KeithBenoit posted a topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)I have a 2004 996 4s Cab. While cleaning my tires/rims off of the car, I noticed my bump stops are literally falling apart. I have noticed that the front end seems very soft. So I’m thinking it’s time to improve the ride. what are the recommendations on coil over struts: looking for a good feel. Not too hard but not too mushy. Thanks
Thanks, but are you using a 3/4 or 1/2 inch torq wrench?
Getting ready to remove my tires to clean and want to torq them back to specs. Before I buy a torq wrench, I would like to know should I get the 3/4 or 1/2 inch wrench? Thanks in advance for the advise.
Ok, just check with a Porsche mechanic who showed me the leak is in the front middle of the car and probably is the power steering rod. Maybe a line. Hopefully just a seal. The power steering itself is very expensive. I should know later this week after he puts it on a lift.
On my garage floor is the below pic. Looks like lite oil. I check the underneath and I can’t find any oil. However the brake reservoir is below the min. line. How can I know for sure!
KeithBenoit replied to KeithBenoit's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Thanks. I’ll try that.

I have a 2004 Carrera C4s Cab and I am getting ready to change the belt. Its looks good, but I am concerned with the age of it. I was recently told by a Porsche mechanic that when I put a new belt on it, the water pump will soon go. He further said that the tension from the new belt is greater than the old one and the strain from the new one will make the pump go soon after. Then, he told me that a new water pump is approximately $1000.00 bucks. Does anyone have any knowledge about new belts verses old belts ruining the water pump??
KeithBenoit replied to KeithBenoit's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)That's my thinking as well. Thanks.
Should I replace with OEM at premium prices or local auto parts store who sell the 18" blades are sufficient?
Thanks. Getting new tires soon. Will have the dealer program it then.
Hey everyone, I have a 2004 c4s cab and looking in the owners manual it says that you need to have your local porsche dealer program your car to automatically lock at 5 mph. Can I program it myself without having to take it to the dealer? Any DIY'ers?? Thanks.
I have the Carerra 4s Cab. Has anyone noticed that it's very easy to go into reverse when you think you are going into first gear? This has happened to me several times at red lights. Not that big of a deal, just wondering if this is common. Thanks.
THanks everyone for the advise. I'm loving my Porsche. I will try to attach a pic or two.
Thanks for the response.
