    04 986 S
  1. Hello- Just got my car back last week from a dealer oil change (04 S). I happen to be washing the car, and I peered into the side vents - the driver side has a screen behind it. The passenger side, however, does not have one, and I think I can see clear through to the engine. Is this correct? I somehow doubt it, since the opening looks the same as the driver side. If it should have it, the next question is there any reason this would be removed during a yearly service, which was basically an oil change and a brake fluid flush (car has 10k). I just wanted to know whether I should blame the dealer for this. Thanks.
  2. Thanks for the info... since the squeak is now gone, I don't find the click as offensive... but if it starts to bother me, I will do the "hack" described above.
  3. Hello- I just brought my 04 S in for service, one of my complaints being that the clutch pedal squeaks and clicks. They fixed the squeak by lubricating it, however they say the click is normal. I understand that manual cars have a switch so you don't start the car with the car in gear, but out of all of my stick cars, I have never heard them click. Can anyone verify for me that the clutch pedal should in fact click when depressed? It happens when it is almost completely depressed, when I imagine the switch is activated. It's not real loud, but loud enough where I can hear it if I don't have the radio on. Thanks!
  4. Anybody have one in the NJ area? I want to enable OBC and pair my radio with the DME.
  5. I am aware of the need to sync it, I just didn't think it would continuously power cycle itself. I would've expected it to say something on the screen or not do anything at all.
  6. Thanks for the info. I also have one other thing to look into - I saw on ppbb someone who posted that his CDR23 did the power cycling thing when his battery was shot. Mine is actually a brand new Optima that I installed before doing the radio - I have yet to start the car with it in, or charge it, so it could just be the fact that the battery is low on power. I will either charge the new battery or put back in the old one to see if that resolves the problem.
  7. Hello- My 04 S came to me with a aftermarket radio already installed. I decided to go back to the factory CDR23 since I didn't like the replacement radio. I purchased another CDR23 from an 03 911 off of ebay since the PO didn't have the old radio. I know I need to get them paired, and my car is going into the shop soon for service, however after I hooked up the replacement CDR23, it just continually turns itself on and says PORSCHE, then turns off and back on again, saying PORSCHE again. It does this continually with the car off and the key out of the ignition. Is this what an unpaired CDR23 will do until I have it paired, or do I have another underlying wiring problem? I clipped in a small yellow connector, a larger black connector, and a small round black connector. I suppose the other possibility is a defective radio, since all I had was the word of the seller that it had functioned properly when removed. Thanks for the help!
  8. Suncoast Porsche has the installation kit for $65: http://e-partssales.com/Merchant2/merchant...y_Code=POTEBXEX
  9. Is anyone else having trouble seeing the pictures? I am considering this, and would really like to see these if possible. Thanks!
  10. I found this thread- http://www.renntech.org/forums/index.php?showtopic=11577 Which says that the speakers are 5.25", with 1" tweeters. Has anyone had luck with replacing these? Also, is there anywhere where you still get Focal 5ws speakers? Thanks!
  11. Hello- I am replacing the head unit and speakers on my 04S. It has the Bose digital setup (with the rear deck speakers). I am thinking since I am replacing the head unit, amp, and the dash and the door speakers, I should also replace the rear speakers. Does anyone know if the drivers in this enclosure can be replaced, and if so, what size are they? Any recommendations? Also, I am assuming my door and dash speakers are the same size as other years? The grille looks a little different on the doors from what I have seen in pictures, but I'll have to take another look. Thanks for the help!
  12. Loren- Thanks! Wasn't sure if they were same.
  13. I would like to have a spare PSE relay before modifying the existing one. I know the part number for a 996 is 996 618 980 03 RELAY, SPORT EXHAUST $122.03 (as of Dec. 2004), but does anyone know the part number for the part on a 986? My car has the factory installed PSE. Thanks!
