  1. Hey @michel as I couldn't locate any of the OEM rare as hens teeth ones, and no Thule, Yakima options I've gone with the SeaSucker solution, they are fantastic https://www.seasucker.com.au/monkey-bars-2020-edition/
  2. Merry Xmas crew early Xmas present for me just after I hit 245,000 on the S2 - both the Odometer and Trip meter have stopped working. Can anyone recommend someone in Melbourne for repairs/replacement? I know the trip meter can be fairly brittle but when does the Odometer normally request an overhaul? thanks in advance for any guidance 🙏
  3. Thanks @Jason E my issue seems to be with the “fitter” saying it won’t tension correctly @OzJustin thanks for that I’ll look into them did you just run the normal belt through it and connect the tether to the bracket in the boot?
  4. I’ve just been to Baby Bunnings to try and have a few different child seats fitted and although I’ve found a few good sized ones the issue seems to be with the actual belt ( all www searches I’ve done tend to all be US related) the anchor points are AOK in the 944 and looking for a little bit of guidance or options from others who have made the dive into bringing the kiddies along in the P Car (something I certainly never got to experience as a kiddy) Thanks in advance 🙏
  5. I’ve started the hunt for some roof racks for my 89 S2 and understand that they did originally have OEM roof racks has anyone put racks on their 944 or knows where you can source some OEM (possibly sitting under dusty sheets for 25yrs) thanks in advance and can’t wait to get out driving again!!!!
  6. Beautiful car @finnystew- I picked mine up about 9mths ago - such fantastic handling & raw noise out the rear end Love to meet up and go for a spin
  7. Thanks @OzJustin good to know on the Aussie spec - I'll look into it
  8. Thanks for the quick replies... I’ll run the process of globe, connection and fuse and see if that changes anything 🙏🙏🤞
  9. Hi front engine fanatics I’m after some advice help or guidance on how I can work out why my fog lights are not working - 89 S2 the interior switch works, green light comes on ill be honest I have zero auto electrical skill/knowledge so I’m also open to anyone. You recommend in Melbourne area to suss it out and help thanks in advance! Karl
  10. Fantastic morning, great to meet you all at my first C&C and seeing my 944 amongst the wonderful smorgasbord of 911’s 👍
  11. Australian delivered (South Australia) Matching numbers Full maintenance history Major Service April 2015 231bhp I’ve only had this beautiful Targa for just over 12 months and it’s time to move onto a new home. I have had it on VIC Club Plates (TYP901 club) since ownership and mainly take it out as a weekender. Reason for sale is what I read too often here on the forums….“soon to be married, need house deposit….baby on the way!” so yes this is a clichéd sale and I’m very sad to see it go – Melbourne property seems to be in sync with SWB 911’s! The photos will give you an indication of the immaculate condition of the car, it’s rust free, all seals are crack free and all roof seals are unbroken and in as new condition. The other night I was caught out in a freezing wet night and the roof did not and has never sprung a leak. Sports seats are original option upgrade. Fuchs all unmarked and in pristine condition. Now to the km’s. yes it has more than 370,000km on the clock. Yes that is a lot. Yes it has been loved, driven and enjoyed in its 30yrs. This is a good thing. I do not have documentation on when or if a engine rebuild or refresh or transmission overhaul has been done - the 3.2’s are renowned for being bullet proof– all I can tell you is that it had a full major service in 2010 by Porsche specialist AutoArt and it has again had a minor service when I purchased it May 2014 and major service in April 2015 at Motion Automotive Porsche specialist in Melbourne – it runs flawlessly. Air Con – as you can see it’s disconnected, this is how I purchased it – if you know these cars the A/C is not great – the heating on the other hand is brilliant…..roof off, windows up and heater on the feet is how I drive 90% of the time! Maintenance/Service has been between Motion Automotive and Autooart Porsche Service (both Melbourne based) I have the maintenance records for every 20,000km scheduled Porsche service since 1984. The car idles perfectly, no hunting, responds as required when the right pedal is squeezed and the left peddle depressed, blows no smoke on start up and has run without any incident since I have owned it. So great to see that Porsche have introduced the new Targa, it really gives you the best of both worlds in both warm and cold climates – I also thought I’d stick a photo of Singers latest project which is of course, a Targa. I look forward to re-joining a Porsche Club in the years to come! If you are ready to buy, serious and always wanted a 3.2 lets talk Offers over $60,000 VIN – WPOZZZ91ZES141229 ENGINE – 63605720 Karl
  12. Drivers side door window has dropped into the door I can still hear the motor/regulator working but now the window is stick in door and rattling around, how do I fix it? 911 carrera 1984 electric windows Thanks
  13. This forum gets a bit addictive - help at every reply! I'm switching over the monte carlo wheel on my '84 Carrera targa and replacing with an original SC 3 spoke wheel - wider diameter easier for cruising and seeing dials....and of course turning One of the clips on the actual wheel that the horn pad attached to has broken off (see picture) and I've no idea where to source one. Wheel and leather is in good nic so no need to buy a whole wheel! couldn't get a hold of 27mm deep socket so running with a 1 1/16th to perform the changeover
