How would it come over on you, if one gives you "as a workshop" beside the car, a "workshop manual" ?

  • After I wanted to give my 28er with my "electrical problem" to my workshop and the "fearfully" refused ("Oldtimer, rather not") I want to take it to a classic car workshop.

    An acquaintance of mine gave me the tip to give a workshop manual, suitable for the type with.

    But I don't want to make myself unnecessarily unpopular. - If you imagine you work as a mechanic in a workshop and a customer brings a workshop manual with the car, how would that come across to you? - "Meaningful", or "What does he need a workshop manual for? Does he think we are so stupid that we can't do it without one".

    A Porsche sometimes brings funny reflexes ("The rich A... probably thinks we won't make it otherwise").

    Unthinking "to make oneself unpopular", can bring disadvantages ...

    Therefore, the question to you.

  • I haven't read up on what kind of electrical problem you have, but there's certainly nothing wrong with providing your electrician with a schematic. All the information you have yourself or what has already been done where will help in troubleshooting. So you certainly do not need to worry about that.

  • I already did that when it came to the complete overhaul of the ATG.

    ATG was not a problem for them, but the specific technology around it was.....

    This is quite normal among technicians......

  • Hello

    I always do it like this. I copy the relevant pages and hand them in.

    It is good if the mechanic has more information. Maybe it saves him unnecessary work or even mistakes.

  • Hi,

    It always depends on who the vehicle comes to, in a PZ or at Porsche Classic I would consider it superfluous.

    But otherwise it is rather helpful, because even workshops do not always have access to all documents.

    I myself have printed out a report from the forum for wheel alignment and enclosed it for the correct suspension height....

    Was also well received and implemented.
