    Hi, I have a 2005 GC with stow and go, with around 240km. No , major problems up until now, but recently the heat coming through has been intermittant. Usually after I have driven a couple of kilometers I can feel the warmth, but it seems like two thirds of the time the heat does not come on...

    4th. Generation Chrysler Minivans: 2001-2007
    To get the wiper arms off I use a claw hammer with the head resting on some ply wood (the handle pointing straight up the trick is to give it a couple of jerks/ janks NOT apply constant pressure.

    4th. Generation Chrysler Minivans: 2001-2007
    So it looks like I will be doing this job soon. Can anybody give me some guidance on how much heat to use? Do you heat it until the bolt ends are cherry red?

    5th. Generation Chrysler Minivans: 2008-2019
    One day I want to buy a used 2011, and it might be yours, so please don't jack it up by the seams.

  9. Stow'N'Go spare removal

    4th. Generation Chrysler Minivans: 2001-2007
    Mine was seized pretty good. Must have taken an hour to blow out the sand, PB blaster and wd 40 it and then move it around so it functioned as it should. The wings that hold the centre of the rim up were the worst. For the first ten minutes I didn't even think they moved they were seized so...

    4th. Generation Chrysler Minivans: 2001-2007
    I searched for windshield wipers, and couldn't find anything in the results. So I'm hoping for help, even another search term to use would be fine. The windshield wipers sometimes do not work in my van. Nothing happens when I twist the control arm by the steering wheel. Can anyone help by...
  12. 2005 blower motor removal

    4th. Generation Chrysler Minivans: 2001-2007
    First off thanks to Roninva - This was the best "how to thread" I found - even though I didn't need it. Just adding this on to help someone else. A lot of people said that if your fan works on high only the resistor was likely the problem. My case the fan stopped completely, didn't work on any...

    4th. Generation Chrysler Minivans: 2001-2007
    Just bite the bullet and buy a new battery, batteries can cause weird dashboard problems - I had it on a 2000 GC, and my 2005 GC with the 2005 I didn't even bother trying to diagnose problems even though the battery was only 3 years old I bought another problem solved

  16. 2005 grand caravan - forward parking brake cable replacement - with stow n go seats

    4th. Generation Chrysler Minivans: 2001-2007

So yes, remove the whole parking brake assembly which is a bit of a pita try not to break the parking lever release )like I did. Lay the parking brake assembly on the ground flat. You will see two silver tabs. One of...

    4th. Generation Chrysler Minivans: 2001-2007

  18. Weird headlamp problem

    4th. Generation Chrysler Minivans: 2001-2007
    I suppose it is all personal decisions. For me it depends how much the bulbs are. Previously I had bought extra vision/ silver star bulbs which were over $15 each but I read a review that said they were not really worth the price, and I don't do much night driving so this time I bought bulbs...

    4th. Generation Chrysler Minivans: 2001-2007
    Low beam is dip - I was raised in England, keep forgetting I picked up a replacement bulb today and all is well. either 1) I screwed up and replaced the wrong bulb or 2) there has been a freak coincidence I think the first option is most likely - next time I will write down which one needs...
