I just replaced my trunk struts on my 97 contour. It looked like an impossible job until I saw in my tool box two tools I had bought at a flea market.
Each one had a 5 inch long hex handle and one had a straight end like a skinny ice pick.
The second tool was like the first except the point was like the beginning of a corkscrew.
The corkscrew tool works by inserting the point in under the spring clip and twisting, I had to add my skinny vice grips to get enough twist but it makes it easy to snap the strut out of the ball.
The straight tool works perfect to hold the spring clip up thereby unblocking the socket so it can be snapped on the ball. Pull the tool out and with your finger make sure the spring snapped back in place to hold the unit to the car.
When I snapped off one end of the first strut, the trunk snapped closed and it was dark and cramped but I thought I was the Houdini but after 10 minutes of battle I decided to just relax and wait. In one hour and 20 minutes my wife rescued me. Sometimes all you can do is to remain calm.
What engine? Ford contour 2.0L DOHC eng. distributorless ignition are controlled by the main PCM There is an ignition module on the 99 contour 2.0 with automatic transmission. It is shown in the schematics for this model.
No. The Contour did not have chipped keys.
With a brick.
I was quoted just over $700 to replace struts & shocks in the front and rear of my '99 Dodge Caravan. Earlier I was quoted just under $700 to replace the same in my '91 Ford Escort.
its in the fuel tank
most likely struts.
your shocks are bottoming out your shocks are bottoming out
No. One is a 2.0 SPI and the Contour is a 2.0 Zetec.
How do you get in the trunk from the inside of a 1999 plymouth
in a 99 there is easy access in the trunk, if u pull out the interior you will see it toward the back seats.
Does the "Service Stability System" message come up? If so, you probably have a leak in one of the shocks. Warning, the 99 Seville STS has electronically controlled suspension and leveling, the rear shocks and front struts are very expensive to replace.
The shocks on a 1999 Harley Fat Boy are not really adjustable. There are kits that lower the bike available on the after market.
14.5 Gallons or 55 liters.
it's all one belt
just get a new car.

How do you replace evpansion valve on 99 gs 300
If you have figured out where it is leaking from then here is a link to check out. I haven't used these people yet, but I am planning on it if I need to replace the air shocks in the front...
Try looking in the trunk. Might find the sticker on the trunk arm inside.
