    Sticky steering wheel air bag cover fix

    After reading several posts concerning our sticky air bag covers, I tried several suggested products with no success. I decided to try Lacquer thinner. Not being sure of the outcome I used it on an inconspicuous area of the cover and it was working great. The trick is to keep the rag, in this...

    Exhaust tips.

    Air Check Valve

    Does anyone have a link to the step by step procedure for replacing the passenger's side AIR check valve? I do not want the re-route procedure where the tubing is cut and a new valve installed in a convenient place. I'd like to keep my car as original as possible. I'm thinking ahead for a...

    Question: What's your compliment?

    Today was cloudless, 45-50 degrees and I needed oil and a filter for my tractor so I removed the dust cover and fired up the Vette for a 30 mile one way cruise to the dealer who sells Orange colored tractors. On the way home I stopped at my local Non-Ethanol gas station to top it off and the...

    Question: How to test a switch?

    I have my 98 for 4 years now and from the get go the only thing that does not work are my fog lights. Most annoying. So far I have .... 1. Check the bulbs they are OK but no current gets to the sockets. 2. Changed the under-hood fuse and relay with new ones. 3. Pulled the nose off and checked...

    Problem solved.

    Ok, so, the Vette is on the rack until the weather straightens out and has my homemade dust cover on ... that would be two king size sheets sewn together, works very well. The problem is that when I'm out in the "Tractor barn" with the overhead door open working on some other machine and the...

    Question: What's my next move ?

    Over the last few months I have gotten two codes on my 98 Coupe ---- a B62O5 and PO410. The B6205 is the Front Seat Vertical Position Sensor Failure and the PO410 is the "Air System". My questions are where is the Vertical Position Sensor located and how do I know which seat it refers to. My...

    Question: Chirp and it's not a bird.

    I'm trying to locate an under-the-hood and faint metallic chirping sound that only occurs on acceleration in my 1998 Auto Trans Coupe. At sustained speeds there is no noise. My thinking is the belt tensioner might be the culprit but can't seem to pin it down. I don't know how many miles are on...

    Question: Speed bleeders

    I bought a set of 4 speed bleeders for my 1998 C5 coupe and was wondering if there is a specific procedure to brake bleeding that might be unusual for the C5s? Keep 'em rollin' :W Bill

    More Storage Space

    All Corvette owners are painfully aware of the lack or storage space within reach for those little neccessities like eye glasses, tissues, pens and whatever. I have come across a small metal basket that fits under the seat between the seat rails just behind the floor mountiing bolts, see...

    Question: Any ideas?

    The battery in the TPMS sensor on my left front wheel died so no signal was being received at the DIC. I ordered a new sensor pulled the wheel brought it to my local mechanic and he replaced it. Then I put the wheel back on went to program the sensors using a strong magnet. The only sensor...
