Climfort Blinkers

Without going into the detail/merits of it, I'd like to add one touch comfort blinkers, to my 986.

Has anybody done it and/or does anybody know of a kit for the Porsche?

Similar to:

Thanks,

James

I find that by changing my blinker fluid at indicated intervals I can avoid problems with my blinkers and keep them working smoothly.

I have better luck with replacing the stock hardware with genuine blinker bolts imported from Italy.

The big question is, are you using genuine Porsche blinker fluid.
Hey, and make sure you're topping off with xenon headlight fluid instead of halogen...

Sorry, OP, I couldn't resist.

helps you get even fatter by not requiring you to hold the turn signal when making lane changes.

This isn't that uncommon. I had a Jetta and I now have an Audi that has this feature as standard equipment. Blinks 4 or 5 times when you push the lever in the direction and release it. Of course, you can have it lock on like all turn signals. I find I don't use it all that much.

So I guess the answer is no. You haven't done it and you don't know of a kit and you don't know how to do it.

Oh well, at least you guys had fun!

For those occasions when the fluid runs low, you can always use the old analog method:

The first VW Bugs had 10 inch pieces of metal built into the body at window level just behind the doors that actually dropped down, perpendicular to the body to indicate a left or a right-hand turn. They apparently weren't very helpful in signalling traffic that you were going to turn because they became known at "machs nix stix" to the Germans.

There were a lot of early cars that had mechanical turn signaling devices. They are called "semaphores" and if you are old enough to remember those you probably are getting your senior discounts on everything.

But what if you want to turn while signaling?
