Thanks for the advice. I finally got around to doing this myself. It took much longer than expected. Removing all the trim was very tricky. I ended up needing to replace several screws and modified a screw driver to fit over the slotted nuts. I removed the glass using guitar strings. I then spent hours cleaning the frame of adhesive, sanding and repainting. A friend and I reinstalled the frame, applied 3M windshield adhesive and set the glass in place. After letting the glass set up, I reinstalled the trim. The last thing was to reattach the shocks. The glass seperated within days of reattaching the shocks. bummer. I'll be redoing this when it warms up (I hear the glass is less likely to break when it's warm). I think my problem was that I tried to center the glass in the frame rather than moving it as far forward as possilbe. The top part of the frame has the least surface area and it seems to make sense to use all of it you can.
I live in Winston-Salem and have used the Porsche Dealer in Greensboro (Foriegn Cars International) and Sneed's Speed Shop. I have been pleased with the service at both. I used the dealer to sort out some AC issues and they got it right the first time. I could spend hours in their showroom looking at all the cars. I use Sneed's for basic maintenance and HPDE inspection and preparation. Chris and Kenneth Sneed and everyone at the shop are great to talk to and work with.
swirvin. Your problem may be different than mine, but my oil pressure gauge works intermittently. I have a 1986 944 Turbo. I replaced the sending unit and had the gauge cluster rebuilt by a VDO dealer (other issues than just the oil pressure gauge). The problem has not been corrected but the next step to check the wiring. I'd recommend starting with the sending unit $30 - 50 part and 1 - 2 hour labor, then the wiring. I return when I have fixed my problem. patton.
drraulduke Were you able to correct the problem yourself? If so, do you have any suggestions. I am having the same problem. I checked the local auto glass shop and they wanted $300 labor with no guarantee on the glass. Thanks. Patton.
