Welcome! I've owned an 85 and a 92 both new, and currently own an 84 and a 93. If you need advice, just holler. I have the factory service manuals.

I currently own an 89. I had an new 86 when I was 20. Since then I have 4 different 89's and another 86 and 88. Almost all of them with T-Tops. Loved them all. Looking for another 86 for my son...

Old Poll, but since I just recently saved a 1986 Daytona Turbo Z C/S Black/Gold, I thought I would revive it.

New to here, I have a 1988 Daytona Shelby Z with 140,000 miles currently parked, needs another turbo (second time) overhaul since it is leaking oil big-time into the exhaust. It is clean and needs paint, interior is still nice and I have owned it since new (got it day before Thanksgiving 1987). I also have a 1990 Daytona ES 3.0 automatic with only 74.000, very clean, redid the trans when I got it five or six years ago with upgrades, it is a driver (I'm retired) and doesn't get driven more than 2000 miles a year. It did have working pop up headlights for the first 4 years but they get done manually now since I cannot figure out where the headlight module is-I have found some reference to it on the web but it says it is either located to the left of the steering column or under the dash up where a center speaker would go-I have no idea how I'd get to that, the vague references to it make it sound like it is simple to get to...anyone know the trick?

The control module is in the center stack, near the radio. They suffer from bad solder joints as well as the epoxy filling leaking out like goo all over everything.

I had the inserts for the defroster out, and see 4-13mm bolts that hold the dash to the firewall. I did not remove them mostly because it looked like I should remove the center stack to pull back the dash and probably other things. Even looking up from underneath and removing the lower side panels to the console, dropping glove box, pulling the heater controller and radio out I could not see the module-I've looked online and cannot find any description for actually removing the module, but plenty on how to repair it once out.
