A friend of mine has a Boxster with a 2.7 That the IMS bearing went, all he can find is a 3.6 engine out of a 997, will this work and what will he need to do this changeover. Would you suggest doing the IMS bearing retrofit on this engine? Thanks
scubadawg posted a topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)I just got my front and rear OEM pads from Suncoast the other day, the fronts installed no problem, but when I look at the old rear pads and the new ones, they are different, they have the extra weights like the front pads, did I get sent the wrong set of pads. Will the rear pads install OK with the extra weights in the way? Thanks
scubadawg posted a topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Porsche dealer did a CPO on my Porsche Oct 2007 They did the RMS seal, is this the latest version of the RMS seal or did Porsche do another change, after this date? Thanks
I didn't buy it yet, my turn signal switch failed 2 weeks before I parked my car for winter, but I will be purchasing from Suncoast Porsche along with a couple of other items that have to be OEM Porsche, at the end of March, I usually bring out the Pcar out of hibernation Easter time. You can also check Sunset Porsche since they are a sponsor here on Rennlist. I dealt with Suncoast since on the 6speedonline forum. Also you can post your used switch assembly for sale, because someone will buy it to use the 4th stalk for the OBC. I have a purchaser that contacted me for mine as soon as I change it out. I would not buy a used one, no telling how long it will last. Mines a 2002 with 60k so a new one last you awhile. I would stay with OEM
I have the same problem, yup is a complete new switch assembly. :(
I have an aftermarket, and thinking of velcroing mine on the left side of the dash just to the right on the drivers vent. Then you can tap in with an add a fuse just below in the fuse box
scubadawg replied to 996guest's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Check this thread out http://www.6speedonline.com/forums/996/195...teaser-pic.html I think TPC, is going to make one also.
I purchased a Optima red top in May of this year, and it has been giving me problems of not holding a charge, bought it into Interstate to have charged and checked, and they said it was good, nothing wrong with it, parked the can on Sun, tried to started it tonight (Thurs) Totally dead, anyone else have issues with Optima batteries, or draining a battery dead after 4 days? Thanks
scubadawg replied to scubadawg's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Hi Loren I did a search and I guess you do have to replace the whole unit, I wish they had a rebuild kit for these :( I believe the part number for this is 996 613 219 10 EWC since this has cuise and OBC I will be parking my car for winter in the next couple of weeks, so even if I order the parts now, won't be here for about 10 days, being up in the great white north, so I'll just wait until end of March to order the part. Just wonder if, the boxer people who want to use the 4 stalk can Cannibalize the stalk for their OBC? I would hate to see this get tossed in the garbage, because of broken parts on the turn signal mechanism. Thanks
scubadawg posted a topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)The problem I have is when I use the right turn signal, it will not click in place, so I have to hold in place while I signal, left side works normally and everything else works highbeams etc. What is the part that I need to replace? The car is a 2002 Carrera C2, 4 stalks, cruise etc. Thanks
Tested the 8 prong plug in the door, tested OK, we took the power window motor apart, and tested the motor part, tested OK, motor went clockwise and counterclockwise, next with gave the part with the electronics a rap with the screwdriver, just in case it was a stuck relay or switch inside, put it back together and evertyhting is working OK, :renntech: Thanks for the advise and help !!!
Thanks for the info. if the door microswitch is faulty would it lock the motor in a single one way postion when the motor is out of the regulator, I am suspecting a microswitch problem, but why won't the windows switch work either, I'm going to see if if is possible to turn the regulator manually, to drop the window a bit and reattached the motor and see what happens. Is there a way to reverse the direction of the motor?
Scuba: I seem to remember that the motor needs to encounter resistance for it to spin in the opposite direction. I'm not positive, but unless I'm thinking of something else, that's the way it works. :lightbulb: Maybe someone else can pipe in with the correct answer. Now that you know that both switches work, why not try to spin the regulator with the motor installed on the regulator? That should provide the answer as to whether the "drag" or resistance is what is needed for the motor to spin in the opposite direction. I guess the good news about all of this is that it gets a LOT easier to take the door panel after you have done it a few times. Have you inspected the length of the regulator cable to see it it's intact or if it is frayed, and whether it's stretched or if some of the sleeves through which it passes are broken, etc...? Regards, Maurice. Does anyone have the pinout for the connector to the motor so I can test the motor out? I believe the motor should have 2 windings, one winding with make the motor go clockwise and the other wining should make the moter go counterclockwise. Thanks
Scuba: From your further description, it sounds like your window regulator cable is completely broken. That is why you are not getting any response at all, other than the clicking caused by pressing the switch. I would still try to swap the switches left for right, first though. Regards, Maurice. Took the door panel off today, pulled the motor off the regulator, leaving the regulator mounted, tried the windows switch (both left and right switches) the window motor only spins 1 way, is this right? I would think that the motor would spin both directions, believing the motor is shot, not the regulator. What do you think?
