It's actually quite simple, all you need is a drill and the right size or drill bit.
Choose a drill bit a about the size of the hole required, if you are not sure, choose a smaller size, it's easier to make a hole bigger.

Take apart the old knobs, from the inside of the cupboard, use the drill make the old holes bigger.

Attach the new knobs.

Congratulations, you did it :-)

2005 Impala gear shift button popped out. I have to put it back in each time I need to shift to D, R, etc. How can I remedy this problem without replacing the whole gearshift?

Re-attaching the knob to the gearshift is the key...Look for a hole on the lower section of the knob...if you cannot see it...remove the bottom chrome piece from the knob, (pry apart carefully not to scratch the chrome should see the small hole normally includes a small allen insert screw or Phillips screw...must be screwed in to the gear shift shaft to hold in place...if you cannot compare...visit a local salvage yard to experiment..."Pic A Part" is a national self help salvage yard. Hope this helps. If the button does not stay in the gear shift can replace the knob (with button) only...remove the knob as described above. Hope this helps.

Slave cylinder problems and boring a weep hole

Well if your about to change your slave cylinder on one of these beasts..before installing a new slave..bore a small weep hole in the slave cylinder housing (at the bottom of course) you'll need a 6 to 7 inch bit (10mm or smaller) clean out the swarf (pieces of metal left from drilling) from the housing, fit the new slave...this helps if the cylinder should fail again...the dot4 fluid will now run out the weep hole instead of being forced up the push rod....very handy..and remember replace the crush washers on the banjo bolts.

Converting natural gas to lpg

There will be a brass plug in the line where the gas comes out with a hex head and a small hole in it. You need to install a new plug with a smaller hole for lpg.

Pull cord is tangled

Unusual, but it does happen. Probably should replace cord. Obtain new cord, can be found at almost any hardware store, then remove top engine cover (cowl), usually held on by 4 bolts,two in front and two in back.If your mower has a plastic cover on top of cowl, remove it first. Remove old cord by holding wheel (looks kind of like a pulley) so that it does not spin freely once old cord is cut. Cut cord anywhere outside of the housing as close to the housing as possible. Carefully release the wheel so that it can unwind. You will see where the old cord is tied to the wheel. use needle nose pliers and grab hold of the knot and pull old cord out. Now for the fun part. You need to "rewind" the spring by turning the wheel clockwise while looking at the inside of the housing. Once you have turned the wheel to a point where you might break the spring, back off one turn to be sure you have not over wound the spring. Usually, about 5 or 6 turns of the wheel clockwise is enough, use your own judgment. The tighter you can get the spring, the better the recoil will be when you let loose the cord when starting engine. You need to line up the hole in the wheel to the hole in the cowl as close as possible. Use a screwdriver or some other small sturdy object to "lock" wheel in place for next step. There is plenty of openings through the cowl in which you can lock the wheel to keep it stationary while attaching the new cord and to keep the holes lined up as close a possible. It can be difficult to "fish" the new cord from the outside of the housing and into the holes through which you need to pull the new cord through. I have found that if you take a flame to melt the end of the cord so that it will not unravel makes it easier and if you can bear the heat, while the cord is soft from the heat, twist cord in a spiral shape. This will make "fishing" much easier.Once accomplished, tie a knot as close to the end of the cord as possible and pull line back towards the outside with a little strength to "seat" the knot. Remove screwdriver and let the tension of the spring rewind the new cord into the housing. If the spring completely unwinds then pull on the cord from the outside so the wheel turns at a minimum of on turn so there is always tension on the new cord. Route the new cord through the eye on the mower handle then install pull knob. Pull excess line through pull knob, tie knot, then cut off excess cord. Should be ready to go.

How do I remove and/or insert wires into Leviton Decora switch interruptor model 5601. Back of switch says "push to release" with arrow pointing to small square hole. What do I push to release...

Hi Ray,
Take a small screwdriver and push into the hole just far enough to release the wires. Your pushing down an inclined pinch tab that is copper and locks the wire to the side of the switch housing along with making the electrical connection. So push in gently with small screwdriver or push another solid piece of wire into the release hole to unlock the wires. It isn't that hard to do. Sometimes you may actually have to slightly push in the old wire to unlatch the locking pinch tab while also pushing in the release tab. .
Thanks for choosing FixYa,

I need to remove the ignition cylinder but, i cannot get the key to turn to the "acc" position, so i cannot perform the straight forward method

in order for you to get the ignition out you are going to have to drill a small hole in the housing and press in the retaining pin manually. it will be hard for me to describe the exact drill point to you with words, but if you have the new ignition switch in your hand you will see where the pin is and you can estimate where on the housing to drill the hole. as soon as the hole is drilled - take a small metal punch and you will need to smack the pin up into the old switch,, this will allow you to remove the old ignition. now when you are putting the new ignition in, before you do you will need to use a flat blade screw driver and turn the inside gear to the accessory position so when you slide the ignition into place everything lines up right.

The door handle is partly pewter and has snapped off at the Anchor. size from screw hole to screw hole 300mm

As it is and old model the genuine part is not available so I have had to make a plan. I have used a built in cupboard handle in Stailess steel and modified it to work. Anchoring the handle from the front will not work, so I have had to srtip the whole door and place small indentations in the foam insulation with washers behind the anchoring nuts.336b095.jpg
