  1. Disregard question. Found the answer.
  2. Would floormats for a 2002-2005 Porsche 911 fit on n a 1999 996?
  3. Thanks for the info but is too much for my computing abilities however, your info tells me it can be done. Rather use a professional service.
  4. I replaced the instrument cluster (996, 1999, C2 6speeds),. Was able to adjust the millage to the old cluster millage, through a company in California, don't remember the name. It is my understanding that the VIN number is stored in the cluster. Since the "new" cluster is from a different vehicle, I'm asuming, the cluster, has the doner's VIN number. Is there a way to change the VIN number from the "NEW" cluster to the car's original VIN mumber? There is a seller on eBay that claims it can do it but I'm a bit hesitant. I do have a clone PST2 and it is my understanding that for some programing, key fob for instance, IPAS, is needed. Think IPAS is related to tha VIN number.
  5. Sorry to be a pain but where can I find Front trunk, rear engine cover, doors, center console, sensors?
  6. Hi all. Long time no post. As the title of the post sates "One beep means you have one or more alarm zones open". Where are the alarm zones located? Thnaks
  7. This is just a test. the 996 forum does not shows on the forum list.
  8. Was having problems with the tachometer and adjusting the clock on my 996 MY99 6 speed. Got a cluster on eBay, send it to Palo Alto Speedometer to adjust the millage to the actual millage. However, Palo Alto was not able to correct/adjust the vin number in the cluster. In the case I need the ipas password, should I get the password for the vin number in the "new" cluster or the one of the car's original vin number? Thanks
  9. Had a similar problem and purchased the seal/s from a Porsche specialized junk yard. To the best of my knowledge those seals are not sold separately. They come with the headlights.
  10. Hi everybody: Searching the forums in regards to the instrument cluster found this info in an old post: "The second one (996.641.103.01.70c) was replaced by 996.641.103.02.70c and then 996.641.103.03.70c -- so it will work but it is likely from 1998." Having problems with the tachometer, the needle dropped and although it tries to move is always pointing to the #6 position on a clock dial. The other problem is the the cluster clock can not be adjusted. None of the functions of the knob to set the time on the cluster clock work (setting time and changing from MPH to KPH). Thinking of getting a cluster, my car is a MY99, C2, manual, and activated OBC so, would any of the clusters above mentioned would work, what reprogramming would be needed for the "new" cluster? I know the millage would need to be adjusted and either VDO Repair or Palo Alto Speedometer could.
  11. Got it. No option but to take the thing apart polish it and re-paint as I once did. Thanks
  12. My 996 1999 6 speeds has manual (via cable) trunk and engine compartment release levers. Can it be possible to convert it to electric? Hate those scratched levers.
