In late 2006 my passion for Porsche that had been kindled by owning a boxster lead me to search for a 911. In February 2007 I found a lovely, well used 964 carrera 2 coupe in GP white and embarked on a new adventure. This running report is about my 964 that would be used for high days, holidays and track days and be a 'project car'. It wouldn't matter if it spent time waiting for things to be fixed as it wouldn't be used as a daily driver.

Fixing a buzz in the dash (Jun 08)

Over time 964s develop a lot of little quirks, one of which is a buzzing noise from the dash board. The buzzing starts as soon as you turn the key and carries on for 20 minutes even after the ignition is switched off. This is caused by an air sampling fan at the back of the climate control unit. So today I took out the unit (comes out like a radio) and took apart the fan.

After removing nearly 20 years of dust and fluff, the little fan know runs quietly and the buzzing is gone.
