How do I remove dorf tap handle which needs special tool or circlip pliers under the head of the tap handle? Once 2 prongs are inserted in the holes, do I just lift tap head off, or do I need to rotate pliers 1/4 turn or so and then lift? Tried both. No luck.

SOURCE: How do I remove the manual window winder handle ?

I have to do the same with my door handle on my excel. The Window winder is held on by a sort of circlip thingy and they do make a special tool to remove it, and i would reccommend buying it or even borrowing one from a local mechanic. it is possible to remove it with a screwdriver and some wire but it is very hard and fiddly as you have to do it blind.

Look at the inside of the door directly behind the door handle. There should be a hole about 15 mm wide.
Just enough to get a small socket through.
Make sure the window is up.

SOURCE: Screw holding shelf bracket broke off, leaving much of the screw

the screw is probably a 1/4" srew. go to ace hardware or similar hardware store and tell them your problem and tell them you need a srew extractor. the one you can use in a cordless drill, it will drill and get the screw out in seconds.

SOURCE: replace door handle and lock 08 dodge charger

check that all screws have been removed from door. Hidden screws often found behind reflectors in door. Use prying tool and gently pull bottom of door panel away from doorm on/in door handle and near mirrow within door jam. Lay on the ground and look between the door and panle. You can usually see the plastic clips holding the door in place. Once bottom is loose you should be able to lift the door up and off of the door. Watch for power window and lock wires when removing. If manual windows, slide a rag behind window crank and move back and forth to remoce clip which holds crank on.

I have a Honda whipper snipper that needs a bearing that attaches to the clutch /drum assembly.i removed the large circlip at the end of the clutch housing but can`t progress any further, any ideas?john

The bearing you want will be in the end of the shaft housing under the clutch drum. You will need to pull the clutch drum out of the housing so remove the head of the snipper to ensure that there are no retainers on the end of the shaft. Check if there are 2 holes in the housing under the drum . insert a punch and tap the clutch drum and drive shaft out of the bearing. If there are no holes there then there may be holes in the back of the clutch drum in which you will inset the legs of a slide hammer puller and hammer it out of the bearing

Replacing brake band on Husqvarna 357/359/340/345/350/346/445 and many others

Before attempting to repair any chain brake, eye protection should always be worn, these machines all have an out board chain brake, known as a knee link brake due to its actuating mechanism, start by makeing sure the brake is off, by pulling the brake handle fully back to the top handle, now remove the bar securing nuts, remove the brake/side cover, the hand guard stays with the saw, so the cover is quite difficult to hold when removing the spring, so take two 8 mm bolts, clamp the hex heads in a vice, spacing them out the same as the fixing holes in the brake, now fit the brake /cover band up onto the up standing bolts, use the two bar nuts to secure the brake to the bolts, now insert special tool part no. 502522202 into the actuating quadrant and turn to activate the brake ( this will remove much of the spring tention ) if you do not have the tool you can remove the hand guard from the saw and use that, or a sturdy pair of long nose pliers, now remove the cross head screws from the spring cover, edge the back of the spring up enough to insert a suitable screw driver into the end, lever the spring up and onto the screw driver shaft ( this will stop it flying out ) remove the c clip securing the actuating quadrant to the brake cover, gently lever out the roll pin in the anchor end of the band, the band will now lift out of the cover, remove the single cross head screw securing the knee link mechanism to the band. Refit the new band into the knee link and re fit the screw, re fit the quadrant onto the post in the cover and re fit the e clip, press the anchor end of the band back into the cover, insert the spring back onto the knee link spigot, compress the spring and push it back into the cover, the best way to compress the spring is to use a good pair of long nose pliers, push the closed jaws into the end of the spring ( this will stop the spring flying out ) now push the pliers in to compress the spring against the knee link, and back into the cover, refit the spring cover screws, you now need to load the brake before it can be put back onto the saw, use the special tool, or the removed hand guard to do this, it will take a fair amount of force to re load the brake, once loaded re fit to the saw.

How to change a clutch on a stihl fs108 brush cutter?

The clutch drum is held in place by a circlip on the opposite side of the clutch housing to the motor. To undo the circlip you need long, straight expanding circlip pliers that are thin enough to go down the side of the shaft drive housing (where the square end of the shaft goes in) and the clutch housing. Get the two points of the pliers into the two holes on the circlip then squeeze the pliers to expand the circlip and bring it up the clutch drum shaft until you can remove it. It can be a fiddly job so patience is needed!. Once you have the circlip off the clutch drum the drum will pull out through the motor side of the clutch housing. Replacement is the reverse process but make sure the circlip is properly seated in the groove.

Remove radio ford

They make a inexpensive radio removal tool that consists of 2 "U" shaped prong like handles that insert into the 4 "square" holes on the face of the radio edge, 2 being on the left side and 2 on the right side near the edge. Gently insert the the 2 section tools into the 4 holes as sorts 2 "handles" and gently pull the radio out of dash area. The terminals have lock tabs that you need to depress to thus remove the speaker and power terminal connections. Auto Zone, Advance Auto, O' Reilly's and NAPA usually have the fairly cheep little tools, that look almost as though they were made from "coat hanger" wire rod.

I read on a website how to remove the casing from the back to access the light bulb on my Daewoo microwave, but the casing screws are like nothing we've seen those requiring a torx...

Some models use an tamper-resistant screw which can be removed with a specially-designed tool available from home improvement stores & appliance parts stores. But some folks just use a hammer to tap and loosen the screw, then a "star", t-type, or small flathead screwdriver can be used to remove the screw.

this detailed photo shows how a small screwdriver fits into the screw head

Sometimes the screws are tough, so you may only be able to just bend the post slightly with a punch, then a small flat blade will "grab" enough to turn the screw. Pliers on the handle will help, too.

Another creative solution is to use a hacksaw or a Dremel tool to carefully cut a slot in the head so a flat blade will fit it.

NOTE: Always be sure to put any silver-colored cover screws back in the same holes they came from. They are often used to ensure a good safety ground from the cover to the chassis!

We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

How do i take the window knob off when removing the door panel?

Most window cranks require a special tool to remove, because they have a "C" type clip on the back side holding them on, the tool slips between the crank and door panel and pops the clip loose. You can get the tool at about any auto parts store and they dont cost much. Or Ebay for like 5 bucks140.jpgJust do a search on ebay for window crank tool.

Removal of moen #1248 cartridge

That was exactly the solution I needed for my Jacuzi bath tub with the two handle faucet. The use of the screw in the top of the cartridge was needed to be able to get a strong enough hold on the cartridge stem. Mine is all recessed about 2 1/2 inches so I grabbed the screw head and stem with long nose pliers, and then clamped down on the pliers with a set of adjustable pliers, and then used a 1/2 block of wood as a lever to get pressure on. That got the cartridge to pop out! Thanks!

It is 0.027 inch thick and 0.28 inch inside diameter.
Or just go HERE and buy it. However we ship only PRIORITY and we have 2.00 handling charge so shipping for 0.75 clip will be $7+ but if you will throw in some bags belts - it will make sense.
Tu put it on - I would not buy any special tools. Simply push it onto the axle with tip of pliers. if you end up bending the clip and it does not stay on - use pliers to shape it back to original shape and try again.

Wherever you buy it - buy 2 or 3 just in case if it gets lost.

Good Luck,
