Thread resurrection time. 1999 C2. I had a bad brake booster. Dealer wanted $1800.00 to fix so I came across this thread. I ordered the booster and have installed it. I have bled the system thoroughly. Now, my brake lights are stuck on and the pedal has a too much travel. I just don't know if I am adjusting the push rod correctly. Should I move it closer to the booster or the firewall? It is super frustrating!
It's not too terribly difficult to fix. I did mine in a day, taking my time with many breaks. Only cost was foam and duct tape.

Porsche Pilot replied to Porsche Pilot's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)That's my issue Joe. I wanted to use the plug thing but if I remove the seat belt receptacle and transfer it to a race seat, I will have nothing to plug it into since the harness guts are attached to the stock seat.
Porsche Pilot posted a topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Gents, can a Durametric or the dealer version disable a seat belt chime? The reason I ask is, I plan on installing race seats but will attach the stock three point belt receptacle on the seat. Since it is wired to the under seat harness I have no idea how to make that whole connection.
Porsche Pilot replied to HGGuate's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)This is where the foam is coming from. This flap should be covered in foam but it deteriorates over time. It's located inside the heater core.
Weight savings are my guess.
It's not an overly complicated procedure, just a bit fiddly. If you decide to perform the DIY I can talk you through any issues. The whole thing took me about 5 hours with a few beer breaks in between. The hardest part was getting under the dash as I had to contort myself in ways only a skilled Russian gymnast can.
It is inside the heater core which is accessed under the cowl.
This is how the door looked when I took it out.
I just did this a few weeks ago. I used the widest window weatherstripping I could find at Lowes. It's a one side adhesive foam. I wrapped it all around the the door, wrapping around the edges. I then covered the whole thing in duct tape. Kind of a redneck fix but it works great. I had zero foam left on the door/flap. A/C is nice and cold now.

Art, I will pull the receipt tomorrow to see if there is a part number for the bushing. The part was fairly inexpensive but labor was the gotcha....dealer prices of course.
Nobody was more surprised than the shop foreman. He's never seen it either!
Quick update on the sticky brake pedal. My master cylinder and booster were fine. The sticking was caused by worn bushings in the pedal assembly. I hope this helps others in the future. Thanks to everyone for the advice.
