I took her into the mechanic and they replaced the crank angle sensor (seemed to...

    Broke a connector in fuse box

    Hey, Long story short I was replacing a fuse that went on me today. I checked all the fuses since I had it open and in removing one I broke one of the small metal arms that holds the fuse in place (I'm not sure what the correct term is, essentially the receiver for where the fuse plugs in)...

    Unable to reattach spoiler

    Hi there, I was having a particularly frustrating and exhausting day/night, couldn't be bothered washing the VZ, and instead decided to just take it through one of those dodgy automatic carwash places as everything else was closed. I figured unclipping the loom and undoing four nuts was easier...

    VY Ute Selector broken?

    Ok, so the symptoms are fairly simple, the gear stick will not move. It will only go from 4th gear to Neutral, aside from that. No movement at all. I've been given split advice. One person suggests that it may be low on transmission fluid, whilst another has suggested that it could be a...

    Broken door lock and antenna motor.

    Hi all, when I press unlock, the drivers door lock stays in the locked position but the door unlocks. I had a look, and the little thing that bobs up and down is just freely sitting there. I pulled it out and there's a metal rod with a thread on it. It seems weird to me because it isn't long...

    Broken glove box handle

    Hi guys, Just wondering if anyone knows how to replace the glove box handle in a VZ; the opening mechanism is broken. A new one from Holden costs $27, for labour they'll charge me a further $45. The labour charge is a rip-off in my opinion. Would replacing the handle be as easy as a DIY...
