Had to extend front o2 sensor harness. Most of the harness loom/tape was brittle and cracking when I would move it so I decided to do a mini wire tuck and also tucked the vacuum lines/solenoids for vias deleting the vacuum rail for a much cleaner look IMO.

In my 1999 SE car, there was a water leak issue in the trunk, specifically near the passenger side keyless entry box. I noticed the leak when I opened the trunk after driving in the rain. It seemed to be coming from the area where the passenger side trunk hinge meets the trunk or the weatherstripping near the top right of the trunk. Upon investigation, I found that the problem was a faulty gasket in the passenger side tail light.

I managed to remove the tail light housing easily and re-sealed it using a heat gun and following the instructions in the FSM (Factory Service Manual). Dealing with the butyl sealant was a bit challenging, but I removed the old material and applied the new one carefully, making sure to seal the base of the studs as well. After reattaching the housing to the trunk and tightening the bolts, I didn’t notice any leaks during a rainy drive, but the issue had been intermittent in the past. I’ve gone through two rainstorms without major leaks now.

Both my AC and heat stopped blowing air at the time same. Since I had NO AIR blowing at all, I suspected it was the blower motor itself. Usually, when it’s the resistor, you can get air blowing on speed setting #4.

I ordered an OEM-used blower motor off eBay for $30 bucks vs aftermarket. Upon inspecting the blower resistor itself, it was very corroded and dirty. So I decided to order a new blower resistor as well.  Also, you need to ensure you get the correct resistor as there are differences between Digital Climate and Manual Climate controls.

I replaced both and everything started working again. I really only needed to replace the blower motor. But since I saw the condition of the resistor, I decided to change that as well. Now have cold air and hot air. Also, while you’re at it change the CABIN FILTER too. 

Important Note: You should check the 2 blower motor fuses under the engine bay to ensure they are not blown.

Just replaced my axles and seals and if anyone’s looking the correct seal, these pictured are the right ones. Fits and no issues on the 7gm Just incase someone needs to do axles and seals and is struggling to find the seal. These are it. Site only goes up to 2012 and says they don’t fit 2014 but they do. New axles feel good (import direct brand, ***reference only) ***reference only, not selling.
