Default The silly little question thread ...

I'm often stumped by something porsche that I can tell will/shd/surely works ...
But I just can't see exactly how. Today it happened again .. For about the 7th time
so I thought I might as well just start a thread for these little things.

Like I remember puzzling over fitting the plastic cup that goes into the front of the shift rod ....
Turns out it needed to be pried in with a screw driver - I didn't think of that or thought it would damage it
so never tried that and 2 hrs later was still stumped ... And frustrated!

Any way for most of you it's stuff you can't even remember that you forgot ...
But for others/neophytes/amateurs like me these little gems are important/fun and sometimes feel like mountains not molehills

So to kick it off ... How do these work - Plastic Loom retainers that fit onto the body welded threaded studs?
I don't seem to be able to ..
1. Get one of them off without cutting/breaking it which ai don't want to do
2. Imagine how to put one on if I had a new one ... It has to screw on to the body mounted screw ...
But it can't do a full circle (never mind multiple ones) once the strip with the holes is located on a screw...

What am I missing?? Are these single use? do you have to hammer them on new?? Pity if it's so.
Thanks all.

They can be pryed off with a trim tool. They are fitted by pushing them down the studs or tapping home with a hammer

I will play as I am making shameful progress with my 964 refurb. I am doing the side skirts and was wondering once you get a new rubber sill seal how do you know which end of the rubber goes where ? also do you trim some rubber off as it seems it is slightly longer then the sill length>

It has a little notch which matches the slot in the skirt. The leftover rubber tucks behind the arch don't cut it.

Thanks V, Tom .... Just used a small claw hammer - worked perfectly.
Seems in this case and re the shift rod cup plastic needed force - wasn't expecting that!

Thanks for the hand!

thank you Lemass
will look again this weekend have a leaking garage roof which is not leaking loads but the drip drip is still a irritation. I was under the impression some one put the wrong seals in the wrong packets are they sided? as I was having issues trying to fit it but will tackle it again later on today.

Another little one ... Which holes are there in the car to allow the doors to close well ie without them bouncing off the air TRAPPED inside the cabin?

Are any of the holes on the ear parcel shelf for breathing or anything crucial .. or can they be plugged/covered over? I see some of them are taped but others ie closer to the rear glass aren't,

I think the ventilation holes are somewhere in the back quarter areas of the interior, and they vent to those circular holes that are near the oil cooler and a/c condenser behind the front bumper.

Yep vents are in the rear quarters just below the side windows. You can see a gap between the top panel trim and the glass rubber

Hey,
I was wondering if anyone knew of a good online shop for custom seat belts? I am going for some green belts to match my exterior along with some other things I have planned; a green tach, and black Lloyd mats with green "Porsche" stitching. The small yet flashy bits of green should bring some of the Wimbledon Green excitement into the otherwise 100% black stock inside.
