Re: console lid hinge

@Mark, I saw the outlet but they wanted too much for the whole console so I opted just for the lid. Can I just grab the outlet and harness and slap it into my 07 or do I need the whole console from the junker XRS to make it work?

Re: Arm Rest Console

I have an 07 base model that had a single lid armrest. I found a 03 Toyota Matrix XRS in the junkyard with the clamshell armrest which I swapped into my vibe. It definitely raises up the height of the armrest and the added storage space is really nice. Not too sure on the the amount of height I gain...

Re: console lid hinge

I have a 07 base model and my center console armrest is just the lid that opens to the large storage compartment. I was at the junkyard today and there was 03 Matrix XRS with the clamshell version of the armrest lid. I grabbed it from the yard and swapped it into mine. Its a big improvement for me b...

Where do Nor-Cal Owners Meet?

Any active meets still going on in Nor-Cal for Vibe/Matrix owners? I'm in the SF Bay but never attended a meet before. Any suggestions are appreciated.

Re: 03 vibe diagnosing and replacing motor mounts?

Whelp, I have changed three of the four mounts. Yesterday it was the front mount which is technically on the right side of the engine if you are facing the front of the engine. It was relatively easy to replace. I did end up loosening the fan shroud to make getting the mount out easier. Didn't have ...

Re: 03 vibe diagnosing and replacing motor mounts?

Yeah probably something to do with the transmission types. I think the Corolla, Matrix, and Vibe all rock the same mounts.
