  1. Congratulations AP997S. Just had my eyes on the 2014 Cayman S, I though it was a new 911 until I saw its rear. Beautiful Cayman! I used to hate the Cayman cause I owned the 996. But the new Cayman has changed my mind :D Time to get my Porsche back but this time will be the 2014 Cayman...but it will not happen until Summer 2014 when the last kid graduated :thumbup:
  2. I had the same problem with my 2000 C2 Cab a while back. What I did to fix it was to lubricate the contact points at each corner of the top and also their mating parts with silicone lube. Good luck.
  3. I have the same problem on my 2000 C2 cab. Window drops just a little bit not enough for the glass to clear off the plastic frame on the top. I did many searches and it seems like my car has stretched cable which can be adjusted or replaced with the new regulator. I have not fixed it yet....due to tight budget. What I do is remember to lower the window a bit before open the door :-(
  4. Hi. I have the same quarter window problem on my 2000 C2 Cab. I would appreciated if you could give me the information of where you bought the part and where you had your car fixed. I live in Riverside. Thanks. Nghia Ho nghiaho58@yahoo.com
  5. Hi all. My 2000 C2 Cab has passenger rear window problem; it does not move up or down as I push on its switch. It last operational was when I close the top in the 105 degree heat in Palm Springs. The window came up (but not all the way) and the top was closed fine. I checked the window and it seems like the window is disengaged or broke off from the regulator cable or belt, because I can grab the window and pull it up or push it down. I need help here. Does anyone know here I can find the instruction of rear window removal or has done this job before which will share the information. I sea
  6. I agree with Logray. I had the same problem on my 2000 C2. I fixed it with four nylon washers but it works for about few months. I then bought a new horn cage from Sun Set and the problem is fixed the right way. Don't waste your time with washers or silicone. If you love your Porsche then fix it right
  7. Congratulations! It is like a newly wed...you will get to know her secrets if you drive her more often and of course hard like someones here said "drive it like you steal it"
  8. If you can drive the Porsche then you got know how to change its oil. <$100 in parts,15 minutes job and you know it was done right.:drive:
  9. It is a simple replacement process. Open the hood and locate two nuts right below the emblem. Use a 10mm socket to loosen and remove the nuts. Remove the emblem and gasket. Clean the emeblem area and install new gasket, emblem and tighten two nuts. Honestly, I have not done the work but by looking at the way the emblem was installed I figure the steps above will work. Good luck! Nghiaho58
  10. You can read the coolant temperature in the diagnostic mode that shows on the display at the console. I use it to monitor the engine temp while driving. Here is the info I got from Rennlist forum. ----- To access diagnostics: Hold down the Recirculating & Air up buttons for 5 seconds. The + - buttons go up and down through the list of "c" codes. The center vent button switches the left display between the "c" code and its actual value. Press the Auto button to exit. I have yet to verify all these, this info was copied from wonderful people on PPBB! Here is a list of what can be

  12. Use Silicone lube to lube all joints on both sides of the top movement mechanism. This may help. My 2000 C2 top was having hardtime (jerking) to close and it works fine after I did the lube. Nghia
  13. From the Porsche Maintenance Schedule: · On vehicles with annual mileages of less than 9,000 miles (15,000 km), an annual maintenance must be carried out once a year. · Maintenance with oil filter change must be carried out at least every 2 years according to the mileage, if the mileage for a major maintenance has not already been reached. · For an annual mileage of more than 9,000 miles (15,000 km) it is recommended to carry out the next maintenance as soon as possible. Thanks Loren. I will perform an annual maintenance and delay oil change to the next 5000 mile (65K miles). I j
