Year and make of car? Open relief valve flap by moving it straight up (yellow arrow below shows it down) and drive bringing the temp up for a while. Another thought might be if you may have a diverter flap in the heater core that lost it's foam. The flap diverts the air from the heater or from the air conditioner depending on what is called for. Do you have grey/blackish bits of foam coming out of your vents or on the floorboard? If there is no foam covering the flap the heat can't get diverted to the ductwork.

When you push the Central Locking Switch (upper right rocker switch on horseshoe) do you also get the double beep? error code Fault indication A double horn signal during locking indicates a defect in the central locking or alarm system, Have the defect remedied at an authorized Porsche dealer. I replaced mine last weekend after putting up with double beep and passenger window not dropping all winter long . I called Sunset Porsche and got a new door lock. The difference in pricing is key activated door locking. If you have that, for the passenger door, you'll need: part#: 3B1-837-016-P The price is $350.66 list and $320.99 net (with discount) plus shipping. No sales tax in Oregon.
I finally got around to swapping out the carpet on the lower interior doors and replacing it with leather. Tim Austin wrote an excellent DIY article in 2008 and can be found HERE Driver's Door with old faded carpet. Driver's door showing beat up carpet around speaker grill. Driver's door with panel removed. Putting on new leather on passenger's door with added red leather trim and red grill accent. Passenger's Door on re-installation showing finished project and new leather upgrade.
I tried spraying some WD-40 behind the belt pulley on the alternator and the sound instantly improved but soon returned. I decided to replace it rather than put everything back together only having to redo it later on.
You should hear the wheel bearing even if you weren't rounding a corner. Is the noise front or back/ right or left? Did you pick up anything that might be hitting or touching the wheel well covers on tire rotation or on turning? I recently replaced my rear wheel bearings and the sound was like a warped rotor grinding every rotation of the tires on the brake disc pads.
Replacing the oil filler tube in tight quarters is tough. I would start with chasing every vacuum hose to see if one came loose! Also, when I swapped out an oil filler tube once the dipstick tube also needed replacement. You can cut out a section and slice in surgical tubing in it's place.
kbrandsma replied to hugo kohl's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Unless you used a vacuum fill to refill the water/anti-freeze after after your waterpump replacement. You may have had some air in the lines. Top it off and monitor water level. Maybe flip your bleeder valve up till all air has escaped.
I recently chased down a noise on my '98 986. With the belt off the noise went away. Every thing like rollers, water pump, alternator all spinned freely. With the belt back on and a $10 stethoscope from "Harbor Freight" , I deduced that the noise was coming from the alternator's front bearing. I took it to a local auto electrical shop and had it rebuilt for $125. Problem solved.
