How Do I stop a leak from the Brake Fluid Refill Cup?

My first thought is that perhaps the fluid is over-filled. There must be some air space left in the reservoir to allow for expansion. Check to be sure it is not over filled. If it is than remove the extra amount and the leaking should stop. There is a fill line on the side of the plastic of the reservoir. A plastic medicine sering works good for the removal. Beyond this either the cap or the reservoir are likely cracked or a brake line is not seated correctly.

I have a Shoprider Scootie 4 wheeler for many years. The floorboard is made of plastic. It is cracked in half and needs to be replace. I cannot find any replacement floorboards suppliers. Any...

There is a way to do this depending on the length of the crack. But put the two pieces together and drill a series of holes on both sides of the cracked parts along the crack but about 1/2" away from the crack, there is a product called Bondic and it is a liquid plastic that turns hard in a few seconds. You fill the holes first and cure it each time as you do it. Then you connect the holes to each other and cure and finally fill the crack all the way on both sides. It doesn't look that pretty, it kind of looks like plastic stitches but it often works well. There are videos under

2003 Chevy Trailblazer

First you reach for the tab near the center of each "half" of the back seat bottom at the back (in the crack of the seat). Pull the tab forward and up, pivoting the bottom of the seat toward the front. Ensure the front seats are forward enough to allow the seat bottom to lie flat on the floor. Next, reach up along the (outer) side of the seat back, and lift the lever, while folding the seat back forward. You may need to pivot or remove the headrest(s). The seat back should lie flush atop the upside down seat bottom. This works for my 2002 Olds Bravada, which is supposed to be similar. Good luck!

My 1998 Chevy Silverado has coolant leaking from the radiator at the small metal fitting at the top drivers side of the rad. Is the a seal that can be replaced or does the entire rad need to be replaced?

There's not usually a seal for these, the metal is commonly molded into the plastic sides of the radiator.. Remove the radiator tube and inspect the plastic around the fitting for cracks. If you find cracks in the plastic, then you know your answer. If it's leaking from around the radiator hose you could try replacing the clamp with a hose clamp that you can tighten with a screw driver.

My guess is the plastic is cracked there, and the radiator needs replaced, but you should inspect it first of course.

Good luck

Driver power seat

Yes, that piece is called the "recline cover". You will need the trim color code from the vehicle identification plate on the inside driver's door frame to match the trim plastic color. This is going to be a dealer part or perhaps an ebay part but make sure the trim color is a match.

Power seat not working

My drivers side power seat stopped moving forward and back...back rest still worked. Took it to dealer and they charged me $60 to fix a "loose wire."
The seat worked for 2-3 days and quit again. Took it back to the dealer, and they now said it needed a new motor and track at a cost of $750+. Told them to forget it and called GM. GM will not cover it, and they have not covered a host of other problems like new radiator, new water pump, new instrument guage cluster, cracked exhaust manifold, and misaligned rear door/window air deflector (which they even have a bulletin out to all service department that it is poor design and the body shop should "shave the plastic down so it doesn't hit roof when door is open).

Back to the seat, I took a large, flat blade screwdriver and ran it along the seat guide rails and pryed on the seat mount slightly....guess what? It the power seat now moves forward and back.

Bottom line is GM manufactures junk and will not stand behind it. Now we know why the company is going bankrupt.
