  1. :oops: Sorry, I thought you wanted to do something with the sill storage and controls. If you want to remove the sill plates (i.e. Carrera) they are just held on with double-sided tape (and have nothing to do with the sill storage). So, dental floss and a hair dryer usually work well. Be sure to mark the locations with tape (or something) so that when you put the new ones on you don't have to measure for centering.
  2. What year is your car? Early cars used a cable release and starting in MY01 the release became electric.
  3. Karl, According to the TSB for the TT and GT2 you are mostly correct. The computer system recogizes an existing radio and as long as that same radio is taken out or put in the same car there is no code or programming needed. But, if you replace the radio (with another CDR-23) the PST2 must be used to have the computer identify the new radio and "program" it to work with this car.
  4. Well, I think your best bet is the RoW M030 suspension. This is the slightly lower sport suspension used in Europe and elsewhere. The RoW M030 will give you a Porsche tuned suspension that includes slightly lower springs, different shocks and different sway bars (if you have the standard US suspension). With this suspension your car will be about 20 mm lower in the front and 10 mm lower in the rear... and the handling difference will be phenomenal over stock. There is a full write up in a PCA's Panorama article 996 Standard and Sport Suspensions Analyzed
  5. I sent you the RoW intervals (which are different than US).
  6. From the TSB: "Disconnect all electrical plug connections and expose weld point 21 (note the several BK/BL leads for the reverse gear signal" "Solder the BL/RE (from pin 3)to one of the existing BK/BL wires at weld point 21, under driver's seat. Insulate."
  7. Well, I am not a physicist but the downforce on a car front to rear always must be proportioned. Otherwise, adding more downforce in one area (i.e. front) will cause the rear to lift sooner -- rather than later. If you increase the downforce on one end of the car you need to do something at the other end also. Most folks agree that downforce just starts to work at 60 MPH but by 100 MPH it become very important. In the past Porsche published the effects of their wings and spoilers so you could play matching games... but now it seems for legal reasons (or ??) they don't. So you have to guess how difference a GT3 front spoiler is from the standard on. IMHO... of course.
  8. From Racershopper.com... "Castrol SRF is NOT to be mixed with any other type of fluid! Whenever you add fresh fluid to your existing system (never mix fluids of different DOT classifications), it immediately becomes contaminated, lowering the boiling point of the new fluid."
  9. First, I recommend that you try and get your dealer to do this under warranty. This was a known problem and most dealers will still replace the hinge for free. If not, here is a link to the TSB with instructions and part numbers to repair a broken hinge (about 44k PDF file). Oddment Tray Cover (hinge repair)

  11. It's part of the hardtop kit (2 per car). I think it hides the area around the pop-up rollbars when you have the hardtop in place. Don may have more info (I don't have a cab).
  12. Okay, Don... we need details. Is it just a plug? or is there more behind it? :clapping:

    The exotic sports cars of the American Le Mans Series return for a fifth year to grace the twisting 12-turn circuit at Infineon Raceway at the Infineon Grand Prix of Sonoma, July 25-27. This weekend of sports car action features high-powered machines reaching speeds at more than 150 mph. Audi, Panoz, Saleen, Ferrari, Corvette and Porsche will be among those jockeying for position on the circuit.

  14. The locations are: See my Brake/Clutch Fluid Change and Bleeding Instructions p.s. now you know why I do all my own work) Calipers Clutch (above axle on drivers side)
  15. Yes, BS 16/2 (position 11 relay support 1) goes to fuse F5 and is power. And yes, BS 11 (position 28 relay support 1) goes to fuse F5 and is ground. Not that it uses a lot of power (I doubt it does) but they are seeing the the power is distributed so you don't blow a fuse. ;) Good Luck!
  16. Freddy, Need to know the model year of your car to get the right list...
  17. To my knowledge all (real) GT3's had 3 radiators... it was not an option. My Carrera with factory aerokit had the GT3 bumper with the plug.
  18. I'll cross my fingers for you. It could be that they have changed the bumper part number in the kit but all the kit lists I have show a different number. Good Luck!
  19. Patrick, Yes. That's why I am concerned that you might not have the right bumper. The headlight openings and fender opening are different on the later cars. Can you verify with the company you bought from that you got the right bumper?
