How do you tighten a door mirror on a 1997 Chevy Corvette?

Is the mirror pedestal loose at the door skin, or is the bucket loose at the pedestal? The door panel has to come off first. The pedestal nuts can be accessed under the outer seal. If the bucket is loose, the mirror must be removed from the door, two screws are up inside the pedestal. If I remember correctly it should be a T-20 or T-25 torx bit. Have fun!

The same thing happened to me and my mechanic opted for... silicone jelly instead of

a replacement (which i am quite certain is necessary otherwise and perpostourously expensive because its the whole unit... not just some attatchment piece)

plus silicone jelly is pretty elastic so it will turn if needed (but only when it's really needed)

i mean it is glue... but it has worked phenomenally

Better --correct the root cause.

The pedestal is loose because the "press-nutwasher" has come off. There are 2 parts to the mirror assy. The base(bottom section) and the mirror housing. Those 2 pcs are held together by the press nut which grips the post protruding up from the base unit.

The entire assy must be removed from the door .This means the inside door panel is removed first. The (3) 10mm nuts that hold the mirror assy to the door are accessed thru the 2 rubber ports using an extension ratchet.

The wiring harness has 2 clips to disconnect ;then pull the harness from the car carefully with the mirror assy.

The mirror itself is attached to its plastic ABS frame using silicne rubber and the 2 can be separated carefully to gain access to inside of mirror housing. The mirror is curved and expensive so careful.

I cut all 8 color coded wires--no need to cut the 2 black heater wires -they have slide clips. Do not worry--these wire are reattached using inexpensive insulated crimp type butt connectors--keeping faith with the color codes.

Now you can see the post /spring/press nut assembly which need to be reassembled.

If anyone is out there I'll email a pic of the jig I made to press the nut back on the post.

We could also talk it thru--email me first

Additional Answer to this >>>>>

If the mirror is loose at the door;
Remove the inner door panel, 2 felt pads holding the door glass in place, and lower the window. You will see 2 nuts that attach the mirror, pry the door glass away from that side and block it back with a piece of wood or such. Tighten nuts.
If the mirror is loose at the attachment from the head to the stalk;
Proceed as above except remove the 2 nuts. Remove the mirror. Inside the stalk you will see 2 screws. Tighten them. That will tighten the head to the stalk. Beyond that you're on your own!

Where is the backup light switch on a 2004 silverado 1500?

Mine was found on the stearing column near the brake pedal. Changing it did not solve my problem. Neither brake light in the fenders work. The brake light on the cab works. The courtesy lights do not work when I open the doors. The courtesy lights work when I use the remote to unlock the doors. We checked all fuses, lights. They are all good. My Chevy dealer has never heard of this problem but was willing to check it for a hefty fee.

What are the air bleeds you are supposed to open on a 99 Dodge Durango to replace the thermostat?

Not sure exactly what you mean by "air bleeds". To replace the thermostat, you just have to drain the fluid and then open the housing and take it out. To get to the housing bolts, you'll first have to disconnect the upper radiator hose, and then take off the alternator bracket that's in the way. What you might be talking about are the extra coolant drain plugs that are on the underside of the engine block. There are two bolts, one on each side, of the block that you can see clearly if you crawl underneath and look up with a flashlight. Once you take them out, if no coolant drains, poke carefully into them with a screwdriver to clear out any blockage or rust. On my vehicle, I wasn't ever able to take these plugs out. I tried a few times but they were so tight I just left them and flushed the system with a hose to get all the coolant I could out. If they haven't been removed since the engine was built, good luck, but I don't think they're necessary. They just let you drain the fluid in a controlled way instead of flushing it out with huge amounts of water.

How do you replace the radiator fan relay switch on a 2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee 4 wheel drive 6 cylinder?

First, isn't that covered in your warranty? Check with the dealer.

I bought my '02 Certified Preowned and it was not covered. They wanted $185 to replace the relay.

As for fixing it yourself here is the closest thing I have found...

It shows you where the bugger is. I will try to find a replacement part and do it myself.

Hi I have done the radiator fan relay replacement ( pulse width modulator) Jeep grand chrokee.

First stand in front of the jeep. Remove gently the left front headlamp . A hole will need to be cut in the plastic at the bottom OR you can remove the entire front bumper to access the rad fan relay. New ones are about 120 from the dealer less at discount places .

It's the square part with the blue label and wire coming from it.

Replace all pieces .. level of difficulty

Need to have good mechanical ability

NewThe part Chrysler supplied came with an incorrect diagram and instructions. The note said the "LEFT" headlight and the diagram illustrated this along with a note to remove the air snorkel. Your answer was the correct direction. It is the left headlight as you FACE the car. The headlight was removed by taking out the 10mm stem nut and gently using a pry bar, outside edge first, then inside edge. Trying to remove the headlight rapidly will result in a broken plastic tab that will need to be epoxied.I used my 2" hole saw to create an access by cutting through the headlamp plastic cavity behind the headlight, a strong light will reflect onto the relay and you can see the bracket part below and between the battery and front frame toward the front of the car. With the headlight assembly out, I prised the white ball socket fittings and oiled them for ease of refit. The piece of the cavity was saved because it is critical to keep water out of the relay area. There is a small red tab on the connector of the relay that needs to be pressed and the red tab moved to the side. Then insert a screwdriver into the bottom of the connector to release the black plastic tab that locks the connectors together. Hold the new relay in your hand. Push the red tab back across the connector body and push the two halves together, they will now lock It is critical that a good flat install be performed or the part will fail and you're out $75 and the time to redo it all over again. Use the new screws in the part bag, the old ones will not tighten enough for a good grounding of the part. I used metal duct tape to tape the plastic piece back into the hole and then sealed it with two more pieces. Pressing the headlight assembly back works best if you start from the outer edge and then press the bottom edge in.

Addition to New ...

I used those instructions and it worked well...couple of things for clarification; after I popped the headlight out, I had to drill the 2" hole in the bottom, left hand side of the headlight compartment. The relay is under that side of the compartment. Once you get that opened up, the rest is fairly simple.

Also - my fan stopped operating several months ago. Before I realized it was the fan, I changed the water pump (it died at the same time), serpantine belt and thermostat (the vehicle had 95,000 miles on it, so it was due). It was at that point that I realized it was the fan that wasn't clicking on - I tested the current and it was getting an electrical charge at the appropriate time, but wouldn't kick on. I bought an after-market fan at Advanced for something like $160. It worked like a charm until about a month ago, and then it stopped working again. I took it to the dealer and was told that it would cost $760 to replace the fan and relay. The guy told me that the relay was melted. I didn't believe him, but I bought an after-market relay anyway and changed it tonight. What I found was that the connection between the fan and the relay was melted. So after changing the relay I just cut that connection out and nutted and taped the wires together, wrapping them very well for protection from moisture - and now it works perfectly.

Morale of story - before taking your Jeep to the dealer and letting him snow you into a new fan and relay, check that connection; then consider the relay, then consider the fan. You can change each of them yourself with relatively little trouble and keep the $760 for something more fun.

the above answer was very helpful. i installed the relay switch in my wife's 2002 grand Cherokee for $65. the jeep was overheating and the air was coming out warm. i thought the fan wasn't coming on so i replaced the switch and it fixed the problem. thanks

2009-07-26 All is correct; however, I was unsure were to cut, I used a flashlight & mirror to search for the relay behind the plastic portion of passenger side headlight cavity. The outside edge of the hole that you will need to cut starts about 3-4 inches from the outside edge of the cavity, this will make your center being about 7-8 inches from the edge. The relay is on a slope and you will need an elbow extension or will need to cut more plastic closer to the front of the vehicle - best of luck

It appears that the relay (which is a solid state [think transistor] unit) is subject to heat failures. When I replaced mine I used a paste that is made to help conduct heat from solid state devices to heatsinks. That helps conduct the heat from the relay to the metal frame. The paste is a white silicon based material made by Wakefield and available from electronics parts distributors. I think that Radio Shack still carries it in a small, less than an ounce tube that will suffice for a couple of these relays.

Addition to answer:

In trouble shooting I still found that I had 12 volts at the fan. Therefore I thought it was the fan motor not working. I bought two new fans neither one worked. I did not install them. Just plugged them in. The fan relay switched had already been replaced 3 years earlier with an after market from Oreily. It turned out to be the relay again. It was allowing 12 volts but could not handle the motor load. Oreily gladly replaced the switch with their life time warranty. Only out a few hours of time being stranded and chasing around for fan motors.

How do you remove the headlight assembly located on a 1997 Jeep Grand Cherokee Larado.?

This is only marginally useful for 1999 to 2004. It is not applicable to 1996 to 1998 as returned in search.

For 1999 to 2004, open the hood, and using a 7mm socket remove the long headlamp jackscrew, located as shown in the photo above, 2nd from left. Grasp the headlight assembly on the upper inboard and lower outboard corners and wiggle and pull very firmly outward to disengage the 3 ball stud alignment posts from their sockets (be cautious of the sharp edges of the grille and fender areas surrounding the headlamp).

Replacement of Jeep Cherokee Headlight

There is a bulb that plugs into a socket dirctly behind the headlight. In order to access it you must lift the hood. Next, you will have to remove the plastic ring that holds the socket in the rear of the headlight housing. Twist the ring CCW (if you are facing the front of the vehicle)until it becomes loose and pull the socket and bulb through the hole. Then using a small flat tipped screwdriver lift out the little tab that holds the lightbulb on the socket and pull the bulb straight out from the socket. {Note: Pay Close Attention to the direction the plastic ring came out from, it is a pain to get back on if you don't. It will only go on one hold the socket in place}

How do you repair a 2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee dual climate control that blows cold on on one side and hot air on the other when the heater is running?

There are several things that can cause this problem with Jeep Grand Cherokees. The actuator (door motor) can cause this, the door could also be broken. There is an good article that goes into more detail - the link is at the bottom of this page. Often, the actuator motors are too strong for the plastic doors, and they break over time. The typical fix involves removing the entire dash and replacing the plenum assembly. There is a DIY kit by heatertreater that provides instructions on how to perform the repair without removing the dash.

I just started experiencing this same exact issue with my 2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited on a road trip yesterday! It works as it should on the driver's side, but only blows cold air on the passenger side regardless of what temperature you set it on! Also, even if I completely close the passenger vents, some cold air still comes out from them and also from the floor area!

I had the same problem! Here is my cheap quick fix. Remove the glove box lid, there are 2 rubber retainers that hold it in place, just pull them out they are easy to put back, the lid will now drop down to reveal the the door motor housing, disconnect the electrical lead(Make sure you remove the neg lead on the battery first)Undo the 2 screws and then pull out the motor. A new motor cost me approx 100 pounds. If you do take my approach make sure you test the motor before you buy new as it could be some other problem. Once you have removed the motor it's easy to open and close the door by it's spigot, just to make sure it's not stuck in any way. My final test was to check for power to the electrical lead. Reconnect the battery. While turning the temp conrol check with a meter to see if there is power to the lead.

It sounds like you have aq problem with the right temperature door assembly. I have a similar problem with my 1999 Grand Cherokee Limited, but, in my case, the unit just blows cold air. The question is: How do you access these door assemblies to change them? Help! I am a do-it-yourself person and want to know where I can locate information about how to access the AZC system door assemblies to change them? I understand it involves removing the entire dash board in order to get access to the passenger side one that is broken. To do so I need some type of repair manual.

All I know is I have the EXACT same problem with by 99 jeep grand Cherokee. It started with one side blowing cold and the other blowing hot. Now, both blow only cold air. I took it to the dealer and they wanted to charge me $800 to fix it stating it was some switch that has been going out in all jeeps this model with dual heating system yet they would not consider it under warranty as a issue. Hence, I still have no heat.

I just had the problem on my 01' jeep grand the dealer told me it was a bad bun door and actuator on the passenger side at a charge of $1200.00. If your good with cars you can do the job yourself and I mean good this job was a pain in the butt the dealer est. 12hrs (plus u need to disc. the heater core and evap. for the ac) of their time it took me exactly that. Once I got the HVAC system out of the truck I noticed since the car is temp. control zoned the passenger Sid bun door which controls the flow of heat to the passenger vents was broke. The dealer was aware of the problem picked up a new part for $200 and slapped it back together worked fine( the actuator was not bad it just doesnt respond to a broken door so don't let them sell you one, you should only need a new bun door)


The problem is a wear out mechanism with the blend doors. The doors break and are stuck in the AC position...NO HEAT. There is a new product that solves the problem. Search on Google for "heatertreater" for a complete explanation of the problem and a solution.

"> "> "> ">

The problem with the system is the design of the actuators. The failure of this so called" bun" door is due to the poor design of these actuators. Over torque and excessive wear leads to failure....The only way to resolve this problem is by replacing both actuators and the temperature blend door assembly. Do not just replace the door!!!! ( note: fresh air door has same problem) I average one grand Cherokee a week in my Cooling systems repair shop. 675.00 is my going rate. It pays 6.1 hours and nothing more...don't be robbed by the dealership and stay away from driveway mechanics. Beware that your entire instrument panel must be removed along with the evacuation of the refridgerant. Not a "do-it-yourself" deal! Good luck and never by a Jeep again!

"> "> "> ">

Your failure description is the classic fail description for broken blend doors, and this is a common problem on the GC. There is an inexpensive DIY kit on Ebay from heater treater that will fix the problems without having to remove the dash panel.

The HVAC system is computer controlled and when the doors break, the computer senses that the movement of the doors is out of spec and shuts the motor down. Actually it is rare for the actuator motor itself to go bad. Usually it's a broken door combined with computer control. You can check the motor with a 9V battery and a snap connector. Just touch the wires to the motor terminals and check that it turns.

Another Example

I just thought that I'd add my experience: I have a 1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited 6-Cyl. About a year ago heat went out on passenger side (cold air came out on passenger side when heat was on and coming out on driver's side). Spring and Summer came, so I forgot about it. This Fall (maybe 1-2 months ago) I was reminded of the problem when the cold air came back. Now, about 1-2 weeks ago, all blower functionality is gone ... a real problem if you need to defrost the windows! I'm going to try the AZC test and look into the HeaterTreater. I'd hate to put any more big money into this vehicle as it has been a true money pit. I'll never buy another Jeep. It's a classy ride, but I've put more money into repairs for this vehicle than any other two vehicles I've owned.

Easy fix is available

There is a video available that shows the complete repair process and goes into an explanation of the root cause of the problem and the solution. You can also find the video by searching on YouTube. This is a very common problem on the Grand Cherokee and the kit gives a simple effective fix for the problem and is much much cheaper than taking it to the dealer.

Assuming you are going to replace the 99/04 Jeep Grand Cherokee blend doors yourself.

You would start by disconnecting the negative battery cable.

If you are going to remove the dashboard, etc to replace the blend doors.

some websites give you complete instructions with plenty of pictures.

It will take the average person with little or no auto repair skills approximately 12 to 16 hrs.

The vehicle will have to be taken to a shop that can recover the refrigerant before you start removing the dashboard and HVAC box..

If you are going to do the type of repair where you cut an access hole in the side of the HVAC box.

A short version of how the access hole repair is done.

Disconnect the Negative battery cable.

Lower the glove box

Remove the actuator motor - You will need a Phillips screw driver

Cut an access hole in the plastic HVAC box - Use a multi-purpose cutting bit, you will need a rotary type of cutting tool, like a Dremel, RotoZip, etc. Or you could do the cutting by hand with any type of small cutting tool, it will just take longer doing it by hand. Or some people have used a narrow pointed soldering iron!

Remove the broken blend doors

Install the new Blen Dor dual control blend doors.

Replace the actuator motor.

Close the access hole - Replace the wall piece of plastic you cutout -Use foam tape or an aluminum tape to cover the groove made by cutting the wall.

Close the glove box.

It is almost as easy as what you just read, the hardest and the most time consuming thing to do is cut the access hole.

The job should take between 30 minutes to 1 ½ hours. Depending on how long it takes you to gather your tools, etc.

Before you do anything major find you hvac fuse, pull it, then put it back. It might be in the fuse box under the hood or the one inside. All mine needs is to cut the power to the havc unit then it resets.

How do calculate gear ratio for 96 Jeep Grand Cherokee?

In 1996, the 4.0L I-6 used 3.55 gearing in the axles, 3.73 for the towing package. To identify yours has the towing package, look behind the passenger side grille. If you see a mini radiator type item there, you have the towing group with 3.73 axle gears. Your Jeep will be equipped with a low pinion Dana 30 front and a Dana 35c rear.

If you have the 5.2 V-8, the axle gearing is 3.73. This would be equipped with a low pinion Dana 30 front and a Dana 44a rear.

Timing Belts and Chains

Do Jeeps have timing belts or timing chains?

The only Jeep engine that has a timing belt is the 2.4 Liter (DOHC) Vin#1 engine. All other Jeep engines have a timing chain. The belt should be changed at 120,000 miles under normal conditions and 90,000 miles under severe conditions. As this is an Interference engine and serious damage will occur if the belt breaks, I would use the severe schedule and change it at 90,000 miles. If the belt breaks it can cost you plenty.

Transmission Fluid
Chevy Malibu
Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited

Where is the transmission dipstick located on a 1998 Chevy Malibu if there is not one how do you check the fluid level?

The 1998 Chevy Malibu does not have a transmission dipstick. Instead there is a check plug located on the transaxle, near the pan, adjacent to the engine oil drain plug.

Note: the vehicle must be kept level when checking the transmission fluid level.

Place an oil container under the check plug and remove it. Observe the fluid as it drips into the pan, indicating correct fluid level. The fluid level should be at the bottom of the check hole. Double check to make sure the car is level. If no fluid drips from the check hole, some fluid should be added via the red cap. But add only a little at a time until the fluid is at the bottom of the check hole.
