I have a 2012 Holden Colorado, fitted a second hand towbar and now the electric windows won't work, airbag light is coming on...any thoughts of how to fix? thanks

Hi Karen First off are you sure these issues were not there before tow bar was fitted? I am going to assume your answer is yes they were not there. There could be many areas where the fault may have occurred. We will start with the easy areas (1) check ALL fuses that you can find replace as necessary, you may have shorted out a fuse. Does a fuse blow again if yes you have a short to ground. This could be a pinched wire when fitting tow bar, it could also be a wire connection that has been incorrectly fitted to the wrong terminal. Has any holes been drilled into the floor pan or chassis rails is there any wires close by that may have been damaged when drilling. Has any screws been fitted into floor or chassis. If screws have been fitted into floor remove them and try again.
(2) disconnect Battery and leave for 15 minutes reconnect and try again.
(3) if on the first check all fuses are ok, go to number (2).
If the above does not help contact an auto electrician to come and have a look as other damage may have occurred. This fault has occurred whilst fitting or testing tow bar so the fault must be due to installation so in theory if everything was removed it should rectify the fault. Good luck.

I have a 2016 Jayco Melbourne. Has anyone put stabilizer bars or anti-sway bars on one?

they are fitted at all good caravan shops
The bars use a special hitch and are tensioned up onto hooks on the A frame
a definite must for caravans as they improve ride stability, reduce swaying and take the load of the rear end of the car making it level again
Take the van to a Jayco service shop or any caravan shop and have them fitted for better safety and road control
any caravanner worth his salt has them fitted

Torsion bar came off while driving cant seem to get keys back in right

jack the vehicle right up so the wheels are well clear of the floor
place vehicle on lack stands for safety
undo the torsion bar adjuster screw right off
turn the torsion bar with vice grips , stilsons etc until you get as much movement as possible in raising the wheel
slip it in the splines
lower the vehicle then adjust the screw until the vehicle is level

I didn't mark the torsion bar when I took it out, how do I install it without the marks

jack the car right up with the wheels off the floor
install the torsion bar with the adjuster bolt unscrewed all the way off
fit the bar and lower the car back onto the floor so that all the weight is on the torsion bar
it should be sitting a bit low at this point
adjust up the adjuster bolt to when it sits level
if there is not enough adjustment the jack up the car again
let the adjuster right off an this time use a pipe wrench ( stiltsons ) to turn the bar against the stop plate a spline then insert it into the housing
this preloads the bar before any adjustment
lower the car and again adjust the bolt

How to fit bull bars on VW Transporter T5

AS the fitment of bull bars to vehicles negates the operation of the air bags , this operation should be left to the experts who have designed the bars to not affect the safety systems of the vehicle . IT may appear expensive but consider what your life is worth if fitted incorrectly.. There are plenty of Off road shops who sell and fit bull bars so talk with them as to how it should be done.

Replacing sway bar. cannot get new sway bar to propper position. how do i get it to fit propperly?

Your old sway bar made of tubular steel. New sway bar made from solid steel. You have a frame under engine the sway bar attaches too. This frame also supports your engine and trans mounts. Follow frame and there are 4 bolts securing same. Mechanic I watched supported engine underneath. Loosen back bolts though not removed. (please note sway bar has arrow that bar can only go in one direction) This maybe your problem. Attach bar to frame and fitting's. Best if you raise front end and remove both tires. Good luck

Nudge bar

I don't know what a nudge bar is, but it is not likely to fit. There were big changes from 2004 to 2005.
