Re: 2007 vue turn signal switch replacement

The left turn reset also stopped working on my VUE. Took all of 2 mins to replace the switch. I appreciate the great job the engineer did making this so easy to replace.

Re: 2004 Vue Passenger Side doors won't unlock when car is warm

I would suspect a possible issue with the BCM, or the wiring connections. I would disconnect the battery and unplug and plug back in every wiring connection on the BCM.

I would bet the manual...

Re: How do you replace the headlight assembly?

Ok.... You might want a second person pull back on the bumper fachia as you pull up on the headlight assy. It's a lot easier with help.

Re: How do you replace the headlight assembly?

Craftsman has a long flat screwdriver 1/4" x 8" that works well to release the locking tab on the headlight Assy. Be careful the plastic breaks easily.

Re: "Shudder" in my 2008 Vue Redline **HELP**

I have always been a firm believer in replacing the ATF at least every 30k miles. Even if they claim if to last 100k or lifetime.

Re: New strut mounts for '05 Vue

I couldn't find any complete strut assy's for a VUE, much less in my case a Red Line which has a shorter spring.

I once had a Buick Lucerne rental with a bad BCM. It would lock and unlock the doors by itself, it wouldn't accelerate, it would tell me that I am exceeding 126 mph. All while not moving. It was a...

Re: Light tint on headlights

Nightshade is more dense and flat appearance. I didn't like the look of Nightshade on my first set of smoked tailights. I ended up sanding it off and repainting them with Testors Transparent smoke.
