Ok not sure how this happened. But both the door, and the dash harness, have the same sex plug for the speaker
Ok thats better:
So that was the last piece of the puzzle, so the door is now together!
Next on the list was the horn. Turns out every horn i have is bad! So i bought new ones off Rock Auto:
This is a pretty terrible picture. The horns are tucked up underneath the driver headlight, like they would be from the factory
After that i moved on to the wipers. Figured i should test them before i put arms on. Good idea! The motor was bad. So i had to get creative; youre supposed to remove the hood & cowl to replace it, but its actually possible to do it if youre careful
There is *just* enough room to reach in there and remove the clip to remove the arms:
So with that done, i moved it over in the garage, so id have room to work on the tailgate:
This unfortunately is not done. I ripped the whole gate back apart, check the window tracks & all the seals, greased the regulator, made sure everything is moving good, and even swapped the motor out for a different one, but its still struggling to roll the window up. Its like the old motors dont have the torque anymore to compress all those new seals. But, a new motor wont be here til wednesday/thursday, and this kinda works, so i closed the window and moved on to the next task.....
