  1. I had this problem in my '02. The dealer told me I needed a new instrument cluster ... which i was unwilling to pay for so I just left it alone. i will be interested to see if thss solves your problem.
  2. I just installed a new alternating in my 2002 996 TT. Not necessarily an easy DIY in that it took about 4 hours total. My issue is that i have a burning smell, kind of like burning wires coming from the alternator now. is there a typical 'burn in period' for an alternator or is this a problem? Thx!
  3. looking for the Alternator part number for a 2002 996 turbo (Manual Transmission) thx!
  4. OK. i read the tread and am still struggling. I have this problem ... had the alternator tested at Advanced Auto ... they said it is putting out low voltage and needs to be replaced .... can i just replace the diode pack OR do i need to replace the alternator? Also, i am having trouble figuring out what the appropriate part number is for the diode back .... FOOM-145-225 from the pelican parts forum does not seam to be a valid part number. thx!
  5. before i start ordering parts, is there a way to isolate if my problem is the regulator or the motor? when i hit the control button, nothing happens. its not the switch (i have switched them) and there is no grinding. thx!
  6. I am looking for the part numbers for the window regulator and motor. 2002 996 TT, Passenger Side. Thanks!
  7. thank you for the diagram. My switch is good, no fuse issues, and it does not go down at all. the one thing i did notice is that, when the window is up, if i press the up button, i can see a micro movement so it appears to be getting some power. Also, there is no grinding / noise.
  8. My Passenger window doesnt work. Luckily, it is in the up position but i am trying to trouble shot the possible problems / Fix. Thx!
  9. I need a new clutch on my 02 996TT and wanted to find out the parts required. thx.
  10. OK. I have this EXACT same problem on an 02 with about the same miles or about the same time frame. What i have noticed is that this problem typically happens after I fill the car up with gas. Also, it did it before and after I change the spark plugs. The bucking that you describes happens basically at lower RPMs when i am driving away from a dead stop and through 1 - 2 - 3 gears ... almost like its fuel starved. after a few really annoying minutes it stops and runs pretty well. Mark
  11. I need to top off my coolant. What type does a 996 TT use and can it be purchased at an AutoZone? Thx!
  12. I seem to be getting very poor gas mileage ... about 11 MPG in city only driving. I am not an overly aggressive driver, what are the potential culprits / areas to check? Thx. Mark
  13. Yes, that is correct, it appears to be coming from the overfilled clutch reservoir( "on the plastic around the filler cap"). thx!
  14. I have a pentosin leak under the hood, drivers side. Leak is on the garage floor as well as on the plastic around the filler cap. Is this a Slave or Accumulator problem? Thx in advance!
  15. Just curious how you know this has occurred ... is it that dramatic of a power loss where the car basically shuts down? Also, can you inspect the coil packs without removing a lot of stuff? Thx!
