Take the door off. You will find a 1/4" screw every 3" to 5" all the way around the door. Remove every one of them. It amy take a couple trips around to get all of them. Before you attempt to install the gasket, soak it in hot water for about an hour (while you are removing the old gasket). This will soften the rubber so that you can work with it. After you have replaced the gasket and re-installed the door. Take a rag soaked in hot water and wipe it slowly around the gasket. This will warm it again. Now take Vaseline and smear a small amount all around the gasket. Close the door and let sit for 15 to 20 mins. Now take a dollar bill, open the door and close it on the bill so that a end of the bill is sticking out. Now pull the bill out slowly. The gasket should have a snug grip on the dollar. If not re-heat it then close the door so that the magnet will pull and stretch the gasket until it touches the box. Do this all around the door to insure that the rubber of the gasket has expanded and allowed the magnet to reach the fridge case. If you take your time, you should have no problem. Good luck

Replacing water pump & timing belt on 2001 Dodge Stratus R/T. Easy to replace front main seal, too?

oil seal failure is the main killer of rubber timing belts . Oil can come from the crankshaft seal --the cam shaft seal/s and the hydraulic belt adjuster.. So if you have the front off and am replacing the timing belt then it is fools economy not to replace the seals and any idler pulleys at the same time.

I have a 1995 Subaru Legacy LSI and am replacing the seals on the power steering pump. How do I remove and replace the front seal on the power steering pump?

You would save yourself alot of headache to just get a new or rebuilt pump. But most ring seals can be replaced by taking off the pulley, then any retaining plate over the bearing/seal/shaft to expose the seal. Then pry out working around the seal with a seal pulling tool or small flat screwdriver. To install new seal, coat outer race and inner seal rubber of seal with a very thin coating of fresh motor oil, tap lightly around seal to get it started in seal cavity be sure it is even all the way around. Then get a socket or sleeve the same diameter as the outer diameter of the seal, place over the seal and tap it down gently until fully seated. Re-assemble casing and pulley.

On driverside of engine, oil leaking out around where I call the back cam ( one closet to firewall) at end. I am talking about opposite end from timing belt on engine. If I removed cap ( w/two star screws...

That seal typically comes with a pack that includes all the cam bearing seals and the valve covers seals. It very easy to replace. Remove the valve cover and discard the old seal, remove the old cam shaft bearing cap seals. Replace the bearing cap seals and the valve cover seal and replace the cap and cover. Tighten the bolts to about 30 lbs and that should resolve the problem.

My toilet is turning on and off periodically. I replaced the flush value seal (red rubber ring), but it continues to leak. Is there a trick when replacing the seal?

Top and bottom seals:
It is best to replace both at once to assure the new seals are pliable and come together to form a water tight seal.

Replacing only one, the old seal is probably stiff or cracked and will not seal properly.

No secrete I am aware of except clean new and level parts.

Good luck!
