  1. I am having trouble accessing the 996TT TSBs, I am a contributing member, can you check my status?  Thanks

  2. Just happened again after getting the car detailed and I remember it happened last time after I got it washed, so intermittent, but seems to be related to when the car gets water on it.
  3. Funny, the codes just came back for the first time in 5yrs (looking at my old posts, had them cleared, let's hope for another 5yrs
  4. Thank for this post, just used the TSB, not obvious how to get the grommet out
  5. Just completed this DIY today. Many thanks to Loren and SCB71. I am a newbie to working on cars. So far in my 996 TT I have replaced/fixed/installed - headlight washer unit, hardwire radar detector, clear sidemarkers, sanded headlights and added x-pel protection, and changed most of the bulbs. The info/photos were great and easy to follow. I would only add that the screws that hold the switch are tiny flathead screws that only need the smallest amount of torque to loosen. I bought my part at NAPA and other than buying another set of TORX screwdrivers this DIY was done for less than $20. Thanks again and I love Renntech!
  6. March 12th, still no codes, hopefully I haven't just jinxed myself....
  7. Did you know, there is a couple of TSB's on this subject. #6028 tilting/sliding roof noises, and a second one also #6028 Noises from the new style sunroof frame. Thanks for the suggestions, I'll take a look at those TSB's again
  8. Dude, I am in the same boat, also have 2003 Turbo Coupe, the bar under the headliner continues to rattle driving me crazy, I was told it is a multi hour project to remove all the interior parts to get to the bar so I have been just dealing with it, I share the pain, but even with all that I love TT, even in 12" of snow!
  9. Thanks, if I get the codes again, I'll post here, reading up on it, seems like a non-essential part of the car, heats up the catalytic converters, but if not working correctly it may not pass state inspection
  10. My car just had the same codes, p0491 and p0492. I had them cleared and they have not come back. The weather was extremely cold that day, but not sure if that had anything to do with it. I can post my full readouts if anyone cares. Just wondering if anyone else had the same experience. Thanks. --BM
  11. I'll post back here in 3 months and let you know how they are holding up 3 months later....all bulbs still good.... ;) hopefully won't burn out tomorrow
  12. Looking for some guidance on adding oil to my 2003 996TT. I had my last oil change 4,000 miles ago and after some heavy use recently I ran the oil check on a level surface and noticed that the oil indicator was one bar above halfway. Wanted some advice on: 1) Should I add more to take it to full? 2) Should I just add a little to get to say 3/4 full? 3) Should I add none just wait for another 1,000 and do an oil change? 4) None of the above :) Thanks. --BM
