  1. So my 2000 996 C4 started to have issues with driver side xenon headlight turning off and in at bumps and when it did not turn back on I just had to turn them off and back on via headlight switch. Also I could have car running with headlights on at a stop light and randomly one if the headlights would flicker quickly off and on. So after some research I discovered that the headlight was not seated correctly because the headlight bracket was cracked where the connector receptacle is heald in place. here is what I replaced both driver & passenger: headlight brackets headlight ignitors (not ballasts) d2s bulbs After all this it’s still doing the same things... any ideas??
  2. Andre so you are also in Northern California and know your way around convertible tops? Man I could use your help, I have a 2000 convertible 996 and I can’t get my clamshell to open via button on dash or key in door. I could come to you if you are free on the weekend?
  3. Can anyone recommend a convertible repair shop in Northern California (Sacramento area) that can diagnose and repair my 2000 Carrera’s top. The clamshell won’t open, I have tried two threaded Allen bolts and seems the 3 latches won’t release so its time to get someone that knows how to diagnose and repair.
  4. Well Andre, from what I can tell I must have had a weak part to begin with, definetly something to do with both left and right flaps mechanisms. I removed the back seat board and took four pictures. One picture shows the piece that broke off. Another picture shows the driver side flap not broken, but the threaded bolt wall thread is starting to break. Another picture shows some die cast part (broken) that held in a threaded bolt in place as passenger side flap opened and closed. Another picture is of passenger side flap with part that is broken. So obviously I need to have both left and right flap units replaced. Other issue is the the clamshell latch mechanism is not functioning either. Will not open or close to release clamshell. So question is, since I cannot turn the passenger side flap to open or close it, and the clamshell latch will not release, how do I manually unlock the latch so I can at least get the convertible top to get it into service position?
  5. Loren I checked all 3 fuses all are good... Anything else I should look at?
  6. Well stil not fixed, I think I busted something. While following the instructions to manually opening the clamshell using the provided Allen tool on the bolts on the rear passenger side flap and I heard a snap and then the Allen tool just spun freely so I must have broke a screw... Help! How can I open the clamshell to see what's broke now?
  7. Loren I checked all 3 fuses all are good... Anything else I should look at?
  8. My 2000 c4 top has always worked, that is until today. Handbrake is on, engine lid is closed, but when I press the dash button nothing happens,meaning the clam lid (not convertible top) does not open up. I hooked up my Durametric and error says: Timed Out Any thoughts....
  9. My only FOB remote is failing after 10 years, I've changed batteries in it and now I'm having to open door with key on driver door. It's a 2000 carrera 4 Cabrio. Called Niello Porsche dealer they quoted $485 to replace and program it. I've heard that you can order fob remote head part from sunset porsche so I called them and they are priced at 149 plus shipping, which is good so does anyone know of a local Indy near Sacracramento, CA area that can program it fully for less than dealer dealer?
  10. I'm looking to ID and get part number for this hose for my 2000 Porsche 996 c4. I connects to expansion tank and has a "T" split that faces up. Mine is leaking right at "T" so I gotta by a new one. Anyone?
  11. Other than the fuse on the driver side kick panel, is there other fuses for this fan?
