  1. Hey Loren, I have an '03 996 C2. After driving, my voltage read 13.43 VDC at the battery terminals. Would it be the battery, voltage regulator, or alternator? The battery is a couple months shy of 2 years old. I am going to get my battery load tested today or this week. Is it possible to have a battery on a battery maintainer (Porsche) too much? Are you having problems with slow cranking speeds or starting issues? A few 10th/volt low is nothing to be worry about unless you have other issues. I seem to be having some slow cranking speeds and the start does not sound right all of the time. TIA Regards, Paul :renntech:
  2. I performed a test. The battery maintainer automatically shut off. Drove the car for an hour and made 2 stops. Returned home. Made sure that everything was off and measured the voltage at the battery terminals. It measured 13.43 VDC at idle. I am going to get the battery load tested next weekend. What would be considered a normal current draw? I'll have to measure the current and isolate the circuit that has a large draw, if one is found. TIA Regards, Paul :renntech:

  4. Hello All, What is the color code for the Standard Wheel Paint (Silver) for a MY03 Porsche 996 Carrera 2? Is there a equivalent code from Duplicolor? I need to get a little touch-up paint. Thanks in advance. Regards, Paul :renntech:
  5. Thanks Loren and Sboxin for the replies. I'll review the DIY article. Kind Regards, Paul :renntech:
  6. Hello all, After having a great day watching the Petite LeMans at Road Atlanta I had an unfortunate incident. I unfortunately hit a "road gator" (retread truck tire) after it was hit by another car ahead of me and displaced into my lane. The outside of my car is OK, the bra got marred, but underneath is a different story. The Wheel Housing liner is damaged, the brake cooling duct is damaged, and the center cover is damaged! :( I think that I can change out the other parts fairly easy. The Wheel Housing Liner, however, looks to be a different story. Has anyone ever changed one of these? If so, does it require the front bumper to be removed? Any advice in this matter is highly appreciated. Paul 2003 996 C2 :help:
  7. My battery died today. Thanks Loren for having such a great resource!!! I know that it is a old thread but there are probably others getting into the same situation. Paul My DuraLast 48-DL was $79.99 at Auto Zone, the DieHard International Group 48 was $119.99 at Sears. Thanks again! :renntech: :cheers: :drive:
  8. I found that the other night, looking for some torque specs. Need to get whatever you can from there before they discover the open access! :)
  9. Does anyone know the torque spec for the 4 bolts that attaches the throttle body to the Plenum? I have a 2003 996 Carrera 2, 3.6L Thanks in advance, Paul :rolleyes:
  10. Thanks Loren, I am new to this forum and haven't explored all of the areas yet. Thank you for the prompt answer. :cheers:
  11. :( I have Carrera 2 wheels and managed to get a scratch on the wheel near the valve stem. What would be a good product to use for fixing that? Will the Wurth products work well?
