Now, I just need to figure out why my key remotes won't unlock nor lock the car or open the trunk?!?!? I checked the fuses and try to reprogram but nothing happens during the reprogramming. The console lock buttom works and I can manually open the doors with the key but not with the remote.

I searched all over the internet and think it might be my rearview with the remote sensor. Any help!?!?
I have this same issue, lock button works but unlock does not (on driver side).

13. Diff bushing
14. Driveshaft guibo

I fixed my automatic air conditioner, got the system evacuated and filled with R134a. The whole process was done by an automated, state of the art, new machine how ever I couldn't help noticing and doubting the fact that the machine filled the system with about 820 gram of R134a instead of 730 (+-25gram) that I have read somewhere However, these guys do nothing else all day but fix and fill AC's...

Anyway, all works great and flawless and she's cool on the inside again...

Advice: Don't park that close to the bumper stops, at least when you are parking from the front. I lost 3 fender liners to those bumper stops already.

Mango I really think by the time you're done with your 330 it will be all brand new. I've never seen somebody with such dedication to a vehicle! I sure wish I had the cash flow to be like you because if I did... well, it would be expensive. Haha.

Haha thanks, man. Pretty much there. I still need a front windshield cowl and headlight seals (where it meets the hood) everything else is in top shape... suppose I could spring for some new drivers side headlight bolts. (I replaced the passenger ones and realized i didn't order enough bolts)

Shop at the right places and don't need much of a cash flow!
