zee replied to swede-man's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Your ones are made in Taiwan? I am surprised. I have Dectane lights as well that I ordered from Orange Tuning. They were shipped from Germany and say "Made in Germany" on them.
I tried playing with the switch and now everything works just fine. :)
Yes, the plastic end is still intact. Okay, Ill check the switch. I didnt check that earlier. But I did put a small piece of rubber at the end of the hook and tried again. I didn't work. I haven't tried pushing in the switch yet. Ill try that. I think you are right. The switch might be loose or displaced. Its not broken. No, I meant that I applied pressure to the bottom of the hook when it was trying to latch. Thanks a lot. Ill check the switch and see if thats the problem.
Hi, My top is not latching. It goes up and down just fine and you can hear the motor working. The final step where the latch locks in the center top (near the dome light) keeps going back and forth and the light for the top in the dash does not turn off. The last time I had this problem, I did the Porsche TSB for this. I just cut off a small piece of the plastic replacement and glue it on the latch. No dismantling was required and it worked fine for years. For some reason this does not seem to be the problem since the replacement part is still in good conditions and if I try to apply some pressure with my finger to the latch it still does not lock. Any suggestions what would be wrong and how I can fix it? TIA

I have them installed. Look amazing. Check link below: http://www.6speedonline.com/forums/996/271507-pics-dectane-997-styled-led-tail-lights-installed-my-mk2-996-a.html
Jake, A few more questions: 1-After the install, can I have the regular oil changes at my local Indy without having any issues with the plug? Anything I need to be aware of? 2-I read something about Audio Output for the new IMSG. Whats that? 3-Whats is the warranty on the IMSG? Whats the life of IMSG? 4-I am also planning on getting the IMS Retrofit from LNE. Since they are ceramic, would I still need IMSG? Would the IMSG detect LNE bearing failure (if any)? Thanks!!
Great! Ill give Great! Ill give Tony a call tomorrow. Does the install include new oil and filter? Is it accurate to assume that the total cost would be around $700?
Hi All, I know this topic has been discussed extensively, but I am just looking for the total cost to get the IMS Guardian installed. Any recommendations for shops in the LA/OC area that would do this? Thanks.
Thanks kbull88, win911 and Loren for the replies, I appreciate the prompt response. Win911, i just sent you a pm. :)
