  1. They're pretty cheap to begin with, when we're talking about 40$ for the fronts and like $100 for the rears, it's really not worth the effort at that point m8.
  2. I need to do my wheel bearings as they're starting to howl despite having no play. Since they're a fairly cheap part, I might as well do all of em at once. Am curious as to whether anyone has opinions or rather facts on the quality of the bearing manufacturers: F A G, NTN or SKF. All are OEM suppliers. All have been around for over 100 years and all are well known. Are there any design differences that would make one more durable than the other? EDIT: The site automatically blocks out the word F A G. It's the name of the bearing manufacturer in this case and not the insult lol. Any chance a mod could override that incase people want to search for a similar issue in the future? We're all grow-ups here afterall :).
  3. Does anyone know how many amps the mini blade fuse that is plugged into the side of the alarm control unit found under the driver's seat of the 996 is supposed to be. I found a 15 Amp in there but was told that there should be a 7.5 Amp in there. Looking for clarification. Cheers
  4. Those are the factory spec sizes - but you could easily go 235/40/18 and 295/30/18. Or, use the wider Mk2 wheels (8.5" front and 11" rear). didn't know i could get 235's on there without rubbing. will have to do that next time. i'm sure it would help neutralize the steering.
  5. hmm...knock on wood that my wheel guy has em. I think they would though, they're made by BBS so if you have a 2/3piece bbs wheel, you would use the same studs. Can you confirm that 225/40/18 front and 285/30/18 is the right tire size? some tire manufacturers have a 285/35/18 as well.
  6. As the title says, i have the 2 piece 996 sport design wheels and am missing one of the little studs that holds the wheel together. Can someone please provide a part number as well as the torque spec for the bolt? does it have to be loctited? If it fell out during use, am I better off just taking the wheel to a good repair shop and having them re/re and reseal the wheel to make sure everything is up to snuff on it? thanks.
  7. yep. rennlist.com has a very active toronto member base as well and is a good place to post if you want to get in on some meets/drives/track days. renntech is the place to go for technical answers, DIY stuff and part#'s.
  8. I broke the lever on my sport seat (the one on the side that lets you raise and lower the seat). Can they be ordered without replacing the whole seat? my PET only shows seat complete.
  9. thanks loren. i'll look into the feasability of drilling a spot for it thru the rebar.
  10. So it turns out that my front bumper is a supercup front bumper which explains why it has the tow hook slot. i'm not sure if supercups have the bumper support bar, but it seems that this bar is right infront of the tow hook slat, so i'll have to cut thru it to secure the tow hook? Does someone have a diagram or install directions from a supercup to show where it should be secured to? TY
  11. Loren et all, do you have the part number for this part and a price? Can it be ordered from dealers or PMNA only? Thanks
  12. Don't tell insurence anything, it's just an intake, 99.9999% of the time this is a non-issue, especially on highend cars. They're really more worried about canning insurence policies of 19 year olds with honda civics with NOSed Type R motors that are gutted and caged with slicks. As for the change in the driving, if it feels good, do it. Its a bit late over here but i'll post up some more on the intake after dinner or 2morrow morning.
  13. how big can i go with the doors/dash pods/rear pods without having to do some major work? 5.25" doors? 1" tweeters and 4" drivers for the pods?
  14. Tonger, did 99's even come with a footwell sub or any sub at all? i have the same Hi-Fi option with DSP in my car but there's no subwoofer unless i overlooked something...or it has the worlds greatest stealth device. Can you post a pic up please?
  15. hmmm...the thing is tho..this plug was only on the right side (passenger side). the driver's side didn't ahve this on the harness. If this two wire connector is only on the passenger's (right) side, is it possible you are referring to the connector for enabling/disabling the airbag for carrying a child seat in the passenger seat? Do the wires and the plug look like those circled in red in this photo?: Regards, Maurice. bingo. thanks man. ok so it does nothing at all in my case woo hoo
  16. hmmm...the thing is tho..this plug was only on the right side (passenger side). the driver's side didn't ahve this on the harness.
  17. thanks loren, how do i read that diagram? left side is on the harness side, right side is what is on the seat?
  18. yeah i'm positive. my car never had memory seats, always sport seats, which is what the new seats are too. i suppose the most obvious way for me to find out what that plug does is to reconnect my ehated seat buttons and just turn them on and see if the seats heat up.
  19. car had factory heated seats before i took them out for sport seats. donor car is a turbo i think. they should be the exact same seats as the ones i removes (sport, heated with crest). i will take a pic of the connector and send you.
  20. I got a set of heated seats from a 6speedonline member, and when re-installing them, i noticed that in addition to the main harness, there was a smaller connector with two pins on it, looked almost like a power connector or something. It was really short and didn't have enough room to make it upto the seat, also there was no place to connect it on the seat. Does anyone know what it is there for? I didn't pull out the seat originally so i'm not sure what it could have been used for.
  21. so what should i do then? just take off the pollen filter and the flaps covering the hole to the HVAC, reach down and start grabbing around?
  22. As the title says, I'd like to diagnose the noise/vibration but my shop manuals don't come with directions for this.
  23. good idea. my pollen filter is so dirty that i'm sure everyone whose sat in my car now has bronchitis. couldn't hurt to change that out too lol..i dont tink i'ts been changed since the car was new
