Re: 96 yellow wagon t5r, ask price?

Indeed, the build date is 1995-07 so a 1996. Well. 1995 is what it is registered as
I have noticed them sell between 8-15k
But a wagon hasn’t sold in a while.
Guess not $30k, but it seems they should be worth more than $8

Re: 1986 745t 5spd Wires dangling under body beside gear shi

Humm, Thought the reverse lights worked. But then again! I had thought the reverse lights were activated by the gear selector in the car, not externally on the transmission. The two open banana type plugs have lost all the insulation and are exposed. Where should these go to or come from. I would su...

1986 745t 5spd Wires dangling under body beside gear shifter

Hello There is a group of wires (4 in total) The green goes to the overdrive, and is connected to the solenoid. The blue turns into a red after a rubber connector. Two with rubber ends sit halfway down the gearbox and are missing their insulation. Could someone identify these please. Kind Regards Th...

I am in Canada.
Hoping someone will chime in about a air adjustable and maybe a coil over.

Thanks! I see my parts people cant find anything but the Monroe 5978 as 5979 is out of production. Part Number: 124816 from Auotzone crosses but again out of production. Ultimately I desire an adjustable by a dial, on the side of the shock. So when I have a trailer, I can increase damping force. kin...

Re: 1995 965 Rear suspension Non Nivomat renew

Hello
I am not able to buy rear shock absorbers for my 95 965.
I can get 94 965.
Can anyone steer me correctly?
I suspect I am goin to have to pay duty and brokerage (arrgh!) to get FCP or IPD.

1996 855t PCV Re-Route

Hello
Has anyone ever re routed their pcv, for A 1996 855t?
Maybe I missed something! Or can't find the correct info!
Does the system recognize lack of vacuum or something?
Catch Canister!

1995 965 Rear suspension Non Nivomat renew

Monroe shock absorber, does anyone know if I can use the sedan #5978 instead of #5979 for the wagon. Will it just be a bit softer, but the same height? I would not mind putting the AC Delco, part # 504573. But no one is selling them I can find? I do tow a trailer sometimes but also like it to be fai...

Re: 2000 v70xc Coil pack testing probe 1,2,3,4. ohm?

Thanks The car idles fine, and each cyl has it's own random misfire. Hoping there is some way to test coils, resistance between 1&4, 2&3 or whatever. I understand they can ground out, but if spark discharge is the same voltage i.e not rpm dependant. I will go though crank and cam codes again tonight...

Re: 2000 v70xc Coil pack testing probe 1,2,3,4. ohm?

Or, is there a way to determine if a coil pack is within a useable range.

Is there a schematic/blueprint/diagram with values available.

Re: 2000 v70xc Antenna ring ecu swap

I try my best to be a technical literate. I am hoping for an understanding of what is in-line to make these cars tick. If it is a Key 1, Antenna ring 2, Immobilizer 3, ECU 4, etc Or, if one were to have a dead back-up car. Could one remove part 1,2,3 but still need part 4 to be reflashed and also pa...

What is/are the things inline to be mated.
I presume that the immobilizer and antenna ring have properties with the ignition key signal. These are tied to the ecu.???
What are the other things(?) in the chain.
