    Sticking Calipers - Brake Pump?

    Haven't had time to take the wheels off again like Ronnie suggested, but I will update once I am able to do so. It's not the front brake hoses though, as I said in my first post I had them replaced to no avail.

    Turn signal problem

    Turns out I had a bulb burned out in the back that I overlooked. Replaced that, and my issue is resolved.

    Turn signal problem

    Having the exact same problem with my '90, signaling left works fine but right will not flash. No bulbs seem to be burnt out. Does anyone know if the OPs issue was resolved?

    Sticking Calipers - Brake Pump?

    The pump does run, and it seems to be holding pressure well. I haven't done the fluid drop test yet, but I will go and do that right now. The accumulator was recently replaced so I have done a few of these tests already.

    Sticking Calipers - Brake Pump?

    I actually flushed the system myself before bringing it to the shops, so the brake fluid is still fresh.

    Sticking Calipers - Brake Pump?

    I've had my Reatta for several months now, and although it was incredibly poorly maintained it and doesn't make financial sense to keep fixing it, I've grown attached to it. That said, I've hit an issue that may scrap my car. Both front brake calipers are failing to retract all the way from the rotor and as I understand it, they have been for longer than I've owned the car. Obviously it has negatively impacted the braking of my car and I can't take it on the highway. I've taken it to several shops and the brake hoses and calipers on the front have already been replaced, but the best anyone can tell me is that there is some sort of problem with the brake pump. Basically, what I need to know: Is the brake pump easy enough to replace for an inexperienced owner? Is it worth buying a $400+ pump when the car itself is only worth around $1500? Thanks to anyone that can help, I would really like to keep this car on the road as so many of them have disappeared already.

    Accumulator Grief

    You are right, I confused the fuel pump with the brake pump. Turns out I'm just impatient, as the lights went away after 45 sec and did not come back. Brake pressure is still good, takes 5 pumps now for the brake pump to run and the pedal doesn't sink anymore. Thanks to everyone for their help.

    Accumulator Grief

    I installed my new accumulator and followed all the steps correctly (I thought), but I am getting mixed results with it. While the pedal no longer sinks to the floor like it used to, now both brake lights turn on and stay on whereas before they would only flash on as the pedal was depressed. When I turn the car on, I can hear the pump go on for a few seconds and quit but I can't figure out why the lights won't go off. Here is the accumulator I ordered: https://www.ebay.com/itm/ABS-Accumulator-Ball-Delco-25528382-Compatible/311491977981?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2060353.m1438.l2649. I bought it before any of you had mentioned the WABCO unit, and while it is a bit larger in height and diameter, it does seem to fit just fine.

    Accumulator Grief

    After replacing my front brake calipers, I belatedly decided to test my accumulator to see if it was the real cause of my braking woes. Unfortunately, all signs seem to indicate that it is on its way out. Where can I get a working accumulator for a reasonable price?

    Do you still have the headlight switch and taillight letters?

    Power antenna switch

    I attached a toggle switch to the pink wire, and it works perfectly. Thanks guys.

    Anyone have a letter K?

    One of the most irritating things about my Reatta is that it is missing the letter K on the tail light. Would anybody with a parts car be able to sell me this one letter?

    Power antenna switch

    Hello everyone. My Reatta is in pretty poor shape, but one of the few things that works great is the power antenna. I would like to install a switch on the wire that powers it so that it will not go up every time I turn on my headunit to listen to CDs. However, I cannot tell which wire powers the antenna. Could somebody tell me which one I should install the switch on?
