Question about 2006 Chevrolet HHR

WRECKED 2006 CHEVY HHR

I wrecked my HHR on Monday 2/16/09. A lady turned left in front of me. I hit her in the side on my Passenger side. It was driveable. That same day I took it to the Body shop to get an estimate. It was $4500. I asked while there about a "rub" in the front left ttire area and was told it was tire to plastic. It would be okay to drive. I drove the car for 7 days, 200+miles, until the next Monday when I dropped it off at the shop to start repairs. The whole time it ran like **** and drove even worse. Today, 2/25/09, I get a call from the body shop the car was in worse shape than they thought, or appeared. The front area has shifted 3 1/2 inches towards the drivers side. They commented about the possibility it may have twisted the Unibody. New estimate is $6500. My insurance already cut me a check for the $4500. What should I expect the insurance to do? I am hoping it will be totaled. I do not want to drive a car that has been wrecked this badly. During the accident I was only driving 20 mph or less. I know this isn't a FIX it question, but I hope someone can shine some light on the subject for me. Thank you in advance for your assistance.

    I forgot to say that when the found the other problems, one of the other things was the radiator had a big crack in it. 200+ miles I drove this thing like that. There were no signs of leaks, hopefully not. Also the drivers door has been rubbing on the molding along the windshield. So much that is wore the paint off.

I bought a 2004 liberty that was wrecked in front on passenger side the battery is fully charged but i have no poiwer to anything im lost could the sensors on back of core support cause this problem


No power to anything will be the battery or the battery cables. Make SURE the battery is fully charged. Have you tested it with a proper amperage draw? Make sure the battery positive is clean and tight as well as the battery negative hooked up properly from the battery to the vehicle ground and is clean and tight

My 2008 chevy hhr only has one front wiper working. The arm is connected, and the driver's side works fine on all settings. The passenger side doesn't move. Whats wrong?


There is a link bar under the cowl (plastics under wipers) the bar has plastic sockets on each end that connects the left side(where the motor connects) to the right, so...when the left wiper moves it transfers the motion to the right

Wrecked 2004 suburban how do you measure the frame to see if it is bent , car was hit on passenger side bent frame horn to the right. set off the air bags.


Well you can measure from the lower front balljoint with a tape measure all the way back to the middle of the rear axle housing on the same side,then do that for the other side your measurements probabley won't be the exact same on both sides but should be within about a 1/4 of and inch.Then you can do the cross measure way by taking the tape measure and going from the left front lower balljoint to the right rear axle housing then do the same for the other side.This should also be within about 1/4 of an inch.

Airbag light goes off when passanger seat in use, & on when not


even with exchanging the sensor the calibration could be off. without pulling codes from the airbag system it would be hard to guess for sure but id say you need to have the dealership do a recalibration on the seat

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
