    Hi Doug Eakett, I want to help you with your question, but I need more information from you. Can you please add details in the comment box? What is the manufacturer and any other information

  • Doug Eakett Aug 23, 2016

    It is a 2005 Rockwood by Forest River, once I had my truck hooked up I started lifting the jacks, I had them almost all the way up and the passenger side one stopped moving, when I went down to look at it there was a role pin broken in half sitting on the top of the plate located on the bottom of the jack, I have no idea how it could have fallen through anywhere as the jacked is foamed all the way around were it enters the trailer, does that help at all

Hello Doug...

No hits on "8287" as a meaningful jack "IDENTITY".

Just a guess here... but if you want to get that jack out... you'd be wise to get a block of wood... a jack stand... and relieve the DISABLED jack... by jacking higher (installment plan).

Stuck jacks can be quite dangerous...
Get it out of there... Then (and ONLY then)

Look to the handle linkage... for your "roll-pin"...

You will be proud

SOURCE: location of wheel jack

Lift up the table or cover on spare tire and the plastic housing for the spare tire then lifts up (by removing some simple pins) and the jack is tucked underneath (next to bumper, but on the inside of the car).

SOURCE: I cannot move the passenger side headlight out to change the bulb

I had this happen to me. It does come out just like the owners manual says but what it doesn't tell you is how hard it is for the assembly to come out. I thought I was going to brake it before it popped out, but I was so mad I didn't care anymore. I had dirt and grime binding in the assembly. Once I had it out I cleaned it up and it went back into place with out any problems.

SOURCE: aux jack location

unless it has a hole (jack) in the front for Ipods, it doesn't have one. Aux on button might indicate some models had a remote disc changer, but the button is the same for all radios

Removable top

Pull the roof liner down. Unfortunately, you may have to tear it down and damage it, but unless you get the liner down you won't be able to see the problem.

Another possible solution, put a floor jack under the middle of the drivers side door opening and open both doors. Lift slightly, and see if it loosens the latch up. Some del Sol's get a little "saggy" in the middle after a few years.

How to get passenger door open on 2006 chevy cobalt with seat belt stuck in door?

This is going to sound a little odd, but properly jack the car and then try opening this door. Put the jack in the recommended jacking spot on the passenger side.

Imagine that the back and front ends of the car are compressing the center of the car. By lifting one end or the other, the center may shift. Otherwise you do not have a frame, but the engine cradle may have a support located closer to the center of the vehicle. Do not jack the sheet metal, but you may catch the cradle and apply lift there.

You may notice by putting in a piece of cardboard in the doorjam on whether there is an increasing gap as you jack the car.

CV axle shaft replacement

1.Set the vehicle transmission in "Park" and engage the emergency brake before attempting to remove the front right axle. Place wood blocks behind the rear wheels to prevent the vehicle from rolling and loosen the lug nuts one complete turn on the right front wheel with a tire tool.

2. .Lift the front passenger side of the vehicle with a floor jack and slide a jack stand under the vehicle frame near the wheel. Lower the floor jack so the vehicle is sitting on the jack stand and move the floor jack out of the way.

3. Remove the lug nuts with the tire tool and set the front passenger wheel out of the way. Take the cap off the end of the axle with a standard screwdriver and remove the cotter pin from the axle with a pair of pliers.

  • 4. Slide the crown washer off the axle and loosen the axle nut with a crescent wrench. Unfasten the top and bottom bolts that secure the brake caliper to the rotor with a socket wrench and slide the bolts out of the caliper.
  • 5. Lift the brake caliper off the rotor and remove the brake pads from the caliper. Suspend the brake caliper from the vehicle frame with a wire hanger and take the rotor off the axle.
  • 6. Unfasten the thru-bolt on the vertical sway bar with a socket wrench and remove the bolt from the sway bar. Take the channel bolt out from between the sway bar and lower A-arm that the thru-bolt ran through, and loosen the bolts that secure the front right axle to the center flange with a socket wrench and breaker bar. You may need to loosen the bolts with the breaker bar before removing them with the socket wrench.
  • 7. Slide the front right axle off the center flange and let it rest on the A-arm. Lift the front passenger side up with the floor jack to get enough room between the steering knuckle and A-arm and slide the axle out of the vehicle.
    Install in reverse order.
