  1. I would reset the airbag light first; drive around the block, and see if it returns. Might save $$$$$ Remember; the fault code is an end result; just because it lists the module as the "Fix" doesn't mean it's the original problem. Pete993
  2. I agree with Pierre; a large expense with little benefit.
  3. Either side. All you have to do is is be able to measure the play in the Turbine Shaft.
  4. Whichever side is the easiest to get to. Look for Oil ans excessive play in the Shaft.
  5. If it's a little oil, that's normal. If there is major oil, it's a bad Turbo.
  6. Remove the coolant resovoir and inspect the bottom. They crack and sometimes won't show up with pressure test. Replace it
  7. No doubt; you have to have the system scanned with proper program. If any part was disconnected, the fault will stay.
  8. Probably a cracked reservoir, needs to be replaced. I have done 5: not uncommon failure
  9. Excessive gear rattle, and harsh engagment would be 2 of my reasons.
  10. Welcome to the "Crowd" I started working for the Dealership when were still selling 356's Been to every Factory School from 356-991 Boy; am I Old or what! Pete
  11. You have to take it to a Porsche dealer, and bring all the paperwork. Good Luck
  12. 7.8 quarts are needed for initial filling. This is from the 996TT workshop manual. I would drain the engine and refill slowly.
  13. I would recommend the Durametric Pro system. Their support is very good. I have been using Durametric for about 5 years, with no problems.
  14. Retrofitted to WHAT! Think about it; the problem wasn't there before your "Retrofit" Hello! Take a look!
