  1. 55k on my 2001 C2 Tip. Only issue was need to replace oil/air seperator 200 miles ago. Cost $2k since they needed to drop trans/engine. Done by local dealership at $135 per hour and parts/coolant @$400
  2. les_gs called it right. Switch was defective. Fixed problem. Part was @$125 and a relatively easy install(so said my techy friend). My car is a 2001 C2 Tiptronic. Replacing stalk part is more expensive(double) and much more time to install
  3. I believe there is a DIY on adding a switch to one of the blank switch positions in the center console and wiring it under the dash and carpet to the switch next to the dead pedal area. Relatively simple if electronically inclined. If not Rennspec then I saw it on one of the other forums.....6speedonline. This does not automatically raise it but a flip of the switch does.......Not sure I would want it up all the time IMHO because if you park it and leave car anyone can damage it by leaning on it hard ....worse yet vandalism.
  4. thanks will replace switch first and then see if stalk function works. IF not, then replace stalk.Tks much Roger
  5. Does that mean that lights are SUPPOSED to come on when turned clockwise without requiring it to be pulled out and it the may resolve stalk issue which may not require replacement??? Tks for prompt response
  6. When I purchased auto, did once over while I was outside car and asked owner to turn on lights, turn signals, high beams etc, Did not drive car for a month before I needed to drive in the dark Issue. Headlights will only come on when I rotate switch clockwise and pull out knog(fog mode). Stalk on steering column will "flash" high beams but when stalk is pushed forward, it stays in that location but high beams will not come on nor does high beam indicator light on dash. Any idea as to cause. Are both in need of replacement? Switch is @$100 wholesale and stalk asembly is $215 plus labor. Can
