Personally I would wait for a hood motor to fail, as the alleged hood opening when driving, has never happened, but only could, although the other hood latch should hold it, unless your doing 171 mph.

Anyway the point, from talking with two owners who had the new motors fitted with this safety recall, ( sorry service upgrade) have had them fail within a couple of years, and new ones to last you another couple of years are around a grand (the old over engineered ones are no longer made)

Luckily when they sent me the recall letter many years back, I did not get the recall done and after hearing how quickly the replacements fail, ill be in no hurry to have mine done, unless I can keep the motors they take out (they wont, I checked)
Anyway, just my two pence worth, regards

Kevin, as said above, wait for the motors to go, but get the loom done sooner rather than later. If your's is anything like mine after 16 years of heat in that engine bay, it had no insulation on large parts of the main loom near the alternator. Massive fire risk, so assuming they can get the loom (my local OPC Colchester got it next day) get them to do it.

Thanks for the advice guys. Parts are now in and car booked in for tomorrow. I will have a chat with them about the hood motors..they work fine so maybe worth leaving alone if the new ones are not as good

Cheers Thumb

This makes sense, but a word of caution....

FWIW last Saturday, when I attended the Cabrio inspection, I was told that I had no outstanding recalls Smile The service manager said this was a good thing as another owner had to pay £1200 to have his motors replaced.

So it seems that there might be a time element to these recalls after all. Some might not be lucky a year or so down the line, should they choose not to have the recall done now.

bye

Mines going in on Wednesday for its loom replacement etc. Took less than 24hrs for them(byfleet) to call me and arrange a date for me to drop it off for the repair. Very happy!

This one is NOT a service campaign but a full safety recall controlled by VOSA and therefore does not run out of time (royd999).

I know of another 993 that had to weight 3months for the replacement parts and they would not have arrived any sooner if it was going to be a cash job

It's not just Byfleet that can check for recalls, whilst they were the first to advertise the fact any dealer can check on PPN (porsche Partner network) or WWS (worldwide Warranty System) and would be in their interest to do so for commercial reasons.

Booked mine in for "Replacement of horn with filter relay" recall next Friday with Leeds OPC - does anyone know what this entails as the they've asked for the car for two days ?? Sorry if I'm being thick but I'm assuming this is not the well documented wiring loom recall ??

That's surprising, 1 hr max Job. The wiring loom job starts at 4.5 hours depending on year and model.

Could you please elaborate a bit more on the horn & filter relay recall, ive got two 993s and have never heard of it, but would obviously like to get it done if it affects them

Many thanks

just contact any dealership and give them you VIN no and see if it requires any recalls, the relay recall did not apply to all 993's

Quite. My late '95 (but pre-vario) cab was checked by the OPC and only the wiring loom and hood motors applied.

So I trundled into Leeds OPC for my recall yesterday, horn and filter relay thingy, dropped the car off 10am, got the call at 2.30pm all done. I'm none the wiser what was involved as the very pleasant young lady on service didn't over elaborate but clearly it wasn't too much of a job given the time frame involved.

Anyhow free coffee, biscuits, a courtesy boxster for half a day and no bill at the of it made for a reasonable experience.

Just to let everyone know, they are still doing the recall test, mine was all good but they did mention they are doing free winter checks if your in the area

'We are doing free Winter Health Checks through December, so if you would like to call Tim or David in our Service Dept, they would be happy to book you in.'

Just read this on the forum. My 1995 993 is in having its engine loom done now! Can't believe that previous main dealers who had serviced it at the time of the recall hadn't done it! It's something I didn't even know about - being someone who lacks in depth knowledge of everything 993.
