How do I access the screen wash bottle on Honda CRV 2006 diesel


I don't know where the washer bottle is on this model, friend, but the modern trend is to fit them low down with an extended spout especially if it is a large capacity bottle. They are often fitted in the space under the forward part of the front wing, mudguard or fender and following the direction of the filler spout should give a strong clue to the location. Access usually means moving plastic parts out of the way; such as the wing liner and any undertray or parts of an undertray.
Especially in winter when plastic is very difficult to work with it is better to completely remove any plastic parts but be aware some or all of any plastic retainers are likely to break during removal. Better access to the wing liner would be achieved by raising the car taking proper safety precautions and removing the front wheel.

I hope this helps.

Leak from under a Banco sink unit. The leak is coming from the rubber ring that provides a seal betwen the white plastic 'basket' (that fits between the sink and the plastic drain pipe) and the metal sink...


Maybe Banco has an answer. If not, you may be able to improvise a "blade" from some kind of metal stock and clamp it in the jaws of heavy pliers to form a screwdriver of sorts.

I have a obsolete but modern-ish Whirlpool water cooler. The white plastic ring the 5 gallon water bottle sits on is cracked, and chunks are coming off. Whirlpool doesn't stock parts for old model


The collar is only there to keep the bottle at the correct height in relation to the water in the cooler. The principle is that when the vacuum inside the bottle is not being release by the water clearing the opening no more water will run out. To understand what I mean fill up a bottle ( any old bottle) right to the top. Fill up the sink and with you finger over the top of the bottle place the bottle upside down in the water. Take you finger from the hole and it will glug once maybe twice then no more water will run out until you lift the bottle out of the sink water. To stop more running out simply put the neck of the bottle bac in the sink. It is the same with you water cooler bottle. So all you need to do now is to to cover the foam with a piece of vinyle and it will be fixed.

Betsey johnson perfume spray broke


1. Look at the tip of the nozzle to ensure that it is still intact. If there seems to be a perfume buildup within the tip, simply run the tip under hot water and use a pin to pry any gunk loose. Press the nozzle tip gently down on the top of the perfume bottle to reattach.
2. Remove the tip of the nozzle if it will not spray and soak a cotton ball with rubbing alcohol. Apply the alcohol to the interior top of the plastic tube and let it sit for 10 to 15 seconds. Use a pin to slide down the center of the tube to remove any built-up gunk that may exist in the tube. This tube is what feeds the perfume from the bottle, to the tip.
3. Use tweezers to pull the plastic tube upward if it will not connect to the nozzle of the tip properly. The tip should snap onto the plastic tube; however, if it does not then the tube is too low in the bottle.
4. Return to the store, where you bought the perfume, and request a new replacement tip. Craft stores may also carry the replacement tips. The sprayer inside the tip may be off or uneven which will cause the perfume not to spray.
5. Exchange the perfume for a new bottle at the store. Manufacturers, especially if it is a new bottle, will replace the bottle at no charge. Depending on the store, you may be able to exchange the bottle even if it is almost empty.
6. Pry out the inner workings of the perfume bottle and dab the perfume on your skin, instead of spraying.Take the insides of the nozzle out by removing the tip, and use tweezers to remove the inner tube. Around the edge of the perfume bottle is a plastic encasement that will need to come off. Use a pocket or paring knife to loosen the edges around the encasement and pop it off. Under the encasement will be a metal ring that attaches the encasement to the bottle. Using the same method as the encasement, pry the metal ring off the bottle. Purchase a small cork to insert in the bottle to prevent a spill.

One of the grinder broke inside the unit, is this a replaceable part?


If disposal has loose parts inside, you have to replace the disposal.
If disposal still work and doesn't vibrate and loosen pipes under sink, then it's ok.
The don't sell replacement parts for disposals.

I wrote tips for replacing disposals:

When I worked apartment maintenance, we replaced disposal with same brand disposal.
That way we didn't have to change out sink basket or move pipes around under the sink.
How to: Disconnect 2 nuts on p-trap and trap falls loose.
Rotate steel connector disk that holds disposal to sink basket, and disposal comes off.
Before installing new disposal.
Attach electric wire to new disposal.
Attach dishwasher tube to new disposal. Knock out plug inside dishwasher opening.
Push new disposal up into place, and attach to old sink basket.
Use new connector washer.
Attachment ring catches at three points, all three have to connect.
Re-assemble tubular pipe.

If this is your home, you want new sink basket that comes with new disposal because it looks shiny and new.
Buy a tub of plumbers putty also.
Remove old sink basket and clean sink opening.
Put finger-size roll of plumbers putty around sink opening, and then push new strainer basket into plumbers putty.
Tighten basket from below, wipe away excess putty around sink opening.
Install new disposal as described above.

Tips for tubular pipes:
When taking apart tubular pipes, start at p-trap and take apart as few pieces as needed to do job.
On image above, loosen both upper and lower nuts, trap falls loose, and then work on disposal.
Any tubular drain pipe that gets moved while working under sink needs to be disassembled, cleaned and re-assembled.
Metal pipes have rubber washer >> always use new rubber washers.
Plastic pipes have plastic washers > plastic washers can be cleaned and re-used.
Plastic washers have flat side that goes toward nut, tapered side away from nut.

When reassembling tubular pipe, we use rectorseal on washers and joints.
Slap a good amount on washer just before pushing washer in place and attaching nut.
Rectorseal will ensure tubular drain pipes won't leak.

Hello. You will find that the bottle will come out once you remove the nut under the surface of the sink.
You have to get into the cabinet to do this. And, a faucet wrench, available at any hardware store will assist you greatly. Regards, joe

The plastic handles that dispense the water are broken


Where can I buy the spigets for a Sunbeam water cooler. I need one for hot and one for cold water. These handles are not strong enough plastic to last the lifetime of the unit. They should be made from metal. If the taps on our kitchen sink was made from plastic you can imagine how long they would last.

Cement sink drain repair


Yes you can still get those basket strainers and you can replumb with plastic pipe. Make sure when you go to the store to get the extra long strainers made for thick sinks, the fitting on the bottom should be made to accept plastic pipe. You may also need a "mission band" or "fernco coupling" to attach the plastic to metal pipe after replacing everything under the sink.

1999 silverado heater hose broke off in the engine compartment


Unfortunatly the short answer is no you cant, Gm and others started making heater cores and radiators out of plastic. The result has been that after the plastic gets hot and cools a few hundred times it gets brittle, hence your problem. Unless you are very good mechanically I would advise letting a pro do it for you.
