  1. Merry Christmas!

    MERRY CHRISTMAS to you ! I Like the picture with the REATTA with the old car CHRISTMAS scene ! Thanks for your good work!

    I saw this car at silver auction in nov -17 in phx. bid to $11,000 did not sell !
  3. Just got back

    Yes that happened to me also,I jumped out and disconnected the battery , then someone told me to put the key in the door and turn to unlock ,and the horn quit !

    It is red & tan - I put the vin on Barnys data base ! Body is good- CRT was broken - rt door panel ok - all glass good ! rt seat ok - console cover bad ! good tail light

    Just to let you know,there is a 1988 Reatta in PHX. Pull & Save junk yard on 27th ave that has a good windshield ! ( for $45.00 ) I have 2 spares so someone else can get a good deal !
  6. Just got back

    Glad you had a good trip ! I just made a trip from Phx.AZ. to Michigan & back ! The only trouble I had was a bad tire (had to buy a new one ). When I got back I had 302,887 miles on the clock ! I took tools,and a xtra belt,alternator,crank sensor. This is a 1989, my daily driver.I also have a 1989 with 67,000 miles that stays in the garage most of the time ! I had the transmission rebuilt at 259,000 miles , but haven't done anything to the motor!
  7. fuse #17 on drivers side !
  8. Reatta convertible visor clips

    Thanks Jim ! I got a set in burgundy ,that worked out great ! Will be ordering a set from you in beechwood !
  9. another one junked

    I have always liked Reattas as I came from a buick town. The prices were too high for me,so I wasn't able to buy one till about 10 years ago! The first one I bought had 164,000 miles on it , which at the time I thought was high ! I still have it ,and it now just turned 288,000 ! The only things I did to it in that time was ,struts,master cyl,2-accumulaters (used) , 2 preassure switches ( used ) , alternater, ac compressor, fuel pump,( not because it went out,but as a preventive measure,as the high miles !) maf,power steering pump,cam sensor magnet ,headlight cranks & rollers. I also replaced the seats, ( driver side twice ) , sun visors,& driver side door panel ,console arm rest ,and transmission (at 259,000 miles ) This is a 1989 and I thought id deserved it as its been a good car! I did all the work on it myself (except for tranny ) Didn't do anything to the motor (except plugs & wires I also have a 1990 ,that I had to replace the cam &cam bearings, as the cam broke ( at 99,000 miles ) I now have 9 reattas, includeing 2 converts, my best a 1989 coupe with 67,000 miles ! I value the info I get from you on this fourm & enjoy hearing about others work on Reattas THANKS
  10. check fuse # 17 on the driver side fuse box ! I know it is blank,but that is the fuse that services those buttons ! 20 amp
  11. convertable sun shade clips

    Thanks for the info ! I ordered a pair ! It is great that he is making them!
  12. RWD'ing my Reatta

    Just wondering what bellhousing can be used with the Reatta 3800 engine to adapt to a rear wheel drive manual 4 - speed (going to use it in a off-road app! )
  13. convertable sun shade clips

    I would like to know who sells the sun shade clips ! I know someone makes repros,but can't seem to locate them now. I need a pair of burgundy ! THANKS
  14. turn signal fluction & relay noise

    Just wanted to let you know , the flasher can was the problem! It was not an easy job .I had to remove the console trim and the lower front of the dash to reach the flasher. I had to remove a piece of the plastic under the flasher to have room to disconnect the wires and remove it .I am glad it was the lower one,as there is the hazard flasher above the turn signal flasher ! The turn signal flasher was #323 ,and the hazard flasher is #552 I replaced the turn flasher with #552 as it is heavy duty ( for 2-6 bulbs ) Works fine ! A 91 is much easier to get at,as it is located under the console,just in front of the shift lever! THANKS AGAIN FOR YOUR HELP !
  15. turn signal fluction & relay noise

    Thanks everyone ! I will let u know what worked. A guy wants to buy an old Studebaker I have,so I will have to work on that for a couple days ,then get back to the reatta . Thanks again for your help !
