Re: 2004 broken antenna base

Dear cthomasparr, apparently the rooftop aerial is subject to rust. It suddenly fell off my Vibe on Saturday! My impression is that if the base is still there, all I have to do is screw in a new mast. Is that correct or is there more to it?

Re: Water leaking from driver side headliner

Dear Jolt, I think you hit the nail on the head when you asked about windshield replacement. What is amazing is that there is no water till you move the car after a rain. When you move forward, you get a flood. My analysis is that the hollow windshield posts fill with water and overflow when you mov...

Re: Water now leaking from both sides of headliner!

Dear Vibrologist, sorry, I missed your reply before, but will reply now. Actually, a photo will show nothing but a wet spot where the front windshield posts meet the headliner. The leaks are showing up right at the juncture. What is amazing is that there is no water till you move the car after a rai...

Re: GOOD wiper blades

I bought all three on eBay. All were US vendors, and all shipped promptly and were decent quality and refillable. I had to go to two vendors, because the vendor for the front wipers didn't have the rear wiper, and vice versa.

All three totaled less than $17 including shipping. JC

Re: GOOD wiper blades

I recently bought a 02005 Viber, with strange blades. All three blades are worn out. You can't replace just the rubber on these blades, so I went to Autozone, and they wanted $33.67 for replacements. Pep Boys wanted $32.07. I am used to paying less. Anyone have a good source for replacement of all 3...

Re: Tailgate interior plastic cover comes loose

What I did is take the plastic cover loose, and put duct tape around the pins. It is just enough of a fix, as long as you don't slam the tailgate too hard. JC :lol:

Re: Water leaking from driver side headliner

Dear lannvouivre, thanks for replying. Do you think it can be fixed by prying the two grommets (both sides) off and using silicon caulk? JC

Water now leaking from both sides of headliner!

:cry: Dear Fellow Vibe Owners: I had previously posted that Water was leaking from my driver side headliner, and that the car has no sunroof. I experimented and used a little tape to cover the end of the long rubber grommet on the roof, as I thought that was the source of the leak. It worked, but is...

Re: Water leaking from driver side headliner

Sorry, I forgot to mention there is no moon roof. The leak is just inside, maybe coming from the black rubber grommit by the rails on the roof.

It is dripping on my thigh when I drive. I checked for a blocked drain, but there none by the driver door. Has a...

Re: Tailgate interior plastic cover comes loose

Dear Derf, thanks for your reply. Yes, I think you are right. It is the plastic pins. But it looked like they were built into the panel. It appears that a friend slammed the tailgate too hard. I haven't taken the panel off, as I thought maybe I couldn't get it back on. Where can I buy the plastic pi...
