I'm doing the 996 to 997 GT3-RS front conversion and need to re-pin the headlight connector as the 997 use A5 Pin instead of A4 as the 996 (for the High Beam)
My question is how can I remove the pin from A4 and put it back in A5 ?
How to re-pin the headlight connector ?
I did a lot of search and didn't find anything specific on Porsche 996.
I've got a 1999 996 Carrera that hasn't had any mechanical issues outside of a water pump replacement earlier this year. Just today I noticed that when in 3rd to 5th gear (I haven't had it on freeways to see if it's in 6th too, but most likely it does) in the mid rpm ranges (2500 - 3000+) there is a vibration that I can feel through the gas pedal and throughout the car. When the gas is let up and/or when the vehicle is coasting the vibration goes away. The vibration seems to only occur on acceleration and does seem to be coming from the rear. The check engine light came on as well, at first it was flashing and is now constant.
Any tips on what this could be? Drive shaft? Engine mount? Catalytic converter? .....?
I live in Boca Raton, I have a 2005 997 - 911 with 93k miles. I'm not a rich man.
I'm looking for recommendations for service and repair in the south Florida area ideally someone who would like to work on a gentle restoration
or a recommendation for a reasonable shop that will do good work for a reasonable price i.e. not dealer rates.
I need a replacement alternator i think as the bearings have just gone (sounds like that anyway) and all the belts should be due by now.
Anyone with experience in maintaining this vehicle who wants to earn a little extra please contact me or if anyone has a show they would personally recommend I'd be very grateful.
