resurecting again, as I like these threads, a couple of tips and tricks I have found useful from the site (or when I get some tape!), was glad when I realised you could remove the ashtray (on this thread), apologies if I've not credited you with them.
1. Wrap some electrical insulating tape around the retention bar in the sun visor to stop it flapping between down and up, gives you variable settings depending where the sun is.
2. If you are putting new side lights in and the bulb falls in the lens, take the indicator bulb out and use blu-tack on a stick to remove the bulb
3. All the standard equaliser settings on the standard 159 stereo are pants, 'Commanderfish' suggested the follow user settings which I found to make the system sound so much better:
Band (hertz): 64 160 400 1K 2.5K 5?K 10?K
Adjustment: 0 -1 +1 -1 -2 +2 +2 (or 0 -1 0 -1 -1 +1 +1)
