Doesn't quite fit into the wall sleeve. Can I remove the outer case of this a/c to get enough room to slide it all the way in?

I assume you have a window type aircon. if you can't slide the main unit into the shell then maybe the hole in the wall needs to be chipped. Although you can remove the outer case, it is not recommended because the internal parts would be exposed to the elements and would shorten the units life.

I hoep this helps.

How do you open BATTERY panel of robertshaw 9400 thermostat? Front releases, but batteries are covered with 2nd plastic panel--flat, tightly fitted, with no give to sliding thumb pressure. Thanks!

Sometimes batteries are shrink wrapped together with a plastic sleeve. They are often special batteries that have soldered tags. If that is the case, they will lift out.

How do I remove and replace front brake disc pads for a 1998 Nissan Presage 2.4 Litre cylinder

Jack the car corner your working on, remove the wheel/tire, use a c-clamp to squeeze the brake caliper and outside pad together pushing all the fluid back to master cylinder, remove the 2 slide bolts attaching the caliper to the bracket, slide the caliper off, replace the pads, pit the caliper back on and tighten the 2 slide bolts, now pump the brake pedal to get the fluid back into the caliper, put the wheel/tire back on and back on the ground. Same with other side. Your only problem is finding the c-clamp you need that's just large enough to squeeze the piston back in to begin with. Place the c-frame on the back of the caliper and the screw in part on the outer brake pad and turn it in till it stops. Gives you lots of room for removal and new pads will fit right in.

Can't remove bit

Remove the ring clip which holds the chuck outer sleeve in place and take out the washer and spring, the outer sleeve should now slide off, under the sleeve you will find two steel balls in the holes of the driver shaft, remove them (use a magnet if they won't come out easily) you should be able to get the bit out now, if not clamp the bit in a vice and using a soft face hammer strike the end of the driver shaft to release the bit. Note: dismantle the chuck over a cloth in case the balls fall out so you don't loose them

Can a kx250 2002 two stroke barrel be rebored or should the sleeve be replaced .

Replace the sleeve is the only option - I think there would not be enough cylinder wall left if you rebored it as it is a sleeved cylinder it relys on the sleeve for extra wall thickness and strength you can rehone the sleeve if it is not too badly scratched you can get honing tools around $80 ish? they fit into cordless drill

Need assembly instruction for gaggia titanium steam wand. doesnt seem to go far enough up the tube after i cleaned it

Slide the large sleeve off, now you have just the shorter plastic nozzle with the rounded cap. Unscrew that cap - hold the plastic nozzle with one hand while twisting the cap to unscrew it.
Inside is a hard plastic ring and a soft rubber sleeve. Sometimes the soft rubber sleeve will not come out of the nozzle - if so then just leave it in - but if it will come out, take it out and clean everything really well.
OK ... now put the cap on the steam pipe, then the hard plastic ring, then the rubber sleeve - and slide them up high enough on the pipe - then slide on the nozzle last. Then tighten the cap down on the nozzle until it is gripping good and tight. Then slide the long outer sleeve and you should be good to go.

Need to remove through wall fedder air conditioner

If it has a sleeve, just remove the front cover and give a little yank on the unit and it will start sliding out of the sleeve. Unplug the unit first, and the unit will slide all of the way out of the sleeve and you can just set it on the floor or wherever.

2003 mini cooper ignition coil replacement

the bolt sleeves are not meant to come off, if you have bought an OEM coil then they should slide straight into the 4 corner holes in the coil but I suspect you have bought a performance coil such as an MSD unit, which has copper sleeves in the holes already that need drilled out slightly to allow the stock sleeved bolts to fit, or as you say you can buy new unsleeved bolts and just use them. Dont tighten them enough to crack the casing of the coil, it is not necessary to have them dog-tight.

Removal of old A/C

It depends on how YOU have it installed. It will slide out of the case and the new one MIGHT fit into the same case. This is trial & error. If not, slide the guts out, remove the case, install the new case & slide the new unit into place.
If it's a window unit, just remove the whole thing and replace it.

I need to replace the cord. There is a short near the housing.

hi may i suggest ? if you wish to renew the complete cord/wire? why not fit a longer length to facilitate more reach thro different rooms from the preferred wall socket ? the problem of short /breakage of wires within outer sleeve near casing is common on lots of vacs it is not a difficult job to replace if you are competant with wire and colour codes remove the access cover where wire enters vac then observe the attachment of each wire ? then disconnect faulty cable transfer the rubber tube that is normally fitted at entry point to vac at this point to new cable remove outer sleeve of new cable same length as old cable to reveal the inner wires then connect to vac sockets resecure cable to vac as previous dont forget the rubber tube? refit entry cover and fit a new 3 pin plug bs kite marked ? then away to vac the rooms? hope this helps

Thru the wall pac unit

Yes, typically all through the wall type a/c's are in a sleeve. The sleeve is installed to the building and the a/c slides into the sleeve. Sometimes the a/c wil be fastened or attached to the sleeve, sometimes it will not and it will slide right out. Just be careful, they are very heavy and awkward.
