Hi chaps, anyone know what the cable in the drivers door shut, with a ring-pull attached, leading into the front wing is for?..

Sorry, boring post.

If the fuel filler lid solinoid packs up then you pull this and it opens .

Emergency release item for the fuel lid basically.

There are a few others like this too - have a read of the manual so you know where they are when the nearly inevitable happens and you need them!
Then you can take a moment to admire the engineering that went into (at least some) of the 997
Very Happy

I wish they could have done the same thing with the bonnet rather than making you faff about with a power source and attaching to the earth on the door and the bit in the fuse box as I the you are much more likely to need to access the boot as the battery is in their than the fuel filler!!

Im afraid thats down to security .. if it was easy to open a bonnet or boot then any thief could quickly do that and grab what ever is in there with the alarm going off and leg it .

You can unlock the car with the key .. jump pack on the red peg and the door latch and open the bonnet .. its pretty quick .. i did a 981 2 days ago and its about 30 seconds .

Doesnt matter if the bonnet has been shut with the battery disconnected either .

Its alsways going to be a balenceing act .. not everyone has a jump pack .. but i feel not everyone wants the boot/bonnet to be easily opened .

A cable inside the car to do this would be a good idea .. but we are now down to cost and the amount it would be used .. again smash a window .. pull the cable and grab whats in the boot .. easy to argue the case either way .. sigh .

My 2 pennys anways Smile
