How To Quiet Squeaky Belts On A Car - Cheap And Easy Fix
Here is how to quiet squeaky belts on a car. It's cheap and easy to do,
and all you need is a bar of soap. If the belts on your car are squeaking,
this is how to fix it. In some cases, it isn't the belts making the noise,
but the belt tensioner. If that's what is making the noise, you'll need to
replace it. If the car's accessory drive belt is causing the loud
squeaking when it rubs against the pulleys, putting some soap on the bottom
of the belt as well as the sides will stop the belt from squeaking. It
doesn't take a lot of soap to get the job done, but make sure you turn the
engine over a few times and put soap on the belt each time, so you cover
the parts of the belt you can't reach. This cheap and easy squeaky car
belt fix has been around for a long time and works pretty well.
How To Remove Rust From Chrome Cheap & Easy
Here is how to remove rust spots from chrome using simple tools you already
have in your house. To remove small rust spots from chrome, you can use
aluminum foil or steel wool to rub the chrome until the rust spots are
gone. After the rust spots are gone, wipe off any dust from the chrome
surface, and then put some car wax on the chrome to seal it and protect it
from moisture. If you don't apply a protective coating of wax to the
chrome, water will be able to get to the metal beneath the chrome, and the
rust spots will come back. This is a simple and effective way to remove
rust spots from chrome. If the rust spots on the chrome are too big to be
removed by steel wool, you can still rub them with steel wool until all of
the surface rust is gone, clean it, and then apply a little bit of chrome
paint. It won't look great, but it will look better than a rust spot, and
the metal underneath will be protected. I hope this helps you remove the
rust spots from the chrome on your cars and bikes.

How To Restore Headlights - EricTheCarGuy
I've probably been asked about doing this video more than any other. The
Subaru makes a prime candidate to test this out. I did make some mistakes
when it came to using the buffer so try and learn from those by not using
the terry cloth attachment and also making sure you don't stay in one place
too long, otherwise stick to the directions and do stuff by hand, do it
fast enough and it will be good cardio.
You can find the Quixx kit that I used at Walmart, Pep Boys, and Autozone
in addition to your local auto parts supplier. Also here at this link.

HOW TO: Super Clean Your Windshield
Check out our new updated "express" version of this video:
"HOW TO SUPER CLEAN YOUR WINDSHIELD... SUPER FAST!"

We demonstrate how to make the windshield of your RV or car cleaner and
clearer. We'll show you how to improve the clarity of the glass and
UPDATE: A viewer wrote to say that he experienced some areas of scratching
after trying this. I've never heard of it scratching before, so I just did
a little Googling, and while there seem to be some people who question
using steel wool, others swear by it. Some also think you should never us
a razor blade on glass, and others do it all the time. One suggestion was
to use wet steel wool (of course it will then rust, so pitch it
afterwards). Another mentioned buying something called "Poli-Flex
Rubberized Clayblock" for cleaning. Although I cannot guarantee that
scratching is impossible, many people who've tried steel wool since seeing
this video have been thrilled with the results. Either way, proceed slowly
and with caution and at your own risk.
After a little time goes by, every windshield gets a little hazy. That
goes double for autos that are towed right behind a large motorhome. Using
our toad (towed car), we show you how to use fine steel wool, Rain-X and
Invisible Glass to make your view just a little bit clearer.
Although our car's windshield has a lot of little nicks from over 9 years
of being towed around North America, we still want to keep it as clear as
possible. Regular washing can't remove the fine dirt that gets into the
pores of the glass, so we use a little detailer's trick that we learned
years ago: 0000 steel wool. While you'd expect that steel wool would
scratch the glass, it's exactly the opposite. Just like furniture makers
use extra-fine steel wool to rub out the surface of the wood after each
coat of stain, it polishes glass the same way. Everybody we've told about
this little detailing trick seemed really surprised that steel wool does
not scratch glass.
NOTE: We mention using fine 0000 steel wool in this video. It is EXTREMELY
FLAMMABLE, and care should be used in storing and using it. To see our
video demonstrating how to start a fire using only steel wool and a 9-volt
battery, click here:

DO YOUR RV SLIDE TOPPERS NEED REPLACING? Tough Top Awnings are thicker and
stronger than OEM fabric and cost far less too! Get higher-quality fabric
and save at least half the cost by replacing your slide toppers yourself.

RV Geeks offers basic DIY (do it yourself) RV service, repair, maintenance
and travel tips from full-time RVers who have been handling most of their
own maintenance since hitting the road in 2003.
Be sure to confirm that all methods and materials used are compatible with
your particular recreational vehicle. Every type of motorhome, motorcoach,
fifth wheel, travel trailer, bus conversion, camper and toy hauler is
different, so your systems may not be the same as ours.
RVgeeks is proud to be affiliated with RVtravel.com.
While we're not RV technicians, we're very mechanically inclined and have
learned a lot about RV systems over the years. We handle most of our own
minor service, maintenance and repair work on our 2005 43' Newmar Mountain
Aire diesel pusher. We also maintained our 2002 39' Fleetwood Bounder
Diesel during our first two years on the road.
We meet lots of newer RVers who are eager to learn some basics about
maintaining and caring for their rigs. After more than 10 years on the
road, we want to share what we've learned (some of it the hard way). ;-)
We hope our experiences can help other RVers go DIY, saving some time,
money and effort, while experiencing the satisfaction of a job well done.
We do not pretend to be experts on any particular RV topic, and mostly know
about maintaining our own rig. But lots of things are the same on RVs in
general, and diesel pushers in particular.

Using citric acid for rust removal
Citric acid can be bought from drugstore (they use it in jelly or such to
adjust acidity) but it is very expensive there. Therefore Finnish rodders
buy it from some agriculture-store. It is not expensive. Officially it is
used as pigs obstruent! I dipped those parts in citric acid for overnight,
next day brushed it with wirebrush and flushed it with water. Then again
back to citric acid over night and wirebrushed + flushed it next day.
Flushing is important, you'll want to get all acid away, otherwise steel
will turn to yellow.
You can't use this method on all parts because of hydrogen embrittlement.
So no pedals, frames, brake drums, engine blocks or such to citric acid!!!
And yeah, parts should be clean -I've cleaned 'em with fuel- because grease
will neutralize acid. Ratio was 3%
Parts must be dried soon as you get them flushed, I quess you guys know
