  1. Could somebody advise the part numbers for the engine compartment temperature sensor and the grommet that goes with it? I am referring to the sensor that is located on the top, right side of the engine. This sensor turns on the fan located on the engine compartment lid. Thanks
  2. What lubricant should be used for the door lock and the ignition lock cylinder? Thanks
  3. Actually I had already purchased an OEM Porsche window regulator. I was not sure if having it installed or not, because the existing window regulator had been working reasonably well recently. But the glass was not dropping, when opening the door, and considering that the regulator lasted 20 years, I decided to have it replaced. The job was done by an independent Porsche mechanic today and everything is fine. Also the door lock was repaired. It was my intention to do the lock myself, but it proved to be too much of a job for me. Thanks for all the advice provided.
  4. Thanks for the link to the detailed door latch replacement procedure. I am going through the procedure right now.
  5. Thanks for your confirmation. I was wondering if there is a way of re-tensioning the cable without replacing the all thing. Also, I am still a little surprised about the big reduction in the scratching noise when operating the window. I believe that knowing what is causing the scratching noise can help deciding whether replacing the window regulator (assuming that the cable can be re-tensioned).
  6. The door key turns freely without locking/unlocking. I am trying to get the door latch mechanism out, but I could not separate the handle/handle case assembly from the latch mechanism.
  7. I cannot try this now, because I am working on the door lock. I'll try as soon as I can. Many thanks for your suggestion!
  8. The driver side window regulator in my car started making a loud scratchy noise about 2 or 3 years ago. I tried to minimize its use, fearing that it was going to fail, but eventually it got better and right now the scratching noise, while still there, is almost imperceptible. The window, however, does not lower automatically ¼” or ½” , whatever it is supposed to do, when I open the door. I am not sure if this is an issue related to the window regulator or to a failed microswitch. I have bought a Porsche OEM window regulator, but I wouldn’t go to the trouble of getting it installed, unless I am sure that the window regulator currently in the car is bad. Any suggestions on how to proceed? Thanks
  9. Thanks to All. Is there a specific torque to put the bolts back?. Is Loctite require?
  10. Note: I call ‘back of the door’ the part of the door that is facing backwards, not the back portion of the door panel On the back of the door there are 2 black ‘bolts’ that secure the lock to the door. They seem to be designed for a Torx bit, but none of my Torx bits seem to fit properly. What is the correct tool for removing those bolts and where can it be purchased? Thanks
  11. Thanks for the information. These tools and applications could be useful also for my other car.
  12. Does a more complete list of the "AC diagnostics" exist? In particular, I am interested in the engine compartment temperature reading, but other parameters could also be useful. Thanks
