zoomee replied to jose's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Some cracking at the cross drilled holes is inevitable if you track your car. This "heat checking" won't harm anything unless the cracks link adjacent holes or grow to the edge of the rotor.
zoomee replied to 996driver's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)I swap between the Hawk DTC pads (for track events) and the OEM pads all the time. It usually takes about 100 miles of city driving to clear the pads and bed them with the new material. After that no problems.
zoomee replied to etienne's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)I agree. The bolt with the tie wrap around it in your second photo is definitely backed out. It's possible that the tie wrap was used to hold the plastic fitting (#18) to the bolt instead of the fitting being properly secured. This poor repair eventually led to the failure of the fitting. Good Luck!
