Question about 2006 Pontiac Vibe
The entire roof is pitted with rust bubbles, probably 30, ranging in size from nail head to a silver dollar. One body shop recommended replacing the entire roof panel, at a cost of about $2500.00 Does this amount sound reasonable, and do I have other options? Thank you so much for any advice.
We also have a 2006 Pontiac Vibe and have had not had any problems with the paint or rust. If you bought it new, take it back to the dealership and find out why this has happened. Otherwise, take it to 3 to 5 body shops and get estimates as to the cost of repair. If you plan to keep the car, get the best possible job done, but if you plan to sell it in the next few years then just do enough to get by.

notorious done if before, remove the door panel. BE CAREFUL WITH BEAUTY CAPS, CAN BE EASILY BROKEN (PLASTIC) when you remove the door panel go ahead and closed the driver door and activate the door lock button. you will see the bracket is either loose or it off. it looks the a coat hanger when you stretch it out. Reconnect it and lithium grease, test it and its a wrap.

SOURCE: Quick Strut for Pontiac VIBE?
Another option is buying a strut and taking off the existing one and have a shop switch springs for you. I did that recentlly myself and Pepboys charges 40 for mounting the springs on a pair of struts

SOURCE: replace clutch
the axles are held into the trans with internal "SIR" clips, they just pull out, you need to pull straight out in a quick snapping motion, they can be very difficult to remove

I recomend servicing the transmision every 50,000 miles. ie: drop pan replace filter and gasket, clean the sump. A flush also gets more of the fluid changed but I would do that in conjunction with a normal service.

you can get direct replacements from a dealr or patern parts from a bodyshop,as they are part of the chassis, the last thing you want is a cowboy fitting them, get em done properly ,unless you know about welding that is.....and inject with rust inhibitor after fitting.
