My '89 200q has several problems: When I go over speed bumps or over any
kind of rough surface, my driver's side front strut makes clunking or
rattling sounds. Fairly new Boge's all around, and that side does not
appear to have a broken cartridge, mushy rubber bump stop and missing
boot replaced. Could this be the strut bearing?
As I drive around in D.C's oppressive 90 degree plus heat, I often get
faint gas vapors in my car (A/C on). Is there a carbon canister on this
car? Does it have a replaceable filter? Any thoughts on what this might
With thanks to Rob Winchell of the list, I have acquired "wood" trim for
the climate control panel. How do you remove the panel? Does the
console need to come apart?
There is a rubber hose (thin diameter) that comes from the pass. side
front fender (actually disappears into the fender) and hangs down by the
oil cooler unattached. When I first bought the car (Jan. '97) the hose
was connected (with a windshield washer tee) to the cloth covered braided
drain pipe for the oil catch tray between the intake manifold and head.
Any thougths on what this should attach to? Is this related to my vapor
When I check codes on channel 11 (or is it 10?) of the climate control, I
get reading 09. A friend told me this was due to a defective temp
sensor. Is this accurate? Could this be the source of my vapor
Many thanks in advance, and thanks to all that helped with the wastegate
problem on my '86 5kt.
