  1. Only one stud is leaking and it's stripped, just keep turning and turning. I located a used housing and cover for a steal compared to what most wanted. Can't seem to find anyone who has done this. I'll try the loctite first and see if it helps. thanks
  2. I have a leaking timing chain housing that was repaired once but began leaking again. Anyone tackle this job before and is it a DIY. On a scale of 1-10 how would you rate it.
  3. Broke control arm linkage on 00 C4. In the process of replacing it but unsure of the correct torque. Does anyone have the numbers or is there a site that has the settings? thanks
  4. The old part is a track rod but has been superseded by "AS STEERING TIE ROD" 997-331-045-04 per the retail price list on Renntech $171 Rick 99 996C4 87 944S Thanks for your reply Rick. Have a Merry Christmas
  5. Well, first snow resulted in what I believe is a broken rear lower control arm, not really sure. Almost home and rear end slid out and hit the curb. Looked at the body, no damage but the wheel looked cocked in on one side. Got home, took the wheel off and look what I found. Could someone please tell me the correct name of this part? Doesn't look to hard to switch out. car is 00 C4.
  6. First on my list to do for tomorrow. Just hope and pray I don't have a flat in the meantime. thanks
  7. As the title says, I lost the key to my wheel lugs. How is the best way to remove the key off each wheel? thanks
  8. One of the best things anyone could ever do is to give up something they love to help someone else. May God bless you and your family. Also on the same note as Phillipj, If ever your're in Md, come drive mine as well
  9. The part I need is the plastic flap that protects the convertible top from snagging when the top is being opened. I also need the part that the flap attaches to because one of the tabs is broken off. 00 C4
  10. Front fog lights haven't been working on my car for a while. I got around to changing out the bulbs, and their still not working. I also checked the fuses and they all seem good. Is their a relay that controls the fog lights, and if it is, would it be under the dash or in the rear. Also, which relay would it be. 00 C4.
  11. I post earlier about a problem with my door not locking with the key. Key turs freely, like something is not catching or something is broken. Is there a DIY for door lock replacement.
  12. I changed the window regulator on my passenger side and noticed the next day the key doesn't lock or unlock the driver's door. Strange because I never touched the driver's door. When I turn the key either way, I get nothing, no resistence or anything. The key works in the ignition, but not the lock. Don't know about the remote because that stop working months ago. Any ideas?
  13. In the process of gathering info for installing clamshell motor on a 00 C4. Is there any DIY write-up anywhere on this. Is this something I can do myself and then take it in to be recalabrated? thanks
  14. Thanks for your quick reply. I have not as of yet. I will check both tomorrow. I know how to tell if the fuse is blown by the broken contact. How do you tell if your relay is blown. And if it is blown, can it be picked up at any parts store or will I have to go to the dealer. thanks
  15. 00 C4 with a constant 0410 and 1141 code. I changed out the check valve /change-over valve and the codes came back. Could someone tell me where is the location of the relay for the pump located. I started the car and it appears the pump is not working. I touched it during start-up and didn't feel anything. I also removed the rubber tube which connects it to the valve and I didn't feel any air coming from the pump. I did feel a suction coming from the disconnected hose. Any ideas, I'm all ears. thanks
  16. DIY, you be surprise what you can do with all the help on this board
  17. I just did that mod myself about a month ago. I have a 00 C4, and it fit perfect. There is a surround piece that goes around the cubby. Once that is removed, you'll have the space you need. Also, you have to re-route the wires to the climate control thru the slot in the back of the bottom cubby. Just remove the bottom cubby and you'll have a better idea of how to do it. Also, select the correct size mug or you will spill some. Not perfect, but it works well when you get the right size mug.
  18. The rear driver's window on my 00 C4 went off track. Was able to get it back up by pulling and pressing the button, but it's still not working properly. Anyone have any ideas how to tackle this? thanks
  19. you can really do it yourself. I just did mine a couple weeks ago. A little time consuming, but it was worth it. #1 and #4 was a pain, but you can do it. You can get the DIY right off this board.
  20. I have the same exact thing going on with my top. I heard from someone that it protects the conv. top from snagging, which would result in having a new top installed. If you find out where to purchase this from, let me know. Good luck
  21. thanks for your response, and it makes good sense. Off to Pelican parts
