I posted again one of the 2 photos attached to my previous post, but unfortunately it is also not readable. In any case none of the photos covers the yellow coolant that makes the vast majority of the coolant that is in the car now. After so many years I cannot tell for sure who provided that yellow coolant, but I am completely sure that the coolant bottles had Porsche labels on them, perhaps counterfeit Porsche labels, but Porsche labels. Per your advice I will get the coolant replaced. Thanks.
000-043-301-05-M100.pdf I upload the files attached to my previous post one at the time hoping that they will be downloadable.
Thanks. I got the water pump replaced. That was many years (but not miles!) ago, so the pump should still be ok. It is good to know that all the Porsche coolants are compatible with each other.
DBJoe996, JFP in PA, Thanks for your replies. The attached photos show the labels on the coolant bottles with the part numbers that I mentioned in my original message. I need to make a correction to what I stated in my original message. Yes, I bought coolant 000-043-301-05-M100 from Pelican, but that was only 1 gallon that I used for topping off the reservoir when needed. I did not buy the coolant that was used for completely replacing the coolant in my car many years ago from Pelican. I bought that likely from Sunset. Unfortunately Sunset told me this morning that their records don’t go back that far, so I don't have a part number, but definitely it was not Pelican, because that purchase is not on Pelican’s records. That coolant was yellow in color. Now most of the coolant in my car is yellow with an unknown Porsche part number and approximately 1 quart of a 50% mixture of water and correct Porsche red coolant. I wonder if the car can be driven or I should replace the coolant immediately. Thanks 000-043-301-05-M100.pdf 000-043-305-15.pdf
When we replaced the coolant in my car in 2013, we used coolant Porsche part number ‘000-043 -301-05-M100’(pre-mixed). The color, based on a little quantity left in one of the 2013 bottles, was red. The coolant in the car seems yellow now. I have just topped off the coolant today, using Porsche coolant part number ‘000-043 -305 15’, red color (I mixed it with water, 50%). Could somebody please confirm that the 2 coolants are compatible? Thanks
It was recently brought to my attention that the heads of the wheel lugs in my car are 17 mm instead of 19 mm (factory lugs). Is there any problem with that? Is it possible that also the length of the lugs is not standard? I am going to get rid of the lock keys. Therefore I will need to buy 4 new lugs, if I keep the other 17 mm lugs. Any chances that lugs with same diameter and length, but made by different manufacturers, may have different weights , which would affect the wheel balance? Thanks
Thanks to All. My door lock has also failed. So the information from toddmac12 is also appreciated!
I need to replace the driver side window regulator. I have seen that many aftermarket window regulators are available at prices that vary significantly. I was also told that re-built original units can be purchased, but I could not find any online. I would consider both options. Any recommendations? Thanks
Thanks. I will remove the door panel and have a look at that pin shaft.
Philip54 started following 2000 996 coupe 6 speeds: door lock stopped working
I cannot lock the door any more. The key rotates freely with no resistance. Any suggestions on how to fix the lock? Thanks
Creekman, thanks for the update. I have not yet had the A/C doors replaced. I have been travelling on business and I have not used the car much. I have gone so far as re-covering the frames of my spare doors with new foam.
The battery of my car has been disconnected for about 2 weeks. Are there any issues to be expected when I reconnect the battery and start the car again? Also, on one of the electrodes I cannot get the specified torque. The 2 lugs on the wire don't stay parallel. Anything that I can do besides replacing the wire? Thanks
Thanks, Ahsai. For some reason I had missed Fig.5. I have figured it out now.
Thanks, Ahsai. But I am not familiar with this alternator and what is on the back side of it. Where is the connection point and what are its shape and approximate dimensions so that I can finalize the geometry of the hook? Thanks
