  1. Past hour
  2. Thanks Loren for looking it up for me. However, that's not it though. The screw is a short sheet metal screw with a round phillips head.
  3. Today
  4. Likely 9A7 007 517 00 sheet metal screw 4.8x19 (updated part) -- US MSRP $0.39 each
  5. Actually the screws are fixing the center heatshiled #17 to #5 preventimg rattling. The rivets only fix #5 to #1. I couldn't find the screws in the catalog and I just wanted to make sure I didn't miss anything.
  6. I don't think it's going anywhere with 4 pop-rivets in the piece.

    Center Console

    It should work fine.
  8. I know hence my question :) Thanks for checking Loren. I lost two of them so I'm sure they exist, just not in the parts catalog haha
  9. Anyone know if a 99 Boxster Base console is interchangeable with a 03 Boxster S console? Thanks V
  10. The parts list just shows the 4 pop-rivets.
  11. So tonight I took it back out, forced it into the assembly unit and I can get everything to work except the Xenon and the directional Xenon. High beam and turn signal do work. Anyone have any ideas, what about a continuity test on the harness connector? The old connector had been giving sporadic/sputtering light up of the Xenon last weekend when I pulled it initially, when being forced into the assembly, not constant light-up.
  12. Hi all, 2006 Cayenne S started losing voltage from not driving so I replaced battery under seat.Car was sitting for 2 years.No battery is in the trunk.Car starts runs fine but..Car has no Nav screen,radio is very muffled sounding,only can change radio from steering wheel not pcm ,rear hatch does not work or click and ac /heat blower not working either.Key battery was dead so replaced battery and that does not work to lock unlock doors or hatch with new key battery either.Any one know where to start please? Ive tried 148 code and the main and trip press,and checked all fuses and pulled and replaced too.Any help is greatly appreciated!
  13. Anyone knows the part number of these 3 black screws? 2002 996 c2 [pic taken from Orient Express]
  14. Yesterday
  15. Thank you. I think that I will try that tomorrow. It is 26 miles to the Porsche dealer! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  16. Had the same issue with my 1999 which also had a new tank. After doing a pressure test on the cap, found it was defective which was the reason for the steam discharge. Bleeding the tank properly took me about 8 - 10 hours. After replacing the cap, and properly bleeding the system my problem was solved.
  17. Thanks for the reply! Do you know what the factory recommended bulb is? I live in a very hot climate, and I want to make sure I don't burn the lenses 🙂 Thanks!
  18. Yes even aftermarket Xenons are $700+ and this is not a good option. Pelican Parts may end up sending me another, but I am going to take it apart again and force it to seat first.

    Evans Coolant

    does anyone have any experience with Evans coolant in a 996TT. Secondarily... how easy or hard is it to completely drain the radiator and block?
  20. Cylinder scoring is a major problem on all alloy engines, particularly those with DFI fuel systems. It is not just limited to Porsches: Once this happens, you need a rebuild. Some of the major contributors to this is fuel puddling which washes the oil off the walls and piston skirts, again particularly on DFI engines, although it can occur on earlier injection systems as well. Allowing the engine to warm up helps, but the largest corrective measure you can take is quality oil (read high levels of ZDDP) and frequent changes. Sooty tail pipes is an early indication of this type of issue.
  21. Anything but a halogen bulb would require projectors, which means either totally different housings, or customizing yours. Just stick with the factory recommended bulbs.
  22. First check the fuse, then top off and/or flush w/ new steering oil (use a little hand pump to remove old oil from reservoir>add new while turning turning the steering wheel full clock LR>repeat until it looks clean) More detailed instructions around here somewhere. Hope this helps. -Matt
  23. I have a 2006 Cayenne S. The 12v adapters all remain powered on and the trailer brake controller also retains power indefinitely (until the vehicle detects low battery condition then it shuts off accessory power). The brake controller is a P3 wired into the factory tow package wiring harness. I am looking for a good way to change the behavior of the car so all the 12v adapters turn off and the trailer brake controller turns off when the car is off, parked, and locked. I use 12v adapters for charging and for bluetooth FM transmitter and don't like unplugging these devices 2x daily. I have the electrical schematics for the car but I don't know where to find writeups of the 'theory of operation' like you often get in other service manuals (honda, chrystler, etc.). So my first question is does porsche produce writeups like these? What are they called? and where do I find them? Unless of course somebody has already solved this issue?
  24. Yeah, my desire here is definitely to ensure proper lighting and the safest levels for both me the driver and the rest of the people on the road... Should I stick with halogen bulbs then? If so, what halogens will run cool enough to not cause browning/melting of my new clean lenses? If I really wanted to do an upgrade to some other form of light, do you have any recommendations for the upgrade? Is the Pelican Parts link I provided in the OP inclusive of the proper lens, or would any light other than the OEM halogen require the baking of the headlight in order to separate and replace the lens? Is there anyone on the forums or who I can contact that is willing to do this for a price? Thanks!
  25. I have had intermittent and lost connections (check dipped beam and turn signal not working) on both of my 06 cayenne S headlights. In my case the connectors do not seat deeply enough in the headlight due to wear/damage to the tray, headlight, and connector. Plastics do not stay the same shape forever so rather than buying new trays and headlights to fix the tolerance issues I put some self adhesive rubber (like foam tap) behind the connector on the tray to move the connector slightly forward so it pushes it more deeply into the headlight. I also put some deoxit on the contacts to help remove oxides and improve conductivity. If you have a connectivity problem this is certainly your cheapest solution as the alternative - trays are about 80$ each and the headlights range from 250$ for halogen to 1400$ for porsche zenon.
  26. This is the first time I have heard about the cylinder scoring issue. Seems the engine might wear faster than other engines in that regard. Do you think that longer warm ups (in addition to more frequent oil changes) would help with slowing the cylinder wear? I assume that most of the wear happens the moment you start the engine so a longer warmup probably doesn't matter. I have never been a believer or fan of oil or fuel treatments as they are not part of any official OEM service procedure (other than treating gas for water during long storage). However in this case do you think a product like redline SI-1 would help reduce startup wear? I have noticed an odd tappet/valve type noise from the engine that reminds me of engines without hydraulic valve lifters (like valve lash noise). The noise is mild and dose not change over the duration of a drive. It's nothing as severe sounding as a leaking hydraulic valve lifter (like a engine with fully leaked down lifters during starting). I've read this could be piston slap or it could be some sort of timing chain slap due to ignition timing. The engine does have a slightly rough idle but I have no loss of power, no codes, no smoke in the exhaust (although exhaust tips are rather sooty). I'm probably not going to dig into this issue too much yet but I'm interested in it from an academic standpoint.

    Wiring Diagram help

    Yes grid E188 exists in MY2000, but contextually it doesn't make sense, it's the pin 86 on same relay Re/Bl, not the pin 30 Yellow -- So I don't think that is it. Ironically there is an E188 connection as well, but it is the wrong wire to the same Relay (Re/Bl pin 86). Additionally, the page 19 schematic is wrong -- as it shows K48 connecting a Re/Bl wire to Start Lock, which is actually K158. (looks like the connections are transposed) On the MY99, in context -- the signal doesn't have the a split connection on the pin 50, Yellow wire seen on 1999 to E188. I'm wondering if that is also a schematics error on MY1999. Mike
