I've had two Durametric products so far; the Enthusiast version and about two years ago, bought the Professional version. Yeah its OK and it does some neat stuff, but Durametric seriously needs to produce a detailed manual and not the User Guide (dated 10-6-2019) that can be downloaded, which by the way, shows screen shots from versions that no longer exist. Most folder names are self explanatory, but what does BCM Front, BCM Rear mean...for example. Maybe an acronym chart would come in handy. Then Durametric's on-line video demonstration describing the Reset Service Reminders shows version 184.108.40.206 which does not even relate to today's 220.127.116.11 version. Yeah, I got it figured out but it still did not work. Instrument Cluster - Commands - Service Interval Reset - Oil, and "Send". It did its thing and I still get "Change Oil Now". Also it would be great if they specified what the three options are...in detail: Service Interval Reset - Oil Service Interval Reset - Interim Service Interval Reset - Main and Interim I know what "Interim" means, but how does it apply to Porsche's maintenance? And what does Main refer to in Porsche's maintenance?
I looked at both the Service and Parts Manuals. All I could find for a location of the fuel pump relay is what appears to be in the driver's side fuse panel footwell area and it seems to be a single relay, instead of a dual relay as used in the 993. Will look for it when the time comes to pull the car out of winter hibernation. Thanks!
In the 993, I would simply pull the DME Relay. That cuts power to the fuel pump, etc. I could then crank my engine to pre-oil the motor after extended periods of storage. How is that done on a 991?
Don't you just love these dipstick-less cars designed for millennials? On my first oil change, I over-filled it by 1.25 liters all due to the fact I did not fully understand the Oil Measurement Display. I thought the MAX level was at the top of the bar, which it isn't. The MAX level is shown in A below. Anyway, I just drained it and the level is at MAX. I also would not use a vacuum pump for the reasons mentioned.
The pic was taken on a very sunny day which makes it look like a light grey...certainly closer to anthracite. The only thing, according to the Porsche parts catalog, a 1995 993 only came with a black carpet. I'll have to check with my dealer one day. I want to match a CD changer cover to the carpet.
So that is what it is. I happen to have that technical bulletin on file as well. I would guess there is one on the driver's door as well, because the one pictured above is on the passenger door. I still don't know what the Digital Sound Processing System is all about or what it does. My 993 came with option 490; Hi-Fi Sound System. Thanks.

IXLR8 replied to dlipka's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)I came across this thread after performing a search for a procedure for mirror replacement on my 993. Its a good thing I wasn't in a rush... Not that anyone said it could be used, note that this procedure cannot be used on the side mirrors of a 993. I wrote up a short how-to for mirror replacement on a 993 which is held in place by a rotatable ring that locks the mirror in place. 993 Side Mirror Replacement
