Source of info in Workshop Manuals?

Recommended Posts

I'm still learning my way around this site, so pardon any duplication of requests until I find where best to post them.

I'm wanting to replace my 07 Targa sunshade with the 08 version, which is denser (thus letting in less sun). Is there anywhere on this site that I can find info on what is involved to remove/replace the sunshade, such as Workshop manuals? Or, has anyone worked on a 996 or 997 sunshade that could tell me if I'm crazy to even consider doing it myself?

:rolleyes: Ken's question is only regarding different year 997 Targas.

Ken here. You're right, the sunshade for the 2008 Targa now supersedes the one used on the 2007 Targa (both 997 models). The part number for the 2007 Targa started with "996-" . The new part number that supersedes this starts with "997-". It therefore appears that the sunshade used in the 2007 Targa is the same as the one used in the earlier 996 Targa.

I appreciate the clarification of chassis types, although I don't think they come into play here. But various people had told me that the Targas were built on cab chassis. It now appears that only the 996 Targas were made that way, and that the 997 Targas are based on a C4S chassis. This may explain why the 997 Targa weighs less than a C2S cab. Now, if I could just find a set of lowering springs for it. Most manufacturers don't know enough about the Targa to know whether their springs will work or not. I would think springs for a C4S should work given their apparent common chassis design.
