How difficult is it to Change break pads on a 03 jetta. Do you need specials tools?

I’m pretty handy and have changed breakpads on my honda but have just bought a 03 jetta and would like to work on that also. How difficult is it, what special tools are needed,and what are cost of rotors? Also how do you do it?

basically the same as any car,no Special Tools needed..

Is there a solvent I can soak dirty tools in to clean them?

I have old gummed up, rusty, oily, dirty tools that I’d like to clean. Do they make some sort of liquid I can soak them in to remove all of that without eating away or messing with the integrity of my tools?

Get paint thinner from the hardware store. It is the closest thing to the solvent used in Safety-Clean parts washers.

How did the Industrial Revolution impact American society economically, socially, politically, and morally?

I’m suppose to write an essay in History about industrial revolution but I’m not sure how it impacted society. Help please?

The United States originally used horse-powered machinery to power its earliest factories, but eventually switched to water power, with the consequence that industrialisation was essentially limited to New England and the rest of the Northeastern United States, where fast-moving rivers were located. Horse-drawn production proved to be economically challenging and a more difficult alternative to the newer water-powered production lines. However, the raw materials (cotton) came from the Southern United States. It was not until after the Civil War in the 1860s that steam-powered manufacturing overtook water-powered manufacturing, allowing the industry to fully spread across the nation.

How to remove a bolt in axle shaft WITHOUT any special tools—Do it yourself

Heres a short tutorial on how to remove a bolt in axle shaft from a rear end without the need of a slide hammer or any kind of special pullers.The rear end shown in this video is a DANA 35 in a Jeep Cherokee. Ford 9 inch rearends are similar. PLEASE NOTE*** If your axle flange DOESNT have the access hole to remove the bolts as shown in this video…The rearend is likely a C Clip rearend and this method WILL NOT work,and the diff cover will need to be removed to access the C clips.

New TxDOT Safety Traffic Tools to Increase Safety for Motorists & Highway Construction Workers

With safety being the top priority at the Texas Department of Transportation, the agency is raising awareness of three new tools designed to help reduce crashes, fatalities and injuries on Texas roadways. The Safety Tools — Automated Flagger Assistance Devices (AFADs), temporary rumble strips and flashing-yellow, left-turn arrows — are now being used in Texas and will see expanded service throughout the state in the coming months.

What special tools will I need if I want to install a new piston kit?

Will I need a Special Tools for the head bolts and to place the head over the new piston and rings once installed?

When you do a top end rebuild it is essential that you replace all
the gaskets with new ones.You should be able to get them as a
kit from your motorcycle parts dealer.The only essential tool you
will need is a torque wrench to make sure you get even pressure
when you pull the head gasket down.The only other problems
you may encounter is fitting the new piston rings over the new
piston as they are very brittle and also removing the gudgeon pin
from the old piston so that you can fit to the new one.

How many of you think a filed course for hunters safety is a good idea?

Even though it is not required in texas i think that a Field course in addition to the regular hunting safety course is a good idea. Exposing new hunters to potentially bad situations in a controlled environment think would reduce the chances of bad situations getting worse in the field.

Mine had a game warden station, belligerent hunter, bad shots, etc..

What do yall think?
@lana- you are right in that it would be a huge headache I was just lucky in that mine was at a local gun club.
@lana and Staap it. I see both of your points about the places necessary to hold such a course. How about a video at least showing each of these that way minimal resources are consumed and the video can be played over and over? I also understand each state has different regulations so 50 different videos will have to be made but that is a lot less resource consuming than a full field day course.

Lana has a very good point. I used to be one who ran the classes for Hunter Safety Course Instructors in our state. Making it difficult for new hunters to comply with and receive a first time hunting license is not what anyone wanted to do.

I ABSOLUTELY agree, the courses are lacking in many areas. But, think how many hunting trips it took you as a new hunter to learn all you needed. A week long, month long course would simply be a detriment to most new hunters. Though I wish we could start them out at that level.

Unfortunately, we have to stick only to basics. Safe gun handling practices, how to hunt with others while afield, and the states certainly like their regulations of course. Much time has to be spent on these areas alone.

This IS very important stuff, especially with so many kids not being able to learn from hunting with Dad as we did. I think it is important, and we should as sportsmen be willing to and spend some time helping new hunters learn. This is our heritage, this is certainly one thing I would like to pass along to others growing up. I sir, am simply not wise enough to be able to explain how we could do it. This would be well worth some thought.

Additional : Yes, sir, I think that would be a great idea. At one time the NRA had some VHS tapes I had used in conjunction with some courses. They had one that was amazing to go with the Eddie Eagle Course for kids. It would be very simple to format the scenarios depicted, as teaching tools. And with DVD could even be interactive to provide choices of the next lessons direction. Kind of a go, no go, thing. Answer this way would take you into this direction, and if answered differently takes you to this demonstration. Making it possible to use the lessons repeatably in leisure time I believe these would get allot of review. Much like these modern video games. Make it interactive, and I believe that would cause some additional viewing just to experiment with the way the DVD works. To design it would simply be as a tree format or an outline. Following this branch takes you to the next part of the course. That sir would be a very good idea you have.

What were the Factory conditions like in the industrial revolution?

What were working conditions like in britian? During the industrial revolution and how the became better? Thanks in advance

Hi again,

-The factories were very hot
-Poor ventilation meant it was hard to breath
-No safety precautions, workers were often injured or hurt
-cramped conditions and being bent over all the time lead to deformations
-12-14 hours of work a day
-No clocks allowed, no idea of time
-employers hired men to beat workers not doing good job
-Due to fibres in air, many people got lung disease
-Kids and women employed because they are smaller and get less pay
-Kids crawled under machinery to get rubbish they were called scavengers
-Kids mended the spinning machines while they were still on
-Workers often hurt, a lot!!!!!
-In mines, it was hard
-Kids employed to sit in the dark as ventilation openers, men miners, women haulers

It changed with workers trying to get rights, the establishment of unions ect….
