Hi all good to be back, I have been working on my 89 , making Rita (name I call her) she is all show! no go! LOL

I mentioned to Ron I took her out, for a ride, ran great ! but the key stuck in the forward position, got the key out , but it's stuck in on, has that happened to any of the members?

You should start a new topic for this to get more attention. Maybe someone has had the same problem and will be able to help.

I would guess that the rack is broke on the bottom of the steering column. I good friend of mine had all the tools. I did have to remove the column for him and as parts are rare, I went out to the local you pick and pulled a column out of another Reatta for him to use.

Opened the post to view the photos of some mighty fine looking Reattas. Ronnie's red one is a standout (so is his landscape choices).

However, noticed the post about the key issue. My '89 had an issue (maybe not the same as bghere), but the key was sometimes hard to turn in the ignition. And, if it didn't turn, the trans would not move out of Park. My dealer replaced the ignition lock cylinder with new keys included. Cost (in July 2016) was $139 - $51 for the cylinder and balance for labor.
