  1. I’d try lubing the spinning shaft that’s up there under the seat. Sometimes can make a grinding noise. There’s a cover to pull off and then you can shoot silicone spray lube up in. there. There are pics on the forum. Check through the search engine. Good luck. Hope the mechanism itself it intact. Could be $$$.
  2. Look carefully at inside car body at right door front area. There is a plastic fuel release there. You can pull it to release fuel door. Or, if it’s broken off like mine was, you can hook fuel door release with a bent to fit wire coat hanger. I kept mine in right door pocket in arm rest. Hope this works for you.
  3. From my recollection, the funky plastic sunroof side pull down shades can come loose. They are not attached very well. Worth a check. I took mine out. I also remember a generic clunk that did not affect sunroof operation. Not as loud as yours though. Good luck.
  4. Right. Totally right. My light came on at weird moments, but always stayed off for long times. On longer road trips I had a partitioned MacBookAir with me just to clear the air bag just in case. Never had it happen though. My car had the gold contacts in the seat belts. If you do go to a dealership, bring your credit card. Good luck.
  5. can you just clear the code using the durametric? Its possible that the code just shows up as a "mysterious Porsche thing." Just clearing it is possibly ok. It might very well show up again in a few weeks, months, years. Check out this issue on the forum. some people have a durametric just to be able to clear the air bag light.
  6. totally agree +3. it's no extra effort to hold in clutch when starting. actually, its a good idea. I changed out clutch and brake switches regularly to avoid some of the issues noted on the forum. check it out on search engine. And its cheap insurance to keep a spare set of those switches in your tool kit. They are small and fit right in. Enjoy the ride. Have fun. Ps: what are you driving?
  7. Just like my CDR23. would simply not come on sometimes. Usually had to restart car. I think yours is a previous Becker radio. Consider replacement. And file this under "mysterious unsolved Porsche mysteries." Good luck.
  8. Factory x51 should be considered. Would likely require replacement trans and diff, etc, but horsepower would be good.
  9. It’s new engine time. Porsche had class action suit filed against them re ims issue. Too late to join in now. Consider x51 engine as replacement. Good luck.
  10. Do you have heated seats? If not, add circuit to seat heater fuse location. This is an un-switched fuse that is powered when engine is running. lots of info on forum. Search engine will be your friend.
  11. Exactly so. And it’s a retrofit I’ve never regretted and would highly recommend to all for peace of mind. Permanent Solution LNE seems best way to go.
  12. Good call, Jeff. It may already be too late. Good luck, mj..
  13. Did you say metal flakes? Don’t wait, do the IMS right away. You will have immediate peace of mind.
  14. I think we missed the festival this year. Otherwise, Lagavulin. Cheers , ps: eventually went with Red Line 10-40 in my 2003 C4$
  15. I haven't been to the forum for awhile now, but glad to see the possible restart of the old "oil wars." 10-40 might be a better consideration in colder weather, but 20-50 probably ok. I recall using Castrol in my SC. Are you heading to Islay for the festival? Cheers, jl
  16. never heard of that model. 911T, 911E, 911S all in early 70's. but, and this is a big but, it might be a 911S modified by Weissach, 911S-W, and if so it's likely a rocket car, and probably raced.
  17. use a silicon based lubricant, attracts less dust than WD40, etc. I had to replace the entire mechanism on my '79. good luck.
  18. Ps: are you on Isla, or really like the whiskys? Caol Ila? Lagavulin? Etc?
  19. 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. .
  20. 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,
  21. 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.
