Thanks Golden, this looks super too. Perhaps I should buy the pad first then go looking at jacks! I went out yesterday, and none of the ones I looked at had a 4" diameter pad (for Geoff's option) and at least my low profile aluminum jack does not have a removable pad for the nice option you have. But thanks all for the replies!
Thanks--this looks great! Still have it at delubozparts: LINK Is the diameter of yours 4"? Just need to find an appropriate floor jack (mine has a smaller diameter pad)
Thanks Loren and carrera. I hate to admit, but I had a rather "unfortunate incident" recently using only the rubber pad on my jack. My mistake, of course, but do not want to repeat. (On the plus side damage was only about $300 for a trim piece and labor--could have been WAY worse.)
Jon996 posted a topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Here's a question for you DIY types. Does anyone sell a floor jack pad with a pin to engage the hole on the 996 jack points? I thought I had found one at Pelican, but the diameter is huge (6.25 inches)--must be for a commercial lift.
Jon996 replied to rwoodard's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Just interested--what are the symptoms? I have heard about a rattle, but not sure if it is a constant rattle or a rattle just when going over bumps.
That's it! I think (but am not sure) that the 996 C4S shares the same skirt with the Turbo. Where do you get these great diagrams! Edit: I am not quite sure if this is the right piece. I am looking for the black plastic piece that might be just below this. It might be called the Rocker Panel Cover too. . . . Thanks again for your help I think I might need this part: 996-504-363-00-01C-M100 but need to confirm somehow.

Thanks much for the help, but I think the name of the piece I need is the driver's side Side Skirt. On my car (C4S) it's black plastic. The jack slid just enough to break the skit mounts.
For the first time I had a jack slip off the jack point while lifting. Just did not center it good enough. Not a disaster, but I ended up breaking the drivers side bottom black plastic skirt. I have been searching, but could not find the part number for the driver's side skirt for a 2003 996 C4S.
Hi! I have seen the problem of inaccurate readings, but this is a little different. I will be driving along and it will go to zero (with red light flashing) and then get the message "failure of fuel level indicator . ." As I drive along, it typically comes back. If I fill up it always comes back on. The dealer has the sender unit out, but it seems to check out OK. They check resistance as they move the float, and did not pick up any problems. Off warranty, so the idea of replacing the cluster for $2532 plus labor is not very attractive. Anyone here of this problem? Thanks, Jon
Jon996 replied to Deftones1's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)I always wanted a 911, but they were always twice what I wanted to afford. At 50 it finally hit me that a slightly used one is not bad either. So 50; 2003 C4S; still thrilled to drive it!
Whew, nice to see how this turned out for you. Now that they are pristine, you might consider having them covered with Ventureshield (or some other clear bra material). I had mine done and it looks great (and does not seem to scratch).
Thanks for the quick reply (again!)!
Greetings again! Can you please give me the part number for item 27 (inner race) in the illustration below! Thanks much!
Hi! I know this has come up a lot, for example: http://www.renntech.org/forums/index.php?s...amp;#entry14785 Just two questions before I remove the vent: 1. Just wondering why we need to remove covering cap 28. Is there another screw underneath? 2. Last time I tried to remove an AC vent (passenger side this time) I pulled the screws but it was still REALLY stiff and I chickenend out. I saw a few other comments on this, but never a resolution. Are there tabs I am missing? Any other suggestions or tips? The vent is wood trim and I do not want to crack the finish. Thanks--my headlight switch is acting up and I have a new one on order. Best Regards, Jon
