Shock Treatment!!!! – 944 Rear Shocks Replacement

Now its time to replace the back shocks, I got all the tools needed below. Not shown is a flat-head screwdriver and a hammer. YOU ALWAYS NEED A FLATHEAD AND A HAMMER.

1. Loosen the bottom bolts before you jack the car. I used the handle from the jack to add more force to the wrench.
2. Jack the car.
3. Loosen the top bolts.
4. Remove the shock.
5. Replace the shock. Use hammer when necessary to beat the new shock in, LOL. My new shocks was 2mm wider.

From Trash to Treasure – Sony V150

When these came across my desk, only one side worked. YOU KNOW HOW MY MIND WORKS, so I decided to attempt to repair them. I did some research and thanks to @samroesch, I found out you could break these headphones down (here). One the wires were crimped. Since the crimp was near the top of the cord and the cord is long, I figured I could cut and re-solder the wires to the speaker. Below are the tools used.

944 Oil Pressure Sending Unit Replacement

This is an easy fix for my car because I have no power steering.
1. I just jacked the car up.
2. Grabbed a 8″ adjustable wrench and loosen the oil pressure sending unit. Some oil dripped out, but not much because there was no oil in the car.
3. I immediately inserted the new one.

I didnt know the torque specs for the sending unit. BUT, when Reconnecting the wires to the terminals of the new sending unit I broke a F#CKING ground terminal. THANK GOD it it snapped near the middle so I still could get the terminal on by rigging the bolts. Special thanks to Clark’s Garage.

Replacing Early 944 Automatic Transmission Lines Front

This was easy, especially since I replaced the fuel lines which was a pain in the a$$. I had seepage in the lines so I decided to go ahead and replace them since I had the car in the air.

1. Using a 19mm wrench, unscrew lines from radiator. You can unscrew the top bolt from the top and the bottom one from under the car. Have a rag or bucket for the transmission fluid that’s going to leak. Be sure not to damage washers. Replace if needed.
2. Pry the clamps of the hoses near the motor side. I used a hammer and a precision flat head screwdriver.
3. Using a razor, disconnect the metal fittings from old hose.
4. I used Hayden Cooling Transmission hose cooling kit from Pep Boys. Pic Below.
5. Clamp on the new hose to fittings
6. Screw fittings back into the radiator.
7. Clamp back on to the motor.
8. Turn car on and check transmission fluid.
