  1. Hi all quick update, so far so good! Could someone move this to 996? I posted in this area in error. Thank you! Jazz
  2. Hi all, As I lurk all the time, I thought I'd post what I have going on for the benefit of anyone that can use it. Lately I've been having the dreaded intermittent cranks but won't start situation. It seems to occur mostly when the engine is warm. If left for an hour it starts up. It happens twice in a day, or not for 3 weeks, totally random. The car runs fine when its running. It's only stalled once while running. I was idling in the parking lot. Just as I noticed rpms swinging between about 780 and 730ishm dead. Started an hour later. I tried a fully charged, brand
  3. A strange bonus is that the clutch feels much much nicer though it was not replaced? Any thoughts on why this is?
  4. Hi...the only solution I considered and used was the LN bearing. I suppose you could replace it with Porsche part if you were a gambling type...lol. I didn't research everything that might be available as the LN was clearly the most popular solution so I just went with that.
  5. Okee. HELLGA'S back with a new ceramic dual bearing..whoot! Clutch was good... $1700 was the best I could do around here. Most wanted 3000 ish. What a load off :)
  6. Rob...it won't let me reply to you for some reason. Anyway, upgrade scheduled.
  7. Thanks for the quick response! I suppose its going to be a two weeker in the shop then...grrrrr! I may die without my Hellga for two weeks..... A quick note... I just called another shop and posed this bearing question. The answer was "Its a single row". Doesn't seem the answer should have been so certain? -Jazz
  8. Hi all, I've been researching this bearing business and am considering replacing as a preventative. Car is a 2000 C4 with 65,000 miles on it. Runs good, no problems at all. I was given a nice quote of 1700.00 at my local Indie who has done a few of these, so it is tempting! My question is, with a VIN and an engine number, it appears that you still can't be sure of which bearing is in the car. So how do I order the parts??? Do you think they would send both and accept a return? What I'm trying to avoid is the car in the shop while the wrong bearing comes...gets sent back...new be
  9. Hi all, I have a 2000 C4 with 64000 on it. I know that's not super high miles but I just wanted to add to the positives for this great little car. It is a joy and I am happy to be able to get in on a 911 at an affordable price. I had to do a reverse light switch and ignition switch. IMS (1700.00 at indie who's done a few) and RMS coming up as a preventative measure. No noises or leaks...solid.
  10. So I went and got a 2004 ignition switch ( 4B0 905 849 ), put it in the 2000 which called for 4A0 905 849 B according to everything....VROOOM! All good! Maybe someone before me changed something under there?? And NAPA had it in stock...23.00 USD -= Ivan
  11. Oiieee, on hold until I figure my ignition switch out! LOL -=Jazz
  12. Hi all, So my recently purchased 2000 Carrera 4 had this in the glove box... So now, of course, the ignition started acting up, (warning lights would not come on with key in first position (except airbag light), no starter engagement... try try try..there it goes! ) I dug underneath to replace it. What I found was this.... As you can see, they are quite different, even though the poles are identical. The black one in the first picture has the part number you guys refer to by Meyle products 4A0 905 849 B... what gives? I tried installing it, but it seems that the key positions
  13. Fingers crossed..I'm hoping it's just gooped up or jammed and will respond to some tlc
  14. Ok..I'll give that a go in a couple of days and report back. Thanks! The way I figure..it's already broken..haha. Might as well have at it!
  15. It's in the in position...so little screwdrivers in the side?
  16. Hi all, I've seen the postings on removing the hazard switch. They all begin with "Turn on Hazards". My switch is stuck in the in position, which is why I"m trying to remove it to locate the issue. It is in the in position and feels very firm, there's zero movement. Ideas?? -= Jazz
