My 2003 Ion does not have FE1 suspension from what I gather but will a control arm for FE1 fit my car?

FE1 Control arm differences?

What is the difference between control arms for non FE1 and FE1 suspension? I have an early 2003 Ion and most of the control arms I see advertised seem to be for FE1 Suspension which my car does not...

Re: SC1 To Ion compatible parts?

fold down passenger seat on 2003?

Did the 2003 Ion have a fold down flat passenger seat like 2004+ did? Searched for a 2003 manual but had no luck. 2004 owners manual shows that the passenger seat folds flat which can come in handy...

Re: 2003 ion oil leak near alternator

Good to know. I did end up changing the crank seal and over torqued the bolt a bit to be on the safe side. Youtube videos made no mention of that so I will recheck it and change if required.

Re: 2003 ion oil leak near alternator

Not leaking from valve cover or PCV. What else could it be? Crankshaft seal maybe? After checking some Youtube videos I think the crankshaft seal is in fact the culprit. Will verify and order one...

Just noticed an oil leak on passenger side near the alternator on my 2003 ion and the alternator is covered in oil. Where could the leak be coming from? Have only had the car a few months and it has...

Re: SC1 To Ion compatible parts?

Will try using a cd cleaner but failing that I guess I'll have more figuring to do.

Re: SC1 To Ion compatible parts?

Took out the Ion radio and it has different power connectors than the '99 SC1, so definitely not a direct fit. Tested the Ion cd player and it spits out all cds, original and copies burnt with mp3...

Re: SC1 To Ion compatible parts?

So an original double DIN radio/cd player/equalizer from a '99 SC will fit in my 2003 Ion? Saved the Infinity component speakers I had in the SC1 and would like to use the radio too. For some reason...

SC1 To Ion compatible parts?

I'm scrapping my '99 SC1 and was wondering if any parts are compatible with a 2003 Ion. Specifically the radio, electric door locks, electric window mechanism, and wiper motor.

Bought a 2003 Ion and key won't open trunk

I bought a 2003 Ion recently and the key included only works in the ignition and doors, not the trunk. After a little googling I'm guessing I got the valet key and that's why it won't open the trunk....

Re: brake hose to brake line union?
