Itís totally dead, but Iíll hang on to it.
Adam, I was planning to drop you a mail but Iíve been lucky and found a single solenoid for sale locally. Itís in the mail and hopefully here before the weekend.
gzig5, like you mentioned in your post, Iím positive the leads can break off on the solenoids the way they do because they can move around too much. Mine is an early car as well (1998) so it doesnít have the grub screws on the cover. I believe fitting the newer covers avoid this from happening (atleast I havenít heard of solenoid wires braking off on newer models).
Canít wait to get her on the road again!
