  1. Any ideas on how to remove the crankshaft pulley bolt with engine in car? I understand that there is a pulley holder (Porsche special tool 9290) but I cannot find one anywhere. I also understand that locking the crank to remove the highly torqued bolt is a bad idea. I need a way to secure the pulley while I use a very large breaker bar to crack the bolt.
  2. I removing my front bumper to clean the radiators. The 4 plastic riviets is the problem. How are they removed without ruining them? Or, are they to be replaced during reassembly? It looks like the whole rivet assembly needs to come out. Thanks
  3. Can someone ID these components? What would have been in the empty spots? How often would the #6 socket be used and would covering it with the MSD CDI unit be a big problem? My '86 911 turbo
  4. I have a '86 911 Turbo with the cat removed from the stock exhaust. I am installing B&B headers. The spacer in the picture was between the wastegate and the header pipe but it does not show on the Porsche PET and I think it was added when the cat was removed (to solve some fit issue). It appears that the wastegate does not require the spacer. Can anyone confirm? Thanks
  5. Oh yea; my other question: Has anyone ever has the stock seat modified by a upolstery shop to remove seat foam to make the seat deeper?
  6. Sorry, let me be moe specific. I have a REcaro Pole Position seat (which I believe comes in the GT2) fixed mount (no slider) fixed back (no recline). I want to mount in in my 996TT to get more leg and head room. I see all the electronics under my seat and wonder how I can retain the airbag use with this seat. My other option might be to have an upolstrey shop remove some foam from my seat??? Wondering if anyone has ever tried that? Thanks
  7. I'm installing at GT2 seat in my '03 996TT to get more leg and head room. I suspect that the air bag will not work once I'm done. Anyway to have the GT2 seat and airbag function? Why is the seat wired into the airbag anyway? Can I transfer the airbag seat gadgetry over to the GT2 seat? Thanks
  8. I purchased a '05 and had to upgrade the DVD because my street and surrounding streets were not on the map even though I moved into my house in 1999. The upgrade came with a CD (not DVD) that I put in the CD player and it was a set-up program for the new DVD. A menu driven easy to use set-up that I did myself. I wonder if my set-up CD is compatible with your DVD? By the way, these cars have the lamest nav system I've ever seen. My little 4" Garmin is more useful and easier to use that the Porsche - but, oh well, it came with the car and I'll make the most of it. feel free to email me if you want me to check on that CD disk. rick7211@alltel.net
  9. Does anyone have a seat suggestion that would get me more leg and head room? I need a seat that goes back further and possibly sits lower. My 6' 4" frame is cramped. Thanks 2003 996TT 1986 930 (with Kirkey race seats)
  10. I had this problem too. Mine was a mouse that nested on top of my engine and ate through the knock sensor wire. The motor puts itself into a "protect" mode and would not go over .4 bar. Sure there are no codes? Good luck
  11. I've read posts on shifters that need adjustments. My '03 996TT recently had the motor pulled. Prior to the work it shifted like butter (in/out with no problem). Since getting it back I notice a rougher shift and sometimes having to pull it out of some gears with resistence. I asked the dealer to check it and consider adjustments. Of course, they say it is fine as is. However, I know it is not like it was. How are these adjusted for smoother shifting and can a novice do that kind of work???? Thanks Rick
  12. I'll be moving to Phoenix soon and taking my non-CAT 911 with me. What options do I have to get a registration? thanks
  13. What is the best way to clean the radiators and housings on my '03 996TT?
