How to fix a Chrysler Pacifica Shifter Knob Stuck in Park

by @ 1:25 am. Filed under Duratrax Warhead

If your Chrysler Pacifica is stuck in Park and you can’t squeeze the trigger to get it out of park, I’m here to help. It is absolutely rediculous that the dealership wants $73 for this part and it seems to be on backorder (must be a bad design, sounds like they need to do a recall!). I’m going to show you How to fix a Chrysler Pacifica Shifter Knob

First, remove the shifter knob by using a small allen wrench - there is a small allen set screw at the back of the knob. Actually, you’re not removing it, you’re just loosening the screw enough to slide the knob right off of the shaft.

Once you have the transmission shifter knob off, remove the trigger by pulling the trigger right out of there…just tug on the trigger a bit, it is simply resting in a little plastic slot.

Once you get the rubber (not plastic, rubber) trigger piece off of the inner plastic trigger mechanism, you will need to very very carefully pull that inner plastic trigger out, past the leather edge (see pic below, by leather edge I mean right there where the orange thing is that you’re going to add), to where you can work with that white tip that is hitting the leather edge. You will need to slip a shim of sorts over that white tip. See, the problem with the design here that Chrysler left us with is that the piston inside that knob eventually goes up too far into the handle. Once it goes up too far, the trigger piece will no longer slide in to make the piston go down, rather, it will hit flat metal. What you are doing is shimming that trigger to make it hold the piston down to where it will not slide too high.
Wont Come Out of Park
Now that you have the white plastic trigger dangling outbound and you have easy access to that tip that you just got past the leather edge, you will need to slide a tightly fitting shim over it. I found that using a rubber cap worked really well…just cut a small piece of a cap like this off, slip it over the trigger tip, then CAREFULLY work the trigger tip with shim on back into the housing.
Do us all a favor and send this, facebook this, tweet this and blog this to as many people as you can - tell them to visit www.ashburg.com and stop paying the stealership the rediculously high prices for simple fixes!

How to open a Yamaha Zuma 50cc Scooter Seat Trunk Compartment

by @ 1:19 am. Filed under Yamaha Zuma

So I got my new Zuma to my garage from the dealer and for the life of me I could not figure out how to open a Yamaha Zuma 50cc Scooter Seat Trunk Compartment. The seat or trunk compartment on the 2009 Zuma 50cc is the only access point for the fuel (which was getting low!) and the oil filler caps. Whats more, the Yamaha Zuma instruction manual was IN the seat compartment - in the very trunk that I could not open!

I looked all over the internet for the information…any information on how to open the seat. I found a few great resources, but nothing specifically about how to open the trunk.

After banging on the seat with my hand while turning the key, pushing the key, turning the key on and off, etc etc, I decided to just take the scooter back to the dealer the next morning to, in my mind, “fix” a broken switch or something.

I digress…before I decided to throw in the towel, I called the dealership and spoke to the fella who sold me the moped. He said “turn the key to the left” to which I replied “I did!”.

So anyway, being a mechanically minded person, I was insulted with my own lack of knowledge on this matter and frustrated that there were no GOOD explanations online as to how to open the Zuma Trunk! SO (drumroll) for your amusement, here’s how to do it:

Step 1 - Put the key in the ignition
Step 2 - Turn the key to the left (that’s counter clockwise)
Note 2 - Turning the key to the left, your instinct tells you that you’re going to break the key off in the lock - not so…

Thats It!

I answer my email - if you have any questions or want to join my little Zuma Club of online buddies, email me (find the contact me area of this blog)

See ya!
