Here is a followup for anyone reading this thread in the future:

A bad alternator can make the OXS light come on. My alternator was only putting out about 12.5 volts and only after revving the car ...

I was able to bum a wiring diagram off a friend for the O2 circuit. It appears that there's an "RPM relay" somewhere which I assume is the counter. There's also an O2 control box. The Haynes ...

As of a few weeks ago, I've had the "OXS" light on my dash come on. It was my understanding that there's a counter on the speedometer cable that turns the light on every 30k miles. I've also ...

My thought process was that the 924S came with the following setup from the factory:
21.5mm front sway bar
no rear sway bar
23.5 mm torsion bar

My '80 came with:
21mm front sway bar
14mm rear ...

Driving a '24 always puts a smile on my face. The S seems to have a substantial increase in torque over the 2.0L Audi lump. I'm a bit dissatisfied with the handling of the car but I think most of that ...

There's no better feeling than getting your project on the road for the first time and I finally got plates today!

Up until this point, I've been doing everything in my driveway. It's finally time ...

My headlights and turn signals didn't work right when I bought my car either. There are a few things it could be.

First, before I go into detail, buy a manual. Used Haynes manuals will run you abou ...

The winter has been cold and is finally starting to break. The 924S was dreaming of hot pavement in my unheated garage all winter. I haven't done much due to the cold but I completed a few projects. I ...

It looks like my photos disappeared... all the edits are because I was fixing broken links.

I worked on it a bit over the weekend. Updates to come soon.

Until then, take a look at this battery b ...

Try pulling the injectors out of the head. Put them in gas resistant bottles, jumper the fuel pump relay. Find the flow plate located on top of your air box under the rubber intake boot. Make sure tha ...

PostForum: General Discussions   Posted: Sat Apr 28, 2018 2:22 am   Subject: late 924S carpet sets?
I tried fitting the hatch carpet from my 1980 924 into my 1987 924S to see if it would fit before I bought an early carpet set.

The hatch carpet is close, but not the same. The main issue is the le ...

It's my understanding that you shouldn't push the trip reset button while the car is moving as it will strip out the odometer gear. Replacement odometer gears are available on ebay if it bothers you e ...

For what it's worth, I topped out at 32 mpg when I drove from NY to Iowa. Pretty much that entire drive was at freeway speeds.

I've soldered a few without problems. The wire is stainless and that might be why people say not to? 60/40 nickel solder seems to work well. I hate using crimp connectors anywhere that may see water. ...
