  1. On my '99 GTP, it would start, then die after running a few seconds. I could repeat the process as much as I wanted, but it continued to do the same thing. Suspecting the relay, under the hood, I removed the relay closest to the fender, which I believe is part of controlling the 2 speed pump. I bent the #85 tab back and plugged back in. The car started fine and I drove home. I understand the resistor can be problematic, so does the resistor cause the relay to fail or would the resistor fail on its own?
  2. I'm in need of a window switch for the driver door for an '02 Impala and I'm not sure which one it is on RockAuto. I have the VIN available if someone is able and willing to look it up for me. It looks like the part number choices are: #10283834 or #88875798 for the ACDelco parts. Can someone help me out on this?
  3. Sorry, I know this is an old quote, but can you explain how your friend accomplished this?
  4. Just a note to add. Removing the fuse panel just in front of the blower motor makes a world of difference on this job. There are two screws that can be removed with a 7/32" socket. The screws for the blower motor, itself are (3) 7mm. I located them by way of using a mirror after feeling around a while for them. I hope this helps someone in the future.
  5. The guy that said it was 10 minutes was on dope. Now that I've done it once, though, I could probably knock it out again in a half hour-45 minutes. Not a bad job, really. It's nice to have a heater blower when it's 22 degrees outside.
  6. I've read this is about a 10 minute job. Does anyone have experience doing this on this car? Mine quit today with a high of 9 degrees and the errands I ran after work were a joy. Thankfully, I'm not Amish, though. I think they have it worse than I did.
  7. http://www.w-body.com/forum/index.php?topic=82442.0 it's a '93 GP. I posted it up in the classifieds. We're about 9 miles northeast of Marion, Ohio. After looking at it better, I'm not convinced it is officially a "parts car". A formed plate, some welding after some cutting and I think it's officially a daily driver again. If today was June, then I'd fix it myself, but unfortunately winter is creeping up and I won't have the time to do it.
  8. I'm thinking to put a W-Body on Ebay, but I know the group here would appreciate the car more. Has anyone had better luck in the classifieds vs. on Ebay? I'm hesitant to post much more information because I don't want to voilate the rules and I don't think I can post a "gauging interest" thread in the classifieds.
  9. Are you talking polishing with a buffing wheel or by hand like I usually polish my aluminum wheels?
  10. They're painted, not clear coated. I don't mind polishing, really. I wash the wheels on my wife's Suburban every night in the winter to keep them from getting dull. I can usually go 6-7 years without polishing them by doing this. Have you done this, yourself?
  11. Has anyone here done this and if so, what was your experience with it? Specifically, I'm talking about the 5 spoke aluminum wheels that would come on a '95 GTP painted silver in color. I have given thought to stripping and polishing them, but I'm not sure what is under the paint and don't want to ruin a good set of wheels if they'll be impossible to polish.
  12. Thanks to those that offered advice. I got the pressure line from NAPA and rocked the motor forward to get to it. The hardest part was reinstalling the plastic clip that looks like the outline of a tiny hand. Those of you that have done this know what I mean. We ended up taking a stubby wrench on the line end on the rack and took a 2' long 2x4 and bumped it loose because we could not get any leverage otherwise. Once that was done, it was pretty straight forward. We were able to accomplish this by removing the air box completely. I didn't have to do anything with the alternator or PS pump, except remove the belt and remove the line going into the pump. I haven't looked at the return line all that closely, but I'll do so next time I change oil to see if the line feels brittle. I don't want to be stranded on a cold day as you mentioned. If I have to drive my truck in the winter salt on the roads, I'll be ticked off. This car is my sacrificial anode and it's been a really good car over the years.
  13. Probably the pressure line? Not a hard fix. I just did this on my '93. I got the line from NAPA for under $30 and rocked the motor forward to get to it.
