Hello everyone.\n\nI am new to this group, so please be a little patient with me if I mess with\nyour protocols...\n\nI have an 1991 960, turbo, petrol, automatic, 2.3 litre saloon that is\nstarting to make me very upset and more broke than before.\n\nThe main problems are:\n\n1. The rear suspension has sunk and there is not a lot of clearance in\nthe wheel bays. I am told the shocks are self-levelling and my local\nfitters want £350 each - probably plus fitting. I asked if it would be\npossible to fit standard shocks as this is less than one third of the price\nfor both. He didn't know - does anyone here know the answer please?\n\n2. The heater system is playing up. When I turn on the fans, they fire\nup and I can hear them running. However, no air comes from the front vents\nand there is just a very gentle breeze from the windscreen demister if that\nis selected. I have tried two alternative control units (that fit in the\ndashboard area) but it made no difference. Could it be the relay-type\nsilver box in the passenger footwell that is playing up (it does click\ngently when the switches on the controller unit are activated) or could it\nbe something else?\n\n3. The air-con has packed up - it may just need a recharge but I am\nloathe to splash out on this if it is caused by another problem. I switch\nit on and nothing happens, warm air blew through the vents when they were\nworking a couple of weeks ago when it was warm enough for the sensors to\ntrigger the A/C. Now of course there is nothing through the vents at all,\nas described above.\n\n4. My turbo unit seems to have packed up - there is no turbo kick-in and\nthe engine does struggle a bit under load, up hills and so on. At other\ntimes, the car trundles along happily as long as the turbo indicator does\nnot indicate it is trying to initiate the turbo.\n\nI am sad to let this vehicle go if there are economical ways of fixing it,\nbut I cannot afford a two-tonne Swedish Steel money pit sucking in all my\ncash, so any help will be deeply appreciated.\n\nThis is my third Vulva, the other two were great, a 240 and a 740, though\nthe 740 was a bugger for messing about with the electrics.\n\nThanks in advance\n\n\nSkint git.
