    9000 Workshop
    Hey everyone! On my 1989 9000 CD Turbo my "ABS" and my "Brake Fluid" lights are always on. Any quick and easy checks I can do before sending it to my specialist? Brake fluid is nice and full, pedal feels good. Haven't tested a panic stop yet. Thanks in advance!

    One of my headlights is oxidized in the interior because the rubber backing wasn't replaced correctly after the previous owner had a bulb changed. The light cover is sealed to the rest of the object. How I can I remove the cover without damaging it or the headlight body? How can I properly...

    9000 Workshop
    Finally had the chance to get the 9k out on the road properly for a shake-down run. Tested the clutch and gear changing and all good. Tested the front brakes since I replaced rotors last time I was at the car in Feb, and that's all good too. Did about 50 km round trip with about 20 km on 110 kph...

    I picked up this car about six months ago. I immediately noticed that the headlights were two different "colors" of temperature: the driver side seems to be a bit warmer (more yellow) than my passenger side. While it was up on jack stands for an oil change today, I left the engine running. I...
