Holden Barina 2001 FAQs
Check out real-world situations relating to the Holden Barina 2001 here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.
Holden Barina 2001: Brake pads and discs need replacing?
Have you noticed how well your car stops compared with those you were probably running around in 20 years or more ago? That stopping power has come courtesy of a number of improvements, including greater friction between the rotors and pads, and that has been achieved by softer pads and softer rotors. That unfortunately comes at a cost of increased brake wear in general and the need to replace rotors on a regular basis where we once almost never needed to.Show more
Holden Barina 2001: Static on AM stations
Some AM stations don't have a very strong signal and that, in combination with the tiny roof-mounted antenna on the Barina, leads to problems. The longer the antenna the better the reception, but modern cars don't have long antennas that would solve your problem. It would be worth checking the antenna connections and mountings again to make sure water hasn't got in. And check the signal amplifier at the base of the antenna. Finally, unscrew the antenna, insert a coat hanger in its place and check the reception with that. If it improves the problem is with the antenna, so see if you can find a longer antenna.Show more
Does my 2001 Holden Barina need a new clutch?
By 'rides' I’ll assume you mean 'slips', which then slowly allows the car to build up to speed (as in, the rest of the car catches up with the engine). There are two major causes of this, the first is a clutch that is out of adjustment, and the second is a clutch that really needs replacement.
The problem you have, though, is that even if the clutch on the Barina is adjustable (and some clutches aren’t) the fact that you’ve been driving it with the clutch slipping suggests that you’ve already damaged the clutch to the point where it would need to be replaced anyway. Continuing to drive it can also put 'hot-spots' on the car’s flywheel (to which the clutch attaches) and that can mean the flywheel also needs to be resurfaced when you replace the clutch.
I reckon, at the minimum, you’re looking at a new clutch kit. Ignoring it will eventually wind up with the clutch expiring completely and you walking home.Show more
