For the life of me I cannot figure out a way to remove the lower fascia
panel in my C900 (late 1982) without totally removing the intruments, etc.
I'm loathe to do that at this stage, but after a few hours of frustration I
can't see any other way to do it.
Reason I need to do this is the RHS rear combination light is giving wierd
behaviour. With the electricals engaged, if I select right indicator the
front indicator light flashes but the rear one does not. Instead, the
dual-filament brake light alternates power on it's filaments, and the middle
brake light flashes.
If I press on the brake pedal, the flasher relay stops flashing and all
right-turn indication action stops until the brake pedal is released again.
I need to access the relays behind the fascia panel to trace back the
indicator wiring and see if there is some sort of wierd short circuit or
wires joined up where they shouldn't be.
The problem has only started to occur recently. Any things I can check out
without going to the trouble of gutting the insides of the car to access the
relays behind the lower fascia panel?
I have also noticed that with the rear combination lights, the earth pins on
the multi-pin connectors tend to fail. My donor car has custom earth wires
bolted to the lamp holder while my running car doesn't. I have found a
scotch-lok connector that's very badly corroded (looks like it's slightly
burnt) that I need to replace, but that's not a recent thing. Probably
existed when I purchased the car.
