Re: Blaupunkt Radio Recommendation

Dale,
I have a few pictures of my original 78 530 Blaupunkt radio I can email you. I haven't posted pictures here in a long time and forgot how to do it. I think I used photo bucket in the past.

Re: 77, 78 side mirror glass

I just checked realoem. The part numbers for just the glass are the same for an e24. Part numbers 51161848819 and 51161849648 Although its NLA, I suppose I could just try to find an e24 mirror up to 8/1979. Of course this is assuming I could separate the glass from the mirror without damaging it. Mi...

77, 78 side mirror glass

Hey guys, My e12 drivers side view mirror glass is cracked. Does anyone know if the e24 or e23 glass with the same looking mirror fits? It's the two year only (I think) chrome mirror that mounts on the glass corner, not on the door skin. It seems like finding a used e24 mirror with a good glass woul...

Re: Not the AFM but what?

I had a similar issue. I remember getting stuck on the side of the highway and crawling underneath the car to run a wire from the fuel pump to the battery. The car started and I made my way home. Check the connections and contacts at the ignition control module. Mine was not plugged in all the way. ...

IIRC, the part of the front frame rail that clamps the US bumper shock absorber was left alone, but I cut off (trimmed) the tab with a self threading nut on the euro bumper bracket.

My US spec 78 has no pump inside the tank.
It has wires on top of the pick up for the fuel gauge.

Speedometer off??

I believe my speedometer is off by 5 to 10 mph or more depending at what speed I am doing. At 25-35 mph it seems it's off by about 5mph, then when I am doing 35-45 or more it's off by 10mph or more. What gives? I noticed while doing a nice long drive on highway, looked down and speedometer said 138 ...
