Find out how with this guide. Purchase a compatible weatherstrip seal for your Honda Accord along with weatherstrip adhesive. Comments cannot be excessively argumentative, insulting, or otherwise generally uncivil. It does not seem too bad and it is not all the time. Also, for those low mileage drivers or for vehicles that are stored not driven for weeks or months and especially in high humidity climates fuel additives to expunge water are necessary.
With the torque wrench, tighten to 33 foot-pounds. Having the factory manual really makes these kind of tasks easy since it covers everything with such great detail and with supporting diagrams. It's just the trunk that is my problem. This can be a very expensive repair. I have a 93 del sol with 97,000 miles on it. So you have a really.
What are these clips around the trunk area I hear about. I cleaned out the drain holes under the sail panels. If I can get the time, I'll snap a pic of how I see the water drain. Once all the trim seals were reinstalled and screw holes taped over with duct tape, I subjected the car to the simulated monsoon rains using my garden sprinkler. I had another del Sol and replaced the transmission oil with synthetic and it suddently developed the 3rd gear glitch after a few weeks. Rather than taking your car to a dealer, find the source of the leak yourself and determine what the least expensive option would be to repair it.
The roof is known to be the source of wind noise, squeaks, and other odd noises as well as water leaks on the sides and the front top corner of both windows. Seemed to go away in the summers. It is torn there in a few spots and the corner piece on the window track is all stuck out while the passenger side is flat as a board. I have a 1997 del Sol Si Cypress Green Pearl with several well thought out updates. A 10 mm socket and ratchet could be used to disconnect most of these hoses and connectors. I recently found this site and I've learned a lot already. So the cabin is fine now.
Find out how with this guide. I have looked myself but have had no luck. They are covered with matching color and grain vinyl so once installed, only those familiar with the del Sol would know they are not from the factory. I replaced all the clips holding my rear sail panels in and supplemented those with some good clear silicone and that fixed my very minor trunk leak. You don't necessarily have to pull up the carpet to look, you just have to look under the seat. This solution will take the most amount of time because the entire oil pan underneath the engine block will need to be removed, cleaned, and re-installed just to replace the gasket.
If you can drive in a tight circle very slowly in a parking lot first to the left then the right, making a couple circles each way with the steering wheel turned all the ay to lock, you want to listen for clicking coming from the front wheel area. I surprised Thu with the car one evening, I took her out for a drive and then I had her drive it back home to make sure she liked it before starting the refurbishment process. Both Thu and I commented on how loud the car was driving at highway speeds and I figured that there wasn't much in terms of sound deadening which was confirmed when I removed the carpet. I chose not to apply any soundproofing mat to the rear window panel and will apply it from the other side of the window well, on the inside of the trunk later. I see that eBay is a virtual junkyard with lots of reasonably priced parts to replace those like the door window and mirror control that have been used to the point that the lettering is worn off. Pull the cover all the way out if you can. You can find this just behind the oil pan.
Any chance this rusting is caused by galvanic corrosion between two dissimilar metals? Rattling noises in the dashboard and engine area may also be caused by faulty engine mounts. It didn't take long on Google to find that the company that has roots in the Saratoga Tops of the '70s is still out there and going strong. I hope it will work, it is being shipped to me, they do not carry it in their store here. Take note that replacing the brake rotors of the del Sol will also require the replacement of the calipers. Shine a fluorescent light under the hood of your car and underneath the engine. If it's not dirty, then I'm at a loss as I don't think there's any drainage hoses - just a path where the water flows toward the rear of the car.
As it sits now, the new molded, cut pile black carpet is set into place and ready for trimming and attachment. The valve cover is bolted to the top of the cylinder head and is sealed with a gasket to keep oil. I got an S to save on insurance, with my spotless driving record, it's only 1600 every 6 months for full coverage which I have to have for a few months and 800 for liability. . These are pretty old cars. And it wasn't a recall, just a service bulletin so you'll probably have to pay for it.
I thought Thu would really enjoy having a car that feels like a jet fighter cockpit when the top is on. Power antenna was an accessory that seems to be rare. I don't race and don't hard shift so those weren't issues. There had to be another leak somewhere in the car. I would buy one for sure. I've got the same problem, I've had condensation under my trunk lid since I got the sol, found I've got a pinhole leak near the rubber seal around the trunk, and my rear right hand light doesn't line up properly. Most Accords need between four to five quarts of oil.
Next step, leak hunting while the interior is stripped out of the car! This car has a glass top and I'm not sure what happened to the original. The car is always garaged, but we drove in a bad storm, and I can hear water sloshing in the trunk area. Honda's the only place I know that sells the weather stripping and it's not cheap. There is a bit of roughness from overspray on the targa sails because it's such a complicated piece to spray all at once but I did manage to get the outside edges that are visible from the sides of the car looking very smooth and shiny. I ignored it for along time. I'll bet you are correct, though I've not seen that in a Sol yet. Drive it daily if you can for a while to set the stuff right.
