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.

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 …

Ok, very dumb question, but I can't see where the return spring mounts on my 87 brake pedal. I can't find a good picture of one, despite a lot of searching. It looks like the early pedal has a hole for the spring. Possibly the late pedal does as well, but not on mine, unless it got wiped out when I drilled the hole for the clevis. Thanks,

No pictures , but I have found that needle nose vise grips work wonders to get them back in place.

Where abouts is the hole? I may have to take it out and drill one, dammit! Not looking forward to this. Evil or Very Mad

If anyone can measure from the top of a pedal to where the hole is, please let me know. My memory has the spring just wrapped around the brake pedal, but I can't find a picture of one anywhere, and the Porsche manual is of no help. Thanks in advance, I want to wrap this up this week, I have a few days off to work on this at the end of the week.

After a lot of cursing, and taking out the dash (got a nice leather dash to install) which gave me more head room I finally got that damn spring on. I never want to do this one again!
