SOURCE: 2001 BMW 325 how do i charge the battery

If you look around the engine compartment you will see a sort of large silver nut on one of the inner wings. This is for the negative lead. Now if you search around a bit more you will find a sort of square black cover with an arrow type electrical sign. Lift the top off the cover and you will see a similar type nut. This is the positive. i.e. you do not need to access the battery tocharge or jump start the car.

Cheers John

SOURCE: How do you remove the rubber in the fix points to

You do not want to remove this rubber. There may not be custom designed roof bars to fit this model. If you really wanted to I guess you could use sheet metal screws to install brackets under the edges of the door sills.

My Craftsman chainsaw model 316.380200 20" 46cc automatic oiler system does not appear to be working when saw is operating. Also, all oil leaks out of saw when not in use.

take the bar off and remove the chain you will see 2 holes at the base of the bar near the sprocket end
the oil is pumped into a slot that one of those holes cover
from there it moves up a very small slot that is in the base of the groove that the chain runs in
that slot gets blocked by saw dust and prevents the oil from being picked up by the chain guide teeth and lubricating the bar
how to fix
get something like a small paint scraper and using a corner edge clean out the groove around that hole and use compressed air to blow out the debris

How do I remove the factory longitudinal roof bars on a 2006 Mitsubishi Outlander?;

you need to lift up the black plastic covers with a screwdriver or another flat tool at the front bottom side and split the one in the middle on the top - slide them away -then you should see the screws holding the rack to the rail.

How do I change a tire on a 2001 town and country

Open the hatch back. On the left-hand side is a panel that you can open in which the jack resides. Take that out.

(If you want to use the spare tire, located under the trunk space...)
You will see a plastic disc on the floor of the trunk space (where you store your luggage/groceries/etc). With a flat head screw driver pop the flat disc up & off. This will reveal a nut that you can turn to lower/release the spare tire that is directly underneath it.

If your T&C is like mine, you have a plastic cover in the middle of each alloy wheel that covers the lug nuts. This plastic cover can be popped off with the flat/nubby end of the crow bar that comes with the jack. It fits perfectly into a slot on the plastic cover.

Once you get the plastic cover off, the 5 lug nuts are revealed to you. Before you jack up the van, even a little, I would try to loosen all 5 lug nuts, just a get them going. Once the van is jacked up, it will be difficult to begin to loosen the lug nuts.

With the nuts loosened, set up the jack so that once you begin to turn it, the slot in the jack fits right into the frame of the van. You will see the frame that fits the slot in the jack between the front tires and back tires, on either side of the van.

Once the tire you want to change is fully lifted off of the ground, loosen the rest of the lug nuts and remove the tire. Replace it and reverse the order of what you just did. Get the 5 lug nuts onto the new tire, but only snug them up by hand. Once the tire touches the ground as the jack is lowered, then you can fully tighten the lug nuts with the crowbar.

Hope that helps!

Try with this procedure...
1) Start with opening the driver's side door and lowering the window. Remove lock lever (1A).

How do you loosen the serpentine belt

That wasn't right though. There is a 1/2 slot for a 1/2 inch breaker bar and when two holes are lined up you stick a drill bit or similar peice through to lock it in place till you get the belt routed then pull back alittle bit on the breaker bar to remove tension from the drill bit . Remove the drill bit and release tension on breaker bar and remove it to put tension on the belt.Then check alignment , positioning, routing of the belt visually.
