  3. Good job! Coils definitely cracked all over the place. Spark plugs look worn but good as far as no unusual problems. Glad to hear you are replacing all coils/spark plugs. Your car will run much better.
  4. Ummm...hopefully after almost 8 years (auto-xr last post on December 20, 2010) he figured it out.
  5. Porsche stopped printing service manuals in 2006. All technical service information is in PIWIS. A PIWIS lease runs about $18,000 per year. Ask away here lots of knowledgeable folks here to help.
  6. Try this: https://www.onlinecarparts.co.uk/spares-search.html?keyword=996+352+401+04 If you enter the part numbers you listed in your first post it'll come up with the discs available. Some of the listed discs have the drawings with dimensions, click on those and it'll zoom.
  7. might be good to replace the set while your at it. good luck
  8. Im on a hunt for a good '11 PTT service manual. If anyone can provide insight I will be eternally grateful. Thank you.
  9. looks like I have an 11 turbo on my mind. if things go smooth, i will be driving it home next Saturday. Need to get a hold of a good service manual, so i can look it over and start maintain right away.
  10. The bank 2 is drivers side in the us and if you remove the front panel under the car you can reach up through the sway bar and the radiator and get a wrench in spark plug wrenches don’t actually work but it is 22mm wrench the part number is from Bosch is 17157 for passenger side front and 17158 for drivers side or bank 2 sensor 1 good luck it help if you remove the air box by the way when replacing the 02 sensor for bank 1 sensor 1 passenger side I have no experience with bank 2 sensor 1 but will be attempting it this weekend

  15. I would replace spark plugs and coil packs. The car is 16 years old - plastic is going break. If the coils test well now they may not after being hit with water. I would not put coils like that back in a car - it's just asking for future problems.
  16. ABS PSM Fault code 4460

    Benjamin, I've been battling this same problem for years. For the most part, I've just given up on the ABS/PSM system with regard to my needs. The car's grip is so good that, after years of driving without ABS/PSM, I know that I don't "need" it. But, I also know that any future buyer of my car will want it. So, I keep searching for a fix. Every time the car exceeds approximately 30 mph for the 1st time following start, the 4460 error is set. I've read somewhere that the car does a diagnostic test at 30 mph or so. I'm not sure what this diagnostic is testing -- haven't been able to identify. I've taken actions similar to you... I replaced my hydraulic block, which means a new booster pump too. Exchanged multiple pressure sensors. Had my ABS ECU electronics re-manufactured by BBA in addition to buying used ABS ECUs. I've replaced my brake light "switch" (plunge switch by pedal) at least once. I even replaced the ABS return pump. I just tested my pressure sensor and it appears fine. The ECU/ABS delivers a 5.0V source and ground as expected. Signal values are perfectly plausible. 0.6V signal at rest (0 bar pressure), which is close to the expected 0.5V you'll find in the Bosch pressure sensor tech sheets. Max applied brake pressure produces a signal of 2.0V or so, which is about 100 bar or 1,400 psi -- values that are exactly as expected for modern vacuum-boosted brake systems. Pics of my test attached... https://photos.app.goo.gl/Svuu1va0VrF07UWx2 The crazy part of all this... I don't think there is any problem with my ABS/PSM system. The 30 mph diagnostic test will time out, meaning the error isn't set if you idle the car long enough before hitting 30 mph. I've done this on purpose and taken the car on local gravel roads to purposely cause massive sustained slip in acceleration (like 5 to 10 seconds sustained). PSM works just fine... Dash light blinks away and the car stays perfectly straight under WOT on loose gravel. Same result for deliberate ABS activation on gravel -- ABS activates and car is perfectly well behaved. So, I've pretty much concluded that the 30 mph diagnostic test -- whatever it is -- is the source of the problem itself. I wish I could figure how to disable it or rig a solution around it. Of course, I have yet to find anyone that really understands this system and the available information is so limited, I'm not sure I'll ever solve this issue. John
  17. uSo I took the rear of the car apart (person who designed this should be shot), to access the coils and plugs. So far, have only done bank 1. This is what I found. Look like there are some cracks. Hard to tell if they are fatal cracks or just surface issues. There are more pictures of the cracks, but for some reason, I get errors loading them. These are also also the plugs that I replaced.
  18. Spot on creekman, that’s just the kind of stethoscope I was thinking of. Simply listening to the various engine noises doesn’t raise any concerns, but it’s all a bit loud back there! However, I just spoke to a friend at my local country pub, he’s a Mercedes specialist for his sins, who says the “evaporator” can make weird noises when the a/c system pressure is too low. I think his evaporator might equate to dessicator/receiver-dryer in Porsche-speak and my original view that the noise came from the firewall area might tie in with the location of that bit of kit. So your original suggestion of doing the re-gas first is what I think I’ll now do. I’ll feedback when I’ve done that. Cheers, Steve
  19. 97 Boxster crank no start

    Those codes are the key and the people who are trying to help you have collectively thousands of Boxsters experience and the manuals to help you if you help them. POST THE CODES.
  20. The window on my 99 Boxster was crunching and grinding, as the regulator cable shredded itself. Took the regulator apart to see how it works, and saw that every part of the regulator was fine, except the cable. I trimmed the frayed ends and put it all back in, and it works fine, for now, but I should replace it, as the cable is at 2/3rds strength and more prone to shredding if I missed a strand here or there. Shame to spend $270-$300 for a new regulator to replace a $20 or $30 cable, and I'm reluctant to buy a used one online... Waiting to see if Woody on the 986 forum has a good used one for me. I see just now there is a cable replacement in the UK for $50+US... Can anybody explain what these cotter pins are about, next tot he motor? Can you pull them out, one by one, to adjust the tension as the cable stretches? Just guessing...
  21. Steve, Why not run the compressor take a long screwdriver and put the pointy end on the compressor and the big end in your ear and see what you hear...
  22. BigMic,I

    I assume this is how I PM you.

    Are you selling your Porsche Roof Transport System?

    Attached is a picture of my 2000 Millennium Edition 911 that is now my daily driver.

  23. I think I’ve now ruled out the blower fan. With the engine off the blower is as smooth and quiet as you like, at all fan speeds. With engine running and a/c off it’s fine too, but switch on the a/c and after a few seconds a new slightly harsher sound becomes apparent. (All this is with the car stationary). I’ve checked out the cooling fans and they seem fine, so I’m now thinking it could be noise transmitted from elsewhere, maybe the a/c compressor - that would account for the varying pitch of the whine when I’m on the move. Have run out of time today, but I think the next step is to look in the engine bay before I have the a/c re-charge is done.
  24. I got rid of my 996 last fall. Have a roof transport system. It was great! DM me.
  25. 97 Boxster crank no start

    No, the CPS is just a sensor. It sends a signal back to the DME.
  26. 97 Boxster crank no start

    So can the DME shut off the CPS signal? I had the car scanned and it has a scary amount of codes which most are DME related.
  27. Steve, Probably won't fix the problem, but it's worth the shot... Keep us posted.
