1996 Orient Blue/Tan part out

I bought this car for the Style 42's and maybe even repair. That is going to be cost prohibitive so I will soon be pulling parts. I will be keeping the engine cover, MAF and a good part of the interior wood trim. Engine and transmission are good. Radio (DSP) is not coming on. I believe the head unit is bad. I just put a CD43 in my DD and will be using the head unit from that car to test the parts car. Car has tamper dot from PO having cluster replaced but not coding VIN into it. Looks like on backlight is out and a just a few pixels. I will start in the next week or two and will do it as I have time. If you need something right away, you should probably look somewhere else. I am not doing this to make money, just recover some of what I spent on the car.

Drivers fender and front bumper are trashed. Hood damaged but repairable. Drivers mirror is gone and drivers door has repairable dent. Windows all work properly. Cupholder is just like yours, broken. Seats are worn pretty good. Have just a few pics for now.

If the pass rear-view mirror is good and the mirror has the 'dip' feature I am interested. Also I could use to plastic lugs that anchor the rubber straps in the trunk. There are embedded in the carpet.

I will take a look at the mirror itself. I know it dips when you put it in reverse if that is what you are referring to. I will put a list together and check some stuff Sunday. Won't have time to pull parts but can take some pics and check on any requests.

They are 18's but I was not planning to sell those unless I come across some cheap Mpars before spring. Going to use the weaves thru winter.

If they go down in reverse then it's a fit for me.

I just need the actual glass. It's removable. There is a small tab underneath the glass that you have to move, either to the left or right, with a small blade screwdriver and it turns the locking ring that holds the glass on.

Unless the deal fall thru, the rear bumper is sold. He is just buying the bumper cover so if you need the rail/shocks for it, let me know. If you mean the kidney grills, they are both lose. I will look to see if the clips on the grill are bad or if it's the backside tabs. If you have good inners, you may be able to use these.

No hurry. Weather has had me behind on other projects. Will be starting on the car a little this weekend. One of the grills is a cheap aftermarket with broken rails.

Skippy has dibs on the grills, but one of them is broken. Really cheap. I will be taking pictures this weekend of various parts.

Sorry, did not get a notification email on this. The cluster obviously has a backlight bulb out. You can see in the picture that there is a pixel out in the 'H' of 'LIGHTS'. The car goes thru a series of warning because of the damage to the car and it appears those 5, or however many there are top to bottom, are the only ones that don't work. I have not pulled the cluster out to see if the IKE module is a separate piece or not. PO said the cluster was replaced due to bad pixels but since there is a tamper dot, they either purchased a used one or got it from the dealer and did not want to pay for the VIN coding. I believe it was a used on as reading the mileage from the LCM, it shows the car has 147k miles on it. When there is a discrepancy between modules, cluster always shows the higher mileage.

Have not forgot about this. I took a few interior pics but forgot to take a pic of the glass. Having trouble with getting wheels off so got tied up with that. Won't work on it tonight but may go down and take a pic for you.

Edit: Not perfect but not bad.

Sunroof spoken for. Some parts may take awhile to remove so will get back with you if they source the part elsewhere.

Do you have double pane glass or single pane glass in the windows? I have a '98 750IL and want to start replacing the glass because of lamination problems. How about your washer pumps, are they operational and what type of electrical connector is it? Please send pictures of it. Thanks!
