The front licence plate bracket on a Civic consists of 3 parts. The first is the part your dealing with. Inside the bumper there should be plates with nuts welded to it. Number 4 in the picture, 2 required. The only way to get at it is to remove the bumper fascia (plastic cover). In a civic this is pretty easy. There are only a hand full of bolts and push ...

I plowed with a Chevy 1500 and a Ford F250. You could definitely feel the weight of the plow more on the smaller 1500 compared to the F250. The 1500 would squat quite a bit when the plow was lifted. The plow (a Western brand) was professionally installed on both trucks, and the only issues we ever had were electrical with the plow controls, the same kind of ...

Ah yes, those pesky little battery terminals. They ain't the same. The one labelled "+" (usually red) is connected to everything electrical in the car, while the one labelled "-" (usually black), only goes to a couple of bolts here and there. It would make sense, one would think, to disconnect the one connected to all the stuff, wouldn't it? Well, it doesn'...

I wanted to fit the brackets on the smaller seat, behind the drivers side (in a UK, right hand drive car). For my late 2005 model Focus, Mark II I think, UK registration "XX54" there was nothing on the door side hinge to lever up with a screwdriver (as per many instructions out there), instead the back seats came out according to these instructions on the ...

The nut you are referring to is meant to be welded in place. The bolt then threads into and out of this nut without it moving. What you have run in to is that the bolt is so rusted in the nut, that it broke the welds and now the nut is spinning. The bad news is that they don't make special tools for welded nuts. A set of locking pliers sometimes called ...

I always use anti-seize whenever I'm installing spark plugs of whatever type for several reasons: If installing spark plugs into aluminum heads, it helps prevent pulling the threads out with the spark plug during removal. It seals the threads to help keep the combustion gasses inside the cylinder. It helps conduct heat. It better grounds the spark plug to ...

As@ mac has stated a plow will fit and the truck will push snow. The primary considerations are how often and how long are you going to plow. The longer and more frequently you plow the more the suspension and driveline parts will be stressed. If you are just doing a few driveways you should have no problems. If you plan to plow commercially for long ...

It's ok to use the lube if you know what you are doing. Both NGK and BRP are correct, but it's important to understand where the disagreement in these recommendations comes from. First of all, let's see what is good about using lube: Easier to remove the spark plug Less chance of thread damage, because it's easier to insert the plug Then, why wouldn't we ...

If there's a power supply then more than likely yes, check the voltage required for the dash cam against the voltage supplied in the ceiling console first though, if the voltages are the same you could splice into the wires for the interior lights(presume it has them in the ceiling console). If not you could do what I did and get an extra long cable for the ...

For fitting ISOFIX (LATCH in the US) to a European Mk2 Ford Focus (2005-2010) my steps were as follows. Note that this is for a UK-registered vehicle with the single-split rear seat behind the driver. No removal of seat belts or any other bolts should be required. Disclaimer - this is my DIY attempt, I'm not a qualified mechanic so please only carry the ...

I think you have an option to either use the custom installed hitch by Toyota or an aftermarket hitch. It's your choice. The after market hitch will help you tow even more weight maybe. Toyota of course will tell you that theirs is the best because they want you to buy it but the choice is dependent on you. I would go for the aftermarket hitch because they ...

You have a lot of questions. I won't be able to answer them all. I will say I have this motor sitting in my shop and have owned a few of these, TL/SV based. Should I be adding any lubricants to anything? Yes, use assembly lube. It's not a disaster if you don't. Assembly lube would typically apply connecting rod and main bearings but it won't hurt ...

I've done a quick search and found this image for a 1991 Corolla, manual, sedan, for the canadian market. You have 2 bolts to remove, the one on the top of the pillar and the one that attach both end of the seat belt. They may be hidden Under some plastics panel. It should be an easy task but make sure to tighten the bolt back!!

I was a Service Manager for and Acura dealership. Also an ASE master tech. Put the boot in hot water for a few minutes. This will soften the boot, making it more pliable, allowing you to push/slide it in place. They are very tight so they will seal well and have a ridge to help keep them in place. You can put a little grease on he inner lip of the boot, but ...

Sometimes the floor mats are held in place with the same screws which hold bits of plastic trim in place. Even if there aren't actual screw holes you may need to loosen bits of trim to get them back easily. If this is more trouble than it seems worth you could instead carefully cut off the flap and use something like double sided tape, self adhesive Velcro ...

It's possibly viable The 1cm of fork that is available to mount a clip-on to is a concern Locktite will not make it any safer Options Depending on how invested you are in clip-on's you could use standard cafe bike handlebars and mount them to your risers just like current handlebars are mounted. Back in the 80's we used to just flip handlebars over in ...

I have an '08 Azera (which I mentioned in the comments). The Azera has a powered antenna, but not the electric kind which goes up in down. It's an antenna which resides in the back glass. It has a power booster which must be powered in order for the radio to pick up radio stations. In the Pioneer wiring harness, it should be a blue w/ white stripe wire (one ...

One good option which won't require are drilling or other permanent changes to the interior fabric of the vehicle would do to use a headrest camera mount. This is a device which attaches to the headrest supports of the driver or front passenger seat and presents a standard camera mount. These mounts are specifically designed for the exact application you ...

The simple answer is "Yes". It seems you are wanting them to run completely independent? If so, they'll easily do that. Power for your Android device will be slightly problematic, as you'll need to have 5vdc power for it, which means a power adapter. The stereo head unit should run off the same wiring as the stock head unit did, which will make that much ...

There are several dashcams on the market which have two cameras, and mount over the rear-view mirror. One of the cameras is turned around to cover the interior of the car. Taxi drivers use them a lot. Just because you happen to have a battery operated camera doesn't mean it's the best choice for the job.

No need. If it's a new plug finger tighten it then give it half a turn more with a wrench, back it out then tighten quarter turn after finger tight. If your re-using a plug then just finger tighten and then quarter turn. You can clean the excess lube on the threads in the head with some carb cleaner or solvent on a lint free cloth, wrap it around a ...

Here’s what worked for me (I simply fastened the plate directly to the bumper: Supplies: ‘license kit’ @ four 1/4” x 5/8” slotted hex screws and four rectangular plastic nuts Drill 2 holes into bumper using 1/2” bit, depth only needs to be about 1/2” snap the plastic ‘nut’ into the holes using slotted hex screws, fasten plate
