Hi all...

I have recently gotten a set of replacement stalks for my 02 996 from Brian P of this forum, as one of the knobs broke off flush with the instrument binnacle.

I grabbed a set of new knobs from local Porsche Centre, so now armed with both the required items I want to install the new stalk.

I have searched and read up the various "how to remove the instrument clusters that are here and on Pelican's site, but cant see anything on how to actually replace the stalk in the cluster itself.

The removal of the cluster seems simple enough. Some screws, a few disconnects, a tab here and there and its out, but what then?

Anyone done this who can enlighten me before I pull my dash apart?

Tony

I've done this on my 996 and once you have the instument cluster off it's very easy to replace the stalks. Just a few screws in the instrument cluster on the back if I recall to take it further apart....and then you will be able to pull out the broken stalk and replace it. I think you will find that once you have the cluster off, you're pretty much home free.

I was hoping it would be something simple, but given that Porsche dotn sell the stalks, got me thinking there may have been something hidden there that required a million dollar tool or something.

Thanks

Nah its the clock knob stalk in the cluster itself, not a turn signal type on the steering wheel assembly.

      Hi - 2002 996: Scoured the lists but can't find this particular cluster problem anywhere.  In short, my salvage cluster shows a list of errors on start up but my original was fine....  Here's the details.  My current cluster shows an intermittent airbag failure warning on the led screen followed by the idiot light.  It usually occurs at start up, clears at the stalk and the idiot light remains on, but flickers on occasion.  My mechanic had ruled out everything he could related to the airbag warnings and since he didn't have a spare cluster, couldn't swap to test for that. I personally purchased a salvage cluster, removed the battery terminals, installed it and it came to life (I'm also having to buy replacement connector housings because mine disintegrated).  The problem is the info screen pretty much scrolled through a variety of issues like oil pressure feedback, temp feedback, fuel feedback, etc.  The oil pressure gage was also unresponsive.  I expected the odometer to be wrong, but didn't expect all the errors.  I also started the car and while it ran, it did run rough, sputtered a bit.  Do I have a bad salvaged cluster?  Does the cluster need to be programmed (beside the odometer)?

      I have a 1998, ROW C2. Over the past two weeks I have noticed that the fuel gauge is not reading correctly. The gauge will read high (3/4) but as I drive, the gauge will slowly drop to the correct reading over about 15 minutes. As the car sits, either at work for the day or in the garage overnight, when I go to start the car, the gauge will read over 1/4 tank higher than when I shut it off. Then, as I drive, it will drop to where I think it should be (or remember where it should be). I plan to pull the sender this weekend and check the connections, but I don't think it is the float as why would it rise while the car is turned off? Is it possible to troubleshoot the cluster gauge? I have a Durametric so I will attempt the fuel level calibration when I have pumped down the tank. Or am I just fooling myself and the gauge is bad?

      Hey Everyone, 
       
       
      So I own a 2004 Cayenne Turbo 2004. I don't drive the it much but today when I went to turn the car on the speedometer didn't power-up. So I turn the car off and restarted and still nothing. 
       
      Everything else works fine expect for the windshield wipers and speedometer. I'm thinking it's a fuse but I'm not sure. Has anyone else had these issues. Video and pictures coming soon! And tomorrow morning I'm testing the fuses to see if maybe it's loose or blown.

      I bought a beautiful 2000 Boxster S a couple of years ago, and now the leather has shrunk in two places and is on its way out in a couple of others.  I have purchased two cow hides, one black and one graphite gray and planned to do the door panels and dash myself, and have my local car upholstery guy do the seats.
       
      Has anyone ever recovered the door panels with new leather?
       
      It appears that the door panels are plastic welded or plastic riveted together.  I was hoping that the door panel could be disassembled, but, it doesn't appear the be the case.
       
      Has anyone ever done this before?  I'd love some tips or tricks to make my life easier, maybe pictures.......  At this point, it looks to be a pretty straight forward job, albeit difficult if the panels cannot come apart and be reassembled.
       
      Also, is there anyway to remove the cover for the airbag and put it back together?  I bought some absolutely beautiful new leather, and it is leaps and bounds better than the original, but, it appears that these are covered in leather first, and THEN assembled and the plastic "rivets" melted after the leather was put on the pieces.  Is that true?
       
      Any tips or tricks would be appreciated.
       
      Thanks,

      I have a gauge cluster from a 2001 Carrera that I would like to swap into my Boxster. I have reviewed the instructions and it appears to be within my capabilities. However, in looking at the cluster, it appears that one of the LCD's is damaged. Can I swap the LCD from my Boxster cluster or is there a company that can repair this?
