Re: Matt Black Rear Number Plate Panel

No, they can be put back if you don't get too aggressive bending the tabs (snappingdales!)

see this thread on rebuilding the rear clusters

Re: Matt Black Rear Number Plate Panel

Chrome pieces on the rear lights are easily removed by bending back a few tabs.

Harmonic Balancer (Crank Pulley) re and re

Replaced that HB this past week, mine was screeching, clanging and going "ding ding ding" - far more disconcerting than a puff of smoke on startup. Loud enough to scare passers-by! I did quite a lot of research/prep before getting stuck in and have to say it paid off. The two major issues ...

Where is that valve located on a 94? Can't say I remember dealing with one, but I only dealt with trinary switch, ports, condenser, dryer and o-rings when I fixed mine.

...and assuming it actually has dye in the system. Mine did not :roll: Hopefully you put some in when you fixed it? I bought an small aerosol can that had 5 shots of dye with a fitting for the low side port (apply for 2 secs to get a shot) - this is how I was able to see my ports were leaking ...fi...

Re: Aircon clutch fuse blown

A good way to check for a leak is to pick up a UV LED flashlight - (there are some really good ones on eBay for not too much money) Try to take the car into as close to total darkness as you can and start shining the light into the engine compartment. Shine it along the a/c hoses, ports, unions, com...

Re: No time waster please?

My car was bought on a used car lot - I didn't even know what an XJ40 was at the time! :oops: I'd test driven a few "XJ6's" but the first (I think it was a red 1990) had a diff whine that I found a bit annoying but otherwise seemed ok .. was tempted, but passed (guess I wasted the sellers ...

Re: IN DESPERATE NEED OF

Looks like I have one Vince, if you can't get one locally I can send it over :) The one I have is fine BUT the head of one of the mounting screws for the stepper snapped when I took it off the parts car so you'd need to extract the remainder from the body. On the bright side, it came from my 94 part...
