How to install a back glass in a 05 dodge magnum wagon. The back lid glass

If you would please look at the glass and the metal door in which it attaches, I believe you will see there is a black "tar" that holds it in place.
First, disconnect the electric rear window defroster wire, if you have one.
You would, using a very thin steel wire, separate the glass from the "tar".
Then, clean the tar out of the channel, and prepare the rear door for new tar and the new glass.
It sticks on.

Our wheel wells have all been plastic for years..and amplify sound of road ..wheels..suspension components etc..just like an ovation guitar..
$30 ..SOLUTION>>..spray chip stop fibrated (sound deadening) tar/rubber spray onto the plastic wheel the same with firewall..and under side of vehicle..this will also protect from chip damage and rust..a sound tech with the movie industry in Toronto could not believe the dramatic effect..get about 3 cans from Canadian Tire in Canada or your auto stuff place near u..
NOTE>>.. wear plastic glove and old shirt to keep spray off your fingers and arms..
This works for all vehicles and is about the cheapest upgrade one can careful of paint..stuff rubs off/or use cleaning fluid..use piece of cardboard to keep spray off stuff you do not want to spray paint/tires/muffler..
ps Shell gas rocks (good mileage/power/cleaning..nitrogen enriched..)
Esso gas ..has a lot of sulphur..cabbies in Toronto say not as much mileage
and dirties engine up some..bob

Should the rear wheels on a fenian fy250 motorcycle trike be exactly vertical

In theory both rear wheels on a production trike designed for use on public roads and highways should remain vertical when the vehicle is not loaded beyond its rated gross vehicle weight limit and the vehicle is resting static on a level surface. If the vehicle has indepenent rear suspension, examine the dampening control or shock absorbers for pre-load adjustments. If there are pre-load adjusters make certain both sides are adjusted to the same setting as the preload can control ride height and affect wheel camber. Also, if the vehicle had been subjected to big pot holes or one of the two rear wheels ran over road debris, inspect for a bent stub axle.
On unequal road surfaces or when cornering at speed, one wheel may monentarly lean in or out depending on the dynamics and G force but should return to vertical position when the vehicle is running streight and level.

If the vehicle has a solid differential both wheels should be aligned vertical as well. Unless as previously described and the vehicle is on an uneven road surface, it will appear one or both wheels are leaning but they actually remain perpendicular to the road surface.

My throttle body on my Saturn SL2 is NASTY!! It's got about a 1/4 inch of black tar inside it. Could that be why it is smoking? I'm not losing any oil, antifreeze, or tranny fluid. It's a 1996...

That could be why: So little air may be getting through, that it is causing it to run very rich. First thing to do, while the engine is running, spray a little of that EFI cleaner down the throttle body. Then, IMMEDIATELY, shut the engine off (You don't want tar going INTO the engine). After that, try and get the throttle body off, and CAREFULLY scrape away the road ****. Don't damage the injectors. Clean it nice, and see if it runs a bit better. Best wishes, and I'm curious how it got so much build up! It could cause worse problems down the road if there is tar in the engine ...
