  2. Hi All, Just joined the Forum. A Porsche owner since 1969. Recently purchased a 1995 993. A very nice looking car with a very bumpy service history. I am finding quite a lot to do and a very surprisingly low level of recent (or even past) maintenance. I will be seeking advice and instructions on several systems as I sort through the problems. Looking forward to the journey! Recently restored my first Porsche from ground up. 1961 Karmann Hardtop.
  3. Today
  4. Blue loctite...just a drop or two will do. Don't know the torque..just tight plus a pull is what I did.
  5. 20 +/- 2 Nm, or 15 +/- 1.5 ft. lbs. Loctite is optional, but use med strength if you do.
  6. Thanks to All. Is there a specific torque to put the bolts back?. Is Loctite require?
  7. I can confirm that all of the above is correct...triple square XZN bit. Do not try to use a torx bit in there because it will tear it up.
  8. You then need to determine if these rub spots happen during turning or under suspension droop. You also need to check if the wheel offset is factory, and if there are spacers in use.
  9. Thanks, there are signs on the outside of the tire and the inner fender area (painted area) … sorry I failed to mention it is outside tire fender rub. The signs to exist.
  10. Welcome to RennTech I would put the car up in the air and look for signs of rub contact before doing anything.
  11. Not one that can be reproduced on this website, factory service data are the intellectual property of PCNA. There is an o-ring on the solenoid, and another on a shaft inside the actuator.
  12. Is there a diagram of how it all goes together - am i right in thinking the green o-ring is on the shaft of the solenoid?
  13. Just purchased a 2000 996 cabrio, the previous owner mentioned the tire rub. I am sitting on a new set of pilot sports but I want to understand the rub issue first before they are installed. These are stock 255 40-17, and the tires on the car do show signs of fender rub. Is this just as simple as a weak coil spring or is it possible the car has been lowered and can be returned to normal ride height ? And how would that be done. Do coil spring spacers exist to shore up weak springs? Or is this possibly a camber issue ? This is not going to be a track car, I am simply working through it as a hobby project … Thanks
  14. I had an issue with the horn not working at all. Checked the fuse and it was blown. After reading the postings in this forum I tried installing the #31 o'rings on the airbag mount. I was a bit hesitant that it would solve the problem as the original bushings looked to be in good condition. The #31 o'rings fit perfectly. I completed the install and reconnected the battery it worked perfectly. Many thanks to all the members for the outstanding ideas and recommendations!
  15. Yes, which is the solenoid unit. The $1200 price is probably for the entire actuator assembly.
  16. Yesterday
  17. Renekton Triple Square Spline Bit Socket Set XZN,Tamper Proof,1/2" 3/8" 1/4" Drive,M4 - M18,S2 Steel,10 Pieces That's the name of what I bought Sent from my GM1917 using Tapatalk
  18. They are triple square. I bought a set off of Amazon for $17 to swap out my door latch. Sent from my GM1917 using Tapatalk
  19. Should be less than that, perhaps around $400 USD. I have no idea what they sell for in Canada.
  20. Just to get in the right frame of mind - is this the whole ~$1200 USD actuator unit?
  21. Sooner or later it is going to fail completely, which will impact how the engine runs as well as throwing more codes. As Porsche does not sell the seal separately, you only option is to replace the unit. As for the part number, it would be best to have a dealer run your VIN number to make sure you get the correct number.
  22. Catless w/crosspipe. If you have neighbors, they won’t be amused when you cold start in the morning. That will be LOUD.
  23. Thanks for the quick replies everyone! I will have a look at the electrical; however I tend to agree with a mech failure diagnosis due to the rubber showing up in the filter. a few follow up questions: Since this is very intermittent "fault" ( I daily drive the car and I might see the code once every few weeks) Is there a risk continuing to drive with this issue for the remainder of the season? Next, is replacing the seal in the assembly an option, or is this a full replacement scenario only? And last question, replacement part number?
  24. Hey does anyone know if the Bose amp need to be recoded by the dealer if replaced. My amp got wet and I need a new one.
  25. Most likely triple square (AKA XZN) bolts. I used Snap-on, but a lot of other tool companies make them as well. Amazon also sells them.
