So my son just totalled his 90 VW Cabriolet a couple of weeks ago. Low on funds, a neighbor had this 92 Renagade sitting in their driveway for about a year. It was her brother's that she got when he past away. I got it dirt cheap with the promise that I would get it back on the road.
It runs but I had to replace the tranny. No third gear. My guess is a bad syncro and I didn't feel comfortable ripping it apart. Took four days to get the old tranny out. Take a look at these picture to find out why.
Yes, it sat without the rear window installed for two summer and a full winter. Oh, and it had full carpet which didn't help.
Picked up a used tranny but it's a 94-95 so the input shaft is bigger. Advanced Adapters has the right pilot bearing and I bought a clutch rebuild kit with a new slave unit. Someday I will upgrade to an exteral slave but right now I need to get this Jeep on the road.
After I install the tranny, I'm doing a complete tune-up and install new floors.
I think the spray foam as a filler is a nice touch.
I'm going to photo the process and I will post as we go.
