Greg replied to Eric (Plug Guy)'s topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)My bodyshop could not get the tabs to compress enough to remove the fuel filler door (Step A). Eventually they had to break the plastic around the metal hinge pin (Step Z, not pictured). Even with the door removed, I could not extract the clips cleanly. So, I removed the remaining plastic in pieces(Step @#!%, not pictured). BMW sells an identical hinge (apparently much cheaper than Porsche). When I picked up the fuel filler door, the new hinge was attached. I just snapped it into place.

Greg replied to amajestro's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)It would be easier to pay for all expenses up front and then submit a bill to the insurance company. Does the law force you to work through the system set up by the insurance company? The insurance company has a contract with the other person, not you. When my car was hit I had to take a half day off to have my car inspected. I would have rather just told them where it will be from 8-5 and let them come to it.
Greg replied to keoni1978's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)My 2001 used T-27 Torx instead of T-25. I used some cheapo bits from Ace, maybe they were labelled wrong.
Everything above is true. New is usually better. But a pristine 83 is a lot better than an abused 89. Look at lots of cars and learn the relative strengths of each. Take a look at anything in the market that fits your needs and don't narrow your search needlessly. Also, find a shop you trust to do the prepurchase inspections.
Greg replied to Hroussard's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Sometimes the dealer or a previous owner will put the code on the option list pasted to the hood.
Try EagleOne A2Z. Very strong. No negative effect on my wheels. I spray on, brush, then hose off. http://autopia.org/review/censura.php?cmd=details&itemid=158
Greg replied to DeAd-EyE's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Several of my wrenches are duplicates. Occasionally the fastener has a bolt and nut of the same size and are in a space that only wrenches will reach.
Greg replied to Greg's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Thanks!
Greg replied to mdillian3690's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)I have the Porsche air compressor. It works but takes a while.
Greg replied to Greg's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Thank you all for the advice!!
I would like to get a torque wrench. Which one should I buy for typical DIY automotive projects? There is a Sears nearby, I also have a Griot's catalog. Thanks
I use Novus Clean and Shine and the Fine Scratch Remover on the plastic rear window of my cab. They keep the window clear and hide the fine scratches. They do not return it to perfect. I think the scratch remover is actually a "scratch filler." (Just a gut feeling) I have not used the Heavy Scratch Remover, it may be abrasive and that may be what you need if the first two do not solve the problem. Another manufacturer to look at is Meguiars.
