    Re: Got screwed over on E Bay so HELP !!!

    OK, we've verified the window switches work, which is great news. That means your issue is either:

    - a weak motor (easy cheap fix)
    - worn window regulator tape (cheap fix)
    - regulator needs lubricating (easy cheap fix)
    - regulator needs replacing (most expensive of the bunch but beats needing a new window switch)

    o wait i must have misunderstood you.

    you dont have to replace the bulb of course, but if i remember correctly you do have to replace the lens ASSEMBLY.

    screws. the door panel is a 2 piece panel, you really only need to remove the bottom panel

    -first you take the armrest - off two phillips screws

    -once you remove the armrest theres a black plate with 4 screws. 2 big ones attach to the actual door sheetmetal, you can take off just the 2 big screws

    - there are 3 or 4 more screws along the bottom of the door panel that need to be removed

    - there should be 2 inside the door handle, big silverish screws.

    - once you have all the screws out, look in from the bottom and see if you can reach your hand in there and disconnect the lock and door handles from the linkages

    - you can optionally remove the window switch box, or the black plate. this may make it easier to disconnect the lock and door handle from the linkages.

    - the door panel might just fall now, if not pull down, back and out all at once, gently but firmly, no jerking in other words

    as for your radio, chances are your bose amps have failed. theres one at each speaker in a pod (4 amps total). they often fail, but are not that hard to fix if you know what to do (or if you want to play russian roulette at the junkyard with trying to find working amps)
    if you're good with a soldering gun and technical stuff (or know someone who is), heres a helpful link
    http://forums.corvetteforum.com/c4-t...-and-more.html
    I should mention that bose amps were different (slightly) for every car model they were put in. any of them will work, but you will need to replace them in pairs (if you go to the j/y) replace both front amps with a lf and rf amp from a car, and the lr and rr amps with an lr and a rr amp. they wont sound the same as the originals, but they will work for a while (how long is anyone guess- I had a set in my fwb for a year. the 2 rears worked great, but the 2 fronts died pretty quick.)
    as for possible amp donors
    eldorados and sevilles from 1988 or so until the mid 90's body change. you want the gold series amps (50 watt max per amp)
    devilles from '86 to 93? (the boxy ones) again- you want gold series amps.
    corvettes had them- convertibles had higher output amps.
    I've also heard of luminas and some other GM cars having bose amps, but they werent that common in those cars

    DO NOT buy amps from cars that are missing the factory radio or have an aftermarket radio. chances are the amps are fried.

    yes. theres a big black bracket on the door skin. at the place that the handle would normally be youll see two holes and behind it a "floating" metal piece also with two holes, these are threaded holes. this piece is SO FRACKING ANNOYING. youll move it into place, get the door panel on, then try to put the door handle in, only to have the piece move out of place!

    so, you have a couple of options

    1) move the floating metal piece into place, take a small hammer and tap or bang the metal bracket until the "dent" hold the metal piece in place. you dont need to destroy the metal bracket or hammer/dent it heavily, only enough to lightly pinch the metal piece into place

    2) take a thick putty or even a good tape and tape that piece into place, making sure to leave the holes available for the screws to thread into.


    i always had to put the panel on partially, put the handle in partially, snap the linkage onto it, THEN screw it in

    Now I know someone can tell me where the pull down motor or switch is for the trunk. I close the trunk and hear nothing.
