Re: 2003 Vue, 2005 Vue or kiss Saturn goodbye?

Was going on Bearing service #14 at 128K when I finally sold mine.

The ones installed in the winter months did not seem to last at all.

It's becoming criminal what the used market is...

Re: 2003 Vue Front Door Speakers

I could have looked, though no longer have the VUE, the speakers in the LW lack bass.

Re: 02-05 saturn vue All 4 headlights on?

Re: Does a failing brake light switch cause more than one problem?

This is the first vehicle that I can actually hear this switch go on, very slight delay upon pressing the pedal.

Re: L300 Service Wrench with Brake Warning Lamp On

Fixed (about a month ago), actually easy to remove with a small needle nose.

Initially I accidently reinstalled the bad one & the light went off briefly until I got to the end of my street.

Re: L300 Service Wrench with Brake Warning Lamp On

99% sure bad switch, now just getting the old one out.

Disconnecting the switch makes both lamps extinguish.

Re: L300 Service Wrench with Brake Warning Lamp On

Everything is difficult to reach!:)

The tabs accessible from the side opposite the connector I assume?

It slides in a square chamber through the center of the tank from your description.

Re: L300 Service Wrench with Brake Warning Lamp On

$10.76 @ my local Auto Zone, correct, not bad on the wallet at all, I don't order online anymore.

The trick will be getting the old one out. :whoa:

Re: Newsworthy VUE...

Says it's never left the vehicle, but I wonder if he does the fluid exchange to Honda's or GM Specs.

Quite impressive, I wonder what the undercarriage looks like.

Re: 2 tires or Replace all four

A few years back, they (my oil change & sometimes tire dealer) refused to put the bad ones on the back per their independent study, I would think you want the traction in the front.

Re: L300 Service Wrench with Brake Warning Lamp On

OK, disconnecting the sensor (finally, I needed a small screwdriver to pry it off), turns both lamps off, so the issue is in the sensor.

Is that a proximity type sensor that is separate from the...

Re: L300 Service Wrench with Brake Warning Lamp On

So this switch is NO (normally open) then, & is that the only 2 items that would trip the Brake lamp (Low fluid & the parking brake switch)?

I've had catastrophic double line failure in a car...

Re: L300 Service Wrench with Brake Warning Lamp On

Yes, exactly what it did in November, about 300 some odd miles ago. It seems like the Brake lamp trips the Service lamp, or vice versa. It did need front brakes & had low fluid at one point, yet we...

Re: Any ideas? BAD RIMS & FAKE CHROME

I found 2 cans of this, it's sort of a finish or overspray "leveler". It lasted for a couple years on my 5 spokes (after fine wet sanding) & the wheel surface started "hazing". Never used it on the...

North Carolina, he's probably going to be OK. :)

These really couldn't handle the adverse & aggressive chemistry.

Re: 2007 Saturn VUE Blend Door Actuator Location

I found the blend door was rather poor on my '06, I could never get a good blend between floor & dash (either mostly dash or mostly floor) & I understand it was inherent to the design.

Re: Any ideas? BAD RIMS & FAKE CHROME

No, this was a like a very thin lacquer coating so the wheel would have to be extremely clean, any brake dust would be sealed under it. I wet sanded the facings &/or used a 0000 steel wool then...

Re: Any ideas? BAD RIMS & FAKE CHROME
