  3. I did have the intake off with injectors pulled out (not out of the rail) on Bank 2 maybe they're not seated would that cause a misfire w blinking CEL? Also the front bolt on the fuel rail where it bolts to the intake was stripped. Hopefully this is a totally different issue than the lost timing on Bank 1.

    They are Porsche hoses.
  5. Hi Can someone help me where can I switch a 1999 996 ecu key immobilizer Europe or uk thanks
  6. Yes I did finally get a reading on the dipstick before I started the engine. The timing did indeed slip, was off on bank 1 where the noise was. Was not a pleasant sound,,thought maybe it was the tappets so I ran the engine with some revs to pump up the tappets(idle only with some revving). Then realized the timing slipped.Reset the timing, fired it up and sounded fine ..noise gone BUT..idled up to temp thru a blinking CEL then it changed to a solid CEL. Codes were; Po300 Po 304-5 and 6 Po 150 Confusing why it's showing misfire on cyl 4 5 and 6 when the noise and timing issue was on cylinders 1 2 and 3 (bank 1). If I bent anything up shouldn't it be misfiring on bank 1? This is making me hopeful that maybe I didn't cause any head damage by running the engine with the tapping noise thinking maybe I had to pump up the tappets. I installed NGK IRIDIUM plugs should I switch to OEM plugs, I'm going to double check coil pack connections maybe I crossed them but I don't think the wire length would allow that. I also replaced the 10w-40 with 0w-40. The Po150 code is o2 for bank 1. Any idea where to go from here? Please chime in. v
  7. It just rests in there. There's a groove along the edges that the original piece was molded to fit into. My 3D print has some bits that fit into that same groove to hold it in place.
  8. That's a super cool offer! How does it clamp down to the locking mechanism? Does it just sit on top or are there some kind of clips?
  9. Thanks! If you already have a 3D printer and filament, it's really only a few cents worth of material to print. If anyone here needs one, I'll happily make one for them for the cost of shipping. Only takes about an hour to print.
  10. I don't smoke, but I'd like to retrofit the smoking package for the door and extra 12v socket. I ordered the ashtray module and a harness but would love some advice on where the harness plugs in. I assume under the center console somewhere? Thanks in advance!
  11. Yesterday
  12. It was the harness for the engine lamp. Plugged it in and it works. Thanks.
  13. Very nice design. How much would say it costs to produce this piece?
  14. Hey Red, Long time no see. thought it was the light connector. My inde relies on me to remember to plug it back in. Cheers, j
  15. I worked on this again and I cannot get that bolt out. It snapped flush with the cover. I tapped and drilled a hole for an extractor. I get good bite with the extractor but it will not budge and I'm afraid I'm going to break the extractor off if I try harder. I've tried heating it as well. So now I'm not sure what to do. Maybe take it to a machine shop? I don't feel comfortable going larger with the drill bit and retapping as I don't know how much mass I'm working with around the screw. Even though I used a center tap, I am slightly off center as well since the bolt snapped leaving one side slightly higher than the other. Any other thoughts?
  16. It's the engine compartment light connector.
  17. thanks for all recommendations ! The complete list with approved tires as well as knowing there are cheap alternatives too is very helpful. I will likely avoid the khumo’s ( i had the chance to test such when i got those along with a set of spare rims for my 911 , and found traction aweful ...). The p-zero’s seem a good alternative to me now. Bridgestones were installed on my CTTS prior i got it (the first owner had all work done at p-dealer, and i assumed they installed approved tire- and which the tsb seems to confirm). The main reason i wanted to stick to bridgestones is due to good traction, very good wear behavior and good price ( ~250 @tirerack before they stopped selling them in sept) ). however, thanks once more to all for your input!
  18. I think this is for either the third brake light in the spoiler, or more likely the engine compartment light. The spoiler light is only activated when the spoiler is in the raised position. The engine compartment light should come on when lid is open. Alternatively, it could be the emergency speed brake parachute release connector. Chute deploys at hard braking from above 145mph.
  19. Loren, I have done some more searching and think the wiring colors may be consistent with the engine compartment lamp - does that make sense to you? Thanks.
  20. Last week
  21. If you have a 996 Targa you'll know that the little rubber piece that covers the rear glass' latch tends to degrade and fall apart. I designed a replacement piece that you can 3D print. Just make sure that you use PETG or ABS plastic so it doesn't melt when your car is sitting out in the sun. I'll probably get some filler primer and some matte black paint to make it match the rest of the trim, but I think it turned out pretty well. I don't know how much a genuine replacement costs, but it was a fun little exercise for me. Download for FREE here: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3287876 Enjoy!
  22. If your third brake is in the spoiler then yes - if your third brake light is in the back window then no.
  23. Just to clarify one wire is Red/Light Purple or Blue and the other is not solid brown. I think the other is Brown/Red. Loren - based on your wiring diagram it does not appear to be related to the spoiler. Could it be something else tail gate related? Third brake light, engine fan, etc. Happy to supply more pictures if that helps.
  24. In my experience the most common failure is at the washer pump. Easy replacement DIY. Buy your new one from Amazon or Pelican for $10 to $20 - most German cars use the same pump so there's many manufacturers out there - I bought a Continental one as I believe they are the OEM manufacturer.
  25. I am uploading a close up picture (see attached), but there are two wires. One is brown which I assume is the ground and the other is red/light purple striped. Thanks for your continued help!
  26. Sorry, can you tell me the number of wires and the color code of each wire?
  27. yes double checked after codes showed up since the Druamatic cannot read this transmission used infrared temp gage on the pan, used level on door sill to ensure car level.
  28. No it doesn't have an aerokit or fixed wing spoiler.
