Might add the rear windows are stuck down. Top pops then errors out. It will close, but rear windows stay down and don't respond to door switch.
Been a couple of years, but I finally got my car GTS 2012. Got it home and went to show it off to the wife, no Bueno Message on dash convertible top not in limits. Did a search, most suggest a trip to the dealer, tomorrow. Meanwhile anyone seen this before, see pic. Thanks
Talked to my Indy today, mine seems to be an AOS.

ratdog33! replied to function12's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)I have the same thing going on. I suspect it is the same thing.
Well I sent it off on a flat bed to the Indy shop here in Sac. I suspect there is a procedure to lower the engine to inspect and enable a repair, but at this point I need to get this old girl back on the road. Stay tuned fellas I will update what I learn from the Indy. Thanks for all your replies.
I tend to agree, I used a mirror and could not see the tank leaking. Took it out anyway so I could get a better look. appears to be coming from the front of the motor, not the tank that is for sure. I'll post later tonight.
Last night, in the dark, I thought I had an oil leak. Turns out it is water aka coolant. I raised the car up and could not find the source. I started the car everything sounded fine. No leaking let it idle for 10 minutes still no leak. Drove it around the block and looked again and it was raining coolant from what looked like the front of the left side of the motor. The heat shields were in the way so I could not get a good look. I took a couple of pictures. Any thoughts as to next steps before I blow my bonus over at the dealer service department?
ratdog33! replied to ratdog33!'s topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Puddle is directly under the oil filter, near as I can tell...I gave it a quick look on my way out the door today. Appears the puddle might be water with antifreeze. Could explain the oily feel last night when I dragged my hand through it. Nothing conclusive yet. I will jack up the car tonight and crawl under it for a closer inspection. Sure hope this amounts to something trivial <fingers crossed>
ratdog33! replied to ratdog33!'s topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Yes, here in Roseville. I will roll under the car tomorrow after work and look for the source. The car is a 2003 C4 80K miles. so far been very tight. Appreciate the tips, keep them coming. I will report back tomorrow night with pics. Thanks guys
Heart break comes to mind.... I went off to enjoy a great spring day, run to the gym etc. later tonight I see I have a fresh puddle of oil under the car (i am guessing 1/2 qt) . Any suggestions what I might begin with looking for? Car seems to run fine with no abnormal symptoms.
agree, I did find one out there for a ~$100.00 after some searching. Btw, I found that bicycle tire levers work well for popping off the door panel. Best of luck
+1 on the LN drain plug quality unit.
ratdog33! replied to seanmcr6's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)+1 my dealer is all about the "In and out". I did a pretty basic boot change for $9.00 that the dealer quoted me $500.00. All about supporting the economy, but gee some of these charges are driving me to seek out a good indy.....aka...me!
