Are you referring to the "normal" 997 mechanism p/n 997 424 010 00 or to the option IXCZ short shift version, p/n 997 424 983 00? Yes, good question
This is embarrasing and frustrating at the same time. Dealer had to drop the engine due to a "hard fault" on a knock sensor. Well, guess what.......while the car was sitting out back during my new garage construction, mice decided to take up residence in the engine compartment and chewed through some wires. Frustrating because if my garage was finished, I could have done this myself as I have a four post lift and the other required tools. Live and learn. I'm supposed to get her back tomorrow after a $2400 mouse fix at the dealer. At least I'm at the point where we are parking on the new slab and not out it the dirt anymore. I need a drink.
Put the rear up in the air yesterday, pulled the air filter box out and checked the hoses, lines, etc. All looks OK, I guess I will just have the dealer diagnose it. Before I do, I will run her some more to see if I can hear any honking, thanks for the tip. Ted K
Opinions please, as to what might be wrong with my car..... 2004 TT, 39,000 miles, new Bosch plugs at 30,000. Car feels normal around town, no issues, no warning lights. Short blips at 1/3 throttle feel good and gets to .7 bar. By short I mean 2.5K - 3K rpm, feels like it wants to run, but then... Full throttle is the problem...3K - 6K rpm boost first hits .5 then decreases to .4 and that majic boosted acceleration is simply not there and the rpm's climb slowly. All pipes seem connected. Any opinions appreciated. Thanks, Ted K
The best thing I ever did for the car is to install custom front grills. Keeps 95% of the road junk out! No effect on temp. Bad exposure on picture 1 so you can see the grills. You can see the simple attachment method in picture 3.
Yes, the entire assembly comes out. You need to first make sure that the center pin is pulled all the way out to the end of its travel before pulling on the body to remove it. It's probably wrong, but I use two screwdrivers together to slowly work the center pin out to end of travel before removing the body.
Just got a service history summary printout from the local dealer but the listings for the most part are too brief to understand. Example...... 4 C O3POZ PORSCHE MAINT, or 2 W 3OPOZ *PORSCHE MANUAL. Is there a translation list anywhere that I could access? Did a search and came up empty. Thanks Ted K
TedK replied to packetstorm88's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Man, I had no idea what I was getting into when I started the cleanout/recondition project two weeks ago. My radiators were full of junk like everyone elses, but the radiator fins were seriously messed up, plus they were full of thousands of mini-pebbles(really, I mean thousands). I probably spent 8 total hours just straightening the fins and cleaning the radiators using screwdrivers, welding tip cleaners, air pressure, water pressure, and plenty of cursing. Finished them off with a coat of special radiator paint from Eastwood. After that was done, I decided to add some grills to help filter out some road junk, and after searching this and other boards I came up with my own variation. Bought some powdercoated hex mesh from customcargrills.com and attached the pieces to the grill inserts with black bailing wire(several places). I am quite happy with the results and since today its 80 outside, I can tell you there is no effect on operating temp. Thanks to CosmosC4S for the original inspirational posts. Hard to get the right exposure to show the way the car looks.
Loren, where should I place the front cable before I put the front end pieces back on? Currently off the car are the fascia, forward wheelwell covers, center radiator gasket/shroud, side radiator ducts, bumper & energy absorbers. One hell of a radiator cleaning project!
