Glad to hear that. I was one the guys who had the idea to try pieces of toothpicks, and it'* still working fine on my '93 (knock on wood, get it?)
The next problem you may have with the radio, though, if you use the volume controls on the front of the radio, is that the spring mechanism(*) inside the volume **** may fail. It'* failed in both of my bonnies. Oddly enough, the one on my '92 just broke about a week ago, and I was surprised to see that the UP and DOWN switches both broke at the same time. One mintue they worked, the next minute there was no spring tension and they didn't work. When the one on my '93 broke, only the volume DOWN switch spring broke but the volume UP spring and switch still worked.
I've looked at electronics parts stores and in electronics parts catalogs, but haven't found replacements for the volume control *****. Best bet is probably one from a junk yard, but chances would be good that that one may develop the same problem too.
One of these days I'm going to take the radio apart and disassemble the volume control switch **** and see if there'* any creative way to fix it. I once took apart the one in my '93 but decided not to try to disassemble the volume **** because it'* not designed to be serviced; instead, I swapped the broken volume **** with the working station tuning **** and wired an external momentary contact switch to allow functionality of the broken part of the broken ****.
Lately I've been thinking about maybe replacing the radios with used ones from the newer bonnies, but I read about the wiring mods involved, etc., and it deterred me from that idea (at least for now).
