  2. I have a 1995 993 with a heating question. Since i have owned this car, i have never really had the best heat in the winter driving months. I purchased an OBD Porsche test tool that turns on the fans, opens flaps, etc... this tool is very useful, and when using it to test the HVAC, everything seems to work. My next experiment involved checking the differential pressure valves that sit underneath the engine and divert hot air underneath the car or to the cabin of the car if the heat is selected. these metal flaps seemed to move freely and i don't think they are of concern. I did find o
  3. Hi, i was wondering if anybody in eastern north carolina has a porsche tool to reset the airbag light. i made the mistake a few weeks back to turn on the key (to listen to the radio) while i was replacing the original steering wheel. of course now i know that it was a mistake. the airbag light is locked on. I was wondering if anybody in the area has the obd2 connector to reset the light, and save me the drive to leith in cary, nc. any help is appreciated. oh, it's a 99 carrera. thanks. keith
  4. good points, here's my answers to what i have read so far. my '99 carrera has no glove box so i never factored that into my design. thank you for pointing that out. if anyone can provide me with the distance from the left edge of the glove box to the center console, i may be able to make adjustments to that side. i do agree that that it does take away the symmetry of the space but trying to find a location that can accomodate the ipod isn't a simple task in a 996/986. i have no problem going back to the drawing board, i just want to make sure when i do, i draw it right. the issue rega
  5. it does add about 5 inches of space to the right side of the center console. I am about 6 foot 1, 210lbs, and it didn't hinder my leg room. i orignially started out by designing an ipod adapter that replaced the upper and lower storage in the lower center console. it looked strange. it totally accomodated an ipod, charged it and played through the radio but then was a problem because then i didn't have a place to put my sunglasses, or anything else. I then moved the iPod to the right a little bit and tried adding to narrow but deep storage areas. Still looked a little strange. After s
  6. i was actually hoping to get some feedback on my creation. i have designed and manufactured an ipod dock for porsches. currently it does not support the iPod nano 4G; iPod touch 2G; iPhone 3G. But that will soon change. my goal showing it to you guys on renntech is to get your feedback on what i have made and maybe determine what a good asking price would be. I have designed and built an iPod adapter that will fit in a 1999 through 2004 Porsche 911 (996), or in a 1997 through 2004 Boxster (986). The Porsche adapter is an iPod docking station that allows simple "plug and play
  7. do you have a copy of the tsb? anything you can link to me? is anything adjustable under the dash behind the pedal? i'm thinking i still have air in the lines and just haven't got it all out.
  8. yes, it still has the plastic top on it. i was told today that maybe my problem is coming from bleeding the clutch using by pulling a vacuum on the lines instead of pushing fluid through the lines using something like a "brake bomb" which forces fluid through the lines from the fluid resoivor. thoughts? haven't tried anything yet.
  9. help please!!! i have a 1999 996 carrera 2 with 82,000 miles and have recently replaced the clutch, pressure plate, and release bearing. i performed the work myself. and went by the clutch changing procedure in the factory repair manuals. everything came apart and went back together smoothly. i also followed the steps in order to bleed the clutch. and while the pedal seemed a little softer then before the clutch change, i still took it off the lift and made a test run down the highway. i could shift through the gears with no problem. but the pedal did feel noticably lower then befor
