rockfangd Posted December 9, 2018 Report Share Posted December 9, 2018 Hi All. So unfortunately I have to drive my D'Elegance this winter. I found it has a few issues with the cold. I replaced the battery today as it could not handle it. The shifter is so hard to move I am afraid of breaking something. It is fine when it is warm out and when it warms up but not when cold. My 1996 was the same way but not as bad as this one. I ordered a new cable from the dealer this morning. I am just hoping it is only the cable and not something in the column or transmission. Anyone have any issues with these? On a side note the front end sounds like crap as well when cold. Rides nice but makes nasty clunking noises when hitting small bumps. There again when warm outside 60*+ no noise. I have new front Arnott struts but cannot find the rest of the parts needed to assemble them. They have been sitting since last year because of this. If desperate the only thing I can think of is to buy a used set and disassemble them to get what I need. Happy Holidays to all.
