  1. I agree with you 70Sixter and 2000996MIA. I think I will fix the RMS leak as it is for sure leaking slightly and while they are in there have them analyze the condition of the clutch and IMS rather than just blindly ordering up all 3 just because the tranny is down. I am usually an advocate of "if it's not broke don't fix it school" but with the IMS seal this could go from not broke to destroying the engine. I'm not going to hesitate putting $3K into the car as it runs real strong and is in near mint condition. In the meantime, I'll keep lurking and posting on the various forums until aro

In the meantime, I'll keep lurking and posting on the various forums until around mid to late April when the car comes out of storage and it will be time to schedule an appointment for service. Thanks everybody for your input.
  3. I'm having my RMS fixed in the spring. Please see other thread. The tech at the Porsche dealer that was installing my new tires mentioned that my clutch was engaging high at the end of pedal movement and that when I did the RMS I should replace the clutch. It doesn't chatter, never slips, and no throwout bearing noise with smooth, easy pedal movement. It's an 02 C2 cab with 23K miles. Does the clutch pedal engaging near end of travel indicate the need for a new clutch? Thanks for you input.
  4. I will be taking care of a what appears to be small RMS oil leak, replacing the clutch, and while we're in there doing the LNE IMS retrofit this spring. 23K miles on the clock. I was quoted $3K by a Porsche dealer in Chicago that I was referred to by Charles at LNE. They have done several there and I like that for piece of mind. Is $3K in the ball park?
  5. Yes. Charles at LNE recommended Joe Rizza Porsche in Chicago as they have done several IMS upgrades. They gave me an estimate of $3K for clutch, IMS, RMS parts and labor. Can't remember if that included tax. :rolleyes:
  6. Always use the latest part number seal. Right now that is: 997.101.212.01 Thanks, Loren!
  7. When my car comes out of hibernation, I will replace the RMS, clutch, and do a LNE IMS upgrade. I have read "Under Performing Seal" article, which has not been updated for awhile, and others. What is the part number for the seal that works the best?
  8. My local Porsche dealer returned a Vehicle Options Detail with the above option and specification for my 02 C2 Cab. I have seen option P05 elsewhere described as Advanced Technic Package which my car has. What does Club Coupe Specification 249 mean? I have seen this option listed for similar year C2's but no one describes the option. Anyone?
  9. Hey Bill- I tried the cleaning methods for seat memory button #1 to no avail. Since I drive the car 98% of the time I will give seat memory #2 which works to my wife (what a model husband) and move the seat back to my position with the front/ back lever when I jump back into the car. Thanks for your input.
  10. Thanks Bill. I have an 02 and it is person button #2 not #1. That's what happens when you don't keep a pair of reading glasses in the garage. Anyway, clearing worked. I was able to program #2 again but not #1. I will try the suggested cleaning methods in the next day or 2 and report back.
  11. Tried erasing the settings. Seat memory 2 was still set. I tried this with both keys just for grins. Since erasing the memory involves the seat memory #1 button, I assume something is up with that button. How do you suggest I try gently cleaning under button #1? I will give your suggestion a try. Thanks.
  12. Thanks, Bill, and others for your replys. I guess enable was the wrong word. I simply want to program seat memory 1 and 2 with the same key and to use the seat buttons along side the seats to recall the memory. I don't care about using the keys/remotes to recall the memories. I know the proper sequence and can set seat memory 2 just fine. Then I move the seat and set seat memory 1 using the same sequence with the same key in the ignition except pressing the #1 button. To see if button 1's memory has been set, I move the seat and press the #1 button and nothing happens. i.e. the memory
  13. I have two keys/remotes. One is red at the base of the plastic part of the remote and the other is yellow. This enables seat and mirror memory for each key when unlocking the car with the remotes.
  14. I've read and re read the owner's manual and have done exactly as written but I cannot program seat memory 1. I can program seat memory 2 just fine. I'm using the red key but not trying to program seat by key just memory buttons 1 and 2. Any ideas?
  15. I'm in the market for a set of 4 18" 996 Carrera Lite alloy wheels. I would prefer Porsche OEM in as new condition but not having any luck. I've seen replica wheels made in Italy supposedly to Porsche specs. Anybody have any experience with these. Are replicas any good?
  16. Please explain to me how upgrading to 19" wheel/tire combo could possibly ruin pads and rotors.
  17. Car and Driver recently reviewed summer max performance summer tires and they really liked the Hankook Ventus V12 EVO. Here is a link http://www.caranddriver.com/reviews/compar...comparison_test I need tires soon and I am seriously considering them. In my size they are less than half the price of PS2's. RE 18" vs 19". I recently bought a 02 C2 Cab that has 19" Carrera 2 wheels with worn 235 35 19 and 295 30 19 Conti's front and rear. The car handles great on the street and the tires are quiet, vibration free, and track straight as an arrow at speed. As a PCA member I asked the 996
  18. Thanks BruceP for your input. How many miles did your car have when you caught the immenet IMS seal failure? Doesn't the engine/transmission have to be separated to verify? Was that caught when fixing RMS or perhaps a clutch replacement? I have read that a RMS leak could be lived with until clutch replacement time as long as oil level is monitored. Your last statement is correct. A run of the mill RMS leak is not fatal as long as you don't care about your driveway. You could wait until it's clutch time, if that's what it is. My car had about 57,000 miles on it when the IMS seal fai

  20. I purchased a 02 C2 Cab 6 speed with 22k miles about 2 month ago from a private party. I knew about the RMS issue with 996's but pulled the trigger anyway on this 02 as it has low miles, all the options I wanted, the right color and in mint condition. My wife and I absolutely love the car. The previous owner said the car was dry and my hands and knees inspection showed no apparent leaks prior to purchase. I noticed a dime sized spot of oil on the garage floor yesterday and can see a drop of oil hanging from like a bolt head to the left and forward of the oil filter about mid engine. I r
  21. Car and driver just reviewed max performance summer tires and the Hankooks got good marks. http://www.caranddriver.com/reviews/...omparison_test I will need new tires soon and I'd like some real world input on these and any other pertinent comments. I was just about ready to go with PS2's but these are about half the price and Car and Driver thinks the Hankooks are better in all areas except in wet skidpad and wet autocross. I drive my car in the rain only when fooled by the weather man.
