SOURCE: Small crack in rubber seal

the only way to fix it is to replace the bellows. tears are a common issue with front loading washers. Its not a hard job to replace but you may want to have it done for you because the wire and spring clamps can be hard to install.

SOURCE: Repair cartridge in Moen Monticello single handle lavatory faucet

After some additional experimenting, contrary to information I was previously able to gather, I discovered that the white plastic retainer doesn't (in this type of Moen faucet) actually screw off but rather is held in place by a spring clip inserted from the rear of the retainer (toward the wall side of the basing). Simply sticking a small screwdriver in the opening (approx. 45 degrees downward) and tipping the screwdriver toward the front of the faucet, snaps the spring clip out through the opening.
The plastic retainer than lifts off. Note: the flat sides on the retainer suggest that a wrench will be needed but such is not the case.

SOURCE: Cracked plastic

Yes- this is a very common problem with the Bunn home coffee brewers. However, there are no replacement parts available. Your only hope to get a replacement pour-in tray is to get ahold of yopur local Bunn repair center and see if they have a machine that broke down for some other reason and rob the tray from that. You can get a list of Repair centers in your area from www.bunn.com

Need diagram for replacing heater core

    • 4Remove the lower passenger's-side and driver's-side dashboard panels. The two panels are held in with push-pins. Raise the center of the push-pins with a small, standard screwdriver and pull the pins from the panels. Pull the panels away from the dashboard to separate them from the dashboard.
    • 5Remove the center console. Separate the gear select trim piece from the center console, using a small standard screwdriver to pry the trim piece from the center console.

Lift the console up over the shift knob and remove it from the interior.
    • 6Remove the glove box. Open the door to the glove box. Squeeze the two retaining tabs on the ends of the glove box and pull the glove box away from the dashboard. Remove it from the interior.
    • 7Detach the drain tube from the heater core cover, which is located behind the glove box. The tube can be pulled from the heater core cover by hand.

    • 8Remove the retaining screws on the black heater core cover with a Phillips screwdriver. Pull the cover from the heater core and remove it from the interior. Remove the heater core clamp screw with a Phillips screwdriver, pull the clamp away from the heater core, then pull the heater core from the housing.

How do i fix a crack in my radiator in my 1996 chevrolet cavalier


Is your radiator Plastic and metal? or Just metal? where is the crack? Can you see the "crack" or can you just see it leaking antifreze? It could be a hose clamp leak,or small hole? At this point without knowing that it is a crack for sure ,all I can say is check hose clamps ,they also sell a product called Bars . Any auto parts store has ,it seals small radiator leaks ,be sure to follow directions on bottle! I would recommend changing the raditor if your keeping the car,or really depend
on it,they like to go bad at the worst possible times!

One of my brake lights are not working on my 2002 Dodge Durango the other side is working. I tried changing the bulb out nothing and I can't tell by looking at the fuse list which needs to be changed.


if one is working and not the other, it won't be a fuse , what happens with the newer light bulbs , the plug in type with the thin lines of contact metal housed in either glass with the bulb , or plastic with the socket, is that in the socket, heat is the bad guy , look into the bulb socket,, make sure that you can see where the bulb contacts will meet up , if your very gentle,, you can use a small screw driver, ( I use a small pick tool when I do this) Lift the contact metal up a little bit,, over time the plastic melts and softens , so the when you insert a new bulb the contacts don't actually touch,, so lift the contacts up, you can also do this to the contacts on the bulb. in this case a little is better, so use care and just lift these thin lines of metal,, so that a good contact can be made

Water on passenger side floor


If it's just water, then the drain from the heater box may be plugged. On the lower part of the firewall on the passenger's side theres a drain tube, this may be plugged with leaves, etc. Find and clean the junk out, you will have to do this from under the car, careful as the water will drain out and get you wet.
If the " water " is coolant [ you should smell it ] then the heater core has failed and needs to be replaced.

Heater, and air conditioning not working. All fuses and relay switches are functional, but no power to heater.


  • Disconnect the ground cable from the negative battery terminal by loosening the retaining bolt and pulling the clamp off the terminal.
  • Locate the heater motor access panel. It will be a flat piece of black plastic underneath the dash on the passenger side of the Caravan, just behind the glove box. Use a socket to remove the five screws that secure the access panel to the dash.
  • Disconnect the plastic electrical connector from the heater motor by prying the retaining tab away from the connector with a flat-head screwdriver and pulling the connector off the motor.
  • Use a socket to remove the four screws that secure the heater motor to the dash. Pull out the heater motor and fan blades as an assembly.
  • Remove the nut in the center of the fan blades that secure the fan blades to the motor's shaft.

    My 1998 Chevy Silverado has coolant leaking from the radiator at the small metal fitting at the top drivers side of the rad. Is the a seal that can be replaced or does the entire rad need to be replaced?


    There's not usually a seal for these, the metal is commonly molded into the plastic sides of the radiator.. Remove the radiator tube and inspect the plastic around the fitting for cracks. If you find cracks in the plastic, then you know your answer. If it's leaking from around the radiator hose you could try replacing the clamp with a hose clamp that you can tighten with a screw driver.

    My guess is the plastic is cracked there, and the radiator needs replaced, but you should inspect it first of course.

    Good luck

    The fabric softner chamber seems to be clogged because after a wash it is full of water.


    The fabric softener chamber is likely full of crud and or mildew.
    1. Pull out the detergent / softener tray (press down on the tab in the back to get it all the way out). Take it and wash it as well as you can.
    2. Now, pull the washer out enough that you can get to the back of the machine.
    3. Unplug the washer!
    4. Remove the four screws holding the plastic tabs (at the top) on the rear of the machine.
    5. You should now be able to remove the top cover of the machine - slide it back and then up.
    6. There are four small hoses connected to the back of the detergent tray, and one large hose.
    7. Take a marker / tape / etc. and label these hoses 1,2,3,4 - write the corresponding number on the top of the detergent tray so you will know where to hook them back up!
    8. Using pliers, squeeze the tabs on the small clamps to loosen them enough to pull them back about an inch on the small hoses.
    9. Pull the hoses off, gently.
    10. Use a phillips head screwdriver to loosen the clamp on the large black hose. Pull it off.
    11. You may want to loosen the other end of this large black hose and remove the hose for cleaning. Mine was nasty.
    12. There is a black bundle of wires snapped into the sides of the detergent tray. Take this bundle out of the clips so it hangs loose.
    13. Remove the two screws from the front of the detergent tray. These are on either side of the opening and are usually hidden by the detergent drawer.
    14. Now, you should be able to slide the entire fabric softener tray back and out of the machine.
    15. The tray comes apart into two pieces - gently pry the tabs on the sides to separate them.
    16. Clean everything! If anything is too nasty / clogged to clean, buy a replacement part.
    17. Reverse steps to reassemble and good luck!
