Rescue: 87 924S from NY

So is a running, driving car really a rescue?  Yes and no.  In this case, the car showed well with decent paint and interior, and seemed to run well.  The bottom, however, was another story.  That story unfolded on the lift.

Front Door Speakers That Fit…

Our journey started with the acquisition of our mint 1988 924S Special Edition.  While the car is in great original condition including the original functioning Blaupunkt Sebring cassette radio, the front speakers weren’t working.  Upon further investigation, the front speakers were completely deteriorated – the paper cone was no longer connected to the outside edge of the speaker. Replacement was needed to restore the cassette/radio to its former glory.  

944 Rescue Mission

A couple of weeks ago 924S944.com acquired a 1984 944 NA – they were all “NA” in ’84 – that was in okay shape, but needed some love.  We call these “rescue puppies.”  They are not parts cars, but they are not in good enough shape to go play with the other dogs…they need some help.

924 vs 944: Transaxles

There have been a variety of transaxles used in the 924/944/924S/968 series.  Understanding them helps to understand what to do when you need to replace yours – getting the right one that will work with your car.  Replacing the transaxle is not an easy task, and you don’t want to have to do it twice.

Mechanical Myths

“I will put some of this in it, and it will be fine.”  If it is leaking, it will continue to leak.  Magic fluids may help in an emergency, but eventually the leak will come back and it will need to be fixed properly.  Magic leak-stopping fluids may get you home, but they are not a permanent fix.
