  1. That is correct. The newer cars have additional chassis supports welded in. X74 is not approved or recommended by Porsche for any cars older than MY02.
  2. Sounds like Porsche AG needs to straighten out their policies. From the PCNA TSB 1/03 1359 Crankshaft Seal - Flywheel Side (R & R Procedures) (dated March 7, 2003):
  3. Yes. The ISO connector works on all 3 of my cars - Porsche, Mercedes, and Jeep (wife's). It is not unusual to have a disconnect/reset on some vehicles when you are changing tests or running a special test (O2 sensors). Some of the cars computers do this to make sure they transmit clean info from the different OBDII controllers in the car. Usually it reconnects right away automatically. Also, I understand that some vehicles shut down the communications link when there is no traffic for long periods of time - my wife's Jeep does this.
  4. Passenger side rear seat latch is: 996 522 322 01 01C Control Lever (in satin black). The drivers side is: 996 522 321 01 01C
  5. Twist and pull at the same time - it may come off with a snap so open the sun roof! :lol:
  6. Make sure you have the latest version since the updates are almost monthly. My version is: Version 1.13 05-07-04. Here are my gateway setup screens (these are all default I believe).
  7. My RMS was fixed in Feb 2002 with just under 10,000 miles - no problems since. Most folks don't have another RMS problem - I haven't. In several cases Porsche has fixed 2nd and 3rd RMS failures out of warranty and even replaced engines that were 5-6 years old. IMHO any car can have a problem or two and this issue is no better or worst than other cars. If you enjoy the car - then keep it if not - then sell it. Personally I think a lot of folks are over-stressing about RMS issues for no reason. It really is only a problem in a small percentage of cars and Porsche has fixed or replaced engines at
  8. 996 362 136 50 SportDesign 18 x 8 et 52 List price $754.14 (each). I got mine from Wheel Enhancement for about $625 (each).
  9. No it is not the same. I use a hockey puck on the jack and CAREFULLY position it off of the rocker panels but still on the jack point. There are a couple of companies that make a smaller pin like adapter for jacks... but you still need to be careful. Positioned wrongly will crack the rocker panel.
  10. We have just updated the TSB listings (and TSB for Contributing Members) as I just received about 24 new ones. Here is a brief listing of the new or superseded TSBs: Boxster Incorrect Fuel Level Display In Instrument Cluster Return of Control Units and Diagnosable Components Summer Tire and Wheel Summary (updated) Telephone Module (Option I No. 666) (for PCM2) Winter Tire, Wheel, & Snow Chain Applications (updated) Carrera Incorrect Fuel Level Display In Instrument Cluster Return of Control Units and Diagnosable Components Overview of Summer Tires, Wheels
  11. Yes, if you go too low you can overheat the sidewalls and cause tire damage.
  12. There are now TSBs (in the Contributor's Section) for PCM2 equiped cars.
  13. Yes, I understand. Do you want the HPAS installation TSB? If so, send me a PM with your email address.
  14. You can order the door panels from Porsche for about $900 (each!) or there are a few shops that can convert your existing panels. Here are a couple photos from a company called Car Audio Innovations in Sacramento, CA that does the door conversions. I think someone in the UK can do the same but I don't know of any companies. If you can't find someone in the UK then PM me and I'll give you the contact info for Car Auto Innovations.
  15. I don't think I have measured them warm -- but hot is about 38/40. I am using Bridgestone Pole Position S03's. I am running 225/40 in front on 8 x 18 wheels. On the rear I am running 285/30 on 10 x 18 wheels.
  16. Porsche says 2 mm but I think your wear sensors will trigger before that.
  17. Tom Morris did a very good DIY for Boxsters (and Carreras are teh same). What you will need to adjust for os LHD vs RHD. Tom Morris's CD Changer Install DIY
  18. 955 044 900 12 is for Cayenne's with the Bose sound system and 04 is for Cayenne's without it.
  19. 955 551 773 04 is called Luggage Boot Cover and looks like it mounts lower than the luggage cover. 955 551 691 01 is called Luggage Cover and looks like it mounts higher in the compartment. Looks similar to the rollout screens that Jeep uses. Add 9ET to the part number for Black Luggage Boot Cover. Use 6S4 for a Stone Grey Luggage Boot Cover. The Black Luggage Cover is only available in Black (add 3W4).
