I take it they are the transport bolts. Remove the top cover and look down the back so you can see the part that holds the transport bolt.. Use a set of pliers and hold the part while you screw the safety bolt out.

How to change a mitre saw blade


When changing the blade on your mitre saw the first step is to unplug the tool for safety reasons. DO NOT disassembly the safety cover, there is a bolt on the housing that when loosened allows the cover to be moved away from the blade to expose the spindle bolt. After moving the ASSEMBLY away from the blade turn the blade by hand slowly while pushing on the spindle lock to stop rotation. Loosen the blade bolt (usually left hand thread) and place the parts in the order removed, e.g. blade bolt outer flange, blade spacer if used. Reinstall blade noting the rotation of the teeth and replace parts in reverse order. After installation check for rotation by carefully turning the blade by hand and replace safety cover to its original position and tighten bolt.

Cant get crank pully bolt to brake lose


Take the starter off and wedge a block of wood or a pry bar against the ring gear teeth on the flywheel. That would hold the crankshaft steady. Are you using a good stout breaker bar to try and loosen the bolt? If you have access to an impact gun, that is what shops often use. Any friends or neighbors with an impact tool? If you can drive the car to a shop, you could have them loosen it for you, then tighten it just enough to get you back home to finish working on it.
Here is a method I have used and it works great, but do it at your own risk, it is not recommended: With the car on the ground, use a 1/2 inch breaker bar and socket on the bolt. The end of the bar needs to be resting on the ground, and situated so that when the starter is bumped over-just a quick bump of the starter-the engine crankshaft turns just a little bit, but the breaker bar will keep the bolt from turning with the crank-it will loosen the bolt. Just one quick bump from the starter and I was able to loosen the pulley bolt on a Chrysler this way. Lots of DIY mechanics have done this, but as I said, not recommended. But if carefully done, and breaker bar is situated in right position-it will loosen the bolt. Post back if you don't understand. Good luck.

I am trying to hange the serpentine belt on my 09 lancer rallyart and it keeps slipping off


Locate the two belts on the left side (passenger side) of your Mitsubishi Lancer. The outer belt is a serpentine belt, operating four pulleys and the inner belt is your alternator belt.

  • 2 Follow the serpentine (outer) belt to the three pulleys lined up vertically near the front of the engine compartment. Locate the middle pulley, which is the tension pulley for the belt.
  • 3 Loosen the bolt on the middle pulley with a socket wrench by turning counter-clockwise. Do not remove the bolt, just turn it a couple of times. Loosen the tensioner bolt on the side of the of the pulley, facing the front of the vehicle.
  • 4 Remove the serpentine belt and then loosen the bolt on the alternator. With the alternator loose, move it forward so that the alternator belt loosens up and then remove belt from the pulleys.
  • 5 Install the new alternator belt by placing it over both inside pulleys. Tighten the tension on the alternator belt by moving the alternator back and keeping tension on it by holding it back with a long screwdriver. While the alternator belt is tight, use a socket wrench to tighten up the bolt on the alternator.
  • 6 Place the serpentine belt back on the pulleys and then use a socket wrench on the bolt on the front of the tension pulley. Once the serpentine belt is tight, tighten up the bolt in the middle of the tension pulley.
  • 7 Start the Mitsubishi Lancer's engine to test the alternator belt and make sure it is working properly. Once you have verified it is working, turn the engine off.

    Diagram on how to fix neutral safty switch for 1991 lincoln towncar


    I have to ask what happened? Did you have the tranny out? Hit a raccoon? Don't matter, i don't have a diagram, although I'm sure you could find one, even on Youtube you might find what I'm going to tell you, most Fords have a hole in the switch for alignment of the neutral, I think it is a 3/16 drill bit will fit the hole, and when you loosen up the 2 bolts, turn the unit till the drill bit falls in back wards, tighten it up, you should be in neutral. If it doesn't have the pin hole, just loosen up the bolts, turn the unit ever so slightly, either way while someone clicks the key, keep it in park, you will find it eventually, it is very sensitive. The neutral safety switch is located on the left side where the shifter goes into the tranny. It has 2 bolts on it, should not have to come off. Hope this helps.

    Bronco wont start 88 ford bronco just replaced tranny and now won't start. i've hooked everything back up but one of the wires to the transfer case bc i broke the plug in. any ideas why it wont start...


    The neutral safety switch is located on the side of the transmission and it is usually attached behind the shifter linkage and it is secured with two small bolts that can be loosened up to allow for adjustment of the neutral safety switch.

    To adjust the neutral safety switch place the transmission into neutral, (block the tires) there is a notch or and indent marker on the housing of the neutral safety switch that should be lined up with a line on the face of the collar that is around the shifter detent shaft, and if they are not in alignment then loosen the two bolts that secure the neutral safety switch and then turn the neutral safety switch until they are aligned and then tighten the securing bolts to the neutral safety switch, and then test the starter. If the starter fails to engage then either the neutral safety switch is faulty, the neutral safety switch has been by-passed all this time and the by-pass (I will usually find things like a paper clip shoved into the vehicles wire connector with electrical tape around it) has fallen out of the wire connector from the vehicle wiring harness, or the battery just went dead. if you have the neutral safety switch from the old transmission still available try using it to test the neutral safety circuit. I have provided you with an image to help assist you adjust the neutral safety switch.

    I'm trying to remove right front caliper to change pads, and can't loosen caliper bolts. (One of them has a rounded head!) How does it come off?


    Vehicle on hard flat surface. Two jack stands under the frame towards the front, front in the air, wheel chocks placed behind the rear wheels, parking brake on.

    Wheels/tires removed, turn the wheels to the right when working on the right side, to the left when working on the left side.

    Don safety glasses, and use a propane torch to heat the area on the brake caliper, where the brake caliper bolt goes into. Use caution as brake fluid is flammable. Keep the flame moving back, and forth, on the brake caliper area for the caliper bolt.

    You'll have to experiment in this task. You won't be able to get this area cherry red, and you DON'T want to! Heat the area, tap on the area with a hammer, then try to remove the bolt. Keep doing this procedure until the bolt starts to move. See below for more detail.

    You are heating cast iron, which expands more rapidly than the steel bolt. Now take a ball peen hammer, use the flat end, and TAP along the area you heated. DON'T beat on it, just medium taps.

    Don leather gloves. Clamp a large pair of curved jaw Vise Grips on that bolt head. Clamp it as tight as you can. Tap the area once more with the hammer, then see if you can get the bolt to turn.

    Viewing TOWARDS the brake caliper from the outside of your truck, the Vise Grips should go DOWN to the Right. The bolts have Right handed threads.
    Turn to the right to tighten, to the left to loosen.
    But you are on the opposite side.

    Remember that the bolt head is on the backside of the caliper, therefore you have to orient the direction you need to turn it, to loosen it.

    Once you remove a bolt, move it to a safe place to cool down. Do not quench it in water. You will anneal the bolt by doing this, thereby softening the bolt. This = No!
    Suggest you use the proper thread tap, and clean the holes of the brake caliper, and the proper thread die to clean the threads of the bolt, before reinstalling.

    Changing a 1991 Mazda Protege Serpentine Belt


    You've got to loosen the mounting bolt first, which is located behind the pulley itself. Rotate the pulley until the large opening allows access to the bolt, then use a socket with a narrow head to turn the bolt, just until it starts to turn freely.
    Then there are two locknuts on the adjuster; one right near the mounting bolt and one underneath towards the middle of the pump. Loosen both of those, and then *finally* you'll be able to turn the adjusting bolt that faces the front end of the car on the end of the adjuster arm. It's a long bolt; just keep turning that thing until the belt loosens enough to come off the pulley.
    Best of luck!
