  1. Ok. Just sent it again. Let me know if you got it...
  2. Thank Ralph Nader :lol: This is because of a fresh air (anti carbon monoxide) law he helped pass that requires fresh air in the passenger compartment on all vehicles.
  3. They will fit fine - as long as it is a C2 or C4 - not C4S.
  4. You will need either your cars VIN or the radio serial number to get the code from a dealer or Becker. Both require some for of ID so they know you are the rightful owner. If your dealer knows you well they might do it over the phone - otherwise you will have to go to a dealer with proof of ownership.
  5. If the 997 is like previous PCM systems - yes. But we won't know for sure until we see one...
  6. I did look in the RoW both and US/Canada parts lists... To my knowledge the Bi-Xenon has never been introduced in the Boxster (at least not yet). Litronics have been a Boxster option/retrofit since MY99.
  7. Are you sure about the part number? It is not in my price list. There is a 996.631.158.01 though? Another possibility is that that number has been replaced with a newer number (but quite some time ago as my list goes back to 2001).
  8. The piece is horseshoe shaped on the early cars and it snaps off/on. Try using a dull knife and some cloth to protect the dash as you pry an edge up.
  9. Try using the search feature here... it works pretty well. Here is a thread (I got from the search) Jack Stands
  10. Yes, unless there is damage. Torque the 10 mm stabilizer mount to stabilizer to 34 ft-lbs. and the 10 mm stabilizer to side member to 48 ft-lbs. Also, check the stabilizer to shock mount should be a 12 mm bolt torque to 63 ft-lbs. Chances are only one is loose but it's best to check them all.
  11. The most common cause is a loose sway bar. I would suspect that first and the top strut bolts second.
  12. Here is what I am aware of (as of this date): ABD is the same as is used on the current PSM. ASR is the Limited Slip Differential (LSD) option. The optional PASM adds an electronic adjustment to the shock absorbers. It allows you to set Normal or Sport. Also, if it senses - uneven (bumpy) road it softens the the shock absorbers to give a more comfortable ride - likewise if it senses sporty driving it firms the shocks.
  13. No those are still the pads used today on new (non-ceramic) TTs. No other factory options except ceramic. Also, the Ceramic part numbers above have changed with a newer TSB (in the TSB section).
  14. I sent you the interior dimming mirror instructions...
  15. From TSB 0307 9112 PCM Software Release Versions (dated 11-24-03)
  16. The wiring for the rain sensor passes through the bottom of the mirror mount. They are separate parts and options. Both can be retrofit. It is likely easier to do both at the same time since the same panels will need to be removed to route the wires.
  17. For the dimming mirror... inside mirror or outside mirror? Sorry, there is no TSB for headlight washer retrofit.
  18. Just added the 2005 Carrera C2 Coupe (997) Preliminary Order Guide and 2005 Carrera C2S Coupe (997) Preliminary Order Guide. You can find them at the link below: MY05 Order Guides
  19. Interesting the current paper manual price in the US is over $2000 :eek: A year ago in was under $500. Other than the ridiculous online manual price these were your only choices. Have they come to their senses? :wacko:
  20. Where is your dealer? 999 512 551 00 still shows as a valid part on my April 2004 part list. It is 36 x 12 mm. 999 512 499 00 is 40 x 12 mm so it will likely work too. You will just have more overlap.
