  1. Completed the job today with parts from Sunset. Approximately $230 in parts before express shipping (included new tank, 1 gallon in coolant, sensor, new cap). MY99 C2. Took me about 2-3 hours. I did some other things at the same time (air filter, cabin particle filter) and I had a few bumps in the road (lost a grommet, car wouldn't go high enough for my jack stands, had to re-read parts of the directions). Relatively straightforward. Getting the tank in and out is tedious. Here are a few comments: 1) Agree with the poster that recommended REMOVING the air pump instead of pushing it as
  2. To clarify the post above: Code #46 with the airbag light on the dash is the problem I had. I reset the light and it has not come back in 1day/60 miles of driving. We'll see what happens.... Agree on the speed sensor -- probably the SMOG test Driving the car this week, will see what happens with the MAF-related code Thanks for the feedback, this board is really helpful. Cheers, John
  3. Hi: I have a MY99 996 C2 Coupe I got the dreaded seat sensor error 46 a few weeks ago, so I thought I would start the process by clearing the code. While I was there, I checked for other errors and encountered speed sensor errors that I didn't anticipate/understand. The only contributing factors I can imagine are: > Tires replaces a few thousand miles ago. Don't know if they ran the car on a machine (but I doubt it) > California SMOG test a few weeks ago -- I know for sure they run the rear wheels (only) on a treadmill-type device. Is it possible that the smog test triggered
  4. I don't know how I missed this posting when I was looking earlier -- I have EXACTLY the same symptoms. I ordered a new cable (cheap) but then realized that mine doesn't appear to be broken... I will be following these directions immediately. Update 2/9/2008. Followed the process as described and it worked perfectly.
