Location of airbag sensors


Are you talking about impact sensors? Two are located on front right and left frame support. They are accessible from the bottom but its easier to take the bumper off to gain easy access to them. Another two are locates on bottom of B pillar around the area where the driver and passenger seatbelt tensioners are. You have to remove the door seals and plastic cover of the B pillar to gain access to them. Last two are mounted below C pillar behind the seat back cover. You have to remove cushion and back piece to gain access to them. Some people say there are versions without the sensors under C pillar tho, but I worked on one that had those sensors.

I have purchased two 2Gb Ram sticks that I want to swap out. When I open the eMachine EL1352G computer up it appears as if I must remove the DVD/CD drive to gain access. Is there an easier way than this?


If memory serves the optical drive swings out of the way.

I also, (All cables removed), lay a static free towel down on the table, and lay the computer on it's side, on the table. (Opening side up)

[Be SURE to follow Anti-Static Precautions BEFORE reaching inside your unplugged from power computer; and during working on it.
Make sure you align the Locating Notch of the Ram Memory module; with the Locating Lug in the ram memory slot, when installing.
Locks on each end of ram memory slot click, when the ram memory module is correctly installed.

For additional questions please post in a Comment.

How do I fit extra memory in my acer aspire z series


If there is no Random Access Memory (RAM) compartment cover on the rear or underside of this computer, then, as is common with All-In-One (AIO) computers, a degree of disassembly is required in order to access the RAM Module slots internally.
If so, unless you are experienced at the disassembly and internal repair or mopdification of AIOs, Liquid Crystal Display (LCD) or Light Emitting Diode (LED) Personal Computer (PC) Monitors and LCD or LED Televisions (TVs), my advice would be to take this computer in to have the RAM upgrade performed by an authorized Acer Service Center.
The internal areas of AIOs, LCD, LED PC Monitors and LCD or LED TVs are u highly unsafe and inexperienced user-unfriendly working environments because such devices contain Electrolytic Capacitors (e-caps) that are storage devices capable of storing dangerous and even lethal charges, even when the device is completely disconnected from the mains electricity. Some capacitors can store charges as high as several tens of thousands of volts.


The aim would be to remove the back panel.

Often (but not always) with AIOs, LCD, LED PC Monitors and LCD or LED TVs, the key to removing the back cover lies in first unscrewing and removing the stand.

Look out for hidden screws, particularly deep-set screws, some of which might even be completely obscured by a warranty sticker or other label, meaning that upgrading the RAM in this computer within its warranty period might invalidate the warranty unless the upgrade is performed by an authorized Acer Service Center.

When the rear cover is removed (some additional internal panels might need to also be unscrewed/unclipped and removed), you should have access to the four RAM Module slots. Two slots should be free and the remaining two occupied, each containing a single (2048 Megabytes) otherwise referred to as 2 Gigabyte (Gb) RAM Module, because the standard RAM specification of this computer is 4Gb. The maximum specified RAM for this computer is 8Gb, meaning that either one or two 2Gb Modules can be added during a RAM upgrade.

The specifications of the RAM Modules for this computer are:

240 Pin 1.8v DDR3 PC3-1066 Non-ECC Dimm (240 contact elements, 1.8 volt, 1066 GigaHertz Oscillation Cycle Clock Speed, 3rd Generation Double Data Rate, Non Error Checking and Correction, Dual Inline Memory Module).

Rototiller has no spark,it is electric start and will not start. would like wiring diagram


it depends on the model and type of small engine you have but it will be either one of two types of ignition systems.The magneto system that is fairly simple and easy to work on.Or the points and condensor type that requires the removal of the flywheel and a dust cover to gain access to. In either case the front shroud (front cover with recoil on it) must be removed to gain access to either type.

How to upgrade RAM memory for Laptop Philips X50 Freevents?


there are 2 memory slots under the keyboard cover at the front right of the laptop. If you unscrew the 4 screws at that run along the front of the base and the 2 that relate to the front right as you look down at the keyboard you will be able to gently unclip the keyboard cover on that side and gain access. be careful though as the cover is held in place on the left by a hidden clip that I have not found as yet.
The dimm installed in the back slot is a 512mb ddr333mhz pc2700 sodimm.

most usb ports are either on the back of the computer or to the side. Other models have additional usb ports on the front of the computer where you pull down or up a cover to gain access. You are talking about a usb port right?

How to remove old Mueller (1951) wall mount faucet


Faucets are installed from behind the wall and there fore you will need to either cut the sheetrock on the opposing side or cut part of the tile out on the front to gain access to the valve. It is better if you come in from behind as you can build an access panel if you ever need to gain access again.
Thanks for using Fix Ya.
