There is a spring at the bottom center of the door gasket. Stretch that out and a wire will come off from around the gasket you can then pull the gasket off and reach in. Be sure you get the gasket back on all the way and the wire right or it will leak. Good luck.

How to remove injector once fuel rail is free. have fuel rail up but cannot get injector off it...


The injector just pulls out, twist it around to break the O rings seal and pull while you twist it. The Injectors rubber O ring seal gets vulcanized to the metal rail after many years, and can be difficult to remove.

Here is a picture of the ionjector and the sealing O rings at both ends.

How do you remove the piston from a front master cylinder on a Kawasaki KZ1000 B3 1979 LTD


first you must remove the lever from the master cylinder, then you will see a rubber seal this must be removed, it is not always possible to remove this seal without damage so i would suggest u find a replacment, the outer of the seal can corrode to the master cylinder, once you have removed this you will find a circlip which holds in the piston, remove this keeping a slight pressure on the piston as it is spring loaded, remove carefully so u can ensure correct reassembly of parts, in some occasions the circlip is located on top of the rubber seal.

Pool sweep pump stuck and will not turn.Binding on impeller to rubber seal.How to disassemble remove impeller and seal.


Sounds like maybe your motor bearing are going bad, or have already seized up. When you say "rubber seal" are you referring to the rubber portion of the shaft seal? Either way, to remove the impeller you need to lock the motor and unscrew impeller. Depending on the motor, you remove a cap in the middle of the tailpiece and hold with a wrench, or remove a cap that covers the whole end and grab the shaft with a wrench (usually 7/16") by sliding it under one of the components (not sure exact part off top of my head have to look at it) and then turning impeller. If the impeller has a bolt or screw in the middle remove that first. It should be reverse thread so make sure you don't turn the wrong way and break or strip. If there is no screw, or after you've removed it, just spin the impeller off (it should be counter clockwise standard thread). If you can't do it by hand and assuming you don't have an impeller wrench, be very careful and use a large pliers, pipe wrench, or strap wrench to loosen it. After that you unbolt the motor from the seal plate, pull the seal plate away from motor (this removes half the seal), and then pop the other half of the seal from the seal plate. If the bearings are seized up then you'll have to replace the motor, or have it rebuilt.

Can you slide the transmissin away and replace seal


It would be nice to know what year & model.
But still not likely.
To replace the front seal If it is an AUTOMATIC, you must remove a lot of parts.
For front wheel drive the first thing are the wheels. Then drop the lower ball joints,break loose the struts from the tie-rods. In some cases lower control arms, sway bars, stabilizers,exhaust systems
The drive shaft(rear wheel drive) or drive-axles (front wheel drive),
transmission mount
cross-member (rear wheel)
shift rods or cable
hydraulic lines (if automatic)
inspection/access cover at bottom-rear of engine,electrical sensors(if applicable). Then the Bell housing bolts as well as torque converter bolts.
And THEN, because the torque converter holds the majority of your transmission fluid the transmission must be removed with the torque converter attached.Moved far enough away that the converter can be removed safely without spilling the fluid everywhere and where the removal & replacement of the seal can take place where as not to damage it during installation.
Some seals if aren't put it perfectly straight will kink the rubber and jeopardize the whole job.
And the worst thing that can happen after that big job is to have a leak. It must be done right without taking short cuts.
Its a $10.00 part but $300 -$1000 OR MORE to put it in.

Hoover Quattro Whisper 1400 washing machine AE 240 I would like to clean the filter as scum builds inside the rubber seal on the door Cant find the filter, no obvious opening


On the front bottom of the machine there is a plastic 'kick plate' that clips/pushes on. Remove this plate and you will see the filter with a cover secured by a star/phillips screw. Loosen screw and twist this cover off to gain acess. Don't do what i've just done and twist without removing this screw as it breaks it:-(

anyone who knows where i can get a filter cover please post back!

I have never been able to remove sealed in glass without breaking it. But in theory if you can get a guitar string through the sealant and pull it through like a cable saw you might get it out. I've tried 15 times, and have 15 broken windshields to show for it. good luck

GE Front Loader rubber boot completely out of shape


You can replace the rubber door seal yourself if you are logically minded and are handy with tools. Isolate the washer from the mains supply. Remove the top fixing screws at the back of the washer. Slide the top of the washer to the rear of the washer and remove. Now you will be able to see the outer drum and the securing band to the drum. This needs loosening and moving clear of the outer drum so you can disconnect the seal from the drum. When you open the door, you will find see that the door seal connects to the washer outer body. You should see a holding catch probably made of plastic. This has to be removed and take care not to break anything. When re fitting the seal,you will find on the front inner edge a small hole, this must be in the 6 o'clock position. Working from the door access, feed the new seal on the outer drum and secure it with the retaining band that you removed earlier, at this stage do not fully tighten as you may need to readjust the seal later on. Now working at the door, feed on the door seal and position the small hole at 6 o'clock. If you find that the seal is twisting, then you will have to readjust the the seal on the inner outer drum. When everything is lined up, tighten the inner securing band then the outer retaining band by the door. Recheck that the small hole on the door inner lip is at 6 o'clock and both the door an outer drum securing bands are tight. This done, check for leaks by part filling the washer and then putting the washer on an emptying cycle. If all is well, then isolate the power to the washer and refit the the top of the washer and secure with the screws you removed earlier. On no account put your hands or tools inside the washer when it is on and connected to the power supply.

I have not yet replaced a door seal on your model of washer, but I have done quite a few and the process is the same. I hope you can follow these instructions and if you come across a snag, think about it and i am sure you will find the solution. You can always get to me at FixYa.
