Had this very early production 05 come in the other day for a window issue, brake fluid flush, and oil change.
Draining the oil and of course installing a magnetic drain plug.
And bleeding the brake system.
This car had the typical “window goes back up after you release the handle” which makes closing the door a real pain, so a new door latch mechanism was in order.
Unfortunately, the 997 is much harder to get to than the 996 is due to the solid metal door panel that has to be removed.
But with enough work, eventually out comes the latch mechanism and we replace with the new one! Out the door she goes!
