  1. The brakes and clutch system share the same reservoir. You can easily skip bleeding the clutch but the fluid will likely mix in with the new brake fluid and slightly lower the boiling point. Bleeding the clutch is not hard. Just follow the instructions on the DIY page.
  2. The base carpet is all one piece so it is different for a coupe and cab (and targa).
  3. :oops: Sorry, my bad. I fixed the link above or use the Loren's DIY pages link at the top of page...
  4. Have someone put a PST2 tester on the car and readout the ABS and PSM faults. Chances are it is a wheel speed sensor -- question is which one.
  5. Yes and yes. Here is a link to detailed instructions How to make your sidemarkers flash
  6. P1124 - Oxygen Sensing Adaptation Area 1 (Cylinders 1 - 3) - Rich Threshold P1126 - Oxygen Sensing Adaptation Area 1 (Cylinders 4 - 6) - Rich Threshold The ODB II manual says that these codes indicate your fuel mixture is too lean. That is, the DME can not make the mixture rich enough - i.e. rich theshold exceeded. It lists as probable cause: Intake air system leaking. Fuel pressure too low. Fuel pump volume too low. Fouled fuel injectors. There is a TSB 4/00 03.. Oil Filler Cap (dated 3-24-2000) that states: "If the oil filler cap is not fully engaged, or is tilted, (n
  7. The storage lid box is the storage in the center console. There is no adjustment on the switch other than the bending the metal arm. If the switch is damaged or intermittent then it will need to be replaced. Sometimes the switch is okay and the plastic support bracket is broken or cracked -- usually from slamming the lid too hard.
  8. Did you follow my procedure in the DIY section? You MUST bleed the clutch with the pedal all the way to the floor (and held there during the bleeding process). Then manually (and slowly) pull the pedal back up. It sounds like you have air in the system and will need to re-bleed the clutch.
  9. No, the C4S has much larger openings in the front bumper (ala TT and GT2).
  10. Here is what is added/modified in the X51 kit: - new intake manifold with modified cross-section (material: sand cast aluminium ); - new intake pipe supports adapted to the form of the intake manifold; - new exhaust manifolds with larger cross-section and optimized flow behavior; - new cylinder heads with optimized, CNC-milled inlet ducts; - new camshafts with larger valve stroke on the inlet side and modified inlet and outlet timing; - inlet valve springs adapted to the enlarged valve stroke; - modified partition box in the oil pan; - modified maps for the DME
  11. Patience is good here (as hfisch said). Expect 20 minutes or so per side. Most folks use a hair dryer and dental floss. The dryer warms the double-sided sticky tape they are held on with and the dental floss can be used to slide underneath and saw the sticky foam. Clean up the residue with some 3M General Purpose Adhesive Cleaner. Be sure and mark where the current ones end first as it will make aligning the new ones easier.
  12. MY99 C4 cab - 6 speed -- RoW M030 (sport suspesion) Front Springs: 996 343 533 15 (marked Lilac/Orange) Front Shocks: 996 343 043 13 Front Sway Bar: 996 343 703 02 Rear Shocks: 996 333 051 13 Rear Sway Bar: 996 333 701 17 Rear Springs: 996 333 531 04 (marked Brown/Red) to VIN 991S6 41090; 991S6 00547; 991S6 40407; 991S6 40432 OR 996 333 531 37 (marked Brown/Red) for all numbers higher than above numbers. Please note these are for a 6 speed. If your car is a Tip them some numbers will change (due to weight differences).
  13. This is just one solution. I like HomeLink but this is still not what I want to do. My wife's Jeep has HomeLink in the visor but ours are too thin. My Mercedes has it in the rear view mirror - that is a possibility but needs more investigation. I've also though about a junk yard to get one of these and see if they are thinner. Good luck if you can find one before me. Would have been a lot nicer if Porsche would have just put HomeLink in their cars...
  14. First thing I would look for is if someone left a loose wrench in there...
  15. Yes. LSD is always on. Traction Control can be switched off. TC was a forerunner to todays PSM.
  16. Whoa.... My mistake!! The Boxster Aerokit II does have clips etc. available. 999 507 640 09 18 x U-clip 999 073 231 09 24 x Sheetmetal screw 4.8 x 16 C 999 591 699 02 4 x Sheetmetal nut ea. 4.8 999 073 061 022 x Sheetmetal screw 4.8 x 19; DIN968
  17. Yes, sorry been kind of busy so I haven't had as much "research" time as I'd like. I think the Cayenne headlight leveling is part of the vehicle leveling system. So I think they get the signals from the existing system (unlike the carrera that needs a level sensor for each wheel). Porsche provides wiring diagrams in the service manuals. These (specifically) simply cover US/Canada lighting and RoW lighting and usually have insets for standard lights vs. Xenon. So you would have to read the schematics and compare. Alas, I do not have a Cayenne service manual. I thought they were outrageo
  18. Front Axle Measurement Rear Axle Measurment IMHO... If you just want a firmer ride then go with the X74. If you want to be able to adjust the ride height the go with a coilover kit. As Karl said just putting the suspension components on a Carrera won't work. You will also need GT3 wheel carriers and control arms front and rear, etc. If you want GT3 type handling the closest you are going to get is with coilovers and GT3 swaybars (unless you buy a GT3 of course). Good Luck on you decision...
  19. Sorry, according to the parts list the side skirts are Tequipment only and only sold as a kit.
  20. And the OBD II error codes are? You can get these with any scan tool. Some auto parts stores will read your codes for free too.
  21. I would start by comparing the alignment specs and ride heights (see below): Carrera GT3 A PSS9 (or H&R Coilovers for that matter) are coilover shocks that are completely adjustable (within a range). The X74 kit is very stiff shocks and springs and reenforcements for the stiffer components. Cars built before MY2002 do not have the additional chassis reinforcement needed for an X74 kit. My understanding is that you can go back and weld those components in but the factory does not recommend it. Both will lower your car more than RoW M030 Sport suspensi
  22. You can put coilovers on any Carrera. The GT3 sway bars may need to have mounts made. The Racers Group sells these as do a few other companies.
