  1. 996 505 425 00 70C Left Buffer (Rally Black) 996 505 426 00 70C Right Buffer (Rally Black) Sorry, I don't have a cost on that item.
  2. It says MY01 and newer. I don't yet know why it would not work in an earlier car.
  3. Sorry, my bad. Read the wrong line :oops: 996 333 531 12 is correct for RoW M030. 996 333 701 19 sway bar should still be okay as it is the replacement for the 996 333 701 17.
  4. Ahhh... my mistake. I think One of the brake bleeder caps would work though I haven't tried.
  5. They are actually a cap with a plastic keeper. 930 351 919 00 front 930 351 927 00 rear
  6. Any one that will fit and not fall off will do. I would not recommend duct tape or anything that is likely to melt from the brake heat.
  7. Very little different in the 01 and 03 part numbers. The very early (1999-2000) version that I have has smaller bypass pipes - otherwise they are functionally the same.
  8. Yes, 03 is an updated part that replaced the 01 version. Should work fine.
  9. There is supposed to be a TSB for PCM 2 upgrades floating around but neither I nor any of the dealer techs I know have a copy. If your dealer follows the procedures in the Service Manual they should know what to set using the PST2. It is basically check boxes for the options on your car.
  10. More info now in the pinned topic at the top of this forum...
  11. Here is the brochure with part numbers for various phones for the new Porsche Cell Solution (1.3 MB PDF). There are now also TSBs (in the Contributing Member's Section) for PCM2 equiped cars. Contributing Members can download the prep and install TSBs in the Contributing Members Only Forum. Porsche_Cell_Solution.pdf
  12. It's the same "Signal A" wire used for the PSE and PCMI and II. A Grey/pink wire at the (foot area) relay panel.
  13. I think Don is asking for some specs. Dyno/performance. Thx.
  14. From TSB 2a/98 6315 Aerokit - Deactivating the Rear Spoiler Warning Light on MY’01 (dated 8-31-01) "Vehicle Type: Boxster / Boxster S Model Year: MY 2001 (1) Concern: Deactivating the rear spoiler warning light. Information: As of MY ’01, a new instrument cluster has been installed in Boxster and Boxster S vehicles. The display of the warning and indicator lights is now performed by light-emitting diodes (previously bulbs). The LEDs are soldered into the circuit board of the cluster, and are not removable. When installing an Aerokit in one of these vehicles, the spoiler warning light m
  15. Thanks to all that have contributed! Your donations help keep this site running and banner free. Also, the Polyrib Belt DIY has been updated (to 24 mm).
  16. On 996 and Boxster a dealer must use a PST2 (Porsche System Tester) to program keys.
  17. With the right tools it should take 5 to 8 hours. Nothing special here just change the springs, shocks and rebound springs. Re-torque everything and get a quality alignment.
  18. I'll have to double check the Carrera. I got the number from the service manual (wouldn't be the first time it was wrong). I don't remember what I used last time - just grabbed a wrench that fit :lol:
  19. My experience is that MB manuals and TSBs are almost impossible to get. I use AllDataDIY.com for my CLK55.
  20. If you change them before they wear through the sensors you will not need new sensors. New pads are approx 12 mm front and 10.5 rear so I would personally change at 5 mm. YMMV...
  21. Try Sunset Imports in Oregon. (see link at the top of the pages here - Porsche Parts at Dealer Cost). Obviously some dealers have raised the prices based on demand. :welcome:
  22. According to the Porsche Service manual... "New brake pads require a bedding-in period of approx. 200 km. Not until then do they achieve their best friction and wear coefficient. During this period, the brakes should be subjected to full stress when travelling at high speed only in emergencies."
  23. Viken, See KarlS's DIY here
