Productive weekend until this...
I did my headlight adjusters, w/out taking the lights apart $20 for the plastic adjusters. So i'm feeling all good, and tackle the next thing on the list. The RR window regulator. Take it apart, the PO rigged a bolt to keep the window up. Door pocket was falling off the panel, usual crap. Get the glass out, pop the new regulator in and then notice the damn thing has a guide rail clip broken! SOB. My $109 Ebay special burned me. So now I'm driving around with no door panel until I get this resolved. Think I'm going OEM. At least I'm taking advantage of the down time and gluing the pocket on... only good thing out of this situation. Uh, oh well. First part I've been burned on this car. and for all the work I've done in 3 weeks it's amazing. And as usual, Napa, AZ & AAP don't carry any parts for our cars in stock. they all wanted about $300 and had to order it. Doesn't do me any good. Might as well buy OEM online for cheaper.

I feel your pain. I've had one hell of a weekend with my 540. Just had to take a break from working on it before I break something else.
