dsteinaz posted a topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Are all C4S models widebodies? I see them advertised and some owners point out widebody and some dont. I love the rear view of the 02-05 C4S with the light going all the way across on the wide frame.
The paint/coating at the base of the emergency brake in my 2001 C2 Cab is scratched and I was wondering if there is a good touch-up or do I need to buy a new brake? It seems like the coating is rubberized.
I think you need a new ignition switch. If its not under warranty, you can buy the part on line for $30. Its the same switch as the Audis. The install takes about 15 minutes but you need to be a contortionist so you might want to let a mechanic do it. There are specific instructions on this website.
dsteinaz posted a topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)I have a 2001 C2 Cab with stock exhaust tips. I want larger oval tips that will better fill the bumper cutout without looking strange. How wide a diameter can I go on new tips? I looked at the Schnell and Dansk Ovals, are they bigger than my stock tips (996 111 251 55) and does anyone have preferences?
dsteinaz replied to JimPDX's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)I personally dont know anyone who refuses to park in a public or private garage. I completely understand staying away from tight spaces and parking away from the fray. Certainly , I also understand not letting that 18 year old valet park your car. But how do you go to business meetings, ballgames, cultural events etc. without parking in a public or private garage?
dsteinaz replied to JimPDX's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Yes
Any suggestions for touching up a silver hood release latch without disassembling the whole unit. Ive noticed many latches are scuffed up even in newer model 996's.
dsteinaz replied to dsteinaz's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Loren, Its great that you have DIY's for almost everything but when I see terms like Bowden Cables, Actuating Levers, and Disengaging the spring from the sill I get intimidated. Is there a glossary of terms or do I just need more mechanical experience? Thanks, Dean
Is there an easy way to remove the hood and trunk release latches without taking out the whole unit so I can repaint them? My silver latches are all marked up in my 99 C2 Cab. Also, any painting tips would be appreciated.
dsteinaz replied to dsteinaz's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)I would really appreciate it if you would film the oil change. I would be happy to reimburse expenses if you would make a video and send it to me (especially if you would verbally explain the steps). I saw the pictures on the DIY site. Thanks, Dean
dsteinaz posted a topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Is there a video available for DIY oil change for a 996? Do you think that a guy who is not mechanically inclined can do it or should I bite the bullet and bring it to the dealer for $200?
