Front Strut Dust Boot Replacement

Recommended Posts

Pulling the front end on the GT3 to get at a dead horn... found the dust boot on the front strut torn.  Has anyone replaced one of these?  I had a competition suspension set up from Jae Lee at Mirage in San Diego and don't want to mess it up, but need to replace the boot.  Can I just remove the mounting at the top and drop the suspension and replace the boot from the top?  ANy help on this is greatly appreciated!

Hi Oscar.....  I've not done this (yet) myself on my 6GT3, but, if you do disconnect the top of the strut, you will have to realign the front end.  (to state the obvious).

It would be a good opportunity to check the alignment all around to, since our cars are so sensitive to alignment.

Craig,

 

Here is what I got back from Jae:

 

So, when you remove the top mount from the car, take 2 of the 3 nuts off.  make a line thru the bolt and the top mount so you can put it back to where it was.....  should be ok if you put it back to where it is...... 

 

I pulled off the dust cover to look but it the bolt is recessed so I am not sure where he is talking about making the line, LOL..  I'll get clarification.

      The left door key switch on my 00’ 996 c4 will not lock or unlock. I took the handle and bracket out of the door frame. I was told what usually breaks is the cylinder but nothing appears to be broken. I don’t want to buy a new key so simply replacing the bracket isn’t an option. Is there a straight forward solution or do I need a specialist??
       
      Any my feedback would be much appreciated thanks!

      Cabriolet side/mud flaps are actuated by this lead screw which is attached to the shaft of the drive motor.
      If your tops gets out of synch as mine did when the bolt that holds a side arm casting to the hydraulic piston fell out, then it creates a cascading nightmare of fragile part failures.
      First that spindly potentiometer arm with the lightening holes to save a hundredth of gram of plastic breaks off, now these. 
       
      This tiny molded soft plastic nut runs on what I measure as a M8 x 1.5 pitch lead screw, which is apparently less common than the M8 x 2 pitch lead screw used in 3D printers.
      It is ridiculous to replace the entire side flap assembly because this soft plastic lead screw nut gets run to the end and stripped/cracked so it runs too slow and the computer times out.
       
      Has anyone sourced this lead screw nut or a replacement M8 x 1.5 pitch lead screw nut with a triangular or round flange that could be cut down square to insert into the carrier that operates the flap?

      List Mates, I have a 2002 996 c4. When my Air conditioner compressor is activated the volume of air coming out of the vents is decreased dramatically.  It still blows cold but just very very low volume or amount. I have had it recharged , checked leaks , replaced condensors etc but nothing changes. As soon as you switch the ac off ( snowflake button) the volume of air through the vents goes right back up.  Volume of air is fine on heat , defrost etc.  I have never had this issue with any other vehicle. Any ideas as to what the problem may be?

      Transitioning from previous thread to new one--  Replaced the water pump and performed the 60,000 mile service in my 04 Turbo Cab.  Car runs great except now I am getting overboost to 1.0-1.3 bar.  I don't hold it there to be sure.  That said, I realize it is likely a vacuum issue but the only lines I touched during the repair are the one from the Y-Pipe to the switch and the one from the switch to the plastic line that goes to the driver side of the engine.  Flashlight and inspection mirror show the 3rd line on the underside of the switch to be connected.  Any thoughts on where else to look?
       
      Thanks

      2003 996 seat height adjustment not working. Back seat adjustment works and forward backward manual adjustments work fine. Anyone experienced this and what might be the cause?
