For the benefit of 944Hybrids users there are two search functions available for you to use.
The purpose of this sticky is to explain the "Advanced Search" function because it is much more powerful and is the best choice when researching information.

When you log on to the site a list of options is shown in a line at the top of the page. One option is labelled "Search", use this option (NOT the search box lower down on the right).

After you click on the upper search option, a drop down box appears. At the bottom of this box is a radio button marked "Advanced …

Removing Side mirrors

Post  cfgioja on Tue Feb 16, 2010 12:13 am

Ok, I am in the process of swapping parts from the part car to the turbo body.

I unbolted the Side mirrors from the doors but I can not seem to find a place to disconnect the wires from the mirrors that run through the door.

Anyone know how to disaasemble them or to disconnect the wirring. I am trying not to cut them if possible.

Let me get this straight. You are trying to swap out the mirrors and not the mirror bodies? So, youre trying to get the glass and motor assembly out of the mirror bodies?

Should be a white barrel shaped connector with 5 wires in it that the wires lead to from the mirror. If you find this connector, you have to run to radioshack and buy a molex pin extractor tool to remove the wires from the connector. The tool looks like a syringe but when you push on the plunger, a pin is pushed through the end extracting the connector.

If theres no molex connector at all.....get out the wire cutters. Mad

Yeah I know... Leave it to the noob to bring back a dead post.

Anyway, just cut the wires. It is 100 times easier than removing the mirror, motor, rubber trim/frame, drawing a wiring diagram (so you don't forget where the wires go) and de-pinning the connector. After cutting the wires, do yourself a favor and add a couple of bullet or spade connectors with dielectric grease for the next time you have to remove the mirrors.

968 Mirrors on a 944

Post  fliermike45 on Tue May 01, 2012 8:04 pm

FYI I fitted 968 mirrors on my 944, the mount is identical but wiring is different, easily figured out with a meter.

all you do is depin the wires from the plug .
don't just cut them like many do is it leads to trouble later on .
about 60% of the business in my body shop were porsches we would see cut wires all the time from people that just could not get how to do the job right .
you can make the job quick and ez of you buy the porsche pin tool they are about 30 dollars and will push the pins out real ez . the generic pin extractor tools don't tend to work on the porsche pins
you will have to play around with them to get the pins out .
you see porsche put the wire connectors down at the base of the A-pillers to keep them out of the weather . when it rains the water runs down the out side of the window glass and then dripps on the crap inside the door like the mirror wiring over time the water will ruin the connectors you put there if you just cut them and crimp new connectors on .
the porsche engineers put the plugs there for a reason .
