The vent hose allows a place for the highly explosive hydrogen ( by-product of acid eating lead) to escape. The hydrogen can cause corrosion of metal in the area and could explode with spark if conditions are right. The chances are small but if you've ever experienced a battery explode it is not pretty. Listen to Loren.
Do more searching because I've read of that same problem several times. Not sure what year or model Porsche but on some their is an electronic component under the front bumper passenger side that after washing their Porsche their electronics went wild. Good Luck, Robert.
Don't remember. I was hurting too much lying on the concrete with a screwdriver and a flashlight. I know it doesn't take many turns to find the limit either way. One or two flats can make the difference. Sorry, Robert.
My 99 c2 996 has two bags but the control on one seat shouldn't adjust the other. Take it back.
I know this is an old thread but could I get some quick advice? Car is a 99 996 C2 3.4 U.S. My parking brake is way out. So I don't have to take off the rotor, which way do you turn the adjusting nut in the hub to tighten the brake shoe. I know this sounds stupid but I don't want to get it too far out. Thanks. For instance, on the drivers side.
ALLSPEED replied to TScanlan's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)North Carolina? Sure there's not a Pine tree nut or something stuck in there?
ALLSPEED replied to roperin's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Thanks for the clarification.
ALLSPEED replied to roperin's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Isn't the wet carpet a sign for a leaking coolant tank on a Boxster? Just trying to learn.
Believe it or not mine ended up being the engine compartment purge fan sensor had removed itself from it proper spot and was hanging down by the exhaust manifold. Far cry from having low coolant.
I'm not quite clear. Are you losing coolant ? Is the light flashing or solid? From what I've seen here if it loses coolant it's most likely the coolant tank and if not it's most likely the coolant level sensor. There are several scenarios that can make this light flash. Engine compartment fan, coolant temp., coolant level. I just went through a similar problem on my 1999 911. There is a chart that shows most of the things that can make it flash. If your not losing coolant do a search or look at "Low coolant Light" under 996 series. They are very similar. Good Luck and don't give up.
ALLSPEED replied to Gonzo911's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Is the motor mount O.K. It's right about in that spot. I've heard of them leaking a clear fluid. Just a guess.
ALLSPEED replied to ALLSPEED's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Yes, with the help of you guys all she needs is a good bath and a couple of well washers. I hope to never see that light again. Thanks again to all who helped me with this one, Robert.
ALLSPEED replied to ALLSPEED's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)A point for Mr. Vicary. I took a little jeweler's screwdriver and gently poked around at the weather seal and another little springy thing (for lack of words) that sticks out on one side right before the weather seal. Pushed her back together and it latched. Thanks again to Wayne.
