A ratchet wrench with the correct socket size. It should not be at all complicated to re-tighten the bolts.

Hi my 1999 expedition is rattling when in reverse or at a stop light.Wish I knew what it was.

Hello, Have someone check the metal shields around the exhaust pipes and Catalytic converters. What usually happens is the shields rust off their spotwelds or pieces of gravel get kicked up on them and dance across the surface.

Check the driveshaft "U"-joints. When in reverse, the joints have Torque in the opposite direction than normal. If there is wear or slop in the joint, the part will rattle when the driveshaft turns.

Last would be loose or broken motor or transmission mounts. The engine is lifting off the mounts and rattling.

I hope it is only the shields as a muffler shop can reattach them and eliminate your noise.

I have a Whirlpool side by side with an ice dispenser. The little door that closes on the outside opening of the ice dispenser has come loose from its bracket. I cannot get to it to reattach it, or even...

if it has become loose, the pin that holds the disp door came be put back into place. if the plastic tab that holds the pin into place broke, you will need to have a kit installed that has a metal bracket. that should be done by a tech. hope this helps.

Craftsman 6.5 tiller model 486.252444

Not sure about this tiller but some others just need oil in the crankcase - tillers tend to lose oil because of the harsh conditions they work under. If you hear squeaking down their it might be a good idea to check it out.
