I was doing a little detailing on MY06 997 the other day when I discovered something very odd. There appeared to be something built up, felt rough, on the edge of my right side headlight lens(in the gray area). I couldn't see it, but I could feel it. I put a little Goof-Off on the corner of a rag and attempted to clean off, thinkiing it might be bug guts I missed while washing. The residue became softer and started shedding in a white, sticky, paste like substance. The lens was not getting any smoother and, in fact, the affected area seemed to be increasing (approx. 1 in. X 2 in.) I now am convinced that there is nothing on the surface but rather the surface is deteriorated. There is no way that the Goof-Off contributed to this. There have been no harsh chemicals (ie: brake fluid) near this area. The damage is limited to the lens edge only. Any thoughts? Defective lens? Thanks!
No further thoughts????? Thanks, Don
Hi All! Does anyone else have any thoughts about a possible solution? I'm really stumped here! Thanks, Don
No, and the car has just rolled past 12K miles. Also just out of warranty in Dec.
Here is the latest: new bulbs from dealer were incorrect. Found the correct ones at Autozone, 2/$5! I checked all sockets, no corrosion or other issues. I checked brake lights, all are ok. When the switch is turned on, BOTH tail lights work for an instant and then the right light goes dark. What to do????? I'm really stumped.
Will do Loren. Thanks!
MY06 997 Carrera Coupe-Manual When I started the car after winter storage I had a warning for the right tail light. The brake and turn lights are fine. I replaced both tail light bulbs (1 light) and still find the tail light inop. thoughts? BTW, you can only buy the bulbs from the Dealer! $6 apiece!
Battery water, way low. Topped off and all continues to work fine.................except for the right tail light. Replaced both bulbs and still dark. Any one else had this problem? BTW, the bulbs can only be purchased at the Dealer!!! $6 apiece!
Do 997 gen-1 (3.6l) headers provide an improvement (power increase) for a 996 3.6? Don
Thanks! That is my next step. Don
I have a new Optima, and mounting kit, standing by, but not yet installed. The car now starts and runs fine with the first key turn! Could it have "healed" itself????
donlycan replied to donlycan's topic in 997-1 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 2S, Carrera 4S)Thanks for the input. I went with Direct. Easy Care was way high (twice). It seems that warranty claims on our cars (maybe engines!!!) has caused huge rate increases. Don't wait! Don
donlycan replied to donlycan's topic in 997-1 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 2S, Carrera 4S)No thoughts? I've spoken with Auto Protection and Direct. I would love references and/or more names. Thanks!
donlycan replied to hunteje's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Thanks! I'm all over it!!
