Hi , I am new to the board but happy to have found it. Please suggest a tech manual, I have not seen one around and I have owned the car for six years and would like to find a guide. I must say I am amazed at the way some of the accessory parts ( dash , headlamps etc ) go together!

I would like to replace my rear shocks with OEM factory. Is this pretty straight foward or are there little Stuttgart tricks to be aware of ? It does look like the interior finishing pieces of the trunk must come out. Any help out there?? Thanks .

Welcome Bob,
Buy the factory CD's, for a little over $100, they are available here, so are the shocks, at the partsshop. Just click on the partsshop box up on the screen and get a quote. If you are a DIY'r, it will be the best investment of your life. The trunk liner has to be removed to get to the shocks.
Good luck,

Welcome Bob,

If you don't want to spring for the CD,pick up a Haynes Manual. You can get them from most parts stores or off the net.

They will either help you stay out or get into trouble, depending on your perspective. They run about $15.00
