  2. 1999 Porsche 911 Convertible My radio is a CR-220 Type 4362 22/99 Ser: 1503 1062 Had to change my battery and when i bought the car it didnt come with the radio code.
  3. I am finally done with all the winter’s projects on my -00 996 3.4. I filled it with new oil -8.5 litres including 0.5 litres in the filter. However both the dipstick and the electric meter says that it just reaches minimum. So I filled more, and checked, and even more, and checked. Ran the car. Checked. Filled even more. And checked. Ran the car. I have now almost 10 litres in the car and the dipstick says it is on the minimum line and the electric meter says one bar over minimum. There are no leaks as far as I can see. The car sat with oil a few weeks before the transmission was reinstalled so I could check for leaks. So what should I do now? This is just strange.

  7. A little more info, wire color was actually brown, which I believe should be a ground on this vehicle. But still don’t see any place to connect.

  9. Hi All, My CD auto changer has not been part of the system since I got the car. Has aftermarket HU. The fibre cable is removed but the power plug is still there. I'm looking to remove the unit altogether but can't work out how the plug comes out. I could just snip the wires but would prefer not to. Any help appreciated Thanks Mike
  10. Hi, looking for a code. CDR-220 Type 4462 15004483 Thanks in advance.
  11. The sunroof control switch (SCS)...(see picture1) kept popping out so I had to get the cover off which required removal of “bug eyes“ which are part of a Infrared Passenger Compartment Monitor System (IPCMS) to expose the holding screws(HS). Is this a one sensor system and this (picture2) Looks fine or there is a lens missing. I’ll have to check and see if I can set off the alarm while inside the car but most of these systems don’t work if incomplete... Any fellow enthusiast recognize or have had opportunity to see this removed...normal or not. Thank for your responses in advance(TFYR)....have to make sure my Porschease is spot on (or its abreviatitis...an obsession with having an abbreviation of letters for everything on a car. It’s actually money savings because if you had to pay for every time they printed PDK out in it’s full name the cars and parts would be even more expensive. Quick true/false question. Not driving your car will ruin sparks plugs. True or False?
  12. Hey all 20 or you responders on Renntech 356. This, in no way, will compete with 356registry but any and all communications with other Porsche guys and gals is appreciated. As a 51 year Porsche owner, who still has all of the Porsche cars that I have ever owned, I am happy to add whatever I might to this forum. I hope others will share their experiences and queries as well. Attached is the kardex of my first Porsche purchase in 1969. The story of the restoration of this car can be found at www.356registry under the title "time to restore my notchback".
  13. Hi guys. I know that this thread is somewhat dated, but does anyone know if the amp pins for the rear speakers are always active for this Becker 6600 amp? My car only has the dash and door speakers and I am trying to figure out how to get the audio out to rear speakers so that I can fit them. I have the CDR-23 radio and it has no active analogue audio outputs. I’m hoping the rear speaker pins on the amp are already active and it’s just a case of finding somewhere to buy the pins to put into the amp connector. Also, thanks Loren for posting this diagram here. I have scoured the internet for months trying to find this! Thanks, Terry

  15. Thanks for the welcome and I will assign a reputation point for any posts that answer my questions.
  16. I am replacing the Fuel Vapor Detection Pump on my 2006 Cayenne Turbo. The replacement went fairly easily, but I ended up with a disconnected wire that I cannot figure out where it goes. It’s a single red wire from the same bundle that feeds the pump and what looks to be a sensor. It’s a clean end so it must have been connected to something. Anyone know what it connects to?
  17. Thank you!!! It’s been months since we have been able to use it 🥳
  18. The driver side window regulator in my car started making a loud scratchy noise about 2 or 3 years ago. I tried to minimize its use, fearing that it was going to fail, but eventually it got better and right now the scratching noise, while still there, is almost imperceptible. The window, however, does not lower automatically ¼” or ½” , whatever it is supposed to do, when I open the door. I am not sure if this is an issue related to the window regulator or to a failed microswitch. I have bought a Porsche OEM window regulator, but I wouldn’t go to the trouble of getting it installed, unless I am sure that the window regulator currently in the car is bad. Any suggestions on how to proceed? Thanks
  19. I apologize for missing your question. We tried a few different ways. I have cold air intakes on with these large 6" come filters the easiest thing to try first was to remove a filter and intro smoke that way. Next we pulled off the bellows at the Y-pipe - I have an IPD plenum on - and put the wand in both sides traveling down to the MAFS and intercoolers.We pulled the IPD plenum off and got the wand through the throttle body to smoke the intake runners. Finally we pulled off the connections to the air injection pumps to see if there were any leaks at the CATS. A bit labor intensive but worth it.
  20. Welcome to RennTech Absolutely none of that information will identify which style bearing is in the engine; the only proven way to tell is to pull the trans, clutch, and flywheel, and then look at the size of the center bolt. If it is 22MM, you have the non serviceable style bearing. Good luck.
