A Pillar Trim - Help!

84 GTV-6. Can anyone please tell me how the trim on the A pillar is attached, or should I say how do I reattach it? Pictures would be helpful. I found some metal clips in the car that I suspect are part of this. They are about four inches long and an inch wide with a lip along one edge. I recently h...

Re: I A P 84 GTV6 ID

So I went to the IAP site and was redirected to Centerline. Centerline purchased them.
I don't know the status, but I did not find what I was looking for. :|

Interior Lights

My the plastic on my old interior lights failed. I read on here somewhere that VW/Audi used one the that is a touch longer. Requires a bit the cut out to be lengthened a bit. I found some in the Pick & Pull. They too have had the same fate. I found a source for news ones at cip1.com. The quality...

Re: Replace clutch master

U.S. Alfa GTV-6 Clutch Master Cylinder replacement: Tools: 6mm allen wrench, ball end preferred. I was able to get a 3/8 drive socket with about a 7” allen end, from Harbor Freight.

Re: Replace clutch master

Took another look at it tonight. Now I am off to the store for allen wrench to cut off and a section of rod to weld on.
Buy that man a drink :!:
Thanks everyone for your help.

Re: Replace clutch master

After my post I found some pictures on here from x-rad. The hole in the firewall looks be about the same size as the outline of the housing. Mine seems barely large enough to clear the shafts from the cylinders. I can barely see one of the bolts. Taking the boot of will help immensely. But I could b...

Replace clutch master

'84 GtV-6: I need to replace the clutch master and looked under the dash. Ouch! I am wondering about disconecting the brake peddle also and pulling the housing. I can then work on it under the hood? Or...because the hole on the fire wall is smaller then housing, I could drill holes above the bolts. ...

Car, she no run

84 GTV/6 I installed a new light/turn signal switch unit. Now the car starts, runs for about 10 seconds, then dies. I am not getting juice to fuel pump. I have juice from 88y to 88d, and the relay clicks when I open flap in the airflow sensor. My wiring diagram shows that the hot wire comes from the...
