Q:   As I leaned on the console of my 89 944, the top of the cover slid off the console when the hinge broke. I tried rigging it through various means but it always breaks again. – Fred

A:   Fred there is no good fix for that hinge except to replace it. It comes as a whole assembly but last time I checked, you could buy that part from the dealer for less than thirty dollars. It seems like a lot for a piece of formed plastic but it pales in comparison to some of those plastic parts on the newer cars. – MC
