Question about KitchenAid 24 in. KUDI01IL - Multiple Color Free-Standing Dishwasher

1 Answer

Whats the secret to getting the chopper unit back into the unit. There Tip was to use a small wrench or pair of pliers to compress the spring and align the unit. However , even with it fully compressed , the angle is right and it dosen't want to line up . I know to get it off, they advised to pull up. So it must be the opposite to replace it. I've been trying!!

Do i need a chevy brake tool to change drum brakes

There is no special tool for chevies, at least that I know of.

Go to any parts house, NAPA, Autozone, etc.) and pick up a pair of brake spring pliers. On the "Jaws" end will be two hooks for removing and replacing the springs. On the handle ends will be a socket looking tool which you use to compress and turn the dampers. The other handle will have a flattened shape, and a lip to rehook the springs. You will need a pry of some type to remove the drum, some flat end screw drivers, a pair of slip joint pliers, a set of box/open end wrenches, and of course a hammer.
Probably going to need to have them turned, common that they have "groves" which will wear the shoes faster.

I am trying to reinstall the spring part # 503 46 59-01. Any idea how to get it back in place?

I guess we are talking about the compression spring for the chainbrake, start by securing the brake cover, this is best done by clamping two 8mm bolts thread up in a good vice, space them the same distance as the bar stud holes in the brake cover, place the cover ,spring side up onto these bolts and secure with one of the bar nuts, now the cove is secure, push the spring onto the plastic spigot on the brake mechanism, take a good pair of long nose pliers and with the jaws closed, enter them into the open end of the other end of the spring, until they the jaws lock into the end coil, you can now use them as a pushing tool to compress the spring and locate it back into its alloy housing, the fact that the pliers are inside the spring will stop it flying out as if you just try to use a screw driver. ALWAYS USE GLOVES AND EYE PROTECTION WHEN INSTALLING THIS SPRING.

Good luck, let me know how you get on.

How to change rear brakes on 2004 cavalier, How do you remove the large hold down spring

You will need a "brake parts tool" and a pair of needle nose pliers. If you look carefully at the cap of the spring. you will see that the center "button" is held in position by a metal "pin" flattened at the tip.
The button has a slot in it that is 90 degrees off from the flat tip of the metal "pin" The Tool has an end on it that allow you to compress the spring and take the tension off from the Button and pin so that the pin falls loose. With the needle nose pliers, grip the flattened tip of the pin, then push the spring/button combination in about a quarter of an inch. As soon as the pin is loose, rotate the flat piece so that it can be pushed through the slot in the button. The spring will simply fall off when you remove the tension with the brake parts tool. You can also do this with the needle nose pliers and your fingers. But it is easier to replace the parts with the brake parts tool.
Hope this helps,

Try compressing the spring with a Channel-lock type of pliers, hold it over the slot and use a small hammer to tap the spring into the slot while keeping the spring compressed. Good luck!

What tools do I need to replace the rotors on my 1995 Olds Cutlass Supreme

You will probably need some wrenches and allen wrenches to remove the brakes. A C clamp to compress the brake calipers when you go to put them back on. A pair of pliers to remove the retainer washer if there is one where the rotor fits over your wheel studs. Some vehicles require a Torx head socket to remove the bolts that hold the brake calipers or it might require a small socket if it's a regular bolt head. Probably not a bad idea to go to your local library and find a Chilton's manual for your year of vehicle. They give good instructions on how to change stuff.

What tools do i need to change the rear brake pads on a 2000 chevy silverado

If you have disc brakes then all you need is a c-clamp to compress the brake caliper. If you have drum brakes then you really need to purchase a pair of brake pliers and pair of small vise grip pliers or tool to re-install your retainer springs. It isn't very expensive for either and not hard to change your own brakes. Just do one at a time and don't take everything off of both sides in case you have to look at the other side to see how things go back together. You will have to jack up one side at a time to take the tire off.

I also can't get the chopper cover off my dishwasher.

My chopper cover was held in place by two screws, but even after removing them I found I needed to use a pair of 'channel lock' pliers to grasp the plastic cover and pull it up and off. Yours may just be stuck from a few years of use and thermal cycling.

Putting the whole thing back together was an equal joy...

Broken timing belt. how hard is it to replace?

Ok here is were you need to go - DO THIS STEP BY STEP

Replacing your timing belt is very easy IF YOU KNOW WHAT YOUR DOING. What I suggest doing is bring it to a shop. But if you follow the directions you can do it in 2 hours tops. But for a personal note. When you get to the timing belt tensioner. Unbolt the tensioner from the car (two bolts), put it in a vice and SLOWLY compress the pin in. Then take a very small allen wrench and put it in the gernade hole (you will know what i'm talking about). Then Bolt it back in to were it's really snug. Then after you have your car timed, put a pair of needle nose pliers on the allen wrench and then put a long screw driver in between the timing belt and the allen wrench and yank out the wrench really fast. YOU DO NOT WANT IT BREAKING INTO THE TENSIONER. GOOD LUCK.

If this is a rounded cover you need to use a flat blade screwdriver. Make sure the screw is out on the lt side, then insert the screwdriver on the rt side where you see the tab/slot. gently press the screwdriver to the rt to pry the cover out. The chopper will come out easily, going back in is tricky. Use a 1/2 inch open end wrench, compress the spring and insert the wrench between the blade and the screen, then put the chopper back in.
