What are the effective shin splints stretches?

Here are some of the effective shin splints stretches:
1) In a kneeling position, point your toes out behind and gently sit back on your heels pressing the tops of the feet towards the ground.
2) Standing arm length from a wall, put your hands on the wall while keeping your feet and knees straight, then lean forward as far as possible.
3) Standing with your feet flat, bend your knees forward as far as possible keeping your heels on the floor.
4) Put feet flat on the ground and have a partner hold them down. Partner applies resistance to your toes and you lift them up against the pressure.
5) Sitting with your left ankle on right knee, apply pressure to inside of your foot (near big toe) with hand, then and turn your foot up and in, using the leg muscles.
6) In the same position as above, put pressure to the outside of the foot (near little toe) with your hand, and turn foot down and out using the leg muscles.
7) In the same position as above, put pressure to the top of foot (near toes) with your hand, and lift the foot using leg muscles. Repeat these with the right ankle on the left knee.
8) Sit on a table or chair attach a weight (a bucket filled with stones or sand works well) around the foot. Without bending your knee move your foot up and down from the ankle - Start light and work up.
9) Attach one end of a stretching exercise elastic band to the leg of a table or sofa and loop it around the end of the foot. Move your foot up and down and side to side against the bands resistance. Try to draw the letters of the alphabet in the air with your big toe.
10) Stand erect and raise up and down onto your toes several times. You can make it harder by doing it while standing on a step and allowing your calves to stretch over the edge of the step.
11) While sitting lower and raise your feet with the heels on the ground as high and quickly as possible for 60 seconds. This is a great one to do during work days while sitting at your desk.

2003 TL. How do I remove the oil pan?

Not too hard if it is a southern car, if it's from the north, a bit more effort might be needed because the nuts on the exhaust rust. If you are working on the ground, get it up high on ramps or jack stands. Always put another support under the car. Leave the floor jack in place and use jack stands, slide something, like the front tires, under the car, too. NEVER work under a car without a backup support. Cars can, and do, fall off jack stands.
1st you have to remove the exhaust "A" pipe. 3 nuts, 14mm on each exhaust manifold need to come off. ALWAYS spray a penetrating lube, like WD40, on any exhaust nuts before loosening, and before installing them. You need a really good socket, extension and a breaker bar, make sure the socket is on the nuts correctly, break them loose without rounding them off. Then two 12mm nuts on the support bracket, and 3 14mm nuts at the outlet of the "A" pipe at the converter. If these last 3 are too rusty, you can unhook the exhaust hangers and move the assembly over. (Leave the back muffler hangers on.) Drain the oil. (I always try and do these jobs when an oil change is due) two 14mm bolts going from the oil pan to the transmission, and a 10mm bolt holding an access plate at the transmission end, remove access plate. Now a bunch of 10mm bolts and nut holding the oil pan in place. You might have to pry the pan loose, a big drift works good. There are a couple of spots to hook onto and pry.

Replace Right Rear broken Taillight assembly

Just joined 20 minutes ago....maybe I can help.
My volkswagen golf rear cluster is often a bother.
1, Open boot area and remove the plastic cover.
2, Often its the 3 or 4 nuts holding the interior cluster in place, use a socket to remove them, a 8/10/12 mm nut usually .
3, Exterior shell falls away, allowing access to the bulbs.
4, reverse to re assemble.

Good luck, Dave

Wheel wobble at hi speed 55 mph

bad tire; shifted layers; check for big bubbles on the sidewalls.

I have a 1991 Mazda MPV, standard transmission, 4x4, when I drive there is a wobbling from the right front side, the faster I go the more it wobbles. Whats wrong?

Can be multiple things. I would start with the easiest first. the tire might just be out of alignment. There are wheel weights on each tire so that the rim is perfectly balanced (to prevent wobbling). Sometimes these weights fall off and this will throw the rim out of alignment. The faster you go, the worse the wobble. Get that checked first. You can also jack that tire up, grab each side of the wheel and try to wiggle it. if it wiggles, that could be a sign that you have a bad tie rod or wheel bearing is starting to go. By far the easiest thing to do though would be to make sure that the lug nuts are tightened down. Good luck.

Kenmore 90 series washer w broken belt

Hello I'm afraid you didnt find a belt but maybe a piece of the coupling. Here are detailed instructions on replacing a coupling: from the limited information this sounds like it's going to be a broken coupling. Kenmores are usually direct drive machines made by whirlpool, this means they don't have a belt. Instead the transmission is connected directly to the motor via a coupling. This is what a coupling looks like: 0c6b869.jpg To confirm this pull the machine forward enough that you can lean it back and it will stand back under it's own weight. Wedge something underneath the chasis so it does not fall on you while your accessing the bottom. Go under the Machine and locate the motor, You will see the pump connected to the motor connected to the transmission. 1. Unplug the wire harness from the motor then. 2. Use a screw driver remove the 2 clips holding the pump in place and remove or push the pump out of the way. 3. You will need to remove the 2 screws from the brackets holding the Motor in place with a nut driver. 4. With a screwdriver remove the 2 clips holding the motor in place (be carefull to support the motor as the clips comes off) 5. remove the motor and drop it onto the floor. Now you will see the side on the motor the other side on the transmission the rubber connector in between. Replace the coupling if broken or worn and reassemble the washer in reverse order. Now you should be all set. Be aware you may smell rubber on the first couple loads this is normal after replacing a coupling. Good Luck!! if you have any other questions or concerns please feel free to comment again. Mike p.s Please remember to rate my solution since this helps me to help other people :) Thanks!

Burning up the big black belt that propells vacuum.

See if you can pick up a nylock nut for the pulley. As long as your nut is a standard thread and not a reverse thread fastener.

Drawer beneath oven keeps falling off it's little wheels

I sympathise with your problem and sorry about your broken toe.. The drawer sits in a slide and the rollers on the drawer travel inside the track.. If your husband is reasonable handy ( or you ) ..empty the drawer and try to get the wheels into the track on the oven.. this process is similar to that used on some kuchen cabinet drawers and furniture so it is no different..just hard to see or get it started..
With the drawer out of the oven..use a flashlight and examine the track to make sure it is not damaged ( do the same thing on the mating slide/rollers of the drawer)..
If possible, can you return to the place you bought it from and have them show you how to do it? They owe you at least that much... Good luck and take care of that toe...

Broken trophy

If you can drill a small hole in the figurine and another in the base so that with a steel pin or nail shaft the two parts can stand then use some epoxy resin around the repair leave it for 24 hours and the repair should be fine.

Please rate any assistance given - I hope this is helpful.
