I am needing to put on an entire back hatch with window back on 2002 Mercury Mountaineer. I was hit in the rear and it broke my rear window and dented and banged up the entire back end. I have bought the replacement part and have it painted, now I need to know how to take off the banged up entire rear hatch and put on a new one. Thank you tons. Billy & Stacy


Does the hatch open up electrically??? If not, then just take off the hinge bolts and struts, hold the new door in place, re install the bolts ( without tightening them completely) and then shut the door and see where it has to be adjusted correctly ... 2002 Mercury Mountaineer

On my 2002 Volvo v70xc i can't seem to get the driveshaft to let go of the transfer case and the rear differential. I've removed the 6 allen bolts at the front of it, the 6 at the rear, and the 2 holding the bearing ring in the middle ahead of the U-joint. I've removed all necessary brackets, loosened and moved the exhaust to one side. Still no luck. What is the trick? Knock them loose at the ends with a hammer?

Rear end I need a new rear end in my '01 Dodge Ram 1500. The Dodge dealership estimated $1600. Another mechanic said they didn't include some parts needed and it would really be more like $2000. He said he could do it for $1400 ($950 for a used rear end from junk yard + labor & oil). But he wants to change it to a "non positive traction". He told me the rear end from the junk yard is $950. Another mechanic got a price from a junk yard of $450! Or he could probably fix it for $350, depending on w

My 2006 Mercury Mariner was rear ended yesterday and afterwards my ABS light came on. The hit wasn't very bad but I didn't have my brake pushed in as much as I could. I knew that I was about to be rear ended and I wanted to prevent me from hitting the car in front me. Afterwards I noticed what felt like a slip when I stopped. I just need to know what may be wrong and if it is probably a result of the accident.


COULD BE THE WHEEL SENSORS,CHECK THEM FIRST,BUT THE ABS SENSOR LIGHT COULD ALSO COME ON IF YOU STOPED QUICKLY,I WOULD RECOMMEND DISCONNECTING THE NEG BATTERY FOR 10SEC .\012\012\012\012\012\012\012\012 ... 2005 Mercury Mariner

Changed the rear end of 1989 Suburban (4 wheel drive). Put on new brake lines for the rear brakes. The brake pedal is hard. There is no brake fluid going to the rear brakes and the front brakes seem to build up pressure - I assume that is what is causing the brake pedal to be hard. When open the front bleeders the pedal drops to the floor. There is a part on the frame of the truck where two brake line intake holes and two lines that go out. The one that goes out to the rear brakes does not
