I Made A Thing (for a 996 Targa)

Recommended Posts

If you have a 996 Targa you'll know that the little rubber piece that covers the rear glass' latch tends to degrade and fall apart. I designed a replacement piece that you can 3D print. Just make sure that you use PETG or ABS plastic so it doesn't melt when your car is sitting out in the sun. I'll probably get some filler primer and some matte black paint to make it match the rest of the trim, but I think it turned out pretty well.

I don't know how much a genuine replacement costs, but it was a fun little exercise for me. smile.gif

Thanks!

If you already have a 3D printer and filament, it's really only a few cents worth of material to print.

If anyone here needs one, I'll happily make one for them for the cost of shipping.  Only takes about an hour to print.

That's a super cool offer! How does it clamp down to the locking mechanism? Does it just sit on top or are there some kind of clips?

It just rests in there.  There's a groove along the edges that the original piece was molded to fit into.  My 3D print has some bits that fit into that same groove to hold it in place.

Any chance of something like this being created for the hole where the rear seat belts come out?  I'm wanting to do a rear seat and seatbelt delete in my targa and would like something to plug those.

Hmm.  I could certainly give it a try, but it'll have to wait until I can pull out one of my rear belts to get the measurements.  I'll let you know!

Very cool!  I have great respect for people who not only can do this kind of thing, but are willing to share the results of their effort.  Well done sir!

      Hi all, 
       
      First of all I apologize if I do anything wrong since I only just created this account in order to ask this community a question. 
       
      We own a Porsche 996 Targa 2002 and as we all know the 996 is prone to engine problems such as IMS and oil and coolant mixture.
      Today when I was checking if the engine still had enough oil and coolant and decided they needed a fillup I saw something that I did not really like. 
       
      I've uploaded two pictures one of how the coolant looks and another picture of where you add the oil.
      Is the yellowish stuff you see ok or is this the first sign of the oil and coolant mixture? 
       
      The car seems to run fine and never had any problems with engine temperature, hope you guys can help me out on this one! 
       
      With kind regards,
       
      A somewhat nervous 996 owner.

      New on this site.  Short intro - bought a beat up 993 Targa 3 years ago whilst living in Dubai.  Spent some money on it including a bare metal respray then Company transferred me to Singapore but couldn't take the car with me so exported it back to the UK as I couldn't sell it.  
       
      Car has failed its MOT on emmissions - no surprise but trying to find out exactly what it is fitted with.  The car went straight from the factory to the Middle East and has the following options:-
       
      Rest of the world car
      M6422-63T Engine
      C32 - Arab states
      M150 - leaded
       
       
      Can anybody shed any light on what the above codes mean in terms of a catalytic convertor, lambda sensing etc, especially C32 and M150 codes.
       
      Thinking to fit a sports cat to it.
       
      Some pics added for interest.
       

       
      Thanks

      I've searched the forums, and I haven't found a similar issue...
       
      I have a 2004 Targa and the windows have been working great up until the last couple of weeks.  Now when I have the passenger window down and I press the switch for it to go back up, it'll get about half way up, pause, and then put itself back down.  After a couple of tries I can manage to get it to go all the way back up by holding the switch down.  I've tried resetting the limits, but that didn't help.  The driver's side window works great.
       
      Any ideas?

      Hi,
       
      I've searched the forum and couldn't find an answer and am posting here for your help.  Let me know if this isn't the right place for this question.
       
      I'm  searching for my first 911 and am confused about the headlights.  On one 911 targa (2002) the options sticker does not list Litronic headlights but the owner and ppi shop said it does.  Another 2002 targa lists the option on the sticker.
       
      Do some 2002s have Litronic/bi-xenon headlights as standard equipment?
      Regards,
      Mike

      Does anyone know how many 997 Targa's were produced? I've looked all over but have only been able to find the total number of 997's produced but not by model.
