Re: Drivers seat replacement for 2004 Redline

What about the seat cover? And can the cushion be removed with the seat still in the car?

Re: Dropping Rear Wheel Drive Diff

Ok, I was reading the service manual of another GM model which said not to move vehicle on it's wheels if the drive axle is removed from the hub. Vue may be different.

Re: Dropping Rear Wheel Drive Diff

Won't the rear wheels fall off without the axle shafts and nuts keeping the bearings together?

Re: Front end clunks or rattles.

Just put everything back together but need to clean the inside of the wheels before putting them back on.

Re: Bushings etc?

If there are differences, they aren't significant enough for aftermarket parts to have 2 versions if OEM parts are discontinued now.

Re: That carrier bearing...

Remove the driveshaft assembly and go for a drive. If the shudder goes away, you know what to concentrate on.

Re: 04' Redline front end vibration

Check swaybar bushings and end links, tie rod ends, struts and strut mounts, ball joints and control arm bushings.

Re: What brand front control arms to buy?

Went with AC Delco Professional line. Read the reviews on the Moog R series and most say to stay away.

Re: Another new VUE

Re: Saturn Greenline as a PHEV

Not familiar with the Greenline, can it run on just electric like a Prius, or is the electric motor just a booster like on an Insight? Does it shut off at red lights? Is the A/C compressor off then...

Re: Stubborn wheel bearing hub assembly 2005 Vue, help!

Just started on my 04. Took 3 whacks of the hammer with that tool to loosen and remove the right hub. I know it shouldn't be that easy. Guess the left one will be harder.

Re: What did you do to your VUE today ?

Changed the brake fluid. Fluid was pretty clean already but the reservoir had plenty of crud inside so removed it to clean.

Re: Catalytic converter replacement

No, not the sensor. Install spacers.

It prevents an overly sensitive ECM calibration from tripping the 0420 code.

Re: 2007 Saturn vue making vibration noise from 50-60mph

Crawl underneath and check the Drive Shaft Center Support. Try to move the driveshaft up and down. Shouldn't be any major looseness.

Re: Catalytic converter replacement

Just install an O2 sensor spacer first before spending that much money and aggravation. 9 times out of ten it will keep the code off.

Re: 3.5 sale price

Re: 3.5 sale price

https://www.copart.com/ and https://www.iaai.com/ plus of course Ebay and Craigslist. Might have to do some searching to weed out the wrecks from the mechanical problems.

Re: 3.5 sale price

Unless it's a Redline, I'd find a more valuable car that needs an engine to spend my time doing a swap on, but that's just me.
