Remember the Fabulous Automobile Fix-It-All-by-Yourself Resource

Did you know this about a 2004 Cadillac DeVille DHS V8:
When removing the halfshaft you must prevent the inner CV-joint from becoming over-extended. Over-extension of the joint could result in separation of internal components and possible joint failure. I have no idea what this means! But some of you could breeze through those two sentences and know exactly what to do. Auto Repair Reference Center has repair information for hundreds of vehicles. With diagrams, including the bonus wiring diagrams. You can use this baby in any of our 6 libraries or in the comfort of your own home. To get at it from home you’ll need your Des Moines Public Library Card number and PIN – the PIN is usually the last 4 numbers of your telephone number. Click here, then click on Auto Repair Reference Center; input your info and go! One flaw is that the database does not provide repair information for every vehicle listed. But it’s pretty dang cool nonetheless.
