Tilt lever on steering column is not staying in place, so the steering wheel slowly move up to block my view. I know its a simple fix, but I need some kind of direction on how to remove it probably

I don' t think so.
Not a simple fix.
The tilt lever is down underneath the horn button, which is part of the air bag system which is on top of the steering wheel, which is on top of the tilt lever.
All this is a big job to deal with.
If this were my car, I think I would figure out a way to lock that lever into the locked position.
That would likely take some creativity.
Do you know someone creative?
Fixing it will likely require removing the steering wheel.
God bless your efforts.

I have a Toyota Revo GLX, model 2001 with powered side mirror. From stored position (folded on the side of the window) to open position ( when you are going to use the side mirror), there is a clicking and...

Hi MVN, Seems that the washer is from the securing hollow mount. There should be a nut somewhere inside too. The mirror is electrically operated not hydrolic. The mirror will probably break if you try to remove it from the housing, but as to save it you will have to do so anyway, you may as well try. If you are successful, you can reattach it using double sided mirror tape, but make sure it is a good quality tape. Adjust it to the maximum and insert a flat blade between it and the mounting and try un-clipping it. If it does not break you should be able to replace and lock the housing back in place, but it will be difficult. To replace the mirror you will need to remove the door panel and the small cover on the inside of the door adjacent to the mirror mount. It clips into place and is gently levered off. Inside are three screws holding the assembly in place. Disconnect the electrics inside the door panel and then remove the screws. Fit back the replacement and reassemble. Regards John

Remove rear view mirror on 1999 mercedes clk

I fixed a broken one up before on a 97' c230. It is two piece with some circuitry in the middle. It is odd that it would leak fluid as there is no fluid inside of it. Is it possible somthing spilled on it?

To take it apart, look around the whole thing for any screws, precationary. I don't recall any on mine. Then gently start prying at diffrents points of the mirror with a small screw driver. The outside part, where the two pieces of plastic join together.

Once the plastic cover is removed, there is a metal ring holding the rest of the assembly to the windshield attachment rod. Gently pry off the ring, noting the position of the ring, for reassembly. There are some internal clips that hold mirror in place. On the car I was working on the attachment places for the clips, had broken off. The fix was for that was two part epoxy. I glued the mirror to the support bracket, reattached the plastic cover and it is as good as new.

Just be carfull of the circuitry in the mirror. To be extra precautious, pulling a fuse or disconecting the negitive battery terminal would prevent any inadvertant eletrical damage. I didn't do any of that. Although, I was comfortable with what I was doing. As far as the circuitry in it, there is a circuit board and a light inside, with a wiring harness. As far as I can tell it has something to do with the anti-theft system. Because when the car is locked, a red light flashes on the bottom.

This info is on the 97, c230 model. I am sure there could be variences in the diffrent years and models. However, the principle for taking them apart is probably similar. The job can take quite some time if it is the first time someone has fixed/replaced one. Due to so many pieces inside the unit, and they have to all be in the right position to put the housing on.

Good luck. I recommend taking it apart if you want, and cleaning the inside before replacing. Also, look around to see if the leak could be coming from somewhere else and dripping off the mirror. Let us know what you find.

I just bought a top-end MacBook Air 13.3" 4 GB/256 GB for presentations. I also have a Dell M410HD projector, also quite new (a few months old), which works great with the two PCs (one new, one old)...

They (Apple) might be right. It could be that the projector is damaged, like the bulb, or it could be incompatible with your computer, but I don't think that is the case. Try taking the projector to a computer repair place.

Rearview mirror fell off windshield! Not broken...

the mirror should simply slide over the metal mount (button) that is glued to the window.

loosen the set screw on the mirror mount...

hold the rear view mirror mount on the glass just above the metal mount (wide end of plastic opening facing down)

slide it into place...
secure it by tightening down set screw you loosened earlier.

My right side mirror of my 2004 nissan sentre is hanging off how can I fix it my self

If only the glass is affected, it can be replaced by slipping a new mirror element into place and locking it. Some mirrors press in, others are locked with a screwdriver turning a little gear through a slot under the mirror. If the mirror plastic body is broken, you can also replace that with a used assembly from Ebay or a junkyard. Replacement requires removal of the door panel, which is more difficult than replacing the mirror. Be sure you have re-connected all the wiring harnesses and checked the mirror operation if it is electrically adjusted before replacing the door panel. Replacement assemblies range from $20-$70 on Ebay. Glass only is much less.
