  1. First I want to apologize to those that have not been able to get access to Porsche Parts at Dealer Cost. There was a security foul up and some folks were told they did not have access to that page. That is now fixed and everyone should have access. What is Porsche Parts at Dealer Cost? Sunset Imports is a Porsche dealer in Oregon that is joining with RennTech.org to offer Porsche Parts at Dealer Cost (plus a small handling fee). They have some specials listed that include common maintenance kits, popular accessories and upgrades. These prices are excellent! So, is this a banner type
  2. The dash trim pieces are covered in the DIY section. Search for dash trim. Becker should have what you need as a prewired cable. You might want to check with Becker Australia. Here is a link to a Becker dealer in Australia: SoundLab Group Here is the US information (for comparison).
  3. :lol: ...or you can download the Order Guides here at RennTech.org. See the link at the top of every page... "MY04 Order Guides"
  4. Speaker/power plug is Becker No. 163.736-276 about $14 Becker also sells a kit that includes: phone mute/Aux audio-in/Tel audio-in/Removal keys for $16.40 - Becker No. 1319.116-276 Becker (NA) is at: 888-423-3537 x1209
  5. As a special feature for our Contributing Members we have added a new forum (under Other below) for Contributing Members only. Only Contributing Members can see and use this forum. Please continue to use the public forums for all technical issues.
  6. 222 is Traction Control (only available on MY99 C2's). 234? Are you sure it isn't 224 Limited Slip Differential? TC and LSD were always sold together.
  7. Sounds like an exhaust manifold leak to me or a compression leak. Not good... better find a shop that can check it out. I would not drive the car - just to be safe.
  8. At this point I'm not sure I remember... last car I did (before the DIY) was a Turbo and I can't remember if it was different or not. The larger one (30 mm) will only fit in one place so that should tell you for sure. Let me know what you find...
  9. Porsche specs say - 18 MPG city and 26 MPG highway. Sounds like you are right on spec.
  10. If you look at my 3rd Radiator DIY (Loren's DIY pages link at the top of this page) I cover removing the front bumper. You will see that you likely will need to slightly loose all the front bumper screws... then move the bumper and tighten them down again.
  11. Please list them here or try the list at: Kindel Option Decoder
  12. Not to my knowledge - not on the 996. There are however 3 different MAF sensors depending on: C2 or C4 (MY01 and older) or 3.6 liter (beginning in MY02).
  13. Unless you damaged one of the oxygen sensors (not likely) then I doubt this is related. Have you had the gas cap or oil cap off recently? ...these are the two most common causes of a CEL.
  14. Well, the springs are just little brass clips (as Glenn showed in the first pic). So the problem is likely finding just those pieces or making your own. The plastic hinge pins are very fragile so be careful. If they break you will need replace the whole visor. ...or drill a small hole where the pin was and glue in a metal one (don't ask me how I know that - :lol: )
  15. I mean the pins on the headlight assembly and the socket they plug into in the opening. You may need a flashlight to see the socket well inside the opening. I usually give a slight tug to see if any of the wires are loose in the socket too. If they are then they push out and don't make contact when you push the headlight in.
  16. New front brake thickness is ~28 mm. To remove the rotor you take off the caliper. Then remove the 2 phillips head screws holding the rotor on. See my DIY brake pad section for more detail.
  17. Doug, I've seen this happen a couple of times before. Take the light out and double check the pins on both the plug and socket. Make sure none are bent or pushed out of their holders.
  18. Do a search for Homelink here... there are a couple of guys working on this. Porsche is (unfortunately) not a Homelink customer.
  19. I think you just remove the snap ring and pull the pin out. I think Don (DonCapeCod) has done this himself so you might try an email to him if you are still having problems.
  20. I don't see anything more than that in any of the manuals. Give Horst a try at The Becker Board
  21. I don't see anything that in any of the manuals. Give Horst a try at The Becker Board
  22. Something is on the either the rubber window to body seal or the plastic window guides inside the door. You can try cleaning and lubricating the rubber pieces and if that doesn't help then the door would likely have to be taken apart. Then clean and or replace the internal parts.
  23. Could be a rock or pebble caught in the splash shield. That is fairly common.
