Plastic retainer My problem is...HOW to carefully pry it off? It doesn't budge. It's got a tab on it, but it doesn't matter if I lift it or push it, it doesn't help. I've tried every tool in the office, also. The closest Brother service center is 30 miles away, and we can't go five minutes without this fax machine. Any help you can give me would be greatly appreciated. Mary Zeiner

It's difficult to describe how to do it, except use a tiny instrument size screwdriver. The tab mates with a corresponding square hole.

How do I replace a headlight in a chevy neon

Unscrew the round retaining ring on the back of the light bulb which is out. Slide that back down the wire and leave it there. Take hold of the back of the bulb and turn it to the left. If it doesn't budge try turning it the other direction. Remember which direction it came off. Pull the light bulb straight out. Next take a screwdriver or if you have strong fingernails, pry the plastic tab off the end closest to the wire, it should be obvious which side the tab is on. With the tab lifted pull the bulb base off of the connecting wire. When installing the new light bulb try your best not to touch the glass; oils from hands decrease the lightbulb life. You can use a rag or napkin to hold the bulb. Slide it onto the connecter the same way so the tab goes over the bump. Carefully line up the bulb to the light socket and insert the same as you took it out. When you feel it in place push a little as you turn it it so you can feel the bulb flush with the contact surface. Turn till it's in place. Replace the rubber boot if there was one and screw the retaining ring back into place. Remember to have patience, it may take a little while but you can do this. Best of luck.

Remove icemaker

Mine does that. Ice is frozen to the drive shaft. Try using a long thin flat blade screwdriver under the ice bucket to try and lightly pry the bucket off. If it won't still budge then try removing all the ice you can and then running a hair dryer pointed at the bottom of the ice bucket where the metal part is. This will help melt the ice build up in there. 2nd option is pouring hot water in the bucket. This is all going to make a huge mess on the floor so get some towels. Eventually it will lift off while pushing the button in. The actual latches are plastic and not very long. It's the ice that's keeping it from lifting off.

How to remove the interior panel on the rear door nissan tiida hatchback?

There should be at least one screw holding the door handle trim piece. And check for other screws, like on the door pull or armrest, may be hidden behind small rectangular or square caps or plugs that are pried off to reveal the screws. The bottom and up the sides of panel should be held by plastic pins that push in to secure. Use a putty knife or screwdriver under the panel at bottom to pry the pins out. Work carefully all around trying not to break any of the plastic retainers (although they can be replaced if broken. When all free of the plastic retainers, pull panel out from bottom and lift up and away from the window channel. Unplug any electrical connections, and panel should be free.

Wipper arms removal

There are two main styles. One style has a nut covered by a piece of plastic at the pivot point, the other style is a metal retainer under the wiper arm.
The style with the nut is most common. remove the plastic cover by prying it up at the pivot area, remove the nut underneath, usually 13,14 or 15 mm. then life the wiper off of the glass and wiggle off of the shaft.
The retainer style you need to lift the wiper off of the glass and look for a small metal tab near the point where the wiper pivots to lift it off of the glass. then pry the tab gently outward. This releases the arm from the shaft. Just wiggle it free.

How do I change out the power supply unit in a 6200 Apple

1. Unplug everything.2. On the back of the computer, locate the two latches holding the I/O cover trim plate (at the top of the plate), push them downward and swing the plate out from the top to remove.3. Remove the two screws from the upper corners of the I/O plate. Locate the wire handle placed a little to the right of the center of the plate. Unhook and pull to remove the logic board assembly from the computer. Note: the logic board is easily damaged by static electricity. Do not touch it unless you are wearing an antistatic wrist band connected to the I/O plate. Set it aside on a static-safe surface, or stand it on edge where it won't get knocked over.4. Remove the two screws on the upper back trim (one above and to the right of the video connector; the other to the right of the serial number label). Pull out at the top of this plastic piece and swing it away from the computer (similar to the piece removed in step 1).Note: all screws removed up to this point are identical.5. Look under the overhang at the front of the computer. You will see two slots with tabs inside them. Use a large flat-blade screwdriver and carefully pry upward on these tabs while pulling outward on the bottom of the front piece (you want to lift the tabs just enough to unhook them from the chassis). When you have these disengaged, the front lifts away from the computer.6. Lift the front of the top plastic cover slightly (about 3/32") in the middle and push it forward about 5/8" to unhook it from the top metal cover and remove it.7. Push forward on the sides of the computer about 5/8" to slide them out of their retaining slots and remove them.8. Remove the two screws from the back of the top metal cover, and push it forward to disengage its hooks from the retaining tabs on the sides. You may have to use the flat-blade screwdrivers on the back of the cover to pry it forward enough to get it moving. Do not pull it away from the computer yet; there's a cable attached to it.9. Reach underneath the cover near the front over the floppy drive and unhook the wire cable retainer (squeeze it in from the sides to drop it down from the retainer hooks, then spread it to pull the ends out of the slots). Now you can separate the top from the computer.10. At the front of the power supply, lift the main power cable connector (you may have to squeeze the two retaining tabs on the sides of the connector), grasp the power supply half of the connector so as to squeeze and disengage the connector latch hook, and carefully pull the connector apart. Unplug the red fan connector. Use the flat-blade screwdriver to gently pry up on the lip of the remaining connector on the printed circuit board (use the opposite metal side of the power supply as the fulcrum) and work the connector out of its shell, being careful not to apply too much force and break the connector. Do not yank on the wires! This cable is irreplaceable.11. Remove the two fan screws. Note that they are not identical. Pull out the metal bracket between the fan and the CD drive holder.12. Lift the video card/fan bracket, starting from the video card end (you may want to disconnect the video card cables) and set it aside.13. At the back end of the power supply, next to where the fan was, there is a screw going into the side. Remove it. Note that it is somewhat longer than the screws removed in the first five steps.14. At the front of the power supply, down at the bottom (outside the supply frame), there is one more screw. Remove it (you will probably want to magnetize your screwdriver for this one).15. With the back of the computer towards you, swing the front of the power supply slightly to the right and remove.
Assembly is pretty much the reverse of the above, except that it is easier to start the fan/video bracket from the power supply end; otherwise it can be difficult to hook the side tab around the outside of the chassis (there is a raised edge on the back end of the side; the tab goes just in front of that).

How do you remove the rear speakers from a 2004 chevy impala?

Remove the rear seat. On later models remove the rear upper quarter panel by pulling down & out to disengage the retainer clips, then sliding the roof leg out from under the trim panel over the door. Detach the rear seat belts through the slot in the rear parcel shelf. Pry up the plastic clips securing the rear parcel shelf. Then lift up & out to remove it from the vehicle. Remove the speaker retaining screws or tabs. If the speaker seal has bonded with the metal shelf, hold the tabs & pry the housing away from the metal. Disconnect the electical connector & remove the speaker. Install in reverse order. Good luck!

Whirlpool washer problem with door

I believe you are talking about the lid switch. To replace follow these steps: 1. UNPLUG the machine first. 2. Remove the console. You will have one of two types of consoles with two separate methods of removal. a. The first type is a matter of removing the two end caps of the console by lifting up on the end cap from back behind the console and pulling towards you. The cap should just pop off. There will be a groove present on the top rear that you can gently pry with a screwdriver if you can't remove by hand. You will need to remove the philips screw under the end caps and the console will lift up. Be careful not to break the plastic hinges that hold the console in place. You can lift it up and lay it back over the rear panel in a resting position. b. The second type of console (usually found on some of the newer models) has a retaining clip under each end cap at the front corners. You will need to carefully slide a putty knife between the end cap and top of the machine from the front. Push in to release the retaining clip and lift up. This may be a little tricky trying to get both ends to release together. The console lifts up in the same manner as described before. Again, be careful not to break the plastic hinges that hold the console on. 3. You will find two brass colored clips under the console. Place a flat blade screwdriver in the clip groove on the washer top and push away from you. This will release the retaining clip that holds the case to the back of the machine. Remember how they came off, because you will need to put them back in. 4. Disconnect the lid switch plug from the connector. This is a white plug that is mounted physically to the washer top casing. 5. Lift the lid and place one hand under the front rim of the casing and pull up from the rear towards you. The entire casing should lift off the frame. 6. The lid switch is located on the right side of the machine in most washers. Some are located in the back on the left hand side. In either case they are fairly simple to remove. There should be a couple of mounting screws and a ground wire to remove first. Then the switch (with harness) should come off. You will need to carefully remove the connector from the casing by using a small screwdriver to release the tabs holding it in. 7. The new switch will install using the reverse order of the steps I just mentioned. 8. Placing the case back on the frame can be tricky. Lift the lid again and place one hand under the front rim of the casing. Looking down through the lid, place the front of the casing UNDER the frame first and slowly lower the rest to the back. There are two cleats on the frame that must line up with two holes in the casing. Once the casing lines back up on the frame, set it down all the way and pull the back up to meet the casing so you can place the brass retaining clips back in. Place the clips in the groove on the back first, then push down until they snap back into the hole on the washer casing top. You may have to use a little effort to get them back in. 9. Reinstall the console. I know this seems like a lot, but it should help you replace the switch. Getting the machine case to line back up is the hardest part of the procedure, but you can do it if you take your time. Let me know if you have any further questions.
