  2. Set of winter rims with tires, used for 2 seasons, some very minor rust on rims $250. Located in Aurora, ON.
  3. Hello All, I have a 2008 451 Cabriolet. A common problem on this model is the tailgate will sometimes not open due to a part failure. This is the second time this has happened to me, but this time seems to be different. A few years ago I had to replace the actuator, which required me drilling two holes in to the tailgate from the inside so that I could slip in a small screwdriver to release the locking mechanism so this step is already done. I automatically assumed it was the actuator again and replaced it, but it didn't work. I read in forums that it could be the microswitch, which is part of the handle you squeeze to open the tailgate so I replaced it, but this too, didn't work. I have checked fuses and they are fine. As well the front and passenger door locks work fine. I don't know what else it could be. Has anyone else experienced this? UPDATE: Can anyone tell me if when the tailgate is locked does the actuator engage when you grab the handle or does it not function when locked. Does this make sense? I need to narrow this problem down so I need to know if when locked it deactivates the actuator or if the actuator still makes that operational noise, but just won't open (I cannot remember). I am considering replacing the automatic lock mechanism on the right side of the tailgate. It's the last thing I can think of that I can do myself before taking it in to a dealership.

  5. Does anyone have a picture or diagram of where the outside air temperature sensor is supposed to be on the 451 and how to get to it? I have an '09 Passion Coupe that my mechanic has apparently reassembled the front end incorrectly on when they replaced my radiator fan, and the sensor is registering temperatures at least 20 degrees above normal. Also, any diagram/pictures of how the left front quarterpanel is SUPPOSED to be positioned would be helpful as mine is protruding and catching on the driver's side door and I suspect there's a part that they shoved behind part of the frame that should be in front of it instead.
  6. My '09 Passion Coupe has acquired an unusual brake squeal at low speed that appears to be coming from the front right, that only happens when I'm driving less than 20-25 MPH and does NOT occur when I actually APPLY the brakes. When I changed out the brake pads the first time, thinking they might have been worn because it had 65K miles, the pads were actually relatively new but I noticed that a millimeter of material on the outer edge had NOT been worn down, as though it was never in contact with the brake disc (I verified through multiple sites that the brake pads are supposed to fit the 451). More recently I took the Passion in for an overhaul after selling my late wife's Honda, part of which was supposedly replacing the discs and pads up front (they said the discs were corroded but the rear system was fine). For a few weeks there was no squeal but now it's back. Mechanic can't seem to figure it out. I'm wondering if the springs that come with the pads are not holding the pad down firmly enough to prevent the outer edge from protruding from the width of the disc when braking and if there is another unworn edge that might be riding the outer edge of the brake disc creating the squeal at low speed. Ideas?
  7. Looking for a set of used steel rims (or alloys for the right price) for a Gen2 gasser; with or without winter rubber on them.
  8. Hello Everyone. I recently changed my peeling 2009 Red Rally panels for a 2010 Chocolated Brown set. However, the hood wasn't included in. I am looking for a Black used hood, as my tridion is black as well, or in the extreme case of luck, a matching Chocolated Brown. By the way, the Red panels are available for sale, in case somebody wants to buy and repaint them. Located in Calgary-AB. Any help? Thank you in advance. Regards, Leo
  9. So today I noticed one of my DRLs is not working. So what could be causing it? I’m quite far away from the nearest Smart Centre so I would like to try and fix it myself if it turns out to be an easy job. The car has only 15.000 kms/9.300 miles to the clock so I’ll be pretty annoyed if they just burned out. It’s a 3 year old 451 with factory fitted DRLs.
  10. Hello all, I had the great luck to be away for six weeks, south of the equator Please don't hate me Anyway, after coming back to this -20 ºC and below weather, I was not surprised to see the (still original) battery in my car seemed to be discharged. Lights and radio worked but there was no way the engine would turn. I plugged in a battery charger for about 3 hours, plus an electric heater to make sure temp in the cabin (and battery) were above 0 ºC. After that the car started fine and I drove it for about 30 clicks to make sure it got enough juice to start again later on. All this said, it maybe time to change the battery and I had two questions: 1. Any recommendations on replacement battery (451)? 2. Is there a special procedure to replace the battery? (other than unplug old and plug new [such as radio codes, computer reset or such?])
