  3. I'm in Western PA and just got hybrid 30,000/45,000 on my 2000 966 C2 done for $872.21 by an Independent shop including inspection ($65), Parts($367.84 (Plugs (110.40), Belt(43.04), Fluids & Oil(76.80), Filters(135.20), MCI Service (2.40)), Labor ($380.00) and Taxes ($59.37).
  4. Loren -- Thanks for doing this. It is greatly appreciated. 2000 996 C2 CDR-220 Type 4462 Serial # X503 1318 48/98 --Tom
  5. My in-laws had a pickup truck that was the home of a really dead animal. They never could find it, but it was believed to be in the dash somewhere. Since the truck lived outside there was no way to keep other animals out of it. I know the guy who has it now and I will check to see if the odor is still there. :unsure: Good luck on finding it. I doubt it is a small mouse, if you can smell it. Rat maybe or something larger?
  6. dporsche74 -- I went through the same exercise 2 years ago and I was even including Boxsters. (it was the golf bag in the trunk thing) The only real conclusion I came to was the 98-99 boxsters and 996's had some main issues porous engine block issues, RMS issues and oil separator issues. The engine block or its remanufactured engines and separator issues caused some engine failures. Most of those issues were fixed in 2000+. Glass vs plastic rear windshield. Depends how long you are going to drive the car and what area of the country. I'm in Pittsburgh. My Cab top goes up and do
  7. I have seen this issue with many different vehicles including my 2000 996. I usually keep the clutch depressed and shift into third gear then back into first. A car buff a long time ago clued me into this "trick". Other PCA members talk about Porsche's transmissions are designed to down shift, so you could try at the stop light going fromm 2nd to 1st to see if this helps out. I do not think this is a serious issue. -Tom
  8. Here is an old post for a Boxster with the DYI for the Window regulator http://www.renntech.org/forums/index.php?s...+regulator++DYI Here is the external DYI for replacing the window regulator: http://www.bombaydigital.com/boxster/projects/window/ --Tom
  9. Team -- It what you put into the membership that matters. There are trivial benefits that come with the membership, but the more you participate the better the local PCA becomes. The local organization will put on events it thinks its membership wants, but unless you get in an roll up the sleeves you will only get what they provide. ARPCA just had a car control clinic for members and their families. I was out there with 17 year olds learning to control their cars. It was a blast. If I had not participated it would have been a waste of $42. --Tom
  10. I just realized my problem is not the same. Mine is that when I open the door the window does not drop the 1/2 " that it use to drop. It seems to go up just fine and its only my drivers side door. There is no thud involved.
  11. I just ran into this same issue. I noticed that the temporary work around is to assist the front top of the drivers side window down with my hand. The window will move up properly after this. It jus tnever drops back down. I will try the reseting the window memory with rolling down with switch and holding it for 10 seconds then the same for rolling up. Thanks, Tom
  12. Pardon my lapse of including information. Per the pictures of the plugs above. 2000 996 Cab There are 2 wires one is a light chocolate brown and the other is a lighter brown with an orange ish thin stripe. The end is a male 1 amp plug I was unable to make out the numbers on the plug. I saw 1 AMP 86####### Under it was BMW ###### Thanks again for your thoughts. --Tom
  13. Loren or others -- Is this plug supposed to be plugged into something? This is under the passenger side front seat coming from the bundle of wires coming from the grounding bolt under the seat. I attached 2 pictures, which are not great, but hopefully will give you a better idea of what I am talking about. Thanks, Tom
