Hard Drive Plugs and Wires

For a friend that has come across the E-Machine needs assistance in where the 3 unattached plug wires belong. He need's to know the exact location where they should be placed. Can you help with a diagram of the inside board, (blueprint if you would) this would probably be the best bet. He is very smart when it comes to refurbishing such equiptment, only thing missing is the simple whereabouts as to their placement. Any info. I can pass along would be greatful. Thank-You for your time.....

Listen, you can only plug the power supply into the devices you have. ( one HD equals one hookup, one floppy, etc.) Unless you have a device to hookup to EACH plug, don't worry about the extra plugs. I suggest if you don't know this to stay out ouf the inside of your PC...

I'm no expert but power supplies have connectors for a typical number of peripherals, some of which you may not need. Extra four wire connectors are normal. As long as all of your drives and devices are connected to the power supply, don't worry about extra unneeded connectors. They all get the same voltages (it goes by wire color).

How do i reconnect the wires on the high/low and forward/reverse on a 12 volt quadbike

I don't have the diagram. But green wires are always ground. The two yellow wires, if it goes into a plug, plug it in. Most plugs are what I call, iddiot proof. Not meaning you are one. But the plugs will not go to another plug. If you have to put a lot of force to get them to go together. They don't belong together. Just remember that some plugs don't go to anything. They make these harnesses to fit multiple vehicles..

I have a friend who owns a bmw 323i that is a 2000 and it is skipping and he like to know what could cause this problem to make his car act like this..

I would start by giving the car a tune up. New spark plugs, spark plug wires, fuel filter, and air filter. Usually a car skipping is caused by needing new spark plug wires and spark plugs.

How do you replace glow plugs on 1999 peugeot expert please

You will need a decent 13mm spanner and 3/8 drive socket for the plugs and a 8mm spanner for the wires, remove the airfilter and pipes to get clearance, you can leave the battery in but ingition off. Unbolt the wire across the 4 plugs, note where the power in cable doubles up on one plug. Using a combination of spanner and socket change the plugs one at a time, they can be tight (normal thread, undo anti-clockwise) I reccomend genuine peugeot plugs or at worst Bosch fast start ones.

I DONT KNOW WHERE Tto pug in the power

Power Led?
hard drive Led wires?
If you are building a machine these areusually pluged directly into the motherboard.
the plugs are usually only compatible to their special sockets on the board. all you need to do is to examine the plug ends and look for sockets withsimilar shape and size as the plug.

Need to know how to change plugs and wires on a 98 pontiac firebird (am a female gentleman be easy lol)

You will need a 5/8 sparkplug socket for a 3/8 drive ratchet
A 3/8 drive extension bar
A 3/8 drive ratchet
Pull wire off of spark plug, slide socket over plug, turn counter clockwise until plug comes out. Some might come out hard, and some are a son of gun to get at. To install, it's just reverse, but don't really crank down on them when you tighten them. At the same time, you can replace the wire on each plug you take out. Do one at a time, that way you won't screw up the firing order. Good luck.
