PostSubject: Some stuff I now need for my wagon   Fri Jun 23, 2017 7:46 pm

Now that I have decided to keep the wagon I need a few things to put it to the way I want it.
Below is the list that comes to mind in a rough order of what is most important.

I NEED a working rear wiper motor assembly. I have bought two both being bad. I got my money back on both of them, but it's a pain. I can buy a rebuilt one from Rock auto but would prefer to save money.



Next up is passenger side fender and door trim. I had a blowout and it took out the fender piece and dented the door piece.



Probably next most important is a hood release cable assembly. mine broke near the handle, and I cut it and in now hangs down under the bumper.



I know different years have some of the switches on the seat but I have door mounted switches for everything. Both of the front door front window switches are a little hinky. They work but not properly.






Finally both of my rear courtesy light lenses were crystalized and brittle.

I definitely have both of those door switches. I will check in the AM. How's $10 each & ship.

Checked, I've got both. All switches feel good. Some of the chrome has peeled off. On one of them (maybe both), the front clip on the overall frame is either missing or broke.

I will gladly give them to you. The switches can be easily removed and swapped. I'm pretty sure you can swap chrome paddles also. You should be able to make your's whole with these.

For the cost of shipping, there yours.

PostSubject: found a couple more things   Sun Jun 25, 2017 10:44 pm

The under hood fuse box cover went missing when I had my fuel pump issue last summer.



given my hood latch cable broke, and the trouble I have opening my hood a good working hood latch would also be a good investment.

not a need but a "want" I am still looking for some sort of Molded mud flap the will work on the rear.
Given the way the wheel opening juts forward at the very bottom. plain flat mud flaps will look like crap

I have both those parts pictured. The fuse box cover you can have. I have the latch mechanism that you want, but not the cable which is probably the only thing you need. It's a common problem. If you want what I have how's $10.

Tom, please send the latch along with the switches. I don't think mine is working right, always had issues with it. I betting another will work smother. then again it could just be an adjustment to position or hood height or whatever. Regardless I am tired or deity intervention in order to check my oil.....

I have the hood cable and handle. I can sell them separately. $35 for the cable, and an additional $15 if you want the handle. I also have a couple of rear wiper motors for $35 each if bought with the other parts, and the bottom door for $45 and fender trim for $15 (I have to verify the door trim), but there will be a shipping addition because of the length of the door trim will make the package a bit more expensive to ship.

I also have the hood latch if Tom's does not work out. Yours looks like it could work fine with a cleaning and adjustment. If you can see/mark it when you close it, check for proper alignment/rubbing.

Sorry I haven't gotten back with anybody. I have had no time to work on the wagon or to even put the few parts I got on.
The good news is, I am using it as a daily driver and am having no problems with it.
