Replacing Rear Wall
"I always meant to replace it" Steve says to me.
So I've been driving like an ass as of late (over 100mph), so I figured I better replace that Rear Wall and keep the rear of my car down before I kill myself.
It's covered in dirt and soot back there. Ah, reminds me of my old 912, So I lift the spoiler to see how the hell I'm going to replace it. 4 Shaft-bolts (micro-encapsulated M 6 x 24) need to be removed first. Not a problem. Then, after some thinking I lower the spoiler to half way to gain access to the lower portion. I have to "pop" it out. Now the whole unit is off. On my bench I try and see how to remove the top portion? A putty knife does the trick (rather well) so the whole Rear Wall is now detached.
I clean the spoiler up a bit. Remove the "Made in Germany" sticker. I use the putty knife again to attach the top area. It snaps in place. I then screw back in the 4 Shaft-bolts (loose). The bottom section pop's back in with no real issues. I seat the 4 bolts and there you have it.
I test the raising and lowering of the spoiler to make sure there is good clearence, no binding, and no more cracking. All is good. I take her out on the road to see if I can feel any difference. I could lie and say:
"What a differenc that made - good thing I replaced it..." but I'd be lying out of my ass. This was a simple project that I knew I could take care of in a night and not have to leave the car in the garage till I got back around to it. Enough said.
