9nine6 replied to lancelot092466's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)You don't need a RMS tool. ;if you're careful. just tap around the edges of the seal with a small rubber tipped hammer.....and make sure you don't push the seal too far in, another way is to get a PVC pipe the same size as the outer diameter of the seal and tap equally around the pipe with a small rubber tipped hammer while holding against the seal......again don't push the seal too far in.. replace the intermediate shaft bolts one at a time and epoxy the heads ;)
9nine6 replied to waterboy's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Oil will not pour out and the connector will have to be disconnected. It is possible to disconnect from under the car. just follow the wire up to the connector past a fastener to the chassis. if I remember right its a narrow connector that releases from the top of the connector....Be patient <_< should be a 10 min job once the car is on jacks
Parts: Front brakes (Pads)? less than 100.00 Front bearings 40.00 ea Oil seperater 140.00 Small leaks... suggest run the hell out of it... should clear up Water pump.. clean it DIY or take it to an Independent!!!
Do yourself a favor and replace all the coil paks, as Loren said they get brittle with age and heat, sunset has them for around 40 bucks apiece
9nine6 replied to 9nine6's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Definitely replace all of them. It's not a big job, but a fiddly one, and coil packs aren't too expensive. Thanks thats what I decided to do.. They're only $40 bucks apiece..
9nine6 posted a topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)CEL, Durametric says misfire cyl 2 replaced #2 coil pack.. problem clears.. 200 miles and 1 track day later, CEL .....Durametric now says misfire cyl 1 and 5. Whats the general rule with 50 K mi. and many track days. when 1 coil goes bad should I expect more going bad?? is it a good idea to replace the rest??
9nine6 replied to dcboxster's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Thank you, gents. I have sourced the part from the states, as it's less than half price from a UK OPC. Should be with me between 4-10 working days (I'll just have to put up with the reduced performance for a few more days!). Many thanks for the info and suggestions. Dave :renntech: X2 on the electronics parts cleaner
Anyone know or can direct me to What it takes to deploy the Cab pop up bars. Someone hit me standing still, :cursing: and the bars popped. can any info be derived from that???
9nine6 replied to Izzy's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)I did a DIY install on GT3 front and rear sways on my 01 Cab, straight forward, no special tools, took about 1.5 hr. When I did the sways I had PSS9 springs/shocks. You can so the springs and shocks without the sways , but I'm not sure you want to do the sways w/o the springs. I'd do some further research.. The whole package is fantastic... Roy S.
9nine6 replied to rjf123's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)FWIW I just went through the same thing for the left front, It was a PIA for the first time. I asked the same questions, and got little help. YOU do not have to remove wheel carrier, therefore no alignment is necessary The SIR porsche I'm told will work if you get the porsche one WITH the attachments. Check out the OTC Hubtamer kit, which I used, heat the wheel nut, freeze the bearing, Hub and Axel on the install. I did not heat the wheel carrier, not necessary and I felt there was too much mass to heat. BTW try an get someone the help you that has replaced wheel bearings before, don't have to be experienced on the 996. Key to the whole thing is to remove the top bolt on the front droplink, and push down on the wheel carrier so the axel will clear the back. It will make sense when you get into it. \Good luck Roy S
Anyone know of a bearing press kit where I don't have to remove the strut assembly on the car OK I now have the OTC master bearing kit, any DIY info around for the front bearings??? :(
9nine6 replied to 9nine6's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Just a follow up on the EVO intake, No problems, after 6 DE days. Improved throttle response, and coupled with the PSE, great aural feedback for engine/throttle RPM/response..
9nine6 replied to alprus's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)I have EVO Systems intake, coupled w/PSE the sound is awesome
