  1. Thank You Ahsai. I will have the car towed to Porsche and will pass along your suggestion.
  2. Thanks Loren. I hope that you're doing well! There is no 3rd party equipment that I know of. The weirdest thing is that buzzing sound from the trunk hood next to the spoiler. The car also allegedly has a broken convertible top alarm sensor that causes the alarm to go off by itself occasionally when the car is parked. That was another $1,000 so I decided to live with the occasional alarm. Thank YOU for your advise Loren! I will pass it along. Alex
  3. 2000 Carrera, cabriolet, tiptronic here's the summary of my situation so far: 'check engine light' came on, took car to dealer code reader indicated that the 'camshaft adjuster,? needed to be replaced, $2,900 including the 85 k service items drove the car home, next day battery totally drained. Used trickle charger over the weekend in order to take back to the dealer new battery installed, then the generator started overcharging, the battery needle hitting 15 when NOT idling was told to drive it a couple of days to see if the computer would notice the new battery, instead the 'check engine' came BACK! dealer now plans to install a new generator/alternator on Monday..., that'll be another $1,000 TODAY battery totally drained AGAIN, when I plugged the car to the trickle charger the lights started flickering and there was a buzzing noise from the trunk hood next to the spoiler, I don't know what resides there now car will have to be towed to Porsche to see if they can figure out why the battery keeps draining. I'm NOT convinced that I need a new generator/alternator. Obviously I'm at wit's end, if ANYBODY has any theories or is familiar with this situation I would love to hear from you! Alex
  4. Hi,

    I saw an old post of yours about performing the amberectomy procedure. I also have 2000 C2 Cab Tip (green) and would like to do this mod. Did you wind up doing it? If so, any tips you can pass along?



  5. Congratulations! Barry, the MY03 is pretty close, I have a MY2000 996 as well, we have different trunk/engine compartment release levers, we don't have a glove box. You can pick up an MY2000 replacement manual for $27.95 here at Suncoast: http://e-partssales.com/Merchant2/merchant...Code=CARMANUALS The audio manual is usually separate from the owner's manual. Get some picks so members can see what audio equipment you have and advise you accordingly. You can download the Porsche Parts Catalogue here: https://techinfo.porsche.com/techinfo/index.jsp Just navigate USA>Catalogue>Catalogue>Scroll to your model. It's really useful to find out part numbers before calling vendors. There is nothing like a Porsche™ Regards, Alex
  6. Hi Andy, A battery maintainer works well, don't know about a car with 2 batteries, I use mine on a 996. Info about them here: http://www.renntech.org/forums/index.php?s...st&p=132371 Best regards, Alex
  7. Meguiars has 1000, 2000, even 3000 grit finishing papers: Also a 2000 grit sanding block: HiTech Finesse Sanding Blocks Item # SAND 2000 http://www.meguiarsdirect.com/index.asp
  8. Hey thanks very much jhbrennan! Seems that this should be in every Porsche™ fitment tray :D if it avoids having to get the radio code and find the emergency release wires to open the front trunk, as well as resetting the windows.
  9. So would a 'maintainer' work as well as the 9-volt cigarette lighter adapter? Can someone post the actual name of this '9-volt cigarette lighter..." thingamajig? Thanks, Alex
  10. Suncoast Porsche sells the cigarette lighter upgrade: http://e-partssales.com/Merchant2/merchant..._Code=POTE996CM It solves the problem of items popping off. Alex
  11. :welcome: Brian, Do you have the manual? I believe page 154 covers 'Hardtops'. • Obviously you need 2 persons to install/remove it. • The 2 round plastic covers in the back, where the hardtop goes and the plastic area around them are easily scratched so be careful pulling them out with the special tool. You can download a PDF version of the 996 manual here: http://www.renntech.org/forums/index.php?a...mp;showfile=601 Best regards, Alex
  12. There is a post about 996 steering wheels here: http://www.renntech.org/forums/index.php?s...st&p=131125 986 wheel removal DIY here: http://www.renntech.org/forums/index.php?s...st&p=109073 Regards, Alex
  13. There's a thread here about coolant mixing: http://www.renntech.org/forums/index.php?s...post&p=7151
