  1. Labor rates vary with geography, so you will have to check them locally. Figure on 4-6 hours, plus parts. A full clutch kit (disc, pressure plate, throw out bearing) should retail in the $400-500, assuming your dual mass flywheel is still good. If it isn't, add $1K. You should update the RMS while doing this, and it is also a great opportunity to retrofit the IMS while it is apart.
  2. That is pretty much correct, the exact location varies a bit by model and equipment. And no, a bad pump won't necessarily loose fluid. You carpets should pull right up once the edge trim is removed.
  3. No, it is not the brake booster. ABS/PSM systems have their own hydraulic pump in the system, which is also one expensive bear, around $2K at retail (item #1):
  4. OK then try this video: How to change a 991 air filters This is for 2112+ 991 cars.
  5. Exactly the same as the last time you asked in 2015: The following procedure is for Boxster only. Removing and installing multi-function switch Removal 1. Hold engine by transport shackle in installed position with special tools 10 -222A and 9591/1 2. Remove the left catalytic converter. 3. Detach selector lever cable from deflection lever and transmission support. 4. Place transmission jack under the transmission. 5. Remove the left transmission support with hydraulic mount. Note: The fastening nut M12 © must not be loosened. The transmission support will otherwise be damaged. A -Transmission support B -Hydraulic mount C -fastening nut M12 6. Release and disconnect cable connection to multi-function switch. 7. Unscrew fastening screws and pull switch off the selector shaft. Installation Install in the reverse order. Put multi-function switch on the selector shaft. The flat point on the serrations in the switch (3) must lie against the flat point on the selector shaft (1). Note: Place multi-function switch on the selector shaft. Do not tilt or use force: you may damage the switch contacts. 2. Turn switch until the fitting bore (4) can be put on the dowel pin (2) on the transmission housing. Tightening torques Multi-functions witch to transmission housing -- (M6) = 8 Nm (6 ftlb.) Transmission prop to transmission housing -- (MID) = 65 Nm (48 ftlb.) Hydraulic mount to carrier side section -- (M8) = 23 Nm (17 ftlb.)
  6. Do a search, servicing the 991 air filters has been covered before. Not fun, but doable.
  7. More often than not, when we get a car in with this problem post DIY ignition switch install, the owner knocked one (or both) of the pedal switch connections loose.
  8. To put the oil source in perspective, the cylinder heads are one of the hottest and dirtiest sources of oil. There have also been reports of lifter noise and VarioCam problems when oil is drawn from the head, both of which problems went away when the oil feed line was disconnected. The actual reason only one retrofit kit manufacturer uses oil coming from the filter is that this method is protected by a patent; but the filter area oil is both cooler and just filtered as well. If it wasn't patented, others would use it as it is a better oil source.
  9. OK, my next move would be to have the car scanned with a Porsche specific scan tool and look at the actual coolant temperature values to make sure they are were they should be. If everything is good, I would read and note all codes, then clear them and see if they return. We have seen fault codes are P2181 (thermostat stuck open) and P3081 (engine coolant temperature implausible) on GT cars caused is a blocked valve on the trans cooler (photo), but your car should not have that.
  10. Not sure, he could have replace the thermostat, which is different.
  11. The vehicle will code because the pump is in effective. Usually the valve sticks due to build up, but they can fail electrically as well.
  12. Only for shops, or individuals, who did not follow through on the process and register the retrofit. We see cars regularly for PPI's that claim to have an LN retrofit, but without supporting paperwork from the shop that did it, we totally discount the claim and warn the buyer as much. The problem with retrofits (excepting the IMS Solution, which is visually obvious) is no provenance, no value; which also means that the buyer now needs to factor doing the retrofit into the price, lowing it further. LN has been proactive in supporting end users than have one of their retrofits. After years of unsupported claims, and even some history of counterfeit door jam stickers, now they have useful tool for buyer's and sellers that went with installers that did the job right and protected their interests.
  13. Misfire codes

    P0446 is for an EVAP shutoff valve malfunction, usually because the purge like is blocked. It has nothing to do with the cams.
  14. Misfire codes

    Being emissions related codes, they could to preserve the three way cats.
  15. I would connect a Porsche specific scan tool and check the actual coolant temperature readings, you may have a bad coolant temp sensor.
