Cab Window Replacement

Recommended Posts

I have a 2001 C4 Cab, and looks like the usual window delamination.

Its very small, located on the corner and perhaps 1" on each side of the corner.

Is it possible to stick this back together ?

If not, any recommendations for shops in the Bay Area (south bay prefered) who can fix or replace the window ?

Thanks

My 2000 c2 cab did the same thing. I went to a few auto upholstery shops and all said that this is a very common repair for them on Porsche cabs. One told me it could not be done and I had to get a new top, even though my top still looked brand new except for the poorly designed rear window. I received quotes from $400 - $850, so check around.

The shop that did mine, put in a new plastic window, heat glued it in, and put two rows of stitching around it. I think it almost looks better withthe stitching around the window.

any good auto upholstery shop should be able to do this job, or the other option is what a Porsche dealer will tell you is 1900 for a new top, and another 1000 to install! crazy, if your top is still in good shape!

The TSB on this issue contains very specific limits on what can be reglued by the dealer. It sounds like yours may be within these limits, so it might be worth a trip to the dealer.

If not, then some on the forum have reported success with finding a local shop to remove; stitch around; and reinstall the top.

I could not find such a shop, so went to a dealer recommended top shop which installed a GAHH top for $1900 total, top and labor.

Now, GAHH offers a top with a glass window, which seems to run about $500 more than mine.

Good luck.
