How high above the dining room table should I hang my electric chandelier?

The height you hang your chandelier above your kitchen tabledepends on the wattage of the light bulbs and the of the chandelier. If you are using lower wattage light bulbs,you should hang the fixture about 2.5 feet above the center of your dining roomtable. If you are using higher wattagebulbs, I suggest hanging it 3 feet about the table so it is not too bright.

How to open genie 1/2 hp garage opener for light bulb

Set a step ladder under the power head of the garage door opener so you can reach the power cord and the lens cover safely.
Climb the ladder and pull the power cord from the outlet in the ceiling. Press the two lens tabs in to disengage the lens from the power head. The lens tabs are below the opener rail on the upper corners of the lens. Pull the lens cover straight off of the power head.
Unscrew the light bulb from the light socket. Use a new 60 watt bulb to replace the defective bulb. Do not use a short neck bulb. Screw the new bulb into the light socket just as you would a regular lamp socket.
Slide the lens cover back over the front of the power head. Push the lens cover in until the locking tabs engage the top corners of the lens cover.
Plug the Genie garage door opener power cord back into the ceiling electrical outlet.

How do you replace drive indecator light

1. Lift the little carpet in the console rear to the automatic gear shift. Pry with a small flat screwdriver will do the job.2. Remove the three Philips head screws.3. Remove one Philips head screws on each side of the rear console, they are located at the bottom front of the rear console panel. You may have to move the driver and passenger seat back to see the screws.4. Grab the back of the rear console and gently wiggle, pull backward and lift upward. Pull the hand brake so it is easier to remove the loosened rear console panel. 5. Use a flat head screwdriver to pry the rectangular 'cushion' around the automatic gear shift. Gently pry at various spot and the rectangular 'cushion' will come off easily.6. Now you are just one more plastic cover away from the burned bulb. The plastic cover that has those 'P'ark, 'R'everse, 'D'rive letters is held in place by four snap on latches. Use a small flat head screwdriver and gently push the black latches inward in a downward motion, once the screwdriver head gets inside the grey latch holder it will free the black latch. Work on each of the four latches in turn.7. Wiggle the plastic cover until it is completely loosened from the four latches. Gently lift the plastic cover up. The automatic gear shift will stop the plastic from being lifted out completely. You still have enough room to work with. You will see the little burned bulb directly below those 'P'ark, 'R'everse, 'D'rive letters. Gently pull the bulb out. I got my replacement bulb at Canadian Tire, Motomaster instrument replacement bulb 194LL (clear, long lasting, 2 bulbs for $2.99Cdn). It is a push-on bulb.8. Test the bulb by starting your car and dash lights.9. Snap back the plastic 'P'ark, 'D'rive cover. Put back the rear console panel and finally the rectangular 'cushion' around the automatic gear shift.

Cant remember how to start my g100 wacker. Can pull the starter cord but forget where the little knobs need to be turned to

I am not familiar with your model but general rules are as follows. 1 - make sure that the gas'oil mixture is the right ratio and that the fuel is not stale. 2 - Depress the little rubber primer bulb 4-6 times, or until yor see little bubbles through the bulb. 3 - Rotate the choke lever to Full and pull the starter cord until the engine tries to start. 4 - Rotate the chole lever to Half and pull the starter cord until the engine starts.5 - After the engine warms up, rotate the choke lever to Run or Open so that the engine runs smoothly.

How to replace the headlight bulb

1) Open Hood
2) Behind headlight ***'y, there is a large, round rubber gasket surrounding the light bulb. The bulb extends thru the gasket with a connector pressed onto its terminals. Carefully pry off the connector with a thin blade screwdriver, or simply rock it left and right while pulling toward firewall. NOTE: If it is the driver side, the battery will be somewhat in the way. I recommend removing its clamp (straddling bracket held by two rods and two 10mm nuts). Put the nuts and rods aside, then lift and slide the battery toward the engine as far as it will go. For additional lamp installation room, prop a ~ one inch object under the right side of the battery (a screwdriver handle will work).
3) Pull the tab at the bottom of this gasket until it starts to come loose from the headlight assembly. Remove it and put it aside.
4) Note how the bulb is installed. Then remove it by unhooking the non pivoting side of the clamp, then swing it away from the bulb.
5) Remove and replace the bulb (large tab up, and middle electrical terminal up).
6) Re-hook the wire clamp.
7) Reinstall the rubber gasket, with word 'top' at the top.
8) Press on the electrical socket. Note that all three wires are secure and not abraided.
9) To test, turn ignition key to 'on', then the lightswitch 'on'. Check both high and low beams for alignment (approx. same hight beam). If one is off significantly, make sure bulb is inserted in its cavity properly.
10) If the driver side, put the battery back in place and secure its clamp.


I changed the driver side head light/day lamp on my 2007 aveo sedan. I only had two tools, my needle nose pliers and my eyeglasses screwdriver.

1) do not mess with the battery...instead there should be three bolts two on top and one by the grill that are really easy to remove.

2) this does take a little bit of work, pull the headlight from the car and disconnect the side power cord, there is a tab at the bottom just press and it should come right off.

3) pull back the rubber gasket, this should reveal the internal wire clap that holds the light bulb in place.

4) release the wire clamp, it should just pop off when you press it in and it probably would be easier to press in both sides and once. (I only did one side and had to fight with the lamp to let loose)

5) now that the lamp is out of the headlight, put the headlight off to the side and work off the plug off the back, and pull off the rubber gasket once the lamp is free of the plug.

6) place the new light bulb with the middle tab facing up into the headlight, and secure the wire clamps. (this took less than a minute, just follow the position of the tabs)

7) put the rubber gasket on to the head lamp and make sure top is facing up, then replace all the plugs and wiring back onto the headlamp.

8) ok this is a little tricky, work the headlight back into the car body and makesure all of the bolt holes line up.

9) test the lights, they should now work.

10) replace and tighten the bolts.

Just a note as well, when I purchased this car new, i received the book, but it got lost in one of my moves, pulling out the headlight assembly is a bit of a pain as it putting it back in, but there should not be a need to remove the wire clamp it does come off pretty easily once exposed. Oh and thanks for putting up this answer.

I need to replace bulbs in my 1995 Vanden Plas, Can anyone send me the removal instructions for the instrument cluster?? It would be muich appreciated

1. Locate the bolts holding the bumper cover in place. Use a socket wrench to remove the bolts, allowing you to pull the cover down. Then take off the bolts securing the headlight assembly and pull out the entire assembly from the car.
2. Squeeze the retaining clip on the washer hose with a pair of pliers and pull it back, then pull the hose off. Next, unplug the electrical connector.
3.Unbolt the headlight washer motor with your socket wrench to gain access to the bulb. Pull the bulb straight out and take it to a Jaguar dealer or the local auto-parts shop to purchase a replacement bulb.
4.Reassemble the light assembly in the reverse order. Plug in the new bulb, re-bolt the washer motor, plug in the electrical cord and reattach the hose and retaining clip. Finally, re-bolt the headlight assembly and the bumper cover.
5.Turn the car on and switch the lights on to test the newly installed bulb.

How do you change headlight bulb in a 1998 suzuki x90?

Behind the headlight assembly is a large weather boot. Grasp the small portion that the wires come into and pull it straight out to remove the wiring harness. Grasp the large weather boot from the bottom and pull it up. Work your way around the rim and remove it. Yank it off the headlight bulb.

You should then see the headlight bulb and a large wire holding it in place. At the bottom of the assembly is a clasp that holds the wire in place. Work the wire out of the clasp and pull it all the way up.
The headlight should now be free and able to be removed. Remove it and replace it with a new one. Align the three tabs of the bulb accordingly; you'll see two of the slots for these tabs at the bottom, the third is at the top. Make sure that the bulb is inserted completely underneath the wire hold-down. This hold-down is required to keep the bulb from moving around. Ensure that you do not touch the bulb with your bare fingers.

With the bulb inserted, push the wire hold-down down into place and lock it into the clasp. Push the large weather boot back on, taking note of the "TOP" label. Push the center portion of this boot around the back of the headlight bulb.
Reinstall the wiring harness and test the light.
