I don't have the jack going to the 18 pin socket so I don't know what color wire is to each pin. I am talking about the black socket on the right side of speaker/power socket. As I remember, that takes a pigtail jack which I don't have any more.
Loren, I was able to get this diagram online but unfortunately I don't have the jack for this terminal with the wires to identify the pins according to the colors of wires. The input jack has two rows of pins, 9 in each row(total of 18 pins). I was hopping some one could tell me what color wire is to each pin. I was able to buy the speaker side jack and not the input side jack with the wires.
Can anyone tell me the M490 amplifier's input pin assignment on the 18 pin input jack? I like to use this amp on another audio source and it is not going in a Porsche. I need to identify each pin at the input jack of the amplifier.
These boots are univesal and are made for any car as long as they fit.
I inspected the ball joints. They wear tight and snug with no sign of wear after 120,000 miles. I removed the torne ball joint boots and carefully cleand them. I also cut and removed the clip that holds the lower end of the boot. I was able to find some boots from a company called Energy Suspension in San Clemente, California. The Rack and Pinion outer ends took their Part# 9.13103G and the control arm's main took part # 9.13105G. They cost about $5.00 dollars for each pair and they are made of Polyruethane. I repacked the joints with lots of new grease and mounted the new boots. I have to change the sway bar linkage boots too but, I have not found any that small. By the way, changing the shocks was a peice of cake and I am going to do the rear ones next weekend. Max
Last weekend I got ready to change the front shocks on my 1999 C2, then I noticed that all the ball joint boots are cracked or damaged. I found out that you can not just replace the ball joints and it comes with the unit that it is attached to, like 928 Porsches. There is a kit for 928s that rebuilds and replaces the inside and the outside of the ball joint, but I could not find any kit for 996 porsches. Does any body have any sugestions besides changing those expensive parts ? I like to just clean and repack the ball joints but I need a set of new ball joint boots. Deos any body know where I can find different size boots ? Max
mansourzianour replied to c928jon's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)I seem to have the same problem. Can you explaine a little bit more about what camber adjustment bolt you are refering to(with more details)? And, why was the bolt loose ? Was it loose due to any previous repair job ? Thanks for your help.
