  1. Very easy to replace. Open engine lid and then unbolt and slide out. But lights are not cheap.
  2. For the last couple of weeks I have had recurrent idle problems on my 99. I get no CELs. I have run techron through the car twice. I have removed and cleaned the idle control valve which was covered inside with carbon build up, the MAF and throttle body. Provided only temporary relief for a day or two. Will there be codes to read eventhough I am not getting a CEL. Is it worth just replacing the ICV and seeing if that does the trick. It was really caked and though I soaked it with carb cleaner and let it sit and then cleaned it two more times there was still some carbon deposits left.
  3. Mystery solved. its now two seperate parts. 996-541-541-01 and an outer rubber seal 996-541-531-01
  4. The one on the car about 1/2 inch the replacement part labeled on the part 996.541.541.01 about 1/4 inch The part # on the existing one is 996.799.541.00
  5. Looking for correct current part # for '99 996 coupe windshield trim. Dealers all say 996-541-541-01 however, that part is much narrower. The existing trim say 996-799-541-00, which I believe has been replaced by a different part.
  6. Yup its a scraper. Have it om my 99 and I still can't get out of my driveway wthout scrapiny a little.
  7. How involved is replacing the front windshield trim is this DIY?
  8. I have the fabspeed mufflers on my '99 996. While I am very happy with the sound, there is some occassional resonance around 2300-2600 rpm which is around 60-65mph in 6th gear.
  9. I don't believe the aerokit II will fit your car. If its the same bumper as for the 996 it is for the facelifted 02 and on 996s. You need the Aerkit I bumber for 99-01 996s
  10. I agree the OEM kit is the way to go just had it installed on my '99 996 front bumper and skirts only. Just beware of Departstop on E-bay and LA Porsche Dismantellers. I would try sunset, suncoast and brandywine.
  11. That sucks. 3.6 is not any easy fit, different electronics etc. I believe a remanufactured motor from porsche is between 8-10k not including installation.
  12. I like the sylvania bulbs I think they are ultra white, don't use that blue tinted crap.
