1986 5KCS Turbo Repair Questions
I need some repair help. Regarding my 86 5kcst 5sp:
1. I need a new Thermo Switch. Looks easy to install, however any

feature. What's wrong and how do I fix it?
3. Lights (Sorry, I hate to do this) I noticed at a parts web site they
had XENON headlight replacements. Worth doing? Also, they had Hella
bumper mounted driving lights for $70. Worth doing? (I know , I should
get Euro's, but I can't afford em' right now. Like $1,000, right?).
My wife and I were in the Audi at night and she commented that the
lights stunk. This is pathetic 'cause my wife is automotive challenged,
and if she notices it's REALLY bad. I told her the fix is a Euro
conversion for approx. $1,000. Reply, "We're (read "you are") not
spending a $1,000 on lights for a $2,000 car." I'm neither a complete
wimp nor an idiot; I immediately got her to agree to a 91 200Q or S4 in
a couple of years, after we get another house, as reward for me driving
this "old" car around to save money. I'll never tell her the truth: I'm
