    Sunroof seal replacement?

    I've read many posts about leaking sunroofs and understand that some leaking is within normal limits. However, if the seal gets damaged or is dry-rotted, is it possible to replace the seal? I've not found any posts about where to buy, or how to replace the seal. Is this possible?

    Automatic 1st - 2nd shift flare?

    nobody?
  4. 2004 Matrix XR, 1.8 Auto: get a shift flare between 1st and 2nd. Shifting fine in all other gears. Is there a linkage adjustment that will fix this? Any suggestions?
  5. I get a shift flare going from 1st to 2nd. Are there any cable adjustments that control this? I found that my car has not had the ECU recall done. Maybe this will fix the problem.
  6. I owned a 94 Corolla and was familiar with that car/motor. I'm looking for a 03-05 Matrix now and would like to know what I need to look for as far as issues with the vehicle. Most of these will have 100k+ miles on them. What tends to go wrong at 100k miles? Are there any specific problems or issues I need to look for when checking out a used vehicle? - I've seen something regarding the oil pump, which is critical. - I've read where this motor has a timing chain, instead of a belt, which doesn't need to be replaced every 100k miles - But, I also see where many are replacing them. Is this necessary? - What about CV joints, steering or suspension parts? Just looking for input as I start my quest. These cars are hard to find. I really don't want to deal with a used car dealer or broker, but can't find many for sale by private owners. Thanks
