How do you change the tag light on a 2003 Pontiac Vibe?

I just did it. I broke the lamp holder which cost 31.00 at the Pontiac dealer and 21 at the Toyota dealer. I suggest you first remove the elector corrector which easy. I suggest you pop the entire rectangular light assembly out by pushing on the relase flange (this is reached from the inside after removing the access panel) and pull the light box out from the outside. Once removed, remove the connector assembly, install the new light, reinstall the the connector assembly with light, connect the power, and lastly reinstall the entire assembly into the body of the hatchback door.

What causes the flap above the compartment air filter to open and close constantly when the car is running How can you stop it?

HVAC Recirculation

I believe it's the HVAC recirculation door actuator that has busted. You should just buy a new one.

Answer

I believe it's the HVAC recirculation door actuator that has busted. You should just buy a new one.

There is a small electric motor that opens and closes the recirc air flap. The internal limit switch fails and the motor keeps running (flap, flap...). Try turning on the recirc button, it will stop. The motor costs around $40, but it takes a couple of hours to replace (first time) 'cause you have to remove the upper dash. Instructions with photos are online (sorry, you'll have to search).
The servo motor has a simple gear drive and the problem is that one or more teeth on the largest gear have broken off. There are no limit switches, the circuit senses current draw and cuts the power when end of travel resistance is met. Many online folks - myself included- have been able to repair the problem by removing the servo, opening it up & by rotating the gear a half revolution - giving the servo a new lease on life. Be cautious when opening the servo, the retainers are fragile - but duct tape around the whole thing does hold it together if a couple tabs break off. You don't have to remove the dash as is widely stated. Going through the removed glovebox access works fine. NO tools needed to remove, just flex the sides out and voila (instructions for that are in owner's manual - check under "replace cabin air filter". Need a 7/32 (5.5mm) socket and compact 1/4" ratchet handle - and patience. Under half an hour and you're off and running like new. Good luck!

How do you disconnect the seatbelt alarm on Pontiac vibe?

Doing this will also disable your Low Fuel alert, your Dash Illumination, your Low Oil Pressure light, as well as your Seat Belt Alert. I would STRONGLY advise against doing this, but if you have more money than sense...remove the 10a gauge fuse in your fuse panel. Again, in the stongest sense, I advise against doing this unless you want to be stranded for lack of fuel, blow your engine for lack of oil, and not be able to see your dash at night

Who is the girl in the Pontiac commercial?

If you mean from the 70s/80s "You got it, Pontiac!" commercials, she's a Canadian model. I remember reading an interview article about her in a magazine, can't recall the details. I believe that the model's name is Debbi Ducharme

My name is Davey and I just wonder if the OP might be incorrect.... I wondered about this for quite some time and thought it was a toss up between Mariska Hargitay and Rachel Ward. I didn't see any info on Wikipedia about Hargitay doing commercials whatsoever... but Rachel Ward DEFINITELY did some car commercials... So can anyone confirm one way or the other??

Davey here again... another possibility might be Sela Ward....

Where is the internal fuse box on a 2006 Pontiac vibe?

Lie on your back with your butt on the seat and your head near the brake pedal. Take a flashlight with you. Looking up, you will find it to the right of the steering wheel. There is a cover on it, which you can snap off. Then the trick is trying to remove any of the fuses in that tight space. I'm a woman with small hands, and even then it is extremely frustrating. VERY poor design choice on their part.

What size wiper blade is the rear blade on the 2003 to 2010 Pontiac vibe?

The 2003-2010 Pontiac Vibe wiper blade sizes are 26" drivers side, 17" passenger side and a fairly specialized 11" rear wiper that is difficult to find in the stores. See sources and related links below for more information. Since there are currently over 22 different wiper arm attachments, do not buy wipers just by length only - be sure to lookup exact wiper blade part numbers by vehicle make, model and year for the brand wiper you decide to purchase. This ensures correct length AND correct attachment.

How to reset the service engine light on the Pontiac Vibe?

Did you try to disconnect the battery cables and let the car sit for a minute or so? If so, when you did, did the light come back on? If the light came back on, you would need to find the root of the problem in order to get the light to come off. Mine stayed on for several months before I finally discovered that it was time to change the air-intake sensor. Once replaced, I haven't seen the little light pop up again!

How do I change the rear wiper blade on a 2005 Pontiac Vibe and what is the size?

Bend the metal strip in the blade and slide it out of the prongs. It measures 10 and 3/4 inches. Only needs a little bend, can be replaced and straightened easily. I HAVE NOT BEEN ABLE TO FIND THE CORRECT SIZE REFILL.

The above only refers to changing the rubber blade not the whole wiper blade which I bought from Canadian Tire for 12.00. There are no tabs to push, and no tools required.

1. raise arm to service position

2. apply slight pressure to rotate the blade further than what it freely does. i.e. grab the end of the blade and apply slight force away from window.

3. When the blade is at about 70 degrees (not 90) from the direction of the arm, it simply slides out of its slot with no force . (away from the arm)

How do you replace headlight bulb on 2003 Pontiac vibe?

'''Replacing '''headlight bulbs on Pontiac '''Vibes

OK - I've done this - no tools needed unless you are '''replacing the plastic lens. The space is tight around the coolant reservoir or battery area, but if you are nimble, you can '''replace the bulbs without removing equipment.

To '''replace the bulb, unplug the socket from the headlamp.

Remove the rubber dust boot from around the bulb's base.

Slightly bend the side of the retaining spring clip which isn't seated with a screw - it will pull back from its tab and swing out of the way on its hinge.

The bulb is now free and can easily drop - pull it out carefully.

Make sure your new bulb isn't touched by your finger prints or other grease/oils - if so, cleanse with alcohol. If a halogen bulb gets smudged, it will shorten the life of the bulb due to hot spots on glass where the smudge was.

Once new bulb is '''in place, hold it down '''in its seat, being careful not to let it drop or get smudged, while you reapply pressure with the spring clip.

Reinsert the clip under its tab, reinstall the rubber boot, reconnect the socket, and you're done.''''''''''''''''''''''''
