stan replied to SPR's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)I had the same problem with my 01 C2. It turn out that it was missing a grommit. The grommit is a plastic bushing that is press fit into the steel body. It lines up the plunger to meet with the hole in the plastic door. Without the grommit, the plunger misses the hole. I bought the part at the dealer , I don't remember the cost but it was under $10.00. Open the gas door, look at the plunger and there should be plastic bushing (grommit)that the plunger slides thru.

stan posted a topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Is it possible to change the express windows to normal finger on switch movement? They drive me nuts. I noticed that after you turn off the car, the windows are in the manual mode. I have a 04 C2. Thanks,
stan replied to stsanford's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Also, Porsche states that after 4 years you need to change the spark plugs, so that might have been included in the $1600 price.
stan replied to bavarian's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)I also have this problem on my 04 c2. I found that when this happens, I turn off the car, remove the key and hit the key fob lock on and then off, and this always resets and starts the radio up again!! Could be a problem with the security system interface with the bose system or the time delay with the radio. stan
stan replied to PeterC4's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)You must have the igntion on or the car running and in reverse when you set the seat and mirror memory! Stan
stan replied to mduff's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Don't forget you need to have the car running, or have the key turn to the on position to have the memory work. You must also hold the Memory button as you press #1 or # 2 to set position. Stan
I did the same thing on my car. It took me a while to figure why the console was rubbing the brake handle. At the front mounting point of the console there is a steel bracket attached to the hump of the car. The console can be mounted wrong on this bracket and yet all the screws will go in, but the console will be shifted back out of position. I can't exactly remember how it fits, but you will see if you look at the area. Stan
stan replied to stan's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)HORNS FIXED!!!!!! I check voltage at the relay feed contact=Good! I pulled the bumper cover and checked the voltage at both connecters=Good! I could not beleive that both high and low horns on a new car could be bad all at once, but they where. Called my dealer and he gave me 2 new horns and said not a uncommon problem. Hooked them up and Bingo, both horns work. Used the 3rd radiator instructions to pull the bumper cover and all went well. Half the fun of owning the 911 is working on it. Thanks, stan
stan posted a topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)I did a search on horns and came up with alot of helpful stuff, but could not find anything on toubleshooting the wiring. Here is the story. I bought the 04 911 c2 6spd about a month ago. Car was new with 60 miles on it. It was in the showroom for awhile and had the trunk and engine hood lights disconnected. I wonder if they disconnected the horns to prevent people from hitting the horn in the showroom? Now Here is what I did. 1) When you press the horn pad on the wheel, the relay clicks so that circuit should be fine. 2) Checked fuse and replaced with backup fuse,no change. 3) Replaced relay with same p/n and no change. 4) Checked connections at the horns and they are there. I know the next step is to probe the connections and need a wire diagraham for the circuit to show me terminal location and connector locations. I find it odd that both horns on a new car would be bad, so before I pull the bumper cover I would like to pin point the problem. Thanks, stan
I have a 996 2004 c2 6sp and found that the plastic cover on the wiper stalk is scratched. The part I would like to replace has the white imprint of the wiper functions on it. The part snaps of the stalk, but not sure if its sold seperate. If so what would the part number be. Also all the other stalks have a matte fininsh on them and the scratched part on the wiper stalk is high gloss like my 2001 had.Weird? Thanks stan
Thanks guyes, I'll give it a try tonight. Stan
I removed the 3 screws, but the pod still would not come out. Are there clips that also hold it in place and if so what direction do you pull to get it out? Stan
stan posted a topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)I have a rattle in the dash of my 04 996 that comes from the side a/c vents. I tried to remove the air vent pod but could not remove it. Does anyone know how to remove the air vent pod? Thanks
