anyone know where i can find one for cheap for a 1985 P-type manual mk2? I went to the dealer to see how much one would run me, 79.00 dollars is pretty pricey. I wanna fix my fog lights and have no clue how to even get the damn light casing off. the metalic holder wont even pop off, or is it not supposed to? im a supra noob :oops:

like, theres sum lights on the side of the fog lamp that turn on, small ones, unless its the reflection from my front passing lights. but if not, then are those my regular fog lights/bulbs? im hoping i dont needa rewire sumthing to make them work, oh yea one major question, on the center console. theres two switches, i kinda figure the back one is for the radio antenna? so is the one closer to the radio the switch for fog lights? any info would be greatly appreciated

Ah...... We have to hold another :n00b:'s hand.....

Foglights!!!! DO NOT try & pry the metal trim ring off!!! Great way to bend it!!!! It's held in by 2 small screws that you can just barely see inside the grille.

Step 1. Pop out the sides of the grille. Look inside the edge of the grille you will see a pair of tabs that hold the grille in on the side. Use a flablade screwdriver & spread the tabs apart. You'll need to push out the grille w/ your other hand.

Step 2. Remove corner turn signal housing. Should be pretty obvious.

Step 3. Remove 2 screws that hold in the trim ring for the fogs. Remove foghlight housing & replace bulbs. Reassemble is the reverse.

Console switches: Forward one is the foglights, rear switch is NOT for the radio antenna, that's for your rear window wiper. Foglight switch: Push down towards the radia turns them on, push down towards the rear turns it off.

DO YOU HAVE A OWNERS MANUAL???? Just wondering (pardon me for yelling)....

Headlight knob on turn signal stalk. When turning on: 1st position does nothing. 2nd position turns on parking lights, 3rd turns on/pops up headlights. Turning back: turns off headlights, parking lights stay on. Next click: All lights are off, but headlight pods are still up. THIS POSITION COMES IN HANDY IF YOU NEED TO CLEAN THE HEADLIGHTS, OR CHANGE A BULB!! (sorry... really wishing you had a owners manual...). Next click: lowers headlight pods.

Another item to check at the dealer, is to see if they are still making reproduction owners manuals.. They were available for awhile.

In the meantime, keep searching on EBay for a 85 TSRM, they will pop up on occasion, you just need to be patient... Same for a used 85 Owners Manual....

George: The TSRM on Ebay is for a 83, he needs a 85.

In the meantime, I need to be to more patient w/ the newbies... Esp those who don't have owners manuals.... :oops:
