Re: Stereo Question

OEM head unit, or aftermarket? Do you have another head unit laying around you could use to test with? If nothing else, you could check wiring continuity with a 9v battery: ...

Re: Diff gasket? NLA?

Thanks, good to know. Haven't had to open up too many diffs in my day, and both times I did, I had a gasket to stick em back together with so I never had to think too hard about it.

Re: Diff gasket? NLA?

I may end up doing that at least as a starting point, but I kind of wanted to check out the condition of the gears as well - make sure they're not chewed up, the limited slip unit is in place /...

Re: Climate control / HVAC dead, stuck on full defrost

Thanks :cool: although I'm now wondering what exactly caused it to kill itself. Old age? I didn't inspect the electronics too closely, although I did open it up in order to swap faceplates (since...

Re: Different kind of sunroof problem

It's not a difficult job. The biggest problem I encountered was the 30 year old plastic trim clipped into the pillars. My front pieces came out mostly OK, but most of the clips sheared off of the...

Diff gasket? NLA?

So the '92 I'm fixing up had a Level 10 4.44 transmission swapped in back in 2005 (which I actually do have the paperwork for), and it seems like it is working well. According to the logged mileage,...

Re: Climate control / HVAC dead, stuck on full defrost

So I got into the parts car over the weekend to pull the sunroof assembly so I can fix my sunroof problem once and for all, and decided to pull the HVAC controller while I was in there to see if...

Re: Different kind of sunroof problem

Well, just for closure, this is now resolved. Ended up dropping the interior trim, dropping the headliner, and swapping the entire busted mechanism with the working one from my parts car (also...

Re: Dates for Reading 20

I think it'd be fun to go (never been to Reading!) and it's only about 200 miles from me, but my '92 is all kinds of busted right now and time is limited to work on it. It's all dumb stuff though,...

Re: Climate control / HVAC dead, stuck on full defrost

Thanks, this is helpful. I can't find my DVOM at the moment, so can't check voltages until I locate it but I was able to go in and unplug the Timer Control Unit in the hope that was the problem. ...

Re: Climate control / HVAC dead, stuck on full defrost

Thanks, good tip. On the list of things to check when I can get into it again.

Hi all, sick of me yet? :tongue:

The climate control / HVAC was working fine when I powered it up late last summer...

Re: Different kind of sunroof problem

Thanks guys, not feeling ignored or anything, I get that this seems to be a relatively uncommon problem. Not the end of the world or anything, but I'd like to be able to fix it eventually.

Brake caliper rebuild - information dump, aka things I wish I knew beforehand

So in my quest to get my '92 back on the road, I found that the brakes were all shot from sitting around for 10 years. Decided to replace everything - calipers, rotors pads. The rear calipers were...

Re: Help with plug / connector ID

Re: Help with plug / connector ID

Thank you both! Makes sense, this car had nonfunctional brakes when I got it. The rear lines had rusted out and all of the fluid had escaped. Maybe the PO unplugged it to prevent it from cycling...
