#349 of 521 My hatchback is stuck and the radio sucks
Jan 04, 2009 (9:29 pm)
My 2000 Chevy Tracker has served me well other than the inordinate amount of rush along the passenger side underneath the "running board" or whatever. I think I also have to investigate the rust cross beams thing..I paid for that problem dearly when I went to get a brake job last spring.
Now I have a problem with my hatchback not opening. When I put my fingers up underneath to open it...it seems to be already in the "up" position to do so but it does nothing. I dont relish getting gouged on fixing this type of thing at the dealership. Has anyone encountered this problem? I must get this door open so I can just clean out my car and actually use the back seat!
Also, the radio doesn't get good reception. Do I need to replace my antennae? Will that fix it?
Thanks for any help.

I was having the same problem. What I found was the bolts that secure the differential mount to the cross member were gone. Put new bolts in. Problem solved. The tell-tale signs were marks in the bell housing, marks in a support bracket, and dimples in the oil pan from the differential housing mount, driveshaft, and yoke rising under torque. I could see the bolt heads that secure the front drive shaft to the differential yoke were somewhat rounded off. They had made contact with these other parts. Hope this helps Good luck.

The fuel filter should be somewhere between the gas tank and the rear wheel well on the passenger side of the vehicle and above the axle.

#357 of 521 Chevy Tracker 1999 part troubles..
May 20, 2009 (11:12 am)
Hey guys, I have a question about a piece that broke off of my Chevy Tracker 1999
The black plastic lumbar (if that is what its even called) that holds my softtop in place broke off. Tracker parts are hard enough to find as it is, so it may be needless to say that I have had no luck in finding a replacement.
To give you a better idea of which part I'm talking about exactly, it's the black plastic bar where the top of it holds the softtop so it is firmly stretched snug against the metal (closest to the moon roof)
Anyone know where I can find one of these?? I checked all over the web with no luck.
My glovebox handle also broke off, if anyone knows where I can buy a replacement, please let me know
#358 of 521 2000 Tracker Tune Up
Jun 02, 2009 (5:57 am)
I'm getting ready to change the brakes on my tracker and I figure a tune up wouldn't hurt at the same time. So far I know I need to change the plugs, wires, fuel filter and air filter. Is there anything else that needs to be changed at the same time? Also is there a way to turn the lights off? The lights come on automatically and I can't for the life of me figure out if there is a way to turn them off. There is an old drive-in movie theater close by I want to take my wife to but if I can't get the lights to shut off then it's going to be quite annoying if I start the car during the movie. Thanks for any help anyone can give.
