I believe I can get the parts in Canada but must be certain what I need. Will I require special tools -- spanners, etc?

Special tools needed to replace a 2008 Honda Civic EX starter in addition to sockets, ratchet, screw driver? EX: swivel ratchet etc...

pull the neg. battery lug first.
the Plus battery lug rules are
last off , first on, or boom. acid burns. or worse. (seen many times)
you can look at it, its obvious on any car what you need.
or if really tool-less?
Read the FSM for every single step.
in my shop , i have 2 sets of metric spanners.
and 3/8 and 1./2" drive socket sets and one in deep wall.
so can do all jobs.
i cant imagine, just buying 1 socket and 1 wrench from Sears to do it. not at all, buy a set. and next time be ready.
when young, id be working to 2am fixing a car, no stores open ,with 1 DD , daily driver.
and point, 2, what if you have big arms and can grab it good.
you remove other parts to access it., and guess what, more tools,

for most cars its 2 wire lugs (nuts) spanner
and 2 wrenches on the flange nuts. 1 wrench and 1 1/2 drive.

It's down on the drivers inside frame rail. You will need a couple of wrenches. 5/8 & 13/16. I believe.

Some of them came with special "pressure" fittings that require a special tool, but it was different within the same year/manufacturer date. I would check it and if there are strange black or white plastic clips you will have to go to the parts store and ask them for the tool. It should be relatively inexpensive. Thanks.

I want to replace the oxygen sensor in my 1993 honda accord ex, where is this located and does it need special tools

it is located at the exhaust pipe before the catalyt converter. No special tool required, normal spanner will do, make sure the exhaust pipe is not hot...disconnect the electrical cable connected to the sensor first. Spray WD 40 or lubrication to the thread before unscrew the sensor.

Fuel filter wont come off.

usually there is a special tool to remove those clips... if you live in the states i believe autozone will rent/loan you the tool.... if in canada you can rent/borrow the tool from canadian tire. if you cut the clasps i doubt you will be further ahead as you would need the tool to install the new filter.

Are any special tools required or any special process to change the rear brake pads on a 2006 Jetta? I have changed pads on BMW's Fords Chevys etc....but you never know, so I thought I'd ask. thanks!

These cars usually have disk brakes in the back. You need a caliper piston rotator tool, this tool fits into the caliper piston and you must turn it in to retract the piston, it fits onto a 3/8 " drive socket wrench. Npa sell a universal one for like $15.00 - $20.00.

Steam fitting leaks

Hi there,
Yes you require a special spanner which has a slight bend at the top. You can get them at most hardware or mechanic style stores as it is a type of tool mechanics would use. I believe it to be either a 16mm or 19mm. Once you have a tool that fits, hold onto nut inside boiler and unscrew the steam assembly in an anti-clockwise fashion and remove. there will be a brass washer and nut which will probably fall into the boiler. Remove these from boiler and if you go to and click on the la pavoni machine on the right it will take you to a full parts list where you can purchase a new washer and nut. Then just re-attatch in opposite fashion.
I hope this helps.

All the best
