Intro: Remote Control in a 944

Here I show how to install a remote for iPod w/Dock-connector in a Porsche 944 (2nd Gen.,the ones w/the oval Dashboard.
iPod is connected via FM-transmitter and hid (when in car) in center armrest.
My wife does not like all the music I like,i.e. Country.
So I decided to install a remote in case she might want to skip to next Song. I must concentrate on the road, not look for Songs or argue w/my sweety.

I bought some of this foam products but don t remember the name.
I cut out the right form to fit the iPod and hold the transmitter.
But his tutorial is onlyabout the remote(sorry for the dirt)
But now to list.
You ll need:

*iPod
*remote
*Screwdriver
*cutter
*glue (the best these heated glues)
*Porsche 944

Step 1: Getting Out Console

Get to the car.

Remove the radio.

Remove the ashtray.

Remove the armrest by unscrewing the 2 bigger screws at the end of it and the 2 small ones where the ashtray was.

Remove the console with its switches by unscrewing the 2 screws near ashtray and 2 near Radio.
Disconnect the switches.

Leave car ;-)

Step 2: Cutting the Hole

Get to your room, take out the cover of switch.

Measure the remote s head and cut out alike.
Mine I got for 10 Bucks in germany at pearl.de.

Step 3: Install

Use glue to connect remote and make it stay.
Let dry, then go to car again.

Step 4: Finish

Hide cable under console and armrest, make sure the end of cable is at the end of armrest.
Put everything 2gether and enjoy.

It should look like this:

    Damn, I thought you were going to show how to rig the car itself for remote driving. That would be sweet. A little scary, but sweet.

    Mine has the same stock engine, but a broken clutch... :-P The fluid reservoir exploded when I was moving the car once. Hydraulic fluid was all over the inside of the engine bay...
