Vy ls1 s2
Hi guys,
since picking up my vy S2 S in july 2004, brand spanking from the factory, (had factory sunroof and lsd ordered and also cosmo paint, which dealer had no floor stock) i've only had a problem with the front passenger actuator and now a squeaking when engine is cold. i've been told though that the squeaking is most likely due to the cold weather. i think it could be that, or maybe the idller pulley. is anyone else having the same problem?
I have same car car
shouldn't make squeaking noise I lived in Canberra I had same noise turned out to be fan belt after I got told to change the idler pulley which I did but squeak still there so used a belt grip spray lasted two weeks squeak came back so changed belt and ac belt no noise but have been told check harmonic balancer as well

Guys I hate to do this as I know how much I hate it on fora I admin but I need to look at a VY tomorrow and I know bugger all about them. It's a V6 VY wagon with low KMs (107,000) what do I look for? I'm not worried about little stuff like ball joints, bushes and the like but what big-ticket items are on the list of stuff I should pay attention to?

Me? really well, beat him down to a grand for a nice wagon, couldn't be happier. One little clunk in the front that will be a tierod end (I'll do it next week) and I had to fix a couple of p=spots of rust (nothing thru the steel) and it drives great and everything works. I'll post some pics in a sec, busy with some FB stuff for work and I need to pull them off the phone.
