It was suggested I start a thread on this project, so below is my first pass issues.
Electrical problems include. No Power windows, No power locks, No turn signals, No top down, do to windows I imagine. I think the window washer pump is out also.
Side mirror problems. Driver side has delaminated. I placed a replacement over it. One of those sheets that you cut to size and it acts as the mirror. It is temporary fix, but should work for a while. Passenger side mirror is in the trunk. The brackets are totally broken. I will need to purchase a replacement of the housing. I put a temp mirror in its place for now. It looks like crap, but is safer until I can find and install parts.
Rear view mirror is loose. Not sure how to tighten it yet.
Center console rear storage area has screws out of it. It looks like I can just put the 2 screws back in. Not sure why they are out.
Interior has the paint problem that they all have, but I saw a video on how to fix that, so I will take care of that soon.
Headliner is being held up with pins, so it will need to be replaced.
Aftermarket stereo was installed, and the dash was not really put back together well. It is loose towards the bottom, and there is a gap from the main piece to the bottom section. Not really sure all speakers are working either.
Driver's side door interior handle works, but is at a bad angle, not in line like the passenger side. I will need to pull the panel to check this.
Both doors have an area missing at the front of the doors, interior. When the doors are shut, you cannot see this, but open doors show that a part of the panel seems to be missing.
Air filter was nasty, so I will be picking up another one tomorrow. (complete)
I think I will take it to an auto electric repair shop. I really need the turn signals, and other power things to be working.
Also suggested "If you open a thread asking for info, I'm sure someone with an EPC can get you the correct part number for your VIN!" This was in reference to the PSE unit. VIN# WDBKK47F1YF150260
Thanks for any help. I am a little side tracked right now, as I am replacing the front fenders on my Jeep Wrangler to get rid of rust.
