  1. Tips hat to Loren: Running 245/35/19's in the front, slight rub on outside edge both front and rear: Swapping for 235/35/19's tomorrow. I also noticed over a really large whoop going too fast in a parking lot that the rear 305's rub too (can't see any rub marks tho, it was real minor). Based on my experience I would say the maximum size for 19's on a 996 Narrow Body is 235/35/19 and 295/30/19 on 8.5's front 11's rear.
  2. Where would it be rubbing? Inner Fender Wall to the rear edge of the tire or outer fender on the front edge?
  3. What Do you feel is the biggest tire I can wedge in the front of an otherwise stock C2? I don't rub at all with 225/35/19's. I think they are 8.5's.
  4. I run 19's. Just went to 305/30/19's RE11's in the Rear and it understeers like mad with 225's in the front. Switching To 245/35/19 in the front this weekend! Here's my old setup with 225/35/19 & 285/35/19
  5. Good News! I was able to buy a cigarette lighter jump pack and it barely provided enough juice to light up the dash and let me open the hood without any dis-assembly
  6. I left a trickle charger on it for 2 days. After the alarm runs for 2 cycles of 3 minutes the alarm stops. It still doesn't have enough juice to let me open the hood. Can you get to the hood manual release without destroying anything?
  7. problem is my batterymindr won't charge as it doesn't detect any voltage (it actually says polarity reversal) and when I hook up a battery to jump it the alarm just goes off never ending.
  8. Hey, I'm back! My gremlin went away for awhile, but now it's back with a vengeance. The car has been parked since the new year, so I decided to fire it up and stir the oil, etc. The car was completely dead. Completely. So I took and hooked a battery up to the fuse panel jumper and door post and the alarm goes off. Problem is that neither key in the door or ignition will stop the alarm. The hood openers don't pop and I get nothing on the dash, just an alarm! Suggestions?
  9. I've got a 2002 996 cab that has been pretty low maintenance. I'm 2nd owner and it has about 75K miles, about half of which were logged by me. With only about 6K miles per year average, It didn't suprise me 2 weeks ago when I had a weak battery (too weak to start). I swapped it out for a new one from AutoZone, drove it twice, and now 2 weeks later the car is DOA, no power whatsoever. The only problem I'm aware of is about 10K miles ago the keyless entry quit working, so i've had to lock/unlock manually. The power locks work from inside, just not from the remote. It was
  10. <SHAME> I have a 2002 Carrera 2 Cab that I don't drive nearly as much as I should </SHAME> When taking it out for a spin (first time out of the garage all year), I noticed that the oil pressure seemed quite high. It normally starts off high and comes down into the 2-3 range, but I found that unless I was coasting it was pegging the needle at 5. After turning off the engine and poking around, I notice the gauge will register just over 1 with the key on but without the motor running, that makes me feel a bit better, as i'm guessing it's the gauge, wiring, or sender and no
  11. Yes, Niello. They referenced verbally that it was a dual-mass flywheel as part of the logic for being replaced. The write up says "Note: found the clutch worn (Recommend replacing $3125.08). They also said I needed to replace the rotors because my front brakes were at 2MM and quoted just shy of $800 for a front-end brakejob. I'm not a big fan of trying to "fix" things (like turning rotors if/when they are noticably warped) as i've been more satisfied swapping instead; however, I also don't see a reason to change pricey parts "just because". Sounds like they are being a bit li
  12. I just did this today for $1150 at the Sacramento Dealer. This was the 60K service, Plus Brake Fluid change. It included stuff like Plugs, Filters, and Belt along with a thorough inspection. Altho their service was excellent, I don't plan on doing this again at a dealer. I had 3 more days on a 3rd party warranty and figured they'd give my new baby the best once-over.
  13. Comments on this anyone? I didn't have my car PPI'd when I bought it used; However I was given a 3 month drivetrain warranty (which expires at the end of this week). I decided to have my 60K service done at the local dealer (Sacramento, CA.... not where I bought the car). The good news is that they didn't find anything but wear items....... the bad is that my clutch near the end of it's life. I was quoted ~$3200 for the clutch replacement. I was told it was pricey because they swap the clutch & flywheel each time. Is this typical? If so, is this price reasonable? As a referen
  14. Halfway on my commute home it came off wait to code and 4374 worked! Thank You, Thank You, Thank You!
  15. Any idea how long it locks things out for after the second set of bad attempts? When the first code didnt' work this morning, I tried just puntching buttons. It locked for about a minute at WAIT and then came back. I kept pressing and got into a WAIT which its been on now for about 14 hours. I go back outside and check it every couple of hours but still WAIT... I tried disconnecting the battery for a bit, no change. I'm getting impatient as I want to try the suggestions above. :)
