  3. How about I revive my old thread? Yes, my hardtop is an S version and has the titanium strip in the window gasket. The strip is sun damaged to brown ... anyone know of a replacement for that plastic "chrome" from some other source that would fit and look good?
  4. Hi Dherrick, The green connector you are referring to should be 32pins. From my old notes the there are two MFGs that make that connector, Tyco and AMP. The MFG part number I have is this is for the green cover. The inner part # that would need two to complete the unit. I have found some dealers that might have them in the USA. If not they they look like they are available in Europe you will need to call around. https://octopart.com/1-929409-1-te+connectivity-45284620 1-929409-1 Price & Stock | DigiPart WWW.DIGIPART.COM 1-929409-1 Price, 1-929409-1 Stock, Buy 1-929409-1 from electronic components distributors.

  5. On my 09 S w/ Bi-xenon there’s fuses for each headlight behind the cabin dash side panels. Maybe check there?
  6. Hi, does anyone happen to know the torque spec of those fuel injector nuts and the nut on the input line? I had looked around and didn't seem to find any. Any help is greatly appreciated. BTW, it's a 09 Cayenne S. Thanks.
  7. Resurrecting an old thread. Has anyone found a solution or a supply for the instrument cluster connectors for the 996/986? The part number referenced above is no longer available. The parts guy at a Porsche dealership said that 996s are now considered classic cars so I'm on my own. I believe that the OEM connectors were made by Tyco. My green connector fell apart when I was replacing my instrument cluster after replacing the time adjustment and trip meter shafts. The locking arm broke so I tried using duct tape to seat, however that is apparently not sufficient to establish a good contact, as I get multiple failure warnings when I start the car. Thanks in advance
  8. It is always helpful if you tell us the exact model and year of the car.
  9. A ShoreTel Solution Architect is a professional who will put in use the technical expertise and ShoreTel proficiency in a customer facing environment. They must be efficient to handle the designing and proposing ShoreTel On-premise, Cloud and Hybrid solutions. The architect should be able to provide necessary support in managing additional technical resources for meeting the account needs

  10. My first Porsche and first repair. Ordered CD repair manual but will be a week. Lost power steering and found a 1/8th inch by about 1.5 foot long broken round belt under car. Is this the kind of belt that would be on a steering pulley? Can an online vendor to purchase be recommended? TY.
  11. CDR 220 serial number 15040022. Need radio code please.
  12. Last week
  13. You haven't said what year the car is, so I don't know if it is a 3 or 5 chain engine; if it is the five chain, I would be looking at the wear pads on the short chain between the cams. These are well known for wearing prematurely and causing out of spec deviation values.
  14. I just drove it for an hour in two directions and got the same reading.... I have been checking the oil and I see no debris on the last 3000 miles. I think I am just going to swap out the bearing it is going to have to be done anyway. I just don't get the 0.0 reading it is like nothing is being read. I don't think I am going to drive the car until I swap out the bearing. I thought ran great. What is your recommendation?

    Have a hardtop for sale for 996. Forum threads here have indicated that they will fit 997 Cabriolets if you acquire the rear receivers. The 997 Cabriolets Hardop receivers are "screw type", they are threaded and do not have a spring involved to keep tension. I have a set of 996 Bayonnet receivers to sell for additional cost if you need for 997, or a 996 ordered with "hardtop delete" option from the factory. First is a 2002 Polar Silver 996 top with Black interior, original hardware (Bayonet posts on the top) does not include a front latch cover. From the photo you can see it is not a perfect match for arctic silver. Small exterior dent above the rear window, can be pressed out from inside. I will send pictures if interested. Rear Window Defrost works great.Also for full disclosure, the previous owner scratched up the black trim below the windshield by standing it up on its end without anything underneath it, will need a respray. Price is $350 or would consider a trade for Valentine 1, tire(s) or 996 accessories, let me know what you've got. I may be up for trading interiors for another color if you need black. Located in 40223, I will discuss delivering within a 150 mile range from me if we make a deal and you prepay. (Indianapolis, Cincinnati, Nasvhille, possibly others...) Also available - Guards Red from a 2002 cab, with Grey interior. This unit has the later 997 screw type posts on it, and will not fit Bayonet receivers. Includes latch cover. Price is $600, and I will arrange the same delivery option with prepayment. Can convert to Bayonnet style posts for an additional cost. Since I have 2, I may be up for swapping mounting hardware if you are interested in one or the other and need other than what is mounted already. Thanks for looking, I don't always see updates to this thread but you can PM me with any questions.


  16. In case others see this. In my case (997 4S cab) vacuum comes from the engine near the drivers side (left) rear wheel well. My vacuum pipe had broken off at this point. Doing so stopped the PSE/Tuning flaps but also meant at startup that vacuum was reduced to the brakes causing them to be less effective initially. From the design, it looks like this point is a weak point in the vacuum system and can easily break off. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  17. It's luck. A lot of things Porsche does is driven by the bean counters, making all the early 986's standard with cruise and OBC, but without activating these systems or installing controls to operate them was a cost driven concept, as Porsche believed that these systems would be popular enough to trigger many "post delivery" activations and dealer control retrofits, and that the factory could charge as much for the options post delivery as they did if they were ordered when the car was built. Two things they did not count on was someone would develop a cost effective alternative to the PSIT II or PIWIS systems that could switch them on, and that courts would rule it was unfair to charge full boat for a hidden option that was actually given away with the car in the first place. Once that happened, Porsche stopped shipping all the cars with these capabilities built in. So getting one with it, that can show anything without adding the fourth stalk was luck...….…………...
  18. Here is another forum thread with some good pictures and details DIY: 996 Door Latch Replacement [Detailed] - Rennlist - Porsche Discussion Forums RENNLIST.COM 996 Forum - DIY: 996 Door Latch Replacement [Detailed] - If your window does not stay lowered when your door is open, chances are that a switch within the door latch has gone out. This is a detailed procedure to change...
  19. Have you tried an e-gas calibration? Turn on ignition to ON (not start). Wait 60 seconds. You should hear some whirring noise from the engine bay as the Throttle Body runs through a calibration cycle. Turn ignition off, then start as normal. The second thing that comes to mind is the change over in the resonance flap.
  20. Durametric pro is a great tool. Nice that my local PCA has them. Done on mine and a few others. So there’s a misconception. It even worked on a 997 and 987, 99-O4 986 and 996.2 i woukdnt call it luck. It’s Porsche being lazy.
  21. Just wanted to reach out and get some input on which new LED headlights and tail were the best out there for my 2003 911 4S. Please provide any and all information if possible. Thanks for you help in advance. Todd
  22. I noticed this week that under hard acceleration 4th and 5th gear when i get to 5000 rpm it drops down to 4000 rpm, and then climbs, when i shift to 5th same thing hit 5000 drops to 4000. 2001 carrera 996 Ideas/thoughts?
  23. You're right. I re-read a bunch of posts on various forums after pulling the latches and have a better understanding of what I'm dealing with. There are essentially three groups of switches: inner door handle, outer door handle, and door latch/lock. Within the latch mechanism, there are two more switches in the passenger door and four on the drivers side. One of the common switches senses if the door is locked or not. The other common switch senses if the door is latched closed and is mounted on a wire to the mechanical side of the latch mechanism. This is the one that failed on my car so I'm going to need to replace it. The two switched on the drivers door latch that are not on the passenger side senses if the mechanical key lock is locked or not. It rides on a cam that actuates the cam that closes the common switch that senses if the door is locked or not. Some helpful threads: This helped me understand the three switch groups. http://www.rennsportkc.com/boxster996-window-issues/ This helped me identify the switch that senses when the door is closed or not (failure #3 in the rennsportkc post) https://forums.pelicanparts.com/6457649-post6.html Sourcing an inexpensive replacement latch by using parts from a VW: https://grassrootsmotorsports.com/forum/tech-tips/porsche-986-996-door-latch-replacement-with-vw-part/151397/page1/
  24. Actually, the stalk does matter, depending upon the year of the car. On many cars, just activation of the OBC system will show nothing; it requires either retrofitting the stalk or a similar toggling device before the display goes active. In your case, you got lucky.........
