There are no screws on this speaker. This speaker cabinet is two pieces. The Bottom plate has all the internals fixed to it and the sides and top are glued to the bottom piece. It takes some doing but the glue bond can be broken. The wire connector posts (Red and Black) connects directly to the vertically mounted soundboard. These post are not soldered so if that electronic soundboard jostles out of its frame rails, the post will lose connection. The post assembly snaps out and I would remove it prior to taking the cabinet apart. It is all very simple and obvious if you get the cabinet open.

It may not be only wires loose; the speaker(or speakers) may be damaged.

The common 'dynamic' speaker has a centered magnet in an assembly that extends the field of the magnet around a coil of wire on a form called the 'voice coil' that is firmly attached to the cone which moves in and out to 'pump' air and produce sound.
The clearances (gap) between the magnet assembly and the voice coil that sits in a narrow space between the magnet and the outer field piece is very small and critical.

Once positioned in the factory, glue is used to keep the field assembly from slipping and rubbing against the voice coil.

A strong shock will break the glue bond and, if severe enough, clamp the voice coil so it cannot move freely any more.

Since the Bose is a quality product, the cabinet may be assembled with glue and screws that are concealed.

If you know someone with a simple multimeter, they may be able to check at the terminals to see if there is any continuity from the terminals to the speaker.
If it doesn't have any, then perhaps only a wire is broken between the terminals and the speakers.
There is with high probability also a filter inside that separates the frequency range and sends the signal to separate speakers that produce different ranges of sound.

My 06 malibu rear seat will not go down due to stuck switch


Push on the seat to the rear while pulling the cable release. Sounds like latch is adjusted too tight. If this works make adjustment before putting the seat back up. Open trunk & you should also be able to get to the speakers and the latch for the seat back. May require a screwdriver or something narrow & long to push on the latch arm while another person pushes & pulls the seat back to unlatch.

2010 vw cc trunk will not open from remote or from inside latch


Ran into the same issue with our 2010CC (not Jetta) as in one of the posts. our problem was both the trunk wouldnt open and the rear fog light wouldnt iluminate. traced wires back to compartment that houses battery. in that space the wiring harness from the trunk lid terimates in multiple conectors. before they do that the wires pop out of the trunk lid support. The support had worn the wires through and 3 of them had been cut through. There are 10 brown wires in gthe bunch of 3 -4 different sizes. Check that area for conection problems.

Hi i own a 1998 chevy siliverado and my brakes are not working adequately, im not losing break fluid so im unsure of the problem


If the pedal seems really hard to push, you could have a bad brake booster. If the pedal feels OK but there is not much action from the brakes, there could be an internal leak in your master cylinder. If your vehicle is equipped with Antilock Brakes, it could be a bad Hydraulic Control Unit.

1997 Jeep Grand Cherokee Brake Problem. Brake Pedal Falls To The Floor. Calipers were replaced twice,master cylinder,brake hoses and pads. Systemm has been bleed numerous times - no air but the brake...


This may sound dum but its been done a few times and is a simple mistake , the bleeder screw is up top, with the caliper on the bleeder screw should be up top, if not then calipers are on the wrong side, it sounds like air in the system, also you pumped the pedal up to push out the piston so pads hit rotor after bleeding,i dont see anything else, if the pedal is good with pinched lines at caliper then it got to be calipers are wrong or on the wrong side and the bleeder is not atop caliper,also you bleed the rear also? these trucks and cars use left caliper and rt rear on one system of the master and rt front and left rear on one side, let me know about the caliper, heres a picture to show you what i mean. hope this helpsjohnjohn2_23.jpg

HELP MY HARD DRIVE HAS GONE!


Ok to understand this , you dropped a 1 TB hard-drive external hard drive on the floor? Well considering that it is a external, the cases in most externals are meant to take a beating as well as the hard-drive it self. There is two possiblities I can think of, what could of happened. When the Hard-Drive hit the floor, it could of is disconnected the connection on the hard-drive itself inside the casing, which you will have to pop it open and reseat it. Or the hardrive, arm inside the hard-drive it self snapped or is misplaced, which is unrepairable. Open up the casing and looking for the hardrive it self. Towards the back of the hard-drive is where the connection of th drive is, it is eather sata or orginal set up with his pins based. Take the connection off and put it back on and see if that works, if it didnt, best advise would be is take in in and have the drive tested, see if its still operable.

My jeep wont start. i turn the key no crank, full battery. any ideas. tried to jump it nothing.diconected and reconeccted the batery still nothing. car was starting perfect no problem. Checked the shifter...


Just, Because you removed the battery connections and reinstalled them
will not repair a bad battery conection. Sounds like you have a bad conection at the battery. You'll need to remove the battery ends and clean
them with, a wire brush or a battery cleaning tool. Always, remove the NEG
conection FIRST,then the POS. After cleaning install the POS FIRST,Then
the NEG. Also, I believe there is a small conector on one of the cables.
Be sure to clean that conection also.
You, did not say if the lights are working.

How to remove seat cushion for repair


Since you mention two front seats, I assume you have bucket seats. These are pretty easy to remove, just look under the seats for the 4 bolts that go into the floor. You may have to feel under the floor for the bottom end of each bolt to get a wrench on it.

The rear seat is a bit more tricky. Remove the bottom cushion first, by pushing down HARD on the front edge of the seat (SIT on it!), and then, while pushing the front edge down, also push back on the front edge of the cushion - it will move back about an inch, and that will release the hold down hook that holds it in place. Then you can just lift out the seat cushion.

The rear seat backrest has two bolts that you can get at after you remove the seat cushion - they go into the floor under the bottom edge of the rear seat backrest. Take those two bolts all the way out, and then grab the rear seat backrest, push it back toward the trunk while you lift up on the bottom edge. Don't pull it away from the metal backing, just slide it up toward the rear window - that will release it from the holding hooks at the top of the rear seat cushion and the whole cushion can be lifted out of the car.

If your car has a center console in front, or a speaker grille in the middle of the rear seat, you will probably have to look around for the mounting hardware - the console is bolted to the floor, and you will probably have to take it apart or remove the shift knob to get it out. The rear seat speaker grille, if it is between the two sides of the rear seat backrest will be bolted to the metal braces behind the rear seat. You may have to climb in through the trunk to get at those.

Just a word of caution regarding Mustangs: The floors are an important structural part of the car, since it has no frame - if the floors are rusted, the car may very well be unsafe to drive - I advise you to have it inspected at a frame shop to see if it is able to be made safe to drive before you spend a bunch of money on a losing project.

I am using a Bostitch MFN200 Manual Flooring Nailer and we are having some trouble with it. The cleats go almost all the way into the floor board but are still sticking up about an inch out of the board....


2 things come to mind. I've installed Wood Floors for the last 5 years.

Make sure you have enough Air pressure running to the stapler,
and Second, Whack the hell out of it. You can be rough with it. Their designed to take a beating

When u hit it with the mallet, youre opening a valve which shoots the piston and drives the staple into the boards. hit it not hard enough, not enough air is being sent to the piston to drive it fully.
