Thanks.
I have an '89.

My mechanic recharged the freon recently, and I was worried that lowering the AC unit (wouldn't I need to disconnected the hoses?) would cause me to have to recharge it.

Hi all - is it possible to replace the antenna without removing the A/C box under the dash? Doesn't look like there's much room there unless I remove the A/C box.

Thank you. I was originally thinking wider would be better (so as to fold the top/bottom edges around the metal) - but I'll take your word for the 11mm size.

Question on my '89 GW: are these dash functions supposed to be illuminated? or not?

Just a silly newb question

Shouldn't the heater/AC and headlight switch cluster be back-lit,...
