Depends on the weather. but a week is usually good. 4 to 6 inches thick. More than that you should wait 30 days.

Audio jack on my ASUS Zen pad not working


Jacks on computers and tablets go out often. Lot of ware. You can try to blow out lint and look in with magnifying glass for debris. Wiggle the plug in the jack for temporary cure. Fix requires opening the Zen and replacing the jack. This is often not possible even by qualified tech due to tine parts and integrated assembly.

If Zen has Bluetooth us that and a blue tooth speaker or head set. I got my $15 stereo headset from the internet. Possibly borrow a friends to check if it works for you before buying.

Brake pads rubbing


There is suppose to be a certain amount of interference between the pads and rotors. However, if you have a caliper that is sticking you will get excess wear on the pads. If the caliper is not sticking then you maybe hearing the warning squeakers on the shoes they are designed to give an early warning as to the pads need changing. Hope this helps.

Installing a gate post has been done at my home, involving use of a post-hole digger for best results in digging a hole that is relatively narrow across. I'm thinking it was a foot deep, but go as deep as needed to make the top of the post as high as is needed. Pour some ready-mix cement around the post and make sure the post is properly rotated to have the gate hinge holes lined up in parallel with the gate. Hold it straight as necessary until the concrete sets.

What is the right way (direction facing) to put a new foot pad on a Barracuda G4? I notice on the the new footpad that one end is a straight cut while the other is rounded. Does the straight cut end face...


The best way to install the foot pad is to the install the flat part of the cassette to feed the foot pad into the grove (as you turn it). It always always works best when warm, so if the foot pad has been out side and it is cold, then it will need to warm up.


When the foot pad finishes, the flat part will be towards the back and the rounded part towards the front of the cleaner.


INSTRUCTIONS FOR REPLACING THE FOOT PAD

Unthread and remove the cassette. Holding the Baracuda G3, press down on the yellow clip while pulling the foot flange toward you. Pull off the old footpad and stretch on the new one. Insert the locking clip of the foot flange into the large opening, push forward to lock into place insert the cassette and tighten.


If you need any additional information, please do no hesitate to ask! We all work hard here at Fix Ya and appreciate your feedback as well.

You will need to pour a substantual footing under your posts
I would suggest using Sonet Tubes of at least 12 inches and 24" deep, setting on at least 8" of 3/4 minus gravel, then fill tubes with a good 5 or 6 bag mix of concrete, once it sets surround the concrete with gravel well tamped, You can install connector plates for your posts in the top of the concrete.
You need to have enough weigh and surface so that the water and soil cannot heave the footing

How to replace front brake pads for 1991 Ford Taurus? Rotors probably need replacing as well. If I have no tools, is it cheaper to just have it done by a mechanic?


I guarantee you it would be cheaper to by tools and do it yourself. You don't need anything considered a "special" tool.

I posted the steps to replace both the pads and rotors for you as well as the cost for your parts:

Pads---$13.99 for the set (does both sides)

Rotors-- $23.99 each

OK GET A PENCIL. JACK THE CAR UP AND REMOVE THE WHEEL. REMOVE THE TWO BOLTS ON THE BACK-SIDE OF THE CALIPER. THEY MAY HAVE PLASTIC CAPS ON THEM TO PREVENT DIRT AND WATER TO GET INSIDE THEM. YOU MAY NEED AN ALLEN KEY TO UNBOLT THEM. THEN USING A FLAT-HEAD SCREWDRIVER BETWEEN THE PADS AND PISTON CAREFULLY PRY THE OPENING OF THE CALIPER OPPOSITE THE LUGS, TO LOOSEN THE PADS ENOUGH TO REMOVE THE CALIPER. SUPPORT THE CALIPER WITH A BUNGEE CORD OR ROPE TO THE COILSPRING. THEN USING THE OLD INBOARD BRAKE PAD IN PLACE, TAKE A 6 INCH C-CLAMP AND COMPRESS THE PISTON(S) BACK INTO THE CALIPER TO ALLOW THE NEW PADS TO FIT. P.S. AS THE OLD PAD WEARS, THE PISTON SLOWLY, OVER TIME, COMES OUT OF THE CALIPER TO GRIP THE ROTOR. OKAY THEN INSTALL THE NEW PADS MAKING SURE THEY ARE INSTALLED WITH THE BLACK STEEL SIDE NOT TOUCHING THE ROTOR. INSTALL THE CALIPER BOLTS AND TIGHTEN SNUGLY. YOU WILL NOTICE A SPACE IN BETWEEN THE ROTOR AND THE NEW PADS. GENTLY PUMP THE BRAKE PEDAL 2 OR 3 TIMES UNTIL THE PEDAL GETS HARD AGAIN. INSPECT THE PADS AND CALIPER, AND REPLACE WHEEL. REPEAT ON THE OTHER SIDE. BE SAFE WHEN JACKING UP AND WORKING NEAR A CAR ON A JACK. USE JACK-STANDS IF AVAILABLE. THIS SHOULD BE ALL YOU NEED TO KNOW. HOPE THIS HELPS. KEEP ME POSTED PLEASE. THANK YOU FOR AN HONEST RATING AND FOR USING FIX-YA. GOOD LUCK

Pouring concrete


I live in N.W. Wisconsin and they do pour cement in 20-30 degree weather. They have the concrete supplier mix with hot water and also add calcium chloride. The ground must be thawed with no frost in it. They pour the cement and if finish it and then cover it with tarp blankets. This does add cost to the project and if you can wait for warmer weather I highly recommend you do.
Hope this helps.
