Very, unless you think you can drive on three wheels. Get it looked at professionally by a Saab dealership who will probably have seen this before.

    Some spring and shock absorber units have pressed metal cups to hold the spring, so it might not all be doom and gloom.

How do I remove the parking brake release cable from a 1997 Ford F-150?


I will try to help you here, if you are talking about at the rear drum /or disc removal there is a spring connected to the cable and this spring needs to be pushed back so you can get the welded bullet end of the cable out of the retaining lever you can make this yourself or you can buy the tool the tool looks like a long piece of metal with a circle hole at the end with a space cut out for the cable to fit through it then you push back on the spring to release the tension and you will be able to get the cable end out from the emergency brake actuator lever it requires some force to do this so if you decide to get innovative and make your own tool use a heavy gauge L bracket shape bracket a big one is required so it won't bend and you will have the leverage you need and the space for your hands to hold it ,cut the bracket down just to where the first hole is leave some metal here don't cut straight to the hole now at the center of the hole in the bracket cut a slice in it big enough for the cable to fit through it and your done put it on the lever to push the spring back and your in like flint a home made tool and a job well done how about that the other way is buy the tool about $20.00 bucks if you can find it the bracket described above is about $3.50 and at home depot / Lowes or what ever hardware store you can find and comes with the ability to create your own tools and a problem solving mind YEAH! YOU CAN DO THIS LATER MAN!

The flash is spring loaded and does not fully open when the release button is pushed. Must be manually held in upper position in order for the flash to work. Help me fix it


The Spring mount breaks in the flash and loses tension.

Anyway if you are brave and handy you CAN fix this.

First remove the back of the camera - 3 screws in battery bay, 1 in the side above the memory card door, The two rear most on the bottom, two in the USB/video door, and the rear most on the left hand carry strap bracket.
Carefully prise the back rearward about 5 to 8 mm.

Now take a look at the two screw holes under the flash (when popped - or flopped out now that is broken) now go and bend a screwdriver of the type you used for the previous screws - you will need a 90 degree bend very close to the tip to fit in this gap and be able to turn the screws a few degrees at at time.
A little at a time lock the screwdriver into the screws and undo until the flash cover comes off.

You can then slide the shaft out of the flash to release the spring which will have the end that should fit into the broken bracket now sitting proud..

Make a suitable U shaped bracket that will slide over the broken plastic bracket and drill a tiny hole in the side where the spring will clip in.

.
make sure it fits really well and then epoxy into position.

Getting the spring back in is a fiddly job - I found the best way was to fit the end of the spring into the new bracket, slide the shaft just into the spring - the lever the other end of the spring down into the back of the flash body and then slide the shaft all the way into place.

I did have to file down the little plastic "blade" inside the lid which presumably is designed to assist the the (now broken) bracket from breaking....
reverse the dis-assembly and now you should have a working flash

How do I change the pull starter cord?


If this is like most simple mowers (using briggs & stratton engines and some others) the recoil starter is in an assembly which is spot welded onto a metal cover. You may have to first remove a plastic shroud (which might include the gas tank - which should have a shut-off valve). Then you should be able to remove the metal cover that includes the recoil starter. When you get that off you will see a plastic spool that holds the cord. This spool is probably held in place by a couple of metal tabs that are bent down. Bend those tabs up with pliers. Underneath the spool is a spiral spring that provides the recoil. Take careful note of how this all goes together. Buy a new cord (available by the foot at a hardware store) and wrap it around the plastic spool. Use a piece of tape to hold the end of the new cord above the spool so you can thread it through the hole in the metal housing later. Put the spring and the spool in place, then wind the spool to put tension on the spring - about 5 turns in the direction that would push the string out through the hole. Once you have the spring "wound up" remove the tape and thread the end of the cord through the hole. Now bend those metal tabs back down. Put the handle on the cord end (or tie a knot) to keep the spring from pulling the end of the cord back through the hole. Reassemble the rest and you are in business.

Pull cord pulled out from machine,how do i replace and is there a spring invoved in the replacement?


Yes, there is a spring, but it's not too bad to work with, but there will be a fair number of screws to remove. If this is like most simple mowers (using briggs & stratton engines and some others) the recoil starter is in an assembly which is spot welded onto a metal cover. You may have to first remove a plastic shroud (which might include the gas tank - which should have a shut-off valve).

Rear springs replacement


You will need a spring compressor first of all. You have to remove strut, compress sring to get cartridge and spring apart and then replace new spring on strut and replace into vehicle. This is a nasty job without a hoist

GE profile model GSD 4120y70BB the second soap dispensor does not open at the right time. When cycle is done and the door is opened the soap has just ran down. It is like it is opening to late.


Hi

Many dishwashers (but not all) use a BI-metal strip that heats up once power is applied to it. The BI-metal strip bends and allows the soap door spring to open up the dispenser. This bi-metal strip is not given full 120 volts power, the timer "shunts" the power through either the heating element ( most common ) or the motor and this gives the bi-metal strip lower than full power to work and open. Most often the bi-metal strip has lost its ability to bend properly and needs to be replaced. Older GE dishwashers used a mechanical arm driven by the timer to open the dispenser = no electrical bi-metals. Newer (plastic liner) Maytag dishwashers and many newer Whirlpool and Frigidaire dishwashers use a wax motor to open the soap dispenser; this wax motor does receive 120 volts to work. The plunger inside the wax motor slowly moves and pushes the plunger and door open. This is what a wax motor looks like.


Please do rate the solution and revert for further assistance.


Thanks
Rylee

Biposto, Kickstand bending?


My Monster kick stand warped when weight was on it, and my Superbike looks like it will fall over... Lucky for me that I ride the track and it spends its' life on a rear stand. Don't bend the stand around too much because obviously it will become weakened in the process.

This is a dangerous job if you do not have the proper equipment for compressing the spring that is around the rear shock. I do not recomend performing this job without the proper equipment. Unloading the spring without it compressed can cuase injury.

If you have the proper equipment this is how you do it.

REMOVAL - SHOCK ASSEMBLY NOTE: Access for the nuts attaching the rear shock assembly upper mount to the vehicle is through the inside of the trunk.
  1. Roll back carpeting on top of the rear shock tower to access shock mounting nuts.
  2. Remove plastic cover from the top of the shock assembly.
  3. Remove 2 nuts attaching the shock assembly upper mount/spring seat to the shock tower.
  4. Raise vehicle on jackstands or centered on a frame contact type hoist.
  5. Remove the rear wheel and tire assembly from the vehicle.
  6. Remove two fasteners holding the splash shield to the shock assembly upper mount.
  7. Remove bolt attaching shock absorber to rear knuckle
  8. Remove the shock absorber from the rear knuckle first when removing the shock absorber from vehicle by pushing down on the rear suspension.
  9. Move shock assembly downward and tilt top of shock outward, then remove shock assembly from vehicle through top of wheel opening.
