    2003 911/996 C2
  1. Hey Guys, Lets take the Mystery out the SVA test once and for all! I have 2003 996 Cab USA versiion in the UK converted with SVA pass! My total cost to get the work done professionally by Zentrum (Nottinghan) was ( ...get ready) £145. I dropped th car off went out for coffee came back just over later and it was done. The mechanics are ex-Porsche Nottingham and factory trained, without dealer pricing! But before I bought and brought my USA car over to the UK. I looked into the costs. To start with RHD Porsche of Nottinghim told me it would cost £7000+ to prepare a USA car to pass
  2. Nice work and very thorough- thanks bwillis! :notworthy: I have received Custom's approval now for permanent UK import of my USA MY03 996 C2 HMRC just provided me with a CE388. So next is SVA testing! :help: I have a couple issues with questions I hope you can maybe help with. Questions: 1) Do headlights really have to replaced? I have OEM Bi-Xenon Lithronic Headlights on the facelift 996. These do have headlight washers and self-leveling. On 966 at least there is a touring option adjustment switch inside to flatten the beam so the rise of the low beam does not lift o
  3. Hi.... Yes I did and still hear a "click" "click" more on right turn, then left. Click is still there!: :huh: I also found a small piece of black plastic that appears to have come off the top of the housing assembly where the turn stalk enters the steering column. :wrench: I bought a new stalk from Sunset but have not installed it. Not sure I'm ready to attempt to pull the steering wheel/airbag to bits without some good instruction. Dealers here charge £120/ hr! That's USD$250!! and quoted at a 1.2 to 2 hr job! <_< Errrg ...yeh right...for now I self-cancel the t
  4. Hello Stefan Thanks very much for your prompt and thorough reply, and $ly but helpful information. Your product is well known ,and I do not doubt that development took a lot of research and time, that justifies the cost. So ... do you still offer a discount for contributing Renntech members? Also do you know if the three button key can be programed to operate the top of a USA car as it does on the RoW 996 models? Or ... need I say is the REMOTETOP 996 the only option? Cheers :wrench: Jas
  5. Hi Guys, I'm enjoying the threads with red eyes now searching for answers, seems I'm getting closer ...but not there yet. I'm driving a US MY03 996 C2 Cab. 1) I can confirm TOP works up and down while moving up to 25mph without handbrake. No modifications made or costly relays, that I am aware of. 2) The issue I need some advice with however is the 'disabled comfort window up ' function. Door key can open window but will not close them. Question is can this be changed or is there a work around. 3) Same goes for raising or lowering the top with the door key switch. Windows go dow
  6. Hello Mr Pants Perfect in my case. Yes the switch is not returning to center. 1)There is clicking noise on left turn where I hear something catching and trying to reset trigger the release but misssed. 2) Occasionally on trying to indicate a right turn I cannot get the switch arm to lock and hold into position. I removed the rubber cover over the switch at the steering column from the signal and computer arms to try to see if someithing might be stopping it from moving into position. 3) Yep .... I notched something that would raise when arm was lifted to sometimes stop it from
  7. Hi, youre not alone! I'm looking too. My turn signal indicator switch just stopped self cancelling after turn too. MY03 996 (LHD). I'm surprised there is nothing here. Its a mechical failure in the switch which normally means an expensive new switch. This happened (years ago) on both my '74, and '84 911. It seems a design fault. We able to pull the wheel remove the switch from the column and fix the contacts. I have no idea about the 996 yet, and hopefully someone can reply to us. I'm not to keen yet to pull the wheel off and start messing without some good encouragment to do so. C
  8. Well no answers or replies............ Here is what the dealer said, "PCM2.1 DVD system from 997 MY05+ will not fit 996!"
  9. Does anyone know if the newer MY05+ PCM 2.1 DVD verson 3.0 will fit or retrofit to a MY03 w/ PCM2.1 CD Version 3.0. There do not seem to map updates in Europe for CD PCM2 since 2004. Just wondering if I can swap to the newer PCM DVD. There are a couple availible. 997.642.103.05 and 997.642.103.06. I need to move quickly to get them, so if anyone can reply PDQ, (Loren?) it sure would be appreciated. - Thanks
  10. Hi Nick, Thanks for the quick reply. My system is version 3.0. I do have the Bose system. Quite a price difference. I am now a contributing member too. How could I argue its not justified with help and resources like this? :notworthy: Now I just need to find my way into the TSBs??? The part number for the PCM2.1 Europe update the dealer offere is 000044???????? (somewhere on my desk). I'll try to dig it up. I hguess when heard the price it was quickly neglected.Seems the best dated maps still though are 2004 at best. Funny PCM 1 16 bit updates are availble up to current. So the PCM2 I M
  11. Thanks Nick, I found that and bought both disc 2 & 3, just waiting for it to arrive. The Knottingham Porsche called me to say Porsche Germany replied to them, there is CD Update kit for 2003 which he said updates the firmware to 2.1 He could ot say what the year map up date is, nor is if will work on CD Based PCM 2.0 software version 3.0. The set is £415 with VAT. Does anyone else out there know anyting more a about a CD firmaware 2.1 PCM update?
  12. Nice impressive work and thorough instructions fitting your PCM2! :cheers: I just brought a 2003 996 USA with PCM2 (software ver. 3.0) to the UK. (same unit you installed no-GSM SIM module ) Dealer cannot tell me if there are CD maps for it for Europe or UK. Navtech tells me the map software is not compatible formats. Hard to believe that! Do you know if these CDs are availible? Been seaching everywhere. I can find PCM 2 for USA /CA Only and PCM1CD and PCM 2.1 DVDs for Europe. Even wondered if maps could ripped from a DVD, since says both use ver 3.0 Sure could use some helpful adv
