How do I replace the hood of my 2000 Pontiac Bonneville? I already have the parts

Should just have 2 bolts on each side where the hood attaches to the hinges and a wire if you have an under hood light.

The hood on my 2005 toyota sienna is badly unaligned, how can I align it back

Mostly the catch and the hinges and buffers are all adjustable and assuming nothing is damaged realigning is mostly an intuitive process though getting it wrong can soon scratch or chip the paintwork.
Previous experience pays dividends.

My kitchen aid stand mixer startnig making noise and wobbling. I noticed that the pin attaching the top to the base has been pushed out halfway and I can't push it back. Any solutions?

Remove the bowl, turn it upside down on a towel, look up inside the pedestal. Right in the middle where the hinge pin goes through there is a screw, unscrew it a little, push the hinge pin back to where it belongs and then tighten the screw up tight. Turn mixer up the right way, raise head up, fit bowl & flat paddle. Lower head & turn machine on low, listen for paddle tinging on bowl, if it is touching turn off and raise the head. Look into hinge area from the front, that screw is the head height adjustment. Clockwise to lower paddle in bowl, anti clockwise to raise. You want to lower it until you hear the paddle tinging on the bowl & then raise it enough to clear without tinging. You don't wind the screw in & out huge amounts, 1/4 to 1/2 a turn at a time is plenty.

I need to remove the grill from 98 mazda 626 so I can open the hood

You can't take the grill off because you have to open the hood to get the grill off.Here is a diagram of the latch and cable routing you will have to try to get to the cable from under the car and pull it to open it or use a long screwdriver to unla


See Figures 1, 2 and 3

Fig. Fig. 1: Exploded view of a typical hood mounting

  1. Open the hood and support it securely. Mark the hinge location on the hood. If so equipped, disconnect the windshield washer hose from its retaining clamp.

Fig. Fig. 2: Matchmark the position of the hood before removing the retaining bolts

0900c15280261694.jpg enlarge_icon.gifenlarge_tooltip.gif

Fig. Fig. 3: Have an assistant secure the hood, then remove the retaining bolts

  1. Have an assistant hold the hood in the up position. Remove the hood support and remove the hinge-to-hood bolts.
  2. Remove the hood from the vehicle.

To install:
  1. Position the hood against the hinges, using the marks made previously on the hood to help with alignment.
  2. Have an assistant hold the hood. Install the hinge-to-hood bolts, the hood support and the hood support bolts. If so equipped, install the washer hose.
  3. Tighten all bolts securely and check the hood for proper alignment.


The hood is provided with up-and-down and side-to-side adjustments.

  1. To make the side-to-side adjustments:
    1. Loosen the hood attaching bolts and move the hood to the proper position, then tighten the attaching bolts.
    2. Repeat the procedure if necessary.

  2. To make the up-and-down adjustment (at the rear of the hood):
    1. Loosen the hood stop bolts.
    2. Using a screwdriver, turn the hood stop screws clockwise to lower the hood and counterclockwise to raise the hood. Hood is at the proper height when it is flush with the fenders.
    3. Tighten the hood stop bolts.
    4. Repeat the procedure if necessary.

Hood Latch
See Figure 4
  1. Make sure that the hood is properly aligned.
  2. Remove the hood latch attaching bolts. Move them as necessary to align with the latch dowel. Tighten the attaching bolts.
  3. Remove the locknut on the hood latch dowel, and turn the dowel clockwise to pull the hood tighter and counterclockwise to loosen it. The proper height is when the top of the hood is flush with the fenders.
  4. Tighten the dowel locknut after the proper adjustment has been obtained.

How do I remove the scanning glass in order to clean it from the inside?

For some reason my scanner over the years has developed a film/residue from the off gassing of the plastic etc. on the underside of the glass. Even though it did not seem to affect the quality of a scan, it was something that should not be present.

Here are the steps that I went though to accomplish that....

1) lock the lamp (switch on the bottom)
Very good idea.

2) open the lid and at the hinge end there are 3 screws (2 are recessed) & another screw in the middle.remove the 2 screws that are recessed (The one in the middle can remain in place.)

Warning: This cable is attached to a little PCB that has two connectors. It is best that you remove the cable on the scanner base side, since it is easier to re-insert back into the connector.

Note: That there are slots in the PCB that are to align with slots in the plastic that make up the base (will talk to this later).

3) After removing the two screws, the tricky part starts - the lid and glass and framing around the glass ( 3

sides) can slide out toward the back (toward the screws (that you just removed), lid hinges). This should Only

slide out approx 0.75in before the glass & frame are free of the bottom assy.
Note: the glass continues under the front bezel for approximately 0.75" 18-19mm. This is the reason that you are required to slide the assy. off the base.

Note: near the hinges the lid assy. is rather flexible so the following is possible. This sliding process that I & the previous writer write about is extremely hard. What I did was to take a very wide flat screw driver and used it as a pry bar.

Note: that there are tabs that have to clear the opening that you create when trying to insert the flat screw driver.
This enabled me to get a great deal of mechanical advantage over the process. I placed the scanner on it side

with the bottom facing me. Then I placed the tip of the screw driver against the hinge ( inside the scanner, part of the lid assy.) and used the base where the hinge is normally located (when assembled) as the pivot point.

Note: Go from one hinge point to the other and continue to use this method until the lid assy. is free.

Note: I only slid the lid assy. out approx. 1/8" or 3mm or less before going to the other hinge & repeating the process.

Note: after the lid w/glass assy. is free pivot the whole assy. at the hinge side to gain access to the base cable & disconnect it from the PCB.

Warning: The cable from the base to the lid (PCB) needs to be disconnected since there is not a great amount of free length of cable to work with and this cable is a great deal easier to reconnect during re-assembly than the one from the lid.

4) At this point the glass & lid assy. are free of the base assy.

5) clean the glass. It is glass, so one can use isopropol alcohol or distilled water.
Use a lent free cloth and make sure all the dirt, and deposited vapor/off gassing is cleaned off.

6-9) Reverse steps 4 through 1 to reassemble.
Note: I did not reverse those steps since it was not necessary. What I did was at a very slight angle slide the glass under the front bezel.
Note: I first made sure that the cables (lid & base) were connected to the PCB, & as I was sliding the lid assy. into position. I also made sure that the PCB slots were properly aligned to the plastic slots in the base assy.

Note: I did not worry about if the clips on each side were engaging or not. This enable me to make sure that the cables were attached & that the PCB was positioned properly. After everything looked good I pressed the Lid assy. & base together so as to engage the clips on both sides. This does not require a great amount of force/pressure to accomplish.

Warning: Do not forget to unlock (the slide switch for) the lamp.

10) Clean the top surface same as step 5 (prior to plugging it back in of course).

Hope this helps.

How can i replace the hood lift supprt on a 1998 ford explorer?

This shows you how to take the hood off, the hinges, I am not sure how to replace those since my online resources doesn't cover that portion of body work. The diagram seems to show that the hinge goes into the firewall, so if you want you might have to cut into the firewall, but this is more of a salvage yard procedure.

I would look at the hood lift support more closely to see if you can indeed replace it.

REMOVAL & INSTALLATION Fig. 1: Exploded view of the hood-to-hinge mounting 85550005.gif
NOTE: It is highly recommended that you have at least one assistant helping during this operation.
  1. Open the hood.
  2. Matchmark the hood-to-hinge position.
  3. Disconnect any electrical wire harness plugs.
  4. Have you're assistant(s) support the weight of the hood.
  5. Remove the hood-to-hinge bolts and lift the hood off of the hinges.
  6. Installation is the reverse of the removal. Loosely install the hood and align the matchmarks. Tighten the bolts securely. Before removing the hood, matchmark the hood hinge to the hood 89680p03.jpg
    If equipped, disconnect the hood light wire harness plug . . . 89680p04.jpg
    . . . along with any ground straps 89680p05.jpg
    While an assistant holds the hood, remove the hinge-to-hood attaching bolts 89680p06.jpg
