Remove the vent cover to expose the raw opening of the vent. Do not change your selector switch, opening up internal junction points could cause the item to fall further into the system. Place the hose of a shop-vac into the exposed opening, and using a rag, plug up the remaining open spaces around the hose. You should be able to remove the item at this point by simply turning on the vacuum. It may take a couple tries of turning off and on again, depending on how complex your duct system is, and how deep the item has fallen. But, you'll get it eventually. In your case, the item is very light in comparison to the relative surface area that with react to the vacuum, so this should do the trick.

SOURCE: 2007 HHR Wiring diagram

is there spark? is their fuel? also if it was wrecked chances are that the fuel cut-off switch was triggered. i have not ever worked on one so i don't exactly know where it is but i would check behind the fabric/hard plastic right rear/left rear wheel hosing and see if you can hit the reset switch. another suggestion is go to napa or oreillys and get a repair manual for it it has diagrams and schematics in it and it cost about 20 bucks.....good luck please rate this.....thanks

SOURCE: 2007 air filter replacement

The headlight assembly is accessed from inside the fender well. There are two pop out plastic rivets and a small (4mm? head) body screw that secure the fender liner to the fender. Those need to be removed. Pull the fender liner back enough to work your arm into the fender. Locate the wiring to the headlight and grasp the plug. Rotate it to the left until the bulb is free of the reflector. Pull the lamp and wiring out from behind the fender liner. Remove the bad bulb. There is a release tab on the plug. Insert the new bulb into the plug. DO NOT touch the bulb glass. The oil from your skin can cause the bulb to explode when it gets hot. Hold the plug and work the bulb and wiring back to the original position. It is a little easier to look through the headlight lens as you work the bulb back into the reflector. Turn the plug to the right until it is properly seated. Replace the two pop out rivets and the body screw.

You should replace the headlights in pairs. I didn't and the right bulb went out in a couple more weeks when the weather was much worse. The right bulb was more of a pain to replace than the left, probably because I am right handed.

Hope this helps.

SOURCE: 1999 Suburban, A/C on warm air from front vents, cold air in rear

The car uses the same freon in the front as it does in the rear. If the rear a/c is working, you either have a plugged evaporator in the front unit, or perhaps a bad heater switch. Try switching the heater to hot and see if it blows even warmer air from the front vents. If so, the heater switch is working and then it sounds like a plugged evaporator or maybe a plugged orifice tube. That is a good place to start looking. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: water sloshing around in the vent, leaking onto passenge floor.

There should also be a drain tube or hole below duct work on outside of firewall or maybe even lower.

I have 2007 hhr and the code is p0171


This code is triggered by the first downstream (front) O2 sensor. The sensor provides a reading of the air:fuel ratio leaving the engine's cylinders, and the vehicles powertrain/engine control module (PCM/ECM) uses that reading and adjusts to keep the engine running at that optimum ratio of 14.7:1. If something is not right and the PCM cannot maintain the 14.7:1 ratio, but rather there is too much air, it triggers this code.

Some bulbs are really tough to remove on this car. Specially the front side lights. You have to first remove the panel in front of the tires. Hope this helps.

couple things it could be something as simple as a pencil down the defroster blocking the blend door that seperates the condensor coils from the heater core it lets in varing amounts of air hot or cold depending temp setting. blend door is probably clicking if fan is running.make a hook out of a short piece of wire,coat hanger ,but only 8 or 10 inches long work it around through the floor vent opening . not a fish hook just a small circle bent 2 a 45 degree angle if u can bump the obstruction while switching hot 2 cold and floor 2 defrost it should work down and fall out the floor vent

Changing the air filter on an HHR


    To change the air Filter on an HHR:


    It will take some time, so be patient.

    1. Disconnect the air intake hose to the filter box. It is at the left rear of the box as you look at it from the front of the car.

    2. Disconnect the MAP sensor wiring.

    3. Disconnect the coupling to the engine intake.

    4. The filter box is help in place by two ball and socket type retainers located on the back corners. Grasp the box and lift up firmly to lift it free,
