Question about Baby Gear

Car seat If I put a spirit level across the drivers seat the bubble dips 15% degrees to one side. This makes for uncomfortable driving (the back and hip joints are out of alignment). Where can I get the seat reupholstered in Kent ? If possible, somewhere that will remove the seat and replace one fixed (carrying the seat from one place to another is not practical - since I won't have a car (Mercedes E Class ). Many thanks.

    The ebay option is unlikely as it is not a standard seat. Levelground - yes!. But thanks for replying.

Transmission whining

have you checked the transmissions fluid level, need to check it with the car running in park or neutral, on level ground. If its in neutral make sure the parking brakes are applied and the tires chucked to secure the vehicle and prevent rolling. Locate the dip stick for the transmission pull it out whipe it clean, then re insert it into the dip stick tube until it is fully seated, pull the dip stick out and look at the markings it should read more than half on the hot side.

The driver seat on my 2001 Toyoto Corolla leans back too much. I'd like to sit a bit more upright while driving, and so it's uncomfortable. The passenger seat is a lot better. I took it to a

You make up seat back stops out of some type
of hard plastic to move the seat back forward

If you have no stops on each corner, then the seat
comes out,upholstory off & some TIG Welding takes

cushion will feel odd

My washing machine shakes during spin mode

The machine must be level or it will shake. There should be feet under the front which screw in and out. Get a spirit level and adjust the feet so it is sitting level front to rear and side to side.
Also make sure it isn't rocking slightly when it's not running - if so screw out one of the feet till it's steady. If you don't have a spirit (bubble) level compare how vertical the sides are to the wall/cupboards etc. However a level is best as even a little lean can make it shudder.
Or your putting too much washing in it!

Bubble gone dry on my Laser Tec LM013N. Sears PartsDirect doesn't list any Item# 00948251000 Mfr. Model# LM013N Any ideas where I can get a bubble cartridge to replace the dry one?

The ones I used were 9.5mm X 25mm Acrylic Tube Bubble Spirit Level Vial. Thats ~ 3/8" x 1" Cost a few dollars including shipping. Carefully peel back the warning stickers, take out the 4 screws, pry the broken one out, clean up the old epoxy, epoxy the new one in and put back together. The whole operation takes less than 6 minutes assuming that you use 5 min epoxy to reset the new bubbles.

When you put a normal load in the machine seems to get off sided and it walks out of position. If there is a little amount of clothes it is fine. What can I do?

you need to get out a level and put it on top of the machine, put it across from left to right and then adjust the feet by turing one side or the other in our out till the bubble on the level reads in the center., now take the level and put it front to back and do the same thing. if your machine is level it should not vibrate to the point that it walks across the room.

Where do you put transmission fluid in 1988 honda accord

If this is a manual trany you need to fill from under the car on the side of the case, if your car has an automatic trany then open the hood and look at the left side of trany it will be behind the radiator fan on the trany way down you will see a dip stick this is where you check the level and fill or add fluid, you add into the same hole as the dip stick goes into, when checking the level of the trany oil make sure the car is on level ground and engine is warm, the dip stick unscrews to remove and when checking the level just put back in hole dont screw down to check level, then remove and it just read near full, if between add and full thats okay, if at add then add a pint go through gear and recheck.

What is the best tilt for the saddle?

SMP saddles are tricky to see the amount of tilt you have. Try this:

Place a level surface like a clipboard across the saddle tip to rear. On top of that place a small level, one with a bubble is fine. The seat should be positioned so that it is level or slightly (1 degree) nose down. This is your starting position.

from this position you can determine front and back. You should be sitting on the saddle so when riding you don't feel like you are sliding forward or backward. The exact tilt is a personal preference. but more than 3 degrees up or down and it will be very difficult to stay in position. If you can't get the saddle comfortable, you should consider having your bike Professionally Fit.

How to check transmission fluid and fill if nessesary.

if it is an automatic transmission, the dip stick is under the hood and should be on the drivers side of the engine,start the car leave it in park,pull the dip stick out and wipe it off with a cloth,reinstall the dip stick in the filler tube completely,and remove again and notice where the fluid level is on the dip stick,if you need to add fluid to bring it up to full,the correct fluid for your car is printed on the dip stick,you need a transmission funnel and put in in the tube you pulled the dip stick out of.
if you transmission is a standard,there is a 5/8 bolt on the side of the transmission you remove and put something like a screw driver in the hole to see where the fluid level is,.
