2000 Carrera 2 - Doors of the air housing assembly


Recommended Posts

The foam covering the doors/flaps of the air housing assembly (where the A/C evaporator is) is failing and pieces of foam are coming out of the A/C vents.   I intend to have the doors replaced.  I have spare door frames (uncovered) and I would like to cover them with suitable material in preparation for the replacement (Porsche does not sell the doors separately from the air housing assembly).  Could somebody make a recommendation on the material to use?  I am concerned about both durability and the ability of the doors to seal properly when closed. 

 

Thanks in advance

I had some thin foam (forgot where it came from) and I just used some 3m spray adhesive to apply it to both sides of the door.  Worked fine, no issues after 6 months.

I just did this a few weeks ago. I used the widest window weatherstripping I could find at Lowes. It's a one side adhesive foam. I wrapped it all around the the door, wrapping around the edges. I then covered the whole thing in duct tape. Kind of a redneck fix but it works great. I had zero foam left on the door/flap. A/C is nice and cold now.

It's not an overly complicated procedure, just a bit fiddly. If you decide to perform the DIY I can talk you through any issues. The whole thing took me about 5 hours with a few beer breaks in between. The hardest part was getting under the dash as I had to contort myself in ways only a skilled Russian gymnast can.

I am working on a 1999 911 and I am trying to get to the metal air flap under the cowl. I have it all apart but I wanted to know if there is a special way to remove the heater (Part with the coolant lines) out of the way. I took the two bolts out and it moves but not enough to get out.
