  1. Nope. Sorry, hadn’t had a chance at the video. Sounds like a bearing but could be many things. In cases like that I like to use a stethoscope (like this Mechanic's Stethoscope WWW.HARBORFREIGHT.COM Mechanic's Stethoscope ) the one I got comes with a little funnel to help locate the noise.
  2. If oil level is ok my money is on the oil pressure valve spring. Had to do this on my 06 where the spring got tired and hence the pressure regulation was out of whack. Simple fix from that I recall.
  3. Disconnected the solenoid and never looked back! Put a cutoff rubber glove finger over the socket and plug if you’re worried about dirt and grime getting in there. Now enjoy the sound all the time.
  4. Sounds like your “radio on but no sound” is probably a sticky power relay for the amp. Try this out - when you first get in the car instead of on motion of key in and start turn the key to ignition on and wait. Does the sound come on after a few seconds? On the date, I don’t have a 997.1 anymore, but I recall that to be configured in the PCM. Dig through the menues...
  5. Hi GCB, what a bummer. Looks like you and your dealer looked at just about all intake issues (the AOS is related to intake as the vacuum in the oil filler came from there). So seems you have oxygen coming in. Maybe it's time to look at the other 2 items needed for an explosion - fuel and spark. I recently had an issue on my 997S where i had hesitation and engine stalling that turned out to be a coil that had come loose (both bolts that secure it to the head had literally fallen off the engine and the coil was bouncing around). While something like that is unlikely - you
  6. Thanks for all input. I replaced spark plugs and coils. When I did I found that the coil on the left middle cylinder was loose - both screws were missing. I guess that would explain the misfire ....
  7. Good advice from White987S. Personal opinion? Manual. The 2006 automatic is a traditional torque converter slush box - tiptronic yes, but still not the same. My commuter '08 Cayenne turbo has one of those and it leaves me disappointed and looking forward to driving the manual '06 997S every time.
  8. Here's a mystery to ponder. Today my wife drove the '06 997S Cab in the rain. After a couple of miles the CEL started blinking, the engine started running with much hesitation (going downhill at about 35 mph). Then CEL went on solid. She called me, we swapped cars and I drove the 997 home. Can't say that it felt much different. I read the codes - see attached images - with the durametric. There's: P0300: misfiring checksum error P0301: misfiring cylinder 1 P0302: misfiring cylinder 2 P0306: misfiring cylinder 6 P0300: misfiring checksum error P0302: misfiring cylinder 2 8035: left seat he
  9. Hi Tony, If you want to go with all new parts, check Sunset - a sponsor here. I snapped up a used set of mufflers and tips and bought the vacuum tube/switching pieces from Sunset. I did the install myself. Mufflers took me about an hour each without removing the bumper. 1. Lifted the rear with floorjack, put on jackstand, take off rear wheel (helps with the room needed to slide out muffler towards the front; I've been told it's doable with the wheel on, might be pushing it though) 2. Removed the 2 screws for the brace that comes down to hold the bumper in place (behind the rear wheel)
  10. Hi Sam, How did you manage to get exhaust button so cleanly into the console front? I was looking for a facia with the whole for the button cut out but that does not seem to exist. Did you make it yourself? How? Thanks, Jay
  11. Thanks Loren! Works like a charm. Shows you what one gets for looking at only the 1st level in the index (Headlights beam adjustment........................132). Of course 2 lines above it says "Headlights-> adjusting.............279,280). Well, goes to show that he who knows how to read has a clear advantage ... but to use the advantage you have to actually read ... Thanks again! Jay
  12. So I've searched and couldn't find anything on this. The left an right headlight on my 2006 911 S Cab aren't at the same level. It's bugging me. The left side is noticably lower than the right side - which seems to be set to a good distance but not too high such that it would blind others. I am wondering how to bring up the left side a notch or two to align with the right. The leveling function works on both lights (tested turn on lights, then ignition and see the beams dipping down and coming up on both sides). What gives? Is this a dealer programming job or is there a good old adjustment scr
  13. Maintainer is usually just a 'low power' trickle charger that does the job of keeping a battery charged. Maintainer and charger is usually a bigger power supply that is designed around charging a drained battery and that has an additional 'maintain' mode. If you don't plan on charging drained batteries, go with a decent maintainer.
  14. Hi Mat, I've gone from the 40th Anniversary 911 #306 to a 2006 Carrera S Cab two years ago. In terms of differences, the 40th Anniversary had a real nice sound upwards of 6000 RPM - you lose that. The S is a little bit more torquy in return. Straight line performance, I think it's a toss up. The biggest difference that I liked is the increased comfort from the PASM suspension if you decide you don't need to be in Sport mode (vs. the 40th Anniversay sport suspension) and as you say the interior is much more up to date. On the handling, not sure I really feel there is such a quantum leap - the
  15. Hi, looking to see if someone can help with updating the firmware on my mobridge ABT2010. The mobridge website has some instructions but I can't get their update wizard to talk via bluetooth to my mobridge. So I am attempting to use the SD route instead. However they have 2 firmware files - one for a gen 1 and one for a gen 2. Now I believe this refers to generation of mobridge device. Does anybody know how to tell if my mobridge is a gen 1 or gen 2? Anybody have some experience with how to make this work reliably? I've put the correct config file on the SD card (generated via the wizard) and
