  2. Please help...Just curious if someone can help me identify the ports I have circled in the pics I attached. I'm assuming they would be for antenna, XM etc. Just want the exact diagram. I installed an aftermarket radio and I know I don't have the BOSE sound system but I'm curious if one of those connections are for an amp. I'm not getting any sound out of my new radio.
  3. Yesterday
  4. Hi Jonhattan, I am in the exact same place you are. I reinstalled the intake and all went well except for that stupid flare fitted solid line which connects the lower fuel rail to the fuel pump. I spent the entire day trying to retighten those two fittings, and got fuel leak each time, either on pump side or lower rail side. There is zero space to work there, so I can only use two fingers, and had to grind a wrench to make it fit there. I bent the hard line to make it fit better, but maybe that was a mistake... I also thought about making a flexible high pressure line to make the job easier. Let me know if you go that route or where up you end up. So close...It almost feels like this was designed by some sadistic German engineer to torture people trying to work on their Cayenne. Aurelien
  5. Check and make sure one of the tires is not making contact while turning and backing up.
  6. I have one of those situations where the car shows symptoms of a problem when cold that can’t be duplicated when later warmed and at the repair shop. Here’s what’s happening. With my 02 C2 cab nearing 140K miles, it was time to have struts replaced again and for the first time, attend do all the little squeaks and knocks coming from tired suspension components. Up front I now have new: front control arms (lower and trailing), coil-over struts and top mounts, sway bar drop links and bushings, and inner and outer tie rods. I thought I was set for years to come but something new has cropped up. When the car is backed up with steering hard left, I experience three or four pronounced "snatches" or ‘grabs" coming from the front left. The steering wheel jumps and I feel a series of rapid bumps through the seat. Ease off the left turn and all is smooth again. It only happens when the car is cool. The snatching does not happen when backing hard right or when the car is stationary and the steering wheel run to and fro. Even though I’ve gotten in the habit of not steering near hard left first thing in the morning, I think I should have this sorted out. It would be good if I could point my shop in the right direction so if anyone has a cue to tell them it, would be much appreciated.                  
  7. The correct filter for an early 996 is the 986-307-403-00, which was also used in the Boxster.
  8. Does anyone know the part number for the frunk light micro switch? The part number in the tutorial does not fit the '98 Boxster. Thanks!
  9. Yes, I think you would be best to get a diagnostic scan with a Porsche tester. Any good independent will have the equipment.
  10. Take a moment to remember the sacrifice of those that made what ever you are enjoying possible...…..
  11. Is the filter on an early 996 the same as the filter on a 986? The part numbers listed in the guide are 986.xxx.xxx.xx... Which is great because they're half the price of the 996.xxx. Parts, but that seems a bit odd if they are identical.
  12. Coolant sensor #27 here M96.01/02/03 Oil Pump M96.04 WWW.AUTOATLANTA.COM
  13. Just tell them you have swapped clusters, they should be able to take it from there.
  14. Get the car scanned with a Porsche specific scan tool (Durametric or PIWIS), the system stores the last 10 alarm faults and will point you to the problem.
  15. 97 boxster all stock. I used my key to unlock the car and now I got problems.... I am not sure but I think this is the part that needs to be replaced. I am getting two beeps and sometimes one. I fixed the center lock when I fixed the stick shift. I thought maybe the center glove box might be contributing to the problem but it is not. I am not sure if I need this: 1997 Porsche Boxster Base Convertible - Electrical - Switches, Motors, Relays, Fuses & Wiring - Door Switches, HVAC Motors, Relays, and Switches, Starters, Window Motors and Relays WWW.PELICANPARTS.COM Switches, Motors, Relays, Fuses & Wiring for 1997 Porsche Boxster Base Convertible: Door Switches, HVAC Motors, Relays, and Switches, Starters, Window Motors and Relays or This: 1997 Porsche Boxster Base Convertible - Electrical - Switches, Motors, Relays, Fuses & Wiring - Door Switches, HVAC Motors, Relays, and Switches, Starters, Window Motors and Relays WWW.PELICANPARTS.COM Switches, Motors, Relays, Fuses & Wiring for 1997 Porsche Boxster Base Convertible: Door Switches, HVAC Motors, Relays, and Switches, Starters, Window Motors and Relays
  16. I would use a working bulb in the one that is not working....it is too much of a pain finding a meter. Your best tool is a bulb that works. =D
  17. I used a tiny drill to remove the tabs. I bought new ones from the dealership. When they are installed I found it impossible to extract. Once the plastic is gone and you have not damaged the hole (use a much smaller bit), putting new ones was quite simple. I skuffed up the first one trying to be gentle. It is plastic just work it that...takes seconds.
  18. Just for clarification what do I need to ask them to do? v
  19. Need a lot more info. If I have to guess, someone put a stock 3.6 engine into the '99. If so, the 3.6 has variocam+ that the '99 DME would not be able to control.
  20. Hard to know without knowing about the car. Sent from my ONEPLUS A3000 using Tapatalk
  21. Last week
  22. Hello is just purchased a 1999 911 with a partial conversion of 3.6 upgrade. The car runs amazing but lacks the power you would exspect. So is replacing the wire harness and computer my only option? Than you!
  23. Any Porsche shop with one of those tools. You do not need IPAS codes for a cluster change.
  24. Thank you - appreciated - parts outlet has confirmed this also regards neil
  25. I'm guessing that silence is a "no". As I couldn't fix it either, I picked up a replacement gateway from ebay for $30. Will fit it on arrival.
