Finally had my new ducted fog lights installed. Sylwrster @ Enigma created a clever side light and fog light combined in the single aperture using LEDs. Now the fog light isn't a dreadful weak yellow colour!

One of those hand painted Porsche crests in black and grey, along with new retaining nuts and rubber seal. Also a mobil 1 sticker for the engine blower. All essentials of course Smile

I have had the car for approx. 4 months now and gradually you notice little odds and sods missing. Obviously as time has went by bits of trim etc have been removed and possibly broke, or simply not refitted at all.
Things I have replaced, plastic nut covers under spoiler, plastic turn screws above rear centre reflector, under tray hanging bracket and fastener (more than £45) ultra sonic alarm microphone bracket, replaced velcro fittings in boot with H/D press studs (looks so much tidier) various cup washers located in the cabin, either scratched or cracked and the festoon bulb in glovebox (unusual size-31 mm) I am yet to check whether as a previous post mentioned the bulb if any, in the ashtray. I am presently awaiting for a rubber seal plug and a speed nut fastener located under the bonnet.
I also replaced the clear indicators with as new amber ones, correct for the car, a bargain of eBay (£15.50 the seller must have been gutted).

Good work Allen - it never stops, but that's part of the fun in owning these cars, and you don't have to do it all at once either, if at all Thumb

I'm particularly interested in the H/D press stud thing you mentioned for the front boot carpet. I've not heard of this one - can you elaborate?

PostPosted: Sat Oct 07, 2017 1:50 pm    Post subject: Boot liner Reply with quote

Andy, hope this explains the technique and what you need. The boot liner looks loose and whenever you put anything in the front the velcro would just come away and the liner sag. (OK many I hear say, who puts anything in the front?…I do)
The boot liner has three stud fasteners already, holding the back in so firstly loosen those and remove the liner, then remove the 4 hex head self tappers either side that hold the small metal plate with the velcro discs. You then need to punch out the soft rivet and scrap the discs. Replace these discs with the appropriate half of the stud fastener. The kits come with all the necessary pieces, I got a set of 10 (15mm) H/D from eBay for £4. You can obtain kits from high street retail outlets, they will have the necessary punches etc I already had the punches so only needed the fasteners. Refit the plates with the self tapper hex head screws.
Before you refit the liner and mark off where the new fasteners will match up, remove the stitching of the hook part of the velcro, it makes attaching the outer part of the fastener much easier, then rivet the outer part through the liner one by one (I found it easier doing one side at a time, rather than all at once) and that is it. The finished job looks so much better and now the liner stays in place always.
I also took on board the tip for inserting a piece of wire through the bead on the pocket, no sagging there now.

Small service and brake fluid change. No issues except windscreen washer jets have stopped working, although headlamp washers fine... Dont know

And rear tyres at the limit. Think I will buy full set and finally get a geo done.

Presumably the interior switches operate as per normal? If so, that's a really smart solution.

Funny you should mention headlight jets. My ones also did not work. Checked the fuse and all okay. Checked the relay and thought it was faulty.

I looked at Design911 and they wanted (hope you are sitting down) £192.54 for a replacement Surprised
http://www.design911.co.uk/fu/prod11078/Headlight-Washer-Relay-Porsche-993-99361811100/

You can get replacements from Bosch that fit different Porsche models. Part Number 1397328015.
Picked up a second hand on for a tenner on eBay. Around £30 new. Fitted this evening and now works like a dream.

Invaluable little gadget I found in a local garden center, every geriatric 911 owner should have one.
