    Hi, first post. I'm trying to identify a wheel.

    First off, I've had Google send me here plenty of times for all kinds of questions relating to my cars and I've always found an easy to follow text or video guide showing someone who's not too great with cars like me exactly what I needed to do to fix the problem I was having. Just searching...

    VS Ute Right Rear Wheel Squeak

    Hi guys, I had the rear brake pads changed in the VS V6 ute and around 3 weeks later the right rear started to squeak (hard to explain, more like a squeak and tap and rattle all in one) no matter what the speed.

    Hi guys, You'd think this would be easy but I can't take my wheels off! I've taken off all the nuts and the front wheels won't budge. It's like it's fused or stuck to the hub.
