I just wore out a set of rear tires on the inner shoulder of the tires (equal both sides). I changed the tires and took the car to the shop. Seems like they are at -2.3, when they should be at more or less -1, and there is no play left to adjust it as the former owner had her lowered. It was explained to me that the eccentric screws were already at the most favorable position. Is there anyone out there that would have an idea if there are any way of addressing this - or do I have to just spend more money on tires over the years or alternatively raise it up again?
My rear tires have been slowly wearing down, but looked like they would last the season. The last month however (or so it appeared to me) the inner shoulder of the rear tires quickly disappeared and the steel threads became visible. Is it normal that this happens at the end, earlier it looked like they were wearing evenly across the tire.
I get all confused info as to if I can remove my 993 TT battery when putting her away, or not. Some claim that it can screw around with all the systems, but most people seem to claim that the only effect is that you have to put in the radio key when putting the battery back in the spring? I also have heard that the first 20 minutes or so she might be unreliable in the spring while the engine is finding it's "settings", something I could live with. Reason for the question is that the garage owner doesn't allow batteries in due to the fire hazard. Comments?
I had that on the TT I bought 5 weeks ago. The former owner admitted having had the same problem and claimed to have solved it with a tad of grease. My mechanic said that was totally wrong after i had added some new grease and got rid of the problem. I believe what my mechanic said when I admitted my faux-pas, that maybe try some brake liquid injected with a syringe...... As opposed to the grease that won't get stiff when aging... Just my thoughts....
