there is a lever in the front compartment under the bonnet, adjacent to the headlight. I think the whole headlight unit comes out in one peace giving access to change the bulb. Pull or push on the lever whilst easing out the headlight unit.

Hello Johan
Your 1987 Porsche has transmission G50 only.You need to get clutch which comes with rubber centered clutch disc.You can get spring plate clutch disc but these will transfer the trany noise toward the front and you will not like it.So get the factory clutch.

If the car is getting power from the battery(lights turn on; radio turns on) when you turn the key, then it is your starter or gas distributor. To test that, you need to pour a little gas right in the hole where the engine and intake meet. Pour a little gas in that hole. If it starts up, then it is your gas distributor that is the problem not giving gas to the engine. If it doesn't start up with gas in the engine, then it is your starter. Either will be $100-$200 fix at a shop.

If there's enough room at the top of the window, have someone hold the window in place while you crank the window down to its' lowest position. Now lower the window a couple of inches and crank up until the window sits in the track. You may need to repeat this a few times to get it just right.

Hello there
Under the break fluid reservoir is the break master cylinder -there are two press.switches with two or (sometimes earlier wersion) three prong switches.
The second switch is the one you propably need to replace.(second-looking from front of the car)
To get to them you need to remove the black cover with 10mm socket wrench and flat screwdriver.
Remove (black plastic) air hose which is on top the master cylinder and then you can see the switches.
Before you replace the switch ,unplug the connector a insert a short wire into it.That will, with the ignition on, make your brake light go on.if yes replace the switch if not
