NEVER, NEVER use a home vacuum to vacuum toner. There is a HIGH danger of explosion! If your toner hopper is full, carefully dump over a trash can (Outside) and/or replace. Most likely the bushings on the upper fuser roller are worn or just dirty. I have had some success removing them and cleaning with some light steel wool. Or replace the fuser.

Several things. When the drum unit has toner backed up in the waste toner channel, it will put a drag on the drive assembly. Make sure the waste toner reservoir in the toner unit is not filled up. If it is, take the toner unit out, open the spring loaded waste door and try to vacuum or dump out the toner. Do not use a regular home vacuum inside your house. the toner is too fine and will disperse throughout your home and possibly cause some breathing irritation.

Front wheel alignment

Wheels are to straigten. Best to replace.

Was run into a curb at a fairly high speed. front end acts like wheels are spinning on elipctical spinndles.

Something is BENT! You need to take it in and have the Alignment checked on it. The curb knocked it out of whack!!! A simple alignment should take care of this but more than likely you bent the wheel ( RIM )

On my 05 reg mitsubishi l200 the steering wheel does not sit straight and almost have to hold the steering left to go straight its not bad but is there anything i can do?

Get an allignment. Some kind of way it is out of whack and its not the safest situation. Take it in to an allignment specialist and they can straighten the wheel. Good Luck

My tray is getting stuck it sounds as if it is trying to open

Your DVD drive has just shifted inside your xbox. You can try whacking it and it should come out, or you could open your xbox and re align it yourself. opening your Xbox is easy. You will need a special screwdriver and a paperclip. Just google "how to take apart my xbox" for plenty of guides. Hope this helps.

1998 k2500 front wheel won't come off - it is binding on the hub. Thought I would pull on the wheel and whack on the studs but (just because I don't want them to) these studs just knock out too easily!!...

sounds like it might be rusted / corrosion stuck on the hub, First I would spray generously allaround the hub and wheel . Let it sit a few minutes. Then spray again , and BEHIND the wheel with a small piece of wood and a 5 lb sledge and beat that wheel off. It'll come.

Need to remove rear wheels

If you removed all the lug nuts then it could be just some dirt/rust holding the wheel on. With some swift hard kicks to the tire it should come off.

I have had some people that did off roading and their wheels were really stuck. I had to break out a large mallet and give it a couple whacks to get theirs off.

Key will not turn to start engine.

That is not much info but sometimes if you turn the steering wheel either to the right or the left while turning the wheel you can get the key to turn try it

Sound to me that the ink cartridge carriage is stuck if you can remove ink cartridges and then reinstall them. You may have to take machine apart. There are clips on the bottom of the machine to do this but be aware that when you turn it upside down the waste ink will leak

Hope I could help
Thanks J
