Re: All models-steppermotor replacement video

there are few for $200 or $250 from US but I also see from Italy as low as $90 for a complete new unit, including shipping. I should have checked that first and for $60 more, had myself 2 new motors instead of risking on hopefully a good gear.

Re: All models-steppermotor replacement video

Thanks, I'll check and see what they cost if they have any. I just ordered a used one off of a working BMW from ebay in Italy for $31 including shipping. I'll know the state of the gear once I get it ;-)

Re: All models-steppermotor replacement video

I still haven't put everything back but read thru the heater motor replacement which was just the one I needed and it was very simple and a bit too late for me. I also checked the Germany ebay and they still have few of the motors for sale for 20 euros plus shipping. I'm now trying to make sure thes...

Re: All models-steppermotor replacement video

Thanks MikeCZ! I'll read your document and see if I could have removed it as described but I did manage to get a copy of the video and processed the old fashion but very long and sticky (old foam crumbled and stick to my fingers). I did have the shorter document and already purchased my resistors. I...

Re: All models-steppermotor replacement video

Hi, is this video available anywhere else? it's Private and won't open. Also, I did read/saw pictures of someone getting to the stepper motor without removing the dash but rather cutting into the inside of the glovebox. I have the glove box out and when I look at where the stepper motor is, I would ...

Re: Exterior Window sweep

update: I managed to find new and old ones from Giovanni Di Fatta from Florida (I believe) but I also took one off and it appears that while the separation and crack from one end to the other is visible to the eye, it's cosmetic and the V shape strip actually doesn't allow water in. Of course, this ...

Exterior Window sweep

hi, I posted similar Q in the Wanted forum but figured maybe more follow this one. These are the horizontal sweeps against the window to block the rain to go inside the door. Does anyone know a source to find new ones from ALFA stores (I checked 4 already and none have the sweep) or an alternate opt...

all 4 door window weather sweep

I have searched all the parts places and didn't see any. Not sure if someone has managed to find a match from another car that can be retrofitted. Since 164 is different from SAAB 9000/FIAT, theirs won't fit or at least not the rear windows. mine have cracked in the middle and allow water in and dra...
