Is the left and right flap supposed to both move? My right flap with the circular holes moves but the flap with the oval holes does not.

Yes both should move.

My 25year old was in town last week and borrowed the car to visit some friends. Went out there last night to get something from the car and noticed foam all over the interior...Oh boy. I thought the next project was going to be the new control arm links I recently purchased. I suppose that can wait.

probably because of too hot outside, he did full blast the AC fan that made the inner vent foam materials out of the system.

That's OK. Not her fault, and it is indeed HOT!

On the bright side she is 25 and can drive a stick...gotta be happy about that.

Hey all. The 2004 986 I acquired from a family member in Houston this summer has this issue I have started the "through the heater core" repair because it was leaking anyway.
Can someone give me details on how to get the bottom (footwell) door bushing out? I removed the screw and arm that actuates it, but it seems to be too stuck/attached to the door end to just drop off. Is there a clip to undo or maybe I have to pry it? Don't want to break it.

NEVERMIND. I figured it out. Had to leave the "arm" attached to it and use a interior trim prybar to pop it loose.

Thanks everyone.

I posted this question in the wrong place....sorry guys

Bits of foam are starting to come out off my vents.
Can I access the vent flaps using this through the dash method on my 05 box 987?
I am by no means a mechanic and hesitate to go through the front trunk.

Thanks

I'm pretty sure that it will work the same. I have not personally seen it in a 987, but someone quoted this method on another forum for Caymans. There won't be any harm in removing your console to take a look. I expect that the HVAC system is the same.
