface to work on. Unscrew the segment, inspect the threads for crud that might have got in while cockeyed. Then visually square up the component and gently screw it back in. if it was mis-assembled, the threads may be a bit gummed, and you'll have to be patient to keep the optic square, and back off and start again if it tries to drag over to cockeyed threading. Once it's square, gently working the thread back into place by turning back and forth a half turn back, 3/4 forward, half back, 3/4 forward, can help the thread recuperate. Eventually, it should screw all the way in, firmly, and be square. No more double vision.

For some models, like my Nikon fixed pocket binocs, there's no zoom and just a focus knob. On my brothers pair, it got cockeyed. In that case, I gently unscrewed the locking rings for the glass on the eyeball side. One of them was loose and the lens was a bit cockeyed. In that case, I removed, it (wearing nitrile gloves), cleaned it with eyeglasses cleaning solution and a microfiber cloth, put it back in, screwed the ring in firmly,and it was good to go.

Bottom line, if you have some basic DIY skills, unscrewing the entry optics, or the optics sections, isn't too big a deal. Just be mindful not to let dust (or worse) get inside while you have things open. You can get a lot of fix just from that much.

Good Luck!

What is a sub frame on a auto


The Subframe is a metal frame like enclosure that surrounds the Engine /Transmission. The Engine/ Trans drops into the Subframe and in turn is bolted to it via Engine Mounts and the Subframe is in turn bolted to the uni-body of your car via Subframe Mounts.

How to install transmission solenoid in a 2001 pontiac bonneville 2.8


The solenoids are under the side pan on the transmission on the drivers side. You will have to go through the drivers side fender well. Remove the wheel, brake caliper, spindle, take the rack and pinion loose, install engine support, place jack under left side (drivers side) of subframe, remove subframe mounting bolts, loosen (do not remove) right side subframe mounting bolts, lower left side of subframe 4 to 6 inchs, go to engine support and lower engine and transmission down just enough so that transmission side pan can be removed. Thanks and good luck with your repairs.

2002 hyundai santa fe , what is an open recall, 0pen recall# 089 91b024r3 .9


There is NO open recall on the Santa Fe, However, there is one on the 1999-2004 SONATA (EF) and 2001-2004 XG300/XG350 (XG) vehicles that are registered and operated in specified “salt belt” states may exhibit corrosion damage to the subframe assembly. If specified levels of corrosion damage have occurred as described in this bulletin, replace the front subframe with a new subframe that incorporates additional holes in the upper and lower panels. If a front subframe does not require replacement, add drainage holes and treat the subframe with rust-proofing material.

Steering Rack boot replacement


In my opinion, removing the front subframe makes this job much easier.

Jack up and suitably support the front of the car so it is in a wheels free state.
With wheels removed;

  • Remove the anti-roll bar drop links from the anti-roll bar
  • Free off the lower arm ball joints off
  • Remove the track rod ends from the swivel hubs
  • Remove the nut and bolt and special clip on the lower steering column universal joint
  • loosen off and disconnect the feed and return pipes to the power ram (beware stinking power steering fluid pouring everywhere!)
Steering and suspension wise, the subframe should be free!



  • Remove the nut and bolt that secures the lower engine mounting to its bracket (the bolt that goes through the big round rubber mount at the back of the engine)
  • Disconnect all relevant gear linkage rods (this will be clear when you are under there!)
  • Support the subframe with a jack or somesuch and free off the 6, 18mm bolts that secure the subframe to the body shell.
  • remove all subframe mounting bolts.
  • lower the jack that is supporting the subframe, it should all drop quite nicely and then get stuck on the steering column universal joint! A good old college shove frees this and then you should be able to remove your subframe assembly from under the car.

Cant remove power steering rack


The racks are a bit tough on these cars since theyre on the subframe. a lot of extensions and a swivel will help it come off the subframe but hate to break it to you : you will need to drop the entire subframe to pull off the steering rack. The subframe holds the motor and suspension. Its odd though that you need to remove the rack. Perhaps the rack isnt an issue. Can you post up what your issue is?

How do i change the subframe bushes on my jaguar xj6


I am assuming you mean the rear ones! you neeed to jack up and support the car, as you will be moving the rear subframe support the car on the forward end of the large arms that go to the floor (it is allways solid there) depending on the make and condition of the exhaust you might get away without disconnecting too much of it. support the subframe centrally with a jack, unbolt the 4 nuts and bolts that hold the mount to the subframe, lower the subframe enough to unbolt and change the rubber mounts, if the exhaust or brake flexy stop it dropping enough to change the mounts disconnect them, refit and tighten.

Volvo s40-2000


hi, is this front or rear anti-rollbar? Front ones are a right pain, you have to drop the front subframe for access. If you don't have a wheelfree ramp then it's not a job for the faint hearted! You also need to disconnect the steering column to allow the subframe to drop far enough to get at the bolts that secure the collars over the bushes. Before you disconnect the steering column, point the wheels straight ahead and remove the key so that the steering lock stops the steering wheel turning, this is to prevent damage to the contact reel for the air bag, which can be damaged if the steering is turned too far beyond normal rotation!
