  1. Hi, I went to my dealer yesterday and asked about the paddle shift wheel. He says it is available in sea blue. I think this is the right colour as my sticker code is FE But... I have one of the 2009 sales brochures for the car and they only show ocean blue. My question is : are ocean blue and sea blue the same or did they just change the name? Thanks, Barry C2S PDK
  2. hI, I'm just about to get a 997.2 C2S PDK and I see they Porsche can do a paddleshift wheel for this. My question is what is the diameter of this wheel as legroom is a bit of an issue (6' 5")? Im ok on room with the existing multifunction wheel but that is slightly square at the bottom so I'm hoping the paddleshift wheel is a slighting smaller diameter. The item I'm looking at is 997 044 402 17. Also my car doesnt have sport plus so is the wheel still compatible? many thanks, BARRY
  3. I had it checked out and got a clean bill of health!! very happy and can now spend the money on 2 new rear tyres :D
  4. HI, I'm booked in here on Friday but they can send by post too. http://www.cayennepropshaft.co.uk/cayenne-propshaft-replacement-porsche-postalservice.html thanks, Barry
  5. it turn out to be a bulb just as you said. 12volt 1.5w. all working now and a pretty easy job if anyone is having any doubts about having a go. thanks, Barry
  6. Hi, I just went out for a short trip today and noticed that the speedo / trip computer screen is now blank. Could this be a fuse? The mileage display and oil display are ok so would they all be on the same circuit? thanks, Barry
  7. Hi, can anyone tell me what this wire is for. I removed the front pu for respray and the wire was taped right across the hood from one headlight to the other. thanks, Barry
  8. Does the steering wheel crest just glue on? I may replace mine as for some reason it only has one red stripe and the rest are gold and black.
  9. Hi, I'm 6.5 and I found that removing the lower centre console and replacing with the console delete kit ( as per gt3) helped a lot as it gives more room to splay your leg out. http://www.renntech.org/forums/index.php?a...f=2&t=11942
  10. Hi gang, I just had an annual service done and was advised of an oil leak. They said it could trigger a CEL. I gave them the go ahead to do it but can't find any labour charge relating to it. They have fitted 996.107.237.52 and 2 hose clamps. Where abouts on the car are they? The 996.107.237.52 has a brief description as BELLOWS FO. Thanks.
  11. Thanks Loren, so does the old unit just unbolt when the cables are released?
  12. Hi Guys, I've just ordered the complete short shift kit as pictured below. I doubt it will have any instructions with it and so would like to know if there are any on here. I have searched but only found the TSB for the b&m shift. Can anyone point me in the right direction please? Thanks
  13. I agree that it doesn't look great but it is a tidy solution and helps a great deal if you have long legs.
  14. I don't have any either, so I think this is common. I do have a GT3 kit but I'm not sure that it's specific to that. I think it's more to do with the fact that they might melt being near to the exhaust box's !!
  15. see here, something similar has been running a while - http://www.petrolheads.co.uk/gassing/topic...=0&t=400915
  16. The trim at the lower (both sides) of the center console are located with push in clips and can be prised off easily (no screws) To remove the gear shifter trim see here http://www.renntech.org/forums/index.php?s...mp;hl=gearstick
  17. I just did this on mine. pretty straightforward if you follow this: http://gallery.rennlist.com/gallery/albuq44?page=1

  20. Hi, I've got a thread relating to engine problems see http://www.renntech.org/forums/index.php?s...t=0&start=0 The thread shows a complete history of the situation. As a brief summary of my actions, I took a series of photos of my problem engine the main complaint about which is a defective crank cradle identified when the engine was disassembled by the independent I use. Because I use the car for business I had to buy an exchange engine as I had to limit the amount of time the car was off the road. It was still off the road from November 11th 2006 to the middle of February this year anyway. I have complained to Porsche GB Customer Assistance under the terms of the Sale of Goods Act 1979 within English Law and after a series of e-mails and letters they advised me to get an independent report done on the defects. This was done by The RAC (Royal Automobile Club) a motoring organisation in the UK. I subsequently got a specialist metallurgy company to report on the evidence as well as recommended by The RAC and submitted this to Porsche GB. Both reports said the component in question had manufacture-related defects, was sub-standard and should not have been fitted in the engine in the first place as it was not fit for purpose. The latest letter I received last Friday from Porsche GB still refused my claim so I have obtained the direct e-mail address of Dr. Wendelin Wiedeking, President and CEO of Porsche AG and have e-mailed him today with the details of the defects and have requested his assistance in resolving the situation. I'll keep my thread updated with the next events. Rgds John Any update on this yet?
