Hi Guys, apologies for resurrecting this tread. My 2000, C4, Cab roof has lost the run of its self over since last year! I took my hard top off over the weekend and tried to use the soft top, but just as it closes, and the latch engages the latch opens and repeats the cycle. I can stop it by pressing the micro switch inside the receiver with a pen. So it seams many have had this problem so I purchased the latch cover part 996 561 787 0101C and using the TSB attempted it put it on the latch, it wouldn't fit? the replacement cover is the exact size as my latch, so the cover split putting it on! I notice here http://www.design911.co.uk/fu/prod21302/Cabrio-Roof-Catch-Hook-Cap-Porsche-996/ there is reference to superseding part numbers, would you guys know if there are 2 parts available. I cant see how the part I got could have fit over the steel hook???
Hi I havent read much on this before so excuse me if I appear dumb! My 2000 996 has the Becker CDR22 Head unit and multi disk player in the boot. I have an iPhone too, can you when time permits detail or explian what I need to get the iphone working in the car and charging.....I was about to order a Nokia blue tooth kit for the phone and assume I will still need it, but your post sounds interesting, if I read it right. Denis
Anyone any ideas?
denisoreilly replied to wcb's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Such confusion, shouldn't this be on the 996 board! However in responce to the original question, most important issue to be looking into is to see if the car has its mileage clocked....., whats with the broker?, can you talk to the previous owner and or vendor direct, without the broker being the translator? I'm sure it goes without saying but the mileage is easy to change on all digital odometers in all cars, however you can get a read out from the on board computer of the running hours, this is discussed on the 996 board, and most owners find an average figure of 33 miles for each hour give or take, so if the computer says the engine ran for 1000 hours (as is the case on my car) the mileage should be 33 thousand - ish, (mine is 31K), but this is only an average, its NOT gospel! A main dealer will need to acces this information, but if its been sold from a main dealer then I'm sure your safe. Why not buy from a main dealer in Canada you if your so concerned?
Hi guys I had these pics on file fof an early 997 Cab spotted before the original release. Anyone know anything about the wheels? ie who or where they are available from? Looks like modern cup alloys?
Anyone know how to remove to trim on the cabriolet?
denisoreilly replied to Cesarfl's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Mind me asking do you have an alarm? did it not activate?
I'd appreciate any info too, thanks guys.
Orient, your a star...I'll hand your comments over to my OPC
Ok thanks, anyone any infor on the install question above?
Hi guys I am getting the PSE installed Wednesday with the switch by my OPC. They will amend the installation so it won't cut out between 30 and 40mph but advised on some models it not always works, they suggested by not connecting a cable to the speedo that it should be either on all the time or off all the time depending on the switch position. Has anyone any advise or experience on this, I am aware the diode cut modification "might" have implications with the cabriolet roof speed sensor, I have a smart top and don't want to lose its features so would like to avoid the diode cut in case I lose functionality. Anyone any knowledge on any of these issues? Appreciate the help Its going on a 2000 C4 3.4 Cabriolet with Smart Top.
denisoreilly replied to victor's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)sorry if this is off topic but can you post pics of the completed install? Hope you find your answer,
For the record the colour is Space Grey, discontinued after 2000, .
are they genuine Paul , if replicas any issues worth considering?
denisoreilly replied to nylewis's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)I'm sorry to hear your troubles, mind me asking have you had coolant replaced previously, and if so was it indy or opc? Did you buy any from Porsche? Jesus man 3 blown porsches? who can blame you for being pi**ed....
