  • This is too funny!

    We have a car that came in which was just checked out at Pep Boys. The receipt has this warning on the top

    I bet they are having a ton of issues with wheels falling off after service from their super highly qualified technicians. So if you don't return for a retorque they are not liable? I don't think so

    I usually go thru the back door at walmart thru the sevice bay area, I just start laughing when I see how much folks trust them with their vehicles, Looks like i now have to fix the heater door in my 95 ranger just for laughs I asked my ford dealer 800-900 dollars The oem motor is 78.00 at oreilly and I can get at it thru the glove box. You need to make up a long list like that Mitch that is really hilarious. Sir you need to sign here to show that you declined your declines.

      They must have quoted you for the plenum assy, which comes with the door and not just the door motor

      If you plan to hang a motor on it without mounting it on the plenum to see if it moves, do not let it go from stop to stop as it will screw it up. They are designed to only move the amount of the door travel FYI

      Thanks for that did not know that but I would have mounted it then try it however first I will check to see if it is getting power and not a blown fuse.

    How about putting on your big boy pants and accept you get what you pay for!

    A fellow took his leased SUV to a fast lube place where a disinterested employee used an impact gun to tighten (strip) the oil pan drain plug. Same talent added ATF to 'top off' the brake master cylinder.

    Many hundreds of dollars later spent with a dealer, the fellow had brakes again..

      How true you know these people have no experience or they would not be working there for what they are paid.

    We ended up doing all the work for a 100 dollars less, and they won't have to come back for a re torque or worry about their P/S pump falling off:rolling

      The tire store where I used to live must have used a 3/4 impact gun to tighten the lug nuts.
      They were near impossible to loosen and more than a few people had their studs snap off within a few miles after leaving the place.

            Thanks again Mitch this little truck has not hit 100,000 yet and so far I have only put a timing belt and water pump on it. It is only two wheel drive but flat gets around in the snow with a little weight in back. Those diagrams are a really big help like to know what I am doing before I start. I can also talk to my buddy who works on foreign cars as you know this thing and the mazda b2300 are the same vehicle.

          Car Hauler Door warning and Mystery Solved
          by Tom Wesenberg
          I'm north at my friend's house to dig up some small evergreens, and the first thing Charlie asked me to look at was his rear door on his Cargo Mate trailer. The cable had come completely off the spool, and he couldn't figure out why or how to fix it. The first thing we did was remove the metal cover over the shaft and springs. Right away I didn't like to see the 8' shaft with no center support. When...

          Door Bumpers on a Pickup
          by 30Pickemup
          I’m going to adjusting the cab to fit the doors and the hood now that everything is painted.
          My issue now is to not chip the paint in the process - so I thought it would be a good idea to install the door bumpers to protect the cab and the doors.

          I have the parts shown in the pictures - as the door bumper kit. (I put captions under them)
          I figured out where the top corner...

          Door striping
          by Apple Green Wheels Rule
          Below is a photo of where I just removed the old door stripping. It was hard and rotted. I thought it was time to replace it but....didn't find anything like that on Snyders so I was thinking, was there such a strip for weather/sound proofing or was this a previous owners addition? The stripping was only along the door edge, not the bottom or upper edges.

          Removing Door Handles and Repairing Door Latches and Locks
          by Tom Wesenberg
          I had to replace some broken springs in my 1929 Tudor. To remove the handle, just remove the 2 screws on the outside, then turn the handle 45 degrees, wiggle it as you pull outward. Spraying Kroil on the square shaft helps during removal, as does holding the flap inward to relieve some pressure. Then you can remove the screws on the latch assembly and work the latch out of the door. It's very tight...

          Bent hinges - DUMB MISTAKE
          by Supergnat
          I am really embarrassed to write this but I desperate need of advice. I accidentally drove my 28 Fordor Leatherback into the garage with the driver side rear door open. The door caught on the edge of the garage opening molding and bent the door back over the rear fender. I was able to straighten the edge of the door where it contacted the fender but the door will not close anymore. The upper and...

          Door dovetail need help
          by Mickey
          In the first picture below on the left is what came out of my truck door and I believe it is incorrect. On the right is the one I believe is correct for my late '31 CCPU. My big question, assuming the right one is correct, is how do I get it in. You can see the small cavity it fits into and can only go in from the front opening....

          Sedan Doors Hard to Open
          by Tom Wesenberg
          When I stopped by Mark's house the other day, he showed me an interesting problem on his sedan. The doors shut fine, but when he tried to turn the handle to open the front doors, it was hard to turn. I rolled the front door windows down and was able to squirt oil on the mechanism inside the door. This was all that was needed to fix the problem. But for the rear doors, even with the windows all the...

          Door Latch
          by Beauford
          For some reson my pass door on my 29 RPU wont stay shut. It always needed a slam but now that doesnt even work. Latches and mechanisms are all new. Spring on latch is strong. I know the door is a little off but didn't know if something was easier than shimming.
