  1. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    This cold snap has wreaked havoc on my cruze. It's not as cold today as it was yesterday. Anyways my passenger side wiper arm doesn't move at all. By hand, I can easily slide up the wiper with no resistance. On the driver side you can't slide up the wiper as there is resistance. I even cleaned...

    I have a 2014 Cruze LT 1.4, automatic with 52,000 miles. I received the dreaded PO299 code for underboost.The car was real sluggish and shifted hard. I removed the heat shield and found that the waste gate actuator arm retainer clip was missing. After speaking with the dealership who told me...

    My '12 fired the p0299 code about 200 miles ago; car has 111,500 miles so out of warranty. I checked waste gate pivot arm and there is hardly any play so I cleared the code and it came back today. I would like your thoughts on what else to check before I drop $500 on a new turbo. There is NO...

    How-To: Upgrade to Whiteline Control Arm Bushings Overview: Over time, the control arm bushings on your car will get worn and soft. In addition, the OE control arm bushings are soft to begin with for comfort. Soft or worn control arm bushings cause the wheel to gain positive camber in hard...

    Is it possible to get a larger armrest on the center console? It's not a huge problem since most of the time I either have my right hand on the wheel or on the shifter but when I do rest it on the arm rest... there is practically nothing there. Are there replacements I can buy? Thank you

    So my dog decided she wanted to chew up the fold out arm rest in the back seats today. Does any one know where I could get a replacement arm rest (Black & leather)? Also does any one know how to take out just the arm rest and not the whole seat?

    I noticed a rattle in my 2012 Cruze and could tell it was coming from the passenger door. After looking around some I lifted up the little rubber cover inside the "handle" that you use to close the door and the hex screw in the bottom was completely loose, as in I pulled it straight out. the...

    I'm looking to replace my front right control arm after I verified it was bad (ball joint) during a recent alignment check. According to the alldatadiy.com service manual, all 4 bolts are to be replaced. I have attached one of the steps as reference. It seems odd to me that GM would use TTY...

    Hi all, I have owned my 2013 ECO 6MT for almost three years now and feel embarrassed to say that I only just noticed this the other day while cleaning my wiper blades. The driver side wiper arm has a strange extension on it and I don't know what it is. It appears to be an extra attachment and I...

    Issue came up on a pro board to excessive wear on these components, thought about this board as well, so will just copy and paste my response. "Road salt is miserable on control arm and sway bar bushings, costing us billions of dollars per year. Now some states are saying each ton of road...

    last year we had a hyundai sonata hybrid. did not like the car so traded it for the cruze. one of the things i did like about the hyundai was the wide arm rests. the cruze is a bit short in that area. so has anyone modded these or are there after market door panels that have the arm rests wider...

    I've had my cruze for about two weeks now and my only complaint so far is the arm rest. The center console is so far back that I have to move my elbow back behind my body to rest it on the console/arm rest. This isn't very comfortable. Has anyone heard of any kind of aftermarket arm rest that...
  15. Gen1 Powertrain
    Hi, I have a '12 Cruze Eco. I love a lot of things about the car, but the springy shifter, and sloppy motor mounts need to be corrected. I was wondering if anyone has modified the selector linkage (Sorry if that's the wrong term). If you look at the picture below, I believe that if you...

    That center arm rest always struck me as a big piece of crap. So today, I pushed the button and it popped right out. I haven't called the dealer yet.

    For me the armrest is too small. If I have 4th gear, I reach it, but not in 5th gear. I was wondering, if it was possible to take the armrest from an Astra or Insignia, as they share parts of the cockpit. Who knows, the holes in the armrest cover might be the same? Atleast the older Astra have a...

    I keep reading that the Eco deletes the rear armrest for weight savings, yet mine has one....what gives?
