Removing the cover

Bought the tool to remove the plastic rivets - the tool is too thick to even get under the rivets to pull out and when I do the rivets are in so tight they will not pull out! They make it look so easy on a video I saw - what am I doing wrong?

How to remove power window motor

Some motors are pop riveted to the door panel. With the window up remove the the arm rest screws then remove the screws hidden by the arm rest. Next use a special tool to pop off the upholstered door panel unplug the wire harness for the windows, door locks and seat controls pull off the plastic vapor barrier. Now locate the motor and look for the mount screws. If you can't see them then look for the pop rivets that hold the motor on. Before you drill out the rivets make sure you have the correct replacement rivets and the tool to install them. Once you have all that then drill out the rivets carefully. unplug the wires to the motor and pull it out of the door.

Trying to replace the pull cord on a toro m#20028 , looks like the bracket holding the cord compartment is riveted down , do u need to drill out the rivets, Briggs & Straton

Yes, its most likely spot-welded, that's not mean to be taken apart there. You have to remove the larger cover that includes the part that is spot-welded on. But first you will probably have to remove some large plastic parts. Just hunt for the screws, there will be several. Some might be hidden under labels. Good luck, Al K

How to replace power window regulator 2002 dodge dakota

Purchase replacement part first.
If you need motor only it might come without regulator.
Either way when you have the new part(s)
It will give you an idea of what has to be removed
look for plastic covers (round) or screws and remove them under the covers are screws also remove those.
neer door handle there is always a screw or tab.
on the pull handle (big one) there are 1-2 large screws remove those.
look near mirror area and remove any plastic covers. may be tabbed or screwed in??
usually lifting lightly and looking under the trim with a flashlight will tell you what is holding it.
remove plastic from around handle area.
pry lightly on the bottom and see if you have to lift up or straight out.
either way usually an up and out motion is required at same time.
tabs lift out easily while the push in plastic tabs may be more strong. if they stay in the door remove them later with trim tool. looks like a dandelion puller. then put them back on the door trim whre they came from for later installation.
If door has plastic film pull it away from the door and don't get the black stuff on you. Sticky!
Then find if regulator is bolted in or pop riveted in.
remove bolts or pop rivets and dont pinch your fingers but separate window glass from regulator.
This is the fun part you will have to find a hole to pull it out of. usually there is only one choice. and that is the biggest hole there.

How to remove headlight bulb from the 2009 accord?

Use a Phillips head screwdriver. For the drivers side, make it easy on yourself and take out the battery. Just undo the clamps and make sure you don't touch metal between the + and -. Then pop off the plastic shroud cover right behind the light; there are two plastic rivets that you pull back on and they pop out. You'll see that the center post moves in and out of the base.

Gently pull back on the electrical connector, twist and remove the bulb holder. Press the tab, pull out the bulb, and put your new one in. Reverse the above steps to button back up.

When you put the plastic shroud cover back, make sure the 'post' is not inserted into the clamps. If it is, the rivet will be bigger than the hole and you'll have problems.

Same thing for the passenger side but much easier and nothing to remove.

How do I change the license plate lights on a 1997 Lexus ES 300?

Open the deck lid (trunk) to better access the lights. There will be 2 of them. Recommend replacing both at the same time even if only one has failed. Generally sold in pairs anyway.

Directly above the license plate will be mounted 2 clear light covers. On the right side of each light cover you can see a small plastic rivet. Push in the center 1/4 inch with a small screwdriver then you will be able to pry out and remove the rivet without damaging it. This will save you from buying replacement plastic rivets for re-installation. Remove the light cover with the bulb harness attached.

The bulb harness requires a short turn counter clockwise to remove it from the light cover and the new bulbs snap into the harness. No twisting or screwing. Replace the bulb harness the same way and fasten the light cover back into place using the plastic rivet.

Saves time because both bulbs and light covers are exactly the same style, there is no left or right. Cheers!

R & R power window drivers side Need to replace power window regulator on 96 Lincoln Town Car drivers side. Need instructions on how to do this.

I am in the process of doing this now to my 96 Lincoln Towncar. Today I removed the door panel. Hidden scews that attach the door panel are at end end of the door pull strap. The plastic end pieces are removable and each have a screw underneath securing the top of the door panel.
Hidden behind the water shield material at the top of the door are two nuts that retain the top connection of the window lift. I am going to razor cut a straight line through the water shield material to insert a socket to remove the two nuts and then put duck tape over the razor cuts rather that pull the water shield material from the door frame.
Started drilling on the left rivet to detach window from the regulator and quit for the evening.
Have three rivets to drill to detach the pwoer window motor from the door frame.
Two more rivets at the bottom of the door to drill out to detach the lower window regulator from the door frame.
Do not know how I am going to remove the right rivet of the bracket that hold the window yet. Looks like a would need a long drill bit to reach through the door frame to make contact with the rivet.
The replacement rivets that came with my window regulator are to big for my rivet tool. Could end up using nuts and bolts. Sure would make it easier for the next window regulator replacement.
Hope I have some good luck using the drill tomorrow. kkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddd

How to remove front door panel on volvo s60 t5 2002 driver side

Pop the grab handle cover off, two different styles.

1. With a slot under the grab handle, take a small screw driver off and gently push up, it should just pop out.

2. Simple cover that can be separated with a bone tool or similar so you don't chip the cover piece.

Behind that you will find two Torx 25 screws, Take those out.

Around the edge of the panel should be around 8 plastic rivet type of thing.

Again...two different styles.

1. With center pins that blend in perfectly with the rivet. Should be about 3/32nds diameter. Push the center in and the rivet deals should pop out. Be sure not to lose the center piece...easy to lose.

2. Same deal but with a larger center pin.

Take the plastic triangle piece near the upper right hand area as facing the panel.

Pull bottom away from door and up to release from top section of door.

Careful removing the cable for the door lock release, and remove the connectors from the tweeter and driver's door module.
