I agree with MIPS unless there's a rotted spot in the line it should come out with compressed air.

Thanks. I don't trust my memory, so I'M PROBABLY thinking of something else. That seemed kind high to me, but I've never had one done before.

hi, this is going back 3, maybe four years, but I think I paid about $150 for a pro to pull out my old headliner, recover it, and reinstall. For a professional auto interior shop, it's really not that big a job, the Eagle headliner is just a piece of thin particle board. Need some new material and a can of 3M adhesive.
good luck,  gz

I'd just take compressed air and blow the line out.

I've got a couple of the steel vacuum lines that are clogged. I'm planning on capping stuff up probably until I get something else to deal with it. What's the typical solution here? Just go all plastic? Is there steel still made in the same diameter?

Two PREVIOUS Eagles I've had here in Misery. Have actually owned (including the two I have now) a total of 6. The first I bought new. Had an '81 Kammback, after about a year I decided I wanted a wagon, so I went to the dealer, sat down & ordered a wagon speced out as close as I could get to what I wanted. Traded the Kammback in. No pics. of either. The flat black one was my first Eagle here on The Nest (now known as "The Den"). It got rear ended & was totaled by the ins. co., I then bought White Eagle as a replacement. When I took it in for inspection, the ENTIRE front subframe was rotted away!!! That was when I bought THIS wagon from Brandon.

Okay, I've managed to convince this  :censored: :censored: :censored: :censored: :censored: piece of  :censored: :censored: :censored: VOMPUTER to co-operate (FINALLY). Here are the two I currently own. '83 wagon (FORMERLY Brandon's - '83 Eagle). The sedan is an '84 I picked up up in Wisc. Both 258s & automatics. I don't recall exactly now, but the sedan only has 7x,xxx miles on it. I WANNA say around 72,500 approx. but I don't trust my (LACK OF) memory.

Just curious (low on the priority list), what do they charge in your area (general location, not trying to find you :P SAMPLE: Albuquerque, Boston, Denver, etc.). I asked about a year ago near St. Louse & forget what they quoted me. For SOME reason, I've got $500.00 in mind, but that seems kind high to me. I read a post (from about 5 years ago), someone said they paid less than $150.00.

EDIT
Guess it WOULD help if I mentioned WHAT!!! Looking for headliner (installed) prices. Also, as a side note, I'm looking for a memory!! Mine seems to be slipping!
