  1. Have a look at the thread here The fan is not a concern the leak near the cap is. The cap AND the tank should both be pressure tested by your dealer. If either or both fail the pressure test then they need to be replaced. A fairly common problem on the earlier 996's.
  2. If your car is new then all updates should have been done at the factory during production. If a TSB came out while the car was in transit then the dealer should perform the work before the car is delivered. Congratulations! :clapping:
  3. Tony, The parts don't show up in the current price list - which likely means you can't get them any more or they must be special ordered. I'll look through my old price lists and see if I can find the numbers so you can have a dealer see if there are some in stock anywhere. Option 2 is to remove them and paint them. A couple folks have said that is not too hard to do. Option 3 would be to find a Carrera (or Boxster if you don't mind black ones) at a parts yard. Found these is the RoW price list. Maybe someone can get these from Europe still? For LHD cars: 996 551 511 07 V01 Handle
  4. My understanding is that once a fault code has occurred the light will stay on until it has been cleared with a PST2 or scan tool. This is true even if fault corrected itself during the next ignition (on). Some faults could cause the airbag not to deploy but in most cases it still should.

    Thanks Loren

    You are welcome... but also a thank you to the first folks that helped test the procedure. I don't have all of these cars you know... right now I'm down to just one Porsche :lol:
  6. 1. Using the tip of a screwdriver, carefully lever out the right-hand corner segment of the lens glass. Remove the corner segment from the lock. 2. Turn lock of additional brake light counter-clockwise by approx. 90 degrees and remove. 3. Disconnect electrical plug connection and disengage all fastening tabs of the bulb holder.
  7. I traced Ed's work as it pertains to a Carrera and the wiring specified in Ed's post are the same for a MY2001 996. You should be able to use Ed's instructions as they are. The only difference will be that you will be running the 3 wires to the DME under the center console carpet to the rear of the car. Here is how you get to the DME.
  8. Do you have the details of what Ed did? Could you post them here or email them to me?
  9. Most Walmart's and Target's carry it.
  10. That will likely work. I would use a coat or two of Wurth Clear Coat over them.
  11. I think that is the right stuff but my understanding is that the silver is covered with a few coats of clear. Have a look at NASA Racer Pete's DIY repair here
  12. I have some new TSBs coming... they are being mailed to me. As soon as I have the info I'll post it here. All I have right now is the NHTSA (US DOT) Recall notice:

  14. Hmm.... both the original Aerokit Cup and Aerokit Cup II parts lists show the 996 612 070 51 Wiring Harness. The 996 612 070 04 Wiring Harness does show up as a valid part in another kit. The -04 kit looks like the one for no stop lamp and the -51 looks like it does support the stop lamp -- but I do not really any other know the differences. If you are getting the smaller "Carrera" style spoiler like Don's then that is the one for that kit (but it should have come with the kit). Also, interesting that the -51 part shows a price of $40.70 (retail) and the -04 shows $94.70 (retail).
  15. Short version -- egas is just an electronic sensing and moving of the throttle position as opposed to the older method using a physical throttle cable. All C2 and C4 cars EXCEPT MY99 C2's have e-gas.
  16. 996 107 981 00 Protective Plate (3.4 engines only) Price as of Nov 2003 was $110 (retail)
  17. That is pretty normal to come on at idle after coming off the freeway. It is all based on the O2 measurement before and after the cats. Since you say it comes on at idle when you start it up I would look for a loose or worn wires and supply air/vacuum lines. If you are getting an error code then it means that it can not adjust the air injection mixture. This is usually a leaking line or faulty changeover valve. The valves are operated by solenoids so it could also be wiring or a solenoid that is failing when it is hot.
  18. Which Aerokit is it? The Aerokit II comes with a replacement (short) wiring harness. In the older kit they tell you to remove the the light bulb from the instrument cluster.
  19. The parts list says MY01 and newer but I do not know why they would not fit.
  20. Yes. I don't see why not. You still have a rear spoiler it just raises at speed.
  21. We are talking pre MY02 cars (and kits) here... right? 1. Yes and no. The Carrera Rear spoiler kit is approved with either the standard bumper or the Aerokit Cup front bumper. 2. Yes. The Aerokit Cup front bumper replaces the entire front bumper and it has a small lip spoiler at the bottom. Here is the Aerokit Cup front bumper with lower spoiler on my car. (p.s. the third radiator is an option - lol)
  22. 1. Use the Search button at the top right of each page. 2. In the Search box enter: Instrument Cluster 3. Choose All Forums in the drop down list. 4. Click on "Perform the Search" button. Lots of info here... :D
