I cant remove the rearview mirror button to fix it. There is some sort of a clip holding that piece in the rear view mirror and in order to re attach the mirror to the windshield you have to get that piece...

Hi Teresa,

Yes, you are correct. The mirror bracket (the small piece - see picture below) has to come out of the mirror stem in order to get the thing glued back on to the windshield.

MOST GM vehicles have either a Hex or Torx head screw that holds onto the bracket. (see picture below)

If your mirror does not have this screw, then it is held by a spring clip (which is what I think you are describing). If this is the case, look at the bottom edge of the mirror stem/bracket assembly. There will be a small hole (slot) between the mirror stem and the mirror bracket. Take a paper clip and shove it as far as possible up in the hole. This will push and hold the spring clip back so you can slide the bracket out of the mirror stem. Please note that you are only trying to get the paper clip BETWEEN the spring clip and the bracket - the spring clip does not come out of the mirror stem assembly without breaking things. (Sorry, I do not have a picture of this type of fixture)

When you go to glue the bracket onto the windshield, make sure that all of the old glue is cleaned off first. A razor blade works well for this task. Then follow the directions in your mirror glue kit for applying the primer and glue.

Make sure the bracket is oriented correctly when you stick it to the windshield. Some mirror glues are very unforgiving and will stick almost instantly, making corrections nearly impossible.

One more hint: If the old glue (or the outline of the old glue) is still on the windshield, use a "sharpie" pen to trace around it on the OUTSIDE of the windshield. This will serve as a "locator" once you have cleaned and primed the windshield in preparation for the bracket to get glued. The pen mark can be cleaned off with regular windshield washer fluid when you are finished.

I need instructions on how to mount the nuvi 200w to my windshield

To secure the nuvi 200w to your windshield with the included suction cup mount (pictured below),


center the GPS on the clip, and tip the bottom edge on the bracket. Push the top of the GPS against the top clip until it clicks into place. Hold the bracket and GPS near the windshield where you like it best. Note where the suction cup is on the windshield in relation to the mirror, etc. Remove the GPS from the mount's clip by pushing the top tab back from the top of the GPS.

Clean the windshield (or portion that the suction cup will be stuck against) with a paper towel or newspaper and ammonia solution like Windex, etc. Clean the suction cup with the paper towel and Windex, too.

Lift the lever at the base of the mount - is shown in the picture above - if it isn't already. With the mount oriented as shown in the picture above, press the suction cup against the windshield where desired with one hand. Hold the mount firmly against the glass and use your other hand to press the lever on the base back toward the suction cup and glass. Press until it lays flat against the base / suction cup. Plug the power cord into the GPS and reinstall the GPS in the mount clips as done earlier.

To remove from the windshield, release the GPS from the mount clips, and lift the lever away from the base / suction cup. Locate the tab that is connected to the suction cup edge near the lever. Pull on the tab away from the glass to break the suction seal and remove from the windshield.

If this was helpful, please rate it 4 thumbs up. Thanks & good luck!

D70s Flash lifts into position but no flash

Remove the 2 screws from the front of the popup flash The rear plastic cover will the clip off.
Inside you will find a small switch on the right side of the flash unit when it pops up the switch should make, if it doesn't try shorting it with a small insulated item the try the camera in low light and see if if flashes.
To fix you need to remove the spring-screw from the other side then gently prise the bracket off, then just pull out the small white sleeve on the right hand side of the popup near the switch, this sleeve moves in slightly and will not make the switch on the popup flash.
Gently put the flash bracket onto the camera, be very gentle as the wires are very thin. You will see the white plastic bearing has 2 small clips which need to be through the hole on the bracket the pin which activates the switch will then be in the correct position.

Hello Bill, i understand your problem, but i think what you will have to do mate is either go to Garmin's website and order a new one as i dont think they would sell the broken item seperately, or go to a local shop that sells Gps equipment and maybe they can help you.

Need help with my whirlpool dyer a white wheel came off dont know were it goes

The small white plastic white wheel goes to the idler pulley. It is located to the left of the burner assembly on the bottom cabinet behind the blower fan assembly. This is what keeps the belt tightly around the drum. There is an excellent illustration of this at Just type in your model number and look for item 13 under the "Cabinet Parts" heading. The idler pulley attaches to the idler bracket (item 39).

There should be a small triangle shaped retaining clip that keeps the pulley in place on the shaft. It is known as a "tri-clip". If the clip has broken off, you can purchase replacements at for about $3. The part number is 690997. There is also a thrust washer on the idler shaft. The part number 233520. Make sure it is still in place.

If the pulley needs replaced, the part number is 279640 and it comes with the thrust washer and tri-clip retainers for about $14.

To access, remove the toe panel directly below the door and remove the air blower assembly cover. Make sure you UNPLUG the dryer while servicing the cabinet interior. Dangerous voltage is still present while the unit is turned off. You should be able to reach behind the drive motor and find the spring activated idler bracket. The wheel mounts on the back side of it with the thrust washer installed first, and the tri-clip inserted last. Refer to the parts drawing for details.

NOTE: Without the tension on the belt, the idler bracket will trip a small switch that prevents the drive motor from running. This is known as a "broken belt switch" that keeps a broken belt from wrapping around the motor shaft and burning. So, if your dryer is running, this is why. You should be able to hear the switch toggle as you move the idler bracket up and down.

For details on how to reinstall your dryer belt, go to and click on the "Repair Help" link. On the following page, click on the "Dryer Belt Diagrams" link under the "Special Features" section. Locate the Whirlpool dryer belt link and refer to diagram K.

If you have questions, please let me know. I hope you find this information helpful.

How to remove the motor from the transmistion 700 series

you have to take the cabinet off first, that can be done by removing the control panel screws, hinge it back and then you will find 2 brass colored brackets that hold the cabinet to the base frame. remove them and the wiring harness from lid switch. the cabinet will pull off at a 45 degree angle from the base.
remove the 2 clips from the pump, on the front of the motor, and then 2 screws hold 2 clips onto the motor, remove the clips and that will let the motor loose from the transmission plate.
this will allow you to replace the "drive coupler" that is most likely what you need to replace.
part number 285753a from whirlpool. about 15-20 bucks.

How do I remove the drivers side head lamp

there should be two 8mm bolts on top of the healdlamp capsule that are visable when the hood is open. unscrew the bolts and pull them out they are about 8in long. once the bolts are removed you are going to need a small prybar or a big flathead screwdriver and you need to carefully pop the head light capsule out of its retaining clips. it will come out hard but be careful not to crack the headlight capsule or the plastic bracket it clips into. once the capsule has been removed you can gain access to change all the bulbs in the unit. some of the white clips may come off with the capsule. you must remove them and snap them back into the plastic bracket from which they came before installing the capsule otherwise you will break the bracket or headlight capsule. dont be afraid to use a little grease on the clips on assembly to ease installation.

Garmin forerunner 205 won't stay turned on

The battery circuit connects to the main board with spring clips, near the top of the case. If the case is coming open it can cause the unit to spontaneously turn off. These spring clips may also be a little corroded from sweat or water that has leaked into the unit. Try squeezing the top of the unit gently a few times to wiggle the clips inside the case.

If you feel up to it you can open the case, clean and bend the clips, and seal it back up with silicone adhesive.

My Garmin Streetpilot c340 is locked up.

There is usually a small hole somewhere on such units that lets you insert a paper clip or a pen to reset. It is often marked reset, but not always. Look for a round hole about 1mm diameter or less. On a Garmin such as yours it should be on the back. It might actualluy be to small for a paper clip, to you might try a safety pin or soething thinner. Make sure the hole isn't a speaker, as you might ruin it by putting a paperclip in. Also check your manual to see where the reset hole is located. It should state this in the trouble shooting section. My TomTom Go 700 has the reset hole on the mounting bracket on the underside.
