SOURCE: r40 power jack do i remove

hey, dc jacks are always a nightmare to replace, ie i guess you want to replace it, you actually need to remove the motherboard in the machine so you need to remove all screws on the bottom of the laptop, then remove the keyboard, and you will find more screws under there, and you will have to remove screen etc to gain access, ie everything needs to come apart to get into them. and once its apart you will have to unsoldier the old dc jack and resoldier on the new one, if you aint good at soldiering i wouldnt recommend doing it yourself.

SOURCE: How is the memory cover removed from this laptop?

Once you remove the two screws all you need to do is force open the cover. It has two "fingers" that hold the cover in place even if you remove the screws. This is a security feature to make sure that your RAM is safe even if the screws are missing.
Take a flat head screwdriver (or a knife with a pointy tip) and lift up the cover placing the screwdriver/knife between the two screws.

How do you replace the front amber running light in a 2008 GMC Acadia

Turn off engine and open the hood
Remove the front wheelhouse liner. Whichever side, say we begin with the front left(drivers). If you dont wish to remove the front left tire, just turn the wheels far to the right to gain enough clearance. And you dont need to remove the whole liner and all the screws and retainers. . Just remove only those nearest the headlight and front bumper area in order to loosen the front half portion of the wheelhouse liner. Just enough for your arms to reach inside.
At this point, try to reach in for the rear of the running lamp. Work your hands inside to remove the lamp from its socket. Note the position before turning and pulling it out.

Note: If you still need more clearance for better access, you can (1) remove the tire. or (2) remove the 3 screws that secure the bumper to the body, and then pull outwards to loosen.Try to reach in again.
Just need some patience, though. goodluck. okay? : )

Doors where hard to close without the weather door seals. But with them on they will not close. The body plates more but not enuff on the cab? I need HELP.

The doors Hinges or Striker need to be adjusted to make up for the weatherstrip thickness. To do this, loosen the hinge-to-door bolts for lateral adjustment only. Loosen the hinge-to-body bolts for both lateral and vertical adjustment.
FRONT DOORS 1kbron_78.gif
  • Determine which hinge bolts are to be loosened and back them out just enough to allow movement.
  • To move the door safely, use a padded pry bar. When the door is in the proper position, tighten the bolts to 19-25 ft. lbs. (26-35 Nm) and check the door operation. There should be no binding or interference when the door is closed and opened.
  • Door closing adjustment can also be affected by the position of the lock striker plate. Loosen the striker plate bolts and move the striker plate just enough to permit proper closing and locking of the door.
TO ADJUST ON A: F-150, F-250, Expedition and Navigator
  • Loosen the front door hinge to front door bolts.
  • Adjust the front door alignment.
  • Tighten the front door hinge to front door bolts to 19-25 ft. lbs. (26-35 Nm).

FRONT DOOR FORE AND AFT ADJUSTMENT Check the rear door hinge adjustment before adjusting the front door hinge.
  • Remove the front fender.
  • Loosen the front door hinge to body bolts.
  • Adjust the front door alignment to specification.
  • Tighten the front door hinge to body bolts.
  • Install the front fender.

DOOR ADJUSTMENT The following procedure is for performing fore, aft, up, down and tilt adjustments.
  • Remove the door striker.
  • Loosen the bolts only enough to allow for slight door movement.
  • Carefully close and adjust the door until flush with the adjacent body panels.
  • Carefully open the door and tighten the bolts.
  • Re-install and adjust the door striker.
  • Check the door for proper operation and alignment.
STRIKER ADJUSTMENT Mark the position of the striker before loosening.
  • Loosen the striker retaining bolts.
  • Adjust the door striker and tighten the striker retaining bolts.
Good Luck!! A HELPFUL - 4 THUMBS - rating for this solution would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for using FixYa.

The chain popped off and I can't get it to fit back on.

Losen the bar mounting nut, then losen the chain tension adjustment screw until the chain can be reinstalled, then tighten the tension screw until the chain just sags 1/8" or so at the center of the bar then retighten the bar mounting nut.

Hard Drive

There is usually a small coer you have to remove, held by a couple of screws. It should have a HDD symbol on it; it usually looks like a small barrell.

After you remove this cover there may be one or two more screws holding the HDD frame, and after you remove these you should be aole to pull the small frame with the HDD out. There is usually a small plastic tab you can pull to get it out.

You then have to loosen the existing drive frmo the  frame, replace it with the new one and slide it in. replace all the screws, and you're done.
