  1. Thanks jca4 I have since bought a second hand one which works ok but would still like to rebuild the original one. So I will check some brake shops and let you know how i go.
  2. Hello all Does anyone know where I can buy a brake booster repair kit VH395 for a XE. 2 diaphragms and 2 seals. Part numbers: VH2579 VH2580 VH2581 VH2582 Cheers.
  3. Thanks guys most appreciated.
  4. Quick question. Does a brake booster VH356 off a XC fit a XE? Any answers appreciated.
  5. Hi guys My XE fairmont ghia is up for rego and wondering what is required to obtain a club permit Cheers
  6. Hi guys I recently acquired a AU ute with the 260 boss motor and sounded fantastic but for a RWC I had to put a resonator on to quieten it down. Now you can hardly here it. So I'm asking has any one used one of these exhaust bypass systems and are they any good? https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/3-Inch-Electric-valve-Performance-Exhaust-Cut-out-Bypass-Cat-Back-Remote-Control/152609647014?hash=item23883e69a6%3Ag%3AgngAAOSw4A5Yz0ex&_sacat=0&_nkw=exhaust+bypass+3+inch&_from=R40&rt=nc&_trksid=m570.l1313&LH_TitleDesc=0
  7. Looking forward to this tutorial but where do you buy the diaphragms.
  8. Hi all Need some help with a brake booster out of a XE. I don't want to spend $400+ on a refurbished one, so i'm after a kit with the diaphragms but can't find anyone that sells them. Does anybody know where to find one. If not is there a later model booster that will fit for example XF or later. Any help appreciated. Peter.
  9. Well for $28 the Pedders check was good value. Turned out to be the LH eye bolt was loose, and they tightened it for FREE. But the rest of the check ranging from adjusting wheel bearings $40 to various worn bushes added up to more than the ute is worth. Cheers and thanks again.
  10. Thanks for those ideas, but all appear to be ok. To me anyway. Booked it into Pedders for a check tomorrow and i'll let you know if they find the problem.
  11. Thanks for that came off with a bit of persuasion, but all bolts on the torque convertor are tight. Forgot to mention it's a ute, but all rear suspension is good and tight. Could it be a engine knock? It's only a intermittent noise on acceleration but not in neutral
  12. Thanks I'll check the rear bushes tomorrow Where is the inspection plate? I know where it is on a FMX & C4, but BW 35 is not removable. Appears to be one piece. If that makes sense.
  13. Hi guys The problem I have in my xe 250 cross flow & bw-35 auto is a loud knocking when I accelerate round a corner. But not all the time. Cruising at 100k's no noise. I'm thinking maybe torque converter bolts loose. Is it possible to check/tighten the bolts without dropping the tranny out. Any help appreciated.
  14. Yea I am a novice when it comes to gas just needed to be reassured. Smithy's in bayswater fitted the gas and the fuel gauge to the original petrol gauge. Looks a bit different now with a face lift
  15. Thankyou thankyou you seem to know more about my car than i do.
