    Thatís very cool. I was considering doing inexpensive white/amber switchbacks and skipping the DRL, since I leave my headlights on all the time anyway. The clear lenses were the part that held me...

    Thatís a good idea. I actually have some and didnít think to use it. I expect Iíll have to door open again soon enough and Iíll replace the tape. Thanks!

    Turns out it was a much simpler problem. The power window motor I got had a harness, and I put blade connectors on the end and plugged them into the existing harness. There was a small bit of the...

    Cool, sounds like it's possible to tweak it then. Are there any instructions for the track adjustment (like where everything is in the door)? The workshop manual is rather sparse about it, assuming...
  5. [Electrical] Power window lowerin very slowly, blew the fuse

    My driver's side power window motor died (it was one of the newer designs, which I put in around 15 years ago), so replaced it last weekend.

    Today I noticed that the window was going down very...

    A hammer might work too. Tap the bottom of the LCA to push it up towards the knuckle. The impact might work better than an even pressure from a jack.

    Or you could brace knuckle from above...

    I have the same (I think) UK lower ball joints, and I was able to get the castle nuts to work. For the I uppers I had to tap the UCA down with a hammer to get the shaft down far enough, or is just...
  8. [Brakes] I hadn't done the uppers yet (they were for...

    I hadn't done the uppers yet (they were for another weekend), so the brake line was the simplest choice. When I made the same mistake when I did one of the uppers, I removed the UCA pivot bolt...
  9. [Brakes] Almost nothing. I had put one of the calipers in...

    Almost nothing. I had put one of the calipers in the front frame extension while I was working, and forgot to pull it back through before putting the steering knuckle back on. I disconnected the...

    I have no help to offer, but I have the exact same problem and I haven't been able to figure out what it is.

    In my case, I replaced all the LCA and UCA bushings and ball joints, the front shocks...
  11. [Heat & A/C] I did think I had a leak on the high side...

    I did think I had a leak on the high side connector for a bit. I had just installed a 90 degree R12 to R134a fitting; the straight ones don't fit on my 3.0L compressor while still letting me fit the...
  12. [Heat & A/C] Somehow the idea of a sniffer existing didn't...

    Somehow the idea of a sniffer existing didn't even occur to me. I've ordered an inexpensive one from Amazon that has decent reviews. Hopefully it actually works properly and finds the leak. I'll...
  13. [Heat & A/C] I have a UV light and glasses. They were from an...

    I have a UV light and glasses. They were from an older dye kit I had lying around, and not specifically meant for this specific pre-mixed R134a and dye. I admit that I just assumed they all...
  14. [Heat & A/C] AC leaks out in a matter of days, but no visible leaks

    About two years ago I replaced my entire A/C system, front to back, and upgraded to R134a as part of my 3.0L conversion. It seemed to work fine for the first year. At the beginning of this summer...
  15. [Suspension] I had my TABs replaced years ago when I had the...

    I had my TABs replaced years ago when I had the transmission replaced, so I don't have first hand knowledge of that. When I had to deal with the broken bolt on the mount, I need to take the trailing...
  16. [Suspension] My guess (and it's only a guess, from having to...

    My guess (and it's only a guess, from having to fix a broken bolt in my trailing arm mount) is that it's just hard to get a wrench on the hex bolt vs. the Allen bolt while the automatic transmission...

    I just thought it was good form so you don't see light leaking out between the edges of one door when the other door is closed. A bit of polish more than anything else. I have no idea, though.

    Huh. I thought those diodes were just because all the doors feed off the same circuit, and the diode ensures that when you open one door, only that door's lights go on, as well as the "door ajar"...

    Welp, the LCA bushings are toast. That explains a lot. The other stuff I replaced, like the steering rack, needed to be replaced anyway, so I don't feel too bad about trying to fix this problem...

    [Suspension] Vibration when braking or hard cornering

    I've been trying to figure this one out for over a year now:

    After the car has been driven for a bit, braking, especially at higher speeds, has a strong vibration. I have also seen it when hard...

    With traditional incandescent flasher modules, the resistance of the bulbs themselves is part of the timing circuit. When you replace them with LEDs, the lower draw of the bulbs changes the timing...

    I've done a somewhat similar conversion, although I relocated my vents to the kneepads and installed a double-DIN radio. The PO likely modified or built a custom air distributor (the front of the...
  23. [Suspension] Broken trailing arm bolt and electrical issue: finale

    Just wanted to post the end result from my now-closed thread:


    Getting the Broken Bolt Out

    To fix the broken trailing arm bolt, I got some 45 degree offset wrenches that allowed me to break...

    NorthEastJBD: I did not. It happened again about two weeks ago, where MS was rapidly switching on and off, as evidenced by the sound of a relay clicking over and over again, like there was a main...

    I don't have a specific suggestion, other than checking grounds and power to MS. I screwed up my MS ground wiring originally, but caught it before I did any real driving. I don't exactly remember...
