  1. Thats funny! Good luck in your research Ben and if you got any success just pass the info if possible... Do you think I can find this part, Jebus....I have spent all afternoon surfing for it......... Grrrr ...nothing!
  2. Thats too funny it blocked out F.........A........G. Bearings LOL
  3. No Pcar dealer in Kelowna but we do have a Merc dealer. They are half the price from Mercedes according to Adam who did a DIY on here. I called one of my buddies who works at Carlsen Porsche, he could not find the Merc #...darn it! They are the same so I am told. I would prefer to source them locally like the *** bearings which I have a good line on.
  4. Does anybody have the Mercedes part number for the shaft seal (3) on the front diff. There is a Merc part # next to the the Porsche number. Cheers, Ben Front Drive Shaft Seal PN.pdf
  5. Thought I would update this for others who run into this problem. As I said before my ABS sensors were very dirty indeed so I recommend when you have your wheels off, take the sensors out and take a look, you might be surprised. I only have 54KM on my car too. Even with them cleaned and double checking all the connectors and the brake pedal switch I was getting the failure pretty much all the time. I next turned my attention to my Hitachi MAF even though there has never been a failure of this MAF. I unclipped the special harness that EVOMS supplies to connect the factory harness to the M
  6. Thanks Statman, I have been reading up on the various faults that can cause this problem. There seem to be quite a few. I am going to order the Durametric Scan tool on Tuesday to see if it helps point me in the right direction. I have a feeling my AE scan tool needs the enhanced version which is why I am not seeing the codes. I am not going to throw parts at this problem! I am sure it is something simple Cheers, Ben It's an 02'
  7. Hi Loren, I hope you are keeping well my friend. First off thanks very much for the reply. I double checked my barke lights and they come on just fine so it's does not appear to be the brake switch. I have a EVOMS GT800+ now that uses a Hitachi MAF which apparently has never seen a failure in these types of cars. I have emailed Autoenginuity to see if their software can pick up ABS/PSM codes as they reference an enhancement to their standard product that can do this, just waiting for their reply. Thanks for your pointers, Cheers, Ben
  8. Hi Guy's, I looked through all the posts about this to see if there was something obvious but so far this has stumped me. I took out the Hall Effect sensors at each wheel, they were filthy dirty so I thought this might have been the issue but no luck. The dash displays the ABS/PSM failure which is intermittent but there are no codes stored when I fire up my Autoenginity software. I don't think the senors are bad, the wiring harness seem to be all fine. I checked my brake lights are working properly as I have have read the switch on the brake peddle can cause this so I am at a loss as
  9. Loren, I am going to be dropping my motor this weekend to do some work on her, I want to swap out my 6th gear ratio's back to my .75 OEM gears. Are there any special tricks or pitfalls to doing this. I know I just take the end cap off and pop the gears in...I was just wondering is that all? Cheers, Ben
  10. Please forgive my ignorance but is it possible to clarify which parts I need from this list as I'm pretty sure I'll do this conversion. I don't see the GT2 Rad hoses on that list either so I'm a little confused. Any help much appreciated. You cannot use the GT2 rad hoses they are a three way or Y hose. You have to get another set of turbo hoses (use hose clamps and a couple) and cut the ends off so you can tilt the radiator forward. You will also have to turn the radiator upside down to make it work plus re-locate the horns as they get in the way....its a fiddly job that I am just fin
  11. How did this turn out ? Did it work ? I am in the process of swapping my std seat on the drivers side for a Sparco seat. I have electric seats with memory, and to avoid having the airbag light coming on I need to re-attach the electrics from the seat, all or is there a separate connector for the buckle ? Regards, First and foremost do NOT start your car with the buckle electrical wire disconnected from the connector it attaches to. If you do it will throw an airbag code which the dealer will have to reset for you..cha ching for the "Stealer"!...maybe Remove the buckle and connecto
  12. I confirmed with Jeff, he thinks it's the Aero kit harness PN 996 612 070 30. Good call Loren. Ben
  13. Good point Loren....I will see. I e-mailed Jeff but nothing back yet.
  14. No, that is the TT harness PN which I already have....now you have me wondering what harness they use? ben
