  1. Thanks for the help,, I learned a lesson on how to read the PET for un pictured items. Mike
  2. someone gave me a old part #99970342940, the new part number is 99970345740 which I see isn't the same in that it has a slot in it. kind of defeats the purpose of sealing moisture.
  3. No, it's a round plastic cover that you remove to get to 10 before you loosen assembly to drop out to remove strut. It's under the hood covers that are to the left and right of battery cover. Thank you, Mike
  4. Sorry, 03 Targa Front Struts , under cover, in between 3 bolts holding strut top hat THanks Mike I looked at every page of PET, so it you could tell number and page that would be great. THanks Mike
  5. Change Struts, Springs, shocks and Rear Sway Bar this weekend Quite a job w/o Lift, and hot humid weather, but glad it's done. Anyway, in the tear down, One item missing, that caused a little issue with top of strut nut becoming rusted and some watering getting in unprotected area near Left Side Strut and Wiper motor/linking Part the was missing was the Round Plastic black Strut Cover. In between the three nuts holding the strut Top hat in place. I've looked through the PET numerous time to no avail, If some one could point me to right page or part number it would be appreciated
  6. The H&R's come in different models depending on coupe or cab / Targa . Personally I think they are a better spring than the Eibach's as a lot of factory race cars used them.
  7. I'm Looking to buy a used H&R sport setup model 29513 made for standard 996 coupe. Catalog says use model 29513-2 for a Targa/Cab chassis. Called H&R and got a nice lady on the phone, but she wouldn't really answer my question, other than standard answer of we recommend 29513-2. What would be the differences other than -2 ? 150# weight difference in models. Will it fit rear shock/tower the same ? uses same shock so I'm thinking yes. I'm thinking it's the rear weight difference of the Targa/Cab, but should work /fit just the same. Anyone has this knowl
  8. He won't tell you. I've asked, But accoding to the Dupont /Spies Hecker chart Aluma Look is " ALU 03 EFFECT " and is listed for Cayenne trim etc. Code is 4W9 and Dupont stock code is X1070 Mike M 02 986S AS.GG.GG
  9. If you are referring to the cosmoline on the engine from the bottom side, I had good luck with using either Dupont enamel reducer or wipe down solvent. again both are Flammable, but safer than Gasoline I then polished my aluminum and other bright parts w/ Steel wool and then clear coated the pieces. Mike M 02 986S AS/GG/GG
  10. 3M makes a sprayon headliner adhesive that works in the heat. I don't have the Part #, but stop by your local Automotive Paint Supply jobber.
