  1. Hi guys. Slightly odd problem. I have a quite loud squeak coming from the front of the car when moving. Thought it might be a wheel bearing but it happens when the wheel is unloaded laterally but rolling and seems too high pitched to be a bearing. It seems to take ages to put a car in for service in the UK, any thoughts on whether this could be something to worry about and get emergency assistance to sort out? No noticeable changes in handling with the car. All advice appreciated.
  2. I think the manual is pretty clear on this. Oil pressure gauge moves with revs broadly speaking.
  3. It is done. Loctite and them some. Massive torque needed to shift them!! I have applied plenty of loctite to the new spoiler. Nice big and carbon!! mmm
  4. Hi Loren. It is from the stock 996 Turbo rear wing. That diagram looks like the aerokit. <{POST_SNAPBACK}> The pieces I apparently need to remove are in the bottom of part 1 and attach to the mounts at the top of pt 2 in the diagram. I have a 14mm allen socket (as required) and am struggling to remove them.
  5. Hi Loren. It is from the stock 996 Turbo rear wing. That diagram looks like the aerokit.
  6. To fit into the new carbon wing from Eric at Bumperplugs, I need to get the old bolts out of the old Turbo rear wing. They are hex (allen) bolts that appear to screw in. Anyone know the size tool I need to get them out or any other suggestions. It is bigger than a 12mm Allen key
  7. There is a small catch which clips into a notch on the metal key. You need to pull that back and then the key just pulls out. Just persevere with it - it is terribly easy really when you work out how the key is held in. And the old key definitely goes back together. Sounds like you might be rushing it a bit :) . Check the PCB module is correctly oriented to sit flat.
  8. I have the OEM (ie B&M) SSK in the Turbo S. It is heavy between 1 and 2 but fine 3-6. It is still notchy ie accurate compared with a regular shift. This is apparently completely normal.
  9. The factory pickup was great. It sure is a nice car. Thanks for the help from this board!
  10. Thanks. My part number is listed as 980 637 244 01 There is no code on keyfob itself unless it opens up somehow.
  11. Looking to buy one of these either from Carnewal or ebay. Any thoughts on the part number to confirm I am getting a UK appropriate one? THere are two alarm frequencies apparently.
  12. They can be put on - see carnewal - not sure how hard it is.
  13. The French police are getting tougher on British speeders at present. 134mph on a highway was pretty aggressive though even for France.
  14. They are standard on the Turbo S and essentially you get them for free vs the old Turbo pricing. Agree that I would not have specced them as an option given the price.
  15. Thanks. Car will be primarily used for road driving although a bit of tracking/Nurburgring driving will be on the cards. Don't think the PCCB's will really suit a lot of tracking (even the new version). Sounds like the PSS9s could be of use. Will probably look to chip the car and add a better exhaust. Probably some interior upgrades. How does the PSS9 adjustment process work?
  16. Um, well thanks. Already regularly spend plenty of money on driver training. Not exactly the response I was looking for - not fair to assume that everybody buying a new Porsche is unable to drive it well. Thanks D_Man for your comments.
  17. With a new turbo on the way and lots of options for playing with things given Carnewal etc, I was keen to get thoughts from the board on the five key things they would change from a factory spec car. These can be functional or visual enhancements. Car is a 996 Turbo S manual with PCCB (version 2). Short shift. All advice appreciated.
  18. Lots. Suggest you do a search on this board or the other main ones to see the stories. Very well documented in the past.
  19. The Turbo S order guide for the US says that you can fit GT3 wheels at zero cost. Any thoughts on the difference if any other than looks between the two? How do they look on a turbo?
  20. That sounds a little more complex than replacing the tank, am I right?
  21. Title says it all. Is there any way to upgrade the fuel tank in a 996 TT to a larger size? Thanks, Jason!
  22. There is a TSB that states that the ducts are not to be used in the TT with ceramic brakes. Check the TSB about the ducts. Is that just a non-approval, or does the TSB mean there is a potential problem with using them? I read one of the TSB's which seemed a bit vague. Maybe I was looking at teh wrong one. Do you have a TSB number?
