928 Door Stop

The door stop has come loose and wiggles as the door is opened and closed. The previous owner had some issue with it and had substituted an incorrect bolt in one of the holes (there are two).

The problem is the bolts were welded on the inside of the A piller (?) and one has falled off. There is no access to the other side.

I tried a bolt device that has a rubber end that expands as it tightens up, this worked up to a point but now has come loose since it is difficult to sufficiently tighten it. I can forward a photograph if helpful.

leaking hatch

Model: 928, Year:1988, Mileage:65,000, Type of use:Street use only
Hi,My 1988 928 has a serious leak around the glass in the hatch. After each night of rain I collect about a cup of water from the plastic I spread in the rear baggage area!!! Local automotive glass shops told me, they don 't dare work on it for fear of breaking the glass. Is there a successful method for re-sealing the hatch glass? A shop in Seattle or Vancouver, BC?I live in Victoria, BC.Cheers,-Raymond

Hatch not latching shut

Vehicle Information: Year: 1988; Engine (size, modifications): stock; Total Mileage: 84101; Transmission type: Autotomatic;

When closing the hatch in my 1988 928 S4, I am having a difficult time getting it to latch shut. I find that I have to slam it very hard to get it to latch and even when I get it to stick, the connection will break loose when I drive down a bumpy road. Do you think a simple adjustment needs to be made or that a part is worn out? Any suggestions as to how to go about troubleshooting this?

My windshield washer pump is toast. It resides on a frame rail buried deep inside the right side of the engine compartment. I can barley touch it from below and can't see it from above. How do you replace these things without removing the engine? How much disassembly of the engine is necessary?
