  1. Thanks Ed! Well then I guess I'll just put her' back to normal and stow away the new belt I picked up! I always enjoy finding "good" surprises, like a nice and uncracked poly belt :) Cheers! :renntech: Mine looked about the same but since I had a new one and I was there I changed it anyway. I figured better safe than sorry. A new belt (got it from Sunset) was around $30, original Porsche.
  2. I didn't like the industrial look of the mesh I used for the grills so I re-made the windscreens. These are truly a work of art (I think :P ) and better than the originals because the holes are much smaller and it reduces the air flow. They also cover the bottom more, to further reduce air traffic. Driver's side - front view: Passenger's side - front view:
  3. That looks like a 987. Wouldn't it be cheaper to just get a 987 instead of getting the body parts to dress up a 986? Or are you referring to the color?
  4. Yea, I am going to re-do them using fiberglass mesh instead. The holes are smaller and the color is charcoal. I found a nice mesh on the net with hexagonal holes, much like the OEM wind stop, but I will give this one a try first. Thanks, azzar0.
  5. FYI - New battery purchased today at Sam's Club - Energizer (made by Johnson Controls), E48 - $58 + tax. The 47 was more expensive. I'll post a pic soon.
  6. Hi Glyn, I wish I had a lift and a transmission jack, but I don't :( I don't think I can do any clutch work with the car lifted on regular jacks. I think I still have some life left in the clutch - the RPM doesn't jump up when I switch gears (which would be a sign of an aging clutch) and when I put the car in reverse I don't have a hard time, it goes in easily. I will have to exercise my reverse driving. I usually back up into my garage and the distance from the driveway to the garage is not that big - I don't usually fully release the clutch, which could also explain the shaking. I need to test on a flat surface with the clutch fully released and see how it behaves. Then I can try on a slope, again with the clutch fully released and see what happens then. Thanks for your advice, I'll let you know how these tests perform.

  8. Well, I built my own. They're not as thick as the factory ones, but they do match my grills. I may be able to attach the Lexan covers to these. Here are some pics: I used wire mesh from Lowe's. I drew the shape based on the inside of the leather cover. As you can see, I used the 3 screws as mounting points for the mesh: Almost finished product: Driver side (front view): Passenger side (front view): More pics in the follow up post - ran out of space
  9. That's why I don't let my wife drive the car! Just kidding, she gets to drive it once a month :D I didn't notice any sticking. I changed all brakes a couple of weeks ago and the calipers looked good... Shawn - how do you feel about assisting me in changing the clutch? :) Thanks, azzar0.
  10. Yea... The seller is very nice and he'll let me return the parts. Meanwhile I am going to try to build my own wind deflectors. Thanks, azzar0.
  11. Shawn: For future reference, it is possible to take the driver's seat out without disconnecting the main electrical connector under the seat. The wires are long enough to (carefully) lift the seat out and place it on the ground besides the car. Regards, Maurice. Or just invest in Durametrics and reset your light :) It is a good tool and you can also monitor various functions to see how your engine behaves and how the sensors react, etc.
  12. Exactly - that's the one! I got too excited when I saw the price and didn't read the description carefully... Thanks, azzar0.
  13. I figured out that what I bought is actually not the wind screens, but rather an addition to the windscreens, made of plastic, to further reduce the wind in the cabin. I other words, I do need 1 & 2, and then add these things to the wind deflectors. I apologize for the confusion. Thanks for all your help, azzar0.
  14. Hi Glyn, I cleaned the throttle body just last week. I used to have little fluctuating idling and hesitations when changing 1st to 2nd gear at low RPMs. After I cleaned the TB I noticed improvement. The engine is running smoothly, I just have this issue with backing up. If I give it enough gas and go a little faster it doesn't shake, it's just when I back up using a 'normal' approach. If it is the clutch or the dual mass flywheel, can I still drive around like that or should I have it replaced right away? I would hate to have to put that kind of money into it now. Thanks, azzar0
  15. Can anyone post a few pictures of all the mounting hardware associated with the wind deflectors? Eventually with and without the deflectors mounted, etc. Just the sides, not the center glass, I already have that in. I'm trying to understand how it works and what can be done to replicate this functionality without spending $250 for a couple of plastic clips... Thanks, azzar0.
  16. Juniic, I already have the wind deflectors (1 & 2), I need the clips that they attach to the roll bar with. Thanks, azzar0.
  17. Hi Bill, I already have the center glass mounted. Thanks anyway, azzar0.
  18. It came with just the center glass. I am not sure if the previous owner put it in, he may have.
  19. Hi Nick, Thanks for your quick response. I found something on pelicanparts: 4 986-561-323-00-OEM Set of fastening parts, for, wind deflector 1 $23.50 Is this what I need? Thanks!
  20. Does anyone know where to get the black inserts for the windscreen that go in the roll bar (behind the seats, not the center piece)? Do they have a part number? I should also ask how the windscreen is actually supposed to be mounted. I looked and I don't have any holes behind the seats in the roll bar. Are these some pieces that just clip on or would I have to drill holes into the roll bar? As you can tell I am not familiar with the windscreen product at all. I just have the center glass and I would like to add the other 2 pieces. Any help with preparing the roll bar for windscreens is highly appreciated. Thanks, azzar0.
  21. No, no oil leak. I will have to run more tests and see how it behaves. Thanks.
  22. Hello, I noticed that when I back up the car shakes a lot. I also have to give it plenty of gas. I think this is fairly new, I always back up into my garage and I noticed this behavior only recently. Does anyone know why it shakes and what the fix is or what does it mean? All other gears are fine. Could it be a sing of an aging clutch? MY98 2.5L 5spd 69K mi Thanks, azzar0.
  23. I've had my CQLights kit in for about a month now and I never had these lights come on. What temperature are yours? Did they come with the slim ballast? azzar0.
