How do you adjust the headlights on a 2004 Toyota Sienna?

If your talking about the vertical alignment, there are setting screws on the back of the headlight assy. It looks like a 1/4" head bolt with a straight slot in in it and a 3/4" wide black or grey large serrated plastic washer under the head of the bolt. If you need dimensions then do a search on "www.siennaclub.org"

Where is the oil filter located on a Rover 75 SE?

Rover 75 2lt diesel Oil Filter LocationGood question - fooled me for some time . I can only answer for a Rover 75 2lt diesel - the one with the BMW engine. The filter is a paper cartridge type located on top of the engine instead of the more usual metal cartridge type which one screws in place. If you open the bonnet and look left of centre just behind the radiator you will see the yellow oil level dipstick. The filter is housed in the black plastic circular housing just behind and slightly below the dipstick. Not the bigger tank elevated to the left of the dipstick. The housing has a 36mm plastic nut on top which is a bit of a pig to undo unless you have a 36mm socket. Unscrew and take off with some kitchen roll to hand. Paper oil filter element will be seen and can be lifted out and replaced.

Do take care on refitting screw cap. You will note on the cap a recommended torque of 25.5 Nm. I don't usually bother but do take care not to overtighten and crack, or undertighten and loose oil.

Paper elements are nice and cheap.

on rover 75 1.8 ltr petrol filter is just above drain plug which is on front of sump

Power Steering
Rover 400 Series

How do you change the power steering belt on a rover 218sd on a L plate?

Vehicles with automatic tensioners Park the vehicle on a level surface and turn the steering to full left hand lock. Disconnect the battery. Fit a 13mm spanner to the tensioner pivot bolt and use it to rotate the whole tensioner assembly down and away from the engine so that the tension on the belt is relieved. Insert a 4mm rod or twist drill bit through the centre of the pivot bolt and engage it with the corresponding hole in the assembly backplate, this will lock the assembly allowing the spanner to be removed. ensure the rod or twist drill bit is fully engaged before removing the spanner. Release the drivebelt from the power steering pump and crankshaft pulleys and remove it from the engine.

Refitting Pass the new belt over the cranshaft and power steering pulleys making sure it is sitting in the Vee grooves properly. Manouvre the belt over the tensioner pulley. Using the 13mm spanner take the tension off the spring and remove the 4mm rod or twistdrill bit. slowly release the tensioner assembly until it contacts the drive belt. Using a spanner or wrench on the crankshaft pulley bolt turn the crankshaft through one full revolution (spark plugs out will make it easier to turn). This allows the belt tension to be evenly distributed and the belt is fully engaged in the grooves.

Petrol with manual tensioner Chock up front wheels and disconnect battery. Slacken the the drivebelt pulley spindle. then roate the adjuster bolt (situated on the underside of the pulley assembly) to relieve all tension from the drivebelt. Release the the belt from the steering pump and cranshaft pulleys. reftting is reverse of above but tension on a new belt needs to be 5.5mm - 8.5mm deflection or 7.5mm to 8.5mm if old belt is re-used.

Diesel engines.

Disconnect battery. Chock up front wheels off the ground. working through the right hand wheel arch fit a 15mm spanner to the tensioner pulley bolt and rotate whole assembly clockwise to relieve tension. Hold the tensioner in this position and remove the drive belt. Refitting is the reverse of the above. take tension from pulley by rotating clockwise, hold in position, fit belt to all pulleys, slowly let tension pulley move back anticlockwise. Recommends turning engine using spanner on crankshaft pulley bolt to make sure evenly seated, not easily done on a diesel engine.

Were is the thermostat on rover 400 diesel?

The thermostat is located behind the engine radiator and fan unit. It is located inside a large plastic housing which looks like it can be split into two. It has a single coolant hose attached to one end and a two way split at the other end. This housing will probably be black.

A couple of things to bear in mind though. It is a nightmare to disconnect all the hoses attached to the thermostat housing. you will have to take out the fan unit(very simple) to give extra access, also you will need to gain access from under the car to undo 1 or 2 clips. it will be a good idea to replace all jubilee clips with new ones.

Make sure you have an identical replacement because if you split this thermostat housing it will not go back together again. It is one whole unit. I bought mine from Land Rover!

Check Engine Light
Toyota Camry

How do you turn off the check engine light without having your car serviced?

on a lot of cars u can just unhook one of the battery cables for a few minutes and the light will stay out.

The check engine light is illuminated because there is a problem with one or more of the control devices on the engine. A responsible way of having this taken care of, would be to take it to a shop where they can repair the vehicle.

You can go to autozone, they will read the code for you, then then to clear it. If it keeps coming back I'd go to a garage at that point.

How do you replace wing mirror on rover 400?

You need to remove the top half of the door panel. The speaker housing should then pop off from the inside of the door. This should expose 3 bolts, which need to be removed to remove the mirror (if electric mirrors, wiring also needs to be unclipped). To refit new mirror, simply reverse the above process.

Why won't Rover 45 rear window demister work?

Check the fuse, behind the drivers storage cubby (below and to the right of the steering wheel). Check the connection of the wiring to the rear window. Examine the demister circuit covering the rear window for any breaks. This is the usual place for any faults. A circuit board mending pen can be bought from electronics stores, that may repair faulty demister tracks. (Rover 400)
