SOURCE: how to remove upper/ lower ball joints on 1990 GMC Suburban 4x4

hit the steering knuckle where the ball joint shaft goes through it while u have the wedge/pickle fork inserted, u do this on the round side of the knuckle, this is what is called a "Morse Taper" hitting it distorts the hole a little and that lets the joint pop free. You need at least a 5 pound ball pen for this to work..

SOURCE: how do i remove the front wheel of my honda 2000

The front brake is a drum brake system. If you have removed the axle the drum should pull out of the hub and just hang from the brake cable.

SOURCE: How to remove the damper

Good evening, unfortunately this is something we run into all the time. There are a couple ways to go about it, first you can try soaking it every hour for a day with wd40 or something similar. You can also get a punch (or chisel) and sharply hit the metal bushing that is around the bolt to hopefully break it free from the rust that is holding the bolt to the bushing. Last effort is apply heat to the bolt as to not heat up the rubber around the bushing then put the nut back on the end til you even up with the threads and start tapping on it while turning. One of those top few steps is usually successful when we do them at the shop. Glad to help, and any more questions please ask.

SOURCE: I have a disposal thagt seems to have a jam or

Hello, W/D here. The short answer is yes, but the greatest caution must be taken.

MAKE SURE that the power is off the disposer before proceeding. Trip the breaker and test to be certain that there is no possibility of the disposer coming on. Also make sure that the wall switch is "OFF".

There several ways of attacking the problem.
With the power removed, hold the seal open (in the sink drain) and look inside for any debris. Usually, you can see whatever it is that is causing the noise. A flashlight is very helpful. Remove any debris that you can see with long needle nose pliers, and test. If you see debris, and don't have needle nosed pliers, try using reverse wound tape on a stick ti stick the debris and pull it out. You should never place your hands directly into the line of fire. You coulg get cut, hurt or stuck, and it just isn't worth chancing it. Usually, you will see a piece of plastic or bone. If you have kids, look for an xbox controller. Inspect very carefully. A sliver of glass is the hardest to detect, and makes a LOT of noise.
(If you have the allen wrench that came with the grinder, you can also rotate the motor and grinder blades from the bottom with the power off). These are available at Ace/Lowe's, etc.
Using the light, inspect the grinding portions exposed in the disposer. Look for damaged or missing parts. You can use a long screwdriver with your light to make sure that the grinder parts operate freely. Use the pliers to remove any freed-up debris.
Once the problem is isolated and corrected, fill a pot with water, and place it in the sink. Get a medium sized bowl of ice, and place it in the sink as well. Power the unit back up. Dump the ice into the drain (you may need to use a wooden spoon or similar to get the ice in), start the unit, and chase the ice with the water. The aim here is to use the ice to sweep around in the disposer, and then flush everything out with the water. If all of this doesn't solve the problem, it would be wisest to remove the disposer, and take it outside. Give it a good flushing over a pan and rotate the blades from the bottom as previously described. If all of this still results in noise, it may be that your disposer bearings are going out. Usually, though, they leak thru when this is the issue. My money is on debris, and hopefully, this will fix your problem.
Best regards, W/D

What is the meaning of transport blocked in Hobart Dishwasher?

I assume you are referring to a commercial rack dishwasher rather than domestic? Transport blocked means either the conveyor has jammed and twisted the cut out switch on the motor or the table end switch is activated or faulty.

Staples jammed.How can I unjam and open it?

Hi Alan:
You don't specify what make it is, or if it is powered.
If air, disconnect from supply, remove any staples from magazine, and attempt to discharge.
There will be allen head screws holding the firing mechanism assembly together. Always treat it as if it could discharge.
Carefully loosen the screws and try to remove the jammed staples with a small screwdriver. You may need to actually dis-assemble it to get it unjammed.
Clean parts, oil, and re-assemble.
Should be fine.

Replacing impeller

Remove the back cover of the motor to expose the plastic fan. Find the c clip that holds it on the motor shaft. Remove the nut that is on the front side of the impeller. I used a vise grips to hold the shaft from spinning on the side where the fan was. A small 2 or 3 arm puller hooked under the front shoulder of the impeller and that is all you need to do.

I have a Honda CB600, the front fork is stuck inside the slider?

Your bike probably has a recessed bolt at the bottom of the fork that holds the inner stem. Remove it and the stem should come free. Go to brand/parts.aspx to see an exploded parts diagram of your bike.

6 CD Changer Jammed (Audi A4)

You may have to remove the unit and disassemble it to remove the CD that evidently is jammed inside. If your unit has a removable magazine that holds the CDs, the magazine probably is stuck.

Three-year old Maytag dishwasher is making terrible buzzing sound while still squirting water. Wondering if disposal on unit is jammed, and if so, how to unjam it.

Got the washer fixed by removing parts until I got down to the chopper, which was jammed by a small, plastic ice cream spoon. Was relatively easy to fix. Keeping the screws with the parts they secured was helpful.
