Hello everyone, my name is Ricardo, I’m from Chile and have just entered this hobby, bought an L500 Cuore/Mira ED-20 bottom of the range from 1996, it’s my first car but have quite some experience with general mechanics, not cars, but it’s similar so I’m learning heaps.
Of course I want to modify some, that’s why I’m here, have already done some work to it, changed the suspension, front and rear, changed the wheels and tires, changed the exhaust (back to stock, the original was fixed with rebar and wire), planning to change all the gaskets because the engine is leaky, but it runs really well, changed the outer CV joints (they were completely busted).
Interiorwise, I installed central locking, power windows, an alarm, etc…
Had to fabricate some parts too, the boot/trunk cover was completely destroyed and “fixed” with a bamboo stick , made a new one with spaces for new speakers.
Things I’m looking to install are A/C and power steering, willing to import the parts if necessary.
I have done almost everything following a L700 service manual I found online, but recently I found an L500 but it’s in German, I understand it but I’m not familiar with car terminology so most of the time is guess work.
I’m mainly here to ask for a little bit of help and to learn from this awesome community (from what I have already seen).
So my first question, where can I find all the rubber front suspension/steering parts?
Best regards and thank you all!!
