When you pop it out, can you access the metal on the inside of that little strip there right towards the door handle? ...kinda between those two little arrows from the exploded part of the diagram in the bottom image, lower circle on the left - image 3...or where the wedge is placed in image 1 on the upper image. kinda looks like it would just be the metal lip right there, but not sure...anybody that has taken them out?
Thank you very much!!!
Holy Cow!!! that kicks ***. Original clutch!?! thats amazing, mine was a 1 owner and he had burnt out the clutch in under 25k miles...and honestly i could see that as being the easiest thing to go. Coming from an e46 M3 that just revved like crazy, i definitely bounced the rev limiter the first few times romping on the car. ...no valve job or nothin at almost 200k miles?
guys, i saw an earlier post regarding the same topic, but my issue is just slightly different so hoping someone can help. I have a really small dent right in front of the passenger side intake on my 01 TT. It was from trying to load something in the car, it touched right there and made a small dent - frustrating that the metal is so flimsy right there, but whatever...i was an idiot too. it seriously looks like you could just push it back out or that a PDR guy could fix it easily. What im wondering is first - how hard is it to get that vent insert out? i know they make aftermarket CF inserts, so i assume that isnt that tough? can anyone point me to a link? Second, how feasible is it to be able to push the little indentation out? TIA.
You should definitely be able to get a great one for that price. I have an 01 with 47k on it. its a wonderful car in every way possible. It has a ton of porsche exclusive shop options and i may be letting it go for the mid 50k range. so under 60k should be an easy target.
You do not have to remove the dash to replace those pieces. The defroster pieces are know to break the plastic clips when they are replaced. I think the sun causes the plastic to become brittle there. It is best to buy a few spares before doing the replacement. Awesome, thanks guys. is there an exploded diagram thing around by any chance? i saw a great one here for the removal of the side vents...is there such a monster for getting the defroster piece out? and based on having spares? i assume you mean these plastic clips are not attached to the leather surround piece and i can score extras vs. actually having extra leather surrounds laying around :-)?
I've seen some really good dash removal posts on here so i thought it would be a good place to ask... does anyone know if its possible to remove the dashboard lining piece - like that goes up next to the windshield and has the defroster vents in it (pic from carnewal below - without taking out the dash? TIA
