How do you change the drivers side door handle on a 1998 Dodge Avenger?

== == Go to the Allpar.com site and search for an article by Rodger Koppa on how to do this nasty little job. Did it on both my doors, be prepared to cuss a bit. After you install the new handles you can forestall future breakage by just popping the lkatch with the handle, and then using the edge of the door to swing the door open. Those dinky plastic handles just can't take the side torque with those heavy doors! I used the directions provide by Rodger Koppa to repl;ace my passenger side door handle and it works great. Like he says though be prepared to cuss a little bit and just hope you don't drop anything into the door. Good Luck!!

Where is the flasher to fix a left turn signal that is stuck on?

Hey Tina==It is a burned out bulb that is the problem. Find out if it is front or rear and take the light assy off and change the bulb from the rear. If you told me what kind of car you have and model, I may could have been more specific. GoodluckJoe If you have a W126 and your left marker lights stay on, try twisting your headlight switch clockwise one click, to the "off" position.

How do you change a driver's side door handle on a astro van?

Take off the door panel from inside. Start at the inside door handle, their are 2 plastic covers over the 2 screws that hold the door handle (pry these off with a flat screwdriver), undo the 2 hex screws and slide forward or back (I think forward) to remove it. There is a another screw (phillips) to undo at the right side of the panel . You will remove this also. Then pull out on the panel, starting at the bottom. There are thirteen plastic clips holding it. Any plastic clips that are too damaged to reuse can be replaced with new parts from the dealer. If they charge you more than 25 cents each, you might try a different dealer. When you get to the top of the door panel, it lifts straight up to come off of the door. If the door panel hasn't been removed before, there will be a paper moisture barrier in place that you probably have to tear to get access to the door handle. You can fix it with tape later if you don't tear it up too much.There are two nuts that hold the handle in place. You will need a 10mm open end wrench for the top nut. For the bottom nut, you must remove a plastic grommet from the end of the door then use a socket wrench with extension to remove the nut. The bottom nut is easy to remove, the top nut is fairly difficult especially puttng the nut back on. Someone with long skinny fingers will have no problem. There is also a clip that holds the handle to the linkage. To remove this, you pry up on the tab that sticks out toward the handle, and push it in the opposite direction. Take a look at the one that came with the new door handle to see how it works. The linkage fits into a slot in the clip, and moving the clip gets the slot to a wider opening where the linkage can slip right out. This is the trickiest part to reinstall. It is recommended that the key lock linkage be moved out of the way before doing any of this work. This is done by removing the circlip attached to the keylock, this allows the linkage to move up out of the way. The job is so much easier with this linkage not in the way.The new handles coming out of Taiwan used to be of better quality than the genuine AC Delco product, but this is no longer the case. I have heard that if you keep the linkage well lubricated, the handle will not break. This is probably true, so try to lubricate all the pivot points with white grease while you have the door taken apart.When you are ready to install the new handle, decide which clip to use for the linkage (the old one or the new one, use whichever looks of better quality), and slide the clip out a bit so the end of the linkage can slip into the hole. Also make sure the new door handle has a rubber gasket on the back to go between it and the door(some do not have a gasket). If not, use the one off the old door handle. To put the handle in place, you may have to operate it so that it is in the position it would be in if you were actually opening the door, and hold it like that against the spring as you slip it into position. Then, before putting the two nuts back on, get the linkage attached correctly. Put the nuts on, and the plastic grommet and door panel back on, and you're done.This job is harder then it looks for a nonprofessional but it can be done with a little patience.B:You can try the above and pull your hair out or just do as I did!

The Best way to remove and replace the old handle is to remove the door latching system there are 3 star drive screws located in the jamb, before you pull those out remove the 4 connecting rods to the latch, this will save you hours of trying to get to the top 10mm nut that is impossible to replace once off, removing the latch gives you "full access" to the top nut!

How do you replace the front right axle on a 1996 Honda Civic?

FIRST REMOVE THE WHEEL SECOND TAKE A SCREWDRIVER AND BEND THE PART OF THE LOCKNUT HOLDING THE HALFSHAFT OUT THIRD REMOVE THE NUT OFF THE STEERING ARM AND USE A BALL JOINT SPLITTER TO PULL IT APART FOURTH DO THE SAME WITH THE TIE ROD END. PRY THE HUB ASSEMBLY BACK FROM THE AXLE, BEING CAREFUL NOT TO CUT YOUR BRAKEHOSE IF THE AXLE WILL NOT GO WITHOUT MORE FORCE, HAVE SOMEONE PULL THE HUB ASSEMBLY AND HIT THE MIDDLE OF THE AXLLE WITH SOMETHING ROUND TO FORCE IT THROUGH THE HOLE, BE CAREFUL NOT TO DAMAGE THE SPLINE GROOVES ON THE HUB WHEN YOU HAVE THE AXLE OUT OF THE HUB ASSEMBLY, JERK THE AXLE STRAIGHT OUT OF THE TRANNY AND IT SHOULD POP OUT WHEN YOU HAVE THE NEW AXLE JUST ALLIGN THE AXLE IN THE HOLE OF THE TRANNY AND PUSH HARD, DO NOT JERK THE AXLE BACK BECAUSE IT WILL DAMAGE THE NEW ONE REPEAT THE REST OF THE STEP BACKWARDS TO REINSTALL YOUR AXLE.

AdditionI had to give the axle a little more force by carefully using a screwdriver between the axle and tranny to pry the axle out. Don't use to much force since you don't want to crack the tranny. Do not forget to lubricate axle (tranny end) with a little engine oil before inserting the new axle. This prevents a dry shaft from spining the seal in the transmission.

Turn Signals and Hazard Lights

Where is the flasher unit to fix a left turn signal on a '96 Mitsubishi Montero?

Hey Tina==If just the left signal is staying on, it isn't the flasher. One of the bulbs, either front or rear, are burned out. Find out which one isn't working and I think you have to take the housing off of the car to change the bulb. GoodluckJoe If the bulb is not burned out, it's most likely the turn signal combination switch. The turn signal portion of it easily breaks off internally, leaving the signal in the last position (left in your case). The combination turn signal and light switch will need to be replaced. On some Montero models that can be be done without removing the steering wheel. Just removed the bottom steering wheel cover, move the steering wheel in the lowest position and remove the top cover. Then remove the two screws that keep the combination switch in place, unplug the wiring plugs (press plug release and pull out). Relative easy procedure. Buying a new switch will be the most painful part, OEM parts are expensive. Maybe you cna find a refurbished combination switch at an acceptable price.

How do you replace a CV axle for a Ford Escort 1993 1.9 liter?

You need a new or reman. axle, a new axle nut, the transmission fluid specified for your car, anti-seize compound, and a new boot and cotter pin for the tie rod end. The hard part is getting the axle nut loose. I can't remmeber what size it is, but you'll need a long cheater bar on a breaker bar to get it loose. Or an impact wrench, if you've got one. Once the axle nut is loose, raise the car and remove the tire. You have to unbolt the MacPherson strut where it attaches to the knuckle. You may also have to unbolt the tie rod end. Remove the tie rod end with a "pickle fork". You should be able to push the end of the axle out of the hub bearing. If you can't, apply some penetrating oil, put the OLD axle nut on the end (to protect the threads) and beat the tar out of it with a hammer until it pops loose. Make sure the knuckle is supported so that you're not just ramming the axle into the transmission when you hit it. The idea is to persuade the axle out of the bearing. Once the axle is free of the steering knuckle, you will have to pull the other end out of the differential. There is a circlip holding it in the side gear of the diff, so you may need to lever it out with a crowbar or prybar. Be careful of what you use as a fulcrum. It will come out with a slight "POP". WARNING: If you are removing BOTH axles, place a length of broomstick through each axle hole as you remove the axles. Otherwise the side gears will fall out of the differential and you'll have to tow the car to a transmission shop to get them put back in!!! Ensure that the new axle has a circlip on the end. Lubricate the splines with transmission fluid and push it into the hole, making sure that the splines line up before pushing it all the way in. When it goes in, you should hear and/or feel the circlip POP into the side gear in the differential. Coat the outside shaft spines with anti-seize compound and slide into the hub bearing. Fit the knuckle back to the MacPherson strut and tighten the bolts to spec. (Not sure what that is offhand.) Install the tie rod end with new boot, tighten to spec, and use a new cotter pin to secure the castle nut. Put on the new axle nut but do not tighten it yet. Reinstall the tire, lower to the ground, and tigthen wheel lug nuts to spec. Using a torque wrench, tighten the axle nut to spec. ...sorry I don't have the torque specs handy. But you should be able to Google those. :) Check your transmission fluid level as some will probably have spilled out the axle hole. This procedure should not require an alignment unless you remove the ball joint, lower control arm, or the entire MacPherson strut assembly.

I believe there is. I drive a 99 model. I was trying to fix my cigarette lighter last night and the owners manual indicated that there are fuse boxes in one of the side compatments in the boot (it is a touring model) and one other location. Sorry I can't be more precise but I'm away from the car right now. The fuse panel for cig. lighter is in the right rear of the trunk, above the battery.

Where is the fuse box for the Ford Escape?

There is a distribution box under the hood on the right side, that has some fuses, the other is under the dashboard on the left side directly under the steering wheel. In the 2008 model, the fuse box is in the center console on the passenger side. There is a panel that removes without tools and provides access to a black box. The black box cover has clips top and bottom that must be squeezed to remove the cover. Under the cover are the fuses.... unfortunately Ford chose to go with non-standard fuses.... so you need to use special fuses as replacements.

For the 2002 Ford Escape, the interior fuse box is on the left panel of the driver's foot well. It is covered by a snap off panel that also has the fuse removal tool in the bottom. On the back of the cover is a diagram (hard to see, but there) of the fuse locations by type (audio, radio, etc). Note that removing the audio and radio fuses still does not disable the CD player.

How do you change the auto trans fluid on a 3.4 V6 99 Olds Alero?

Drop the oil pan. But another option if not replacing fluid filter is to take a very small clear hose and tape it to a shop vac hose, put the hose all the way down the fill spout and suck the fluid out. sugest a clean vac so you can determine the amount of fluid that came out and compare to the capacity chart, it will be less but not by much.

Drop the trans pan not the oil pan!

How do you change the driver's side front turn signal lamp on a 2001 Ford Escape 4WD?

This is very difficult for a beginner to accomplish, however, there are 2 ways to attempt to do it. First, you can remove the bumper, battery, and entire wheel well assembly, or you can attempt to get to it from under the wheel well. The easiest way, that I have found, is to remove the bumper and the wheel well. To do this, there are several screws on the underside of the bumper; they have 10 mm heads, remove them. There are 2 10 mm screws holding the grill and bumper in place, at the top corners of the grill, remove them. there are several screws holding the wheel well to the bumper, along the outer edge of the well, remove them. They are snap in screws, so you may have to pry them out. There is one metal screw holding the wheel well to the body, at the upper, outer edge of the wheel well, remove it. There is also another snap in screw that is hidden under the wheel well. It is in the front of the well, about 14 inches up. There is a 10 mm screw that holds the front of the wheel well to another piece of molding that is attached to the underside of the vehicle. If you are looking at the front of the tire, from the outside of the well, it will be strait ahead, about 6" from the bottom of the well. Once you get this screw off, you must bend the plastic out from under the "skid plate" plastic cover. I chose not to reassemble the wheel well in this manner as it was too much of a pain to get it off. At this point, the front plastic of the wheel well should fold down. Bend it out of the way, but don't break it. Once you remove all of these screws, and move the bumper out of the way, you will be able to see the headlight assembly. There are 2 screws that hold the top of the assembly in place, one screw that holds the bottom front of the assembly in place (blocked by the bumper) and another screw that holds the far right side of the assembly in place (blocked by the bumper, almost at the wheel well) At the top, there are 2 points where the assembly snaps onto the frame, pry them up. There is 1 place, near the wheel well that is also snapped into place. Remove these screws and the headlight assembly will come out. Change the light, the mount twists out of the assembly. Re-assembly is the reverse of removal. Make sure everything is snug so the screws don't back out.
