How to remove plastic front wheel drive cover on Toro Recycler

The cover looks like it should just snap loose, maybe with a screwdriver, but I don't want to break anything. I was mowing when the self-propulsion feature suddenly quit woking. The drive belt does not appear to be broken, but is loose and the drive mechanism will not engage. Suggestions will be appreciated.

Thanks,

Jim

    I have a 2008 Toro 22 in recycler and the self propel quit working and the rear wheels will not turn backwards. I tried tightening the cable as described in the manual, but that did not help. I am curious about how to remove the cover for the drive belt.

    Thanks for your comments. The first thing I checked was to see if the drive shaft was clean, and it was much cleaner than I expected.Is the screw on the top of the deck or below the deck? I have not found it yet. Update: I think I just found it below the deck near the front.- Thanks again for your help.

On my Toro recycler, I also had the front drive stop working -- and fixed it after reading the solutions here.

First, the plastic cover on the top deck that goes over the front drive mechanism must be loosened enough to pull it up. Before you can do that, on the underside there is one screw to take out.

Once that's done, all you have to do is pry the plastic cover up enough to see the belt and pulley that make up the front drive assembly. On mine, the belt had simply come off the pulley. Putting the belt back on, then tightening things back up is all it took to put the Toro back in sel-propelled happiness. Good luck!

I just found them. One at the left corner of the cover (standing facing the front of the mower) the other to the left of the opening where the cable enters the cover. You access them both from under the mower.

There were TWO bolts/screws (10 mm; I used a 3" socket to remove); located underneath; one is near the front wheel, the other covered up with dried grass near the blade housing.

How do you change the air filter?


The air filter cover is the big plastic square box conected to a huge hose that goes to the intake. To remove the cover, snap out the steel clips with your fingrs or a screwdriver ( I think they are just 2 in the Caravan), and loose (but keep it on) the clamp around the big hose I mentioned. It might take some jerking because it gets stuck sometimes. There's an air flow sensor conected to the hose itself, so, if it's in the way or you risk breaking it, just unplug it. All the Dodge electrical connectors have a red safety pin that you need to slide first. Once you remove the filter cover, take the filter out and clean everything (like leaves) off the filter casing. Install the new filter (it goes just in one position), and reinstall the cover, hose and connector. Snap the clips back and don't forget to tighten the clamp. Make sure you don't force the cover to close if it does not look right, some cars use two slots that need to be put back first, and then the clips.

How do U remove the Interior light covers on a 2002 Dodge Intrepid. tried using a screwdriver and pushing left and it did not work


If you're talking about the map lights (2 lights in between driver and passenger)

If you have just the map lights, just pull the whole assembly out. Don't worry about anything breaking, just pull it down, just not at an angle or anything. It easily snaps back into place after. Bulbs can be removed once you have it out.

If you have an overhead console, you remove a screw towards the front of the overhead console Then just pull. If you're talking about other interior lights, let me know I'll let you know how to remove it.

My lawnmover still cuts OK, but the propulsion doesn't work - it suddenly stopped mid-mow. I can't see anything immediately wrong with the mechanism underneath. Many thanks


plugged up jet in the carburetor does this. Starts when cold and eventually dies out
Have the jets cleaned and the float checked as well

My toilet is moving-how do I get the covers off the floor bolts


The covers are 99% of the time plastic, and if broken will cost around $3 to replace if you break them.
The caps are a two part systema base that goes below the nut and the top dome that covers the assembly. See here: http://www.plumbingsupply.com/images/toilet_bolt_caps_green.gif (ignore the special color)
These two pieces snap together and with a slotted/flathead screwdriver should just pop off with a little bit of convincing. If they are too loose that the screwdriver will not work a claw hammer can also pop them off. If all else fail, break them. They serve completely aesthetic and no actual function beyond, however they are easier to clean and may assist in the reduction of bacteria growth.

Driver side mirror loose how can i tighten it


Most mirrors have a removable cover just on the inside of the door. If you look closely where the mirror meets the door on the inside should be a snap in place cover or three screw holes with snap in covers that you remove and then use a screwdriver or small socket wrench to tighten the screws or bolts.

Need instructions to replace the bezel on a gateway 7330gz


Just like any other laptop LCD screen, edtechservic. Remove the rubber caps that cover the Philips head screws, remove the screws, and work around the bezel to pop it loose, a little at a time.

Top cover up, you are looking at the LCD screen. Look at the top Left and Right corners of the screen bezel. Look in-between. Now look along the bottom of the screen bezel. See those small rubber caps? G-E-N-T-L-Y pry them loose with a 60 or 90 degree pick. (In your computer repair kit)
Use care, and finesse! You don't want to scratch the clients laptop!
Now loosen, and remove the screws underneath.

Use a Jewelers flat tip screwdriver, (No.2), and ease it in the parting line, that you will see between the bezel, and top cover. Don't go more than a 1/4 inch in! You could be up against the LCD screen metal frame, if you go too far in. (Which could break the LCD screen)

Won't ease in there? Move over an inch or so. You could be hitting the plastic part of the bezel, that snaps down into the Top Cover.
There are several of these plastic protrusions, that stick down from the bezel, and snap into place in the Top Cover. Every few inches or so.

After you start easing one of these plastic snaps out, (Plastic protrusion I spoke of above), move along the edge, pick another place, and start easing it up. Keep bringing the edge up a little at a time. (Bring the back of the flat tip jewelers screwdriver down)
When you have gone along, and raised a large portion of the bezel, you should hear a distinct Click, as one of the plastic snaps come out of the Top Cover.
If not, move back to the first plastic snap that started to come out, and place your flat tip Jewelers screwdriver next to it. Bring the back of the screwdriver down to pop that plastic snap up, and out.

Hearing it your first time might make you a little stomach sick. You'll think you broke something! If you go along, and raise the bezel up a little at a time, you'll be okay. The bezel is made of space age plastic, and is VERY tough! You can't get crazy with it though!

When you have gone almost all the way around the bezel, the last few inches may just pop up, and out.
This link shows you with photos, and information, for a Gateway MT6704 Notebook PC,

http://www.insidemylaptop.com/remove-lcd-screen-from-gateway-mt6704-model-ma7/

This guide is to completely replace the LCD screen. You can just use the information under the first five photos, for bezel replacement.

Hoover Savvy self propulsion not working


The switch contacts are burned out and the switch must be replaced. This link sells the whole handle with switch but, check your serial number to be sure to get the right one. If you can use a Philips head screwdriver, you can do this easily.
