Question about Magellan SporTrak Pro GPS Receiver

1 Answer

The retaining screw of the battery compartment is defective.

It feels like the above retaining screw was driven too tightly and causes the nut to spin in the socket. It sounds like the ribbing in the nut has worn out the receiving socket. It is my son's GPS receiver which he used when he was deployed in Iraq. Where can this be repaired?

    I tried to unlock the battery compartment, but unfortunately, the screw comes out without opening the compartment. I need to know how can I reach it as it will be very difficult to send it from Egypt to the US to get it fixed .
    Kindly reach me on: alouis_99@yahoo.com if you have any solutions.

How to disassemble a yaesu ft 250 radio


Ok, but be careful! You may have unscrewed a battery contact already. Remove: antenna, knobs, rubber gasket under knobs, two screws at bottom of battery compartment. Back to top of radio, there are two brass retaining "nuts" with 2 small slots. One on the On/Off and 1 on the channel control. They must be unscrewed. I use an extremely small flathead screwdriver and insert it into one slot and turn counter clockwise. There is a tool and I modified a slip ring pliers for it, but the small screwdriver works 90% of the time. In the field, I use the screwdriver. Slide the housing up off the board. Now, unscrew all the small screws holding the board to the aluminum back. Count them, keep them safe and be certain to reinstall all of them. Now you will see the negative battery contact that may be the problem (loose) and the positive contacts stays put. Put the radio board back into the housing, push it up and I put the battery screws in loosely, then I install the brass nuts and "snug" them. This assures alignment of all the parts. (battery, speaker, antenna, PTT, etc) Let me know if you need more info. patience is key in removing the nuts and reinstall them to "snug", not too tight. Best of luck!

Replacing the heater core i need to see where the screws are in the black box


Check this procedure for 1993 Ford Taurus 3.0L FI 6cyl REMOVAL & INSTALLATION
(see Figures 1 and 2)

Be sure to consult the laws in your area before beginning any procedure which requires servicing the air conditioning system. In some states, it is illegal to perform repairs involving refrigerant unless the work is done by a certified technician.

CAUTION When draining the coolant, keep in mind that cats and dogs are attracted by the ethylene glycol antifreeze, and are quite likely to drink any that is left in an uncovered container or in puddles on the ground. This will prove fatal in sufficient quantity. Always drain the coolant into a sealable container. Coolant should be reused unless it is contaminated or several years old.
When removing the instrument panel, it may be beneficial to have a friend or assistant help you.

How hard to replace starter on 3.4 liter 1997 chevy lumina sedan?


Here are the instructions on how to replace your starter.

WARNING Remember that the positive battery cable to the starter motor is electrically "hot" all the time. You must open the circuit by disconnecting the negative battery cable before servicing the starter motor.
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Raise and safely support the vehicle.
  3. Remove the front lower air deflector panel by locating the deflector retainers. These are push-in retainers and should be carefully pried loose. Remove the ambient temperature sensor, if equipped.
  4. Remove the two torque converter covers. They are retained by small screws.
  5. Remove the starter solenoid "BAT" terminal nut (the large one) and disconnect the battery positive cable from the starter motor. Remove the S terminal nut and disconnect the solenoid wire.
  6. Remove the starter motor mounting bolts. Use care. The starter is relatively heavy. Do not allow it to fall. Take note of any thin metal shims between the starter and engine block. They may be required at installation.
To install:
  1. Verify the correct starter motor has been obtained. Position the starter motor, including any shims found at removal, to the engine block and install the mounting bolts finger-tight until seated. Torque the bolts to 32 ft. lbs. (43 Nm).
  2. Position the wires to the starter. Install the nuts finger-tight, then tighten the starter solenoid "BAT" (heavy cable) nut to 84 inch lbs. Tighten the starter solenoid S terminal nut to just 20 inch lbs. (2.5 Nm).
  3. Install the torque converter covers and tighten the torque converter cover screws to 89 inch lbs. (10 Nm).
  4. Install the front lower air deflector panel by pressing in the plastic retainers.
  5. Lower the vehicle.
  6. Connect the battery negative cable. Start the engine to verify correct operation.
