  1. The control unit for mirror memory is only in the seats with seat memory option M537 (left seat memory) and M538 (right seat memory).
  2. No not yet. I have some TSBs on their way to me now though. When there is a problem such as this the NHSTA usually gives companies time to find a fix, test the fix and then implement fix. We don't end up hearing much until stage 3.
  3. Changing the check valve just reverses how it works from the factory. So, to have full control via the switch you need to perform the mod here
  4. If your car has the full electronic and vacuum install then just reverse the white/black check valve... or install the switch and mod to control it with the switch. (sorry don't remember who gave me this photo)
  5. Have a look at this thread and then let me know if you want the instructions. Also, Porsche recently introduced a new type ignition switch (TSB 4/03 2804 Replacement Ignition Switch dated 11-24-2003).
  6. Here is what they use in the TSBs: 999 911 606 40 Teflon adhesive tape (20 mm wide) 993 555 545 00 Narrow felt tape (15mm wide)
  7. If you want I can send you the two parts lists and you can compare them. Inside the door is different because the windows are different but the panel side parts may work. PM me with your email address if you want the parts lists.
  8. Same routine - required by law I believe. Should be an exchange part though.
  9. :lol: :lol: :lol: $6.00 plus $5.50 S&H = $11.50 these are $1.80 from Becker North America
  10. Have a look at this thread and you have got an email also...
  11. With GT3 adjustable control arms you can likely get to -2 degrees (with available shims) -- which would work well on the track but not so well on the street.
  12. No. The headlight and front bumpers are shaped differently - so the factory part won't work. There are some aftermarket bumpers available. The changes that would allow this were the MY02 Carrera and on.
  13. The term "secondary air pump" is really referring to "secondary air" pump. The OBDII/DME provide the following (for US cars) - Oxygen sensing plus post catalyst sensing (4 sensors) 3-way catalytic converter system with one cascade catalyst both left + right (with two metal supports) secondary air system. Purely for exhaust system emissions monitoring. The DME performs a self-test each time you turn the key as do several other control systems within the car. Besides ODBII engine codes the car can also produce error codes for transmission problems (Tiptronic), PSM, and ABS. The seconda
  14. Not quite... The Secondary Air Pump IS the emissions pump. It's function is to improve emissions and to heat the three-way catalytic converter (TWC) faster, the secondary air injection pump is activated after the engine is started when cold, thus blowing secondary air behind the exhaust valves. If the engine temperature at start-up is less than -10 °C , the secondary air injection pump is disabled until the engine temperature has reached more than 44 °C . If the engine is started in a temperature range between -10 °C and 60 °C , the secondary air injection system is activated for a time dep
  15. Any year car with memory seats. The memory function is what saves the setting.
  16. C1 is engine electronics. I would remove the carpet cover behind the rear seats and then rotate the electronics mount up. Then make sure the DME cable is plugged in and tight. Also, look for chaffing or damaged wires there.
  17. All MY02 and C4S, GT3, TT, and GT2 use 999 053 042 07 - but the wheel hub is different so I do not know if it will fit correctly or not. Porsche has a newer wheel bearing for the Carrera's 999 053 041 03. Is this what you're using for replacement or the older 999 053 041 02?
  18. My understanding is that the silver latches are no longer available - unless you can find a dealer that has some in old stock. Porsche started using electric switches instead in MY2001- on Carrera's. Some folks are spraying them with Wurth Silver Wheel paint then with Wurth Clear Coat Wheel paint. There is a DIY in my DIY section here.
  19. Hmm... perhaps the dealer should have read TSB 8/99 1940 Coolant Expansion Tank (dated 10-22-99) - "Concern: Replacing the coolant expansion tank when an engine is replaced" that instructs them to change the coolant tank to the newer version whenever an engine is replaced. They might have saved you this trouble.
  20. 955 618 040 02 Trailer Coupling Control Unit It has been changed twice (00 and 01). This is the latest number but I don't know the differences.
  21. The same tire jack is used for the 996, Boxster, TT/GT2. The GT3 does not have a tire jack as standard - they have a compressed air bottle instead. You should be able to use that same jack on a GT3 - but there may not be a proper place to stow it in the car.
