  1. Are there any tips to removing the electrical connectors to the hydraulic assembly? Due to age, the connectors are not very pliable and seem somewhat hardened. I'm concerned about breakage. A lot of the connectors are further secured by a metal clip (each different) and its not obvious how to release it so that it can be unplugged w/o damage. Some connections are barely visible -- Do those get unplugged "after" the assembly is unbolted from mounting nuts so you have access? Per the shop manual, it identified the main valve connector and pump/motor connector as ones with spring
  2. Hemi, Thanks for your reply. I did look at the photos you had. I hadn't anticipated removing the steering column. I assumed that was needed to replace the brake pedal swing-arm to convert to non-ABS; but, I wouldnt be replacing the brake pedal swing-arm if putting-in another hydraulic assembly. So I guess I'm asking if removing the steering column is needed for this swap?
  3. My TC is the 4 cyl Turbo II Automatic (I forgot to mention that). I have a complete re-manufactured hydraulic assembly I bought about 2 years ago knowing mine was starting to have issues. Ideally, I wanted to find a local mechanic in the northern VA area to swap it out; but no one here wants to work on cars this old and this uncommon of a model (I've even asked mechanics who do odd-jobs on weekends at their house). Usually I get around that issue by doing the stuff myself -- but the hydraulic assembly is something I'd rather not do myself. Knowing what needs to be removed on the topside w
  4. Mine is titled as "1989 EURO". I was told that others were titled that way from other members in TCA. Not sure exactly why though or why the inconsistency.
  5. As one of many having Teves ABS problems, Is there an easy way to gain access to the brake line connections under the hydraulic assembly? The service manual glosses over this step. I was curious if a panel could be easily removed in the wheel well or something? Thanks.
  6. The front bumper rattles (and vibrates) when car is idling. This is a problem I had twice on my TC: - About 10 years ago, this happened and the mechanic replaced the two front absorber assemblies/mounts w/OEM parts. Problem was resolved then. - Now, years later, the problem is back (right side of front bumper rattles and appears slightly loose again). It appears the bumper is loose at the exterior connection to the right absorber by observing through the gap above the headlight (while hood is open). Is there a reason this would loosen or is this a systemic pro
