  1. Hi all, I have a 2018 Carrera T which I love. It's only done around 2k miles and is pampered. I haven't driven it for some time, and yesterday when I went to get in, the clip shown was sat on the drivers mat in the footwell, by the accelerator pedal. It's clearly broken off from it's 2 small mountings. I've had no work done on the car and no panels etc. removed, and the car hasn't moved - so i really don't understand this. The only thing I did recently was to recharge the battery, so had the front battery cover off - but I can't believe there's any access from the f
  2. Thanks Loren THere may be a lnguage thing here - sorry! I mean front BUMPER. This is what I wanting to fit to my 2 from a GT3 II. The one I have sen has a central air dam - and I'm wondering how this is 'closed off' when fitted to a C2. When you say 'leave the plug in place' do you mean this is on the car at present or that it's parts of the GT3 front PU? The pictures of the one I am byong just show a big gap in the centre. Thanks again.
  3. Hi all. I am thinking about fitting the front fender from a MkII GT3 to my facelift 2002 C2. I believe this is the same one from the aerokit II. I have done a search and read the TB for the aerokit II but still have a query. Pictures of the GT3 bumper I am looking at show a large central ari intake (not filled in). On the C2 normal bumper there's a panel in there as there is no central cooler. Does this central intake matter and is it simply covered by a panel than comes off the standard bumper....or is the one for the C2 in the aerokit different, without a central hole? Thanks for
  4. If you do a search there are lots of really useful topics on this. Well worth reading about all the experiences I think. I recently refitted mine and I think this is the optimal way: http://www.renntech.org/forums/index.php?showtopic=15938 I also thoroughly resprayed and wax coated all the fixings for the sill bottom and coated all the screws with POR15. They're just how I want them now! Takes time though.
  5. hi all Have a 2002 996 C2 and you may recall I posted a few pics of the sideskirts where the infamouns tape had come loose and the skirts had got grit and stones caught between them and the car... Anyway - I sorted out the small corrosion spots by carefully sanding them back in little circles, prepping the surface with POR15 Metal Ready and painting them with blobs of POR15 in silver. Fortunately I knew the marks would be beneath the side skirts when refitted. I hate the way the skirts fit normally - the kit is cheap and rusts, the tape is hopeless and they sit too tight against the ca
  6. Thanks Loren - Hmmm - I thought so too, but I think that's the one without the collar that comes with the fitting kit. (hence the quantity of 20). It's odd though, because in that diagram it does indeed look as though part number'6' also has a variant of which there are 2 - which would be right - BUT it has the part number oyu have already quoted!! 999.073.061.02 How frustrating!
  7. Thanks Loren - but nope - that's a cross head nornal small headed self tapper. I have a bag load of those. It's very similar in size and shape to the ones that come with the aerokit fitting kit, but it's longer and has the collar. Thanks
  8. hi there. This screw holds the underneath rear of the sideskirt to the plastic engine undertray by screwing into a spire nut (quick nut). It has a collar on it, which is important given how it fits. On the electronic parts list I see this is down as being one of the expandable plastic rivets - perhaps this is what is used on the standard car? The fitting kit for the sideskirts only comes with 10 screws - 9 for underneath and 1 for the front - which makes me think the rear is a screw on all cars... Here's a pic - does anyone know the part number please? Thanks
  9. Kare Here's what he said: "they weld a rod onto the body, and then use a dent puller to yank the dent out, and then set it flush again, cut off the rod, grind down the area, primer, paint, and clear." That is indeed what a decent panel beater will do. Just a thought - it MAY even be a PDR repair if you get the right repairer. That area isn't that noticeable and it's not like the rest of the paint (it has a textured rubberised stone chip coat), so you may get away with it. I did have another thought today when playing with my 996 though - why don't you bite the bullet and fit aero
  10. Thanks for the reply. I have a lump in it - as per the other poster. I have seen this before on cars where water gets under the seal and the steel core (if it has one) rusts and blisters. I have tried pushing it down, but it's a hard lump about 5-10mm across. It has also gone a little dull due to me messing with it, so it stands out even more - usual sort of thing! So - it's just me being VERY picky about the car to be honest. I guess I will replace it though, as there doesn't seem to be anything non-replaceable that could get broken - just plastic clips and the like. I might even
  11. MY02, so I guess it's a maybe!! thanks ps - found this http://www.renntech.org/forums/index.php?s...amp;#entry28421 thanks
  12. Thanks Loren. Have had a good look through all the guides for taking the inner door out - what's the chance I'll snap a fastener or something in the process!!?? Thanks again.
  13. Hi all. I have an unslightly bump in the outer rubber on the top of the door and would like to replace it. It's part number 996 537 086 07. Do I have to remove the inner door panel to replace this? has anyone done one? Any advice welcome. regards
  14. I have recently purchased an 02 C2 in polar silver. Tonight I was detailing the car, and noticed 3 really odd patches on the drivers door. Each is an oval, about 1cm max size, and looks like a very thin splodge under the lacquer. You can just feel them if you run a finger over them, they have undulated edges, but only distort the light slightly from certain angles - hence why I never noticed them before now. I have 2 theories: 1) They are very poor PDR repairs, where the repairer has made an oval set of microhighs (unlikely as I cannot see any marks to the back face of the door panel
  15. Thanks Loren. The odd thing is that in the TSB the part numbers for the aerokit II skirts end "04" not "70" Never mind!
  16. OK - had a look on the skirts and the PNs are: 996 559 984 70 and 996 559 983 70 Any ideas? maybe these are the elusive careera skirts? thanks
  17. Hi Loren. Mines an 02 C2. I have sideskirts and am trying to work out which ones they are. Seemingly the carrera sideskirts are different from the aerokit ones??? I have worked this out by looking here: http://www.pelicanparts.com/catalog/shopca...c996-detail.htm and comparing the aerokits and carrera sideskirts. regards
  18. I've had a really good look on here and on the parts CD, and am a bit confused about how many styles of sideskirt there have been. There are many references to the aerokit I and II, also the Aerokit Cup, but also "Carrera" skirts. I know some are more rounded and others have a sharper fold, but how many styles actually are there? I was of the belief there were only 2 - the one on the original GT3 and the one on the mark II - am I wrong? Aerokit II seems to be 000 044 802 15 Carrera skirts seem to be 000 044 802 5 I can't find the aerokit I ones, and there also seems to be a "cup" a
  19. both please. 996.504.393.01 and 996.504.394.01 correct? I also see there's an option of "satin black" - anyone know what would be standard on a polar silver car? thanks
  20. Thanks for the quick replies Loren. I'm beginning to get more and more confused! The part number 4 you mention - where does it actually go and why is it removed when sideskirts are fitted? The parts on the link I posted - which are part number 4? The upper ones? I take it the bottom parts are the rear splash guards I am after? The part I want is shown here:
  21. I'm not sure. What I am after are the parts to replace the rear 'mudflap' pieces which is smoothly moulded to the body and is left over when you fit the aerokit sideskirts. Maybe there are also front ones normally? Perhaps someone can let me know. It's the bits shown here in figure 9 at the end. http://p-car.com/996/diy/aerokit/ regards They are on the front. Item 4? I will need to know for what model year too. Thanks Loren. I am not sure it's part 4, as I think this is the spoiler lip for the outer of the front bumper?? What I am after are two things. Firstly, the

  23. ? But one does have the rear guards left over after fitting if I am correct? thanks
  24. Thanks Loren. As per my other post, I have removed the aerokit and am trying to get back to standard. I assume it's basically just a case of replacing all these parts for the rear - I believe that's all that is removed when fitting the sideskirts? Thanks again.
