    The front lights are prone to water intrusion and corrosion. It is also possible you have the wrong bulbs in them.

    While the procedure in the manual and the bulletin is good, IMHO it is lacking. It assumes the anchor pins have been properly adjusted and both latches achieve "second locking position"...

    It is also possible you have a bad brake hose and it is acting like a check valve. When the caliper gets hot it builds up pressure and drags the wheel. Point here is if the car is acting normal and...

    The only way to know for sure how good the hubs are is to fit a new half shaft into the hub's splines and see if there is any looseness. In fact, the half shafts could be OK and the bubs are worn.

    More than likely it is a combination of wear in the hub AND the shaft splines. You may have to replace both the hubs AND the half shafts.

    Check the pressures in your tires. The correct pressures are on a label on the glove box door. If that doesn't fix it, you need to go to a shop with an alignment rack. Also check the date codes on...

    The cover hinges have to be moved forward. Remove the rear bulkhead of the package shelf and you will see the nuts under the hinges. Loosen them and move the engine cover forward a bit.

    Heat didn't kill that pump, not in 50 miles! You must have gotten a hold of a defective one. With many parts being manufactured in China it should not be a surprise. Even the Bosch parts are not made...

    If you don't mind spilling a little, you do not have to drain the whole system. You could use locking pliers (visegrip) to clamp off the hoses but there is not a whole lot of room to work. If your...

    Not really a definitive way to bench test the alternator. You really should put a load on it. You could have bad diodes or a faulty regulator. If the alternator does test good you could have a wiring...

    Bearings are confirmed 6203 and 6200. On my alternator I saw goo dripping out and thought my voltage regulator failed like in the pictures. Very common. Once I got it apart the voltage regulator...

    A "proper" repair involves cutting out the rusty, rotten pieces of metal and welding in new pieces. Anything less is just covering up the rot. It's like cancer, if you don't remove it, it will...

    It's the outer bearing race and it should come out without pounding, just some light encouragement with a blunt, soft punch and small hammer. Do not hit it on the bearing surface.

    Besides a wrench to remove the seat from the car you will need a "Hog Ring Plier". It is a plier with a groove in the jaws to hold the ring easily so you can close it. You will also need a supply of...

    If you have the wrong F/D you should check all of the fuel system to make sure you have the correct parts. It matters. The parts were designed for the Delorean and the car will never work right if...

    Should not be too hard to fab up a bracket. You can use the other side as a guide and just make it the other hand. It is just a piece of bent up sheet metal with some holes in it.

    You can use a punch and make a mark and count the # of turns but since you have the whole thing apart it can't hurt to do the adjustment. It is possible it was not properly adjusted before you took...
