  1. Loren's post in VIN decoding question was marked as the answer   
    As far as I know only by looking up the VIN and factory options.
  2. Loren's post in Plastic screw cover tail light Cayenne was marked as the answer   
    955 631 475 00 Cap -- US MSRP $ 9.17 each
    or you could try a salvage yard.
  3. Loren's post in Illuminated stalks? was marked as the answer   
    Sorry, they are not illuminated.
  4. Loren's post in Ejecting a CD with no power was marked as the answer   
    I think you need to hook up to 12 volts and ground.
  5. Loren's post in '01 996TT Center console bin wires was marked as the answer   
    I would remove the extra wires from the 4 pin connector (phone prep connector). Then put friction tape and electrical tape on the repaired wires. Or, better yet...  cut them, prepare a proper (soldered) spice with heat shrink tubing.
    Brown - ground 
    Yellow/Black - telephone mute 
    Green/Black - switched 12 volts 
    Red/Green - unswitched 12 volts
  6. Loren's post in Disconnecting the air bag was marked as the answer   
    Do you like puzzles? Most of the Porsche connectors have locking mechanisms.
    As I recall this one slides (pink part) up to release the connector.
  7. Loren's post in Does the three spoke steering wheel suffer from the same bushing/conta was marked as the answer   
    Not really that I have seen.
    I think there is less mass (weight) on the 3 spoke due to retaining support's triangular design.
  8. Loren's post in Amplifier bracket mounting fastener was marked as the answer   
    999 500 078 00 Speed Nut -- US MSRP $4.55 each
  9. Loren's post in Went to change my pads and found this broken part... what is it? was marked as the answer   
    996-341-371-03 Support -- US MSRP $4.37 each
    You will also likely need 900-380-015-01 Nut -- US MSRP $0.89 each
  10. Loren's post in Wheel sensor wire part number was marked as the answer   
    Porsche only sells one harness repair kit for each axle side.
    For the Left Rear - 996 612 953 01 Repair Kit Harness -- US MSRP $128.89
    For the right Rear - 996 612 954 01 Repair Kit Harness -- US MSRP $128.89

  14. Loren's post in 996 C4 coupe 1999 Audio enhancement was marked as the answer   
    Digital Sound Processing (DSP) lDigital sound processingl (DSP) enabling the digital processing of speech and music in the amplifier is another optional extra. The sound package forms the basis. Apart from further acoustic adaptation to the vehicle, this function also allows spatial acoustic simulation. As a result, pre- and  postreflection can be mixed artificially to give, for example, a concert hall effect. Different acoustic spatial effects can be simulated with DSP. On request, acoustic adjustment can be selected to optimize this spatial impression for the driver's seat or passenger's seat.   Furthermore, programmed acoustic patterns can be stored and called up again. The separate operator unit is housed in the center console at the front of the passenger compartment. Different acoustic adjustments can be selected using the various buttons provided.   Other equalizer functions (selectable frequency band) with several amplification levels can be called up using the optional extra information and navigation system (PCM). The DSP facility is operated entirely from the screen controls. The CD player (CD radio or CD changer) is recommended for optimum DSP sound quality).     Functions:   DSP button When the OSP facility is switched on, the functions last activated are switched on again.   DYN button Speed-dependent volume and acoustic control is switched on/off using this button.   POS button The row of LEOs briefly light up when the POS button is pressed. The listener's position can be spatially adjusted to the driver, passenger, or the middle of the vehicle using the arrow buttons. The LEOs are lit according to the setting.   HiFi-classic-pop buttons A permanently defined acoustic pattern is produced when these buttons are actuated. The function can be deactivated by selecting a different acoustic pattern.   User button The user function is used to create individual acoustic patterns using the room and echo buttons. Spatial impression and echo effect can be changed from low (lefthand LEO) to high (all LEOs) using the arrow buttons.   MI, M2, M3 memory buttons Permanently defined or individually created acoustic patterns can be stored and called using these buttons. The listener's position (POS button) and speed-dependent volume control (OYN button) functions can be stored in the memory together with the acoustic patterns.   • Storing: Press the desired memory button for approx. 2 seconds. • Selecting: Press the desired memory button.  
  15. Loren's post in Antenna booster(s)? was marked as the answer   
    No they have not been superseded in my list (January 2015) - they are 996 numbers.
    997 series cars would have PCM 3 and you have PCM 2.1 - they are very different.
  16. Loren's post in What is this even called? was marked as the answer   
    They are just called cover in the parts list.
    You will find them in the parts list section for the underbody and wheel well liners.
  17. Loren's post in Parts Request: Front License Plate Parts for MY04 996 C2 was marked as the answer   
    Item 29 is an H-shaped license bracket (as shown in the diagram) or the plastic holder you have shown - I have seen both.
    Here is the same info for the rear licence...

  18. Loren's post in Idle pulley part numbers '03 Carrera Coupe manual transmission was marked as the answer   
    Pulley (item 12) 997 102 119 00 -- US MSRP $100.48
    Pulley (item 15) 997 102 118 00 -- US MSRP $100.48
    These are both upgraded parts which should reduce failures.
  19. Loren's post in Information on oil level is currently not available was marked as the answer   
    IMHO... it is always best to be a little below full - as there are no marks above full and it is easy to over fill.
  20. Loren's post in 8Jx18 front wheels on a pre-facelift 996 that 'should' use 7.5 was marked as the answer   
    8" fronts are fine - I have them on my MY99 - stay with the same offset and you can go to a 235 front without rubbing.
  21. Loren's post in 997.2 TT Spark Plug Torque Specs and Gap was marked as the answer   
    New spark plugs - 22 ftlb.
    Re-used spark plugs - 19 ftlb.
    Ignition coils - 7.5 ftlb.
    0.8 +- 0.1 mm gap
  22. Loren's post in Cab reset was marked as the answer   
    "Question; Can the Durametic re-set/re-calibrate the top?"
    Yes, Durametric can re-calibrate the cab top.
    "Also can the Durametic set the key "fob" to open the hood "trunk" and allow the horn to alert on fob locking."
    No, Durametric can not program functions that are not available in the 996
  23. Loren's post in check engine light was marked as the answer   
    It should go off on it's own.
    There may also be some idle "re-learning" that will clear up in the first few miles.
  24. Loren's post in rubber band like bits in oil filter was marked as the answer   
    Looks like small pieces of case sealant - not that unusual. They should not cause any harm.
  25. Loren's post in 997 Throttle Body on a 996 was marked as the answer   
    Yes, it should be a direct replacement - with no programming needed.
