  1. Hi, I have a 2011 S and am wondering if there is a way to silence or at least turn down the audible tones from the parking sensors? Thanks, -Eric
  2. I wasn't able to get that bolt off under the intake. I think it's an 8mm bolt (I was almost able to get a wrench on it) and so I opted to cut the line on both sides of that bracket, put the new line/valve in place and then zip tie it to the old piece of line I left attached to the bracket. I will probably take the manifolds off over Winter when I clean them and the throttle body. It's too soon to see if the P0446 code is fixed, but my other annoying symptom has gone away, which was it was very hard to start after fueling up. I filled up this morning started right up without issue. Previously I had to crank for a bit and hit the gas pedal to start up and then keep it running for a moment before moving as it sometimes stalled. I'm glad that is solved, that was getting very annoying. I'll update when I've driven a few hundred miles. -Eric
  3. I have the valve, does the intake need to be removed to get to the valve?
  4. I replaced both valves that are located above the front passenger tire, behind the headlight. Still getting the same codes. I wasn't able to get the valve changed in the evap canister, I may try again, I had trouble getting the canister out and was running out of time. I am getting a sound which I tracked to the vent that is near the gas cap, which comes from where I replaced the valves. Sounds like a fan or motor type noise, but I think it's a sucking sound. I can stop the noise by putting my finger over the vent tube. I have also ordered the other valve (#1 from the diagram). Could that one be related? If bad maybe drawing in too much air? -Eric
  5. I apparently ordered the wrong valve (which is the other valve in the assembly) and so I will have to wait until the correct valve arrives to complete this task. I did check fuse E6 and it is fine. Any other thoughts as to why it would be difficult to start after filling up (and this only ever happens after filling up, otherwise starting is not an issue). When the correct valve arrive, I also plan to remove and check the valve on the canister as that is the one I errantly ordered. There are 2 valves located in an assembly behind the passenger headlight, basically directly above the tire. I was able to get in there and remove both valves from the headlight opening. Thanks, -Eric
  6. OK, that's what I have sort of figured out during all this research. I will try this valve this weekend and hopefully not move on from there :) -Eric
  7. OK, that makes a lot of sense, thank you. I agree (now) that there was nothoing wrong with the sensors :) Based on a thread I read I would need to either replace the valve I purchased, or another valve ( http://www.pelicanparts.com/cgi-bin/smart/more_info.cgi?pn=996-110-129-06-M100&catalog_description=&Regeneration%2520Valve%2520from%2520Throttle%2520Body%2520for%2520Fuel%2520Vapor%2520System%252C%2520Boxster%252FBoxster%2520S%2520%2528%2531%2539%2539%2537%252D%2530%2534%2529%252C%2520Each%2520 ) which I think is the one that runs under the intake previously mentioned. -Eric Picture is a bit poor, but that looks like the item. You should also blow air into the purge air line (item#3 in diagram): Thanks for the diagram. It's strange, I found this thread (http://www.renntech.org/forums/topic/33970-strange-whistling-sound/?hl=%2Bstrange+%2Bwhistling+%2Bsound) last night and it references the valve I purchased being located basically behind the passenger side headlight. I think his was a MY '00, did they change things that much year over year? Thanks for all your help, it's been helpful. -Eric
  8. OK, that makes a lot of sense, thank you.

  9. Perhaps you need to be more specific on which valve you are talking about - as the one in this thread is the one on the canister. What was your fault code(s)? I ordered part# 99660521301 based on reading a couple threads and getting the P0446 code on my car. I have replaced both sensors in front of the pre cats, still getting the P0446 and also P1128 & P1130. I saw a couple threads here refernceing this valve as well as the one under the intake manifold. Also when I fill up with gas the car is very hard to start, I have to crank it several times and also use the gas pedal, making me think the evap tank valve may be the better choice to replace. I welcome any suggestions. -Eric
  10. Did they move this valve to the engine area in '01? The parts diagram shows the valve at the other end of the line, or am I missing something? It's part #9 in this link http://www.autoatlanta.com/porsche-parts/986-97-04/201-20.php?pn=99660521301#a but where is that top assembly located?
  11. Yes I did, and zoomed in. Maybe different model years?
  12. I have a 2001 Base and purchased a new vapor canister valve. I removed the front tire and part of the cowling(?) but was unable to locate the valve to replace it. Anyone have any suggestions how I mat find it? Thanks, -Eric
  13. So yesterday Nick was helping me install my new alarm computer. We were finally successful in getting the Immobilizer code inpuit into the new alarm and when he went to transfer in the key codes we read out from the old alarm computer we were unable to continue because the readout showed "TIME BLOCK RUNNING" I found one reference to it on Renntech that pretty stated we could wait from 1-16 hurs for this process to complete. We weren't going to wait that long so I pulled the new alarm and put the old one back in to get home. I am wondering if anyone has seen this before and has any advice or knowledge of this. Also now that the new alarm computer has the immobilizer code input would putting it back in and leaving it for a while allow this process to complete so we can add keys later without having to wait? I am guessing this process is the alarm computer syncing up with the OBC. Seems ridiculous to take that long. Thanks again Nick for your help and patience. Thanks, Eric
  14. I recently did the 4x40 to 6x40 AMP swap and it is well worth it keep looking on ebay and Craig's list until you find one. I can't comment on which to start with, speakers or AMP, because I haven't changed out speaker syet but plan to. My setup is the stock front and door speakers and Harvey's rear kit and going from the rears hooked to the head unti @ 18 watts to them hooked to the AMP @ 40 watts was a big difference. I have the seats all the way back and can still hear the difference with the rear speakers. I bought the AUX cable that allows me to conenct mt Sirius and Zune via the AUX input and love that option. What a difference from listening to Sirius over the built-in FM transmitter! I love it! I plan on upgrading the front and door speakers soon as well. Eric
