  1. This is just a test. the 996 forum does not shows on the forum list.
  2. 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
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. Got it. No option but to take the thing apart polish it and re-paint as I once did. Thanks
  6. 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.
  7. Hi All: Long time no post. Question, does a three spoke airbag for a tiptronic fit the Three Spoke steering wheel of a 6 speed? Thanks
  8. The same thing happened to me and replaced all wires. Daunting task due to the difficulty of reaching all wires in such a tight place but doable.
  9. Tried it but no cigar. Thanks for the suggestion though.
  10. Battery went completely dead. Charged and car cranking/starting fine. However, noticed not being able to set the clock time and change from MPH to KPH (stuck on MPH, not concern since I'm in the US) .Followed manual's steps to change the time but not working. Any ideas? MY99 6 speed no sat navigation.
  11. Thanks Ahsai. Will take that in consideration.
  12. Update: Fuses OK. By-passed clutch switch..... Running. Thinking of by-passing the clutch switch for good. Volts reaching battery 14+, volts at jump points (engine trunk) 14+. Will drive the car and see if battery (Optima) will hold charge. THANKS FOR YOUR ASSISTANCE EVERYBODY.
