  1. The antenna amplifier is located behind the right A-pillar trim. The single white wire in the left A-pillar is the remote control antenna and is connected on the other end of the wire, this antenna wire must also have a specific lenght in relation to the transmission frequency. Hope it helps.
  2. Yes you should, have the car checked at an official Porsche Center, on the basis of their multi-points check list, before purchase.
  3. The throttle body will certainly require an intensive cleaning, the MAF sensor the same or better replaced to be sure.
  4. Are you sure it's oil? The item indicated is a water circuit cover, so it could be cooling water/anti freeze mix, this also feels greasy.
  5. Close the convertible top and lock with the handle, with the doors cosed, the side windows should now copletely up and closed. O pen the doors, tailgate front and rear, glove box, fuel filler door and centerconsole. Close the locks on doors, both bootlids, centerconsole and glove box using a screwdriver or similar ( attention, the doors and trunk locks must click twice to be secured, glovebox and centerconsole once ) close the car with the remote. All lights should now be off and the fuel filler locking pin be extended approx 1,5 cm. If all this turn out to be OK, check whether the fixation cage of the original radio is connected to the anti-theft wire of the original radio.
  6. Most likely the control boxes have returned to factory settings after the work which has been carried out. Run the "Vehicle handover" program using a PIWIS tool and you should be fine.
  7. Driving wind can also make such a noise, tape the seems from the front trunk to the other body parts with duck tape, the seals around the front windshield, the seams from the convertible top to the windshield(s) etc., do test drives to locate the noise. Of course, it would be easier to use an ultrasonic device if possible.
  8. In/next to the rear left wheel arch under the car are electrical connectors, the wiring of which controls the fuel pumps, this connectors can be deformed by heat influense and strange situations can occure. If so, connectors and burnt wiring must be replaced.
  9. Thanks for the follow up, agree with you, nothing beats original on a 944.
  10. If the key fits in the lock cylinder and you can turn both left and right, but it feels loose, without any resistance than the circled part in the pic. is probably broken or badly replaced after a previous intervention.
  11. You can have the current starter overhauled at a Bosch center, spare parts are still availlable. This is a cheaper solution and remains original, collectors of classic cars do this all of the time.
  12. Look for corrosion inside the connectors on the "A" pillars, these are sensitive areas for corrosion.
  13. There are different order numbers for a 986 depending on motorization and whether or not sport suspension, this will be the diameter of the anti roll bar. The 987 has completely different order numbers starting with 987-***-*** and also motorization, sport and/or active suspension. I don't know if this is interchangeable.
  14. Possible, a lot depends on the used charger type, there are chargers that only charge and others that first partially discharge the battery and only than start the charging cyclus. What you can do is start by closing the car with the remote and depending on whether it is a daily driver or not, use the car every two or three days. You will than notice that the battery has enough power or not, i think you are needlessly concerned.
