cajun replied to WARDHOG's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Those sound like the same symptoms I had when my transmission conked out. I have a 1999 996 Cab. The transmission went south at 36,000 miles. I'm the second owner of the car (I bought it with 29K on it), and I don't know how it was maintained or driven before I got it. I recommend taking it to the dealer. They can tell immediately if it is the transmission. If so, the only remedy is to replace the whole thing. I paid about $6000 for a Porsche rebuilt transmission and the labor. Good luck, maybe it is something else.
I have a '99 996 Cab. I'd like to remove the rear seats. Are there any posts on how to do this? If not, can anyone give me some help? Thanks.
cajun replied to ultramens's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Your wheels look great. I'd like to do that for mine too. Can you point me to the instructions you followed? Thanks!
I wish I had gotten an extended warranty. I had to pay to have my transmission replaced right after the warranty expired. I would have it checked by an independent shop - ask around for recommendations. Then if they find anything, you can take it in to the dealer for repair. Good Luck!
