6ta1 replied to Eric (Plug Guy)'s topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)thanks for this post. just fixed my hinge and was wondering how to put back the spring. Note that the original hinge 996-201-063-00 has been superseded by 997-201-063-00 The 997 design is much sturdier
6ta1 replied to 6ta1's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)well, I would like this for sure - means a less expensive fix and a good reason to go with a LWFW. Shouldn't the noise disappear as I accelerate even in first gear? Thanks for the feedback!
6ta1 replied to 6ta1's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Thanks for your reply. I had not thought about this. I am the 3rd owner so hard to tell if the FW is stock or not. What would be the reasoning for the knocking to be only in first gear though?
6ta1 posted a topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Hi! this is my first post here as I have owned my first Porsche for less than a week... and I already have an issue! My transmission (std 6spd) is making a loud noise in first gear. When I drive I can here the noise only if I accelerate, but as you can see in the video, it happens also at idle. No noise in any other gear or if I press the clutch Any idea on what this could be? And how to fix? To be noted: previous owner had the transmission rebuilt recently to fix the 2nd gear issue however car was already making the noise before the rebuild it is currently filled with non-synthetic 75W90 (not sure of brand) -> should I try to use a 75W140? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ohHYATUCC3E&feature=youtu.be Thanks for the feedback!
