Convert power sport seats to manual

Has anyone converted their powered sport seats to manual operation? Is there a way to do this and does anyone here have tips/parts required to do it? I don't want to fiddle with getting my sport seats to work right now (keep blowing a fuse) and just want them functional. Thanks for any help you can ...

FS: 1985 635CSI - Dia Black w/Ox Blood Interior

I'm looking at putting up my restored 1985 Diamond Schwarz Metallic with Ox Blood Red (Taurus Rot) interior. The Taurus Rot interior is one of the rarer interiors, and really compliments the black well. The car was manufactured in November 1984, so a very early '85. What is rare about this car, is t...

Oil leaking from crankshaft pulley

So I noticed today there was a small drip at the bottom of the pulley, and when I started the car, it sprayed all over the pavement (minor spray). Does anyone have a step by step on how to change this seal out? Is it easy? Parts needed?

Thanks
Jack

Re: Polishing Hella glass fog lights

Looks great Dean! What was the actual product that you used?

As for the question of wet sanding, I didn't try and the sandpaper I used was just the Gator brand I found at Lowes. Through each grit, I went through about 3-4 pads per.

Re: Sunroof skin/panel

If you have removed your headliner, you may want to also check the corners where the drain tubes exit the bottom pan of the sunroof. Mine were completely rusted out and small leaks started to show up on my headliner. Not until did I remove my headliner, did I see how bad it really was! I wound up or...

Re: Chrome Window Trim Installation

So...Is there an easy way to remove the rubber and glass without harming it or should I call Safelite or something like that to deal with it? It is all new rubber.

Chrome Window Trim Installation

So I think I made a little mistake... After getting both front and rear windshields in the car, I think I should have installed the chrome trim with them. Is there a trick to installing these once the rubber and glass is installed? I don't want to risk taking the glass and rubber back out if I don't...

Re: Polishing Hella glass fog lights

What kind of sander were you using? Obviously you can't hand sand the lights with sufficient vigor to get them hot. I wonder if it's the heat from sanding that cracks them, or the sanding itself? Those lights get finger-blistering hot in use. I cannot see how sanding them could generate more heat t...

Re: Polishing Hella glass fog lights

That looks pretty good. 40 is pretty coarse, do you think you could start with something less aggressive and still achieve the same result? I've got set thats pretty pitted as well and have been thinking about this. Nice work It is, but I actually tried starting at 80 on a spare that was just as ba...

Re: Polishing Hella glass fog lights

You can see, some of the pitting is still there, but these were pretty bad! I am very happy with the way the turned out. I was ready to throw them out, but I am glad that I tried this method since I really didn't have nothing to loose. The whole process took about 3.5 hours. IMG_2398.jpg Hope this h...

Polishing Hella glass fog lights

So, I figured I would try to sand out the pitting on my fogs instead of dropping over $120 on a new set. Finding ones that are the larger and longer in size has been quite an issue, and even with the part number I thought was correct, I ordered the shorter ones by mistake. Here is a step by step pro...

Sport Seat thigh bolster wiring

I purchased my pair of sport seats and everything works but the thigh bolsters. As I started to look at things, I realized that the wiring that is there is coming from the switch, but there is no wiring coming to give power to the motor. As you look at the connector, there is room for two male plugs...

Thanks Dean but I have that full factory manual and tried using it. It leaves out some detail that maybe someone who has done it before can share.

Thanks again as alway!
