440 1992 Various questions

Post by Skinkehunden »


I've got a couple of questions which really isn't problems.

I own a '92 440DL 1.8 (B18U engine) with has no electrical luxuries like power-steering, central-locking, electrical windows or tacho. Now I can live without these luxuries, but it would be nice to have the tacho (in stead of a clock), central-locking and electrical windows (listed in prioritiesed order).

With regards to the tacho, I can been looking into the wiring diagrams in my Haynes manual, and it seems that there shouldn't be to many problems converting my current instrument cluster with a tacho from a scrapped car. Or is there???

Has anyone implemented the central-locking and/or electrical windows with success?
Current: Volvo S60 T5 2005 150.000 km on the clock.
- Volvo Volvo S60 2.4 2006 with 204.201 km on the clock.
- Volvo 440 Pacific 1.8 1995 with 258.197 km on the clock.
- Volvo 440DL 1.8 1992 with 268.500 km on the clock.
- Ford Escort 1.3 1977 with 64.000 km on the clock.

I don't know about fitting it, but everything you need is on ebay at the moment, switches, window racks and motors, and even left and right 'leccy mirrors.

Looks expensive to do though, IMO, the cost and work involved would be better avoided by buying a new car entirly, there's one the same as yours on ebay now!
