  1. View this tutorial Starter Remove/Replace I hate tutorials where people just post a list of instructions... I can read, but I like pictures better. I have attached the Porsche instructions for reference. This is an easy repair in terms of technical difficulty but the physical difficulty is up there unless you have arms & hands the size of a 5-year old. You will never see the upper bolt until it falls out. You will see that I have remove the counter-weights from the shift lever - this is not necessary for the starter removal - I jus

  3. The thread has been re-imported (well. most of it anyway). Chuck made it sound like EBWorks was responsible for the total pooching of the thread because EBWorks isn't a sponsor any more. I wonder if they go back and delete all the threads people ever posted when they stop being sponsors?
  4. Hey - 6SO has put the thread back. They are still working on merging the last thread into the new one, but when it is finished, you'll find it here: http://www.6speedonline.com/forums/group-buys/302973-996-l-e-d-rear-tail-lights.html . I think it would be prudent to keep this one going too, so I'll post updates in both places.
  5. It looks like UrbanHotRod on 6SP has stepped up and fixed this so the thread will be back on 6SO tomorrow. Apparently they are going to move it to a "Group Buy" section. I'm not sure what that will look like, but I'll be looking for it.
  6. Done - we're up to 222! Stats are here: http://www.comtech.ws/scripts/GroupBuy.dll/Home
  7. Excellent - happy to see people are still following. Since I have the 6SO names, I can always go back to 6SO and PM all parties when the product is available. I can probably write something to do it automatically, so it shouldn't be a big deal.
  8. You do not have to resubmit if your name is already on the list. We can just move on with the new guys...
  9. This thread is here to replace the one that was on 6SpeedOnline but deleted because it was considered a "Group Buy". The whole synopsis is described here: http://www.comtech.ws/scripts/GroupBuy.dll/home but here is a quick recap... The initial thread was created to show vendors the interest in a product for which no vendor was willing to commit to production because vendors thought there would be no profit in it. I had approached CarGym and asked what kind of numbers would be required to make the project profitable for them. I expected that other vendors would require the same participatio
  10. OK, my memory letters/numbers light up. Perhaps it's time for you to remove the panel and check to see that the plugs are properly connected.
  11. So let's get the facts perfectly clear - you set the memory as described above. Then you move the seat. Then, when you press 1 (all by itself - no "M") any time the ignition is on - the seat does not move back to the memory location. Is that what is happening?
  12. I fixed mine by using carbon fibre. The CF mount is a little more flexible than the original plastic. I fixed it a year ago and it's still good.
  13. I have started a thread on 6Speed to get a feel for who is interested in rear LEDs for the wide-body 996. Currently there are absolutely no vendors who produce a light that will fit. Sure, you can get rear LEDs for every other model 996, 997 and 20 different other cars, but Nada for us. I found a manufacturer who is willing to produce them (they already make LEDs for a bunch of other models) but we need to have 250 commitments in place at $600 per pair for them to do it. So far we have 82 on 6Speed, but we are not getting the numbers fast enough. So, I'm expanding the search to get peopl

  15. Yep, same just happened to me. Here is the culprit: Does anyone know which piece needs to be replaced? Is it the tumbler or the support?
  16. DIY - Replace Coolant Reservoir This is a DIY to replace the coolant reservoir in an 996 TT. This procedure is fairly easy but what bring the challenge into it is that everything is very tight and hard to get to. Take your time - give yourself a good 6 hours to pull this off. The second time, you could do this in two. Author SliderG35 Category TT/GT2 (996) - Common Fixes and Repairs Submitted 01/06/2011 08:38 PM

  20. Front Seat Removal Removing the seat is really easy and should take a novice 5 minutes. Tools required - Screwdriver or pry tool, Torx Sockets and a ratchet. Author SliderG35 Category TT/GT2 (996) - Mods Submitted 07/03/2010 12:22 AM Updated 07/03/2010 11:06 PM

  22. I have an 01 911 TT, with Nav and 6 cd changer - will the iWire wire work for me?
