jb26jb replied to Sly74's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Very easy to replace. Open engine lid and then unbolt and slide out. But lights are not cheap.

jb26jb posted a topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)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.
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 The existing trim say 996-799-541-00, which I believe has been replaced by a different part.
How involved is replacing the front windshield trim is this DIY?
jb26jb replied to Porsche_Ron's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)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.
jb26jb replied to mcvgums's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)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.
jb26jb replied to nick49's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)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.
jb26jb replied to raul_s_h's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)I like the sylvania bulbs I think they are ultra white, don't use that blue tinted crap.
