How to Quarter Panel Removal in kia spectra 2007


do you have body tools ? cut off wheel die grinder ? small cutoff wheels ? a spot weld cutter drill bit a drill ? a mig welder hammers sheet metal screw and drill bit 1/8"..? a pro will grind all the spot welds out with these mini cutoff wheels it mite be possible to grind through the spot welds around the wheel wheel well area or cut the spot welds with a spotweld cutter drill bit (air drill helpfull) dont grind a hole all the way through the inner support sheet metal when cutting/grinding out spot welds .Once all the welds are grinded or cut out around wheel well then threre is an area behind the bumper (remove it) cut the welds there or a cheat might just cut throgh the sheetmetal behind the bumper okay?. lok at the panel you are installing it is just like what you will be taking off okay ? if you are to weld the pillar high or lower pillar you decide make a measurement leave at least 4 inches tooverlap the new panel to the top ofthe car piller the hatch or trunk area take the rubberseal off the body take th inner panel loose and out put aside .okay ?it may be nessesary to cut the rear rocker panel near the door opening (look at new panel) measure and cut with cutoff wheel just through the panel dont cut deep cut the bottom aarea between the door opening and wheel well area at edge only the top layer door cut all the way into any lower metal sandwiched to the outer panel okay ? the door opening is where you will cut the remaining welds as to dislocate the panel entirely (dont grind through the under metal just the top sheet at welds )okay ?After this you should pry any reamaining parts of the old panel dont bend the pillar when prying panel off look behind the panel any glue ? body rubber cut with knike or putty scrapper" if theres any crosse welds you will have t cut the panel some more leave any truck floor metal alone you will need to hook back to this area . Once all the old panel is cut sometime in 2 or 3 peices you will began to try fit the new panel if the quarter is to be welded into the door opening area it is criticle to postion it perfectly first when you are ready to weld the new panel fasten it in place with sheet metal screws or rivets .Asuming you are a good mig welder you will begin at the top on the piller taking several places about 4 inches apart alow time for panel to col of wip it with a wet cloth to speed cooling .Watch the shape is it deforming bad if so you welding to close together but finish the top weld on the planel first until you have tack weld about 2 inches apart after wards look at the door area is it still centered where you can weld it ? if so good if not well not good . The next area wil be the door inseam tack weld at the top do bout 6 inches of this area then stop look at the hatch/trunck ara is it claped or screwed together ?(you should have drilled little 3/16" holes just where the old weld was dun it is through these holes in the new panel you will weld the new tack welds that attache the new panel to the body under support (structure) if no hole you will make holes before you attach the panel in place understand?)after welding the hatch truck area about half the way go back and finish the door area which is claped and screewed temporarily together last you will weld the wheel and then finally the area behind the bumper and if your welding the bottom to the eld under side the panel as some beginners will use screws on this under area because its the hardest to weld . when the whole area is tacked go back to the piller and weld it solid across and into the hatch or glass ,Speaking of glass they should be removed as wel will damage them the whole top of the car and any glase should be covered with fiberglass weld blanket if yu dont have one get a big cardboard refrigrator box and tape it to car top windowes where weld splatterso beware will burn spots on surface making a lot of damage . Grinde the weld down with die grinder and rotary abrasive wheel or stone . When the weld has been smoother with grinder it will be time to sand nearby pained area subjacent to (next too) areas with 80 grit sandpaper". After that a layer of body filler (bondo) is applied to the areas of the joint/s at the roof piller" and at the rocker panel joints use less hardener on the first coat as you will be doing 2 or three coats building up the layers and extending about 5 inches onto the top of the piller and maybe say 10 inches onto the bottom of the new panel okay when body is hard sand it untill it is smooth filling any low areas and re-sand after bondo filler use 220 grit then 325 grit then 400 grit prime filler and panel with grey primer and tape car sand primer with 500 grit wet and dri and wash paint then paint with same auto paint(color) over lap and polish paint .Reinstall any lights bumper cover and weather strip use come caulk or weld seam sealer to seal any cracks between the metal at the door or hatch /trunk area before painting .Reinstall any glass removed, take tape off add sound deadner" if necessary? reinstall inner panels ect. thats it "your done" clean up your car

I have a hotpoint WT960 an believe that the drum bearings have gone but all the videos I can find are for the wm series which has a removable back this one has sides an back all as one HELP pls Scott


Hello!
First of all, make sure you have a machine witch is not with welded tub, a lot of these machines are made with sealed tub, so in this case you have a problem....
Check if it's with removable front panel, remove kickplate plastic down and chek for screws that hold front panel. If there are no screws and front is welded, it means you will need to remove tub upwards, which is a PITA. You need to remove all hoses, wires from motor, heater, sensors, unscrew shock absorber, remove detergent drawer from top, door gasket. and when everything disconnected, lift up the tub. Ask for some help because it's heavy.

Maytag dryer


If this is the metal drum model of Maytag dryer, then the drum is likely out of round and will be evidenced by a broken spot weld on the seam where the drum is welded. I have had to replace mine for that very issue. Not cheap! Hope that is not the case for yours, but just rotate the drum by hand and you will see a high and low spot during the rotation. If the high and low spots are consistent, you know your drum is out of round and likely has busted spot welds. You can run it like that for a while if you can stand the thumping. If no out of round condition, then check the roller alignment and see if the bracket got tweaked not allowing it to rest on the drum. Again...if it touche s the drum and then leaves the drum as the drum is rotate by hand, the drum is out of round. Hope this helps

Can't get new door seal onto hotpoint WDL520 washer dryer


If it is welded, it is not constructed to remove! You may need to remove the drum completely. That probably is from the rear of the unit.

How do I split the outer drum on a hotpoint wml540?


The drum is a plastic welded type, and can not be taken apart. You need to replace the entire tub assembly. Sorry.

How do you install a outer door panel skin on a 2001 kia optima


remove the door. drill the spot welds up top. grind the edges of the old door until you can separate it with a hand chisel and hammer with ease. and get a soft hammer and a piece of wood and gently bend over the edges. dont forget to apply adhesive to the reinforcement inside the door to the skin and spot weld the upper lip of the door skin.

Washer making holes in clothes


Feel the drum inside for any sharp object example a pin that is sticking sideways in a hole or the the drum spot-weld spots that came lose making a high spot.
I did find the same kind of a problem with a Defy front Loader machine. You can also check the gap between the door and the drum lip.
Hope this will solve your problem and save yourself from spending big bucks on new clothes.

Drum on my wma62 won't turn


Hi.

The main drum bearigs have failed, you have to disconnect everything you can to enable you have to
remove the whole drum and container through the top of the m/c.
It is quite an involved repair, and could prove to be expensive. more so if the drum shaft is worn.
Good luck.
if you need any further info, let me know
