judgejon replied to Daniel Ortiz's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)MAF is my guess.
judgejon replied to Augustus Barone's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)You need a trip to the stealership. I had to replace a key earlier this year. Bring your credit card and a hanky. Look for about $400 or so. (ps: folks at Sonnen in Mill Valley were great and very helpful)
judgejon replied to BananaMobile's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)No personal experience with seat removal, but I have seen threads on the forum about this. The search engine will be your best friend on this issue I'm sure. good hunting...
Yep, just a dust cap.
judgejon posted a topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Info only. Just found out there is an updated version of Durametric to download. I believe it is to allow Macan interaction, but I believe it best to always be current. Found this out only because of classic air bag light that I had not seen in some time. I think Durametric is now 188.8.131.52
judgejon replied to BananaMobile's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)wish I could help with this, but I am stumped. how about checking for an in-line fuse on motor connection or anything else loose under the seat? good luck with this. I'd be interested in the solution. If it is a seat motor issue, I'd bet the passenger seat motors are interchangeable.
Wyovino is right I believe. This would keep some tension on the slider piece. But, still could be drag-chute release.
My best guess is that it serves as sort of a dustcover to prevent stuff falling into the shift track. slides back and forth with gearshift I'd bet. Could also be a sort of lock-out or pressured spring to prevent you from accidentally going into reverse. There was something like that on my 1968 Camaro. Alternatively, it could be the safety lock-out for the ejection-seat mechanism. Alternatively, it could be the parachute release lock-out for quick stopping assist when hard-breaking occurs over 145 mph. I think this was another of 573 options available on the car. Good luck from up northwards of you. Very cool to post the diagram and pic.
judgejon replied to thormann's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)another thought... I had to have window regulator replaced in drivers door as window was not lowering when door opened and was hitting the molding when closing. A bit of a pain.. Regulator assembly replaced and now window drops a little bit as it should, but makes kind of a thud sound when going up as door is closed. Might need an adjustment, but I'm for sure not taking door apart to do that. Maybe your sound is something like that? Kind of a thud from top of window area when door is closed and window goes back into fully closed position? Hope you figure it out. This kind of stuff drives me crazy too. Cheers,
judgejon replied to judgejon's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)replace MAF, don't bother to attempt to clean. Just a thought....
judgejon replied to thormann's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)my key only unlocks doors. there is a separate button for front compartment. 2003 C4$ are you sure the sound is not just the door lock mechanism? It's possible there is a loose part of the window regulator assembly that's getting bumped. This might involve the parts for the windows to drop down just a little bit when door is opened, and then go back up when door is closed. I'm not sure if windows also drop a little on opening door on a cabriolet. Possible. Good luck.
judgejon replied to judgejon's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)throttle body, butterfly, but mostly MAF are what this seems like to me. See Lorens post above on this thread. Good luck.
judgejon replied to Quaylon's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)could these be part of the optional mechanism for release of the speed-brake parachute in hard braking from over 125mph?
judgejon replied to auto-xr's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Right. 2010 indeed. Good to read the fine print. Cheers,
judgejon replied to auto-xr's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)might be good to replace the set while your at it. good luck
