  1. I would not recommend it....... You should just take the money and invest it in a high yielding money market account i.e. Citibank e-savings @ 6% APR and wait for the issues that may or may not come. Either way, at the end of the 2 years you may have used some or all of it on a repair or have extra money for a downpayment on a Porsche. I made the mistake of buying a 3rd party warranty from AA Autowarranty for approx $2500 and the insurance provider went bankrupt and I was SOL. There is a class action lawsuit but I'm sure that i wll get about $10 bucks back after the lawyers are done with their fees. Fortunately, Fred Lavery Porsche in Birmingham, MI repaired my RMS leak in good faith since it was the second time it was repaired for the same issue .
  2. Thanks Loren for the quick reply. How do you get access to the microswitch? I checked on the part at the dealer: $45USD It will take 3 days to arrive.
  3. Sorry guys if this is not a new topic but I could not find it in the forum but I tried. The detailed problem description is as follows: - When passenger door handle is opened (from either side), the window does not increment down as intended - Manual use of the window switch has to be performed to prevent glass banging on cabrio trim when closing pass door - Window motor is functional and will even stop at partial closed condition when door is opened (latched) Other pertinent info: - Was recently in body shop for unrelated damage to front fascia by GIANT Racoon - When cabrio switch is used all window operations appears normal during cabrio retraction - Noticed wet carpet on pass side rear footwell (may be related if Body Control module in vicinity) - plan to clear water path at rear wheel well as recommended from other posting :renntech: - Already disconnected battery and reconnected to attempt to "hard-reset" any electronic control unit - Ordered Durametric and will try to acquire any DTCs if arrives by this weekend - When I pull on door handle, I hear a switch engage but no movement of the window My questions are: - What detects that the door is being opened that initiates the window retraction, where is it? - What do I need to do to have access to this sensor to inspect and/or replace? - Where is the Body control module that takes this input? Or is the there a Smart Module in the door that communicates to a body security module via CAN messages? - Or am I SOL and need to take it to the dealer for $125/hr to troubleshoot? I'm new so please take it easy on me......
