  1. Past hour
  2. Can anyone explain how to clear the ant-drive off mode for a 97 986?? CLU got wet, Soaked it in alcohol and dried. Seems to have helped but now when I go to start the car it won't start. Fault code indicates it's in a anti-drive off mode, if I clear the fault it allows me to start the engine, if I leave the key in I can start it several times. Once I remove the key it goes back into the ant-drive off mode. Any and all info would greatly be appreciated, Thanks
  3. Today
  4. THANKS. I would like rear 295/35 so they are taller than front tires. There appears to be plenty of room for extra height.
  5. Front: 235/40ZR x 18 Rear: 295/30ZR x 18 These worked fine on my car (MY99 996 Coupe). My front wheels were 8" not the stock 7.5". I do not think you can go any wider on the front and very little on the rear.
  6. OK, Thanks. Can someone confirm that adding front 1/2 inch width and 1/4 inch height will clear without rubbing when turning? And that adding rear 1/2 inch width and 1.4 inch height will clear? Actually one half those numbers in/out and top/bottom.
  7. My memory is that the 285 is an all-season tire, and the 295 is a summer only, not M&S rated. Look for tire sizes on inside of gas flap.
  8. I have a 2003 Cabriolet with 18 inch stock rims. 225/40 front (25.1 inch tall) and 285/30 rear (24.7 inch tall). I would like to upsize slightly to 235/40 front (25.4 inch tall), and 295/35 rear (26.1 inch tall). I looks to me that I will not have any clearance problems, but this is my first Porsche, so I wanted to get advice. As it is now, rear tires look a little small. Plus I read somewhere that Porsche speedos read lower than actual. Thanks.
  9. yes, after going over everything that I touched when I cleaned the TB, it still was running bad. Took it to the local porsche indi guru. It turns out that the pipe from the airfilter to the MAF was broken. Very strange failure according to the mechanic. He fit it back together and now I am on a hunt for a replacement pipe. According to the mechanic, the pipe is sold in combo with the MAF so it is not cheap. I have to do some searching. I suspect the broken pipe was the original problem, and not the TB but the TB was due for a cleaning anyway so it wasn't wasted effort.
  10. Hi! I'm new here. English is not my native so sorry for all mistakes I make:) I wanted to remove air vents, because all of them are broken. I found this to 997.1: I found 2 metal pieces inside instead of 1, which i cannot see. I pushed them inside. I detached side part, and try to pull in. Unfortunetly i feel/see that only cover of the vents is moving. Can you help me? 🙂 Futerko
  11. I've just got a replacement head unit and the seller has told me they've misplaced the code card. Is there any chance this could be decoded? Type: CDR220 Model: BE4462 Serial: X5028269 Thank you very much if possible.
  12. So after a good long drive it's all running smoothly. No more cold start problem and idle when hot is smooth and consistent.
  13. Just to add, I left the airbag connected. Everything is accessible and there is slack on the airbag cable to cradle it on your lap that I don't believe you need to disconnect it unless you want to take the carrier frame out.
  14. I've just done the o-ring fix, worked brilliantly. Fuse back in, horn works evenly in all 4 corners of the wheel. My kids wanted to come test the horn too! Thanks Renntech members! There were 4 little washers under the carrier frame. I reinstalled these using a smear of paper glue to hold them in place while fiddling with the carrier frame and bolts. Order of assembly: washer, 1st o-ring, carrier frame, 2nd o-ring, 17mm bolt. For those in New Zealand, I ordered the o-rings online from Blackwoods NZ. They have all sizes and you can make up whatever quantity you ne
  15. Ya man, I like French Canadians. One of my best friends grew up in Montreal and went to Mcgill. I also dated a girl there that went to Mcgill. Met her when I was with him partying at cinq à sept down near Old Montreal. She was a cocktail waitress, I think the place was called Quartier (I just looked on Google maps and it's something else now), and thought I was a hockey player rolling with my entourage but I digress 😃 Anyway, back to your original topic before I got off on a tangent, please let me know if you use the breakout box later. I'm still curious other things you would
  16. Yesterday
  17. The fuses for the lighter and plug were bad. Replaced both; the manual spoiler switch still doesn't work....any ideas ?
  18. Can you explain a little more explicitly the procedure to sync the cylinders? One of mine always lags behind and gets further behind the higher I lift the car. I've replaced both cylinders to no avail.
  19. An interesting conversation we had! We can say that we are on the same wavelength, plus we love the same cars !!! Can you believe it, a French Canadian from Montreal and an American from New York discussing and understanding each other ... LOL !!! So many people can't get along these days ;-( Glad to have heard from you ... We will undoubtedly have the chance to discuss again on this forum ... Have a good weekend!
  20. Absolutely brilliant! Radio now fully operational. Thanks
  21. Loren, Please send lost radio code. Thanks, Michael CDR-220 BE4462 (996.645.126.00) X5016348
  22. Nah, all those 8000 km you are doing biking this year is going to leave your heart and body very strong so you will live a very long life 🙂 I was always in decent shape but lost 15 lbs when I started taking the bike to work and I get better marks every year on my biometric screening. When I got my life insurance policy I was disappointed to hear that everyone in the company pays the same rate, I was hoping my risk-adjusted pricing was going to be much better! Chevy Bolt is a fine car and the neighbors we are friends with behind us have one. A coworker also has one that I rode in
