These articles relate to the 928 hatchback.
I am interested in more information for this portion of Biblio-Porsche. If you have an article to which you have reproduction rights (so I can include it in full), or have a reference to send me, drop me a line.

Date: Fri, 20 Nov 1998 14:16:35 -0500 X-Message-Number: 22 Ok, I've BTDT. So, let me give you the drill. Is the motor attached to the hatch release? You will have to take the tool cover and feel around to confirm they are attached via a metal bar. Is the release pushing the nylon release pivot? I used a black magic marker to blacken the white nylon piece to confirm the hatch release was striking the nylon and where. Observe that when the hatch closes that the male hatch mechanism is centered in the female piece, If they are not in alignment the hatch the hatch release could be hitting the metal. This will cause the symptoms you wrote about. It will also possibly crack the male piece like mine -(. Rule: The farther away the motor is from the hatch the farther out the hatch release lever will move. You will note the motor is bolted to the car via a pair of slotted holes. According to the manual the correct way to adjust the position of the motor is the loosen the two mounting 10MM bolts close the hatch. The position it is in should be the correct position. I finally got mine to work after I replaced the motor and shimmed the lockset to get better contact with the release.
