Question about 2007 Chevrolet HHR Panel LT New Cars

1 Answer

Front Windshield On my 2007 HHR, the front windshield has developed "white" crystals, small bright specks of something. At first I thought this was tree sap, but whatever I've tried to remove it has not worked. I've tried Vinegar/Water, Rubbing alcohol, Goo-Gone and Simple Green. I was recently told that maybe this windshield was not factory installed and in this case as I am fully warranted, the windshield needs to be replaced. I also noticed numbers which seem embedded on the driver back window after washing the car. Is it possible that these "specks" are inside the glass - not the interior glass of the car. Driving into the sunlight is very difficult as I cannot see. Thank you for any assistance you can offer.

Take it to a glass shop and ask them to examine the windshield, they will not charge you for this, if the glass is defective due to a manufactured in defect try the dealer, or call the hot line listed in your owners manual, if you are given the run around by the dealer go over there head and ask the factory representative to inspect the window defect, make sure you tell them it is a safety issue, if all that comes to naught, try your insurance company, they are pretty good about replacing windshields over issues like this, but I think your best bet is the factory rep or the dealer.

In my 2007 Saturn Vue there is what I think is an air pump which is cracked that one port is not connected to anything.


There is a electric motor that pumps washer fluid . Located in the bottom of the washer fluid tank .
Wash Operation (Front and Rear Wipers)
The front and rear washer systems use the same windshield washer fluid pump. When either the front or rear wiper is in the washer position voltage will be supplied to one side of the windshield washer fluid pump (depending on whether it is front or rear), while the other side of the pump is grounded.
At this point, the windshield washer fluid pump sprays solvent onto the windshield. When the front or rear washer is activated, the BCM receives an input from the switch that is activated. The BCM will control the wipers while in the WASH mode. The BCM will control either the front wiper relay or the rear wiper relay to turn on the wipers. The windshield wipers operate at low speed for 3 swipes and returns to the park position.

When turning on the washers do you hear the motor run ? Have some one try it while you listen at the washer fluid tank ! These pump motors do go bad .
turn OFF the ignition.
Disconnect the harness electrical connector of the windshield washer fluid pump.
Connect a test lamp from the windshield washer pump control circuit to a good ground .
Turn ON the ignition, with the engine OFF.
Press the front washer switch.
Does the test lamp illuminate?
YES or NO !

2009 Chevy HHR water in floor passenger side front and back after heavy rain car was just sitting all day not driving where did 2 inches of clear water in floor come from,


The high-level intake at the base of the windshield directs rain water through channels behind the door pillars to the street. If the channels become clogged with leaves and debris, the rain water can leak inside.

Vibrating noise from the dash at higher speeds


I've experienced a rapid frequency vbibration that sounds like it comes from the front left dash. I isolated it as the small plastic molding on the outside of the windshield, just below the windshield. There is a small plastic strip like molding piece that ends near the end of the windshield. I used some double sided foam tape sandwiched between the bottom of the molding and the plastic piece belwo it and that solved the problem. I have had to replace the tape every year or so

Where does the windshield washer go?


The washer fluid is in the same container as the front washer, under the hood.

Is there a problem with the wiper operation in the rear washer/wiper?

Front windshield defroster not engaging on 1999 - 1500 Silverado


i just went thru this problem with my 95 1500. on mine it was the controls just like you discribe on yours one for fan one for temp and one for settings.first i thought it was the heater blend door acturator. its located on left side of heater next to the gas peddel. pulled the wire plug out and test for power theres 3 wires to this plug one white one brown and one black. the brown wire was hot with key on the black is ground and the white is the one that sends a siginal to this electric motor witch redirects air flow from floor to dash vents to defrost. i had to order the controls thru autozone 135.00 with shipping. you might get lucky and find one at a bone yard the ones in my area dident have any. i almost bet you will find thats your problem too. good luck OLD SCHOOL.

Front windshield wipers wont work


there may be two relays but you'll need owners manual to know for sure. yes there is only one fuse for the wipers, i thought you didn't know which one it was. but i'd check them all any way just to make sure. sometimes several things are on a fuse. if it's not that i'd say it's the wiper motor. try wiggling the wires connected to it and see if they come on.
