    porsche 996 carrera 2, 1998 model
  1. Thanks for the input Richard. Just to check, though. I'd read the manual and believed what it said on p15 that the emergency locking procedure leaves the alarm switched on. Hence I hadn't tried it, but I will.
  2. 1998 Carrera C2, RHD. Pride and joy. Last sunday the alarm siren went off for no external reason. No flashing lights. Car had been standing for 10 days (to my shame). After this event the alarm beeps twice on locking car, then gives a single beep. At the same time the interior central locking button red light also flashes. Since then alarm has gone off three times, once when car was unlocked. I have found that the alarm stays quiet if the key is in the ignition. Keeps peace with neighbours, but doesn't make for easy sleeping. Certainly not to be recommended in car parks. For several reasons I'd can't get to a dealer for a week or so, so could anyone please tell me if I can temporarily deactivate the alarm, and if so how, in a way that would leave the car lockable? Thanks Chris
  3. Thanks for this. It is just the one side that's got the problem will get the interior manual out again probably stick to black - matches the upholstery
  4. Had to get a new windscreen (another story) and that seems to have solved the problem
  5. Happens to my 2000 C4 as well, but I'm not too bothered... Thanks Claudiu, nice to know I'm not alone It rains a lot in Wales where I live, so I'd like to get it sorted
  6. 1998 silver 996 carrera 2, RHD, The driver's side seat belt is not pulling back into the pillar very quickly when I release the catch. It's a problem if I'm in a hurry getting out of the car and forget to stow the belt and catch inside - belt and catch get caught in door when it closes. I'm assuming it's common with ageing seat belts Anyone please tell me if it's easy to fix, and how? Thanks

  8. 1998 996 carrera 2. Standard Sony Radio with autochanger Wondered if anyone can please help identify the cause of this problem and possible solutions. Couldn't find an earlier post. My car is experiencing radio intermittent interference from the windscreen wiper (?motor). Noise coincides with period when blades are moving. It only happens when it's raining, and pretty heavily. Thanks Chris
