1schoir, Not a problem... actaully I know how to remove the door panel... I can't believe the body shop didn't. They broke the door handle and put dents around the door from prying out the panel. I already don't have any faith left in them. My car was in an accident back in June. I'm still fighting with the owner because the repair was not done correctly and he need to redo the repairs.
colonel replied to frafoss's topic in 997-1 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 2S, Carrera 4S)from my memory... 1) remove the door mirror cover, left up and then pull. Be very careful that you don't break the tab. It's part of the gasket. If you break it you will need to replace the entire window gasket. 2) remove the screws using a torx screwdriver. I forget the exact size a. remove the door handle, it's behind the round cap, carefully remove the cap, b. near the door mirror cover c. behind the rear door (see part #14, #4) d. pull up #16 from the door pocket cover side, you will see a screw inside e. carefully pry out the door bottom light, you will see a screw inside. 3) carefully pull out the door panel. you may need to use some force. 4) there are 9 clips that you may need to replace because you may damage it from removing them. good luck
Anyone know how to safely remove the upper part of the inside door handle(grab hande)? Not the silver door pull? My stupid body shop broke it while trying to remove the inside door panel. Thanks.
Thanks Loren, Yes, one of the headlight is new. I'd guess I need to bring the car to the dealer.
Hi, I just got my car from the body shop for deer accident repair. One headlight was replaced and the other was removed for body painting. Now, I have a check warningl light for both left and right headlight. Do I need to bring to the dealer to reset the warnings? Thanks.
In competition as a rule your tyres when hot should equal the recommended road pressures provided by the manufacturer. This applies to 18" and 19" "r" spec tyres such as fitted to the GT3 997. 32 PSI Front and 39 PSI would be an appropriate pressure for regular use when cold and this pressuers should be maintained as a "hot" pressure during competition. For road use when "wet" using the Michelin Pilot Sport Cups I suggest increasing the PSI to 35 Front and 43 Rear . Thanks. I think I will stick with the C2S recommended pressure for road use.
over price. even for porsche. It said it's built for strenght, but the key is that the wheel to be mount/dismount has no load, just the weight of the wheel, plus you are only using it for a very short period of time (a few mintues at most). Way over engineered.
very similar. I can post a picture when I have a chance.
My stupid dealer did not know what I was talking about. So I bought one from MBenz parts. They have 2 sizes (M12 and M14), M14 for ML SUVs.
Where did you get aluminum pedals and foot rest? (Email address?) Approx. cost? Thanks sorry for the real late reply. I got them from carnewal for 199 euro. it's a Ruf lookalike. I think you can get the from other vendors on ebay for cheaper price. I still haven't put them on yet!
There is no jack nor threaded bolt in my 05 997 C2S. I don't think they are in US cars? Does anyone has them? Thanks
Hello, In the owner's manual, it said there is a assembly aid for changing a wheel. I can't find it. Is it in the tool box? Thanks
