  1. Mine fell out - is it an issue to drive around like this (after replacing wheel), even for a short time? i.e. are they for convenience, or actually required to orient the spacer? Simon
  2. Quick question - does anyone know the size of the counter-sunk set screws for 996 5mm OEM spacers? I believe it's M6 x something. Thanks in advance! Simon
  3. Hi, A rather basic question, but I need the trim and nozzle piece for the passenger side headlight on a US 996 C2 2004. I have the parts manual, but don't know what side L R refer to, so is the correct part: 996 628 143 00 or 996 628 144 00 ? So, is 'L' facing the car, or sitting in the car?? Thanks in advance. Simon
  4. Great advice kgoertz - I used a small AC compressor using one of the inflatable toy adapters (See photos) - hit the compressor for about 1 second and the washer pops up. Leaving the compressor connected, but not on, keeps enough back pressure to keep the washer popped up as I removed it. The best way is to lightly compress the tabs on the main shaft, then the chrome cap just pops off. btw I completed one light - for me I needed one 3M kit per headlight, so the passenger side is next weekends project.... Simon
  5. This is a great fix. I had noisy seats in my 2004 C2 Cab ever since I bought the car in 2007. It was 'on my list' to remove the seats - ugghh. I gave this fix a go using the Teflon spray (from Amazon.com), and it worked perfectly. 5 minute fix. I've attached a couple of photos showing the bushing cover, both on and off. It's more like hard plastic than rubber, and to remove it I found pushing with your thumb on the side facing you as you grab it from behind the seat the seems to work. Simon
  6. I have some pretty dingy headlights on my 2004 996, and I plan to use a 3M kit to restore them. My plan is to remove the headlights and place them in a jig to hold them while I preform the restoration. One question though - has anyone done this on headlights that have washer with the chrome caps, see photo? Should I try to remove these first, and if so, how? I've looked in the forum regarding the chrome caps and there are generally instruction on how to install replacements, but not on removal. I don't want to break anything, since that would mean I need new headlights. Thanks in advance. Simon
  7. Does anybody know the p/n of the rubber tray liner on the passenger door side of a 2004 C2 Cab? Car wash must have sucked it up :( Picture shows where it would go - hope I can buy this part separately. thanks, Simom
  8. Thanks for the link! Any comments on the other part of the question, i.e. the arrow on the diagram and if I've located the right thing to grease as per the TSB??? Simon
  9. Hi, I have the noise from the soft top on by 2004 C2 Cab. I've got the TSB and have a quick question - the TSB talks about applying grease on a rubber spacer as show below, however this actually looks like a cast piece of metal, not rubber... Do I have the right piece? It actualy looks like it's got some residual grease on it so it looks right. Also, the krytox grease appeas to be $70 (???) a tube - it threre a non-porsche equivalent someone could recommend? Simon
  10. Hi, I have previously only bought tires and had alignment down by my dealer - since I now go to an independent for everything else, is there anything special about the alignment that my local Howard Tires can't do. Also, I assume N rated tires are available to non-Porsche dealer. Also, I've seen N=1 to N=5 - what do the numbers actually refer to? thanks, Simon
  11. It looks to me like Das Schild (the plastic inside hood protector) is no longer made for the 996 - everybody I've looked at is out of stock. Has anybody positively confirmed this? thanks, Simon
  12. Hi, I have a 2004 C2 Cab and I want to replace the front lid microswitch - are these instructions relevant for a 996? http://www.renntech....ch-replacement/ Seems like I can just peel back the liner, not remove it. Also, these instructions don't talk about cables (i.e. mechanical) that must be attached to the latch?? Thanks, Simon
