    2003 GMC Sierra 1500
  1. Unfortunately they are leaking. The supply line right where it connects into the nylon tank line. I could just replace that section that goes to the fuel filter, but will eventually rust through somewhere else I'm sure.
  2. I've got the typical rusted fuel lines on my 2003 and was thinking of doing them myself. (luckily the brake lines were already done) I've read that the bracket on the bell housing is a pain, but do I really have to remove the anti-lock control unit and torsion bar bracket/crossmember? I saw that in some directions for replacing fuel lines on an '05. Looking at two section pre-bent lines from Lines-to-go. Thanks for any tips or advice.
  3. Well its not the fastener. Thanks to the good old Northeast Ohio winters, the road salt has corroded the case wall because of this tag. Hopefully I can get some epoxy to seal this leak, although I have been experiencing a growl from 65mph up. Someone has diagnosed a similar thing on their truck as the transfer case. I don't really want to have to replace this thing!
  4. What the heck is this on the rear transfer case half and why would it be leaking? Obviously corroded, but why does it go all the way through? Replacement case halves do not show any holes there. Ideas for fix?
  5. Could "torquing" the rear end cause the pan to leak? Last week, my rear end wheel hopped pulling away from an intersection and that night the pan started leaking. Up to that point had been a perfect leak free truck since I bought it in September.
  6. Muddkatt, I'd be interested to know what you did only for the opposite reasons of GMC-AT. Mine does not chime. I use my seat belt regularly so that's not the problem. The thing I don't like is that there is no reminder chime if the lights are left on.
  7. Chris, as I said I work for Permatex. The red gasket maker is older technology best used on exhaust manifolds as it has a high temperature resistance. The Ultra Grey is much more resistant to coolant. Its the only thing I would use on water pumps. Grey Gasket Maker
  8. Is it wise to replace both upper and lower arms/ball joints at the same time while everything is apart?
  9. My 03 does this when I unlock it. I think its just the switches/relays for perimeter/interior lights and such, and timers for those things firing. Similar things happen when you turn ignition off too.
  10. You were brave using our 1 minute epoxy (I work for Permatex). We have a 5 minute that would have given you a little more time to position the panel. Does the cubby on the GMT800s come out the same way?
  11. Bought my '03 in September with 100K and no rust. Look closely at the body. After careful inspection, it was apparent mine was re-painted. While they did a good paint job, they didn't do very good prep work. Fenders and tailgate are starting to bubble already. I bought it mainly for hauling/towing so the good looking body was a bonus. Not so much now, but oh well. The problems of living in Northern states.
  12. Is this described in the GM catalog as for the driver's side? I need driver's side. The Amazon description is for the passenger's side although there is no picture like the tan version 89045119 (also passenger's side).
  13. Does anyone know the part number for a 2003 extended cab drivers side window switch bezel? The tab is broken off mine and it swings out every time i close the door (drives me crazy). I've found some on ebay, #89045124, but doesn't say that it's compatible with my year even though it looks like a match. GM Part Direct lists two items for my year, 89045119 and 89045121, but both are described as for the right side. Thanks for any help.
  14. Coty, Mine does the same thing. Since I just bought it a few months ago not sure if it's always done this or not. Plan on changing the fluid when it gets warmer.
