  1. Hi My 2003 996 C2 coupe o/s/f window has stopped working. Its stuck at the top, does not budge when locking / unlocking the car. I can hear a noise from inside the door when moving the window switch, seems louder when pressing the "up" button - bearing in mind its already up! Also since I have had the car (3 years) the sat nav has not worked for 80% of the time, its not reading any satellites! Any ponters/help etc would be great Kind regards Jon
  2. Bringing up this old topic again, how do you remove the trim to expose whats in the picture? Thanks in advance Jonathan

  7. Hi Me again with 996 C2 Man with PCM2 The car has had a new battery and front s/assys and since then the gps is not seeing any satellites, and the clock that takes is time from the gps is not working Have tried various fixes: disconnet battery 1-4-8 on sat nav taken out fuses left car outside etc and still no satellites being seen so thinking that the GPS antenna is bust, - could anything have been damaged when the battery was replaced? To check the antenna is best to start with the PCM2 end or up on the dashboard? My DIY skills are poor Any advice - help - suggestions would be great, Have to say that I am on a budget and cant afford dealer prices Thanks in advance, becoming obsessed with this
