Relays…

Posted by: | Comments Comments Off on Relays…
I have reason to believe that my power window relay has gone bad. Using a test light, I'm getting power on the wire from the fuse box, but not on any of the three other terminals (red, black, or white/tan). The single terminal comes from the fuse box and the other three goes to the passenger's side window switch, I believe. I've called and searched and no one seems to have one. Is there any way to repair a relay or any other relays that can be substituted? View attachment 41479 ...

Parking and brake lights

Posted by: | Comments Comments Off on Parking and brake lights
I bought Sylvania Zevo LEDs for the LeBaron, remembering that the incandescent brake lights are kinda tough to see at certain times of the day. I got home and pulled the old lights out and put the new ones in. Expecting to see a drastic change, I turned the headlights on and went back to see what the parking lights looked like. Nothing. So, I hit the turn signals. Both sides worked fine. No fast blink or anything. I have no brake or parking lights and before, I did. I put the incandescents...

Bearings

Posted by: | Comments Comments Off on Bearings
I have another newbie question. I'm used to swapping out 4x4 hub assemblies and FWD rotors. First time changing them out on a RWD. Do I need to install a bearing race on the outside between the actual bearing and rotor? Do I need to swap them both out? I do know I need to pack the bearings with grease beforehand.

Parking brake strut spring

Posted by: | Comments Comments Off on Parking brake strut spring
I've been looking for a set of these things for a week now and I can't find any. Is there any that are compatible with my LeBaron's 10" drums?

The picture isn't of the exact part, just for comparison.

’78 LeBaron calipers

Posted by: | Comments Comments Off on ’78 LeBaron calipers
I just got my calipers from Rock Auto today. I opened one box and there's two small bolts, two big and two small brackets, and even small rubber bands. This doesn't look like any type of brakes I've ever dealt with. What gives? Is it something I'll probably understand after I start taking stuff apart?
