Here's a photo (below) of what makes that "pop" noise when turning the locking bracket during removal or installation. The pop happens because the locking bar has to travel over the triangular peak in the "channel" of the headlamp assembly, circled in red in the photo. That's the "cam" action mentioned by some writers.
phil996c2cab99 replied to pgvinter's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)My high speed fans and engine fan kick on at 107-108 (225F). If you're hitting 104, you should be able to reach 108 in a few minutes just by idling, to test it. That's what I do and the only way I know of, since I have no durametric, nor have I built my relay jumper (yet).
How to remove this first piece of heating duct (w/many holes) near the brake pedal? (Photo attached). I've removed the first screw (red circle), but something else is holding it in (more screws or attachments). Please advise how I can remove this piece of duct. Thanks. The reason I need to remove it is that it's blocking the brake pedal from returning fully to its starting position (by a few millimeters). Footnote: The photo markups are mine, but the base photo I borrowed from another post, because it was so clear.
Thanks guys, I think I found my answers, and you're right - compressed air is best, don't really want to poke in there, and definitely don't want to remove the grommet, because it's attached to a hose and difficult to reinstall. Part number 996.504.645.00 "Water Drain Grommet".

Water drain plug located just left of the battery, size of a quarter, rubbery around the edges, can I just pull it out by hand to clean it? I tried pulling gently, but no go, so okay to pull harder? I read about compressed air, but frankly I don't see how compressed air will work when a thin metal poker (thinner than paperclip) won't even go in there. I can't see down in there (even w/flashlight), but it feels like a diaphragm of sorts.
