As long as the PC board inside teh tuner was not broken, the "F" connector can be replaced. This is a relatively simple repair for a service shop. The part costs about $2-$5. Add the local labor charge to that for the total repair cost.

Shimano STX (combo brake and shifter) rear shifter does nothing up or down. Shifters move but do not engage the derailleur. The cable is tight and obviously not broken. Is the shifter broken or can...

You can't have end-to-end intact cable movement and NOT move the derailleur unless it is NOT tight to begin with. Look closer.

You need to figure out at which end the problem lies.

You can elevate the rear wheel (or hang the bike by the tip of the seat on a low branch) and pedaling it forward with your hand you can grab the bare exposed cable somewhere in its routing (usually along the down tube) and pull sideways on it (away from the bike) to see if the derailleur moves as expected when the cable REALLY moves. Then you can decide if the shifter is or is not controlling the cable.

Everything is replaceable as required.

1990 geo tracker has a clutch problem.clutch got real hard to push and had trouble disingageing.i replaced the cable it was streached it worked for a would have lots of free travel but just...

Not necessarily, but if they weren't adjusted regularly, and the clutch gets sloppy, it works harder to apply the clutch lever. After a while it will pull heavily on one side, (usually opposite side of cable) and instead of pulling the lever against the bearing it will **** sideways and start wearing a groove on the shaft. If the cable is kept tight (at least adjusting once a year) it will pull the clutch lever evenly against bearing, and when applied will pull on both sides of the bearing instead of just the one side.

Chain off track. How do I get it back on.

Release the chain brake if equipped. Remove the drive end cover plate from the rear of the bar. Remove the bar and chain. Lay the chain out on a table or bench to inspect for sideways bending, breakage, or drive tooth damage. Inspect and clean the bar and it's oil passages in the drive end, particularly the small passages that run out to the chain groove from the large oil holes on each side. Inspect the drive sprocket for any tooth damage. Run the motor without the bar and chain for a few moments--oil should ooze out of a port on the side of the motor case where the bar fits to. If all ok, insert the bar into the space for it, pass the chain over the sprocket with the bottom run of teeth cutting toward you, and work the chain over the bar. Pull the bar outwards to tighten the chain, and fit the cover back in place (you may have to back off [CCW] the chain adjustment screw several turns). Fit clamp nut(s) (bolts) finger tight, then adjust the chain screw CW until the lower chain pulls up to the bar, but not so tight that the chain can't be moved by hand. Tighten the cover nuts and recheck chain tension. Make sure the chain is fully and carefully sharpened as a dull chain will quickly loosen due to heat and be thrown off again. Hope this helps!

My 105 fd won't push the chain in far enough to move it over to the small ring. backed the L screw out all the way, even detached the cable. Worked great one minute, not the next.

Check that it pivots freely up and down and maybe look at the mount itself. I saw one crack between the mounting screws recently.

Is your crankset tight and not wobbling? Spin it backward and view along the chainrings. They should stay in one plane with no wobble if you pull the cranks sideways. Perhaps the small chainring may be bent.

Chain jumps off guide

Remove the bar and chain. Lay the chain out on a bench or table--inspect it for sideways bent or broken links. Check the chain drive teeth for damage as well as the sprocket drive teeth. Inspect the bar chain groove for damage or sideways bending, also the tip sprocket for free turning. Start the engine after cleaning the bar mounting area on the side of the engine, it should ooze out oil after running for a short time. Clean the bar drive-end oil passages which run out to the chain groove. Clean the entire chain groove. If all checks ok, re-assemble the bar and chain, but leave the mounting fasteners finger tight. Tighten the chain until it pulls up to the bar bottom, but not so tight that you can't move the chain by hand. Tighten the bar fasteners firmly and recheck the chain tension. Start the engine and run the bar tip near some cardboard at speed for a few moments--it should throw off a thin line of oil. Hope this helps!

Front Door Digital Control Panel keeps cycling

Though I received no FREE support from FixYa (as advertised), after a restless nights sleep I figured out what to do, as I discovered in the morning my refrigerator had indeed stopped running.

Just to provide some background info, this new Kenmore refrigerator was larger than the one it replaced, however I managed to accomplish a near impossible task and squeeze it into the same space, thus it was there to stay, because moving it in and out again was an unlikely task.

Back to the solution. I decided I should try turning the refrigerator on and off. Since I could not locate any controls inside the refrigerator which would turn it off, my only option was to pull the refrigerator out of its very tight space and unplug it, which is exactly what I did. After 60 seconds I plugged the refrigerator back in and ta-da!!!, it refrigerator started running and the control panel stopped cycling and held the initial settings.

I have to admit, I have not attempted to push the refrigerator back into its space, as that is not a feat I'm ready to face.

I hope this common sense solution helps others in need, although they probably will figure it out on their own much faster than I did.

Have a GOOD day!!!

I need to replace a brake light on my 2003 Mitsubishi Outlander. We've removed the two obvious screws but are still facing resistance on the other side of the cover. Should I just pull the unit off? ...

sometimes they would be sideways. the screws just hold them in order not to move and they do have plastics hooks that still hold it tight to the metal housing. slowly slide them sideways and see if they would come off.

tnx 4 using fixya,
