Replace lower door seal

Before I attempt this job I am aware that there is tension on the door and I know I will have trouble putting it back on. Any hints or tips on this procedure or a repair manual would be appreciated.
Thanks

Well, job done. I tried using cable ties to hold the hinges down without success, string would have broken immediately. The only way to do it without a specially made tool is to insert screwdrivers in the narrow gaps between the hinge and the frame with the handle held in place by the bottom of the door and the seal that is being replaced. The problem with this is that when the door is fully removed the screwdrivers are likely to slip and the hinges slam shut, disastrous if any body part is in the way. What is needed is another pair of hands to hold both screwdrivers in place. Apart from having to work around your helper( get a thin one if possible) the rest is easy. Fit the seal to the frame first, then position the fixing plates and hod in place with a paper clip in the lower screw hole. Re-attach the door to the hinge fixing the top screws first, remove the paper clips and fit the lower screws. Your helper can now make the tea whilst you re-fit the rest of the door.

I have a Kitchenaid dishwasher KDS18. How do I replace the TANK SEAL at the bottom of the door? Do I take the door off to replace it? Thanx


It's always best to remove a door to replace a seal. Lay the door on a hard flat surface so there isn't any twist in it. Remove the old seal and install the new one.

How do you get power window back in it's track, rear upper section of the window has fallen forward.


If you want to do this you need to remove the inner door panel( and maybe a weather barrier). be aware if you have any power options with switches on the door panel they must be disconnected before you attempt door panel removal.as soon as you remove the door panel(usually two or three screws and a dozen easily breakable plastic clips holding it in place) you will be able to see the window lift mechanism. if the window has not fallen completely off track you will be able to see how it is held by the "lift cradle" carefully without letting the window fall down into the door place the window back into its track"cradle" and loosely tighten the fasteners. and reconnect the window crank or window switch temporarily to slowly lift and lower the window while supporting it with your hand (to be sure it doesn't fall off its track while testing it) check if the window is tracking properly. if if seems to slide up and down appropriately and lands into the window seal appropriately then lower the window to a place where you can snug down the window retainers not too tight so as not to break the glass. and replace the door panel. after all switches or mechanisms are replaced test it again slowly to check for appropriate function and if you are satisfied pat yourself on the back for a job well done. i hope this helps

1996 saturn timing chain tensioner location. want to attempt to tighten rather than replace. it is currently grinding on top bracket


It is under the timing chain cover with the chain. if you go to all that trouble you might as well do the whole job, sprockets, guides, chain, tensioner, water pump.

1999 Honda crv timing belt replacement


1. Remove the 14mm bolt.
2. Remove the spring holding onto the tensioner
3. Remove the tensioner
4. Installation is the reverse.

I install a new tensioner with every timing belt job.

If you have more than 130K miles, I would replace the cam seals. Its extra insurance against future leaks.

Changing water pump


I do not know if already have done it. The water pump in located on the lower left side, and you have to either jack up the car remove the leftside engine mount and both the plastic covers over the timing belt to get access. Obs. drain the water first and just to be safe remove the + cable from the battery.
Be also aware of the grounding cable from the alternator to the firewall if this brake your alternator could break down.Before you can get to the pump you have to get rid of the timing belt.
1)Then you first lower the tension by using the square part of a 1/4 " of a wrench. Put it in the hole and bend hard forward!! then grab the belt and slip it over the wheel so it is free, release the tensioner pressure
2) Then you most probably also have to remove the timing belt tensioner itself.
3)Then carefully remove the bolts that keeps the water pump in place and remove it. Clean the area and check that you new pump have the o-ring around its outlet, use correctly type of packing sement or what ever the dealers says, reassemlbe and the job should be done.
4) Be aware of that the tensioner belt MUST back in same position.
I hope this works for you
