Thanks again. Unfortunately Wurth's doesn't make that exact can anymore. I'm sure it's been superceded over the years. Both of the links I provided say they match all German cars. I might have to take a leap of faith. Excellent write up.
Loren- I found the paint- https://www.autopia-carcare.com/wus-892181.html#.XWs34ONKjIU Then I found this kit with everything I need for a good price. But the paint is different. Lacquer vs. enamel? https://www.autogeek.net/german-wheel-scuff-repair-kit.html Please advise. Thank you.
I'm going to be fixing some minor scratches on my wheels that were there when I bought my car a couple of months ago. Will WURTH SILVER METALLIC paint be an exact match for my wheels? Please see attached pic. Thanks.
I have the part in my hand, but if you have ever taken it out, you'll see that it doesn't give you the A02 or A05 designation on it.
I need to order this part, but I'm not sure if mine is matte or gloss. Pelican Parts lists both, but their website has no pics. The center of the switch looks glossy, but the dial looks matte. So, can someone help me out? Which is right for my '02 C2? I did check Sunset and they listed a different part no. (996-613-115-10-A05) for my car.It says it's a potentiometer. There's no pic. The A05 tells me it's matte. They do have 996-613-127-10-A05. Price is now $81.29. Just would like to be sure. Thanks.
DBJoe- it's good advice and I'll do that before I spend any money. It's the anal retentive engineer in me that wants things to work correctly and right now.
You can buy the sending unit for $250. Looks easy to install. Since I can do it myself, I might start there. Would the Durametric scan tool tell me if it's the sending unit? Might be worth buying one if it can. Good investment for the future too.
Thanks JFP. Any idea what Porsche will charge me for this? An hour labor?
I've had my '02 C2 for a week now and have been really enjoying it.This thing can really carve turns. It came with a full tank of gas and the gas gauge read correctly to nearly empty when I got the low fuel warning. I filled it up, but it only took 12 gallons. After filling, the gauge needle didn't move and the low fuel warning remained on. The next day, the gas gauge slowly crept to almost full(about 7/8). My initial reaction, for any car, is that it needs a new fuel gauge sending unit. But I did read on this forum about a recalibration process that has to be done at the dealer. Any help is always appreciated.
Agree and agree. Thanks again for your help.
It's done. Everything works and it sounds great. The only issue I'm having is that my phone won't stay paired. Pairs for about 5 seconds and then disconnects. I'll call Crutchfield tomorrow to see if they can help. Next up- see why my gas gauge is acting all goofy. The tank was full when In got it. Ran it down to almost empty so I filled it. Only took about 12 gallons. The gauge stayed near empty for a day. Then today, it slowly crept to near full. Should I replace the sending unit or is there some other issue that is inherent to these models? And... My airbag light is on.
The yellow one? Yes. Connected wire for wire from Metra to all speakers on new deck. That will connect to the cars brown plug. Wire for wire from Metra to the new deck. That will go to the cars black plug. From new deck to red harness: blue/white to blue/ white. That will go to the cars yellow plug (red/black). Connected up everything and I have sound. Haven't heat shrunk the connections yet. That's as far as I got before I had to leave. Back now. How'd I do?
