Hey there! Looking smart!

1st and 2nd being stiff to go in could be the selector mechanism (if you’re lucky) needs to be adjusted OR perhaps the synchromesh is beginning to fail. I’d check the linkage first.

Those pedals look quite rusted which is a bit odd, not got any water leaks up above have you? Some rust near the pedal pad might be normal but the brake pedal seems rusted high up.

[quote="meisner"]Phill thank you for the good words.

It was time to remove the clicking sound on the doors.There are plastic washers what wear out and under pressure they make the sound.
Also with the last job i found out that alternator belt has a crack and needs replacing.
There were 2 diffrent belts for 1997 calibra with AC so i took both and next wednesday my friend will change it.
I ordered new door washers from my local opel dealer.I ordered 3 sets because never know when they stop making them.


Can you post the part number for the plastic washers up as I need to get a set for my car.

So finaly i got the gear linkage problem solved.
Problem was that the linkage was adjusted wrong.

I also changed the fuel filter because last time it was changed was over 3 years ago.
Oil and other filters will be changed soon because 8000 is driven right now after change.
Old filter
Image
New filter.
Image
And after the drive i just enjoyd the drive.

Also i checked the orginal steering wheel what i got with the car and it is a keke pattern just worn out.
When the car came to Estonia the other steering wheel was at the trunk.
I will restore it but that will be sometime towards spring because money goes out a lot ;)

It was time to change the fuel pump because there were problems with starting.Fuel pump lid ei quite rusty.I have to check maybe there is a change to use another car lid.Right now we put a rust stop on until we find another lid,because they dont make it to calibra anymore.

I also made a video how to change a Calibra Fuel Pump.

Have to be honest, I like the MoMo wheel. I have the original on mine but needs renovating just like yours. So for now I have a (slightly nasty) leather cover...
