  1. Loren or any one else, Does anybody have a schematic of the air injection system. Also, can anyone explain to me the relation between the air injection system and diverter vavles? :huh: Thanks Sameer
  2. I had one on my 996TT but don't use it anymore. Everytime I wanted to change oil, it was a real hassel to get it off and on again. Regards Sameer
  3. I tried to slide the forward horizontal pin out but couldn't get a good grasp on it with the pliers. Eventually, I just took out all 10 or 15 tiny screws on the underside of the lid when I put in my arctic silver covers. Good luck :cheers: Sameer
  4. I just did this and would REALLY recommend the 24mm socket instead of the wrench. The socket stays on the head and allows you to exert force without worries. The wrench sometimes slips off (the 24mm nut head is narrow) and you could hurt your fingers or "round off" the 24mm nut head edges. Is this essentially the same procedure for the 996TT? Thanks Sameer
  5. I recently removed my door panel to fix a rattle... there are about 3-4 torx screws in the door handle and near the door pull. the door pull needs to be popped in half to get to two of the screws. There is also another screw hiding behind the "airbag" medallion. use a prybar to pry off the plastic "push rivets" at the lower margin of the door. Finally, slide the door panel backward and lift up. Hope this helps. Sameer
  6. try Sunset or Ebay, and the dental floss..... S007
  7. cool. what are the rest of the cars?- looks like a Viper, a tow truck and a Plymouth Road runner?
  8. Did a search but need a little more info.... Just got new alu- look door storage lids and want to install them myself. I popped off the handles to change to alu but am not sure how to get the door lid off- I see a pin at one end of the inside hinge. Do I just pull the pin out? Having trouble grasping onto the pin. Any thoughts would be appreciated. Sameer
  9. The dealer is Steven's Creek Porsche in San Jose. I was told Tool Pants on babblers.org that you have a lot of experience with this, done about 100 installs and even have a CD. How would I get/buy this? Is it really as easy to install as everyone is saying? And lastly, are there any warranty implications if you DIY? Thanks. I just did mine this week. Although I have heard it takes 1 hr, it really took me about 2.5hrs...either way, it was not that hard and really is a DIY type of thing. Good luck and go for it by yourself. Sameer
  10. Figured it out. The contact point inside the bulb housing had a little carbon deposit on it. Cleaned it off and it works just fine :jump: Special thanks to Nick49, RobCBR, Loren and the entire Renntech community :clapping: Sameer
  11. Take a look at this link: http://www.imagineauto.com/tips1.htm It is the step-by-step install guide from imagineauto.com. Hope this helps. Sameer
  12. I've got a volt meter- how do I know which wire is which? Thanks Sameer
  13. I feel kind of silly asking, but I'm stumped!.... 2001 996 TT, 32K miles... Left front turn signal light not working. Rear OK and right side ok. When you hit the turn signal lever to the left, the green indicator light blinks superfast comparted to the properly working right side. Went to the dealer and picked up a new bulb thinking the bulb must just be out. Changed the bulb (old buld looked fine- no obvious burn out) with a new one and still not working! Checked a few fuses but everything looks ok. Am I missing something? Is there a relay or something else that could be causing
  14. Loren or any other Expert, I checked both fuses and they were ok. Additionally I replace the switch and it still does not work. I read in another thread that the seat heating element may be at fault. Any idea how I can test this or even repair it? Thanks Sameer
  15. Thought I'd ask the experts.... 20001 996TT, driver's side heated seat not heating. Switch flashes red when pushed but does not stay red and does not heat seat. Passenger side working fine. Already checked the fuse which was fine. I was going to try and replace the switch as my next move. Sound like a reasonable approach? Anybody know the part number? Thanks in advance, Sameer
  16. I have a 2001 996TT- no mods-yet. I had noticed some poor mileage- in the range of 15 mpg combined. I cleaned the MAF filter and after that my mileage improved to about 17-22 mpg depending on driving conditions. Try cleaning the MAF sensor and maybe put in a new airfilter....best of luck. Sameer
  17. Wow :eek: , those look seriously strong! How much to they weigh? Good job, I'm going to try this but my only concern is where to store such big ramps! :D Sameer
  18. You'll need a special oil change tool, availabe on line or at your Dealer as well a metric socket set, but other than that, it is pretty staight forward. I changed the oil on my 996TT a few months ago and the instructions in the DIY section were very helpful. Good luck Sameer
  19. Ramps are nice but not critical. All you need is a philllips screw driver. The screws are located in the wheel wells- just turn the steering wheel for better access to the wheel wells. Remove the screws on each side, remove the old lip spoiler and screw in the new spoiler....couldn't be easier! :cheers: Sameer
  20. Just curious, when you dump the cats, what do you do when you have to get your car smog checked? :)
  21. Pidgeon crashed through the windshield?- wow! :eek:
  22. Well Gents, Thanks to RennTech, I jumped through the oil change hoop! Believe it or not, the hardest part was removing the aftermarket metal plate below the engine compartment! :cursing: Everything else was down-hill from there. :clapping: As an aside, to the other newbies considering this DIY, the oil tank plug is on the right side of the car, just behind the rear axel; it's a little hard to orient one's self with the diagram from the DIY section. Thanks again to RennTech and all those who have contributed to the various sections. :cheers: Sameer
  23. OK assuming the small 0 ring is in good shape I will try and reuse it but where does the second aluminum ring go?
  24. Hello Gents, I'm getting the parts together for my first DIY oil change on my 2001 996 TT and have a question. I read the parts list from the DIY section and purchased at my local dealer, Pacific Porsche in Torrance CA the following oil filter 996-107-225-53 copper ring 900-123-010-20 aluminum ring 900-123-118-30 they didn't have the small o-ring 999-707-465-40 but instead gave me another alum ring 900-123-106-30 saying this was all that was needed. Is this correct? :drive: Or should I go out of my way to get the small o- ring and not use the second alum ring. Thanks in advanc
  25. no pics but I routinely put my 3 yr olds car seat in my 996 coupe- it even has the anchor for the car seat strap hook! :)
