VX Commodore crappy fuel hose to injector rails. Apparently the fix is buy a whole new injector rail system not the hose. super cheap auto, in your face Holden.

Hi guys. I have vt 99" executive. I have starting problem every morning or after the engine cold down after few hours. The engine starts when I turn the ignition for second time. Can anyone help me out what will be the problem and also have a little bit of vibration when engine runs. It happen some times only. And also felt my engine under power when I press the accelerate from stopping in junction or when I turn air con on, especially climbing up to hill. Roughly about 80~90 kmh. I just change the engine recently. This problem comes since my old engine. What should I do. Please help.

Ok after a few PM's asking me how this is done, thought I might place a few pics and steps up of how to replace
this latch. Sorry for the limited pics, was running out of battery power, but hopefully you get the general idea.

Pic1.

Open up the dash bin, and in the left hand corner you will see a pin. Remove this pin, it simply just slides
out of place.

Pic2.

Once the pin has been removed, apply pressure in the direction the arrow is pointing, and at the same time
pull towards your body. Dont apply too much pressure tho as the compartment will slide out easy enough to
gain access to the Latch.

Pic3.

Once the compartment is out, this is where the latch sits, push the latch out of position and replace with
a new latch (Can buy them at Holden $12).

Pic4.

Latch been removed from the dash bin assembly.


Now just reverse the procedure, push the compartment back in to place until you hear it clicking back in to
place and push the pin back in to location, and you're done.
You wouldn't read about it both of my cars have a failed latch - less than a week apart and I never use the stupid compartment it just fell open. Honestly such a useless design. Thankfully I've used this procedure before and it works a treat.

How much coolant is leaking is/was it a steady flow or just tiny drips...

I'm having trouble with the indicators not working intermittently in my 2001 VU. Is it a stalk issue or is there a relay or regulator responsible??
