As you might have noticed, the hosting has expired on almost all of these how-to documents. I have been able to recover them all from Internet Archive, and am planning to re-index and re-host them once I find the proper place to do so.

Until that time, I have simply dropped everything into a shared folder on a Google Drive, so you can access them - albeit in a random, unorganized fashion - at this link: HowTos - Google Drive

Thanks for your patience.

I've been wanting to do this for a while, So I got with Trevor, he provided the space for me to store all these on the site.

I took all the How-To's I knew of, and put each in a PDF file.
Below are the direct link to each. These are exact copies of the How-To's so I take no credit or responsibility to their content. In each I listed the creator, or the user whom posted the How-To. Enjoy.

In no particular order (Hit F3, and type in a word to find matches)

(more to come w/ time)

Starters are pretty simple. Hard job because of the tight space, but not hard to figure out. 2 bolts and some wire plugs to remove, that's it...

you should edit #45 to "REPLACE DPFE Sensor for 99-00" Because the DPFE sensor for 01-02's are different and located differently.

Thanks guys! This really helped.
I just changed my blower motor resistor, cabin air filter, fuel filter, cleaning my uim and lim, and cleaned my throttle valve in a matter of hours!!!
I love this forum! =D

Thank you for #41, although the part about the screws holding the airbag in being smaller was incorrect in my case. Also, it says 4 screws and my situation had 5 holding the upper and lower steering column covers in place.
3 on the bottom= T20
2 on top= T20

then T25 for the airbag itself.

The holes for the airbag screws were very narrow and I could not fit a 1/4 inch drive Torx socket in, so disassembled my cheapo Autozone folding Torx tool, and used just the shaft of that with a screw driver to give me torque in the eyelet.

I skipped the battery removal, as I've worked on enough SRS systems to know how they work and that discharging the system is pretty much a waste of time.

After looking at the steeringwheel mounting, I cannot beleive that that design made it past safety inspectors. :crazy:
The wheel only stiffened up after a bunch of torque was applied. (way beyond the 36 pounds the Mitchell manual said was correct.)

Either way, thank you very much for a very usefull forum.
