Re: Headlight Issue(low beams)

I had a pair of Hellas blow faster than that. It surprised me, but it happens. What can you do but open that pain-in-arse front bumper?

Re: Where are the Vacuum lines for Seafoam 3.6

Sir, I went through this myself. There were no lines. Just pour your sea foam into your gas tank. Mission accomplished. I promise.

Re: difference between door locks ,2008 Saturn aura

I went to an audio shop that had their own actuators. They don't bother taking out the factory ones. They put in their own and cut the wiring on the old one, hence, bypassing the factory ones with...

Re: difference between door locks ,2008 Saturn aura

Find a local car audio shop. They likely can bypass the actuators. Two of my doors were done this way.

Re: Purchase Advice: 2007 Aura XR

I do apologize that I misspelled the thread title.

Re: Changing brake pads myself: difficulty level?

That is a better tip than I had hoped for. I did not know that was going on now. Although they are made in China, are there any that you would still trust?

Re: 2008 Aura Dome Light Cover Removal?

You can pry it off. It will feel like it might break, but it is just seated in a bracket attached to the roof. You will be just fine.

Well, my pressure test came back negative. No leaks were found. I am starting to suspect the water pump, but I need some help to pinpoint such an issue.

Re: Door lock trouble and possible repair manuals

I did it two ways.

1. I ended up buying replacements through LKQ, and a shop installed them. Not cheap as you are paying $200-300 per actuator then.

2. My car audio shop said they bypass...
