MikeH2 replied to MikeH2's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Just in case anyone else has the same issue, I was able to manually move the seat forward by cutting a slot into the end of the motor shaft. I used a dremel cutoff wheel and slotted it (and part of the motor housing as well), and then after a few hundred turns of a screwdriver, move the seat far enough forward to access the torx bolts to remove the seat.
MikeH2 posted a topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)I have a 2003 C4S and the passenger seat will not move back or forward. I disconnected the plug that connects the motors to the seat, and the motor that would move the seat back and forward has infinite resistance. The other motors have about 1.4Ohms. When moving the switches, I could get 12V applied to each of the motors. My problem is that the seat is as far back as it can go, and I cannot access the bolts there. Is there any way to manually move the seat forward, or to remove it by some other means? Also, I tried wiggling the wires to the motor, but no luck. Thanks for your help.
MikeH2 replied to MikeH2's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Found my answer, hose #18 is comprised of two parts for my car - part number 996-106-850-06 for the bottom half and part 996-106-851-03 for the top half.
MikeH2 posted a topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)I have a 2003 C4S with a manual transmission. I have a leak in a plastic fitting on a coolant hose that comes from the coolant tank. I think the part number 996-106-850. So I ordered one, but the new one I received (version -06) doesn't have the small plastic fitting. In the diagram I've attached, the hose is #18, and the upper fitting (the one that clamp #22 works with) is missing. In the parts diagram, it mentioned that part 996-106-851-02 works with that hose, but there is no picture of that in the diagram. So, I see at least two possibilities, one is that part -851 is the top part of the #18 hose, or that I got shipped only half of a part. And I'm sure there are other possibilities as well. Thanks for reading, and if you can help I would greatly appreciate it. -Mike
MikeH2 replied to duncanoaks's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)I think that model year 2003 and later are MOST.
MikeH2 replied to MikeH2's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Since the dealer's service section is closed for the weekend, is there anyone who works for a dealer that would mind running my VIN and seeing if (and when) the seat replacement was done? My VIN is WPOAA29953S622228. Thanks again for the help.
I recently bought a 2003 C4S, and when I was browsing through the TSB's on this site, I noticed that there was a seat recall that included my car. The TSB mentioned that the dealer should have marked in my maintenance log that the recall was done. I don't have that entry. I'll call the dealer tomorrow, but is there any way to identify the seats as being pre or post recall? Thanks in advance for your help.
