Okay this is REALLY specific. The adjustable tension cable on the drivers side of my cabriolet disconnected at the top where it threads (8mm) into the top frame, not at the bottom where it snaps onto the ball. The is a larger diameter (10mm?) clean smooth painted hole where the cable needs to thread in, which leads to the presumption that there was a nut on the back side? Searched all over including removing driver's side rear 'door' panel and fishing around with a magnet but no loose nut found. Looks like getting to back side of this frame casting would entail a major disassembly of the cabriolet top frame? Also, what does this clip that goes over hydraulic cylinder do? Right side clips is in place about halfway down length of cylinder. Left side clip was down around the base of the shaft. Replacing it where there appears to be a shiny spot looks like it would interfere with the cabriolet top potentiometer arm. Right cable threaded into frame at top Right cable threaded into frame at top Missing cable location Smooth clean painted hole in top frame where 8mm cable end is supposed to thread in Left cable Left upper cable end with 8mm thread Clip question
(edited 17/May/2012 - changed from question to the procedure I followed) Hi Guys, In case you're ever in the same situation, below is the procedure I used for re-starting my 996 3.4L TIP following about 3 months elapsed of dashboard work where all of the following items were removed and now re-installed with the battery disconnected for the whole 3mths. Radio A/C Control Passenger Airbag Drivers Airbag Steering Wheel / Clock Spring Combination Switch Instrument Pod I broke the re-start into the following 3 steps which I've detailed below: Checks prior to starting engine Checks at engine start Checks post engine start You will need a Durametric code reader or similar for this procedure. 1. Checks prior to engine start Pre-condition - everything back together and battery fully charged and connected. Key at Accessory Position: Radio - enter the security code / test all functions Key at "ON" Position Perform DME adaption per workshop manual (WSM) procedure Passenger Airbag - read error codes/clear codes Drivers Airbag - read error codes/clear codes Steering Wheel - check horn operation Combination Switch - test turn signals, wipers Instrument Pod - test lamps and dial functions with Durametric Re-teach Power Window Stop Positions Re-teach Sunroof Stop Positions Set clock Read out all error codes from all controls units and clear codes Check for instrument warning lamps remaining on that shouldn't be 2. Checks at Engine Start Start Car: Remove the fuel pump fuse and crank the engine - to pre-circulate oil (I did 2 x 10 sec bursts with 20seconds in-between) Reinstall fuel pump fuse Start engine Check for instrument warning lamps remaining on that shouldn't be (I had only the spoiler and seat belt lamps remain on which is fine) Allow to idle for 5-10mins to warm engine and complete DME adaptation 3. Checks post Engine Start (Driving) Check spoiler light goes out once moving. Perform tiptronic adaptation per WSM procedure Steering Wheel / Clock Spring - check horn, and tip switch operation A/C Control - test all functions - cool and hot Combination Switch - test OBC and Cruise Check for any post driving error codes Luckily for me there were no problems and I'm now enjoying the driving once again. Thanks
