SOURCE: squeaky windshield

I think I can help you on your sqeaky windshield problem. I have a 95 993 and have owned her since new. A couple months ago I had the windshield replaced due to a small crack. Anyway, it started to sqeak when driving on certain bumpy roads. I solved my problem by spraying some silicone lubricant on a clean low lint cloth and then pulled back the outer seal enough to get the siliconed cloth between the seal and the body of the car and went from one side of the car windshied to the other (left to right and so forth) Ipulled the cloth out from between the seal and the car . When I drove te car the next day the sqeak was gone Try that. I think It will solve your problem. John. P.S. Let me know if that works for you.

How does a manual top work on a 1998 BMW 323 I??

I believe you do this in this order. Roll windows down, release the latch at the top of the windshield, raise the front of the top, release rear cover by pulling the latch near the rear seat, Pull up the back of the top and then pull up on the rear cover. The back of the top should now fit into the opening under the rear cover. Continue to fold the top into this space. Push down on the rear cover to lock (won't be able to open trunk if not engaged.) To raise it, release rear latch cover, open rear cover and pull top out of opening. Raise rear of top so you are able to now close the rear cover, set rear of top down on cover and then pull fron of top down and engage the fraont latch. Hoe that helps.

Porsche 1996 993 c2: wing light stays on. It doesn't operate on its own but goes up and down in the manual mode.

Hello there
On passenger side under the dash is a relay for operating the rear spoiler.
The part number is 964 618 212 00.
This could be most likely your problem.

Porsche 2002 carerra cab driver side window does not go down

Obvious stuff. The key has to be in the ON position. Fuses should be located on left side near kick panel it might be third row all the way left side, 30 amp fuse. Will the window operate if you open the door a little? Maybe getting stuck in door seal. Top up or down it won't work?
After that you have to get in to the door and see if motor still good or if wiring is good.
