I know it's a mechanical issue hence me stating "dismantled, cleaned on the contacts (+adjusted if necessary) and re-assembled". My scooter had the exact same problem last year. If it was £25 I'd've fixed it but not worth it at £20 Grin


Question I'm confused - the spring internally has gone, so it doesn't hold the barrel in the correct position anymore, so not sure how cleaning it will fix it..........? Unless I'm really missing something Dont know

(+adjusted if necessary)

Contacts can be adjusted, springs can be adjusted.

Hi guys,

1. Fitted the bumper mesh grilles.
2. Fitted more extended leather, so many leather covered parts fitted including custom parts. Just need to door grilles in leather now.
3. Fitted new quad tailpipes
4. Changed a coil pack
5. Had the headlamps polished

Vinny

It'll look something like this inside. It's just a case of cleaning stuff and bending contacts back into place.

You're alright Thumb

I spend half my life fixing stuff! Just a shame though how we've come to be a throwaway society because most of the time it's cheaper to buy a new part than the cost of labour to repair the old one.

Speaking of buying new parts - Everyday's Christmas in my house Laughing

Cheers, was surprisingly easy to fit with a online step by step guide even for a numpty like me.

Have now managed this and headliner removal and refit so slowly getting on with jobs I might have otherwise sent to a 'pro'.

was always a little skeptical about carbon dipped parts vs. genuine (at 10x the cost Sad ) but they do look great now fitted and get rid of pretty much all the marks/scratches on the console which I kept telling myself was fine for a 10year old car but in reality bothered me....

would highly recommend to anyone who wants to give their interior alittle lift Cool and big thanks to Johhny Dangerous on here for the help/advice when doing the deal.

Ive treated mine to the 997 gt3 SSK (metal bushes one) and i hope to fit it. Ive also bought a 'kit' from ebay to bodge the rear spoiler up all the time until i can convince swmbo that i need a fixed wing.

New mats have just arrived and are sat in the passenger seat awaiting install; £140! and thats with TIPEC discount... WTF

Priced up the panel to replace where the Porsche telephone will have been (when i take it out) - leather; that will be £309 of your English pounds plus the very angry tax! Leatherette - £45 + VAT.... Anyone else done this and can you tell the difference in the two...??

Hoping to have the car valeted in the next few days and desperately need to get the PCM2 upgraded... Thats another grand to be chucked at her, too. I could hire a stream of hookers for that..... Judge

valet booked for tomorrow morning!!

Funny enough - went into my local car wash place and, while talking to the Eastern European guy who runs the place (Jesus him and his colleagues run a good place!! They all work blimin' hard) - suddenly said man says 'are these with you...??' - looked behind me and 996 C2 Cab and a GT3 pulled up on the block, too... Surprised Surprised

It will look a lot cleaner tomorrow... thumbsup
