I have this 911SC in the shop right now for some other issues, but the door handle on the driver side was broken (lever snapped), so the owner wanted to be able to get in and out 🙂 Quite the predicament when wanting to get in the car 😉 Remove the inner door panel, and you can remove the door handle from the car.

Typical issue found with the 997.1’s is a slow cranking of the engine when trying to start, especially after the car has been driven awhile and is shut down and restarted while hot. The issue is resistance builds up in the harness and causes this power drop to the starter. The solution is a new cable. This project does require alternator, a/c compressor, and throttle body/center plenum removal to accomplish. Alternator removed to get one end of the cable. The …

I had this 997 GT3 come through the shop a few weeks ago during a cross country adventure for the customer and his wife.  They had driven out from the east coast, stopped to fill with gas in Kansas City, and starting having misfire and running issues immediately after.  I have to say, this was an absolute brain scratcher of a problem.  The customer had just had his spark plugs and coils changed out east, motor removed for coolant pipe …
