JFP in PA replied to Citgot's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Most quality shops did, just as the followed their “preinstallation inspection “ directives, both of which benighted the car’s owner at no cost to the shops. We regularly had customers ask us about both when shopping for someone to do the retrofit, signs of an informed consumer. DIY’s on the other hand were another story.......
Older AOS units had a single o-ring seal, later units have multiple seals.
Good night. Leave you with a thought: Try a lighted mechanics mirror before jumping for a borescope: It has two LED's to illuminate and is a great time saver. I have both this and a borescope in the shop and reach for this way more than the borescope.
While you have the AOS out, physically compare it to the unit you removed to see if there are any obvious differences.
Something is not right here. I would pull the unit and either use a borescope of a small mirror to see if something is still in the block. Did you say that you had the bolt in and the unit was flush with the engine case when the tube was not all the way in? If that is correct, there is something wrong with that AOS unit. Did you compare it to the unit you pulled out?
OK, something interesting: Here is the part ending in 54: And here is the one ending 55: Notice the difference in the length of the tube that inserts into the block?
That was what I was just looking at.
OK, let's start with the basics: What year and model is your car? What is the part number of the AOS you are trying to install?
Was this photo taken from under the car? The AOS looks' like it is hitting the case to the left of the tube....
Something is seriously wrong here. We have never had to "hammer" an AOS into position, the normally just pop in with minor pressure. Are you sure you have the correct AOS? Are you sure it isn't hitting something that is preventing it from seating?
That is the neutral safety switch; the reverse light switch is under the console as pictured above.
While someone has obviously butchered the car for some reason, you should be able to either recreate the harness, or get one from a breakers yard to put the car back together correctly.
Opps That is for the manual, yours is a Tip, so it is under the center console:
