New Gal with a new-to-me Astro

Postby SheFixedThatAstro [OP] » January 17th 2021, 8:44pm

Hi All,

Just got my 2003 2WD PASS with 116k and have found so much good info here, so I joined up.

She needs work and I'm all for doing what I can myself with your help!!. Aside from the bay being compact it seems fairly simple. Already installed new head unit and mini subwoofer, new LED dome lights, changed the oil, air filter, replaced 2 busted door lock actuators.
Have more to do as she's leaking from the pwr steering pump but I can't wait to get he in shape. Pics to come.

Welcome.

May I ask which HU and where you located the sub? 2003 RWD here, too, deciding what to do about those items but have replaced and am replacing speakers. I'm considering sub under passenger seat, under rear seat, and built into a console box.

Funny, I have the same mileage. How's your cowl under-wiper plastic strip? Cracked or intact?

Hope its warmer wherever there is than here!
