[DML] Re: My new De Lorean



Hi Jim

Welcome aboard! Please add yourself to the owner map (see info on 
www.dmcnews.com). I don't think we have anyone else in SA (or Africa 
at all for that matter!).

The window regulator can sometimes be pieced back together, but if at 
all possible replace it with the new all-metal version. I realize 
that access to parts may be a bit of an issue. 

RE the headlights - it sounds like you still have a ground (earth) 
problem. Pull off the grille between the headlights and check all the 
wiring in there. There are a couple of plugs that sometimes cause 
issues. The main grounds for the front are on top of the frame just 
aft of the radiator. Check the headlight relays too.
