  1. ^^^^+1 Common issue. However, you may also want to consider the following; 1, how many miles on clutch and is the pedal effort getting harder? 2.what kind of driving on clutch? Track, highway, multiple drivers, city, etc. 3, have you recently changed the brake fluid and/or bled the slave cylinder? 4, have you recently checked or changed the trani oil? 5. Is your shifter sloppy? You may need new linkage components. 6. If you have not already done so, search this forum for similar issue. Do post your findings Cheers Johan
  2. Will this hack work on the 2005-06 997 fog lights. Johan
  3. Google Response Engineering. Yarko is probably your go to guy locally. Johan
  4. +1 LN Engineering is no doubt one of the best authorities on the subject but you should educate yourself with the different offerings by doing a google search. This is not rocket science. BTW, a failed IMS bearing is not something that is usually preceded by noise or fluid leak. It most often just granades necessitating a full tear down, and rebuild. Johan
  5. Time for me to plan for the second water pump replacement. I note that there are several choices from Laso @ $188, to Pierburg @ $248 to Porsche @ $403 per Peliccan Parts. Anybody have any experience Laso and Pierburg? Johan
  6. judge, my OEM wiper have the Bosch stamp, not Porsche. I looked at the Napa replacement ones also made by Bosch but they do not have the wind scoop that prevents lifting in windy rain conditions at 70 mph. Just thought I should pass this along re the wind scoop. cheers, johan
  7. ^^would have never guessed that
  8. 1974 Targa/Cab conversion

    From the sump plate looks like an early motor. 2.7 is not a good choice for anybody except those in the real know. Lower front valance/fog lights from a +84 I think, same with rear impact bumperettes, interior appears to be a mishmash from different years. Who knows how the body was reinforced after removal of targa bar which is a structural item. '74 is pre galvanized body. In the USA or Canada, this car would be classified as marginal at 18,000 usd IMO. Keep your money. Do some more research here and on Pelican Parts 911 general discussion forum. You can do better with a relatively unmolested fully galvanized '78 or later SC 3.0 or later Carrera 3.2. Do your research and get yourself a knowledgeable Porsche mechanic to do your PPI. Johan
  9. ^^^^^ The PET in the Porsche Classic tab of the Porsche web site is your friend. Covers all years of the 996. The remarks column identifies particular years applicable. http://www.porsche.com/all/media/pdf/originalparts/usa/996_USA_KATALOG.pdf also, Pelican Parts for one will generally specify quantity required of each part. you will probably need a few more items such as screws/bolts, heat shields, etc. Take your time if you have it. Good luck. Johan
  10. I went thru the same concern as you with my '06 C2S. No spare no TPMS. Picked up a used 16" 996 full size spare pace saver tire and jack on Pelican which fits in the frunk standing up, but, as we do allot of traveling I found that it ate too much baggage space. Also thought about where I would put the punctured tire/rim in the car if I had to change on the road- a coupe with passenger cannot take a 305x30x19 in the back seat. So I settled for an aftermarket TPMS setup by Orange (Amazon, ebay, etc) for about $140which lasted 5 years. Just replaced the whole system with my last tire refreshment as it turned out to be cheaper than buying separate replacement battery/sensor units. Now I only carry the Porsche aluminum Jack, torque wrench, pump, work gloves, and a plug kit. I figure that in most cases the TPMS will give me enough time to pull over and fix by the side of the road. Hope this helps. cheers, johan
  11. Jason, Sorry for your issues. Sounds like a loose connection but other than that I unfortunately cannot offer anything diffinitive. I'll e following with interest as I have an '06 2CS. Hope that others will chime in who may have a better idea. Good luck. Johan
  12. I would say loosen the flex line at BOTH ends so that everything swivels, line up the hard line into the caliper and it should screw in. Then tighten up all connections. Hope this helps Johan
  13. Don't know about the whiteson DLR but I have a couple of things to mull. I have an '06 US purchased 997 C2S and the dealer was able to turn on the DLR and tail lights for me with the PIWIS. Depending on the year of yours, It may be applicable to yours. This may also be of help; http://rennlist.com/forums/997-forum/894306-997-led-drl-add-on-not-swap-question.html Good luck, Johan
  14. Didn't honestly believe that my original post was going to turn into a "crap on the bean counters" rant. My God, I used to be one of them. :-) More to the point, I have learned allot particularly from JFP, thank you, and I'm ordering FilterMags for all our cars tonight. Cheers, Johan
  15. Thanks for the write-up. Wondered where that tank was. Another mystery solved. Cheers, Johan
