jbp replied to jbp's topic in 997-1 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 2S, Carrera 4S)Thank you gentlemen - that's the reply I was expecting & dreading. I think it's the cables binding as opposed to the motor being defective as the symptom varies with temperature ie. the sunroof struggles more on a hot day (the kind of day on which one would want to use the sunroof). Has anyone out there tried spraying/flushing the exposed section of cable with WD40, silicone spray lube or similar? If so, how did that work out? A potential concern with trying to flush the cable in-situ is I might end up staining the headlining.
jbp replied to jbp's topic in 997-1 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 2S, Carrera 4S)Am I to infer from the silence that I do indeed need to remove the entire frame? Has anybody on this forum done this job on a 997? How much of a PITA is this job going to be - should I be leaving this job to a dealership? Any advice welcome.
The sunroof on my 2005 C2 S is struggling to open/close properly because (I think) the lubrication on the spiral cables is old and gummed up. I would like to remove the cables so that I can clean and re-lubricate them. Can anyone advise the easiest way to do this? I'm really hoping someone knows how to do this without having to remove the headlining and frame etc.
I have now replaced the part and the problem is fixed! Thanks again Loren for your help.
Thank you Loren, much appreciated. I've ordered a new sensor (£56) in anticipation that the unit is faulty,it should arrive next week and I'll fit it over the weekend. I'll report back on the outcome.
Just noticed a typo in my original message it's right hand drive not left hand drive...
Hi Loren - sorry, it's a 2006 C2s
jbp posted a topic in 997-1 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 2S, Carrera 4S)I have a dashboard error message showing a drivers side (right hand drive car) airbag fault and I'm trying to diagnose the origin of the faulty component / connection. I connected a durametric reader and the fault code was '8059 drivers front sensor no communication'. My best guess is that the accelerometer behind the front bumper (drivers side) could be at fault but I can't find much supporting information online. Has anyone got any info / experience they could share? Thanks Jason
