Porsche 993 C2 Wind Deflector

Hello,
I have recently managed to buy a second hand Porsche wind deflector for my 1996 993 C2. It came without installation or use instructions and, having just had a new hood, I am anxious not to damage it by installing or using it incorrectly.
 
If anyone can tell me where I could get the instructions or let me have a copy of their own instructions I would be most grateful.
 
Thank you,
 
Fraser Robinson

Hi Fraser, is it the genuine Porsche part 993-561-979-02 (or similar)? If so, you will need a parts kit to connect the deflector to the soft top supports. I think 993's that came with the deflector as a factory option came with pre-drilled holes in the supports to fix the parts kit on to. I have the basic instructions that came with the wind deflector but I'm not sure how helpful they will be if you need to drill the holes. Let me know what you need as I can take some photos of the holes and scan a copy of the instructions to you if it helps. Kind regards Paul

Hi Paul,
 
Thank you very much for your reply. I have just been looking to see if I can find a Parts Number on the wind deflector but without success. As you know it is quite a complicated mechanism and it looks identical to one I saw at a R19 meeting some months ago. Fortunately it came with the fixing kit, although I didn't know that it was separate from the deflector, and I have been a able to attach the fixing kit to the pre-drilled holes. The pivots are a bit loose and I suspect there is excessive bear in the two ball and socket joints and in what I think may be a locating pin which seems to be operated by an orange capped button.
 
I have attached some photos of the area where the orange indicator marks and the push button are located and hopefully this may enable you to confirm that it is a genuine Porsche part.
 
I would be most grateful if you could scan a copy of the instructions you have. I am hoping that this will tell me what position the wind deflector should be in for raising the roof and how to install the deflector into the fixing kit etc. The last thing I want to do is damage the deflector or the new roof by making assumptions and getting it wrong!
 
Thank you for your kind assistance.
 
Kind regards,
 
Fraser Robinson

Hi Fraser
 
It certainly looks like the genuine part to me. I assume that, below the orange casing, the wind deflector hanging arm is fixed to a small ball head which is screwed into the lower cabrio support? I'm struggling to attach my instructions, which I have scanned in pdf form, so it might be easier to email them direct if you could provide an email address. Alternatively you can give me a call on 07736880468 to share your email over the phone. I can also attach the relevant pages from the Porsche parts catalogue which gives details of all the parts that make up the complete deflector kit
 
Kind regards
 
PAUL

Good Morning Paul,
 
Thank you very much for your email. I can confirm that the wind deflector hanging arm is fixed to a small ball head which currently gives a fairly loose fitting and should probably be replaced.
 
I would be very grateful if you could send me the instructions and the relevant pages from the Porsche parts catalogue as I think that I may need to replace some of the parts in the near future. My email address is motoringmemorabilia@yahoo.co.uk. [I am a motoring book dealer].
 
Your assistance is greatly appreciated.
 
Kind regards,
 
Fraser
