Question about Danco 89448A Universal Toilet Tank Lever, Chrome with White Porcelain Handl

1 Answer

The handle base has a small tab that the handle fits into. Since the fitting is square it will not trip without pulling away from the tab unless I am missing something. How do I solve this issue?

Not sure I understand your problem; your handle may be incorrectly installed.

    I have the same issue. The part a fits in a very small area into part c not giving enough room for the part a to spin and trip the flusher.

Take hose off to clean

Pull out handle as usual.
Release hose from wand and handle by pressing the pair of release clips on the handle just above where the hose enters. I have to press these clips quite hard and pull quite a bit to get the hose to come free. All the above is as you would normally use the hose.
Lay hose down to rear of machine. Just between the bottom of the hose and the machine body is a small plastic tab: pull this a little away from the machine body.
Slide bottom end of hose upwards and out of the machine.

The hose can be dismantled from the plastic fittings at each end but has not been designed for the user to do so: the hose and fittings are bought as an assembly (not expensive at about GBP15).

I have the pet lovers upright eureka boss. When I bought it it had been returned and the manual was gone. I need one for myself /I am trying to figure out how to get to the belt under the top

The Boss SmartVac Pet Lover's vacuum manual is available near the bottom on the left of the product page here: . A quick start guide is also available. The direct link to the manual is .

To access the belt, lower the handle to the floor and then turn the vacuum over. You need to remove 3 screws to remove the bottom plate. The screws are in the front corners (at the brush roll) and just inside one of the back wheels (on the left if looking in front of the brush roll). See figure 3 of the manual (page 4 or page 6 of the pdf). Then the plate should lift off (you pull the back side up and then pull the entire base forward). Remove the brush roll and the belt. Lift the side without the belt first. Then slide the new belt onto the motor shaft and the brush roll. Insert the left side of the brush roll into the vacuum then insert the right side making sure that the end cap fits into the base. Turn the brush roll a couple of turns to center the belt on the unit. Then line up tabs on the base with the vacuum and rotate the base into position. Reinstall the screws and turn the vacuum right side up. Then lift the handle before vacuuming unless you are going to vacuum under some furniture.

I hope this helps.

No hot water in shower but have hot water in sink

Is your shower valve a single handle. If so I would reccomend you change cartridge. To do this shut off water to valve or house. Remove center cover on valve handle,most of these are just friction fit so gently pry off with knife point or small screwdriver. Remove handle by pulling straight out,then remove chrome cover that fits around outside of valve. Ther is a small copper retaing clip that holds valve in place. It should have a small hole in tab that is on top of valve. Grasp this with pliers and pull up to remove. Then remove cartridge by pulling on cartridge stem. If it's doesn't come out you can get a moen cartridge puller at hardware store. Remove old cartridge,install new one and reinstall retaing clip. Reinstall chrome cover and handle.Turn water back on and try shower valve to see that cold is on the right side. If it's not remove handle and turn center stem 180 degrees.This will change cold side to right. Put handle back on with cover and you sould be done. Hope this helps. Thanks

Describe how to change the passenger mirror on a 2007 Toyota Sien

Hi, First remove the door panel. (The connector for the mirror is behind the panel just to the left of the door handle.) The arm rest cover pops off by gently prying upward at the corners near the door panel and along the outer edge of the arm rest. Then remove the 2 screws. Remove the screw that holds the door handle bezel on. Remove the little plastic plug to the left of the door handle as well. This reveals yet another screw to remove. Now you can gently pull the door panel away from the door. The little plastic clips will pop out of the door. If they come away from the door panel they easily fit back in place in the metal retainers built into the door panel. You can now disconnect the connector and remove the 3 10mm mirror bolts.
With respect to the door handle bezel on the inside of the door, to remove it you must pull/slide the bezel away from the door hinge. It should move an 1/8 to 1/4 inch. There is a little tab that hooks inside the door handle mechanism and two small holes, top and bottom, that slip over little pegs on the mechanism. I broke this tab while removing the bezel on my car. This was the most difficult part, on my car, to remove.
Take care

Replacing headlight

Composite Headlights
Most of the vehicles covered by this manual are equipped with composite headlight assemblies. Due to space constraints, no access may be provided to withdraw the bulbs, so the replacement usually requires removal of the composite assembly.

CAUTION The composite headlight assemblies use Halogen bulbs which contain a gas under pressure. Improper handling of the bulb could cause it to shatter into flying glass fragments. To help avoid personal injury, follow the precautions closely.

Exploded view of the composite headlight mounting—1995-97 model shown

Whenever handling a Halogen bulb, ALWAYS follow these precautions:
  • Turn the headlight switch OFF and allow the bulb to cool before changing it. Leave the switch OFF until the change is complete.
  • ALWAYS wear eye protection when changing a halogen bulb.
  • Handle the bulb only by its base. Avoid touching the glass.
  • DO NOT drop or scratch the bulb.
  • Keep dirt and moisture off the bulb.
  • Place the used bulb in the new bulb's carton and dispose of it properly.
  1. Raise the hood and locate the bulb mounting location at the rear of the composite headlamp body.
  2. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  3. If necessary for access, remove the splash shield or side marker lamp(s).
  4. On some models it may be necessary to remove the side marker lamp.

  1. If there is enough room to access the plastic base, press in and turn the base 1/4 turn counterclockwise and remove from the metal retaining ring by gently pulling back and away from the headlight. Remove the electrical connector from the bulb by raising the lock tab and pulling the connector down and away from the bulb's plastic base.
  2. If you can't access the bulb from the engine compartment, unfasten the thumb screws, and/or other retainers, then pull the composite headlight assembly forward slightly and disengage the wiring connector. Press in and turn the base 1/4 turn counterclockwise and remove the bulb from the metal retaining ring by gently pulling back and away from the headlight.
... pull the headlight assembly away from the vehicle for access to the bulb and connector

... turn the bulb and remove it from the headlight assembly

To install:
  1. Attach the electrical connector on the new bulb's plastic base making sure that the lock tab is in place.
  2. Install the bulb by inserting the smallest tab located on top of the plastic base into the corresponding notch in the metal retaining ring. Turn clockwise 1/4 turn until it stops. The small plastic tab should be at the top of the metal ring.
  3. Install the composite headlight assembly, then secure with the retainers.
  4. Connect the negative battery cable, then check for proper headlight operation.

How to remove the wiper arm to remove cowl

Look carefully at the base of the wiper blace. At the base of the arm - where it fits onto the shaft - you will see a small moveable tab. Pull it out - it fits into a groove on the shaft and prevents it from coming off. It may take some effort to move it because of the weathering. It also will take some patience to wiggle the arm off the shaft and may take some prying. Note that the shaft is a spline and when you put it back on the arm will need to be in the correct position or the blade will be in the wrong place.

Where are the assembly directions? how does the handle fit on? which way does the round plate attach? down or up What are the screws for? what are the extra parts for??

Without any mapped directions, I studied the parts for awhile, then decided first to remove the two plugs from the two side prongs, and then push the big square handle down over those protrusions. Guessing, I used the long square wrench to plug one of the the two packaged square-holeplugs deep inside one of the handle holes and tighten with such. On the other handle hole I screwed in the short 'stick' handle (save the other small square plug). I figured if you unscrew the rounded cap screw from the main shaft, then flip the backer plate upside down, it will fit over the shaft. To assist in positioning the backer plate over the shaft, there is a small black push-in- realease button on the top of the polisher that allows you to put the plate SQUARELY and securely over the shaft, then release it to allow free motion. Then replace that big cap screw and tighten it using the special "spanner" tool (as it is called in the 'parts-to-order' page). Finally simply tie the wool bonnet around and knot together the stringpulls. Alternately, remove that backerplate (in reverse steps as stated) and instead attach the 'velcro' backerplate by easily screwing that onto the shaft instead of the bigger cap screw that held on that other backplate. Note: there is a 'speed setting' ( adjust it to 1 "low" ) before plugging in the electric and turn the switch on.

My DSC-W1 camera's both tabs broken. I was looking for a solution when I saw this thread.
I decided to try to fix myself. Here is what I did

Tools needed:
> small nail file
> supper glue
> small piece of Alum Approx 1mm thick
> Sissor

Step1: File the tab base down about 1mm when you start to see the 'L' shape.
Step 2: Use sissor to cut the Alum sheet into Approx 3mm x 3mm square. Make sure it is flat. Position it on the base to try out the fit
Step 3: Apply supper glue to the tab base, glue on the square.
Step 4: Repeat on the second broken tab
You are done!
