Broken latch on hinged back

Black-plastic slider, abt 1/8" x 21/2" on one side showing thru small lock window on left-side (back view), and is attached to spring, has small estruding latch that locks the back closed. I can replace it. It must be only a $0.20 worth of material and manufacturing. Repair shop wants $180.00 to replace it. Where to obtain such a vital but small piece of plastic?

Try calling Canon's parts department at 1-732-521-7230 and see if they still have the part in stock. The part number is CF1-3129-000 and should cost less that $2.00 I think.

How do I replace 3rd brake light on 2009 cls550

this is a simple 15-20 min job with minimal tools needed , the list

1 medium flat head screwdriver or pocket knife
1 T25 torx head driver/start driver
glass cleaner and paper towels
1 new 3rd brake light ( a given) w211 03-05 part number A211820 15 56

Just pop out the 9 black plasitc caps with the screwdriver and remove . then remove the cap in each side hinge ,it is easier if you pop off the small latch on the trunk hinge plasic covers as well. Take out the 6 star screws holding on the hard plastic trunk cover over the latch. the carpet piece now just pulls down. you do need to pull it towards the front of the car due to the handles on the inside not really an issue it just slips down , then disconnect the button and then remove.the small light I just push it thru and then pulled it back thru carefully its more difficult to disconnect. Now the 3rd brake light has 2 plastic tabs the stick out. you need to push these to the outward you can see how they hold on then carefully remove the back black LED part . you will need to wiggle it and then slide it to the Left side and drop out the Right end first. Then disconnect on Left side. took about 15 mins-20 mins first time.
The part comes complete with new a Red light cover. It also seems to have a better looking gasket than the one that came on it. The hardest part is removing the old lens cover. I used a screw driver and pressed in the soft metal tabs on the front side you can see, then just used my finger on the back side of the tab to let it slip outward working from one end to the next. keep you new lens oriented in the right direction when putting the new one one. You do not bend any tabs on the new one. make sure you clean the surface real well , so It can adhere and create a water tight seal. slip the plug in and then put the LED portion on sliding it in on the Left side fist. then flipping up over the grey tabs then make sure you pull the black tabs back to the center I pushed in on the light from the outside to help keep a tight fit. Works great. you can only check it if you turn the ignition on like your going to start the car.

How do I change cabin air filter in 2006 m35? video or pics?

First, you need to remove the glove box: Open the glove box. There are three hinge points at the bottom of the box (left, center and right). There are "tabs" on the box that slide into these "holders". Gently pull up and out on the left side of the glove box. The tab should pop out. Repeat for the center point. This should allow the left side stop pin to clear the dash slot. Repeat for the right side. You should now be able to turn the box, pull it from the dash and let it hang from the retaining cord on the right side. Note the hinge slots and tabs for reference for re-installation later. Second, remove the black access door behind the glove box: This is an "L" shaped cover with three hinge points at the bottom and three tabs at the top. Gently push back on the tabs at the top to un-lock, rotate down on the hinge points and pull out. Behind this you will see a white plastic door which covers and holds the filter in place. Third, remove white access door as follows or you will break the retaining tabs off! On the right side is a locking tab, gently press in and pull the right side of the tab toward you to unlock the tab BUT STOP AS SOON AS THE TAB UNLOCKS THE DOOR AND OPENS ABOUT ½ " or the tabs on the left side will break off, they are not hinged! Next, slide the door to the right to clear the tabs on the left side and remove. Note the position and orientation of the filter inside. Remove the old filter. Fourth, install the new filter: Make sure the orientation and air flow direction are as marked and match previous filter. Mine was pointing "up", with the rigid side plate facing out. The new filter will be sitting on top of the fan, when the white door is re-installed, it has "fingers" that lift the filter into the proper location, but you may find it easier to lift the filter up with one hand and slide the door back into position with the other hand. That said, lift the filter, slide the tabs on the left side of the door back into there slots. Push the door back into original position and latch the right side locking tab. Make sure the door is sealed and back to original position and latch tab on the right is locked. Now, reverse the previous steps to complete the task. Re-install the black access door cover. Lift up the glove box and turn to install right side stop pin into dash slot position, rotate left side into position and center box in dash opening. You will have to move the box up/down, in/out a bit to "feel" the hinge tabs properly engage the hinge slots. Once the tabs are in the slots you can push down on each side and it will pop back in place. (If you have difficulty, you may want to remove the under dash cover below the glove box. There are three tabs in the front that slide into three slots and one tab and slot in the rear. This can be removed by pulling down on the front of the panel at each side and the middle, then slide it forward out of the rear slot. Disconnect the light if required by pushing the latch on the plug and pulling it off. Feel around the hinge locations to guide the parts together).

Broken Plastic latch

You did not mention which latch but I am familiar with the thermal head latch breaking on these models. It is a somewhat common failure. If the latch looks like this:

Battery door latch broken

Unfortunately HP will not sell you a camera battery door. If you can find another camera that is broken with a good battery door you may have a chance.

To repair/transfer the new battery door, you will have to use a small jewerly store screw driver that you can buy at the dollar store and use it to push the door hinge bar to one side of the camera.

Then, pull the door hinge out but be careful not to lose the tiny spring that is installed in between the hinges. ( Make sure that you know and understand how to put it back the same way.) You can then pull the battery door from the camera.

Do the same thing to good camera. Practice on the broken camera first. The second time it should go easier for you. When you install the new battery door, push the hinge bar in all the way to one side of the camera. Hold the door to give you the proper alignment and then use the small screw driver to pry the hindge bar from the one side to make sure that it is equally in each of the black hinge connectors.

This worked for me. I was fortunate enough to find someone who had a broken HP MZ67 digital camera that had a "good" battery door. It took me about 30 minutes to complete the job. I hope this will help you. You can email me if you need more advice. I am a computer tech.

Brother 8820d MFC auto doc feeder does not work...

You need a new hinge so the cover will sit down properly, or paper will jam anyway, but it sounds like there is still a scrap of paper on one of the sensors inside the ADF, you need to look with a flashlight down thru where the paper goes and also look up thru the slot with the ADF lifted.

Zanussi ZDC67550 Dryer, door swing change?

just reversed the doors in 15-20 mins. It worked for me. You do need to be a competent DIYer to do this.
If in doubt, do now't. Get in an engineer

Disconnect from mains (obviously)
Remove top using 7mm nut driver/spanner
Remove 2 cross-head screws holding the door - Door will come away from dryer.
Remove 2 cross-head screws holding the white top and bottom blanking plates
pull out the switch blanking plate
Locate the PINK wires connecting the switch/latch mechanism inside the dryer at the top. This will be taped to a blue wire.
Unscrew the 2 smaller cross-head screws holding the latch/switch assembly whilst holding the pink wire to stop the mechanism dropping inside the dryer.
Pull up the latch mechanism and unravel the black tape holding it to the blue wire.
Drop the latch assembly down the lefthand side of the dryer and refit using the 2 small cross-head screws.
Retape to the blue wier and feed the PINK wires through the plastic retainers.
Fit the white blanking plates to the RIGHT handside of the door opening.
Swap the hinges and the switch latch on the door (don't lose the spring !!!, refitting the hinge blanking plates(ease these out with a small flathead screwdriver covered witha bit of insulating tape to avoid damage.)
Fit the door using the 2 cross-head screws you have left
Refit the top.

Connect to the mains and switch on to the sound of £80 you have just saved yourself !!

Nintendo DS Lite top screen broke on one side

The only way you can repair this properly is to replace the casing with a new one... the hinge is a common problem and over 90% of my customers on the DS and DS Lite need a new case due to broken hinges. Once the plastic bit has broken then it will only get worse. The small bit that you say fell out was the actual hinge itself (a small black part with a silver end that twists and locks your console into place when open). Hope that helps!
