  1. Just wanted to give a big Thank You to David Lemke. David sold me controller for my 88 that operates the blend box (cold to warm air). I can now from the touch screen have either A/C or Heat. In Texas this time of year you switch back and forth a lot. Again Thank you David. You saved me. And thanks to this forum and it's supporters.
  2. I am still looking for a controller for the climate control blend box. I affixed the arm to cold for the summer but now would like to change to heat. I have an 88 model. I have actually parked the car in the garage and am driving my other car here in Texas. I take the 88 out every couple of weeks to run the engine and gives me time to clean the garage from my other projects.
  3. today had to remove the rear wheels and tighten the parking brake arms to stop that annoying rattle.
  4. Looks Great. I'm impressed the radiator overflow looks clean on the inside.
  5. Thanks, Had the dash off before. The defroster grill was tricky. I remounted it in a way that it would remove easily as I figured I would someday need to get back in there. Thankfully my dash is in good shape as the car has been garaged since it was new. Just rolled 85,000 miles. Even now I try to park in the shade when I take it out. Every time I get into reading this forum I come up with new projects to fine tune some part of my car. I was thinking of rear struts then I read about replacing the rear brake with those from a caddy. Sounds like a great idea and may do the whole rear end
  6. Thanks, Dashboard or Instrument Dash console? Is upper dashboard the upper dash board? Lost in translation. Thanks again.
  7. I think that would be the external sensor. The on board diagnostics, thanks Ronnie for the link, shows the internal sensor failed. My guess in looking for the part and reading about it I expect it to be near the return air intake under the dash. Thanks
  8. Mostly cleaning between rain events. Did time to run diagnostics on my 1988. Started chasing down Climate Sensor problem. It appears to be the internal sensor. Showing -39. If someone could save me some time and tell me where its located it would be appreciated.
  9. Replaced the water pump. Not a hard job. The pumps bearings failed. The impeller was rubbing inside and caused some damage to the cover plate. Flushed and refilled and am now ready for summer.
  10. I HAVE THE SAME PROBLEM WITH MY 88. I have tightened the parking brake arm off a few time but it always works itself loose. Would appreciate a little more info on how you corrected the problem. I will soon be replacing the rear shocks and would want to fix this brake rattle while I have the car up.
  11. Good info on the taillight cleaner. Do they recommend a sealant to protect the plastic. I have tried several products on my other cars headlights but the fogging always come back even with the sealant. Been afraid to try anything on the Reatta. It's my baby.
  12. Had the headliner replaced. I find myself rubbing the edge with my shoulder as I enter and exit the car. It finally broke down the shell and the material started coming lose. Now looking at replacing the shocks. Any heads ups as to what to expect appreciated.
  13. Head over to Harbor Freight and buy a riveter. Less than $20.00. Get the one that handles the larger rivets which it comes with. This is a great toll and has many uses around the home and garage. Replace one at a time as you remove the bolts as lining up the motor to the holes are a challenge.
