1991 fleetwood flair motorhome. The ignition quit working. I took the steering wheel off and some other parts because I thought I would have to do that to replace the switch. It turned out I wouldn't have had to do that to replace it, but I found a part that was broken. I can't find any kind of a diagram to figure out what the part is that I need or what it does. It's a piece of cast metal in a semi circle near the bottom of the column and is attached to a thin rod that goes down the column. I

Hello, I am trying to replace the front speakers on my '91 ford temp. When I've removed the door cover, I unscrewed the speaker and tried to take it out. Unfortunately, it seems as the part I've unscrewed (speaker cover) is attached to the speaker itself. (note: there are no other screws) Is this speaker built in the car, or is there a way to take it out? When I pull on the speaker cover, the whole speaker "material" is being pulled along, but the magnet stays solid in the door. THANK YOU!!


If I remember right, you have to reach your hand in there and remove the clips that hold it in place. you should just be able to flip the clips. ... 1991 Ford Tempo 4 Door

I have a 69 GTO that had an aftermarket steering wheel. I'm putting a stock steering wheel back on (the one with three horn buttons on the spokes). The part with the horn buttons has a wire on it, and I can't figure out what to attach the wire to. Any help?


Just to make sure I understand the problem? You can't find the wire that goes to the horn to connect the steering wheel to? You will need to locate this wire or consider running a new one. That is what the wire is for. You may want to consider having ... Pontiac GTO

My brake went out, cylinder broke and shoes were shot to hell, we took the wheel apart, and set everything down so we could put it back in, that way it wouldn't be so much of a puzzle to put back together. but that failed and now we are having problems figuring out exavtly what parts go back in in what order on my 1981 Chevrolet Van G10

Grille has been peeling for a year now and no one as any suggestions other than just replacing it! WIth the same thing!! For the same problem to happen again???? Is there any way to get Nissan to help with this problem? I have the extended warrenty, but it is not part of the covered items. I had to research a recent repair after the dealer charged ME and I was sure it was under the extended warrenty. It was and they had to reimburse me + add the cost of the rental I had to use. They said they ca


Not much you can do for peeling chrome from a grill. (I assume it is plastic). If it is metal you can check with a chrome shop toi see what they'd charge you to rechrome it. Another option is to check with after-market auto accessories places and ... 2004 Nissan Murano

Its screwed to the front part of the wheel well, right behind the bumper. What is this plastic ball for? My repair manual for this car does not show or say anything about this. (???)

The rubber button covers on my 96 ford explorer cruise control swithes have dry rotted. I purchased a motorcraft replacement SW5919. It has a harness attached to both switches. I just need the switches but I can't figure out how to unplug the harness. I don't have the expertise to pull the whole steering wheel. To replace the switches I need to disconnect the battery and take two bolts out of the column for the air bag then just unscrew the swithces and replace. So what is the secret method to r


You will need a small screw driver to gently disconnect the switches from the harness. They are clipped on.Locate the clip side of connector and pry off gently.Good luck. ... 1996 Ford Explorer

2005 JEEP LIBERTY When the four wheel drive lever is all the way forward and down (in 2 High ) the dash light says its in part time 4 wheel. When I pull the lever to the part time position the dash light says its in full time 4 wheel High. Also grinds going into 4 wheel low. Any ideas? Kevin


This at first sounds like a simple adjustment all the way until the point you mentioned the grinding sounds coming from the differential when you go into 4 Wheel drive. Unfortunately the system used in these newer models is mostly electronic solenoi ... 2005 Jeep Liberty

I am down to putting steering wheel and instruments in a 67 mustang after a 10 year long project. I have parts, I think, but can't figure out how the steering wheel, horn ring and all the misc parts go together. The steering wheel itself is somewhat cracked and the screw holes are not exactly where they should be.


Are you installing the original steering wheel or a replacement? Screw holes shouldn't be off at all if all original parts are installed. Sounds like a replacement part may be for another model year. Double check all the steering/horn/turn signal swi ... 1966 Ford Mustang

I have a 1997 Buick Le Sabre and need to get to my engine. There is a plastic cover that I need to remove, but unable to figure out how. There is a bracket with a hook which the edge of the cover goes under, but that is the only part I can see holding it on. I do not like to put a lot of force when removing things unless I know I can do it without breaking the part. Any one know what the trick to removing this cover? Thanks Joe

It looks like something behind my rear wheel is broken; the part the brake pad is attached to; either that part or behind that part something is broken causing the wheel to wabble like its about to fall off. can u possible tell me anything from that unknowledgeable description?


Sounds like a wheel bearing. If you jack up that side of the car and the wheel flops around than the bearing is bad. It is not uncommon for these vehicles. They usually start to make a lot of noise before they get that sloppy. The bearing ... 2002 Pontiac Aztek

Loose steering Im looking to purchase an 89 GMC Step Van: I think it is a P30. My brother test drove it and said the steering is very loose; he said he had to turn the steering wheel almost all the way before it started to turn. He also said when he went around a corner that he had to turn the steering wheel all the way then he had to turn it all the way in the opposite direction to straighten back up.

Interior mirror ok so the switch is broken on the mirror and i took the main mirror part off (it came off taking out a screw) but the arm is attached to the roof with no screw showing. i've got a toyota carolla and i'm not sure i can put a universal on cause the arm that is attached to the roof would be in the way. can i glue the universal to the arm (the upper part of it is flattened)? or should i bite the bullet and bring it to the dealer????


There is a plastic trim cover where the mirror is attached to the roof. Using a suitable flat tool (like a screwdriver), pry the trim cover off, this will expose the mounting screws. ... 2000 Toyota Corolla

My son got my 2003 jeep grand cherokee stuck in the mud last night and his dim-witted friend said he could pull it out by wraping a rope through the wheel well and around the polycarb bumper! well they damaged the fuel filter assembly which was hidden inside the wheel well. It looks easily repairable but I need the parts or a schematic to identify which parts I need! -Frank


Fuel filter is mounted on top of the fuel pump (on the gas tank) Doubtful that's what was damaged. Likely you mean the fuel fill (where you put gas in) was damaged. If you need a new one you can find all those parts (inexpensive) at any scrapyard. Li ... 2003 Jeep Grand Cherokee

I noticed when i had tightened the three remaining lug nuts that as I drove off the wheel was wobbling. Is this from remaining gaps between the wheel and something else or damaged parts?


2 missing lug nuts, especially if they are side by side, could cause some wobble while driving. I would not recomend driving with missing Lugs. The stress you put on the remaining 3 could end up being to great, and the tire could end up falling off t ... 1999 Volkswagen Passat

How do you remove and replace the ignition switch in a 1995 camry?I have taken the steering wheel covers off as well as the plastic cover under the steering wheel. The key is on ACC put i can not figure out how to pull the cylinder out.


There is probably a little hole, around 1/8" diameter, on the top of where the lock cylinder goes, it could also be on the bottom. Get something long and skinny and poke it in that hole, there is a release button in there. At least that's how it is ... 1995 Toyota Camry

I have a 1994 mazda mx6 that has 1/2 of the key broken off in the key cylinder and cannot remove it. What all do I have to remove to get the cylinder out to replace it.

If the Air Bag light was on, it's a dead ringer for the "clocking" spring. If not, it could be the other circuit paths that go thru it, such as the horn and steering wheel controls. It will require the removal of the steering wheel, and installing a ... Chrysler Town and Country
