  1. 89 White/tan Original owner with 60k miles. Located Freehold Twnship.
  2. With ignition off - fluid is at the top of the FULL arrow. After ignition turned on and yellow and Red lights go off - fluid is at bottom of OVERFILL. When ignition turned off fluid will then - not immediately return to Full arrow.
  3. http://reatta.ulloa-small.com/ If you can access pictures will be found - let me have your comments. [color:\\"red\\"] Note: there are 6 pictures that will open up. Takes about 7 minutes - sorry - don't know another way to do.
  4. Do you mean THE FULL LINE ??? That it not the case with mine. Mine is at the bottom level of the decal at the side.
  5. Had front brakes done at Buick - reasonable. Quiestion - where should brake fluid level be at reservoir. Note rear brakes have under 10K miles on them. No squealing, chatter, etc.
  6. I have a white 89 w/ 50k miles - dealer maintained since bought new - original owner. Located Freehold area
  7. Suggest you call Freehold, Pontiac, Buick, GMC, Freehold, NJ (formerly Whelan) (732) 462-7093 and ask to speak with Bill Matre, Service Manager. Tell him that Steven Small with White 89 Reatta referred you.<P> I am the original owner and for the past 11 years these are the only people I have allowed to work on my 89 Reatta.<P>Have been extremely happy with there service - prices are not outrageous.

  11. Well I've decided to go the complete replacement antenna route. (Original lasted 11 years and would expect new one to do same. For your information, no matter how hard I tried was unable (even after reading all posts) to remove the male/female coax connection. It appears that it is somehow locked in place. Tried pushing up, twisting and then pulling but will not come apart I will therefore remove caox connection at antenna, as suggested in Tom Walsh post. It is only held by 2 phillips screws. Being that my antenna is in the up position, I will attempt a complete removal first. If unable I will probably cut the mast. FOR BARNEY EATON: received your e-mail - but plan on replacing mast on old one. Thanks to all.
  12. I note the reply to remove the coax cable was to twist and pull. I have tried but did not exert extreme force. What I did notice was when I pushed the male into the female, it appeared that there was a spring inside. When you say twist and then pull, is the male connection similar to a light bulb where you have to push the bulb into the socket, then twist and pull to lock it in place. The reason I ask is on a previous post, the following appeared with respect to a reference to: "the adapters fit into the female plug of the antenna but the spring pushes it right back out" I'm just a little G shi - don't want to cause more problems then need to.
  13. I have read all the FAQ advise regarding fixing the power antenna an am still unsure which route I should go. My antenna is currently stuck in the extended psoition. It measures 30" long from the fender to the end of the Finial cap. I am able to move the lower portion of the antenna down slightly and also the top part of the mast if I raise the lower portion back up. I note that there is resistance when I push either down. I had to disconnect the power to the antenna as it continued to run when I shut the radio off. Should I consider replacing the complete antenna or just the mast. Prices quoted to me from gmparts direct.com (incl S&H) for antenna P/N 22071328 $82.90. Mast P/N 22038185 $18.84 Lambert Buick partsgm.com quoted $87.30 for the antenna + S&H. How can I be sure which to get. If I go with mast replacement, would I have to remove the Finial Cap, then the black serrated nut and then the chrome nut inorder to slide the antenna thru the fender. Thirdly, must I disconnect the negative battery cable as the service manual says, the reason I ask is because I have already disconnect the power lead. Alternatively, if I oreder the complete antenna, does it also come with the antenna relay which is on top of the electrical connector. If it doesn't, does it merely unplug or what do I have to do. Any inputs would be appreciated. <P>------------------<BR>
  14. I opted for Michelin Pilot XGTH4's from Sears which cost me $65.00 each. On sale for 81 less 10% + had additional 10% coupon. Exceptional tires, quite and smooth with excellnt cornining ability. Initially considered GT+4's but do to low mileage I have and put on each year - was concerened that thye would no longer be available - say in 3 years + from now.<P>------------------<BR>
  15. Just testing mi sign on - have been away for 8 months<P>------------------<BR>
