Fellow 928/931 owner here. Although my 931 was in good driver shape when I got it, so nothing near as daunting as the task before you. I'm no great mechanic though (I'm currently getting my butt kicke ...

Sounds like a great idea to me

With these cars becoming older and increasingly rare as accidents or part outs, is there any renewed interest in a 924 registry?

This is the only one I could find ...

Another thing to do, after you take care of some of the basic up-front stuff mentioned above, but definitely before you push it, is to get a boost gauge. It's up to you if you want to keep the stock l ...

I took some staring and thinking, but once I had the schematic straight it all made sense, more or less. There's a lot of misinformation out there about exactly what relay is needed. In this case, I ...

Well, I had not really thought about what I should do yet...just trying to figure out what had been done, and if it were sufficient. It's not really an S1 conversion, although it seems to be similar. ...

This is undoubtedly wishful thinking, but does anyone know of a detailed description of what our ignition systems do/how they do it?

By that I mean what pieces control what, and what exactly do the ...

PostForum: 931 Discussion   Posted: Mon May 07, 2018 9:53 am   Subject: Shocks
So are the shocks for this car the same as used on the early 944s?

The reason I ask: I have a source for some lightly-used Konis from an early 944...if they're the same, sounds like a nice cheap s ...

Just to wrap this up and put a bow on it...it was the relay.

Some things I learned (for the dual fan AC-equipped cars):

The driver's side fan runs at slow speed if the temp switch on the radiato ...

I assume that is the brown carpet that the sun turns green? I have that issue in mine as well. I wonder if anyone has had any luck redying them? Or does someone sell a carpet kit for this car.

Hmm...I most definitely have two fans, and I have the cooling fan relay described in the early 944 material.

My working assumption at this point is that my cooling fan relay is bad. I need to test ...

I've recently started overheating, but only at idle or stop and go traffic. Long open roads at speed, no problem. Sounds like fans, right? Only, I hear them running after I shut the car off, as they ...

So I got the regulator replaced. The problem was not a stripped gear, as I imagined, but part of the metal frame, near the center gear area, broke completely in half. Very weird.

For the record, t ...

Anyone have these that they want to sell, in good condition? I can't find them anywhere, in brown. I do see a few in black on Ebay.

This is a two-piece part, although the one I need is the larger ...

My window is stuck down. I can hear the motor running, but the glass doesn't move.

Fifty50Plus wins the prize! I knew it wasn't the overboost switch, since that is already disconnected and the wire grounded. The buzzing to which I referred was from the back, the fuel pumps. I jumper ...
