Has to be drilled out. There used to be a picture of exactly the place to drill with a 1/2" bit and work a flat head counter-clockwise to release the latch. Of course, there is nothing that I can find online anymore. Yeah, I'm looking for the picture now because this is the 2nd time I have to replace it. Look at over $400 for a dealer to do it or pick up a used latch at the junkyard for about $35 and do it yourself. Never-the-less it will continue to happen forever to everyone owning a 1990-1993.

How does the front wheels lock in on a 1996 GMC 4x4?

If it doesn't have manually locking hubs on the front wheels, It means it's a "constantly" locked front 4x4. You don't have to lock them, they already are.

For 1998 Nissan Pathfiner should front hubs turn without moving drive shafts when 4 wd disengaged Should wheel spin without moving driveshaft when up on jack stand?

NO. Engaging four wheel drive only engages the transfer case. Older four wheel drives had to have the hubs locked manually, by turning a dial on the hub itself. Newer vehicles no longer require the hubs to be manually locked.

How do you get gas door open when locked?

Happened to me when I was very low on fuel. Client, that I called to explain I was going to be late, came to rescue. You need to manually push the lever/plunger. Get at it by opening trunk and pulling down panel on fuel door side as if you were going to replace a bulb in the back. Notice, a box and plunger as you look from back (light panel area) to front of vehicle. Push plunger. Viola!

Is a 1994 ford ranger tensioner pulley spring loaded cant get it locked back in place?

The tensioner has an arrow on it, indicating the direction it needs to be pulled to allow the installation of the belt. The pulling is accomplished by putting a standard 3/8" ratchet driver into the square hole, and putting hand pressure on the handle of the wrench. The square hole is in the middle of the tensioner, and you just pop your wrench into it like its a socket. Use a long driver, so its easier to overcome the tensioner spring.

Can a learner driver take a drunken licensed driver home?

Legally, a driver in possession of a learner's permit MUST have a qualified (and sober!) licensed driver in the car whenever the learner is driving. So, no, you cannot act as the more mature driver and take a drunken licensed driver home. Instead, make sure the vehicle is locked and that you have the keys, and call your parent or a friend to come get you and the drunken driver who's supposed to be watching out for you. Don't risk being the driver in this situation, even if "home" is just a few blocks away.

How do you unlock door on a 2002 Jaguar xk8?

I assume you mean from inside the car. The inner door handle has three positions. If you push it in the door is locked. This also electrically triggers the passenger door to lock. Pulling it out slightly unlocks the doors, and pulling it out all of the way opens the doors.
