On a 1988 911 coupe, to get the steering wheel off, the first step is to remove the horn button by pulling back to disengage he snaps.  How hard must one pull? It seems t be fairly well attached.

How to remove door latch assembly on 1984 911

I'm having issues with the drivers door lock on a 1984 911. The inside  "round" door lock  handle is jammed.  I  beleive the issue is with the "964-531-053-01 Door Latch/Lock Mechanism"  Hopefully just one of the plastic rod clips but could be one of the metal lever connections. Anyway  can someone tell mey how to get it out (around the window railings) etc with minimal  destruction ?

Whaletail Lid Release problem


My rear lid doesn't "pop" openlike it used to when I pull release lever in door jamb. I have to ask for assistance  to lift the lid while I tug on lever. Seems like lever tension opens the release ok.The lid shocks are fairly ok. Holds up hood most of the time.

Is there a spring that has to be replaced to fix this issue? If I need to access engine when Im alone, I'd have a problem.



leak through sunroof

I have a water leak above the right rear window that drips through the headliner.  Is this most likely related to the sunroof or an old rubber window seal?

Replacing drivers side rearview mirror

Model: Carrera, Year:1986, Mileage:125000, Type of use:Street use only
Some wiseguy ripped off my drivers side mirror at the juncture with the base, so base to door is OK. I can pull it out so it just hangs by the electrical wire.Is this a difficult job? I went to Pelican Parts and they gave me an exploded picture of all the parts involved. Any idea of cost to have this fixed should I go to my shop? Did check Body and Interior, didn't see similar question. Rick Wahlberg

Adhesive for "Carrera" label

Model: 911 Carrera, Year:1985, Mileage:166K, Type of use:Street use only
The "Carrera" label that is on the engine hood fell off. It appears to be black plastic. Can you suggest what type of adhesive I should use to re-attach it back to the hood? Should I clean the area on the painted hood with anything special prior to gluing it back? Thank you
