    Re: 987.2 clutch is undriveable. I hate this car

  4. Re: Drive Overheated Park Vehicle and allow to Cool

    Re: Power Window problem

    The window goes up and down normally. It did make some noise at first but now it seems to operate normally with no strange noises. The open/ close door issue remained.
