Replacement door lock pull rod

I am looking for a very small but important part.

The drivers side door lock pull rod, it fell apart as I was taking the door apart for a repair.

Ordered one from Pelican but way too long, apparently Porsche is now substituting the longer version and requiring a cable replacement--$80 plus for the cable alone!!


Was looking for a salvage yard but not finding anything on the web.

Any suggestions?

Any help greatly appreciated


Hand brake

Model: 911, Year:76, Mileage:?, Type of use:Street use only
How do you remove the rubber handle (901 424 521 01) from the lever (911 424 059 00) on the hand brake?Thanks

door latch and locking mechanism

Model: 911 Carrera , Year:1984, Mileage:125,00, Type of use:Street use only
Is there an adjustment on the door latch assembly? The passenger door will not open from the outside. When attempting to open the door from the outside, the latch trigger is squeezed until it goes entirely under the handle, but it doesnt open the door.

Clutch Switch for Cruise Control

Model: 1981, Year:911S, Mileage:62000, Type of use:Street use only
The Cruise control on my 1981 911SC hasn't worked since I replaced the clutch cable a few months ago. It didn't dawn on me until recently that there was a switch to sense when the clutch is disengaged. I don't know where the switch is or how to best access it. Also, I'd appreciate any tips on adjusting it. Thanks.

Rear deck lid will not stay latched

Model: 911S, Year:1976, Mileage:127K, Type of use:Street use only
I have a deck lid that does not stay latched and know it just needs an adjustment. It does latch when not driving the car, but a gentle pull on the lid releases it. When I started to replace a worn out hood shock, of course it pops right up. What do you adjust to keep the rear deck lid closed and what tools are best for doing the work? Thanks.

Clutch Spring

Model: carrera, Year:1985, Mileage:149K, Type of use:Street use only
JUst recently replaced the clutch/brake pedal assembly. Hard a very difficult time in replacing the spring near the clutch pedal. Is there a special tool required to reattach the spring? Also, I had to reattach the clutch cable at the throwout bearing end and had a problem doing so, again is this a special tool job?

Heel toe down-shifting

Can you suggest a reference for pedal adjustment for improved heel toe down-shifting in an unmodified 911 SC? In the stock configuration, it is very difficult to blip the accelerator while depressing the brake. Thanks.
