Tool to open the heater

Can you tell me what tool is required to drive the screw out of the casing. Looks like it is a special tool. Please advise if it is available in the market. Thanks a lot.

    Screws are basic t-15 or t-20 but they have a small metal "tip" inthe middle that prevents the screw driver from backing it out. So, do they make a tool for these (besides the ones at the factory which we probably do no have access to)?

You don't need to remove those triangular screws. Just remove the standard phillips head screws. Slide the plastic "foot" off, & you should gain all the access you need.
If you should determine to go after those triangular screws, anyway, there are two ways. 1. with a dremel cutting disk, cut a slot in the head of the screw, and remove with a regular screwdriver. 2. Sacrifice a cheap screwdriver by putting it to a grinding wheel, and forming it into a triangle.

Need to replace battery and do not know how to open case.

Please do not try to open the case. It requires special tools. Too many people have destroyed their Nuvi's trying to do this. Please see this link:

On my babyliss type S47b, special screwdriver???

The screw may be triangular, or Torx (star pattern), or even 'pin-in-Torx', which all require special tools. They do it to prevent people from opening them up. But you can buy the tools, and for triangular screws I ground an old screwdriver down to match the shape!

Those screws are called 'Tamper Proof' or 'Tamper Resistant'. If you google those you'll find tool sets that will open dang near anything.

Need to remove the Headlamp/dash light dimmer/mirror control panel. Please tell me how to remove the panel without breaking it. Do I need to remove the "cowling" below the sterring collum, or need a...

I have a 2002.
After making sure you remove all visible screws, these panel snap off and snap back on. Any resistance, re-look in that area for a missed screw(s).
Restated: Once all screws have been removed, pull out the panels. It is a lot easier that it looks.
Start with the lower steering column. Look from underneath with a flashlight. You will see the screws and screw holes. The lower "kick" panel (driver side) screws can be seen by looking underneath it.
Other than a screw driver, no "special tools" are needed.
Let me know if this helped, or if you have additional information or questions. Feel free to contact me at!

How to Open a Gucci watch

Most watches are either screwed on and typically have a series of small notches around the circumference of the case back. A special tool is generally called for. Otherwise they are "snap back" . These are simply pressed on. To remove you can carefully use a regular knife in the absence of a "case knife". There is usually a small gap/groove/notch area to insert the balde and lift the back off.

Replacing '97 Hyundai Accent Front Brake Rotors

This is not the first mis-guided post I've seen about this. A screwdriver for the set screw is fine on some models. Other models the front wheel bearings must be removed and usually replaced to get the rotors off. The bearings are fairly cheap at the local napa etc.. So just replace them. Be careful of the advise given on here. People think that one answer covers all models. This is not the case. Usually given buy a youngster who honestly beleives hes a mechanic.

Rear brake shoes VW lupo 1 ltr

a special tool is required to turn and press the caliper piston at the same time this tool is quite expensive so i sugjest having the pads replaced proffesionally but if you have the time a patience you can try to press the piston in with some slip joint pliers or screw driver while you turn the piston clockwise/ counterclockwise (depending on side) with something else to screw it back into it's bore. best of luck. P.S. many manufacturers are using this style caliper piston now so if your a mr. fix it the special tool is worth buying.

Heater Core leaking

There is a special tool - heater hose disconnect tool - that looks like a two pronged fork on the end of a handle that is recommended for use in releasing the clips on the hoses. I was able to get the tool as a loaner from Autozone, OEM#27106. (actually they charge you for the tool and then credit you back when returned). I used advise from another blog on the topic and wrapped the large 'fork' of the tool with metallic duct tape to enable it to slip over the clips. Theoretically you puch the fork down over the clips and then push in to release the clips...remove the tool and slide the hose off (theory and practice are two different things). Having just completed this repair myself I can tell you that the special tool did not work well. It has to be aligned too exactly and there was not sufficient space under my hood for this to happen. It did make turning the hose easier however and I do think it may have released one side of the you know it's hard to see/tell given the location of these connectors. What I found most effective, though time consuming, was to twist the top hose to expose one clip. Using a long shafted screw driver and a small hammer, I literally punched the clip under the retaining ring. Then rotating the top hose 90 degrees to expose the other clip I did the same thing. Whew... then onto the lower hose. Purchase replacement clips (the pair at Ford dealer were about $30) as getting them off is not easy...I used spring hooks, needle nose pliers, etc. but knew I had replacements to use. The new clips also come with the be installed in rubber, plastic, rubber sequence. Pushing the hoses back on the replacement core was challenging also. I found that flarring the wings of the clips helpped as well as twisting the hose so that the tabs would hit the metal frame of the hole and not the padding. Good Luck, it's a tight fit.

Faux men's rolex date just

An authentic Rolex will have a screw down back with exactly 144 small teeth. You can only open a Rolex case with a special Rolex tool (Key). We use the Bergeon hand wrench to open Rolex cases. Supplied with 6 Bergeon grooved chucks(18.50, 20.20, 22.50, 26.50, 28.30 and 29.50 mm), these are the same chuck used in the Bergeon 5700RO and will fit in the Bergeon Bit Adpater for 5700-Z Case Opener our number FB-231. Replacement chucks and replacement handle are available in case you have a set that is missing a piece. As is the case with any fine mechanical instrument, special tools are required in order to properly service and adjust a precision instrument such as a fine timepiece. If you are not experienced, it is better to leave this to a Certified Rolex tech. If you do feel you want to proceed, this tool will set you back about $140.00 or so. Just as the internal parts of the Rolex are exact, so is the watch case that protect the valuable watch movement. These tools are used to open the Rolex case without causing expensive damage. You can call Bob Frei at 510-832-0355 ext. 2 from 11 AM to 5 PM Pacific Time Zone, to order one if you wish, or several other sellers of these fine tools can be found by doing a little research on the net. Hope this has helped you.
