  1. You can buy the belt tensioner plug with a length of cable attached from Porsche. Part # 996.612.991.10 or .00 depending on side. About 21.00 GBP, so probably around $25.00.
  2. The relay is on the panel in the driver side footwell (RHD). It has abgasklappen written on the top of it. Check this out.
  3. PET shows that up to 06-11-2016 the LEDs weren't handed, as PET shows one part number for both sides (7PP 919 238) which is now superceded to 7PP 919 238B. £6.06 GBP incl. VAT. I suspect the Touran part I listed is the same, as it just has a different number prefix.
  4. Might it be the same as used on the VW Toureg? tmp1.pdf tmp2.pdf
  5. They are all communication errors, as you have removed an element from the CAN bus. Ideally, you should code the PCM MMI out of the system on all the modules affected. Or live with the fault codes.
  6. L84A is Guards Red, and S1 is Savannah Beige. (But it looks like it needs a good clean!)
  7. The speedometer signal is taken from the ABS sensors.
  8. On 3.4 Tiptronics the reversing lights are controlled by the multifunction switch on the side of the ZF gearbox. Facelift 3.6s use a Mercedes box, and the reversing light switch is on the bottom of the selector lever.
  9. Most Porsche Centres will post out parts. I would try your local centre first. Failing that, try Type911.co.uk or Design911.co.uk.
  10. I have some info on the Motec dash somewhere for the 996 GT3 Cup, which I think might have been used in the early 997 Cup cars. Drop me a PM with your email address and I'll dig it out and pass it on.
  11. I hope you are well Chris, and nice to see you are still Boxstering. I can't help with your problem, but I'm intrigued by the vehicle in the background......
  12. I can't say if VCDS will read it, but to get in to the level control calibration, you have to enter the security code which you read out from Actual Values. I found the code changes every time you switch the ignition on and off, so you need to read it out and make a note of it before entering the calibration routine.
  13. I've heard of several folks who have had 996 head welding and repair by Suppliers of New and Reconditioned Cylinder Heads, Parts and Repairs across the UK MOTORCAST.COM Motorcast Components Ltd in Shrewsbury, Shropshire, is one of the uks leading automotive cylinder head suppliers. cylinder head repairs, extensive parts supply service, competitive prices and... with success. Not exactly local though......
  14. Probably the battery vent tube. They often get forgotten about when batteries are changed.
