    1999 Carrera Cabriolet
  1. Can go as far as rear 17mm, front 15mm. With conservative camber or 1 degree or so. No rub.
  2. Will do and post results here, tx.
  3. Wonder if it is 4. hard to tell.
  4. Green arrows show rubber trim. Which, I am guessing that is number 6. Then, the metallic piece clamps onto the lower part of the trim, seems like. It goes across the bottom of the glass and that's it. Red arrow on pic. pic shows detail of right side of hardtop/car.
  5. That's was my initial thouth Loren, but... the trim in question is part of the frame, rather, and it goes not curve on the corner it just goes to the end of each side of the glass. I just took a pic.
  6. The trim that is on the lower part of the hardtop glass (I think is metallic or hard plastic) is heavily dented because previous owner did rest hardtop vertically on the floor on it. trying to find that piece, but It does not even show on schematic drawings. Thanks.
  7. I wonder if hydraulic fluid low? http://www.renntech.org/forums/tutorials/article/56-cabrio-top-hydraulic-fluid-step-by-step/
  8. Or you can't skip the towels because "you know you are careful", and you'll end up with marks. Ask me how I know.
  9. Duane at visionmotorsports... philipj did recommend it to me and he rebuilt my engine, he's honest reliable and reasonable. lake forest area.
  10. Btw, the dealer telling you does not mean anything. There is a difference between for example a cracked head gasket at around 2.5k, or a cracked cylinder requiring a full rebuild. I have sent you a PM for a good engine, but before you might want to take the car to a reputable indy, and have him look at it.
  11. Hi, are those the sport tips, or regular?

  12. Is your car a C2, 99? Mine is... I did put OEM xenons as an upgrade, but they were plug and play just removing the old lights ... dunno if they self level but if they do, I can check it out if same car than yours. Let me know.
  13. Check for cracked header. It might let fluid get into cylinder(s) and cause hydro-lock. Then you stat the car and the coolant has to come out of the cylinder thus the bang. If bad luck, then a cylinder might break crack. A cracked header will set you back 2k. A cylinder 10k (complete rebuild).
