    General module rebuild

    Hi from Spain!

    I am looking for somebody who can change capacitors from my '90 e31 general module. Anybody knows?

    It is a fairly simple repair for someone who knows how to work on circuit boards. If you can remove the general module, you can take it to a local electronics repair facility and ask them to replace the capacitors. I would go somewhere that repairs audio equipment and televisions not a place that fixes phones. A good shop will have the capacitors you need in stock. Just tell them you want high temperature capacitors.

    juanko -- it would be best for you to send "EEDegreeToDrive" a private message (PM) and coordinate with him that way. You can link to him from post #5 in this thread.

    Juan-- Your module is back in the mail.. Apparently, shipping to Puerto Rico is exactly the same as shipping to any other US territory

    ...And a big thank you to Sniff38 and all the other folks that point everyone in my direction for their GM repairs. I've probably done close to 100 of these modules by now! Thanks again!
