Interesting I figured it was just an open close microswitch didn't think it dealt with force.

Took off the rear engine cover and muffler to get some things refinished this past weekend and realized I had no idea what muffler I'd been running.
Still in the process of deciding which direction to take the exhaust system now. However still curious if anyone could identify.
Any ideas...?

In the frunk, It's always bothered me that the 'height' of the batter and PDTS is slightly higher than the rim of the spare tire. This makes the frunk carpet not level over the years. Was there any additional support in the wheel area that kept the reinforced carpeting completely flat in the frunk?

Will a rear parcel shelf from a 930 turbo fit in a 964? There is one for sale local to me and I'd like to buy it to retrim rather than alter my original one.

That looks like a Corsa muffler. Does your exhaust have a really crisp sound?

Quick question, Has anyone on here tried an induction heat tool on the nuts on the heat exchanger studs rather than gas?

Great question, wondering the same thing. Would the magnetic field - don't use this if you have a pace maker - impact the electronics in the car? It looks like you need to get the coil around to bolt, not sure there would be enough space to do that...

Relay question; relay number 928 615 111 01 shows in the 964 relay map as R33 Terminal X. The part number does not appear in the parts cat. What is this relay used for? When I searched it comes up on ebay for 944's and 928's as either a fuel pump relay or as an ignition relay - nothing as a 964 function. Any ideas?

Here is one for you all. I was looking at replacing a trim piece in the wheel well. Part number is either 964 504 219 00 or 964 504 220 and this is where my question comes in.
This is either the left or right side and I'm not positive what is the left side or right. Is it from the driving position and left is the US drivers side? Or is left when looking at the car from the front the US passenger side?

I guess I've not ordered a part yet where it mattered if it was left or right. So, what is it for our cars?

Thanks!

Typically R/H or L/H is as viewed from inside the car facing forwards (driving seating position doesn't come in to it). Other terms used (particularly in the UK) has been 'nearside' or 'offside'. That is, the side of the car nearest to the pavement/sidewalk (nearside) and the side of the car towards the road centre or furthest away from the sidewalk (offside). Hope that helps.

Correct, the US drivers side = left side

Can't answer your question specifically, but I got a rear parcel shelf from Mike at Autobahn. It was in perfect condition and I don't remember it costing very much. He probably has the color you want and it might end up being cheaper than having it re-covered.

Descided to change out the brake lines w/these cool red coated lines I bought from ECS. My "silly" question is this.
The fittings on each end are fixed, so when you tighten one end, your loosening the other or else the line twists into a knot. I thought "ok I'll just tighten it enough on each side until it starts to twist". Then I pressurized w/my Motive bleeder & most of the fittings were pissing brake fluid...ugh. Am I missing something here? This can't be that difficult.....

Hold the new line in place and tighten the fitting on the hard line side

The s/s soft line fits "over" the hard line flared fitting, so the only turning has to be the soft line. I realize you don't want to overtighten a flared fitting but I can't seem to tighten them enough without twisting the soft line into a knot. Too little and they leak....ugh.
