MagnusB replied to PAULSPEED's topic in 997-1 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 2S, Carrera 4S)Exactly same issue here. What part and where do I buy it for $115? I see prices way above that.
MagnusB posted a topic in 997-1 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 2S, Carrera 4S)My PCM broke and I bought a used one and replaced it. Most things works just fine but I lost the "individual memory" and "sports chrono" settings etc. It also nags me with an error on startup about the Navigation. The car it came from had a navigation unit. My assumption is it would just be to load the codes with a PIWIS and remove the Navigation unit and CD changer it thinks it has? I had it at a dealer and they say they can't get it to work. If I understand the notes they can't load the codes for some reason. Any ideas?
MagnusB replied to JG07997's topic in 997-1 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 2S, Carrera 4S)My Dension 500 works great with bluetooth but you need that blue extra "box" connected.
MagnusB replied to MagnusB's topic in 997-1 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 2S, Carrera 4S)It was the Master Brake cylinder :-)
Do you know which bracket? I get a noise between 2500-2800 rpm. Extremely annoying.
MagnusB posted a topic in 997-1 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 2S, Carrera 4S)What can this issue be? - Firm brake pedal with engine off. - Soft brake pedal giving way all the way to the floor slooooowly with engine on. - No visible fluid leakage and reservoir level stays same even if I continue pumping the brake over and over. I have tried bleeding the brakes with Motive Power bleeder to see if that helped but no. Is it the Brake booster or something else?
Turned out to be a cracked clutch finger disc resulting in uneven fingers. So when releasing the clutch about 75% of them hit the clutch initially which was causing the juddering.
Thanks, something to do tomorrow :-)
30k miles on both. How do you bleed the slave cylinder?
Today on my way home from work something happened with the clutch. It feels fine/normal when pressing down but when I release it hesitates/judders and the engagement feels weird. Once it's up the car drives fine in gear. The weird thing is that when the engine is off it feels normal when I press and release the clutch. It does squeak a tiny bit though. If I start the engine, in neutral and press/release I feel the judder on the way up.
MagnusB replied to emerson69's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)For the small part, how?
I tried to remove the panel but the rear seat holder uses a hex bolt of some weird measurement. Metric 2.5 is too big and 2 is too small. Grrr. Do they use US sizes in a Porsche??
How did you replace it? I need to open everything up and see what's wrong with my left rear quarter window. There was a bad noise and now it doesn't work. I can hear an engine noise but nothing happens.
Will a 2002-2005 6-speed manual transmission work in a 1999 car?
MagnusB replied to ultramens's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)How do you calibrate the top? I have the Smart Top. When opening with the Smart Top the cab closes properly but the lid stops two inches from closed for some reason. If I then use the button it closes properly.
