Stalled, leaking gas on drivers side by the rear door, i believe its a fuel pump? 2003 ford expedition. Can I replace it myself?


I replaced my filter on my 2003 also but you dont need special tools, you just squeeze the tabs on the connectors and pull them off. you might have an o ring missing on the one of the 3 hoses on the filter. The filter is under a plastic cover by the fuel tank near the driver side rear door.

Oil seal leaking on 1999 gmc half ton 4w/d on front of transfere case do i need special tools or can I drop drive line and replace seal


billbohman: Unless GMC has had some change I am not aware of and that has not been published in service manuals for the repair of these units, the procedures are the same as any seal replacement and require no special tool. There are some universal seal installation tools which I would venture the majority of techs don't have because they substitute other tools in their place most of the time. Most techs will have a special tool designed from removing seals. However, the seal can be removed without it.
Just use a little common sense when removing a seal. Don't damage the casing.
Good Luck.

I have a LG front loader washer model wm-2032hw. The seal around the door is ripped on the bottom and is leaking on the floor. Would I be able to replace the seal myself? How difficult would it be?


You need to remove the spring loaded wire from around both sides of the seal. The back one is accessable after you remove the front side of the seal. LG does make a special plier (actually, one plier for the front, a different one for the rear) to spread the spring apart to aid in removal and reinstallation, but you can do it without the special toolls with a little effort. On a scale of 1 - 10, I would rate it a 3. Go for it !

Drum bearings


Removal of the front seal (just the side right next to the door needs to be removed) is a spring loaded wire. There is a special tool for it, but it can be done without the special tool. Other than that, mostly phillips head screws and a few metric bolts. The suspension shock absorbers have a tab you need to depress to push them out.

Driver's side window regulator


I just replaced the regulator in my mother's 98 civic ex and didnt need any special tools. I do recommend replacing the glass run channels on either side of the window. I have replaced the regulator twice and it is still having problems as I haven't replaced the run channels. If not replaced very soon I can see myself replacing the regulator...yet again!

LG WD-1021-WF Front Loader Washing Mashing


Not a hard task if you coat rims with liquid detergent before trying to install new seal.
Using thumb go slowly around rim working seal all the way back.
Replacing main spring can be done by working bottom to top and then hold left side of spring in place while you pull right side in with long nose pliers.A couple of minutes difficult work and your 90% done.
Care is required so as not to puncture seal,
Main point is to ensure seal is fully seated before applying spring.
Having machine laid on its back makes the job so much easier.

This job took an hour and 30 minutes, the hour spent checking the internet first.
Good luck
