Re: New owner of a new to me xr4ti

x100 very common problem remedied by a new turn signal switch / hazard button assembly. Who's selling them? Here's a european-spec version I just tested in a car earlier today. (Made a little better than the North Americanspec ones): https://www.ebay.com/itm/193724283138 https://i.ebayimg.com/image...

Pictures help sell cars. If you're not an MCA member there is a Facebook group you could post in.

You're on my list of having "unobtainables" or at least "really hard to find and/or expensive to buy".
Not the only list I'm on....

Re: New owner of a new to me xr4ti

Yes the hazard button not working is common, and also common is when the turn signals don't turn off automatic when you straighten the wheel. x100 very common problem remedied by a new turn signal switch / hazard button assembly. I've been lucky, none of mine have had an issue with the hazard butto...

Ya, it's the climate control. These people can rebuild them, but that cost 80 bucks. https://modulemaster.com/products/ford-lincoln-mercury-electronic-automatic-temperature-control-eatc-climate-control-rebuild I saw on Wheeler Dealers a place in the UK that rebuilt the ABS computers, but this is cl...

Re: New owner of a new to me xr4ti

Is rapido still open? I tried calling but no answer. Yes, but Russ is slowing down a bit. I'm not sure if his son Mike is working there or just helping. Leave a message and or send an e-mail and he'll respond eventually. He did have some pretty major health issues pre-COVID, so I imagine he is stil...

Re: New owner of a new to me xr4ti

I didn't know you had all those miles on your XR. It looked brand new the last time I saw it. I bought it with 240,000 on it. Bob Barrett made all of the upgrades to it when it had 200K on it. Since you've seen it it has had a Merkur sign fall into it and a shopping kart hit it from a lazy bastard ...

A/C O-rings

Replaced the compressor and after putting the manifold back on everything worked fine. A few days later the Scorpio is up on the rack and it is noted the compressor is leaking. IT seems to be leaking around the o-rings in the manifold. Does anyone have a known good source for o-rings for the Scorpio...

Re: New owner of a new to me xr4ti

Sounds smart. XR is a great car for a masochist such as yourself. Buying a used turbo car from the eighties is a good idea, even if site unseen. Don't listen to what anyone else tries to tell you. So put some lotion on and go pick up your new car. Relax, it's getting I ride back on a trailer and pa...

Re: 4x4 Ranger $500

Must have sold. Looking at the front passenger tire, it must have been pretty deep into the ground at one time.

Re: Car Collection for Sale

The Monte Carlo and what looks like a Pontiac Fiero don't fit with the rest of them. Other than the Saabs, I don't recognize any of them.
