Hardtop and softop rattles


Recommended Posts

Bought a 99 Carrera Cabrio that has a rattle where the hardtop rear spinlocks attached to chassi, it´s very anoying, is there something I can do to eliminate this?

With the softop I have a rattle on the center lock, where the softop attached to the windshield. I heard there are some TBS for eliminating these bugs, can anyone provide me the link for it, I really love this car but those rattles are driving me mad. Tanks in advance.

The latch and receiver for hardtop was redesigned in 2003. The twist locking pin mechanism was replaced with a breech screw assembly. There is a retrofit kit available from Porsche, P/N 000.043.300.46

That will tighten down the back. In the front, the header gasket needs to be kept clean and lubricated to keep it from creaking, etc.

What would you suggest lubricating the front seal with?

I just use silicon lubricant spray. I spray some on a rag, and then wipe down and clean the header gasket with it.
