996 Cabrio top rear window tension cable out at top


Recommended Posts

Okay this is REALLY specific.

The adjustable tension cable on the drivers side of my cabriolet disconnected at the top where it threads (8mm) into the top frame, not at the bottom where it snaps onto the ball.

The is a larger diameter (10mm?) clean smooth painted hole where the cable needs to thread in, which leads to the presumption that there was a nut on the back side?

Searched all over including removing driver's side rear 'door' panel and fishing around with a magnet but no loose nut found.

Looks like getting to back side of this frame casting would entail a major disassembly of the cabriolet top frame?

 

Also, what does this clip that goes over hydraulic cylinder do?

Right side clips is in place about halfway down length of cylinder.

Left side clip was down around the base of the shaft.

Replacing it where there appears to be a shiny spot looks like it would interfere with the cabriolet top potentiometer arm.
