This new to the scene Chevy AWD Astro Van was a fan favorite and didn't
disappoint the crowd. But unfortunately in the end, it wound up breaking a
hub I think...

ERIC THE CAR GUY
Auto: Side Mirror Replacement
How to do-it yourself instructional on replacing a side-view mirror on a
car or light truck with complete inner door panel removal and installation
process and discussions on torque and the over-tightening of fasteners.
OK so the problem is obvious, the driver's side view mirror is loose at the
base. There is a broken mount. So stay tuned, we'll have a look. you've
seen the problem, this mirror has a bad wobble in it because of a broken
mount. we're going to, with a small handful of tools, remove the inside
door panel and pull off the mirror, there's a little screw holds on that
tray and another screw in here going to slip my little screwdriver in
underneath, pry up on it, underneath there are a couple of hex headed
screws remove with this little socket wrench. going to leave it hanging
like that because I'm not going to disconnect components simply lifting the
door panel off and let it hang get into this area. the only specialized
tool you need made by Lisle. make your own need a piece of flat bar, cut a
little groove in it bend the end of it. here's the diagram General Motors
suggests your tool should look like. we start at the bottom, work your way
in get the door panel off. last thing is a channel hooking into the door
frame. need to be able to pop upwards and it's free. drop that through.
little fellow comes in behind and pops free out used to cover access ports.
pull them out carefully get in behind it with a screwdriver and chase it
out through the front. 10mm socket. problem with a recess is I'm afraid to
drop the nut inside the door panel. instead of undoing them all the way
then I reach inside with my mechanical fingers... undo it the rest of the
way with sure grip on the nut. And the mirror pulls away. there's an
electrical connection. Pull back locking tab and it pulls apart. there's
three studs third one's broken. service manual calls for 53 lb.in. show you
on this wheel nut that you can easily put 53lb.ft. on with just one hand. a
foot pound is 12 inch pounds so it's twelve times the power require on
these little nuts. dialled in 53lb.ft.. I just wanted to show you how easy
it is to make that kind of power never mind the 53lb.in., all you need to
hang mirror. make some power. I was only a foot out rather than the actual
full 18"... you see that? I don't turn at all and it's already saying
53lb.ft. make 53 lb.ft. just one hand and only twelve inches leverage.
weather's changed hope there's enough light. get started by peeling off the
tape. work with the window open, I'm working through window for your
benefit.. touched up the paint where it's been worn off by mirror. parts
dealer she was able to pick it off the shelf in minutes. don't live in a
metropolitan area you might not be as lucky, wait a week or two... local
scrap yard see if they've got it half the price a new one. electrical
connection to go through I'm going to limit the amount of torque that I put
behind this nut to ¼" socket wrench. got my nut loaded and it's in place
with a bit of shop towel. find the stud. certain that's started now pull
this off get the shop towel out of there and put this back on and spin it.
all 3 nuts in place we can torque them down to spec. limit the torque I
apply by using a ¼" socket wrench and choking half way up on it there's
40lb.in. and a zero we want to go to 53 don't know if you can see there's
50, 11, 12, 13, 40 and 13 is 53. torque these down you want to you want to
bring all the bolts snug before you try and apply the torque developed a
feel for it know spring about to jump. 1st one. 2nd. all three. letting go
with this hand in order that it doesn't interfere with the torque I'm
applying with this hand doing it with two fingers of pressure. some things
can't take a lot of power you can make a lot of power no matter how small
you think you are no matter how weak you might believe you're very strong
compared to small fasteners and it's very easy to break them. foam
bushings used for soundproofing. There's 1, 2, 3 they're just plugs cover
the access port. body panel plugs I was mentioning. hang in little
bracket/keepers on the inside panel they're all barbed and have pointed
tips why you need that curved tool --get in behind it and it pops out.
little hook, like that kind of deal . hook it into the door-panel right
onto the steel inner door skin. pass this through there work on hooking
that into the door.. Find keepers. little plastic piece holds door handle
release and the actuator for the door lock. little keyhole type slot and
lock actuator this rod and its got to be lined up. have both the actuator
and the control both in the unlocked position. find neutral position work
your way on from corner and snap drop a screw in behind there and we're
done. last thing is hang convex "spotter" mirror on the outside lower
corner I don't care what size vehicle you've got -- even a motorcycle --
you want convex mirrors on both sides. fully operational, go for a drive
and I'll show you.

Forgotten Volkswagen Camper Van LIVES AGAIN !!!!!!! VW Bus
We pulled this 1979 Volkswagen Camper out of a shop where it had been
sitting since 1997. The motor was partially installed but needed to be
finished. Tires were shot and the interior was a mess. We spent the
better part of 2 weeks cleaning, polishing and replacing anything that
needed to be fixed. It was a team effort and couldn't have got it done
without the help of my amazing wife and daughters. Big thanks to Allan of
Southeast Idaho Motors for helping with some mechanical issues and for the
parts he donated to the project. If you have an old Volkswagen you want to
sell give us a call today at (208)200-6053. Thanks Jeremy at Skeeters Auto
