  1. I do have the hatch access in the back thank you. I will experiment with it in case the switch fails. Regarding the trunk lid. I am wondering for those with this problem, if neodymium magnets might help. I have not looked at the trunk for an appropriate location, but if you install one or two of appropriate strength on the body and a thin piece of metal in the lid, it might hold the trunk down. These magnets come in various strengths and can be very strong and you must be careful working with them. I recently had my interior vent covers covered and did not want to put screw hol
  2. 1. My 83 has an electronic trunk opener but I see no way to open the trunk if this fails . Is there a way? 2. Also my rear view mirror is placed on the windshield in the place normal for most cars. Is this the original location for the 83 or more down near the dash like early modem Avanti. Thank you. A83
  3. Thanks , I took it apart again and it looks like the boot is inverted sitting be!ow the the linkage and it looks like the boot site below the console mounting plate so I think I have one. I would have thought there would still have been a small rubber piece right below the gear shift lever itself. Thank you , now I know I have the boot. Regards A83
  4. Ok great thanks. Does that boot screw right under the chrome bezel and collapse readily?
  5. Thanks for the picture. I took mine apart but did not see any way to get the chrome base next to the boot off without taking the shift linkage apart. Is there any easy way? Plus it looks like the boot is a dust cover for all of the linkage and transmission underneath. I would have thought there would have been a thin piece of rubber like there is for the brake handle.

  6. Is there supposed to be a rubber piece at the base of the automatic shifter to act as a dust cover similar to the piece surrounding the base of the hand brake? Thanks A83

  10. Update- I had a mechanic install the power window regulators and motors from NU- Relics. They came out just fine and they have a lifetime warranty if you have the receipt. Thanks for all your help. The regulator was broken so I decided to go with the NU- Relics kit for both doors. Always appreciate your help and advice. A83
