judgejon replied to IslaTurbine's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Ps: are you on Isla, or really like the whiskys? Caol Ila? Lagavulin? Etc?
judgejon replied to IslaTurbine's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Could this be a seat belt connector fault? change over to buckles with gold connectors? consider clearing with a Durametric. Many own them just for this recurring issue. Good luck. .
judgejon replied to Alex Chardy's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Why do you need tires bryond the spec unless you are racing auto-cross or at Laguna or Infinion. Otherwise, stick with stock tire sizes as noted on inside of filler flap. IMHO. Unless,of course, you just like the look. I get that 110%. Cheers,
judgejon replied to Alex Chardy's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)What year? C2 or C4$? All season or summer tires? my C4$ ran 295/30 stock for summers. Check tire size on chart on inside of filler flap.
Welcome to the forum. Yes, you are certainly right. But you can still go 125 mph and know you could go faster. And do curves too. The keys likely have to be coded by your local stealership and not for cheap. Enjoy. It’s truly an earned pleasure.
Search engine will quickly become your good friend.
No, don’t wait. Guaranteed that you will sleep better at night and feel better at speed on the highway.
Amp in front in spare tire well? Factory set up or after market? check wiring at back of Becker 23 in dash as well? Maybe pull footwell panels to look. If not loose wires, likely a transistor or component in the amp unit
judgejon replied to thormann's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)the tire shop I have used for my C4$ places 2 hydraulic jacks at front, and then at rear. Its really fast. the jacks are usually in place when I turn around to look after getting out of the car. I think the points are under the shocks. Porsche was famous for the side lift jack. back in the day there was a special tool that fit in the jack placement fittings that allowed a standard garage jack to be used to lift the side of the car. most German car garages had one or two on hand. I bought one and kept it with the car.
judgejon replied to esymonds's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)lots of information about this on the search engine. the search engine is a good friend. check this out and good luck:
Hey Red, Long time no see. thought it was the light connector. My inde relies on me to remember to plug it back in. Cheers, j
I think this is for either the third brake light in the spoiler, or more likely the engine compartment light. The spoiler light is only activated when the spoiler is in the raised position. The engine compartment light should come on when lid is open. Alternatively, it could be the emergency speed brake parachute release connector. Chute deploys at hard braking from above 145mph.
judgejon replied to Westie's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Ok, smog check VW style emissions checker cheater plug? still could be drag chute factory option 😁
judgejon replied to Westie's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Factory option speed-brake parachute release.
judgejon replied to mjbiegs's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Ps: filler flap is only locked when car is locked. Otherwise just push on right side of flap to open. There is no push and release type latch like on Bmw.
