Proper service and repair procedures are vital to the safe, reliable operation of all motor vehicles, as well as the personal safety of those performing repairs. This repair guide outlines procedures for servicing and repairing vehicles using safe, effective methods. The procedures contain many NOTES, CAUTIONS and WARNINGS which should be followed, along with standard procedures to eliminate the possibility of personal injury or improper service which could damage the vehicle or compromise its safety.
It is important to note that repair procedures and techniques, tools and parts for servicing motor vehicles, as well as the skill and experience of the individual performing the work vary widely. It is not possible to anticipate all of the conceivable ways or conditions under which vehicles may be serviced, or to provide cautions as to all possible hazards that may result. Standard and accepted safety precautions and equipment should be used when handling toxic or flammable fluids, and safety goggles or other protection should be used during cutting, grinding, chiseling, prying, or any other process that can cause material removal or projectiles.
Some procedures require the use of tools specially designed for a specific purpose. Before substituting another tool or procedure, you must be completely satisfied that neither your personal safety, nor the performance of the vehicle will be endangered.
Although information in this repair guide is based on industry sources and is complete as possible at the time of publication, the possibility exists that some car manufacturers made later changes which could not be included here. While striving for total accuracy, AutoZone cannot assume responsibility for any errors, changes or omissions that may occur in the compilation of this data.
Special tools are recommended by the
vehicle manufacturer to perform their specific job. Use has been kept
to a minimum, but where absolutely necessary, they are referred to in
the text by the part number of the tool manufacturer. These tools can
be purchased, under the appropriate part number, from your local dealer
or regional distributor, or an equivalent tool can be purchased locally
from a tool supplier or parts outlet. Before substituting any tool for
the one recommended, read the SAFETY NOTICE in the previous section.
