The rear spoiler malfunction of 997

The rear spoiler automatic retraction stopped working. When I use the manual switch, I can hear the sound trying to work, maybe the regulator is broken? Help!

What you need to do is raise the spoiler via the switch to the full extent and place pieces of wood between the spoiler and body, then using a 'C' spanner to fit round the top of the rams and locate into the small hole (i found the multi purpose spanner that comes with pushbikes has just the right fitting) turn each ram 1/4 turn, but be careful because when it releases from the spoiler the ram will retract into its housing with great force taking the spanner with it and damaging the body. good luck!

SOURCE: There is a clicking noise

Sounds like a bad relay for the power window motor or a bad wire.

964, rear spoiler won't work


Start by checking remote switch. Test to see if there is power at the spoiler motor. If there is power getting to the motor check for bad ground. Finally remove the cable that drives the spoiler up and down and apply 12v dc to the motor. If the motor turns check to see if you can turn the cable without the motor and that the spoiler moves. I all power checks out and the spoiler won't move by turning the cable, the gearing that the cable attaches to is most likely damaged.

It probably needs lubrication. This is a known issue on the 997 Carrera. Mine made terrible noises while moving until I lubed it with some GP lithium grease I had laying around.

Rear spoiler does not work.


The rear spoiler is controlled by a Rear Spoiler Control Module. Fuse 35 (30A) and Fuse 5 (7.5A) located in the fuse panel behind left side of dash provide power to the control module. After ensuring that the fuses are good, I would toggle the Rear Spoiler Switch to see if the servo-motor works properly. It is located under the steering wheel underneath the flat part of the dash.

Ok we figured something out. The turbo model has a rear retractable spoiler that flips up when you go above 45 mph and down when you go below 10. The later models just have a fixed spoiler. Still looking into if it should make that loud 'ratchety' sound.

Sound from rear


This is more than likely the rear spoiler. When exceeding 45 mph, the spoiler will deploy but is hard to hear due to the sound of the engine, when decelerating back to 10 mph (or less), the spoiler will return to its stored position. This sounds exactly like the experience you described, so I am guessing that this is the culprit.
There are a few ways to confirm:
1: Seated in the driver's seat, reach beneath the dashboard console, searching for a button/switch. This will be located at the bottom of the console (roughly, right above where your left shin/knee would be positioned when driving). If you find a switch, push it and see if it deploys the Spoiler. You will need to have the key and turned so that electricals may function.
2: Look above your rear window. You will likely see a black piece of plastic above it which would be the spoiler. Look at the gap between it and the window.. ...looking about 1 fit in from the side of the Spoiler, you will likely see the metal hinge that the moves the Spoiler up.
3: This is the most fun solution: drive the car over 45 with a friend driving behind you. Just to be safe, take it up to 50 or 60 and have them watch to see if it deploys. You will not be able to see it from within the beetle unless you lower the back seat and have somebody crawl all the way into the back (which would be terribly unsafe and uncomfortable).

Let us know if this is indeed the issue and have fun with your bug!
