  1. It’s worth repairing to make it a driver provided you understand any money you sink into it you won’t ever get back and may cost more than getting a running example. On a separate note, your car sounds like a good donor for a super lite project.
  2. Unfortunately it’s not. Keep in mind with the jacks occupying the sides of the vehicles, access is limited to the front and rear, and it will be difficult to get yourself and other equipment accessible for this type of job. To clarify, there may be enough physical space, but not necessarily working space.
  3. As Loren indicated seats mounts are important. Here are some other things to consider. - seat type: reclinable vs fixed bucket - seat belt buckle: different seats types accommodate seat belts differently, you’ll all need to figure out wiring if you don’t use the oem buckle - egress and ingress: fixed buckets are harder to get in and out of - seat sizing and bolstering: this is a matter of your preference If you can test fit a seat, that would help immensely. Good luck with your search. Personally, I went with Oem fixed buckets, and prefer
  4. Just did my seat belt harness mod, and wanted to confirm for others out there that Patrick's statement about leaving the circuit open for pin 1 and 4 will remove the seatbelt warning light. Another way of looking at this would be to use the passenger seatbelt buckle for the driver side which would yield the same result. I originally had jumped 1 and 4 which kept the light on, removing the jumper disabled the light. Thank you all for your knowledge and insight.
  5. You may not alway needs to replace the fuel sending unit, I've added a DIY 996TT Fuel Sending Unit "Fuel Sensor Failure" Hope this helps all that run into this problem.
  6. It's likely the voltage regulator as noted earlier. I had a similar issue on my daily driver. I installed a refurbished alternator and that was money down the drain. You are better off buying a new voltage regulator. If you absolutely want to be sure. Measure the voltage of the battery while the car is running with a multimeter. The voltage reading should be steady. A bad voltage regulator will show a low or fluctuating rate which causes the battery not to charge properly.
  7. 996TT Fuel Sending Unit "Fuel Sensor Failure" (updated with pics) I was experiencing the common "Fuel Sensor Failure" error a week later upon buying my new to me 2002 996TT. There wasn't much information on the web, I hope this will be informative for others. So here are the symptoms that I was experiencing. My fuel gauge would randomly drop to empty with the low fuel light coming on and blink continuously, this would immediately be followed by the message "Fuel Sensor Failure". The range indicator would show - - MPG. After driving momentarily driving this e
