    Ok Thank You.

    Is the spring that came off a long skinny spring? Tip the washer against the wall. If so, on the back edge af the tub platform there is a bracket sticking out toward the left wall of the cabinet. It has a hole in it and the spring stretches from that bracket to a hole in the frame right below the bracket. Sometimes the spring will cut a grove in the metal frame and let the spring pop loose.

    If this is the case, you will need to drill a hole in the frame next to where the original hole was.

    Does this help?

    Please let me know if this is the case or if I can assist you further.

    Hi, Just wondering if this helped you.

    OK, That spring should attach to the frame directly below the drum where it is attached. There should be a hole in the bottom frame. Sometime the frame gets cracked from the spring and you might have to drill a new hole.

    Let me know please.

Graco alano not folding? the push and twist handle not turning?? so the stroller does not collapse or fold. how can i get it to fold. wife needs to travel back and i am not sure airline would allow her if...

Took a while but finally figured it out. Original thinking was that the problem is in the handle twist and release mechanism. The problem actually lies in the collar where the unit locks into place. If the stroller is in the open position it can't be fixed unless it's folded up. To open stroller without the twist handle -- locate both black spring loaded collars where it locks into place (approx outside where the seat and seat back meet). Manually pull both the collars up the shaft. The spring is tight and it may take an extra set of hands to get the right leverage. Once the unit is in the folded position -- flip the stroller upside down and blast WD-40 into the hole where the spring pins are and work the black collar up and down. The twist mechanism on the handle will now work. My daughter claims it didn't even work that good when the stroller was brand new and we saved the time and trouble of shipping the entire stroller and seat system back to Georgia just to let the Graco people decide what to do. Bottom line is that this mechanism design stinks from the get go. Hope this helps.

The flash is spring loaded and does not fully open when the release button is pushed. Must be manually held in upper position in order for the flash to work. Help me fix it

The Spring mount breaks in the flash and loses tension.

Anyway if you are brave and handy you CAN fix this.

First remove the back of the camera - 3 screws in battery bay, 1 in the side above the memory card door, The two rear most on the bottom, two in the USB/video door, and the rear most on the left hand carry strap bracket.
Carefully prise the back rearward about 5 to 8 mm.

Now take a look at the two screw holes under the flash (when popped - or flopped out now that is broken) now go and bend a screwdriver of the type you used for the previous screws - you will need a 90 degree bend very close to the tip to fit in this gap and be able to turn the screws a few degrees at at time.
A little at a time lock the screwdriver into the screws and undo until the flash cover comes off.

You can then slide the shaft out of the flash to release the spring which will have the end that should fit into the broken bracket now sitting proud..

Make a suitable U shaped bracket that will slide over the broken plastic bracket and drill a tiny hole in the side where the spring will clip in.

make sure it fits really well and then epoxy into position.

Getting the spring back in is a fiddly job - I found the best way was to fit the end of the spring into the new bracket, slide the shaft just into the spring - the lever the other end of the spring down into the back of the flash body and then slide the shaft all the way into place.

I did have to file down the little plastic "blade" inside the lid which presumably is designed to assist the the (now broken) bracket from breaking....
reverse the dis-assembly and now you should have a working flash

Machine flashes F then dl. What can we do?

There's a fault detected with the door lock and switch assembly. The door lock is not working or the door lock switch is not activated. This indicates that the door lock and switch assembly is malfunctioning and needs to be replaced to address the problem.

Disconnect power to the washer and open the door. Remove the door gasket retaining hoop by stretching apart the retaining spring at the bottom of the door opening. Using needle nose pliers, start where the spring and wire are connected and pull the wire out of the groove of the door gasket.

Remove the three screws securing the door lock and switch assembly to the front panel.

Gently peel the part of the door gasket near the door lock and switch assembly off the lip of the right side of the door opening. Remove enough of the door gasket to access the door lock and switch assembly behind the front panel.


Slightly lift the door lock and switch assembly then pull it back off the front panel and out of the cabinet.


Transfer the wiring harnesses to the new door lock and switch assembly one at a time then install it in place behind the front panel. Secure the
door lock and switch assembly and put the eased part of the door gasket back into position over the lip of the door opening.

Check that the door gasket is properly seated before putting back and securing the retaining hoop around the lip of the door opening and the door gasket.
Install the retaining hoop with the spring positioned at the bottom of the door gasket.

Kick starter failure honda xl 250 kickstarter does not turn the engine around as if something has twisted off inside the engine

You will need to remove the right sidecase cover to get to the starter assembly. Once inside, you should be able to see any broken parts. If no gear, shaft, cam or ratchet problems are present, a circlip could be broken or the springs may be weak and need replacing. Chances are the clutch will need to be removed to make repairs to the starter. Please rate my answer.

Right rear shock absorber detached from the top mounting point

Turns out that after 26 years and 233 thousand miles, the original strut gave up the ghost: Rust! I took the shock strut assembly out of a 'spare parts' Honda Accord I keep and replaced the broken one in the Honda I am now driving. Mechanically the car is still excellent, but the car is destined to dissolve around me! To remove the whole assembly required taking out one 14mm bolt at the bottom and three 12mm bolts at the top, some WD 40, several pieces of wood for leverage and a heavy mallet.. Since there is a heavy duty coil spring involved, one should take out the bottom bolt first and lift the bottom of the strut free from its position, ( this is where I used a long 2x4 and another piece of wood as the fulcrum point to pry the strut upward) Then undo the top 3 bolts and the whole unit falls out. You will also need to detach the brake fluid line that uses the strut itself as an anchor. The easiest way is to take the line off from the back of the brake drum housing ( 9mm nut) and remove the horseshoe clip and push the curved metal brake line through the small hole where the line is anchored to the strut. Use care as you will need to reattach the brake line again after installing the next shock strut. (Coil spring compression tool required) Needless to say, you will need to jack the car up and remove the rear tire first to access the whole thing.

How do you change the right front headlight bulb on a kia sedona

Remove the headlight assembly. Just remove the 3 bolts with a 10 mm socket and pull it out so you can disconect the wire harness. After that pull the whole assembly out and unscrew the bulb cover. The bulb is held in with a spring clip.

I am currently replacing this bellow because of holes and five years of wear and tear. The bellow is attached to the front door assembly via a spring loaded clamp. This clamp is a solid large wire ring with loops on each end where the spring attaches. You do not have to remove the spring, just place a screwdriver between the bellow and the ring or spring to remove. This will allow you to take off the bellow from the lip of the front door assembly to reposition. The spring clamp goes on starting first from opposite of the spring and working in both directions a little at a time. ALL DONE.
