They need adjustment and lubrication. You can get a book from the library to see adjusting brakes or take it and get it done for a small charge. I would opt for a shop to do it because without your brakes working right, you are endangering yourself and without the right tools you cannot get them perfect.. Remember your front brake does most of the work, like a car. The rear brake is the stabilizer, stops you from flipping but cannot completely stop you.

Ds codemkeeps coming up even though the door is shut


The "dc" error code indicates an unbalanced load is preventing your washer from spinning properly. Try redistributing the load, then press the Start/Pause button. If the load appears well-distributed, you may need to make adjustments to the leveling legs to make sure the washer is properly leveled, removing the clothes and running a spin only cycle to make the necessary adjustments. Once firmly leveled, be sure the plastic leg locks are tightened to prevent them from vibrating loose.

Hi: I have a 1991 F350 diesel IDI dually; I just had work done on the back breaks because the back breaks locked up on it. New breaks, new drums, and new bearings. Now when trying to stop when going...


Hi sounds like your front rotors are warped. Do you feel it on one side or both? Your brake booster may not working properly or doesn't get enough vacuum. That make the brakes drag a little bit and in a long run will make the rotor warpe. Check front callipers if they not seized first , mesure vacuum. If it's ok you have to replace front rotors and pads

I had new pads installed on the front of my 2005 chevy equinox, the rotors were turned and it stops perfectly execpt the front right wheel always squeaks and is geting worse even though I used the 20/30...


I personally never have had one braking issue, in 47 years
of doing brake work,on any vehicles

That said & not to write book here

The brake work & choice of friction material
(brake pads) was not done correctly

Very few shops remove rust from anything
Rotor mounting surfaces,wheel hub surfaces,
calipers,caliper sliding surfaces,pad siding surfaces

Then they use no lube, so pads can move & release

They don't use MFG Specific & quality pads

A proper professional job would go for at least
$300.00 for front or back,just 2 wheels

Rotor machining is critical

I think your OEM Rotors that were machined, most likely
were okey new & not a good grade of Chinese Steel to
be machining

The door handle is coming loose on one side. How can you tighten it down? it looks like you have to take off the front panel to get to the screw to make it tighter. Do you have to unscrew all the screw...


Hello,

You are correct on this style dishwasher the front panel will need to be removed in order to tighten the handle. Remove the screws around the edge of the door once off the panel will lift up and off.

There will be a bigger screw coming in from the back side, loosen and put a little lock tight on the threads and you will never have to take the dishwasher apart again, that trick works for me..

Have a good evening, I work at the link below to.

Reebok Vista belt not working properly


There could be 3 different problems with this machine.
1) loose drive belt (this model has a spring loaded idler that tightens the tension)
2) Bad front drive roller (you wil hear the pulley spinning freely on the front roller if the roller is bad)
3)Last is possibly the walk belt itself. May need to be tightened or replaced.
To try to tighten the walk belt, go to the end of the walk belt and find the 2 adjust allan screws in the end and tighten them 2 revolutions clockwise on both screws.
Hope this helps a little. Tim

Mechanics keep on breaking my lug nuts,Why?


Over tightening. They are probably using an impact wrench to tight the lugs because its the fastest way. Its not the right way though.
Here is what happens. When the nuts are tightened, the studs will stretch. This tension holds the wheels on to the rim. If you over tighten the studs you can damage them and they could fail. The best approach is to use an impact wrench to snug up the nuts. Then go back with a torque wrench and tighten to the manufacturer specifications.(lug nut torque for your vehicle is 110 ft-lbs ) Next time you are having your tires rotated or changed, make sure the mechanic uses a torque wrench and the correct torque.
