SOURCE: 2003 CTS rear window repair

well i have the same problem my Left side rear window came off the track so i took the door panel off. The door panel comes off by taking two srews out that are behind the lower handel off the door. The upper silver handel has a black peace off plastic behind it it is held on by clips. also you have to take the little peace of the lock thing that pops up. After you get the two screws out grad the door panel below the speaker and give it a good pull once it pops out you can take the peace out thats behing the silver handle. After you get the door panel to pop out you have to left it up. I think i need new parts so i will take it to the dealer. the door works with a pully and a cable the cable in my door is all twisted up.

SOURCE: how do i remove the

Hi, if you have power windows start by disconnecting your negative battery cable. Then you need to locate and remove the screws that hold your interior door handles in place (they may be hidden by snap in, or snap on clips). Once you remove the screws that hold the door handles, remove any wire connectors to the handles, if they're not power you will need a small hook (kinda like a knitting needle) to remove the window crank. A manual window crank is held in place by a clip on the base. Slide the hook behind the base and remove the clip. The door panel itself, is held on by snap in clips, and you will need a small pry bar to pull them from the door (try to get as close to, or directly under the clips to prevent them from tearing out of the door panel). Once the clips are removed from the door, pull the panel upward to remove it from the door.

Install in reverse.

How do i change the parking light bulb on a 2003 park avenue?

The entire licence plate and tail light assembly needs to be removed, then access to the bulbs is easy.

1. Pop the plastic snaps that hold the carpet to the trunk lid in order to see the studs that hold the assembly to the trunk lid.
2. Use a 10mm deep socket to remove the 7 nuts (leave the ones that hold the lock assembly alone)
3. Wiggle the assembly free from the trunk lid, being careful not to damage the wires it will be dangling from.
4. Replace the bulbs (if only one is burnt out, replace the pair while you've got it apart, using long-life bulbs)
5. Put it back together (if the outside edge studs had plastic tips on them, put them back and press the plastic snaps back in to hold the carpet up.

How to change air filter 2003 mini

After opening the hood, locate the air filter box, which is just to the rear right corner of the engine. It is connected to the engine via a thick plastic tube.

Remove the tube clamp that joins the plastic tube to the air filter box. The tube clamp is a metal ring with a simple clasp on it. To release the clasp, slide the tip of a flat-head screwdriver in the opening and twist it to either side. The clamp will loosen, allowing you to pull away the tube from the air filter box about an inch or so.

Remove the two metal screws on the right side of the air filter box. They're located along the seam where the lid meets the bottom of the box.

Slide the lid to the left about a half inch; it won't go much farther than that. When it's as far to the left as possible, lift it off.

Pull the old filter out of the box. Give it a close look if you'd like, and if it doesn't appear particularly dirty, put it back in. Otherwise, discard it.

Put in the new, clean filter in the old one's place.

Put the lid back down so it's just to the left side of the bottom of the air filter box, then slide it to the right until it snaps into place.

Replace both screws on the right side.

Slide the plastic tube back onto the air filter box and squeeze the sides of the tube clamp together to lock it on.

Remove interior door panel on 2003 BMW 330I. The window is binding. Trying to get panel off so I can see what it is.

I am assuming that you have a 4 door sedan. If you want to remove the front door panel, it is held on with 4 or 5 torx screws, Under the armrest you will see 2 plastic cap covers. Gently pry the covers loose and the screws are inside. T20 I think. Where the inside release handle is you probably have a decorative strip(wood grain or painted plastic). At the end farthest from the handle, use a plastic wedge, or flat popsicle stick to pry the corner loose and gently pull the strip toward you. There will be 2 more screws under it. If your door has a plastic airbag emblem there is a screw under it. Otherwise there should be 1 screw hiding under the mirror switc on the armrest, or mirror switch cover. Using a small flat edge wedge pry between the panel and body at bottem until the panel pops your way around the entire panel. The top panel near the glass pulls toward you. Once the entire panel is loose, grabbing the armrest,pull the panel straight upwards. Be careful when pulling up as to not pull too far. Your inner release cable is attached on the backside. When reinstalling the panel make sure that the rubber grommets are on the panel clips..they help keep water out.

Trunk lid on 2003 cadillac cts is hard to raise

I had the same problem with my 2003 CTS. It seems it is a factory fault. The two struts that hold the lid up had no gas inside. You will need to have them replaced. About $80.

Factory XM Unit Location

Hi Xit.....The factory XM module is in fact located under the rear shelf trim panel. You will have to remove the rear seat cushion, just pull up on the front of the cushion about 12 inches in from left and right corners. Remove the cushion from the car. Open the trunk and remove nuts located on the seat back just under rear shelf metal. Back inside the rear seat area, remove the seat belt buckle bolts located inboard of right and left lower corners of the seat back. Remove the seat back. You will now be able to see the (2) plastic fir tree pins that hold the shelf panel trim in place. Remove the pins.
Now comes the hard part, remove the right and left quarter sail interior trim panels ( Caution: roof rail air bag located behind right and left panels) the fasteners are located behind the "SIR" plastic buttons in the sail panel trim.
All in all, unless you have the proper tools and take the proper precautions, you might want to take your Cadillac to your local dealer.
Buy the way, is there something wrong with your factory XM module?
Let me know, regards.
