Thank you Loren for the help, not what I wanted to hear but it is what I suspected. Does anyone have an old wiring harness lying around and want to sell the connectors I need? Or have access to a local salvage yard that may have a series of this model years cars there to pick apart? Will compensate you for your time of course.
So the PO had somehow butchered up the steering wheel, airbag and clock-spring, I need to replace all of these items. What I really need to start is the 2, 2 wire plugs that connect to the clock-spring. One would control the horn and the other would be for the airbag I suspect. The red connector would be for the horn and the yellow would be for the airbag I presume, which has resistors tied to them to keep the airbag light off. Are these serviced by Porsche parts or am I salvage yard bound and searching? 99 911 manual trans 4 spoke wheel TIA!
Thanks everyone. I locked my doors last night and found that the fuel door is locked. I will look for the manual pull cable tonight. Now to adjust the door itself so it sits flush with the body lines, I think it is missing a grommet or a rubber bumper. I am learning something new daily about this car. I will be posting and researching more issues in the future.
ahhhh ha, OK this makes sense now. I will check out the feature tonight. Thanks so much everyone👍
ok thanks for the responses but I am somewhat confused still. So when the car doors are unlocked, the fuel door will be "unlocked" or be able to be opened? Mine is able to be opened now and the door does not sit flush( I think there is a grommet or bumper missing). I have never locked the car up and tried the fuel door. I can open up the F.F. door and see some sort of release cable. Also I looked for a search feature and could not find, new to the site obviously☺
mjbiegs posted a topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Hi all- I was looking for info on opening the fuel filler door. Just received this car(99 911) and it has no owners manual of course and I want to know how to release the cable. Is there a pull cable in the front trunk area? thanks
