Got my wiper stalk this friday.

Image

Stock stalk in place and the speedo cover on.

Image

Hardest part done, getting that da*n cover off, i can't figure out what they were thinking when construction this. On cars with tachometer it is almost impossible to get that thing off. :evil:

Image

Lower cover just loosened att pushed down a bit, stock stalk is gone.

Image

New stalk in place, tested, everything works fine. :D

Image

And a final image with the speedo cover in place.

Image

I have adjustable intermittent wipers! :mrgreen:

Good job done :D

I also always struggle getting the covers off around the tachometer.

I've ordered one of the VW #72 relays to see if I can get the intermittent rear wiper working properly. I think the problem I have with the current relay is that it doesn't allow enough time for the wiper to start moving so it clicks twice every time.

Thanks!

I will follow your progress with the intermittent rear wiper with great interest.

Yesterday morning i noticed that my low beam was very bad, turned out one of the bulbs was out. Bought new ones on the way home from work. Since i have some gold accents on my car i chose gold H4 bulbs with yellow lights.

Today i went out to the car to replace the old bulbs to the new ones…

:shock: OH MY GOD!!! How could someone design something like this, it took me an hour to change two H4 bulbs, something that took 4 minutes on my 1988 Honda Civic. It was easier to replace the wiper stalk than changing two lightbulbs!!

Pics with yellow lights will come, but i really need to wash her first and today it is raining.

You do need long thin double-jointed fingers and a high pain threshold :ugeek:

An hour! I can change them in about 1min! :P

Wiggle off the power connector
Pull off rubber boot
Pull the top of the wire clip to the side and lower it down
Pull out bulb
Put new bulb in at same angle as one removed
Fold wire clip up and clip into place
Push rubber boot over new bulb and onto headlight housing.
Wiggle power block back on.

In fact it's taken me longer to write this than change a bulb! :lol:

Now the Mazda 6 I have to either take the under tray off and reach blindly up or remove the wheel liner. It's a complete joke. :x

That's how i did it, i did loosen the ground wire on the drivers side to be able to fit my hand, but it is so tight, perhaps i will be able to do it much faster next time now when i know how the wire clamps work.

On the passenger side the wire clamp was pushed in way to far, wiggling the bulb i was able to make it pop back out so i could reach it. I have seen worse, on the first MB A Class you had to remove the front wheel to be able to access a hatch in the inner fender and trough it you could change the bulb.

But still, on my Honda Civic made in -88 it was done in minutes, without swearing and without rubbing the skin of your hands.

The first ones l changed were no problem. But the last time was a nightmare got one side done ok. But had to remove the battery on the other side, just couldn't the dam clip to go on in place. Working upside down didn't help either.
A guy on Facebook was having problems with the clip, l posted a photo for him to see how how it is removed.
Suddenly it came to me that if you lay across the motor then that clip is not upside down.

Do not do this with the engine running (joke)

No major changes for a long time now, it is winter and without a garage it is hard to get in the mood for some tinkering. But my key was annoying, i had a hole in the lock button and most of the times nothing happened when pushing it. So i found a repair kit on the internet and after some work i had a working and new looking key.

Image

There was a cavity for the Lion but not a new one supplied so i managed to attach the one from the old key.

Gave the little bugger some very well needed TLC today.

I'm not a huge fan of debadging but not too keen to cruise in a PEU-GEO either so it had to go.

In the end of this month it is time to get the summer tires on, i can't wait.
