Job is almost finished. While i was in there i pulled my battery tray and sanded it then i painted it. Rust is not good. Few questions, i noticed another blend door that was not accessible. I tried to put some tape on it. Ideas anyone? I cut off the top pivot point on the blend door i removed. What did you guys do to cover this part. I will try to finish up tomorrow and test this fix. 1999, 996.
I am working thru this problem also. I have the top work done, getting ready to do the servo arm. So far so good. Checking in from south east Texas btw.
carsareart replied to esymonds's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Mine has started throwing the code again, last time all I had to do was replace the gas cap, and keep it tight. Here we go again. It lasted almost 10 years with the last fix.
Cool, that is good to know. how does this pulley help the engine?
I was able to work mine out with out problems. It was tight but doable. Mine is a tip and I have a clutch type pulley. Is this normal?
royal purple for me too! I have had great luck with their products.
I have had no leaks, so far. where is some wood to knock on.... Is your leak coming from an overflow tube? It has been a while since I posted this so I can not remember if it has an over flow tube.
I too looked at a Max Jack. It was just a little too big for my space and garage. Some day if I build a house I will design a garage with enough space for a full size lift. I purchased a EzCar lift. So far it has done a great job for my needs.
I have really enjoyed using mine. So far it has saved money and time for me. I try to do as much as I can on my car. With the Durametric and the forums I can do most anything. Yes it is a little expensive but worth it.
Here are a few pictures.
Hey guys, I changed the diff fluid in my 99 tip. It was really pretty easy. I purchased a suction tool at Autozone and a quart of Royal Purple 75w90. I put her up and pulled the left rear tire off. I think the hex was a 8mm short. Pulled the drain/check bolt and sucked out as much fluid as I could then I pumped fluid untill it was at the same level as before-even with the drain. I spent a lot of time letting the fluid settle to make sure it was full. easy job.
The hardtop on my BMW sure makes the car much quieter. As long as my mounting points are correctly adjusted I have had no noise problems. My Porsche is a hardtop.
carsareart replied to valley996's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Wow, a lot of information here. I have one of the replacement engines in my car. I am at about 60k miles by my best guess. I purchased the car without records. Is this a problem I have to look forward to and can my engine be serviced with an aftermarket bearing? So far the car is doing well. I put about 7500 miles a year on it.
Today when I went to tilt my sunroof to a vent position the liner assembly did not tilt with the sunroof. Anyone have some direction on this problem. I looked between the sunroof and the liner with the roof tilted but was not too sure what I was seeing. I bet I have a broken clip or something like that. The sunroof will still open and close with out binding. I tried to search but had no luck, lots of rattles posted and that fix seems doable. How should I reattach my liner assembly to my sunroof? 99 C2 Tip, 137,000
carsareart replied to brianjw4's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Wow, that is really cool. I would like to see some pics from under the car. I thought we had some car guys on my block but my hat is off to you.
