VX SS
Just have a couple question to ask those in the know. Not big issues more annoying than anything and want them fixed. If you know the answer please share. Car is a VX SS.

1. Traction Control Button light doesnt work. Do I need to replace the button or is there a bulb to change?

2. On climate control (not digital one) AC and Demister dont light up. Bulbs or replace unit?

3. Best method of changing headlight globes and how to adjust their height.

4. Easiest way to replace broken aerial.

Thanks for you help. Cheers

1. The Traction Control Button does not have a renewable button according the the gregory's its easier to renew the switch.

2. the AC control and Demister have little lights its cheaper to convert to LED's, see this post http://forums.justcommodores.com.au...1997-2002/23701-blue-led-dash-conversion.html

3. depends on which side head light but its fairly simple its in your manual in the DIY maintenance Section.
