I have a 2000 C2 Cabrio and have located an OEM Taco Wing decklid the same color as my car. Will the Taco wing work with the Cabrio or will it interfere with the convertible top? Anyone done this? pics?
pterfloth replied to Oscarvan's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)If you pop off the cam plugs you should be able to get an idea whether the timing has shifted. At TDC the grooves should be vertical. I have pictures of them on my DIY IMS AOS thread on Rennlist. 996.
pterfloth replied to logray's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Please share your findings. I am looking at replacing my tensioners as well in my 2000 C2 Cab and your experience would be helpful.
pterfloth replied to seanmcr6's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)These are clearly screwdriver marks from someone trying to pry off the bumper.
Actual procedure turns out to be: Remove 2 mounting bolts with 10 mm socket on tranny side of AOS ~ 2 minutes Squeeze collars and pull off large connections ~ 20 minutes Compress hose clips on the 2 small hoses and move clips off connectors ~ 1.5 hrs Remove small hoses from AOS ~ 1 minute Jiggle out AOS and remove via bottom ~ 2 minutes Hate those small hose clips. They will be replaced.
Does anyone have a procedure or can direct me to a thread on replacement of the AOS on a Mk1 with the tranny off? I have the tranny off for an IMS retrofit and the AOS is sitting right there. I'd like to replace it while I'm here. I can't seem to locate any info in the WSM either. Your help would be appreciated!
I am looking at proactive replacement of the water pump on my 2000 996 C2 Cab. The OEM impeller is plastic. I found this water pump with a metal impeller on-line. A metal impeller seems preferable to me. http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=140304004760&viewitem=#shId Anyone have any recommendations/experience with these? Thanks
pterfloth replied to pterfloth's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Any pics?
I made the mod yesterday and everything is working perfectly. Thanks to eveyone for their input and for the excellent DIY.
The "How to Make Your Sidemarkers Flash" tutorial describes how this works for US 996's. Can the same mod be made to Canadian 996's with DTR lights?
Thanks EastBay! I have been working too much lately to get at a look at this but hope to in the coming week. I suspected a bit of service like you've described was all it would take. It only happens every once in a while but I like to address any symptoms as soon as possible. I'll post my findings once I get it out and have a peek. Much appreciate your input!
pterfloth replied to pterfloth's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)I added CF parts (from MACarbon) and then did red leather accents, new steering wheel, red trimmed mats...pics are in my sig link. Thanks. Very nice!
I am interested in spiffing up the bland interior of my Ocean Blue exterior, Metropol Blue interior 2000 C2 Cabrio and I am looking for inspiration. Who has re-covered their black gauge faces? Anyone used the dash trim kits to add contrast and color? Anyone gone wild with leather re-painting? Your experience, pictures, sources and suggestions would be appreciated.
I had the very same problem with my 00 C2 Cab. I followed the procedure in the DIY section to top up the hydraulic fluid reservoir (which did turn out to be low) and it works perfectly now. Link below.
