The rollbar doesn’t work, there is a module located behind the passengers seat called a Top Contol Module, this controls the Top, the windows and the rollbar. I suspected this was the culprit, besides, since I have a car to switch parts with it is the easiest to check.
This is not original:
At least 20 kg:
Here it is, one expensive module:
Once again, my car was plundered and of course it works:
Get the “thing” back:
Need to finish off some smaller parts to get less stuff to keep track of.
Removed the centre console completely:
New cup holder/storage compartment piece in place:
Put everything back together, including the stereo…:
Noticed something, a hole… Not much to do, stole the one from my car:
New headlight wiper motor in place:
Headlight going back:
Not much space anywhere since more wiring and ballast for the xenon:
Of course everything worked like a charm, except the washer on the drivers side, it wash just dumping water somewhere under the headlight, not much to do except to remove that aswell:
Everything working as it should:
Added Facebook comments for those who want to write something the easy way instead of the form.
What the hell is this?
Whatever it is, it has to go, there are 5 things besides the wires and the vacuum hose that keep the armrest in place, the button (one lock on each side and two springs) for the lock and 4 screws:
Then the front centre console, remove the frame around the shifter:
2 screws keep the “ashtray/lighter” in place, in fact in my car this was just a storage compartment, but still 2 screws:
I hate aftermarket stereos, I also hate the people installing them, this is why:
The windscreen washing doesn’t work, neither the washing for the headlights, basically the only thing that works is the wiper on the windscreen and the left headlight.
The wiper is off, xenon lights on this one (I want too, but I have removed the washer/wiper, so would not pass inspection):
Wiper motor is out and completely dead:
Of course I had to look inside, a lot of old grease:
Anyway, ended up buying a used motor from England, also, both washer pump where broken, new ordered…
Got all the rubber plugs out, used compressed air to get dust and other crap out:
I use linseed oil for rust protection for many reasons, main one is that it works very well, non hazardous, environmental friendly, smells nice, you can drink it or fry you dinner in it.
Oiled and nice:
Also washed all rubber plugs Before putting them back:
Not in the best of shape:
Just get to it, new wires soldered to pins in the connector:
You know the drill:
Waterfree grease as usual, connector in place:
Get everything through the enginebay to the underside:
Alternator, oil level plugged in:
Harness running underneath the airfilter box:
