How to remove and replace the plastic collar on the metal tube

I have obtained a new plastic collar and metal tube to replace the plastic collar that my son broke on our 18 volt B and D Grasshog. I am having a hard time figuring out how to remove the lower metal tube which is fastened to the motor assembly so that I can slide on the new plastic collar.
Thanks for your help.

    Got a new tube assembly - no problem.  Even got an exploded parts diagram!  I still am unable to get the thing off the motor.  It appears that even that will not help - it will be another problem getting the wiring out of the broken tube and then putting it thru the new one. HELP!!

Thanks for the effort but the problem I'm having is not electrical. It is that long grasses build up on the spindle and drag the rpm down to almost nothing. I have to clean the grass out but I can't find a way to do this without taking the case off.

If you have the model # NST2018 then the only thing wrong is that a .30 cent retainer clip at the upper end of the spindle shaft is missing. A local hardware store should have one that will work. There should be a thin washer that will go between the sleeve bearing and the retainer clip that will be inside the housing as well.

Go to the Black & Decker website for this product, scroll down and under "Product Details" there is a tab marked "instruction manuals". There are three to choose from, but the last two have the same instructions on how to replace the spool or how to thread bulk line.

Hope this helped!

What do you remove to have access to spark plugs


Tools you will need before you start1. 1/4" ratchet2. 1/4" extention3. 10 mm socket, 1/4" drive4. small flat bladed screwdriver5. 3/8" ratchet6. 3/8" long extention7. 5/8" spark plug socket, 3/8 " drive8. air compressor with blow gun or can of compressed air9. long needle nose pliers10. 1/4" internal diameter rubber hose 8 inches long11. wire coat hanger12. neverseez lubricantProcedure1. Remove the two 10 mm cap nuts on the top plastic housing over the engine2. Remove the two fasteners on the back of the housing and remove the plastic cover3. You will see four plastic blocks with four wire clips on each block. These blocks are individual coils for each sparkplug.4. Use compressed air to blow out debris around the blocks5. Use the small flat bladed screwdriver to carefully lift up on the tab that holds the electrical connector onto the block and slide the wire clip off the block.6. Remove the 10 mm bolt that holds the plastic block onto the engine. Use the needle pliers to firmly grasp the plastic screw and pull straight up to remove it
7. Loosen the 10 mm nut on end of the plastic rail that holds the wiring harness for the blocks so that the round plastic washer on the bottom of the block will not break when you pull off the block8. Carefully pull the plastic block out of the engine. There is a 4 inch tube attached to the block that extends into the engine to the spark plug. It will take some twisting and pulling but you must be careful not to catch the back part of the round plastic washer that you cannot see, on the bottom of the plastic wiring harness.9. The spark plug is at the bottom of the 4 inch hole.10. Blow compressed air down the hole to remove debris11. Use a 5/8 sparkplug socket with a rubber collar on the 3/8" extention to remove the spark plug. The rubber collar will hold onto the spark plug as it is removed.12. The NGK website recommends making sure the spark plugs have the correct gap .044 but the spark plug box says not to adust the gap because you might damage the needle point iridium tip. The new spark plug has a protective cardboard tube that is removed.13. Spark plugs can stick inside aluminum heads and break off when you try remove them, leaving only the threads of the plug inside the engine which will necessitate removing the head to remove broken spark plug. Putting neverseez on the threads of the new spark plug will prevent that in future spark plug changes14. Now comes an interesting choice. You can use the rubber tube over the neck of the spark plug to slowly drop it down the hole and hand tighten it or you can use the spark plug socket with the rubber collar. If you use the spark plug socket, the rubber collar will stick to the plug and you will pull off the extention, leaving the socket in the hole. A pair of long needlenose pliers will reach into the hole and remove the socket, but the rubber collar may remain on the plug and you will have to bend a piece of coathanger with a short 90 degree tip to reach into the hole and pull out the rubber collar. The rubber collar is there to prevent you from cocking a regular 5/8" deep socket at an angle which will break off the neck of the sparkplug, necessitating another 10 dollars and another trip to the auto parts store.15. After the spark plug is hand tight, give it 1/2 turn more.16. Replace the square block, being sure that the black silicone gasket on the bottom of the round plastic washer does not get bound up on the engine post where the 10 mm bolt goes. Tighten the bolt17. replace the electrical clip.18. Go to the next spark plug and repeat the procedure.19. After the last spark plug is done, be sure to retighten the 10 mm nut on the wiring harness rail20. Replace the plastic cover over the engine and you are done

In order to replace the bulbs,the headlight assemblies need to be removed from t


On late model LINCOLN TOWN CARS In order to replace the bulbs,the headlight assemblies need to be removed from the car.The following instructions make it easy.
The grill has a top cover with clips that are unscrewed.There are about 6 of them.After cover removal,remove the headlight assembly by pulling up on the two metal tabs on each light assembly.or on some 2005 and newer models the few bolts holding in the light assembly.There is an access hole for a 1/4 inch extension to fit through for the bottom bolt.The bolts are 8mm.Then in the middle of the light assembly there is also a plastic tab that must be pushed down with a screwdriver and then the light assembly comes out.Once the electrical connectors are unplugged,the headlight assembly can be removed from the car ,put face down on a towel and disassembled so that the bulbs can be replaced.
The older versions have plastic tabs holding the back covers on,and the newer versions have T 27 torx screws holding the covers together.After the back cover is removed,you will see a collar that holds in the electrical socket that connects to the bulb. mark the collar position with a felt pen.Rotate the collar counterclockwise to remove it.The bulb and socket are then separated and the new bulb installed.Make sure the collar goes on first,as it will not slide over the bulb,only the bulb connector.Seat the new bulb,install the plug onto the bulb then the lock collar and reinstall the back covers.Do not touch the glass bulb surface with your fingers,as the oil will cause the glass to shatter when hot.Handle the bulb by the base only.
Before installing the light assembly into the car plug in the main connectors and check that the light works. If all is o.k., re-install the light into the car.After that, check to make sure that the lock tabs are all in place.Re- install the grill cover and the clips.Make sure that the hole in the grill cover on the driver's side goes over the hood switch for the alarm properly.Check final operation after re-assembly of all pieces.

I have a pioneer car sterio that I need to remove how do i get it out of my dash? do i need a special tool


If it's an aftermarket stereo, it can be removed without taking the dash apart. It depends on how it was installed. Remove the thin plastic collar from around the radio, it may be easier to remove it with the faceplate detached. Look on the sides for thin metal tabs you can press then in and slide the radio out carefully with a flat screw driver.

Some installers will screw the radio into a dash assembly and the radio will not come out until you remove the dash. Usually cars that have a black plastic pocket either directly above or below the radio are screwed in and don't come out as easy.

If you remove the faceplate and collar, and see a thin metal cage around the radio it should slide out nice and easy with a flat screw driver or the "keys" that come with the radio when purchased new. These "keys" are just long skinny flat pieces of metal and are real cheap.

Need to replace fuel filler neck on 1999 dodge dakota


I just replaced one today. I found this post looking for an answer myself and ended up just going for it. The metal at the end of the plastic hose is a clamp that was compressed with a special tool. Here is what I did.

I cut the compression clamp open with a Dremel and a cut off wheel. Be careful not to cut through to the plastic. I did a little at a time the whole length of the clamp and cut through only at the end about 3mm. I then put a screwdriver in there any was able to pry it up and break the clamp in half since I had cut most of the way through it. Take your time.

With the clamp off it will still be hard to get the metal tubes out. I had badly rusted tubes so I broke them off near the plastic tube and bent the end inside the plastic a little with a hammer. I was then able to pull the vent tube out. On the fill tube I bent it to move it away from the plastic enough to get tin snips in there. I cut it and could then get the tube out.

It looked like there was some kind of rubber ring on the tubes. I used some sealer on the tube when I slid it in the plastic and used regular hose clamps. Make them very tight. You don't want an air leak.

I have an 11 year old, single handle shower control that when turned off has dripping. I have taken off the handle, etc and am at the wall. What is the next step or steps?


After you remove the chrome collar and plastic collar washer (behind the faucet handle), pry the beauty plate off the wall. Turn off the house main water supply. Remove the four screws and washer holding the cartridge and valve stem in place. Save the metal washer under the four screws for use with the new cartridge. Replace the stem/cartridge assembly and secure with the saved metal washer and four screws. Reinstall beauty plate, collar & collar washer, then handle.

Assemble Swivel Assembly onto Kenmore Canister vac


Got this post off this web site...I just replaced my swivel and it worked:
http://www.managemyhome.com/mmh/answers/Answers.action#l4q110567
To install a new swivel assembly, you will need 2 small, flat tip screw drivers. Unplug the vacuum. Push the screw drivers in between the hose and the collar where you see the seams in the plastic collar on the end where the hose enters the collar. This will release tabs that hold the collar to the swivel. Pry and pull the collar back over the hose and then pull the small screwdrivers out of the collar. Slide the collar back along the hose. Unplug the wiring connections from the hose. Pull the hose wires up and out of the holder on the swivel assembly. Lift the tabs on the side of the hose and pull it off of the swivel. Push the new swivel onto the hose. Align the hose wires and secure them in the holder. Plug the wires from the swivel into the hose wires (blue to blue, white to white). Secure the swivel wires into the wire holder on the swivel assembly. Push the collar back up the hose and onto the swivel with the plastic seams aligned with the tabs on each side of the hose. Snap the collar securely into place.

94 jeep cherokee manual clutch fluid tube


easist fix is to visit a car junkyard and find a 94 jeep cherokee (or close to same year). remove the tube and pay the junkyard dog on the way out. Chances are the tube in the junkyard may also be developing a hole, so carefully inspect it before settling. Many tubes on cars today are metal that are covered in plastic. To remove it, keep in mind that it was installed at the factory, so removal is just the reversal. Look for a swivel connector at one end of tube (or both ends). This swivel connector is identified by a hexagonal "nut" and a "break" immediately next to it. This is actually a compression fitting that when tightened, forces two metal surfaces against each other that are tapered inside (look for this taper once removed). Now using an open-ended wrench, turn the nut loose while holding back rotation on the tube.
