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.

Looks great, congrats. Are you running OBDI or OBDII?

Are the rear coil overs in addition to the torsion bars?

Yes. They are 150# springs and really cut down on the squat under power.

Sorted my over heating issue. In the end though it was just a stuck thermostat.

As you all know the 944 and 968 cabriolet have an electric pop mechanism for the trunk. Porsche got their head out of their butt with the 968 and made an emergency release for if/when the electric system fails. Unfortunately for us 944's do not have this, however this is what I did. Maybe this will help some of you do make an emergency release.

Remove the latch.

Remove the round pull out of it's holder. As you can see it has a hole through it, if it doesn't go through drill it out the rest of the way. I had 2 latches, the original 90 had a hole through it, the 89 did not.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

I ran 18 gauge wire through the hole, put a round crimp on connector on the end and put the round pull thing back on it tight (it acts as a pinch).

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Routed the wire like the next coupel wires.

You'll need to use a fish to get the wire through the reinforcements.

Proof of concept.
