Hey there

I already posted that I am a newbie from Dallas

I have an 87 GT that I am working on fixing up.

Wondering if there is someone nearby that I can meet up with that will go through my car with me. I sort of know what needs to be replaced, but I don't know all the parts necessary to fix it.

Seems I missed a get together here in Dallas

For example, my power locks are not working well enough to lock the door when the button is pressed. There are several things to buy in the locks category but I dont know exactly what I need. Is Dorman a good brand, things like that.

Same thing with power windows, driver one goes down, but its slow, the passenger one is stuck.

I would like to do one task at a time, meaning replace the rubber molding that is cracked, replace the door lock mechanisms necessary and power window mechanisms all at the same time.

I would probably have to take all of these parts somewhere to get them installed, I dunno.


I can pm my phone number if that helps as well, just wanting to get steered in the right direction and not make mistakes starting out


Thanks Alot!

Well, the good thing is you are in Dallas. There are plenty of Fiero enthusiasts around to help you in the right direction. Many of these things you can do yourself with some simple tools and an introductory level of mechanical ability. The bad thing is that I'm in Houston and can't help at the moment. Get in touch with blakeinspace and he'll point you in the right direction.

For windows and locks, the easy fix is some grease on the components. The hard part is removing the inside door panels to get at the mechanisms. That fixed my passenger side door lock issue when we removed the panel to fix a wobbly PS mirror. While everything was off, some white grease was applied. After all that grease is 27 years old.

When you do get in there make sure to clean the old grease out before you put new on. That old stuff in there is most likely stiff and heavy.
