You can use a good old metal screw for this. If the back of the screw hole is open, just get a coarse threaded metal screw that is approximately the fight diameter and use it. Or, if you want to be precise (and far more safe), take the screw you do have to a hardware store, or a fastener supplier, and have them set you up with the correct screw. i do not know where you live, but if you Google map "hardware store" you should be able to find one pretty close by.

I have a franklin towel bar and the mounting bracket broke at the screw hole. is there replacement mounting brackets avaible?


Probably not, but if they sell a toilet paper holder of the same style the bracket might be identical to the towel holder, but would be cheaper than buying a new towel bar. Good luck, Al K

The left bracket/brace is off the wall. There is one long screw in the back center. How is this put back together?


There should be a small screw in each of the arms that secure the towel bar to the wall mounts. You will need to loosen each of these to remove the towel bar from the wall and to release the mounting bracket which has pulled free. To repair you need to puchase a larger size moly plug, toggle mount or other suitable hardware to secure the mounting bracket to the sheetrock wall (should not have pulled free is screwed in to the stud). Once you secure the mounting bracket then you are able to re-install the towel bar by placing the arms over the mounting brackets and tightening the small screws on each arm of the towel bar.

Here are a couple of videos which should help you undesrtand how towel bars are installed. Hope this is helpful. (do not delete) utube.png Here is a couple of videos that should help understand how towel bars

Interior door handle is broken in saab 93s how do you fix problem


I'VE GOT A SIMPLE SOLUTION TO THIS PROBLEM!
August 16, 2012

My Mother-in-law has a 2004 Saab 9-3 convertible, she wasn't able to find a fix for this problem because the plastic bracket that holds the door cable in place on the inside of the door panel broke off and it's actually part of the door panel itself. Since the bracket broke, pulling on the inside door handle would no longer pull the cable that's need to open the door.
She was out of luck and had to roll the window down to use the outside door handle to exit the car (that gets annoying really fast).
Basically without rigging it, she would've needed a replacement door panel because of this ridiculos design flaw (around $600 + installation if you could even find the panel, she couldn't because Government Motors SUCKS!) .

I simply used an L bracket that I had (can find it at any Home Depot, Lowe's etc.) and used two sets of channel lock pliers to bend it into a "squared" J shape. I then drilled 2 holes into the inside metal door frame and used 2 sheet metal screws to secure the bracket to the door frame. To make sure that I mounted the new and improved bracket that I created in the proper location (not too much or too little slack). I simply made a template with a sheet of paper by tracing where the old molded plastic bracket was in relation to the two screw holes of the door panel ( actually had to mount the bracket about an inch forward to make up the difference since the bracket is no longer attached to the door panel).
I also had to drill the **** in the bracket a bit to make sure the cable wouldn't get hung up on it when pulled, but in all it only took 15 mintues to redesign GM's crappy design.
Here are 2 pictures, hope this will solve your issue with your broken handle.

Hello! Here is what I was able to track down:

1. Disconnect car battery.

2. Remove Knob. Remove four Phillips head screws that hold escutcheon plate down to console.
NOTE: SHORT SCREW IS USED IN REAR RIGHT - HAND HOLE. Remove escutcheon plate and console from floor tunnel.

3. Lift selector indicator lamp housing out of shifter and pull bulb socket out of lamp housing. Disconnect wire connectors from combination Back - up light / Neutral safety switch.

4. Remove two 1/4 - 20 x 1/2 hex-head cap screws that fasten Dual / Gate shifter to rear mounting bracket. Remove 1/4 - 20 x 1/2 hex - head cap screw that holds cable bracket to shifter frame. Remove two #10 - 32 x 3/8 slotted head cap screws that fasten Dual / Gate shifter to front bracket. Free shifter from cable by removing cotter pin and washer.

6. Install replacement shifter unit in reverse order of removal of original unit.

7. ADJUST CABLE: SEE FIGURE 1 (Below)
Loosen nut that fastens cable pin to transmission control arm. Loosen nut enough to allow pin to slide in the slot in the arm. Turn the arm to NEUTRAL position. Move the stick to NEUTRAL. Tighten the adjusting nut. Test movement of stick and check to be sure that stick positions agree with transmission control operation.

8. SEE FIGURE 2 (Below)
Connect car battery. Apply hand brake. Move stick to NEUTR AL position. Press foot on brake pedal. Start engine. If starter fails to operate, Neutral Safety switch must be adjusted. Adjustment is made with a long-bladed Phillips screwdriver through the "Street" gate. This screw is directly in front of the st ick. Turn the screw about 1/2 turn past the point where starter operates. (STICK MUST REMAIN IN "NEUTRAL" WHILE ADJUSTMENT IS MADE). Starter should operate ONLY when stick is in PARK or NEUTRAL position.

The housing of my brakes on the handle bars is loose and keeps moving. how do i tighten it so that it stops moving when i apply pressure on it and/or squeeze the brake lever??


If the screw is all the way tight and still slipping ... try to find a fatter part of the handle bar to mount the grip to. You will probably will not find any such that is convenient for you to continue to use the brake ... remove the grip, wrap some electrical tape around the handle bar, reattach the grip. Tighten it and give it a try.

I hope this works for you

The towel bar just fell apart. The wall mounts remain in tact as well as the mounting hardware on 1 side (the piece that the bars (this towel rack has 2 bars) slide into. I can't figure out what holds...


The part that holds the bar up should either have a screw in the bottom to tighten up against the wall bracket or a hole to access a scew and turn the screw out to tighten to the wall bracket

You can usually find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here.

Normally you have to separate the door panels (as shown in the attached photo) and then you'll see the previously hidden screws you need to remove.

Or you can watch a YouTube video (not a video I made) that demonstrates how it's done.

Shifter sloppy, having trouble getting it into gear.


There is a bracket with two torx screws that gets loose. You need to tighten that. You will need to remove the plastic and metal shield under the dash, above the brake pedal to see the bracket. Look up above the brake pedal and wiggle the the shift lever and you will see what needs tightened. Worked for me.
