Hardtop Replacement and Rear Defroster

Recommended Posts

2001 C2 Cab.  I got a used hard top for my convertible it was off an 02 996, and it fits good and the rear defroster light comes on, but it does not clear the rear window.  is there some other connection I need to make?  I didn't see any.

It depends, the older tops have a plug to connect while the newer ones do not. You may have a newer top on an older model.  I don't have a MY01 CAB Owner's Manual.   If you do, check and see what the connection instructions are. 


Maybe someone with an MY02 can check the manual for it's connection. There is also 2 different types of rear posts connections as well.

Correct just flip the switch.

I have the stock bayonet mounting pins, ~1/2 turn to lock it down. I think 2005 went to the screw type pins.

Porsche used to offer a kit to update for ~$300? I think the kit is now $1000.
