Well, I just had mine replaced. I don't know everything taken apart...but I do know the whole dash had to be disassembled. My son took it all apart and rerouted it so I could drive it until I could get it fixed. Had car repair shop fix it and it cost me $225.00. While he was fixing that..he found out the water pump was ready to go. That cost me $704.74. But even tho the car is 10 years old it's a great car and was worth the money it took to put in it.

How do you change the air conditioning bulb on the 1999 Subaru legacy outback?

The only bulb I can think of for an air conditioner is for the on/off indicator light. They use a special tiny tiny bulb only available through your Subaru dealer and you have to take the heater controls apart. This involves taking much of the console apart and the cables that come from the heater control tend to spring their clips loose and may cause the heater controls to stop working. If you can live with it not working that would be my advice. If you decide to change the bulb be prepared to spend at least an entire afternoon and keep the kids away if you don't want them to hear bad language.

1995 Oldsmobile achieva Power window will not work When you press the button the motor makes a noise but window will not move How can I fix this Does it need a new motor?

It sounds like the mounting bolt has pulled through. If you hear the motor, you will only have to remount the motor. Take the door apart and find a large washer to put on the bolt to keep it from pulling through the motor mount. I have had to do this on 2 of my windows so far.
