Hey Guys.

Car is a VS Statesman.

1. Knocking while the windows are down. This only happens on the rear doors. When the windows are up it is fine.

2. Squeaky noise while windows are up sometimes, Is there a type of lube i can use on the velvet that will stop it?

3. Air con is strong from center ducts, weak from all others. What is the cause? How can i fix it?

4. I want the inside of my statesman black. I dont like the greyish blue. What are the options i have to make it black?

5. Rain stains on the windows. How the hell do i remove them :S

6. Rain stains on the shifter (the part that says P,R,N,D,3,2,1)

Thanks in advance.

3 is because of how the air has to travel behind the dash and then through the doors (via rubber seal), possibly check for an air leak in the path the air takes or the rubber seals but it'll never be as strong as the middle

4 vinyl dye is probably your best bet for plastics and vinyl, not sure how well it would work on other materials, just a matter of pulling the dash apart and painting each piece

6 may be easier to get one from a wrecked Commodore, pretty sure they're the same... cut and polish may work but make sure you take the plate out first

When i say weak btw. I mean it probolay cant blow out a match.

In the rear vent the air flow is weak. the same as the doors. i have checked for leakes up there but i have no idea. im thinking i may need to take the dash out and have a look.
