  1. Hi all. I just did my first full oil/filter change on my '95 993. I used the method that has you disconnect the oil return line and I dutifully purchased the three O-rings recommended to be replaced. Two of them have a good thickness and one is just a thread of a thing. The oil return tube has but one channel on it. Can someone advise where these three O-rings get positioned when replacing the oil return tube? Thank you, Keith
  2. I don't own one but I believe this is the source http://www.carnewal.com/ They call it a front protection bar.
  3. This web site has a series of DIY articles. The one on Brake Pad and Rotor Service covers removing the calipers. Hopefully this helps. pcar workshop
  4. I resolved this myself. Where the seat was jammed made it impossible to remove the seat. In further searching I found a reference to this problem (another Porsche or just another 993 forum, can't recall) that suggested manually driving the rod that is hung up directly. The trick was finding the right tool since the fitting is square. Essentially you need to remove the flexible drive on the side that is frozen. The drive bit needed turns out to be (by design or coincidence?) an S3 tamper proof bit (they size S0, S1, etc.) This is a carpentry tool so don't look at the automotive parts store. I found a 4" S3 bit that I rigged with a socket and extension. I was able to free up the stuck side easily with this. Couple of things that could be tricky: I'm pretty sure shafts on either side are threaded differently. If you sense a lot of resistance you're turning the wrong way. It took relatively little effort to turn once I had the right direction. I suppose the actual alignment of the two sides is important. My seat was jammed all the way back so I made sure the free side was all the way back before breaking the jammed side free. Replaced the flexible drive shat, life was good.
  5. Hi all. The fore/aft motion in my driver's side power seat is jammed. It appears to be the point where it engages the right seat rail. That is to say if I remove the fore/aft flexible drive from the motor to the right rail gizzmo, the motor spins happily and I can get motion along the left seat rail. With the flexible drive in place I get a thunk. I'm trying to find an easy way out (I know, I know!) rather than having to remove the seat. Anyone have a trick that would get the mechanism broken free with the set in place? Thank you.
