judgejon replied to Westie's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Ok, smog check VW style emissions checker cheater plug? still could be drag chute factory option 😁
judgejon replied to Westie's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Factory option speed-brake parachute release.
judgejon replied to mjbiegs's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Ps: filler flap is only locked when car is locked. Otherwise just push on right side of flap to open. There is no push and release type latch like on Bmw.
judgejon replied to mjbiegs's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Search engine will be your friend. Threads on this one I believe. My car had a flimsy plastic emergency cable at right side inner door jam. It broke off, of course. I made my own emergency tool with a coat hanger which is neatly stored in right door handle pocket. Hope this helps. Cheers.
Lots of good information here. Thsnks, as I will be looking and shopping around in a few months. 03 C4$. Liked and would likely again put on PS2. 220 AA A rating also pretty good. I live in wet coastal climate with all roads in/out twisty and over hills. Good Porsche country. Little or zero snow. So I can use summer tires all year without changing to all-season M&S. Especially like PS2 AA traction in wet conditions. How do other tires noted compare on sidewall ratings? Spouse drives X5 with Pirelli Scorpions, rated 520 A A. That’s ok on big suv. Wear important to her. My former 911SC ran great on Potenza’s, as I recall rated 180 AA A, again year round use. I’m often on the road in hot country in summer playing music. Grip in heat and wet conditions my prime consideration. If we do get very cold, snow conditions and ice, which is rare, but does occur on the mountain occasionally, C4S stays home. Comments on PS4S treadware, traction, temp ratings will be welcomed and appreciated.
Appreciate your take on the tires. I can say that I used several sets of tires by other makers, changing all 4 at a time, liking Pirelli P Zero rosso a lot, and Bridgestone Potenza as well. But when I ran on the Michelin PS2 they were just simply the best. I don’t even search for others now. I’m curious as to the basis of your comment re PS4S. I haven’t thought about other tires in years. Difference might be that my car is all-wheel drive 4$. Cheers,
Sorry, I don’t understand the question. I run almost the same tires as Loren noted on my 2003 C4$. Michelin PS2, N3, 295/30 on the rear, 225/40 on the front. Porsche specs. What’s the problem?
judgejon replied to Augustus Barone's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Yes, exactly right. when spouse lost keys it meant trip to stealership with car and remaining key. Had to order key in advance giving vin info etc. once at dealership only took about 30 min. Only problem was we live about 4 hours from dealer. Made a nice day out of it though. for Lexus key lost at same time, I had our second key with me and we simply stopped at Lexus dealership on way home from trip and they did up a new key in under an hour. And for under half cost of 996 key. just something to factor into Porsche ownership necessities as needed.
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...
judgejon replied to redcab's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)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.
judgejon replied to redcab's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Wyovino is right I believe. This would keep some tension on the slider piece. But, still could be drag-chute release.
