  1. Do a search for Homelink here... there are a couple of guys working on this. Porsche is (unfortunately) not a Homelink customer.
  2. 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.
  3. I don't see anything more than that in any of the manuals. Give Horst a try at The Becker Board
  4. I don't see anything that in any of the manuals. Give Horst a try at The Becker Board
  5. 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.
  6. Could be a rock or pebble caught in the splash shield. That is fairly common.
  7. I guess you mean like this? I'll send you details via email. Be very careful not to break the plastic hinge pins on the mirror cover.
  8. The muffler pipe does not go into the cat pipe they are joined by the cat sleeve (4). Your kit should have had new sleeves. If not then you will need to loosen the sleeve bolts and spread the sleeves (not the pipes).
  9. 1. Carefully pry the clothes hanger up and off the top of the B pillar. 2. Pull inwards until that C pillar piece comes off. You may have to replace the sheetmetal clips if they get bent or break.
  10. Did you try this? The little speaker in the display should then have a slash through it.
  11. To my understanding the thermostat has not changed since introduction (including the 3.6 liter update).
  12. The number I gave above is for the pre MY02 (3.4 liter) cars so it should fit fine.
  13. In MY99 a C2 could have nothing or Traction Control. All MY99 C4s had PSM (and egas).
  14. Might I ask what you are planning to lube? Do you have a problem with squeaking or ? Pad replacement is covered in 'Loren's DIY pages" link at the top of each page.
  15. Have a look at ninerguru's DIY with pics here 996 106 147 56 is the tank that is shown for cars prior to MY01. Double check with a dealer as they have changed these 3 or 4 times and my parts list is Nov 2003. The cap is: 996 106 447 01
  16. An RMS leak is dead center under the car right between the engine and transmission. Sounds like a valve cover to me if it is near a wheel. Either way a good dealer will check and fix any and all leaks when you take it in.
  17. Well, the hinge kit would have everything you need and could be better (stronger) than the newer factory pieces. The hinge kit includes: hinge plate, two U-brackets, two 4mm pop rivets. All pieces are metal. Depending on the new console you got it may or may not work with the factory parts (which use self-tapping screws). Here are the factory parts (you may not need all of these): 996 552 691 00 retaining belt with retaining pin (console side) 996 552 507 00 hinge MY02- 999 073 228 09 self tapping screws 4.8 x 13 (2 needed) 996 552 795 01 spring 996 552 605 00 hinge pin (cove
  18. The filter is inside a cannister. A strap wrench will likely work for removal. You will want to be extra careful putting the filter back on. It is made of plastic and it can be broken. That is why most folks buy the removal wrench and then put it back on using a torque wrench.
  19. I use the ph cleaner followed by the leather conditioner on my Boxster Red interior and it works great. 2-3 times per year. I used this on my previous Porsches also with good results. IMHO if you want your leather to last you need to treat it like your own skin. Avoid to much sun, moisture and rough treatment and it will last a long time. :D
