Yes it is possible that the cold caused the adhesive to seperate. i would definitely replace it now as the new one wouldnt be as quick to seperate i mean the other one has lasted these years

My water dispenser was not working. Tried the defrost trick and still no water. Noticed water under the refrigerator.

The Dispenser supply usually flows through the bottom, inside toward the back to cool the water. If the puddle is near the back. refrigerator section it's probably this water cooling arrangement. Usually. a number of the tubing loops near the back bottom edge. Connections here or tubing itself may leak. It may also be an undetected leak from the Filter housing or the filter is not properly seated or possible filter housing connections. I have had good success with paper towel detection method. Wrap
or paste, tape towel to suspect leak locations. They will soon appear and point to the apparent leak.

Where is the feul filter located on an 87 mercedez 190 e 2.6

Hello. The fuel filter is located underneath the car, directly between the back seat doors; however, if you are jacking-up your car, it is much easier to reach it by using the drivers side.

Once you have the car leveraged, you will notice a cover/panel (note: the older the model, the more it will look like it is part of the car) with at lease two (2) screws (+/- 10/11 MM) holding the cover/panel in its place.

After you have removed the two (2) screws, the cover/panel will hang down - underneath is fuel filter and fuel pump and you will need a 14 MM open-ended wrench to remove the filter.

When removing, be cautious, the filter will have excess gas left in it and it will spill.

Regards, Joe. AND please rate my answer. Thank you!

Hi, I have a 1998 Chevy 3/4 ton 4x4, automatic transmission, has had problems for quite awhile shifting from second to third and now reverse is out. Shifting solenoid? I have the same problem only on the...

This is directed to the secound part of your question.I don't know much about transmissions but i'am sure someone on this site does. Might want to look on the back side of intake to see if there is any signs of the intake gasget leaking. The only other place it could come from is a freeze plug or head gasget but i have never known them to leak from there but its posible. If you got a puddle right under the hole on the inspection cover for flywheel witch is red in color it would be the front pump seal in trans.

2002 volvo s80 has leak at top of gas tank. can hear hissing sound. does the exhaust system need to be saw off to repair?

This should be repairable from the top.
Pull out the rear seat cushion and remove the two black round access covers to access the fuel pump covers. The seals for these covers tend to leak and if they are leaking, you will see it when the covers are off.
