  1. Hi msand9898, Sorry I didn't see your reply. For whatever weird reason the notification email from renntech.org were automatically filtered by gmail and went to the "Promotions" (which I hardly open) instead of directly to inbox. Just happened to see it when I tried to clean up my mailbox. Anyway, that looks pretty serious break. Something mechanically (I suspect the clamshell) must blocking the movement of the side flap while it was trying to open/close hence broke the piece since the pressure from the thread turning has no where else to go. The first step
  2. Thanks Rabit & Wizard for responding. No I haven't found any replacement part yet. It is summer here (I live in Northern California) so I have the top open all the time currently. I'm still searching before giving up and bite the bullet (getting a new motor).

The next thing should happen you should hear a motor running on the back and the clam-shell to raise up. If you don't hear a motor running most likely either the motor bust
  4. Hi guys, Newbie to the forum here. I have a 2002 996 C2 Cab new to me and been enjoying it since I got it 2 years ago. Mostly trouble free until two weeks ago when the cab top started to acting up and then quit all together. I had to do the emergency manual procedure, after checking all the obvious stuff (i.e. fuses, relays, micro-switches all tested and works). I started taking the mechanism apart, checked, cleaned and lubed everything, put it back together, run the calibration (Durametric), things start to work again wonderfully (or so I thought). The clam-shell lid start
