Remove front bumper 1999 tarago


Hi
This is how you remove the front bumpers from 1990-2000 model Toyota taragos/Previas
First if your tarago/previa has a bull bar it has to be removed, before you can remove the front bumper.

There are 6 X 18 mm bolts secured to the bull bar brackets, remove the 3 x 18mm on the left and 3 x 18mm on the left and place the bull bar in a secure area to reattach later, don't be surprised if its full of rust it needs to be sand blasted, rust treated and repainted.
The next step is to remove the bull bar brackets to do this you must remove the grille to access the 4 x 18mm bolts on the inside of the grille 2 x 18mm on the left and 2 x 18mm on the right.

Open the bonnet of your tarago/previa there is a screw at the top of the center of the grille that has to be removed and placed in a container to reassemble later.

The next step is a bit tricky but with persistence and practice you will get better, the grille has four plastic clips that hold the grill in place.


Now listen carefully, you cant just pull on the grille firmly and hope that strength alone will pop the grille, these clips are designed to open when the grille is pushed into place so the top and bottom of the clip have to be depressed to slide the insert out to remove the grille, but you can depress one side a time it dosent have to be both at the same time.


It just takes take and patience to do, start from the top left clip, pull the grille towards you and with a flat blade screw driver look down the grill and press the top of the clip still pulling the grille, the clip will depress but now you have to do the bottom of that clip too.


There are gaps in the grille you need a tool like a L shape pick or an interior tool shaped like a L for removing door trims, you can buy these items at $2 dollar shops, you feed the tool through the gap in the grille and place it under the bottom of the clip and when you press down it lifts up depressing the bottom of the clip while you are still pulling the grille towards you.


Once that clip is out stay on the left side and do the left bottom clip repeat the process and then do the right top clip and then the bottom right clip, when the grill is out push all the clips back into the grille so you don't loose them and place grille in a secure place until your ready to reassemble.


When you reassemble the grille you just place the grille over the insert holes and push them back into place they will automatically snap back into position and then screw the center top grill screw back in.


Now the grille is out, you will need an extension on your ratchet to reach and remove these bolts 4 X 18mm bolts, 2 on the left and 2 on the right, there is a dryer bottle on the left or right of your vehicle depending on country, so the extension needs to be reasonable long.


Once the brackets are removed place the bolts into your container, there are 4 x10mm bottom bumper bolts securing the bumper onto the reinforcement bar remove them.


Then there are 2 X 10mm upper corner bumper bolts securing the bumper to the body remove them, and then the last 2 X 10mm to be removed are at the bottom of the corner bumper secured on to a rail.


Once these 10mm bolts are removed the front bumper will slide off, place the bolts in your container and reassemble when ready.


Cheers

How to change a front wheel stud on a 2001 nissan xterra front 4 wd hub


None of those answers are correct, as they obviously have never worked on an Xterra. As an Xterra owner myself, and automotive TECHNICIAN... You need to remove the rotor/hub assembly. To do this, you will need a 6mm allen head to take out the 6 bolts holding your hub onto the assembly. Once this is off, you will have to remove a snap ring from around the CV axle input splines. Once that is off you will be able to remove the bearing assembly inside. Take a 14mm socket, and remove the 6 bolts holding the hub onto the rotor. You will also need to remove the caliper from the rotor, and hang it with a piece of wire up and out of the way, being sure not to let it hang free or drop. With the caliper off, and all the bolts out you should be able to remove the rotor/hub assembly from the CV splines. Then you can seperate the hub from the rotor, which will probably be rusted on (Cushion the face of the rotor on a towel, and being sure not to hit the rotor, hit the flat surface of the hub with a hammer which will break loose the rust). Tap the top of the old studs out thru the back of the hub...then tap the back of the new studs in. They need to be able not to slide in and out of the bore, but don't necessarily have to be flush with the hub. Once you get everything back together and tighten the lugs on, it will pull the studs the rest of the way thru the hub and seat them properly.

Hopefully this helps...There is no need to take it to a machine shop or do ANY kind of pressing in or out. There is NO giant hub nut and cotter pin to remove.

How much to repaint the damaged paint about 4 inches long on the front bumper of a 2001 audi tt


That would depend on the labor rates in your local area. Also how the work is done. From just painting and blending clear in a small area and to removing the bumper cover and clear the whole cover.

Bumper cover


it depends how deep the scratches are you can use an epoxy to fill them in then sand them smooth with emery paper. when you paint it make sure you have a paint that has a flex agent in it because it's plastic and will flex and the paint will crack if it does not have an agent in it make sure to prime it with a primer that has the same agent in it. please rate this thanks
