Question about Freeplay Energy S360 AM/FM/SW/DAB Radio

1 Answer

Whilst winding the handle of my S360 before use, the drive band either came off its seating or broke. I can't see which. The manual says DO NOT OPEN CASING but, if I'd like to fix it if can be fixed. It was working perfectly before this mishap. What recommendations do you have for safely avoiding spring lacerations?

Hello,

there is no big deal disassembling the radio.

Look for white card board or any white large paper.

Disassemble the radio on the white paper, so that you can see any screw or anything that drops from the radio.

My recommendations would be that you should remove all the screws carefully. Make sure all screws are removed before attempting to take the radio apart. Also, some screw might hiding under the sticker. So make sure all stickers that may be found on the radio are removed.

In summary, handle with care.... As I stated above, there is no big deal taking the radio apart.

Please let me know if you have any precise question concerning this issue.

Regards.

Trunk release clicks, but won't release


Something broke on the lock mechanism. In order to open the trunk, you will have to remove the rear seats and try to access the trunk area. Once you are in the trunk, you should be able to manually open the lock and investigate what broke.

Replacing starter pull cord on 77 20hp mercury


Remove the starter housing from the top of the motor and see if the spring broke or back wound it's self when the rope broke. If all is well remove the rest of the rope from the spool by feeding it back thru the guide hole the handle rests on. Wind it out and find a hole drilled thru the spool and put a punch thru it to lock the spool in place against the spring pressure. Remove the old cord. If it has a steel hook glued to the anchor end you will need a real mercury part. If it has a knot. your in luck.

Take your new cord and burn one end and roll the cord to a point while it is still molten. Tie your knot and heat it till it is cooked so it won't untie itself. Feed the pointy end thru the spool and out the front of the housing. Tie a knot it it where the handle would go. Gently feed the rope on to the spool when you remove the punch.

You will have more rope than the spring could wind. so untie the end knot and feed it back to the spool and put the cord in the notch of the spool so it won't rub on the housing and wind a few more turns into the spring .

When it has enough pressure to completely wind the cord up. put the punch back in the lock hole and feed the cord out the hole thru the handle and knot it, then cook that knot as well.

Xterra seats stuck


If you look under the seat there is a cable that connects to the grab handle and runs from the left to the right of the seat adjusters, if cable falls then only one side adjuster will release and u will not be able to move seat, usually up can reinstall the cable and it's good to go, if it broke u will have to replace it.. generally u can repair it without removing the seat.

My 2001 AUDI TT Quattro Roadster Wind Deflector


Hi, it is the drive band for the deflector. There is a single motor behind the driver, this drive the two screws via a band. It i shard to see but when the roof is in the down position remove the trim and you can see both screws which raise the glass. The glass is seated within single metal bracket, if you feel follow the top of the screws you will find the band.

I had the same problem the glass would only raise on the drivers side then stop with acracking sound, which was the trim luckily, on inspection I found the drive band had worn away, so the motor ws only driving one side.

I hope this helps
