  1. Not sure what that is, however you can access the 71 Service Manual here: http://www.buick-riviera.com/ Just scroll down the menu on the left to the "Restoration" section and you will see it there. Then you can open the section you need.
  2. When all the windows quit in my 71, it was the power window relay. They pop up on ebay once in a while.
  3. I got the seat covers for my 71 from Distinctive Industries. I have the standard bench seat and was surprised to find them. You can take a look here for yours. I spoke with the nearest distributor to ensure what they had was what I wanted.
  4. OMG! OMG! OMG! http://rivperformance.editboard.com/t7381-write-up-blower-motor-control-module-replacement Thanks, Ed!
  5. Thanks guys. I'll have another look. Got step 1 done but cannot for the life of me see either the connector or the module. If the manual is too expensive and vague at that, I just might take Ed's other suggestion to let my fingers dial the garage. Given the pain in the neck from the first look see, twisting and contorting, it may be worth it to let someone else try it. Will try the Riv performance group first. Cheers!
  6. If the expert is stumped, then I DO need to purchase the ol' chassis manual.
  7. Where the deuce is it? Research in this forum and on the interweb places it in several places. Under the passenger seat? Nope. Under the hood by the blower? What blower? Under the carpet on the passenger side? Now they're just having fun with me. Under the glove box? Likely. I removed the panel, contorted myself but still don't see it. Where can it be? Pictures or a diagram would really help. A map would be even better. Thanks in advance.
  8. Ad must have been pulled because I can't find it on CL Nanaimo. Two ferry rides away for me in Gibsons IF there was something to see. Good catch.
  9. This is probably why they were banned: https://youtu.be/lLuNstLjP1c?t=40 😎
  10. Had the front and rear chrome done in Cloverdale here: superiorelectroplating.com Not cheap but filled a small hole in the rear bumper and I was satisfied with the results. In 2010 the cost was slightly north of 2G for both bumpers. Mind you, the 71 has more chrome than a first gen.
  11. Hi Tony Here are two links to listed events in the Vancouver area: http://www.autoeventlist.com/ http://autoeventsbc.com/ As for events back east, someone else will have to chime in. Too bad you couldn't bring that beautiful 71 with you on your visit. Enjoy your stay!
  12. I think the heart in the windshield is a nice touch.
  13. Is it this one? Not sure of the origin of these pics, tho.
