  1. thanks logray, your threads and comments are always very helpful and I've spent hours pouring through most of them. Thanks for sharing what you learn and do along the way!
  2. okay, i know search is your friend, found most of the torque specs one at a time in different threads but cant locate the following. AOS (2) bolt torque to case Oil Cooler (4) bolts torque to case tightening sequence for flywheel bolts 19ft.lbs then 90* stretch tightening sequence for pressure plate bolts 17ft.lbs thanks for any input
  3. I'm going to pull the tranny this weekend and the links I had to the various manuals with the torque specs for the job don't seem to be working any more. My plan is to replace all the usual suspects while I'm there but I really need to find the torque numbers before I start. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
  4. So, I just finished up this DIY. I opted to do the o-rings, size #31 from Home Depot plumbing/faucet repair area. Getting the torx bolts off the back of the wheel was by far the hardest part! I disconnected the battery, put the key in the ignition and turned it so I could rotate the wheel and loosen the bolts. Once they were broken free I turn the key off and removed it from the switch. Then I loosend the torx bolts all the way, they don't come out but you'll feel them come free. These bolts are very short. The airbag was obviously coming free as you could see the gaps around the airbag in the wheel and feel the thing come loose. My rubber grommets were worn, sagging and had the contacts off center as a result. The horn would beep on bumps and when I turned the wheel until I finally pulled the fuse a few months back to get some peace and quiet. I ended up using 8 o-rings total, 2 at each corner, 4 on tops and 4 on the bottoms with no other washers. I put the T30 torx bolts back into the frame, then put the carrier assembly back together with the 4 bolts and then set the frame into the steering wheel and tightened them down. Then I snugged down the 4 bolts, reconnected the ground and the airbag electrical fitting and fit the unit into the wheel. The T30 torx bolts tighened down a lot easier than they came off and seemed to be much easier the get the screwdriver set into the head. I'll say it again, getting these things loose was frustrating to say the least but persistence and a T30 screwdriver with a vise grips for leverage eventually did the trick I reconnected the battery, replaced the fuse, put the key in the ignition and closed my eyes while I turned it over. She fired up and the horn operates like brand new. This site has saved me a fortune over the years and it's really made taking care of my 996 very enjoyable and rewarding. I can not thank everyone enough for all the information and experiences they've shared, especially Loren! :renntech:
  5. Boadwalk Porsche always treats me right, but the best prices for parts are always found online in my opinion! John
