I haven't found anywhere on the net where this info. is.
The body shops pay annual fees for this information from several sources. Possibly if your nice and approach with a sense of humor and humility the shop you were at will pull it up and give it to you. Some shops are helpful others not.
If they don't want to share either A. they are super busy or
and it's not a good time or B. They don't want you to install
cuz they are looking to make a buck.
But it's not like your'e going into business for yourself.
I was a PBE (paint, body & equipment) instructor for automotive and OEM for 39 years.
p.s. if you are taking it back to the shop that did the work
try this approach.
" I'm trying to do this but I think I'm messing it up any ideas?"
Hope this helps let me know if they are jerks I'll get the information from one of my local shops. May take a day or two though. My "honey do list" is long. :)

You would need to ask a dealer on the specs or contact the car makers . Some thing they would know .

    Paul has a good suggestion too. If the dealer has a body shop they likely will share info cuz they want your other future business.

SOURCE: How to loosen alternator tension on a 2003 Lancer

I have not seen this vehicle but, the center bolt or nut that holds the tensioner to the block is backed off two turns first.
Then the adustment bolt (most are accesed from under the vehicle) can be adjusted to give enough slack to install the new belt.
If this is still too tight, remove one of the two or two of the three bolts that mount the Alternator to allow for another 1/8" and install the belt.
Then remount the Alternator.
Then readjust the tension bolt.
Finish with the bolt or nut that mounts the tensionor to the block.
good luck.

SOURCE: spark plugs

you really do not need a diagram to locate the spark plugs. If you can see the high tension wires (thick electrical wires) connected to the distributor and to the to of the engine, just follow it up to the top of the engine where you can pull it out. It should reveal a whole in which inside is the spark plug. If your engine has a cover on the top (made of hard plastic), you may have it removed to gain better access.

SOURCE: I have a 2004 mitsubishi lancer es and need to

To move the alternator you have to loosen the bolt that holds the bottom of the alternator. Then loosen the bolt on the block that the long adjuster bolt goes through. Now you can turn the long adjuster bolt to move the alternator. To adjust the power steering bolt, you need to loosen the bolt in the center of the pulley (Holds it in place, Goes through the center of the pulley). Now you can turn the long adjuster bolt on the front of the motor to tighten or loosen the front belt.

Is it possible to fix the front bumper, hood, and hood frame (or engine compartment) on a 2003 toyota celica? Or is it totalled. (The front driver's side of the car was slammed into a wall. Everything else...


you can replace the whole front end if you have to,you will need to make sure the main part of the chassis is square and plumb before you start,if its bent/out of true you will need a jig to straighten up the main "box" (now you starting to get really expensive)basically if the roof/doors are as "new"then replace as much as you need to.the wings,bonnet front end are all bolt on,its only the inner wing/front fingers that need welding.and all the hang ons..
if you have full bodyshop facilities,your 1/2 way there...
NOT something to do in your garage...

I have a 2003 Coachmen Freedom Class C. I want to


I have a Coachman "Road Trec" class C and I installed my scissor jacks near the frame member for the front just to the rear of the bumper. I installed a length of angle iron from the left frame rail to the right frame rail then installed the jacks on the angle iron as close to the frame a possible.
On the rear I cut a piece of 3 " angle iron and bolted it to the outside of the frame then mounted the jack on the angle iron for each side.

Rear bumper knocked


depending on the year. If it is a 95 to 99 all you have to do is take the 3 push clips out of the wheel weel. Pull back the plastic linerand there is a 10 mm going in the 1/4 panel. Take the interior trim out there 4 to 6 10mm in there. Then jack the car up crawl underneth and there are two 14mm bolts on each of the frame rails. With all them out the bumper will pull right off with the reinforcment still attatched. Take the plastic push clips out and you can separate the bumper and reinforcment.

Front bumper absorber


It will bolt on the front frame rails but unless you also use the older bumper cover it will not hold or function properly or safely with the newer style bumper cover.
