Thank you Joe. I appreciate your information and the link. 🙂
Thank you very much JFP, that leads me in a good direction.
Well sir, I already did as you suggested as I wouldn't be able to drive the car. I came here for help & information not judgment or ridicule. I would really like to keep the car as original Porsche as possible is why I asked if anyone knew where to get this bolt.
Ed T posted a topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Hi all, anyone have a website listing the OEM battery post bolt? Turns out I was having some electrical issues, while troubleshooting, I discovered the bolt was stripped. While I was trying to remove it, the bolt snapped. Worst part? It was like this when I bought the car from a Porsche Dealership in CT.
Ed T posted a topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)I'll be looking for winter rims and tires soon. I have 18 inch rims. Should I stick with 18's or is it ok to use 17 or 19's? Other than speedometer issues are there any other disadvantages to a different size? Thanks, Ed

Ed T posted a topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Good morning, a few weeks ago, my dashboard limits switch came on related to oil pressure. The gauge was pegged at a 5 and didn't move. I shut off the engine, then restarted it. The pressure gauge reset itself and worked well again. This has been an intermittent issue. I bought a new pressure sensor but haven't installed it yet. Yesterday, I started the engine and got an oil pressure message and the gauge showed zero. I turned off the engine, then restarted it and everything went back to normal. Sorry for the lengthy post, but my question is... Is this the pressure sensor causing this or could this be leading to something more serious? Oil pump? I'm leaning towards a bad sensor getting worse. Thank you.
