Volkswagen Polo window stuck down, how to get the window back up again?

December 25th, 2010 · No Comments

It’s my drivers side window, so I can’t secure the car or go anywhere until its fixed! I don’t want to do it again, but if I press the down button the window disappears completely. Then when you press up, the window rises almost enough to grab hold of (but not quite!), and won’t go any further.
I’m not super technical, so any advice in basic english is much appreciated!

My father-in-law just accidentally broke the rear left hand side tail light on my 2003 530i. Using Bavauto.com as a guide, it appears that I need to purchase part #63 21 6 902 529. If I buy this part, can somebody give me some directions on how to replace it? I’m not very handy, but can follow good instructions.

Mazda Miata Colored Gauge Face Set Instructions

August 18th, 2010 · No Comments

We know how terrifying it is to even think about breaking into that sacred area of your car, the instrument cluster. What if I scratch the plastic or break a needle? I’m here to tell you, it’s not that hard to customize your dash. All you need is a little patience and a couple of hours. You’ll feel like a pro when your done and you’ll be able to show off your accomplishment to your friends. In preparation for the job you’ll need to have a clean, uncluttered workspace. Don’t try to do this in the car. Use your kitchen table if you have to. Place a clean towel on the work surface. Lay it out like an operating room. For tools, you’ll need a set of jeweler’s screwdrivers, a #2 Philips head screwdriver, a small thin flat bladed screwdriver, an X-Acto knife or new single edge razor blade and some paint to paint then needles. Start with a full tank of gas. It is also a good idea to make a pencil mark on the gauge faces to show exactly where the needles are positioned when the car is running and up to temperature.

90-97 Mazda Miata NA Flush Mount Headlight Kit Installation Guide

August 17th, 2010 · No Comments

Each factory headlight is bolted to the car by only (3) nuts. Once the (3) nuts are unscrewed the headlight will be able to be removed from where it is bolted. In order to completely remove the headlight from the car you will have to unplug the factory wiring harness from the back of the headlight. To accomplish this remove the 4 screws holding the black plastic surround while the headlight is up. Loosen the four bolts holding the headlight lid on the assembly. Once removed, you will be able to gain access to the headlight to unplug the socket and associated clips. Now you can remove the headlight from the car. Below I will walk you through this entire process.
