  1. Sounds like my kind of repair! I will be beside myself if this is indeed the problem.Thanks for the insight!
  2. Good day my fellow esprit folks, This is my first post to the new web site ! and it looks very cool! I have had many miles of trouble free pleasure out of my MY88 but now have developed a new problem. Last week I was tooling around rather fast when I spied a local state trooper and quickly exited the highway by quickly down shifting and then accelerating quicking on a side road.Between my second and third shift,my car puts out a very load back fire.No other problem detected then or now.But from that point on,it has developed a somewhat of a backfire between shifts.I do ALL of my own repairs as no one near me even knows what my car is,i.e. (hey back to the future car!) If anyone has a clue could you please advise as it weighs heavy on me not even knowing where to statrt with this repair. Thanks Folks! Roll Tide.
  3. THE SPACERS ARE THE SAME PART NUMBER FOR THE REAR,i HAVE SPACERS ON THE FRONT AND THEY SIT AT THE CORRECT HEIGHTS ON BOTH SIDES. THE PROBLEM IS THAT THE REAR HANDLES PULL THE GLASS FAR TO TIGHTLY AGAINST THE WEATHERSTRIP,WHICH i DID CHANGE OUT FOR THE TALLER ONE FOR GLASS.NOW EVEN IF THE FRAME LIP WAS HIGHER,THE HANDLE STILL WOULD NOT CLOSE FULLY.IT WILL GO HALFWAY LATCHED AND THE GLASS IS TIGHT AGAINST THE WEATHERSTRIP AND IT ALL SITS AT THE CORRECT LEVEL,WHICH LEADS ME TO BELIEVE THAT THE NEEDS TO BE ANOTHER SPACER AT THE REAR OTHER THAN THE ORIGINAL SHOWN AS INTERCHANGING.
  4. Good day friends, I have a problem that developed while swapping a glass sunroof to my 1988 Turbo. The original composite roof fit just great with no problems at all.I purchased a new glass top and swapped all of the parts that were the same and purchased the ones that were different per the parts guide.Now I cannot clasp the sunroof down as it pulls the glass top about an inch to far down below level with the rest of the body.I replaced the gasket with the proper one and according to the parts diagram,there isn't a different spacer for the rear at the handles than the original.(I have the old style handles) Any suggestions on what could be done to make this fit right?Is there a spacer for this conversion that is not listed in the parts diagram?
  5. Simple question guys, Will the wheels from a 2002 Esprit fit a 1988 Esprit ?
  6. Well I (meaning me) am out of the running now that last night, around 8:00 pm.The last of my X-mas gifts was given out. Thus the fabled tree returned to it's lonely box on the garage shelf of loneliness. Where it will reside until the day after Thanksgiving when it will spring to life with all of its original luster and fortitude. Good luck to those still in the running and may the force of Christmas be with you.
  7. Ah my young grasshopper,you only thought you were to be awarded this honor. I am still planning to take down my artificial Christmas tree,well perhaps this coming weekend if I have the time. (she is running pretty good right now) Too bad I just realized your in Austin.I have been in the Cedar Park area since last Tuesday.I also have a friend that owns a couple of autobody shops in Austin.Custom Car Crafters.They were on Overhaulin for building Lance Armstrongs car.I get to go home Thursday though.maybe another time.
  8. Bib's I tried to email kato at the address given but it was no good.My email says its not a good email address? Anyway it's not all that important.But thanks for your help. Doyle.
