Argggggh.. Hand Throttle died!

Today, I decided to go for a drive in the 911, pulled up the hand throttle to start it and nothing happened. Gas pedal did not move. got it started after a bit of cranking but would not stay running with out feathering the throttle.


Pulled up handbrake cover and discovered the plastic piece is MIA. Found this thread:
forums.pelicanparts.com/porsche-911-technical-forum/639786-hand-throttle-lever-3.html

and this write up:

forums.pelicanparts.com/9457608-post115.html

Has anyone done this and how long/hard is it to do? I the shown procedure pretty complete?

If you pulled up the cover, the hard work is done, the new plastic piece Is a breeze to install, simply snap it in, and reinstall the cover. You shouldn’t even have to adjust the cable stop.

Harry,

I had the same trouble last year, that 2nd link should help, thatís the link I used when I replaced mine. If I recall it took less than a hour.

Cover was not removed. I just pulled up the rubber boot and peeled the carpet back. Here is a shot of the peep hole. The Hand throttle handle is pulled completely up. No plastic thingy is present. Does not move when I pull the handle.

I suppose I need to replace it.

As far as starting, just depress the accelerator pedal slightly, that’s all the lever does. When you get a chance replace the plastic part.

I had that part crumble years back. Part#90142431700
It can be a bit awkward changing it out. Here is one of a few threads on it.

Thanks Ed.

One question. Do I need to disassemble the handbrake/lever assembly or can I just peel back the carpet to access the 4 bolts, lift it out and replace the part?

It turns out my rubber boot has been torn since I got the car in 2002 so I decided to replace it as well. Hopefully I do not need to remove the plastic handles for the e-brake, heater, and throttle levers.

I had to replace mine in my 1973.5T. They will crack and crumble over time. No need to dissemble the handbrake assembly as it can be unbolted and moved enough to access the "claw". One word of caution though.....that little set screw that is tightened down on the cable(see the photo several responses up) can come out if you loosen too much and its a bear to retrieve down in the well! Once you attach the plastic claw you adjust that cable stop for proper hand throttle movement. I believe that you need to set it so when you pull up on the hand throttle you can achieve a steady 3500 rpm.

Bob.

Thanks for the info. My hand throttle has worked faithfully and correctly until yesterday. I am thinking no adjustment will be be needed but I will heed your warning if I need to tweak.

I ordered the parts today from my local Porsche dealer. Should be here next week.

Update

Success! Thanks for the support and encouragement.

I just completed replacing the broken hand throttle link.

The plastic piece was broken at both ends!

-I pulled the carpet back
-Removed the rubber boot
-Removed the three bolts holding down the hand brake/hand throttle lever/Heater Lever assembly
-Removed the Heater Lever from the assembly
-Fished out the broken plastic part
-Pulled the assembly out far enough to remove the circlip and washer from the hand throttle handle assembly
-Slipped on the new plastic part on and fasten with the washer and circlip.
-Reinserted the plastic part into the tunnel and hooked the throttle rod
-Bolted the hand brake assembly back into place
-Reattached the heater handle to the assembly
-Tested everything
-Slipped a new rubber boot over every thing (my old one has been torn since I got the car.
-Replaced carpet

Took a bit over an hour.
