  1. Hi Richard, Thanks, I have sent you a pm with my email address, that would be really helpful. Mark
  2. I have a 1998 C2 which has just had the passenger door seal replaced as I complained about wind noise after purchasing the car. I saw the seal replaced so I know that has been done, however the mechanic informed me that he had adjusted the striker plate to pull in the door slightly. The door is more difficult to shut, so I tried to adjust the striker plate, but no improvement there. The noise seems to be coming from the back edge of window from the middle downwards. Any help please on :- 1) how to adjust the striker plate so it shuts better 2) can the angle of the window be adjusted to cure the wind noise ? Thanks Mark
  3. Hope you guys can help ? The handbook lists the follwing for 18" Wheels Front 7.5J x 18 H2 Offset 50 mm Rear 10J x 18 H2 Offset 65 mm Almost everywhere I have searched I can not find 18's with 7.5 , they are all 8.0 Is it ok to use 8J x 18 for the front, if so, what is the offset ? The car has 030 suspension if that makes any difference. Any help please ......... Thanks Mark
  4. Loren or anybody. On the TSB's are the time units stated minutes or some other multiple ? I was interested in the Spark Plug Tube O Ring replacement, which is 220 units for all 6. Thanks in advance. Mark
  5. 222 - Traction Control (TC) which was always sold with 224 - Automatic Limited Slip Differential (LSD) in MY99. No list I have shows a 234 - I'll bet your 234 is really 224 if you look closely. My list comes from the Porsche Worldwide Parts Listings. <{POST_SNAPBACK}> Option 014 is the Sports Pack for 996, but I am trying to find out what the Sports Pack means........ any extra bits ?
  6. Hi Picked up my 1998 C2 last week, and have looked through all of the options. So what does 014 exactly mean then, because 030, 375, 376 which are listed on the sticker detail suspension, and seats. Any ideas........ :help: Thanks Mark
  7. Well after a bad experience with the 996 C4 I owned, I did a deal to get a BOXSTER 'S', it is a great car but I missed the 911 too much. So picked up a 1998 Carrera yesterday, it has sports suspension, sports seats, OBC, full leather and drives superb. The Ocean Blue Metallic paintwork is really stunning. :) With 71K miles and a full OPC history the car has been well cared for. Didn't go for a much newer model as I don't want the hit financially I suffered on the C4, will wait and see how this one is for a year....... then maybe Have some option codes that I can not find even from Scousers list or Kindel, anybody help ? :help: 014 234 850 859 Thanks Mark
  8. Hi My Alarm Remote ceased to be at the weekend, the button felt soft and when I opened up the small switch inside had fallen apart !!! Anybody no where I could get a replacement as it looks a simple job to solder one on ? Thanks Mark
  9. Help please ? I do not know if the RMS has failed on my 1998 (99 model year) C4 Tip. Recently noticed a small amount of oil on the garage floor !!!!, however over 3 days this has amounted to barely covering the bottom of a small beaker which I placed underneath the car. Have attached a pic, and hope someone can advise ? As I am in UK, any idea of what the cost is likely to be ? Many thanks Mark
