Hey Melissa==First remove the neg battery cable then the serpentine belt then the wiring for the altermator then the 2 bolts that hold it on. Make sure you have a schematic fo…r the belt before you take it off. It should be on the fan shroud. If it isn't there, draw a schematic for yourself. Don't rely on memory. GoodluckJOE
parts and labor will cost around 450.00 dollars

How do you replace an ignition switch on Toyota corolla 1997
Answer . inside your trunk there are two or three plastic nuts that you have to remove to get the taillight assembly off the vehicle. once you have the nuts off push on th…e bolt ends and the taillight should pop out to enable you access to the rear of the taillight. from there its just twisting the lightbulb holders out of their twistseal mechanisms and replacing the light bulbs. be sure to use a clean cotton cloth to handle the lightbulb. you'll regret it if you handle them w/bare hands. they can shatter or overheat and blow out prematurely. once you have the lightbulb that is out replaced just reinsert the light assembly back into the mounting location, guiding the bolts back into their holes. Screw on the 3 plastic bolts and you're all set!\n. \njust a tip on the plastic bolts, you can use a set of adjustable pliers or the right size wrench, but if they give you a lot of trouble you can use a set of visgrips, but dont over tighten them because they'll ruin your plastic bolts. the bolts are hard to turn with bare hands.
Answer . there are a couple mounting screws that hold the headlamp assembly on, unscrew them and the headlamp assembly should come out... and then you pull the connector o…ff the headlamp by pulling up gently on the locking tabs and pulling back at the same time. then twist the locking ring, remove the old lamp and dispose of, replace w/new lamp and reverse directions. the lamp should only fit in the holder one way and there are notches in the headlamp assembly to make you insert it that way. some people with smaller hands can do this without removing the headlamp assembly but i have some bearclaws so i have to take the lamp out to replace the lightbulbs.
Answer . \nFirst of all disconnect the battery remove steering wheel , there is a round slot in the steering column you insert a rod in there it will release the switch ( …be sure to remove negative cable or air bag can go off. You may have to twist the switch back and forth to remove
Where is the fuel shut off switch of a 1997 Chrysler Sebring JX Convertable and how do you reset it?
A Chrysler Sebring does not have a reset switch.
There are two hoses that exit the heater core directly behind the engine, towards the left. They are secured to the heater core with conventional clamps & extend to the driver…s side of the car where they connect to steel tubes that terminate in the engine with slip fit O rings and a support bracket. One of the hoses connects to it's steel tube with a conventional clamp & the other with a "special" fitting that is part of the hose. The hoses have preformed bends in them to wrap around the back of the engine. They are very difficult to replace. I removed the air intake "horn" to gain access to the heater core ends & removed the distributor to access & remove the steel tubing from the engine. Mine were leaking at the O rings as well as at the tubing to hose connection.
There is a small pin under the steering column that you push in torelease the ignition switch and it just pulls out. To put in thenew one simply push it into place.
Ignition Switch . Removal & Installation . 1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.. 2. Remove the steering column shroud and lower the steering column.. 3. Detach the i…gnition switch electrical hardness connector.. 4. Remove 2 nuts retaining the ignition switch to the steering column housing.. 5. Lift the ignition switch upward to disengage the actuator rod from the switch and remove the switch.. To install: . > When installing the ignition switch, both the locking mechanism at the top of the column and the switch itself must be in the LOCK position for correct adjustment. To hold the mechanical parts of the column in the LOCK position, move the shift lever into PARK (with automatic transmissions) or REVERSE (with manual transmissions), turn the key to the LOCK position, and remove the key. New replacement switches, when received, are pinned in the LOCK position by a metal shipping pin inserted in a locking hole on the side of the switch. . 6. Engage the actuator rod in the ignition switch.. 7. Place the ignition switch on the steering column housing and loosely install 2 retaining nuts.. 8. Move the switch up or down along the column to locate the mid-position of the actuator rod lash, then tighten the retaining nuts to 47-64 inch. Lbs. (5-7 Nm).. 9. Raise the steering column into position at instrument panel. Install steering column shroud.. 10. Connect the negative battery cable.. 11. Remove the locking pin, connect the battery cable, and verified that the engine will only crank in PARK and NEUTRAL. Also check to make certain the start circuit cannot be actuated in the DRIVE and REVERSE positions.
It's on the Right side of the Steering column, like practically every other car made.
These are a pain in the butt. The short answer is to pull out the old switch and remove the electrical connector. Push down on the brake pedal and hold down while pushing the …new switch into the hole. Hold the switch in and release the pedal until the rod inside the switch adjusts. Then plug the electrical connector back in and check the lights. Sometimes these switched will pop out, killing the battery in the process, so holding it in that second or two is important. You may want to have someone pushing the pedal from one side while you hold the switch in. These are a one shot deal.
If you're positive that it's teh ignition switch, the part is aslow as $23 shipped - if you have a mechanic install it - he'lltrouble shoot to make sure thats the part you nee…d (being theproblem), could cost you oup near $200 installed.
It's difficult to explain how, given the space on this board. You need several tools, patience, and some understanding before you tackle that project. It's best to visit your …library and get the Chilton automotive book on that car, copy the page (you can't take the book with you most of the time), and try it. If you follow the steps, it's relatively easy. If you don't want to take on the project, get a friend that is learned in auto mechanics, OR, dare it say it? Go to a shop. Ugh! $75 an hour. You decide.
Drop the steering wheel, at the back of the ignition there are wires with a screw in the middle edge. Remove the screw, unplug the connector and it comes right out.
