I still can't locate the straps despite the diagram you kindly provided. I thank you for your efforts. Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk
Thank you JTT. That looks exactly like my problem. So there is a strap that should run from side to side? And the attachment point is about where the cable leaves the track? What exactly does the strap attach to? I'm very sorry for bugging you about all this, and want you to know that I appreciate you time and expertise more than you can imagine. Thank you, Roy Parnell
Thanks but the link didn't work. Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk
Thanks. How far back from header is the strap?
royp4 posted a topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Hi all. I need help with the top on my 2003 996 carrera. The driver's side seals perfectly, but there is a gap on the passenger side. It appears that the cable does not seat properly in the plastic groove. It is as if the cable is too short. I will attempt to attach a pic. Thank you in advance for any advice.
royp4 replied to judgejon's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)I replaced driver side window mechanism on my 2003 996 cab without disconnecting battery. Just disconnected airbag after removing door panel. Important to not have key in ignition when airbag is disconnected. It really is a diy. If I can do it anyone can.

royp4 posted a topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)I have a 2003 996 cab with 114k miles. The clutch has begun to slip if I drive with any gusto. I can granny it around without slippage. Am I looking at a clutch replacement? If so, any estimates on total cost? I can turn a wrench but no way do I have the time or skill to tackle something of this magnitude. Any advice greatly appreciated. Thank you. Sent from my SM-G925V using Tapatalk
royp4 replied to vwrado's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)My 2003 Carrera cab has 116,000 miles. Major problems were water pump failure and recent AOS failure. I have repaired a few lesser problems including driver side window lift and driver side top hydraulic cylinder. Sent from my SM-G925V using Tapatalk
royp4 posted a topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)My Pcar is a 2003 996 cab. Recent AOS failure required trip to the dealer. AOS was replaced and 10K service done (car currently has 110K miles on the clock). I picked the car up a week ago. Ever since, I have noticed a difference in the clutch pedal. Currently requires less force to depress pedal. When starting from a standstill, shift from neutral to first or reverse not smooth, as if the clutch isn't fully disengaged. Any thoughts you might have concerning possible cause gratefully welcome. Anything I might be able to check also welcome. Finally, anything that dealer might have inadvertently done capable of causing these problems? Thank you in advance. Car still has original clutch and IMS.
I have read that after flushing coolant system or losing and replacing all the coolant the 996 engine can develop air pockets which result in overheating in those areas of the engine. The 3.6 apparently doesn't likke being run hot. Sent from my SM-G925V using Tapatalk
royp4 replied to Hobbes's topic in DIY Articles - Carrera (996) - Common Fixes and RepairsThank you for your kind comments. Glad to see that I'm not the only Porsche owner who is unwilling on unable to tackle a repair job on my ride. To soothe my hurt feelings I fixed my dad's lawnmower today. Lol
royp4 replied to Hobbes's topic in DIY Articles - Carrera (996) - Common Fixes and RepairsI have a 2003 996 cab. AOS found to be cracked. Due to time constraints and lack of faith in my ability to do replacement, I chose to let dealer do the job. $1800 was the cost of the job. I feel ashamed that I did not tackle this myself, and weep for my depleted bank account. Bravo to any and all who did this job themselves. I'm sure they are both wiser and wealthier than me.

I have a 2003 996 cab. Last night the low coolant light flashed. I found the coolant level to be low so I topped it I went for a short drive this morning. After parking the car I found a silver dollar sized fluid mark on my driveway. It is located at roughly the rear of the rear driver's side tire, about 12 inches toward the passenger side. Any ideas on the source of this leak would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance..
