Clutch on my sportster grabbing right off handgrip hard to shift pulled clutch cover n little spring over adjusting nut broke could that be the prob

The spring probably just popped off. It just sticks on to the adjustment lock. You may need to tighten the adjustment screw on the clutch. This is done by removing the lock which is behind the spring and turning the screw counter clockwise until resistance is felt, then put the lock back on. Do not tighten it past this point or the clutch may slip. You should have a small amount of play in the cable. Adjust this with the cable adjuster.

Ford Expedition Eddie Bauer 1998 hood latch spring replacement

Ford Expedition 1998 hood latch spring replacement. If your hood won't latch on the secondary latch, but does on the first, and when you pull the hood handle from the drivers dash, from here you should feel a pull when opening the hood. It should feel like you are opening the hood. However, the secondary latch is not latching. You may have a spring broken in the latch lock.

I had this problem. Mind you, I am 115lb, 40 year old lady. I was told to leave it alone, bring it to someone who knows what they are doing or I would have to tie it up with was up for the challenge.

Open the hood, disconnect the battery, find your latch. It is in the middle of the truck, by the grill in the front -under the hood. You may have to remove the plastic covering that shields the radiator. There should be 6 plastic screw caps found right where you can see them, and 2 plastic pop off caps closer to the engine. I had to step on the bumper to see them. Next, with a marker, mark the location of the lock. I put a line across the top onto the truck, and on the sides of the lock. This is so when I put it back I don't have to do any adjustments. Don't forget to mark the placement of the screws on the lock. With an 8mm socket, place the socket on the two bolts holding the lock in place. I didn't need to take anything apart to get to the lock, just a little pull on the plastic you should see in front of the lock. However, I would suggest you taking the sensor cable off of the latch. I didn't need to remove mine. I was very careful in handling the cable and the lock. Please remember to keep the screws and bolts (if any) to the side, you will need to put them back on. Once you have the lock out of it's place, carefully bring it out about 4-6 inches (it should almost lie on the metal for you to see inside). Here you should see if you have a broken spring. The lock should only have two. One spring is about 2.5 inches, and the lower one is about 1.5 inches. My problem what the 1.5 inch spring. I took out the broken spring, and using a flat head screw driver, I latch the spring on. I then had my daughter pull the hood handle, shabang! It worked. I reversed my steps in putting the latch, bolts, screws, and battery back together. I didn't need to adjust any of it since I marked the placements. It has been working great ever since.

It does have a spring that you may have simply lost. It is called a Grinding Setting Pin #HGP120. If you do not replace the spring you will lose your grind setting each time. I can send you a replacement spring via USPS for $2.50 +$4.95 Postage

You can use the tool you will need to some how lock the telescopic steering just enough to be able to use the tool. It will be a little hard but that is about the only way to do it. Take you time and breathe.

Tub seal repair

If you are talking about the front door boot seal it is not a fun thing to do but to replace the boot you have to remove the front cover by using a putty knife on each side once you have removed the pretty cover you need to remove the front door and the door boot from the door then the front panel 5/16" screws usually the cover usually wont come off all the way so you have to work around it it will come off but you have to finagle around under the top cover to get the screws.once you doo all this you have to pull the old boot from the tub. now going back with it is the fun part the boot locks on to the tub with a locking lip and if it dont lock it will come off while putting spring back on.Once you have the boot locked with the lips you have to put the wire spring into a groove and then put on the spring you you are able to get this far you are doing fine.after putting spring on pull alittle on the boot to make sure it is secure.If it is put front panel back on ,secure boot on the lip to the door and put on pretty cover then leak check.BUT GET READY TO SAY SOME UN GODLY WORD THIS IS NOT A EASY TASK AND IF YOU HAVE NEVER DONE THIS BEFORE PLAN ON A DARN NEAR WHOLE DAY JOB GOOD LUCK and let me know how it goes

You have to get the tension off of the hinge and it will drop right in. The spring loaded arm on the door needs to be drawn back until you can (depending on the style) either lock the u-arm into the notch on the other side of the hinge, or put a small bolt through the aligning holes in the side of the hinge. Once you get the arm straightened out a bit and relieve the spring pressure, you should be able to sit it right in there. Be careful though, that spring is strong
