Late 944 Odometer Not Working

I was out this weekend when I noticed my odometer stoped working - I replaced the gears in the odometer approx. 4 years so I know there good - If I remember correctly there is a small electric motor that works the odometer, is there a way to test it - Is there a fuse I can check?

84-86 944 Early Style Sunroof Problem

I have an early 1986 944. The sunroof will release to allow the lift off of the panel but the arms that tilt the roof do not function. I hear a grinding noise from the sunroof motor. As it is an early 1986 build  it has  cables to activate the arms and not the plastic gears used in later 1986 builds and subsequent cars. Is the potentially damaged gear in the sunroof motor replaceable or does the complete motor need to be replaced?

944 Rear Carpet - Removing Gasoline Smell

Yes, I picked up a 944 S2 a year ago and have been slowing fixing bits and pieces.  One of the biggest items fixed was several fuel leaks that created a significant smell of gas in the cabin.  I've replaced the gas tank, charcoal canister, multiple fuel lines, regulator, fuel pump gasket, etc.  The car has been smoked, pressure is good and there are now no leaks.  Wonderful! 

1987 944 Cracked Dash

I have a rather cracked black dash in a 1987 n/a 944. The car has very low miles and the dash stands out as worth fixing / replacing. Not sure if I can find a non-cracked dash and swap it out and then sell my cracked one on ebay or something to help bring the cost down, or if there is a repair place to take it to or a kit that would look fully factory?  The caps look like you would know there was a cap on it, so with a car that is pretty much all original, seems like not the way to go?  Seems like has to be an option between the $3k new dash from Porsche and the $200 cap from ebay...

944 Interior Codes

I am trying to decode the interior colors for my 1987 944 turbo I have attached the sticker from the trunk. The car has black leather seats and light tan carpets which I am being told is not the correct interior. I have the window sticker, which matches this sticker and the owners manual codes. Just cannot find a listing to interpet the colors. ( I know the seats are correct but the issue seems to be the carpet. Thanks, Mike

944/968 Cabriolet Screw Plug

I am restoring my 1990 944 S2 cabriolet (VIN:  WPOCB2943LN481085). The interior windshield surround has several black screw hole filler plugs which are missing.

I have a reproduction of the Porsche 944 parts catalogue; the filler plug which is defined for the 944 cabriolet is part number 914.552.233.10.01C. I ordered #10 of these but they are incorrrect for the cabrilet- (they are correct for the interior windshield surround of my 1989 944 coupe).

Blaupunkt Reno 2 Radio Code Reset

I have a 1990 944 S2 Cabriolet with the Blaupunkt Reno 2 radio option.  The radio is locked and I have the code.  However, the dial shows 4 blank lines (----) and is not accepting any code.  Not knowing the history of the attempted radio recovery, the lock may need more than the simple code.  In review of the manual, there is a statement that 'after 16 such attempts, the radio can only be decoded in the Blaupunkt service workshop'.  Does anyone have a recommendation of how to decode a Blaupunkt Reno 2 radio beyond using the recommended station preset buttons?  Thanks
