Hello fellow owners,

I have been the proud (and with continued research, seemingly lucky) owner of a 99 996 cab. I have a few questions that maybe the more expierenced owners can help me with.

1. any way to clear up the rear (plastic) window in the soft top? I have some crease marks and general foggy looking spots.

2. is there any alternate coolant to the $45 per gallon Porsche coolant? can i use any phosphate free coolant? any recommendations?

3. i am changing my coolant tank ( i hear you all laughing) any advice...there is a great piece in the DYI section but will take any other tips.

4. what are the clear purple plastic covers on either side of the interior light? the drivers side always falls off and i am wondering if i can put a drop of glue on it or will i need to access it ever?

5. i have no reverse lights..i checked the fuse and its good. where do i start? Again in the DYI there was a small piece talking about a switch on the trans...sound right?

So far i have only come across small, what i would call normal repairs, but i love the car.

Thanks in advance,

Erik

1. Plexus (sp?) is good I hear.

2. Do a search here for coolant - this has been discussed many many times.

3. Read through the whole DIY thread for additional tips and tricks.

4. Those would be the lenses/filters for the motion sensors for your alarm. Maybe try a new one and see if it fits tighter.

5. Probably the reverse light switch. This is mounted high the transmission. Do a search replacement has been covered here too.

Thanks for the advice Loren. I have a feeling that this site is going to be a savior for me. It really seems like people know what they are talking about and explanations are in great detail.

I bought the cleaner for the rear window from the dealer and it worked GREAT!! get painters tape and cover the top fabric as to not get any on the top it self. DO NOT PRESS HARD as you could cause the plastic window to seperate from the top itself if you flex it to much. I rigged a piece of doubled up cardboard against the inside to prevent the flexing.
