    2000 996 Cabriolet
  1. Great idea! The black, square pads, put pressure on my Techart side skirts, which I never liked. I'd like to implement your pin setup. Can you tell me where to buy the pin and what size of spring you used? Is that a plastic washer too? Thanks!
  2. I just happened to replace the "tension roller" (bearing) last week. When I ordered it, Suncoast confirmed the 996 part is superseded by 997.102.117.00 -- cost $89.05.
  3. Purchased both part numbers below from Suncoast. Unfortunately, neither is correct/corresponds to the part needed in photo above. Fortunately, they're allowing me to return the parts. I'm going to follow up with Suncoast again, see if we can nail this down. Not Correct 986-501-815-00-GRV 996-501-815-02-GRV
  4. I managed to bugger up this horseshoe-like part that provides resistance when screwing in the hard line to the stainless steel brake hose. Is this part an off-the-shelf item at an auto part store? Or will it be a Porsche only part? Thanks for the help.
  5. Thanks for telling us about Jehnert. The rear doorboards are exactly what I've been looking for! I have 6.5" MB Quart mid-range speakers that have been sitting in my garage for two years. Galaxy S, Xoom.... you're not a fan of Android, are you? LOL. (Me too! Java Developer) Have you heard about Torque OBD 2? http://torque-bhp.com/software/torque-android-obd2-adapters/ (I have no affiliation with this product.) Could be a nice addition to your teched-out car. - Doug BTW, here's a link to my DIY sound system install: http://dougturner.dyndns-ip.com/porsche/sound_system_2009/
  6. Just had a "duh" moment. Didn't realize that photo was shot from the engine side. Thanks the hand holding! LOL
  7. Thanks very much Loren. BTW, just donated. EDIT : Is the photo you posted for a 996 or a Boxster? I removed the six T40 torx-headed bolts and moved the passenger rollbar assembly to expose the area beneath it. The relay carrier is not there! This has turned into the case of the missing relay carrier. Where else could it be? The car is a 2000 996 C2 Cab. Thx.
  8. Can anyone help me locate the relay carrier #2 that holds the relay for the engine compartment fan? From the research I've done here and other forums, the location for a cabriolet is NOT the same as a coupe. Attached is a photo taken of the area behind the rear seat backs. Thx in advance. - Doug
  9. Here are some of my photos of an install I did last year. It may give you some ideas on routing wires, etc. My DIY Sound System Install
  10. Thank you Loren. I know, I'm due for a membership. :) Unfortunately, my transmitter may fall into the "less than .000001%" of the cases, since a multimeter proves voltage is full on the new battery, yet after replacing it, the LED is still lit.
  11. Unfortunately, after replacing the battery, the LED is still solid red. The microswitch is NOT stuck in the down or on position. When pressing it, one can hear the distinct "clicking" of the switch. Any other advice? Currently I'm physically unlocking the driver side door with the key. Once I'm inside the car, and close the door, I hear the door locks actuate, and a solid red light appears on the door switch in the middle console. I've never experienced that before. I use the switch to lock and unlock the doors, and the red light on the switch turns off. Sounds like I need a new pcb board in the key?
