    Re: So... What is wrong with your NEW SRX?

    Which part of that is the baffle? The doors or the motor? Or is the baffle pretty much motor and door assembly? And when searching for a replacement part what do I look for? Like I said I searched variations of "heater/heat baffle" and found nothing.

    Thanks.

    1st one is motor for baffle, 2nd is to regulate temp.(adjusts coolant flow). I'll look for some pics to post.

    Upper, lower, right side, or left? Both of my lowers were cooked at 27,000 miles (groaning with suspension travel) but no issues since and I am at 82K. The clunking up front on mine was due to worn insulators on the front sway bar, also replaced at 27K and no problems since due to suspension.

    Both from lowers. I replaced the sway bar links and bracket bushings 6 months ago. Checked those today and all are still good. Swapping them out tomorrow since their warranted through a parts store. Im having the noise come from the front control arms for sure. Wd40 and a prybar test. Driver lower.

    Whiplash, I just wanted to let you know that the Customer Service team nearest you is available to follow up on any lingering concerns you may have post-appointment at the dealer. This link gives you GM of Canada's contact information for both phone hotline and online communications: http://www.gm.ca/gm/english/corporat...actus/overview

    Re: So... What is wrong with your NEW SRX?

    ^Thanks. I spoke with the technician and its the MODULE KIT. Air Conditioner (Complete).
    Stock Code
    88958097

    The part itself is is $120, but he said whole dash has to come apart and would take 12-14 hrs. And at $109/hr + 13% taxes, I will be cold in my caddy this winter unless I figure out how to change it myself.

    Based on what I have read previously on this forum on worn control arm bushings, the lubrication will quell the groaning for a short period but the groaning racket (very annoying) always comes right back. I have been wondering these past 55,000 miles why the factory-installed control arm bushings and the front sway bar insulators only lasted 27K miles but the dealer-installed replacements (so far) have been holding up.

    Whiplash.....$1,646 (14 hours) in dealership labor? For swapping out the module kit? So you can have heat? I wonder what a private automotive HVAC specialist would charge. Second opinion is definitely in order on this one.

    Yeah the lube only lasts a few hours. It was only used to pinpoint which bushing was making the noise.

    Yeah. I will look at all my options today. I will not pay that much for this to get fixed. At least now I know what the problem is for sure.

    Dielectric grease works well and removing bushing mounts isn't that difficult.

    My car is doing same thing with no heat on passenger side. Works fine in summer. Was going to replace actuator motor but the dealer is telling you about a kit? Please let us know what part actually corrects this.

    Re: So... What is wrong with your NEW SRX?

    I really don't know which exact part is the problem. But I'm assuming you need to buy the complete kit to fix it.

    This was the PN they gave me 88958097.
