Re: The past week in Car repair

As for the top, I know you have had a long, long standing offer on that, but I would never assume or impose in such a way. If I can get to that bridge, we can talk about crossing it if you still feel like it, lol. It's only been about 10 years or so, and I ain't getting any younger... But It may ta...

Re: Loose Steering column

Re: Loose Steering column

That is usually a sign that the lower steering bearing has moved out of position. At the bottom of the outer shaft if you see a white or yellowed thing that is sticking out, then push it back up in place and hold in position with wire ties and or a hose clamp, and consider it a permanent fix. You ca...

Re: Wiring question

From the connector and the location those I suspect are the wires out of the back of the Heater control panel RH side. But I thought those were brown and blue/gray. I don't remember a connector with Brown and black wires in it behind the dash in that location other than I said for the illumination o...

Re: Well the Rabbit dies again....

All parts are being donated to my 92. The rolling shell should be at pull-a-part next week.
After about 2.5 hours work I have the interior out, and the top is free save for the 2 headliner straps.

Look at www.cabby-info.com
Yes the air-bagged model was for 3 years, but the 89 model year glass will fit with the clips taken out and a new seal.
