Having problems with your 1985 Volkswagen Quantum ?

On my 1985 VW Quantum, part of the headlight adjustment screw assembly is broken. It is the plastic piece that is at the screw head. Would a generic headlight adjustment screw work? or does it need to be this specific part?

I have a 2008 jeep commander...the blinkers,wipers both front and rear, headlight brights and running light adjustment on blinker lever stopped working at the same time. meanwhile the headlights come on automatically with ignition start up and the running lights, brake lights as well as back up lights work.

Per diagnostic codes i have replaced CTS and MAF on 1993 Mazda 626 2.5 6cyl, now it stalls and quits at a stop, does this have to do with clearing the codes after the work is done, does the computer need more time to adjust? The car drove fine after the replacement parts, one recommendation was to drive at least 20 miles under multiple conditions, after about 25 miles i filled up the tank, and then i got about 5 miles and it stalled quit and wont start, maybe an adjustment on the throttle screw,

Drivers Seat Track part need Is the seat track specific for the Mark VIII OR will another model's seat track work? (i.e. T'bird, et al) Worst case scenario...is there a manual seat model that would line up with the existing seat rails, even as a short term fix?

I was just wanting to know what the ignition switch does and controls and how much it will cost to have it fixed? My girlfriends car needs a lot of work. The gas gauge doesn't work, the car dies in the middle of the road at times, sometimes the car has a problem starting, the tie rod is wore out, and needs a hub-assembly. Also, the motor mount needs to be replaced. I was wondering how much would all this cost and where would I get the parts and where would I need to go and have it all fixed.

2009 Equinox LS - I can't drive it at night because every other opposing driver flashes his bright lights thinking mine are on High. But my work requires me to drive at night and jerks are flashing their high beams at me at the last second. I read recently where someone commented that the Equinox needed "more right side beam" which makes me wonder if adjusting the headlights would even help or if this is a design flaw on this model? My low beams "seem" to point straight ahead and left as opposed

I'm trying to replace the passenger side front running light (part of the assembly to the left of the headlight) on a 1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo.

I need to adjust the headlights on my 1996 Nissan Sentra. There are no screws around the front of the headlight to make the adjustments so there must be another way but I don't have an owners manual. I did change the bulbs but need to adjust them. Thank you for any assistance you can provide.

The keyless fob, on the end of the key had the small screw come lose & its been lost, so I need to ask where I can obtain a new screw. Also with that screw loose, or missing the black plastic button fell off & is lost. So I need to ask where I can but that part. Or where I could buy an old key so that I could take the parts off it. I don't want to try the dealer because I know they will be way too expensive. Any info would be appreciated.

2007 Chevy W3500 tiltmaster, headlights- Since purchasing the truck new, I have not been able to adjust the headlights properly.  Dealer supposedly replaced the right side assembly, but the lamp still flops around in the housing.  The owners manual shows a vertical and horizontal adjustment screw, but there seems to be only a horizontal adjustment, and the problem is with the vertical.  I was wondering if there is an older or another headlight assembly that would provide the proper adjustment.

1994 Toyota Pickup 22RE engine. Before I bought the factory manual, I adjusted the idle by adjusting the throttle stop screw, then i found out that the idle is adjusted with an air bleed screw. I need to know how to get the throttle stop back to the original position. I assume that there should be a specific size gap between the throttle plate and the throttle body, but the factory manual does not provide that value. It tells how to adjust the throttle position sensor, but not the physical throt

96 Honda Civic. In cold weather, headlights won't come on unless high/low dimmer switch is pulled towards driver. As long as the switch is held in that position, the headlights work. After a couple of minutes, the headlights will continue to work normally, but if the switch is released too soon, the headlights go off. I was told it is the dimmer switch, but I have been told that it is part of a 'combo switch' and the whole thing needs to be replaced and I have been told that it is possible to

I need to know what a complete lower arm set up looks like on a 1990 Riviera. It's in this one guy's shop & he's saying that I need a new radius arm. But my friend who works @ a Chevrolet dealership went on the GM online parts site and no "radius" anything pops up. And a veteran GM mechanic said that it would be the "control arm." The car is undriveable because the wheel is pressed up against the wheel well or else I would take it up to the Chevrolet lot myself. Besides wanting to know what the
