Could someone provide instructions on how to remove the console on my 997? Does the brake level hve to be removed?
Thanks to everyone that offered help and feedback. Thanks again!
Follow up to problem. I took the inner fender liner to inspect the fan. It was jammed and would not turn. I forced slightly to rotate and a small rock came off. It was jamed between the blade "skirt" and the housing. This gap can be 1/8" and as small as 1/16". Once the rock came off, the fan started working perfectly. Words to the wise, inspect cooling fans on regular basis for small rocks that are slinged from the tires and can keep fan from rotating. Problem solved.
Are both fans meant to work simultaneously? Does one come on with A/C and other thermostatically sensing water temperature? What's logic? I spotted issue becasue oil temp was slightly hotter, maybe 25 degrees (up to 250 on gage). Thanks.
jsamayoa posted a topic in 997-1 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 2S, Carrera 4S)Left fan on Carrera S 2005 comes on but right side does not. Water temp is normal. Oil temp is slighlty elevated (close to 250 F). Is this normal or is fan bad? Thanks.
jsamayoa replied to jsamayoa's topic in 997-1 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 2S, Carrera 4S)Chatter could be the result of a prematurely worn release bearing, or the remainders of glazing on the clutch itself. IMS is shorthand for the intermediate shaft, which has a bearing at the rear of the engine (where it meets the transmission) that can fail prematurely. There's been some talk about an IMS failure detection system coming from Flat 6 Innovations (who also provide a retrofit), hopefully we'll hear soon. A very small but vocal number of people with M96/M97 engines from the Boxster and 911 have seen this bearing fail with catastrophic result, usually destroying the engine. The bearing starts its life as a sealed bearing, but oil eventually evacuates the bearing grease, and destroys the bearings and races. The speculation on prevention runs from replacement to frequent oil changes to driving like you stole it; all topics are covered ad nauseam on every P-car board if you do a search. Let us know what it turns out to be with your clutch! Mine's got a little chatter in reverse but nothing that I worry about. Mark
jsamayoa posted a topic in 997-1 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 2S, Carrera 4S)My 2005 997 Carrera S has had slight clutch chatter since I bought with ~9K miles. Sometimes is better and I drive gently never a hard start. Seems too chatter worse in reverse. Someone mentioned issues with 2005's? Also, stupid question, what is meant by IMS? Is chatter a concern or typical of this year? Thanks.
Thanks a lot for the info!
Does any one know how to remove the two extra bumper pieces to each side of license plate on back bumper? I do not wish to damage them so I can reinstall later. I have looked under car - nothing obvious how to take off. European models do not have these. I want to add an extension plate to mount car badges to either side of license. Thanks for help. Car is US 2005 Carrera S.
jsamayoa replied to skate's topic in 997-1 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 2S, Carrera 4S)Have the same issue as yours on a 2005 Carrera S, 12,000 miles. Clutch "chatters" slightly when engaging at low RPM. Strangely enough, and this makes no sense, the "chattering" is worse when I am in reverse. Dealer says it's normal. I do not beleive it is. Drove newer Carrera S (2007) and was smooth. Would like to know if your issu resolves after new parts. Thanks.
