  1. OK ... I checked the fuses and they look good. I checked B2, D9 and E1. They were/are all the ones that seem to have any relationship with the radio. What i'm seeing is the radio works perfectly, the CD cartridge goes in and comes out normally but no CD actually loads. I can't remember if a disk loads automatically or if it waits for the radio to tell it to load. Either way, no CD loads. When you select CD on the radio, it shows "loading" on the screen but the changer does not seem to respond. Does anyone have any other recommendations? Thanks
  2. I will go look for the fuse. I have removed and re-inserted the casette several times and it seems normal. I can't rememember if it immediately loads a CD after the cassette goes in or waits till I select one. Right now, if does not appear that a CD loads into the player immediately following the cassette being inserted. I will track down the fuse. Thanks
  3. I have a 99 996 Cab with the standard radio with a 6 disk cd changer. It's worked great until the other day. Coincidentally, I just changed my battery although I would not expect that to have any impact. The issue (recognized after the battery change) is that when I change to CD mode, the display just says "Loading". No CD appears to ever load and definitely does not play. Does anyone have suggestions or things that I should check / try to verify if there is a problem? I would appreciate any pointers or things that I can check and return with more info. Thanks
  4. Loren PM'd me the code and it worked perfectly! Thank you both for the help. Dan
  5. I changed my battery and found out that my radio was replaced sometime before I owned my 99 cab. So, I have the original radio code card but it does me no good. I just pulled the radio. Can anyone help me? It's a CR220 Mod# BE 4362 S/N: 15031442 Thanks in advance... Dan
  6. Can anyone recommend a good battery replacement for my 99' 996 Cab? I can order the Porsche one but I am guessing that the cost will be very high. Is the international battery that Sears recommends fine? Thanks
  7. I just had a problem with my 1999 996 Cab top. The rear window began to delaminate from the canvas top. It looks like it was glued or welded together originally. The window is now sagging and it obviously looks very bad. I attached some pics. My questions are: 1) Has anyone had this happen and what did you do? 2) Can anyone you all know repair this? (CA central valley or bay area) 3) What type of cost should I expect to repair this? Thanks for any ideas / help. Dan Here are the pics:
  8. Would you mind taking a pic of what your seal looks like today? Also ... maybe a few pics of the change out? I think that I may need to change mine also? I'm curious how long it takes you. Also, I think I checked on the part before. It's fairly expensive ... ~$175. Thanks Dan
  9. Thanks Loren ... at least I know it's not fo my cab. If anyone can use this part i'm happy to give it to you! Dan
  10. I need a little help idenfitying a part that I found in my 99 996 C2 Cab. I think that it may be part of a hard top kit (from the prior owner?) I was doing a little more detailed cleaning and found it in the area where the soft top goes when it's down. Part number is 996.563.551.00 Thanks to anyone that can help. Dan
  11. Guys ... keep in mind that you cannot get factory rebuild parts for your calipers. The ones that Porsche offers are outer dust boots only. I powder coated mine and it took me weeks to find inner seals that would work. There is a good chance that you will have to buy new calipers if you lose your inner seals. Dan
  12. I know at least some of the seals came from Brembo but i'm not sure if they all did. I didn't get part numbers but i'm sure that George @ Akkurat could provide them.
  13. I was finally able to find the seals that I needed. :) :) :) :) I have to say a big THANK YOU to George @ AKKURAT in Menlo Park. After talking with Porsche, then Race Technoligies (Bremo Rep) and finally George @ AKKURAT I was able to get everything back together and the newly painted calipers look great!!! First, I strongly recommend that you don't repeat what I did and attempt to re-build your stock calipers. If for some reason you do... call George @ http://www.akkuratpgi.com/main.php before you start and make sure that you get the parts. Dan
  14. :( :( If anyone can help me with this, I really need it. I have a 99' 996 and just had the calipers powder coated. In the process, I removed the pistons and inner seals. I no longer have them. I didn't think this was a big deal because I had teh "Re-build Kit's" coming in the mail from Sunset Porsche. It apparently is a BID DEAL ... because the rebuild kits are only the outer dust covers. They don't include the inner seals. The parts I have are: 951-352-917-00 951-352-917-01 951-351-917-00 951-351-917-01 Again, these are only the outer (dust cover) seals. I have also called Suncoast Porsche in Florida and they referred me to Racetechnoligies.com (Brembo rep). They said they didn't have them because they were an OEM part (different size pistons). If anyone knows where I can get the inner seals please let me know... Dan Martin
