  1. Reply on another board says the nubbin is supposed to be there without a hose, doesn't help my open flap problem tho.
  2. After a detail, my exhaust is running loudly, as if it has had the exhaust plug mod done to make it so. While examining the plug, it sems to be in place but I spyed a tube on the underside of the gray box that looks like it should have a vacuum hose attached to it in the direction of the arrow. Is this supposed to be an open nubbin or am I missing something? 
  3. am interested in placing the microphone for the dension into the stock location of the steering wheel cowl. Does anyone have any schematics on how the cover comes off?

    I got the initial info here homelink mod However, I am going to try to retrofit this 996 idea using the 997 homelink switches: 996 garage door mod What I found out was that the homelink module is in the front end and runs around $500, and is not a reasonable mod to attempt. It seems more worth while to use the porsche homelink switches and hard wire in the transponders that come with the garage door opener behind the map light dome area above the mirror. Has anyone actually tried this? Are there instructions or diagrams?
  5. Will this description of a switch to the PSE exhaust hydraulics work on a GT3 as described for a 997 or will it mess up the torque adjustments? I am afraid to rip up my carpet to find out that it does not look like this. If you know how the PSE works, it's pretty easy to do. You need to cut the 12 v power wire to the solenoid valve and install a switch in it . You can find the wire by pulling up the carpet trim behind the rear seats and removing the metal electronics cover on the passenger side . At the far left rear corner (looking to the back of the car ) there are two wires going out into the engine compartment to the solenoid valve. One wire is lt. green (ground) and the other is red/purple(12 v ) You can cut either wire, but I cut the power wire . Connect the two wire ends to a wire and run the two wires to the front of the car to where you want the switch. (I installed mine in the ashtray )
  6. Before I attempt this, does anyone know much Loren's install instructions would differ if you were installing it into a 997 with all above the same but WITH NAV? (with bose, no cd changer)

    Has anyone figured out how to retrofit a 997 homelink to a GT3?
  9. I just installed an erickson bluetooth car kit and would like to have the PCMII mute when an incoming call comes in. Does any one know where the phone mute is on the PCM II?
  10. If there is a TSB posted, is it an obligation for the service department to perform the repair if the car is under warranty? I took my 2004 996 in to the dealer for several adjustments and asked if they could do anything for the poor range on the remote. He replied; 'that is the way porsche wants it, they like you to be right next to the window when unlocking the car. It is a safety feature." I know there is a TSB for extending the range on the remote, and my VIN# qualifies. I did not push the point because I know that the car needs to go back soon for an oil change. Are they obligated to do the TSB repair if I ask?
  11. I bought the PCM2 from a friend, and am adding it to a 04 996 with already present 6 disc changer and bose amplifier. Before tearing it apart, do I need the fiber optic cable module 996 622 705 00 (radio/pcm with amp and cd changer, not phone) or are all the cables already there when I pull the CDR23?
  12. I am looking for a description on how to do a x74 install, unfortunately x74 is too short of a description for the search engine (suspension searches were not helpful either. ) Does anyone have a link for this install or tips on how to make it go more smoothly?
