  2. I recently noticed moisture in my headlights due to a crack i was unaware of. Unfortunately, i was a bit busy at the time i noticed the condensation so i left it to sit there for a while. Right now i got the condensation problem and the crack fixed but leaving the moisture there for a while caused my daytime running lights to stop working. I went to the dealer and they asked me to buy an entire new $1500 headlight and said it’s the only way to fix it. So i was hoping someone around here might know a way to fix it without having to buy a brand new headlight over some drl’s
  3. Whether it's a worn belt or a squeaky power steering pump, we'll help you figure out that pesky noise under the hood Noises have to be one of the biggest peeves owners have about their vehicles. If it’s one that isn’t easily identifiable, that can drive the frustration level right round the bend. Engine pulley and belt noises need to be heeded (like many other automotive cacophonies) to avoid a breakdown or a more expensive repair bill. When a whining noise starts under the hood, most drivers automatically assume a new belt is needed. That might be correct, but not always: Eliminating the belt as a cause is as easy as squirting it with a shot of silicone spray, or even water. If the noise temporarily goes away when the belt is treated, that’s most likely the problem. Another helpful do-it-yourself diagnosis is to check the power steering fluid level. If it’s low and the whining noise changes noticeably when the steering is moved back and forth, the pump may be running low. Leave a power steering pump low on fluid and you can end up ruining the pump and risk damaging the steering gear itself. These systems don’t have too much fluid volume, so being even as little as half a litre low can cause problems. If a treated belt and/or steering shuffle don’t bring any noticeable changes to the whining sound, you may be dealing with a noisy alternator. Unless you have a battery/charging system tester, it’s hard to apply a load to these systems to see if the noise changes. But if you’ve got a good ear, try turning on heavy electrical demand accessories and units to increase the alternator’s load. Turn on the headlamps, rear defroster and seat heaters (if equipped) at the same time while listening to the running engine. If the noise changes, you may have an alternator bearing on the way out. Air conditioning compressors can also be a source of engine whining noise. They can easily be activated and deactivated (even in cold weather) by selecting the ‘max A/C’ setting. The problem with diagnosing a bearing or pulley noise from an A/C compressor is that even when they’re not running, they have a pulley that continues to turn. It has its own bearings in addition to the bearings internal to the compressor. Water pumps can also create bearing noises and usually, by the time their bearings are gone far enough to hear, they usually develop a noticeable amount of play. So with the engine off, locate the water pump pulley and try to move it. If you can easily move the pulley any more than a fraction of an inch, the pump is likely in need of replacement. Don’t forget: Electric cooling fans as a source of unwanted noise. This would be especially apparent if the noise only occurs during stop-and-go driving, when the fans are likely to be activated by higher coolant temperatures. Shops can use special diagnosis equipment to activate cooling fans for testing. A skilled technician can achieve the same effect by disconnecting the fan motor(s) to apply direct battery voltage to its terminals.
  4. I currently own a 1998 Chevrolet Prizm with a trunk that is dented in due to an accident. The dent isn't bad enough to make the trunk lid not functional but it is no longer waterproof and leaks into the cab after a hefty amount of rainfall, which is something I would like to get replaced. I found a 2000 Chevy Prizm in the inventory of a local pull-a-part and was wondering if anybody knew if the trunk lid from the '00 would fit the '98. I am pretty confident that it will fit because I checked the specs on both years and the cargo space was exactly the same on both but if there is a difference, I would like to know before I went down there to check it out. Thanks!
  5. I just bought a new 2000 Ford Focus ZX3 and it had some super lame monster stickers on the rear view mirror. So I took it off (just the mirror part), and scraped off the stickers. Simple enough, right? It was going well until I tried to put the mirror back onto it's ball joint. Let's just say I haven't got the mirror back on yet. This seems super easy to do but I just cannot do it. Anyone have any tips, tricks, or other methods for snapping the mirror back onto the ball joint? Thanks in advance.
