  7. This evening I tried to open the trunk door for the first time. The lock was unlocked, but nothing happened when I pulled on it. From inSide the trunk I was able to open the door by pushing against it. I had notice that while driving, this door would rattle slightly. I didnt see anything behind the locking handle of the door that would grab and lock the door. Anyone know what I am talking about? How cn i get this to open from inside the car with the lock unlock? Thanks

  10. Does anyone know where I can get an owners manual for a 1988 Reatta? thanks
  11. How many of our members are in the Southeast area that would be interested in a Rally? I am located in WEst Palm Beach. Any others in this area? Thanks
  12. OK I ordered the amplifier output module . How difficult is it to replace it. I understand it is under the console, by the switches. Since I have never taken the console apart, are there any tricks to this. Thanks for your help
  13. " Go to reatta.net and read how to adjust the switch in the on line FSM!" What is FSM? I went to the reatta.net URL and couldnt find anything for crusie control. Thanks
  14. I recently purchaseda 1988 Reatta. When I was taking the test drive the seller, I noticed that the cruise control didnt work and on the Screen came up a message that it was disconnected. The seller told me he would take care of that for me. He later said that they narrowed it down to somesort of a switch near the brake pedal but he is having trouble getting it. Has anyone else had this problem, and what did you do to solve it Thanks much
  15. Where is the amplifier output module, and how do I get to it....thanks
  16. Well my production number is 2970 for the 1988 and I have the black and silver....any others??
  17. I have seen the 88 have either one...
  18. Why is it that some Reattas have a regular medalion center sterring wheel hub, and others, like mine have a black and silver logo? Any one know? thanks
  19. Hello Yesterday, after having Chrome wheels installed on my Reatta, I noticed that my brake cable was hanging down from under the car. I asked the attendant to look at it for me, thinking they may have done this. Looking under the car, it seems the previous owner attached it to the bottom of the car with an erector set type of metal. The Red Brake light came on. I placed it back under the metal, and the light went off. This morning it is on again. Is this a common problem with the REatta? Have others had brake cable problems? What can I do to fix this problem. Thanks for your continous help
  20. hey guys Thanks for all the information. I need to sit down and reread all of this. I am not too electronical but I think that I can do what you said. Adn Reattitude Randy, I am very interested in membership. Can you email me more info? As I explore the Reatta I have more and more questions. I pulled the driver seat forward to get to the back but it did not move. I redid it and it moved....but tried again and it didn't Is there a trick to this? Am I missing something? I guess I should try to get somehow an owners manual. Your info is most appreciated George grkman1@aol.com
  21. Hello I am excited that this past weekend. I picked up a NEW for me Reatta. I drove 160 miles to bring it home. It drove beautifully. It is Claret, with grey leather, 16 way seats. AFter about 30 miles, a note on the computer said that it was shutting down the compressor because of lack of freon in the system, even though the air felt fine. I also noticeds that after about 50 miles, the lower half of the screen started to flutter. It eventually went awy, but has come back since. The speaks are horrible, and Id like to get them replaced. Anyone know the sizes of the door speakers and the back speakers so I can get them changed? I am hoping that the problem are the speakers, the easier way out here, and not the radio. I get crackline, and poping sounds out of some of them. Maybe some of you have experienced this. How hard is it to change the CRT Do the plastic panels around them just pop out, to get access to the screws that hold it in? I appreciate any and all information Thanks
  22. If you can post or send me pictures of how it looks on your car, i would appreciated....now I just have to find some Riv parts....thanks grkman1@aol.com
  23. While looking at some pictures of the Ratta, I came across some interior shots of the dashboard having a woodgrain/Burlwood dash board. Was this an option, or can this be ordered for any reatta. Thanks
  24. Ill Try Vince....thanks for the support
  25. I cant beleive how many hits this site has had since I placedthis question...Thanks to all that have replied. Its comforting that there are other enthusiast out there like myself. If I relly like the car, and it seems that I will, I wont mind putting money into it. I had purchased on old Tbird 1970 429 engine and only 34K miles. I didnt come across any forums like this one. I sold that a few years ago, and 6 months ago I bouth a 1988 Eldorado Biaritz in perfect shape....but no one to chat about it to...not that there were too many people interested in it. It seems that will change with the Reatta. Again thanks for your help and you will be haring from me oonce I get the car this weekend
