    Hey guys, might be dumb question, but will a VT fuel pump fit in a VS tank? It's for an old holden build, running full VT running gear (304, T700 etc), so needed the steel tank to relocate filler pipe etc. Thanks.

    To service or not to service @ Holden to keep 3yr used certified warranty?

    I was dumb enough to keep the service at Holden for my VT years ago. Every service was over priced, and always got calls for urgent repairs that weren't covered by the warranty. The one thing that actually did go on the car during the warranty period was the BCM which wasn't covered as it's an...

    VE heater hose slow leak

    Yeah, a lot of mechanics replace them with brass hose joiners. These are a dumb design and always end up leaking.

    Key issues / error codes

    Hi mate, no mods at all. Car is going in for a service, so will get it checked. From what I have read, it seems quite a few people have had this issue. Thanks.

    Key issues / error codes

    Just confirmed that clearing codes fixes the key issue, as my key is now working again. Still no idea why this happens, perhaps Ricey has some idea?

    Key issues / error codes

    Hey, just wondering if anyone could explain why logged error codes would affect the key fob from remotely opening the car? I've had the intermittent issue whereby the key won't work unless I first unlock the drivers door manually. The key works as expected from then, with all buttons functioning...

    Keyless entry stopped working!!!

    Mine did the same thing. Came back to life after manually unlocking. Changed battery in the fob and disconnected car battery for an hour. All good.

    Rear wheel bearings

    Mate, you will be lucky if the stuffed bearing hasn't also stuffed your axle like mine did. Makes for a far more pricey job. B@astard of a job to do yourself.

    VE SS Drive belt jumpy

    If you mean the tensioner is bobbing up and down check your harmonic balancer for a wobble.

    Holden is totally dead... Little Lost on next steps.

    Try disconnecting your car battery for a couple hours, it helped my recent key issues.

    Questions in need of answers!

    I remember reading that they were selling the ute in USA as an el camino. Have you looked into that option? LHD and would probably be cheaper than an OZ car?

    unlock button oddity

    Hi, Problem fixed, I replaced the key battery and left the car battery disconnected for several hours. Unfortunately, I did both at the same time, so can't advise which did the trick, or perhaps it was both. Thanks for the tips.

    Glove box globe replacement

    Hi all, This is probs a dumba$$ question, but how do you replace the globe in the glove box? I couldn't get the light cover to pop out, so do you need to remove the glove box screws? Cheers,

    Are you putting off changing your wobbly balancer?

    As a final addendum to my addendum, water pump replaced without drama, but had to then replace both belts, they were squealing so bad, sounded like my motor was about to sh1t itself! So in summary, the only things I didnt have to replace was alternator and A/C compressor.

    Coolant leak 06 VE [First Post]

    Belts is one of the easiest jobs. 7mm socket to remone the air box and 15mm to compress the tensioner. If you get coolant on the belts you may need to replace them as they may start squealing like mine did.

    Coolant leak 06 VE [First Post]

    Do what I did when getting the pump replaced, get a full system flush and replace the cap. Should be good then.
