I'm trying to remove the heater control on my 2002 986, so I can replace the malfunctioning LCD. Since the failure of these older LCDs (the radio has the same issues) is such a common problem, I thought there might be a tutorial here, to review, before I go prying away at the dash. But I haven't been able to find one by doing a simple "Heater Control Removal" search. Can anyone enlighten me with a link or the smoothest removal procedure? Spring is almost here, so I need to fix this for driving! Also looking for the easiest way to replace the partly defective display on the Becker Radio LCD. The 2002 has the security radio with the plug-in display, so at least this is easy to remove. Wondering if anyone has had a successful repair done on their Becker radio display, for less than an arm and a leg? Thanks!
Hi, i apologise for being a lurker and not really ever posting since i joined; but i have a serious issue right now :^( ive been DIYing most stuff for my car - pioneer nav - footwell lighting - seatbelt replacement - o2 sensor replacement etc etc. but this has me absolutely stumped. a few weeks ago the interior trim / lining of the sun roof came off while the sun roof was open. it basically got stuck above the headliner in the car; so after i closed the sunroof, i wasnt able to ever open it fully again. i tried to tackle this problem today and one problem led to another and this whole sunroof thing has me so frustrated. Basically where it stands now is; ive removed the entire ceiling of the car - center consol, headliner, sunroof, sunroof interior trim, motor, rails.. EVERYTHING, the reason for this was because after i unscrewed the sunroof pannel and removed it, the sunroof rails were not doing anything when i pressed buttons. i though there was something stuck in the tracks at first, but couldnt find anything. then i took out the motor to see wht was up and realized that the close button doesnt work but the vent button and the sunroof forward button do. they only turn the gears a few rotations before stopping. obviously because my roof is in the most extended positon (open) the motor only clicks and doesnt do anything when i press buttons; so i removed the motor to find that it can only rotate in one direction. what do i do??? i think its the **** programed circuit (the one with the NEC chip on it) thats got the problem. Any way to reset it; or to let the circuit know that the sunroof is already in the vent position and it needs to stop trying to make it vent more? p.s i broke the mechanism that lets me manually crank the sunroof lol. so thats not an option. ahhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!! any help is appreciated, or even a service manual that tells me how the hell i re-build the sunroof. p.p.s my possible diagnostics: something stuck in tracks the computer that tells the sunroof what to do is wonky the close button is broken motor for some reason only turns one way pleaase help with solutions, or a service manual to show me what to do :(
Can anyone tell me how to remove the headlight switch on my 2005 CTT. I read you push in and turn counter clockwise, and it pops out. That does not seem to work. Any thoughts.
Hi all Finally decided to do the clutch. Raised the back of the car and removed plastic covers - all good so far. Then tried to remove the sway bar to fit an engine support brace. The bolts holding the sway bar bushes to the subframe all eventually sheared off - even with WD40, tapping with a hammer and heat. It's really frustrating to hit this kind of problem on step 1 of the process! So now I think the only solution is to remove the subframes and get them to a machine shop to have the bolts drilled out. The manual I have doesn't cover subframe removal. Is there anything to watch out for or can I just undo all the bolts? Any thoughts or guidance much appreciated. Thanks Andy
