My 2009 997-2 4S has a failure on its rear passenger window yesterday. I was closing the cabriolet top and something went bang over by the rear passenger window and then as it moved I heard plastic falling off inside the mechanism. Now alas the mechanism will only go down, so its stuck fully down. Over the holiday weekend, I plan on taking off the side trim panelling to see what the problem is, but if anyone has any pointers I'd appreciate them. I've not heard of the rear window going on a 996 or 997 before, but expect they are fairly similar. 


Typical that it breaks just before the holidays.. :-(

I looked this up in the manual and it seems that on the Cab you have to remove part of the top lifting mechanism to get to the lifter. I'm concerned I'll screw up the top some how and the manual seems to claim the need for some 'porsche special tools' for some of the adjusters. The only good news is that the procedure seems to be the same for 2005+.. Has anyone tried this on a Cab post 2005?
