1974 Bricklin

We have a 1974 Bricklin and can’t seem to figure out what is wrong with the pneumatic doors. The lines hold pressure and the system activates, but the doors still won’t open! Help.

These are unique cars with even more unique mechanisms to open the doors. You may want to find an industrial mechanic with special knowledge of hydralics and pneumatics to figure this out.

These kindred spirits will be glad to help you: http://www.bricklin.org/

I hope you aren’t posting from inside the inescapable car on your cellphone. If you are, I hope you’re not moving.

There is another Bricklin post in “The Show”. See http://community.cartalk.com/posts/list/2163809.page

Here is a door “air controller” on ebay.
