    Power window "slipping"

    My 79 LeBaron yesterday showed some problem with the power window. While smoking (yeah-yeah, just yank about it :) ), I always open it a little bit to keep smoke out. Works fine so far. Yesterday, the window did not close properly while driving. After returning home, I checked the situation: *...

    79 LeBaron Medallion - currently front brakes re-do.

    Some might remember my short thread about the locked up front left brake while driving to our holiday destination. A oldschool mechanic from our local AAA (-> ADAC in Germany) was able to free it up with his crowbar, but of course, it's not a permanent fix. (Thread got lost due to sever issues)...

    Howto - Trip odometer broke / 79 LeBaron

    Folks, my trip odometer stopped working. What a catastrophy! o_O This vehicle is one of the most service friendly, I used to use (just how boring - no need to remove the speedo-cable at the rear....) ;) Unfortunately, this applies to the F and G only. IIRC, you'll need to disconnect the speedo...

    2dr LeBaron - window getting sucked outwards?

    Hi folks, I noticed that the driver and passenger windows are getting sucked outward at the top at higher speed (above 65mph). I know its tricky, because the window is fixed only at its lower end, but driving at the Autobahn with say, 80-100mph (car and engine do it extremely pleasantly, I am...

    M-Body wire wheel covers interchange

    I have a new idea for a next small project (aside of a couple dozen others :cool:) Got an opportunity to grab 4 good 15x5.5 steel rims (3.75 backspace), planned as winter tires. For regulatory insurance reasons we have to mount m+s tires if temperature is below like 40°F - most likely because...

    Secondary air woes

    Just a couple days ago, my LeBaron (318-4) started to have detonations in the muffler when I got off the gas. That was really annoying and loud... Checking the muffler for leaks, but only some very minor hole (approx 1/10"). Then, thought over the whole thing and removed the belt of the smog...

    Get some nice rear trim corrected...

    One of the imperial eagles on the tail light almost got lost, when I cleaned it... So, that one was re-glued to the tail light, looks much better than without. Further, I was able to secure a trunk nameplate to replace the broken old one. Just have to glue it on, when weather permits...

    Correcting my inherited Edelbrock 1406 setup...

    My LeBaron was running with a much to high idle, approx. 1150rpm. Today I had the chance to get it corrected, here's what happened, if anyone stumbles upon such / similar problems. The original TQ was -according to the last owner- "undriveable". So he decided to get it replaced with a 1406...

    Get yours conserved...

    Just got my 79 LeBaron back from the shop. As I plan do use it daily, I felt it's about time to get it properly protected for daily use - rain, snow, salt. All that usual and bad stuff. Mine had some minor protection on a couple spots, but corrosion inside started already. Thankfully no major...

    Change AM radio to Retrosound - 79 LeBaron

    So, the change is done. As "usual" unfortunately not enough pictures made... But here's my how-to, hoping it might help someone. FIRST AND FOREMOST: DISCONNECT THE BATTERY! Then I took off the instrument cluster bezel, removed two screws of the old radio and disconnected the few connections on...

    Replacing a broken temperature control cable / 79 LeBaron

    The service manual is quite clear on how-to (remove instrument bezel and upper dash trim). But it missed the removal glove box (easy) and (at least loosening the upper part) of the lower dash trim - both sides!.... You can't just take the long vent channel (behind the glove box) out, as it is...

    Fix temperature warning LED flickering - M-Body LeBaron 1979

    The red LED in my temp gauge was flickering all the time. The sending unit and the gauge tested just fine. It turned out that after 40 years the condenser on the little printed circuit right behind the gauge (not the big one!) was gone. It obviously dried out and had almost no capacity. It's...
