How to remove plastic front wheel drive cover on Toro Recycler

The cover looks like it should just snap loose, maybe with a screwdriver, but I don't want to break anything. I was mowing when the self-propulsion feature suddenly quit woking. The drive belt does not appear to be broken, but is loose and the drive mechanism will not engage. Suggestions will be appreciated.

Thanks,

Jim

    I have a 2008 Toro 22 in recycler and the self propel quit working and the rear wheels will not turn backwards. I tried tightening the cable as described in the manual, but that did not help. I am curious about how to remove the cover for the drive belt.

    Thanks for your comments. The first thing I checked was to see if the drive shaft was clean, and it was much cleaner than I expected.Is the screw on the top of the deck or below the deck? I have not found it yet. Update: I think I just found it below the deck near the front.- Thanks again for your help.

On my Toro recycler, I also had the front drive stop working -- and fixed it after reading the solutions here.

First, the plastic cover on the top deck that goes over the front drive mechanism must be loosened enough to pull it up. Before you can do that, on the underside there is one screw to take out.

Once that's done, all you have to do is pry the plastic cover up enough to see the belt and pulley that make up the front drive assembly. On mine, the belt had simply come off the pulley. Putting the belt back on, then tightening things back up is all it took to put the Toro back in sel-propelled happiness. Good luck!

I just found them. One at the left corner of the cover (standing facing the front of the mower) the other to the left of the opening where the cable enters the cover. You access them both from under the mower.

There were TWO bolts/screws (10 mm; I used a 3" socket to remove); located underneath; one is near the front wheel, the other covered up with dried grass near the blade housing.

How do you change the air filter?


The air filter cover is the big plastic square box conected to a huge hose that goes to the intake. To remove the cover, snap out the steel clips with your fingrs or a screwdriver ( I think they are just 2 in the Caravan), and loose (but keep it on) the clamp around the big hose I mentioned. It might take some jerking because it gets stuck sometimes. There's an air flow sensor conected to the hose itself, so, if it's in the way or you risk breaking it, just unplug it. All the Dodge electrical connectors have a red safety pin that you need to slide first. Once you remove the filter cover, take the filter out and clean everything (like leaves) off the filter casing. Install the new filter (it goes just in one position), and reinstall the cover, hose and connector. Snap the clips back and don't forget to tighten the clamp. Make sure you don't force the cover to close if it does not look right, some cars use two slots that need to be put back first, and then the clips.

How do U remove the Interior light covers on a 2002 Dodge Intrepid. tried using a screwdriver and pushing left and it did not work


If you're talking about the map lights (2 lights in between driver and passenger)

If you have just the map lights, just pull the whole assembly out. Don't worry about anything breaking, just pull it down, just not at an angle or anything. It easily snaps back into place after. Bulbs can be removed once you have it out.

If you have an overhead console, you remove a screw towards the front of the overhead console Then just pull. If you're talking about other interior lights, let me know I'll let you know how to remove it.

My lawnmover still cuts OK, but the propulsion doesn't work - it suddenly stopped mid-mow. I can't see anything immediately wrong with the mechanism underneath. Many thanks


plugged up jet in the carburetor does this. Starts when cold and eventually dies out
Have the jets cleaned and the float checked as well

My toilet is moving-how do I get the covers off the floor bolts


The covers are 99% of the time plastic, and if broken will cost around $3 to replace if you break them.
The caps are a two part systema base that goes below the nut and the top dome that covers the assembly. See here: http://www.plumbingsupply.com/images/toilet_bolt_caps_green.gif (ignore the special color)
These two pieces snap together and with a slotted/flathead screwdriver should just pop off with a little bit of convincing. If they are too loose that the screwdriver will not work a claw hammer can also pop them off. If all else fail, break them. They serve completely aesthetic and no actual function beyond, however they are easier to clean and may assist in the reduction of bacteria growth.

How do you replace a drive cable on a toro recycler 6.5 hp.


Its a bit of a pain - but with ordinary tools, it can be done. Get the replacement cable first. You can see how the bottom spring wraps around the cable with a universal joint sort of arrangement. Remove the belt protector (three screws from the top deck; if you have a battery compartment, that will temporarily need to go. Release the old cable from the top and middle attachment points, then unhook the spring from the traction lever. You might need to destroy the old cable lock to the mower deck to remove the old cable. Remove the plastic cup next to the cable where it exits the mower deck. Replace parts in this order: New spring/cable to the traction lever, snap in plastic interface to mower deck, small plastic cup top cable attachment, then middle attachment. You might need to move the middle attachment after you give it a test run. Replace belt cover and battery compartment if necessary. A lot of steps but, except for a difficult fit to get the spring hooked up, nothing is really difficult. I paid about $30 for the replacement cable from a local dealer; Overpriced, but I wanted to get the job done today.
