HOW TO DO AN ADVANCED SEARCH.

Mon Jul 08, 2013 3:56 pm by Admin


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 …

Little accident [sigh]

Post  Porch on Wed Apr 07, 2010 9:35 pm

All i can say is..."of course". Sad
Was sitting in a turn lane and waiting for traffic to clear. It did, so i put it in first and *almost* had the clutch out when the guy behind me drove straight into the back of my car (from a stop). He forgot there was someone in front of him. [sigh]

Think it's that bad? The insurance guy is coming to look at it in a day or two, but i'm wondering if i can just take the money and do the work myself (putting the rest of the money towards painting the whole car), or whether replacing this panel is a lot of work that only a body shop should do.

Don't you love all those people that drive with so much care? Evil or Very Mad Give your car a pat for me. Sorry for the bad luck.

Looks like it was a truck, considering where the the impact was.

That sucks but thats not really bad at all. That whole rear panel is replaceable by drilling out the spot welds. Regardless of how you do it, it shouldnt take too long....especially if you go with a pro.

It depends on how the insurance agency will work the deal. When I got hit the other week they sent gave me a check for the damage. Some insurance agencys want you to go to a few different body shops and get estimates and then They will make you go to one of those.

If you get a check straight from them, you can do what ever you want to do with it. They don't have to know. If you buy parts off of others or are given parts, then that save money just dont tell the insurance thats what you are going to do or they will change the amount they are giving you.

As far as how hard it would be. That I am not sure, I have not tried changing the back end out.

@modenas--give me a... tail light? Do you have a good clean one with no cracks? I'd love to grab it off you! I don't mind paying a fair price for it, either. If anyone has a parts car for the back panel i might be interested in that, too!

Yep, it was a truck, a little Mazda B2500. I think i'm going to replace the back panel myself and possibly enlist a few friends for help. My insurance co is sending an adjuster in the next few days to give me a quote for the repairs.

In the end it's not a big deal, but the weather was just starting to get nice out and i was really looking forward to driving her around a lot more. Now i guess it's back to driving my Cherokee :/

There should be 1 rear panel worth using on one of my parts cars It is just a matter of removing it, which won't be too fun. Where are you?

I'm in NM, near Santa Fe. I actually have a line on a rear panel, but i need to see what insurance is doing first. I'll keep you in mind, though!
