neil.c replied to effusion_01's topic in 997-1 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 2S, Carrera 4S)It is the water pressure that lifts the headlight washers so if one side isn't working it could still be frozen. It is usually the water in the pipes that freezes (in the UK anyway) as there is less volume, the light could be a faulty sender unit.
neil.c replied to GranburyChuck's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)I haven't looked but is the rear bushing designed to move to take up the slack? If so it can be moved backwards to allow more clearance removing the need to grind material off of it.
neil.c replied to PAULSPEED's topic in 997-1 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 2S, Carrera 4S)I would start by measuring the battery voltage with the engine running and with it awitched off. The battery voltage should be around 12.2 volts without the engine running and it should go up to about 13.6 volts (charging voltage) with the engine running.
Did it turn over on the bench before it was fitted to the car?
How long will you be away for? I suggest pumping up the tyres or getting the wheels off the groundand connecting the car to a battery conditioner ( cars in the UK have remote batttery backup on the alarm so you can't leave the battery disconnected, don't know if this is the same in your market).
neil.c replied to WeekendWonder's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Shame you didn't grab a picture, but it sounds as though something has made contact with the tyre over a period of time
neil.c replied to DMoss84's topic in 997-1 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 2S, Carrera 4S)Looking at the width and offset I think the fronts will fit as 987 and 997 are the same at 8" and 57 mm ET, the rears will be more interesting though as the 997 runs 2" wider rear rims than the 987
neil.c replied to fakafer's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Do you not have an econ button?
neil.c replied to tshegos's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)The diy stuff never worked for me, you most likely have a leak and as it costs about the same to have it diagnosed as it does to buy the diy stuff to me it is a no-brainer
neil.c replied to geoff's topic in 997-1 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 2S, Carrera 4S)Could be it has expanded in the sunshine I have seen this before on black plastic trim
neil.c replied to pstarenas's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)if there is an abs fault that would also generate a psm fault/ failure brake light switch failure usually only generates a psm failure and not abs failure. sounds like a faulty wheel sensor to me
neil.c replied to Hombre's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Must be a good Technician if he can evaluate the life of your cluch down to the last few k miles from the ball of his foot
