Hello All
I would like to know on the three piece Rear bumper if the end pieces where the exhaust exits through can be removed/replaced without removing the rear bumper from the car. I canít find anything in the service manual to confirm this. As far as I can see there are only 2 bolts holding it in place.As always thanks for any information itís always appreciated.
Thanks

Just had the dash and front and rear windlace replaced in my 55
since this was done
I am having a problem. The 20 amp fuse that is connected to this circuit which also provides Power to the rear cigarette lighters C pillar courtesy lights and outdoor side marker lights as well as the brake lights the fuse blows intermittently .could it be a problem with the pigtail wire that comes off the light switch for the rear courtesy lights maybe a bad door switch ? something is obviously shorting or drowning out the circuit any advice as always is welcome
Thanks Mark

The negative battery cable from my battery is bolted right to my engine block does this indicate negative ground? If it is positive ground
Where would the cable from the negative side of the battery attach to
It is a late 55 any possibility it was wired like a 56 because of how late in the production run it was made

Thanks

Hello Howard when I got home I checked the Packard and I have verified that I had an oriiginal pressure sending unit and it is what I believe to be the original one on the engine soon as I touched the wire it literally fell right off and the connector crumbled in my hand also the connector on the sender spins around so obviously itís no good
I will go to Napa tomorrow and buy the replacement unit I thank you for your help by the way when I disconnected the oil pressure wire the gauge went back to L without a problem thanks again
