Second treatment of Pedros Ice Wax has silenced the front screen creak, now to see how long it lasts. Pleased to have this sorted for now!

A good and really reassuring hour spent at Porsche Portsmouth with one of their technicians and the 993 in the air carrying out a very detailed assesment of exactly what needs changing at same time as doing FSD shocks and Mo33 Springs.

All pretty good was the conclusion with some slight wear but no major items. Agreement is to book it in and then if when its apart more needs doing they will let me know.

From my own experience I find the team at Portsmouth incredibly accommodating and nothing is too much trouble.

Finally installed the engine tidy strip to hide the untidy insulation foam.

New black rubber/plastic engine-cooling air duct to replace split one (that appeared overnight).

Part 993.106.403.00 for non-Vario 1995 car from OPC Hatfield. £33.72 incl VAT and PDC discount.

Tips on removal and fitting to a/c car. You will need 10mm combination spanner:

1. Remove the plastic retaining clip from the two a/c hoses so they can be lifted away for more room. NOTE! The retaining clip detaches completely - it is not hinged. So will ping off if you are not careful...

2. Loosen the three bolts a couple of turns. There is no nut on the other side, the metal fan shroud is threaded. But soft cast metal, so no over-tightening.

3. Pull the old split duct off the big black plastic air duct that feeds it. Push air duct away from bolts and with some wiggling it comes out.

4. Carefully (so they don't drop into the engine bay) remove the middle and left-hand - as you look at the engine - bolts and washers. The other won't come out as it's up against the a/c compressor support. It can be loosened off more.

4. Wipe a little washing up liquid on opening of new duct and clip it onto the big black plastic air duct. This was easy.

5. Wiggle the duct around so that the rear three rear clips sit on the inside of the plastic engine shroud and the three cut-outs slide into place on the holes for the bolts. I found getting the one under the right-hand (a/c side) bolts was OK if unscrewed to the limit.

6. Fit centre bolt - can be done with socket. Don't tighten up yet.

7. Left-hand bolt is tricky, as you are fitting it UNDER the new (and stiff) flexible part of the duct. I just did it by willpower and a flat-bladed screwdriver to guide it in until the thread started to bite. This is when the bolt can fall into the engine bay. Careful!

8. Pull on the new duct to make sure it is secure and the cut-outs are up against the bolts and the rear clips inside the shroud.

9. Tighten up bolts.

10. Refit a/c hose retaining clip and make sure it's fully clicked home.

Reminiscent of the Carrera GT. Each to their own and good to see someone thinking outside the box. Thumb

some more bits that I recently bought and have fitted, which I'll catch up when the Birch Gear Lever is fitted

- storage box
- Targa plastic handbrake cover
- part 11A

To achieve the below look, since I've now for a fix rear spoiler and have removed the rear wiper i.e. 2 redundant swicthes

Objective, fit the 993 RS console storage box and move the sunroof switch to the Targa roof switch position in the handbrake cover (cars without fixed rear spoilers)

Major service and MOT at Motortune - I like to "tinker" but for continuity of my comprehensive service history I always get a stamp each year and Peter is very good 👍

Trying a semi synth gearbox oil to see if helps the notchy shift when cold - to be honest I don't really notice as I drive around it- don't reckon it warrants a gearbox rebuild but it will probably happen at one point!

Looks great - what did you do with the little red light (I'm sure I've got two of them)?

A/c condenser, drier, various o rings. Evap ,valve , resistor already in stock.
I could have taken it all out as the evaporator is blown and its a long tedious job, but I like to have a/c being a northern lad (can't stand the heat) and an open window blows my fag ash all over the place. New pump already fitted, have you seen OPC prices! Following a very good walk through on pcarworkshop/pelican parts. With the help of my mate Jim @Chillout who supplied a new very reasonably priced pump. Fortunately the 944 is running like a top.

Since there is already one on each door, this 3rd red light is currently just tucked up hidden from view, but ultimately this UK Dealer fit 'Hamilton & Palmer' LED alarm light will be removed.

That lower panel has the space for it, whereas the upper one doesnt, the key point being the door already have them.

Will do a complete thread on this mod.

Replaced missing tonneau cover with one from design 911.
Should have done it sooner really tidies up the lines and reduces flap and noise at speed.

a/c rad out, not a difficult job especially as the big washer bottle has gone. Followed Jackals blog and the brackets and frame are off for powder coating the 22 mm nut on the rad was finger tight! No visible leaks but the fins were crumbling. Old one by NRF new NRF one going in. Next job petrol tank out etc.

Will be interesting to see how you get on. have you already replaced the pipes and brackets that run inside the n/s sill cover?

They have been replaced twice, once by indie failed after 2 yrs. I did them myself second time and followed service bulletin. It's the evaporator thats gone this time must only be a small leak because there was still some pressure in the pipes, would stop working 2 days after regass and the dye was visible from the floor vent. I decided to do the whole system. Pump already replaced. I'll leave the drier until it's ready for a regass. Seems to be getting a common age related failure as a friend just had his 964 done. The pump itself is used on Toyotos and Volvos you just need to swap the clutch, pulley and pipe connector block. For a saving of several hundred pounds.
