How do I change auger drive belt

First remove the spark plug wire, then either drain the gas, or put some plastic over the gas tank opening, and put the cap over it. This should prevent gas from coming out of the vent when you tip the machine. Then follow these steps:
1. Remove the cover that goes over the belts on top of the machine just behind the sheet metal auger housing.
2. Tip the snowblower forward so that it rests on the front of the machine. This will allow you to remove the bottom skid plate.
3.Remove the skid plate.
4. There should be a spring that holds the belt-tensioner against the belts. remove one end of that spring so that the belt-tensioner can move out of the way easily.
5. Now it should be possible to remove and replace the belts. Put them on the bottom pulleys first, then you should be able to get them onto the engine pulleys.

From there, replace the tensioner spring and skid plate. Put the snowblower back on it's wheels and check the operation of the auger handle to make sure the tensioner is operating properly. Once you are happy with everything, replace the top cover. Be sure to remove the plastic from under the gas cap, refill your gas tank, and put the spark plug wire back on.

How to fix mitsubishi eclipse tail lights

open the trunk. locate the plastic screws that hold the carpeting in place at the top of the trunk. remove one or two of the screws nearest to the tail light by simply pulling them straight out so you can pull back the carpeting in the trunk. now you will be able to see the screws holding the tail lights in place. remove them using a wrench to loosen the bolts, making sure you remove all of them, there should be four or so. use a flathead screwdriver end to gently remove the tail lights. now you are free to change the bulbs by twisting the plastic caps for removal from casing to expose the bulbs or you can unplug the tail light and install a new one making sure to add the bulbs to the new unit. thread wiring through loops and you're done. would be helpful to ensure all are working before reassembling. repeat process on other tail light if necessary.

Kenmore Gas Dryer Model Number 110.70882990. I must replace the Fabric Dryer switch but am not able to remove the two plastic trim caps and end caps that hold the console panel together. Please help.

Iwopink --
First you need to remove all the sheet metal screws on the console back panel. The plastic side trim cap pieces are clip-fit. Look carefully at the dis-assembly diagrams online.

2001 audi tt -- trunk release and gas cap release don't work

Hi, yes there is. To release the trunk - look on the centre console, just rearward of the front seats and you will notice a separate rectangular section in the plastic, if you lift this out you will find a cable release for the trunk underneath. To open the fuel filler cap manually, look inside the car just behind the rear light on the same side as the fuel filler and you will notice a flap in the interior trim, which is to allow access to the rear lamp. Open this and then looking towards the top you should see a loop of orange plastic - pull this towards the rear of the car to release the fuel filler.
Hope that helps Matt..

How do I change the door boot seal on a Hotpoint Aquarius WMA31N?

Ok - I will answer my own problem seeing as though I have now fitted it!
1. remove door (2 screws)
2. There is a tensioned wire loop holding the front part of the boot seal in position. - prize off the plastic cap at the 11 o'clock position, all will become clear and you will be able to remove the wire loop.
3. Remove top of washing machine (2 allen screws behind caps at the front.
4. Remove soap dispenser draw and any screws holding the front control panel and top of the door.
5. Remove bottom front plinth (just pull it off) underneath are a couple of screws holding the front panel part of the machine, remove these.
6. Remove front of machine giving you access to the steel band which locks the other end of the boot seal in position. Slacken this band right back using a nut-spinner screwdriver. Pull off the old boot and clean the lip ready for fitting of the new boot.
7. Fit new boot seal using a squirt of washing up liquid as lubricant if needed (mine didn't) to reseat the seal.
8. Refit and tension steel band.
9. Re-assemble front panel, ease boot back into front lip position then refit wire loop using a suitable pair of pliers/molegrips to crimp the retaining plastic cap back in situ.

The gas filter is located passenger side just forward of the rear axle. The band that holds the gas filter in place is a pinch band that has a nut welded/formed into it on the back/top side. A 12 mm bolt holds the band in place. The top of the band has a bracket that hold the return fuel line - this just pops off and the return fuel line can be reattached once the filter has been replaced. If your filter has never been replaced there is masking tape covering the pinch connections at both ends of the filter. Remove the masking tape. You need to put a pan under the old filter to catch any gas spillage - it will be minimal. Also the new filter comes with plastic caps on the ends of the new filter - you will want to use them to plug the old filter connectors so you need to take them off the new filter to have handy. Ther is a T off the inlet gas line that has a cap on it - remove the cap and press the needle in the T to relieve any pressure that is on the gas line - If it has been setting for an hour there will probably be very little if any pressure on the line. You can skip messing with the T and you will see about an ounce of fuel that will come out of the filter when you remove the hose.

To remove the connectors push the connector ring away from the filter housing. (I did the front first because I had more room). I used a paint can opener to help pry the hose away from the filter - it is shaped like a can opener but without a cutting edge - a large flat screwdriver would perform as well. It is a tight fit but once it starts to move it will come off. Once the hose is off use the plastic caps you took off the new filter to help hold the gas in the old filter. After removing both ends remove the holding band and place it on the new filter. The two lines will go back on easier than they came off, just push them onto the filters nipples. Put the 12 mm OR 10MM bolt back into the pinch band and reintall the return fuel line. Wipe any stray fluids and your done.

Good Luck.

check the door latches inside the oven, open the housing and spray some lubricants on the latches.
