  1. It's at the dealer today, bad O2 sensor, covered by the standard 4yr/50k mile warranty. Will be replaced at no charge!
  2. Checked the warranty book and am very confused. The main 4yr/50k mile warranty specifically excludeds anything covered by the emission control warranty, of which there are many. The only place where O2 sensors are mentioned is in the federal 2yr/24k mile emission warranty. The California 3yr/50k and 7yr/70k emission warranties do not mention O2 sensors, so are the O2 sensors included or not?. As I said, very confusing. Will talk to the dealer and find out.
  3. Got it, thanks. Just realized that the car is still under warranty. Not sure if O2 sensors are included, but I'll probably start there.
  4. Car is an '09 Carrera 2S with PDK. I have a recurring CEL that comes up with code P2414, which means a bad O2 sensor 1 on bank 1. How difficult is it to replace this sensor? I'm not even sure exactly where it is. Any idea what a dealer would charge to do the work?
  5. You will need the Durametric software, or a Porsche PIWIS to reset the airbag. Stopped by Stead Porsche in Walnut Creek this morning and they reset the light. Stead is great, I had no appointment, just showed up. Service Manager Melissa offered me a cup of coffee and they reset the light while I waited - no charge!
  6. Just completed this install and it went well, but I now have an airbag light on the dash - any suggestions as to the cause and remedy? All other warning lights like PSM, etc went off after a short drive.
  7. I've got Porsche's 980-611-981-00 battery maintainer that I use to keep my '09 C2S charged and ready to go. However - I've got an off the wall question: can I use this unit to maintain the codes in the car's brain when I disconnect the battery to replace it? I know there are some inexpensive thingies that connect to a 9v battery to maintain the memory. Will this unit do the same, or fry the electronics?
  8. IIRC there are a number of bulbs in there, not really designed for individual replacement. I ended up replacing the whole unit, ordered from Sunset. It's plastic and mine had gotten very brittle, from exposure to heat from the engine I assume.
  9. For a 2002 C4S, I'm installing a DAS-Sport roll bar, which bolts to the top of the rear shock towers and the lower front seat belt mounting points. Would like to have the factory torque specs for both of these. Happy Easter and thanks in advance! -PJ
  10. Seems like removing the mufflers makes sense, but are there any issues with reinstalling them? Do they require new gaskets, any problems with leaks? Also - what is the torque spec for the muffler bolts?
  11. Finally got around to replacing the part - pretty simple. Needed to remove the coat hook (#20 in diagram above) and the B-pillar (13) which required removing the seat belt attachment. All pretty straightforward. Popped the old one out, new one in and reassembled in reverse order. About 15 minute job. Thanks again Loren.
  12. Dang, you are right on target, 16 is the part. A few more questions; How do I describe this part to the guys at Sunset Imports? Is there a specific P/N? I need the left side, this diagram shows the right side - do I just indicate left? I understand that I need to specify leather color, how do I do that? Is it linked to VIN? Thanks again Loren.
