I have a idea to help you .If apart ,you mean the rivets are missing? If this is the issue, find or ask a family member w/ a pop rivet gun.The claws that do the grabbing are stamped,labeled (L)-(R). Reassembling the Grabber w/ the rivet gun wouldn't be too difficult .I could fix your problem, if we were neighbors!

My corded mouse fell apart and I don't know how to put it back together

Not for nothing, but perhaps it's time to upgrade to either an optical or a laser mouse, no cleaning needed (except the occasional skate cleaning but that's all external) and they work on most any surface, except say glass, without need of a mouse pad. They're an inexpensive update and worth the money spent in my opinion.

Power seat motor replace

As far as I know the seat motors are not serviced separately from the entire seat track assembly, that just unbolts from the seat bottom the seat has two bolts in front and two in rear that are covered with a trim piece. Disconnect any wiring and be sure to not break the wire connector locks, don't man handle them apart.

My Animal sounds like a jet engine, especially when I turn it off, it just winds down. I have washed the filter under the canister, is there another one that needs to be cleaned?

Hi, Barry. W/D here. I have just experienced this problem, and here's how to fix it.
  1. Remove the canister from the cyclone separator. One sign of clogging is debris on the filter located under the canister. If debris is present on the filter, clean it with soap and water, then dry thoroughly while you proceed to the next step.
  2. Looking up into the cyclones from the bottom, you will see the holes that correspond to each cyclone. I use a flexible grabber that is used to retrieve nuts and bolts. (It has a spring and thumb driven end that allows small jaws to open when the thumb end is pushed, and the jaws close when the pressure on the thumb drive is released). Pass the jaws end up into the hole(s), one at a time, opening the jaws as you clear the opening. Insert the grabber fully, and then release the jaws. Retract the grabber, and remove the debris captured by this method. Repeat as necessary. These grabbers are easily found at most hardware stores, and are inexpensive.
  3. Compressed air may aid in removing debris, or at least move it around to where it may be more easily grabbed.
  4. Lastly, you can disassemble the cyclone chambers to inspect and clean. The canister has three molded in lugs located internally behind the canister gasket. You will have to remove the gasket and carefully separate the halves. Use a sharpie and make match lines on your pieces as you separate them from here on in, to make reassembly easier. Once separated, you will have access to the screws that hold the cyclone assembly to it's base. You'll need a #20 torx bit to remove these. Once removed, remove any debris and clean all parts prior to reassembly.
  5. This should have you thoroughly cleaned. One other thing....dump the canister frequently; if you wait until you are at the full mark, you have probably gone too far.
  6. Hope that this was helpful. Best regards, W/D

Brand new Huskie 450e used for two days and the throttle is now broken. The actual trigger itself feels like it isn't attached to anything anymore. Is it an easy fix?

In the 400 series of Huskies I have fixed, the handle comes apart with several screws. Sounds like the simple problem might be in the handle/trigger assembly. The more complex problem is if the throttle linkage rod popped out of the throttle. The outside trigger interacts with a black plastic insert and spring that provides pressure outward to keep the throttle low. This assembly connects to a thin metal rod that looks like the path a drunk would take doing a sobriety test after too many martinis. The rod goes into the housing and connects into a hole in the throttle assembly, then is locked in place with a plastic piece that slides down to keep the rod from falling out. In order to see this area, the cover needs to come off. I'll be honest. The last one I had, the rod fell out of both ends. It took me two days of pondering, playing around, cursing, getting up and walking away, then coming back to finally figure out where the ends went. The blue plastic piece had slid down, covering the hole, so I was at a loss as to where it attached to the throttle. NOTE: When removing the handle, try real hard to keep it together until all screws are removed. THEN VERY CAREFULLY begin to take it apart, looking in from the top of the handle. You might get one good glimpse of how the parts fit together before they fall apart on you. Husky does have a good website for exploded view diagrams, but sometimes they leave a little to be desired for 2-Dimensional art vs. 3-D Reality. Good luck.

Can i connect a samsung camcorder vdp453 to windows7 pls?

Most of these camcorders do not have proper usb support for video, so you'll have to buy a so-called video grabber or capture card. You can plug in the video grabber to usb and then connect dvi or firewire from your camcorder. Install the included software, configure your camera. Then press play and the video grabber will record the input from your camera.
When you buy one of those video grabbers, make sure it's a good one. Make sure powerful and stable software (which is compatible with windows 7) is included. Cheap things usually don't work. I've had this Chinese piece of junk for $10 which lagged and kept crashing my computer. Pinnacle was a lot more expensive but it works great and the fun will last a long time.

I took apart the handle for my Toro Trimmer Model number 51972 and a spring fell out and I'm not sure where/how it goes back into the handle. I took it apart because the trimer runs but the spool does not...

Hello, Hopefully the exploded parts list can help you out... I've done the reassemble of a trimmer handle once and explaining it can get dicey. The only suggestion that helped me was to have scotch tape handy to act as a third hand when holding small items between two other parts. You don't actually wrap the item, just place it on a small piece of tape - when the item is in position the tape removes easily. Your diagram link is the top one. Good Luck!

How do you open a hoover steamvac agility to change the lower hose assembly?

ok. you will need a screwdriver phillips and a pair of ****. this is going to take about an hour. first take off the tanks, nexted on one side of the machine you will see i believe its 8 to 10 screws. (you don't need to take apart the handle) once you take all of them out, there's a plastic plate that the tanks sit on. take this off. (4 screws) got that done, seperate the two pieces.(the handle will come out so you have more space, it will be a tight fix) the haves are apart and you will see the hoses there. take out the big long hose(2 screws hold it on at the top) and at the bottom of this is the short hose that you need to replace. using your **** cut the plastic on either side of the notches on both sides. put the new hose on. then reverse your steps for putting back together. hope this helps out
