Most modern unibody vehicles, yours included, have lift points (w/ notches) just behind the front wheels and just forward of the rear wheels. The lift points are accessed from outside, just ahead of and behind the doors. If you look under the edge of the body in these locations, you'll see the notches that I mentioned earlier. Your scissors jack has a tab that engages the notch when you lift. The jack will sit perpendicular to the wheels.

Good luck- and safe lifting.

Strange humming sound from front wheel drive camry,i being a mechanic , i checked with tcar on jacks and the front heel sfree,and there was no sound , but the moment i drive it ,it starts making this


It could be the hub bearing. Once the car is on the ground, the weight puts more load on the wheels. See if the noise changes when driving while turning the steering wheel

Need to no how to change fromt wheel bearings and


Hi - Sorry to hear you're having problems.
My expert advice is to take it to a shop. The idea that wheel bearings are easy is not true - and if done wrong could cost you your life.
Please consider letting a professional do it as it is costly just to purchase the tools and is dangerous even with the car on jack stands.

Thanks

How do I replace the front turn signal bulb in my cadalic srx


First do not take it to a dealer. They will charge you $290. They will claim that they have to take the front bumper off.

1. Loosen the lug nuts on the wheel.
2. Jack the car up using the factory jack points.
3. Once you have the car jacked up, put a jack stand under the frame.
4. Take wheel off and set aside. Once the wheel is off start under the front bumper and take off the clips that are holding on the inner fender liner. Then you can start taking off the clips with in the wheel well that hold the inner liner on.
5. Once the liner is out you will be able to see the light assembly. Using the correct sized torx screw driver. Take out the 6 screw on the assembly. You will then be able to pull the housing off and the bulbs are simple to change.
6. Put it all back together in the reverse order and remember to torque you wheels to 100 ft lb.

Takes about 40 mins if you have the right tools and are somewhat mechanically inclined.

Changing the front tyre on a renault scenic


There is a wire handle that you use to remove the plastic centre cap then you put the jack at the jacking point. Before the wheel comes off the ground use the wheel brace which is also the jack handle to slighly loosen the wheel nuts. Jack the wheel completely off the ground and remove the wheel nuts and then the wheel

There is a loud noise coming from the rear end


Had something like this with my much loved 6 cylinder Camry. Turned out to be a wheel bearing. You can check by raising the rear wheel off the ground with the jack and if you can move the wheel in and out, you need a wheel bearing. And it is a safety issue - when bad enough the wheel can come off the car, definitely a life changing experience. Check both rear wheels, just take a few minutes of your time. Don't believe the Elantra or any other front wheel drive car has a differential, those are used in rear wheel drive vehicles.

Front brake pads need to be changed, how?


Jack the vehicle u. Support it on jack stands. Remove front wheels. There are two bolts that hold the brake caliper on. Remove those. use a C-clamp to push the caliper piston back in. Install the new pads in the caliper brackets (pop into place). Put caliper back on, then wheel back on. Put vehicle back on the ground. Press brake until firm. Done.
