  1. I took my alternator to a rebuild shop...they rebuilt it. I put it on and it would work for a while then go to 12 volts, start the car later it would work. They tested it good and tried to say it was my grounding. Long story short ...the rebuilt alternator would quit when the temp in engine compartment got to operating temp. Bought a rebuilt one at Auto Zone and it fixed the problem after taking the alternator in & out 3 times. I got pretty good at it!!

  2. Updated July 5, 2006

    Here is a list of the most popular Porsche shop and technical publications:

    Model -- Title -- supplements -- volumes -- part number

    Boxster / Boxster S -- Workshop Manual -- 82 supplements -- 15 volumes -- WKD-483-521

    Carrera (1999 on) -- Workshop Manual -- 99 supplements -- 17 volumes -- WKD-483-721

    Carrera GT (2004 on) -- Workshop Manual -- 4 supplements -- 10 volumes -- WKD-484-521

    996 Turbo / GT2 (2001 on) -- Workshop Manual -- 55 supplements -- 13 volumes -- WKD-484-021

    Cayenne -- Workshop Manual -- 56 supplements -- 16 volumes -- WKD-484-221

    Individual supplements are numbered by manual number plus supplement number. (i.e. WKD-483-721-88 would order supplement 88 for the Carrera Workshop Manuals).

    Now for the bad news. Paper manuals/supplements will be discontinued. Here is May 24, 2006 the statement from Porsche:

    Note on Repair Manual Publishfng / PIWIS Informatlon System:

    The PIWS lnformation System now being implemented provides electronic access to the technical bulletins and other technical information required by your dealership, including most repair manuals.

    The PWIS lnformation System covers repair manuals previously in POSES. Repair manual updates, additions and corrections will be available electronically via PIWIS in real-time, with the publishing process shortened dramatically.

    During CY2006, all repair manual supplement distributions on paper will taper off and be replaced by the PlWlS lnformation System. Once fully implemented, all Porsche repair manuals from CY1984 up to and including the present models will be Included in the PIWIS lnformatlon System.

    Lauren how do you get a Poses for 2000 996

  3. I have a charging problem with my Porsche 2000 996. If I charge battery the meter reads 14 volts for a while then goes to 10 volts and all kinds of lights go on. I had the battery tested good. Removed alternator and it tested good at Auto Zone. I checked wiring from alternator to battery ...tested good. Could it be that the test at Auto Zone was not accurate? Any ideas? Is there any fuses to the regulator that controls the alternator?

    I took the alternator to an auto electric shop and they said the regulator and diodes were bad

    ...they are repairing it. So much for Auto Zone testing. Will keep you posted on final solution.

    Solved the problem ...was the alternator after all. They replaced regulator and Diodes for $145 and we are back on the road. So much for Auto zone testing.

  4. I'm new to the forum and I'm trying to get my alternator out to go get it tested. I get the lights on the panel and the volts dropping so I need to remove but I'm stuck. I have the belt off(thanks to the DIY forum) but I can't find any other info on r/r the alternator. Do I have to remove the throttlebody and all the stuff above the alternator? Any help would be appreciated, thanks!

    Did you get any ifo on replacing alternator. If so could you pass it on
