[DML] Re: Window & Blower Question

The window came off the track. You can put it back but it will happen
again. Rob Grady has a big rivet you can get and he will explain his
repair procedure to prevent it from coming off the track again. The
fan stopped because you need to change the circuit breakers. There are
2, one for the ventilating fan and 1 for the cooling (radiator) fans.
Get both. In fact just get the relay upgrade kit, it includes these
breakers. I would also replace the throttle cable with the correct
cable and lubricate it as per the recall (yes, even in Florida).While
you are on the phone to your favorite Delorean vendor make sure you
have all of the recalls and get an extra oil filter. Sometimes it will
seem like you will never get ahead of the problems with a car. Keep
fixing them as they come up and eventually they will stop popping up.
I like to be proactive, go after all of the known problem areas and do
them BEFORE they cause you trouble. Jack up the car and do a THOURGH
inspection of everything underneath. Repair or replace anything that
looks suspicious like boots, seals, hoses, etc. Now look in all the
hidden areas like the battery, fuse/relay area, under the dash. Look
for electrical tape, non-origional wiring, etc. If it has been a long
time (maybe never?) replace all the cooling hoses and tune the car up.
Grease the front end, don't forget the angle drive and check the ALL
the fluid levels. Check the air in the tires, replace the wiper blades
and replace the washer fluid with fresh stuff. If you only fix what
breaks you are asking for the next thing to break and then you will
only be disappointed when the car lets you down again and again. If
the brake and clutch fluid is over 2 years old (or you don't know and
it looks dark) flush it out and replace it with fresh DOT 4 Castrol
GTLMA. When I first got my car everything worked but it had very low
miles on it, the P.O. hardly ever used it. Once I started using it, it
seemed every time I took the car out for a ride something else went
wrong with it. On several occasions I got stuck with it and it got to
the point no one would ride with me. It is MUCH better now!

sitting at a show on Friday night I pressed the accelerator pedal and
the throttle cable broke right as it comes out of the tube above the
pedal. I wanted to attend another show on Sunday and knew I was not
going to be able to get a new cable by then so I figured I would go
the bike brake cable route to get a temporary fix working. For the
record, bike shops don't usually have cables that long. But fishing
shops have stainless leader that is almost identical, so I had the
throttle working again and head off to the Sunday show.
