An interesting story and not too surprising as it relates to the warranty company. The argument that could be made is that with the rebuilt engine Porsche provides a warranty thereby reducing the exposure of the after market warranty company. With this argument perhaps you should have stuck to your guns for full coverage. After all what does Chilton have to do with Porsche dealer service pricing. Another thought, should you consider canceling the after market warranty and recoup some money now that you have a 2 year warranty on the new engine.
If you have a Pep Boys locally they should have a wrench that fits. An A251B that I bought has the 14 flat 74 MM size for 3/8" drive and it was for a Ford Focus. The key is to look for the size, 74MM and 14 Flats, not for the car application.
chaser posted a topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)I purchased an aluminum floor jack with a lifting capacity of 3000 lbs. from Jeg's a few years ago and have never been satisfied with it. I find that it has very little mechanical advantage when lifting the front corners. Basically it takes a lot of effort to jack the car. What recommendations do you have for a lightweight floor jack for use on a 996, Evo, and an Audi Avant? Thanks....Chaser
chaser replied to chaser's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Thanks for the quick reply and advice Tool Pants and Q-Ship. I've located the yellow one, made by Blitz, at Autozone. $8.99. -- Chaser
chaser posted a topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)I would appreciate any suggestions as to what kind of oil catch pan I should use to minimize creating an oily mess on my garage floor. I have a Blitz 15 Qt. Plastic oil catch pan but am concerned about the initial pressure of the oil hitting the shallow catch area of the pan. I've never changed oil on a 996 so I don't know what to expect. Thanks Chaser 03 Carrera
chaser replied to Flyer007's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Also, regardless of the carriers insurance claims, acquire your own. It is very inexpensive and will provide you with the comfort that if anything happens during shipment you will be covered.
chaser replied to der meister's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Nice wheels...would you be kind enough to pass on to me the manufacturer and style.
chaser replied to ivass's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Excellent "Tongue in Cheek" I'll wait patiently for the "Voluntary Recall". A great post however, giving everyone a head's up to a problem that could be extremely dangerous. I had a similar problem with my '61 356 in '74.

I agree about the reflection problem. No I don't use ArmorAll either...who would. I suspect that most people just live with the problem. I find that the issue is exacerbated when driving in and out of sun and shade. So....anyone else find this an issue?
chaser replied to Endaar's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Just a couple of thoughts. Has the 30k check been accomplished? If not will they do it as part of the purchase agreement. I would also want to see the DME readout.
