  1. WINDOW MOTOR REPLACEMENT '99 RIVIERA Couldn't find much guidence on line about this task, so I'll share my experience. Had recuring problem with window not lowering from full up position. This seemed to happen in warmer weather, and would pretty much disappear in cooler months. This led me to suspect the motor's internal circuit breaker which is a temperature/current sensitive device. After confirming that 12Vdc was being delivered to the motor in both up and down commands, I changed the motor (Rockauto PN DOR742104, comes with wiring adapters) and the problem was resolved. The following are s
  2. Questions? contact me at estaver1@bellsouth.net PN = 16507163 LH & 16507164 RH $50 ea. These units were removed from my '89 Reatta in August of '98. At that time I had tried to order just the "crank arm" from the local dealer but was told that only the entire motor/gearbox/crank arm was available. I fell for their baloney. Thus... I had two new complete assemblies that I then installed and two old ones to rebuild and use for spares. These old units had two problems: Bad "clutch" rollers and wallowed out "crank arms". At that time the spare units were opened up and the "clutch" rollers were

  4. As an industrial electrician, I've seen many plastic components go south just like what you see in the picture. The cause... spray type contact cleaner. Just a couple of seconds after being applied, ruin. There's no repair short of replacement. It's good for use directly on electrical contacts, but most plastic relay bodies or panels... she no like.
  5. Rattle drove me crazy for a couple of years. After routine replacement of my struts... no more rattle, no matter the road condition.
  6. Dan My Man.... you see, lots of great, friendly help here at the forum. I don't know what I would have done without them when I had my '89. My '99 Riv is now my daily driver and that supercharger really moves her down the road when needed. Still miss not seeing those Reatta style lines reflected in shop windows as I drive by.
  7. Saw your brake question via my home e-mail, but I'm having trouble using the forum to view it. I'm at estaver1@bellsouth.net . That address will let me talk to you directly if needed. As to your question... I no longer have a Reatta shop manual. Sorry, but I don't recall the connector pin layout. Many folks here at the forum have lots of info. and experience on brake issues. Suggest you post here with that question about "Pressure switch pin circuit" Drew
  8. Helm Final Edition...Purchased in '96 and used regulary for the 14 years that my coupe lived here. Took her to her new home today with 198K candles on her cake. So I won't be needing my shop manual anymore. All pages intact, but after 14 years of doing nearly all my own maintenance, many have highlighted passages and notes to myself. The covers are shopworn but all original info. is safely between them, with no loose pages. I don't believe there are any dirty finger prints or smudges to disappoint you in the interior. Will supply detailed photos if desired. If you buy, feel free to call when y
  9. I would suggest pulling the O2 sensor also because it makes getting to the back rear plug a lot easier... but the back side is still a hand mangler. I agree with gapping at .045, it made a world of differance in performance for my '89 w/198K miles. Factory calls for .060.
