Security torx screws

I want to detach the lap mount (legs lap, not timed lap) from underneath, so that I can mount the steering hub to a flat, metal surface and noticed tiny security torx screws are holding the thing together. Does anyone know what size screwdriver I need to undo these?

Go to a local hardware store, and ask them for a TORX screwdriver set.  The screws come in a large variety of sizes, and buying a set is the best way.  Make sure that at the base of the driver head it has a small hole for the security nib the screws have that prevents most ordinary screwdrivers from oppening them.

I have an XO tablet for my kids but they've broken the charging port... is there anyway to replace the charging port myself

Hi Johhnie,

To repair a charging port you will need the following:

  • fine tip soldering iron (Weller 15 watt)
  • Dremel tool with cut off wheel
  • De-soldering Braid
  • Torx T5 screwdriver
  • small flat bladed screwdriver (optional)
  • Diagonal cutters
  • small hemostat or fine tweezers
  • Panavise, helping hands or similar bench top holding device.

Take off the back cover and remove the battery.
Next, whip out that Torx T5 and remove the screws holding the phone together. On this one, there were only four to remove.
With the screws out, gently pull the phone apart. The lower half of this Motorola clips together, so I gently worked around the edges with a small flat screwdriver until it came apart.
The SIM card board easily separates from the phone via the flat SMD connector. Just gently apply pressure near the connector and it comes right off.
Next, the flat ribbon cable needs to be detached in the same manner, and the main PC board removed from the phone. It should pull right out once the cable is disconnected.
As you disassemble the phone, put each of the pieces into a parts bin. Any sort of container will do, but I'd avoid a static generating plastic Tupperware container.
Carefully place the board in your clamp/Panavise/whatever - I had to line up the buttons with the slots in the vise, or I probably would have damaged them when I clamped the board
You'll need a new connector before you can fix anything.
In order to check the condition of the pins, clip the two tabs that hold the rear shielding on to the connector with a pair of diagonal cutters.
With the rear shield removed, we can access the rear pins - Unlike the front, everything looks pretty good. The advantage of surface mount parts is that they don't require much solder to hold together. Unfortunately, when you're replacing a surface mount part, a small amount of solder can keep you from removing the part without damaging the board.
To keep from burning this foam seal, peel it back and stick it off to the side.
Enter the rotary tool. Sliced the top off of the connector by cutting the sides lengthwise.
Next, cut across the center of the connector. The bent pins should be gently cut loose and the upper half of the plastic connector will probably fall apart. The shielding on the sides should be cut to allow each leg to be removed individually. (Be careful not to cut the PC board below!)
Working from one side to the other, heat up the solder pad on each pin. Then use some tweezers to grip each pin of the connector. (I used a small pair of alligator forceps) If the solder is hot enough, the surface mount pin should come loose with little to no force. It's vitally important to be as gentle as possible with each one. The solder pads on the PC board are very delicate, and easy to pull up if you're not careful. Unfortunately, overheating the pads can also cause them to pull up. So be quick about it!
With the delicate pins out of the way, I carefully cut apart the remaining plastic and removed it.
Finally, the remaining legs of the shielding were heated and removed from the board.
After the new port is aligned (double check the pins in the rear!) solder one of the shielding legs to the board. Double check the pin alignment again, and solder the other legs. Now the port should be solidly mounted.
Next, the pins on the new port need to be soldered. The super fine tip on my 15 watt Weller pencil made this easy. Alternatively, you can use a wider tip to solder things and go back over the pins with de-soldering braid to remove any solder bridges. If you forgot to remove the rear shield, you'll have one hell of a time soldering the pins. On this particular phone, the metal shielding behind the port made it impossible to access the pins without removing the rear shielding.

How do I replace the ignition lock cylinder assembly in a Toyota T100

  1. Removing the Cylinder
    • Lift the hood and prop it open. Disconnect both battery cables from their terminals. Wait at least three minutes for all residual electricity to discharge before you begin working near the airbag.
    • 2Locate the two airbag attaching screws, one on each side of the steering wheel. Pry off the plastic covers to reveal a Torx screw. Use a Torx screwdriver to loosen these two screws, which you can't remove completely. They will stop when fully retracted and remain attached to the steering wheel.

    • 3Lift the airbag out of the steering wheel. Disconnect the airbag wires from the harness by lifting up the plastic tabs on each side and pulling the two sections apart. Place the airbag face up in a safe location.
    • 4Unplug the horn electrical connector, which you will see once you remove the airbag.
    • 5Point the front wheels straight ahead. Remove the steering wheel retaining nut using a socket. Place a mark on the steering wheel and the steering wheel shaft so you will be able to realign them during reassembly.
    • 6Attach the steering wheel puller. There are bolt holes on each side of the steering wheel shaft. Screw the bolts on the puller into these holes and turn the puller handle clockwise to force the steering wheel off the shaft.
    • 7Remove the steering column covers by detaching the two screws on the front of the column. You will see these once you remove the steering wheel. There is one additional screw under the steering column. Pry off the ignition switch bezel. This is the plastic piece that surrounds the ignition cylinder. You should be able to pull it off using your fingers. If not, use a small flat-head screwdriver.
    • 8Unplug the connector from the ignition switch. This connector simply pulls out of the wiring harness, without any clips to remove.
    • 9Insert the key into the ignition and turn it to the "ACC" position. Insert a small screwdriver into the hole located on the bottom of the ignition switch casing to depress the release button. With the button depressed, use the key to pull the cylinder out of the casing.
    Installing the Cylinder
    • 10Insert the key into the new cylinder and turn it to the "ACC" position. Insert the cylinder into the casing. When it seats, you should hear and/or feel a click. Try to pull the cylinder out. If you cannot do so, it is properly seated. Reconnect the ignition switch wire to the wiring harness. Snap the plastic ignition bezel back into place.
    • 11Replace the steering column covers and the three screws.
    • 12Place the steering wheel back over the steering wheel shaft, ensuring that the marks you made earlier are aligned.Turn the handle of the steering wheel puller counterclockwise until the steering wheel is fully seated. Detach the puller. Replace the steering wheel retaining nut.
    • 13Connect the horn wires.
    • 14Connect the airbag wires to the wiring harness and place the airbag into the steering wheel. Tighten the Torx screws on each side of the steering wheel and replace their covers.
    • 15Reconnect the battery cables.

  • 6Unplug the passenger air-bag electrical connector and insert the red shorting connector located next to the connector into the air-bag side of the unplugged connector.
  • 7Pry off the small cover behind and on each side of the steering wheel using a small flat-head screwdriver.
  • 8Unfasten the torx bolts under the small covers using a ratchet and a T30 torx bit and remove the bag assembly from the steering wheel. Place the bag in a safe place away from your working area with the cover facing up.
  • 9Unplug the horn connector located on the upper side of the steering wheel assembly and the cruise control switch located off center and towards the right of the steering wheel assembly.
  • 10Make alignment marks on the steering column shaft, at the center of the steering wheel, and the steering wheel assembly so that you can reinstall the steering wheel in the same exact position. Use a marker.
  • 11Unfasten the steering-wheel retaining nut on the center of the assembly using a ratchet, ratchet extension and socket. Hold the steering wheel steady with one hand as you remove the retaining nut.
  • 12Rock the steering wheel carefully from side to side as you pull the wheel off the center shaft. If the steering wheel is stuck, install a steering wheel puller on the assembly and detach the wheel from the shaft.
  • 13Remove the upper and lower steering column covers using a Phillips screwdriver.
  • 14Unplug the ignition switch connector.
  • 15Insert the key into the lock cylinder and turn the key to the "On" position.
  • 16Unfasten the two ignition-switch mounting bolts from the steering column using a ratchet, ratchet extension and socket. Then remove the switch from the steering column

    Manfrotto 685B locking problem

    I had the same problem with the Manfrotto 685B, and it was due to the grease from the middle section leaking into its locking mechanism. I fixed the problem by: 1. Detach the middle from the bottom section by twisting the metal hub between them counterclockwise. 2. Wipe the grease off from the middle section's locking mechanism, especially from the three gray protrusions. 3. Use a bit of dish detergent to degrease the inside shaft of the bottom section. 4. Dry thoroughly. 5. Reassemble the section back, pressing the monopod release lever to facilitate the insertion. Reclose the metal hub. Ha! Fixed!!1!1!!eleven1!!

    It is located on your steering column. The cover on the column is either held on with 5.5mm hex head blots or phillip's head screws. The switch itself can be held on with phillips, torx, or security torx bits. Sometimes loosening the mounting bolts on your steering column makes the job easier.

    How hard Is It To change a heator core or should I say How Long will It take

    Removing the instrument panel from a vehicle is generally a complicated process. There are several external parts you first need to disconnect, like trim panels and the steering wheel. However, because some internal components like the heater core are stored behind the instrument panel, replacing them requires removing the instrument panel (and the necessary external parts before it). The exact process can always vary for each model vehicle, but there is a general process to keep in mind for most models.
  • 1 Make sure the wheels on the vehicle are facing straight ahead and lock the steering column. Disconnect the negative battery cable from inside the engine. If the vehicle has air bags, wait at least two minutes for them to discharge.
  • 2 Disconnect the trim panels surrounding the door frames. Many of these can be pried off with a trim tool; others might be screwed on with the screws needing to be removed.
  • 3 Remove the center console if there is one by prying off all its trim bezels, unscrewing and removing the trim panels and removing all fasteners (some may be concealed, like under the floor of the console glove box).
  • 4 Detach and remove the steering wheel. Disconnect the air bag from the wheel by loosening the Torx screws mounting it to the wheel and disconnect the electrical connectors. Mark the steering shaft's relationship to the hub, remove any bolts securing the shaft and use a puller to disconnect the wheel.
  • 5 Remove the instrument cluster above the steering column. Remove the cluster bezel by removing any pushpins and clips holding it in place. Remove the mounting screws at the top, then pry the panel off its bottom clips with the trim tool, pull out the cluster and disconnect the electrical connectors.
  • 6 Remove the glove box from the passenger side. Open the box and remove any screws at the corners, then squeeze the sides to clear the stoppers and pull it out. Disconnect the electrical connector for the passenger air bag if there is one and detach the air bag module.
  • 7 Pry out and remove all other trim panels attached to the instrument panel. Remove all the air conditioner/heater/defroster vents.
  • 8 Lift the instrument panel up and towards the rear of the vehicle--this will likely require an assistant's help. Disconnect any other electrical connectors you see, then carry the panel out the driver's side door.

  • heater core should be behind all of this stuff that has to come out to get to it wait theres more read on and then

    Hi haw can i change my wile Bering?

    Park the car on level ground. Put the transmission in park and set the parking brake. Jack the car up and place the jack stands underneath the frame of the car.

    Use the tire iron to remove the lug nuts from the wheel and pull the wheel off.

    Use the ratchet set to remove the mounting screws on the disc brake caliper. Pull the caliper loose and then slide the disc off of the wheel studs.

    Use the ratchet to loosen and remove the wheel hub mounting bolts located on the backside of the steering spindle.

    Pull the entire wheel hub assembly off of the steering spindle. Take the assembly to a machine shop and have them use a hydraulic press to press out your bearing (the bearing is pressed into the hub assembly and is too big for at-home extraction).

    Press in the new wheel bearings and then reassemble the wheel hub by mounting it on the steering spindle again.

    Slide the disc back into place on the wheel studs and then remount the caliper with the mounting bolts. Slide the wheel back in place on the studs and tighten down the lug nuts in a star pattern.

    Lower the car off of the jack stands or move on to change the other side's wheel bearings as well.

    How do i put the start ignition switch in a 1989 ford bronco? it looks like a 2 seperate prong thing with 2 metal whole at the other end for guessing it goes in the dash or some thing next to...

    hi, although i havnt worked on this particular car, they're pretty much the same throughout. you'll first have to take off the shroud behind the steering wheel which surrounds the ignition barrel, there should be screws/torx underneath which secure this. once removed you should be able to see the ignition barrel and a small retaining screw/s holding it into the frame. undo these. turn the key two clicks i think, just before the car starts. underneath the barrel you will notice two little spring loaded pins which you have to push up with a screwdriver so you can wiggle the barrel out. next just unclip the electrical connections, pull them through one at a time and the barrel should slide free. if you mean youve lost the keys and want to replace the barrel im not sure! hope this helps mate, Rob.
