greg0078 replied to greg0078's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Thank u for the response. My battery charger was not providing enough amperage. I called out AAA, and they put their batter booster on the side post and 2 seconds, i was able to pop the trunk. I am going to have the shop fish the battery cable for, great advice.
I have a dead battery and cannot open the trunk. I have tried charging through the cigarette lighter, but not getting any power through there. I have tried connecting to the battery post in the fuse panel and the door post but i get no indicator on the battery charge is being put through. I read an article once that u can remove the right wheel liner and there is a manual handle to release the trunk. Anyone have instructions on this?

greg0078 posted a topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)OEM windscreen Porsche part# 996.561.125.03. Can someone tell me if this part number will fit in my 2001 996 Cab. It is designed to fit in the 2005-12, so i'm wondering if this was redesigned, so this part will not fit in my car. thanks so much in advance
greg0078 replied to greg0078's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)yes when i pull into the garage i hear the fans running. Im going to clear the radiators out first, i think thats a good first step
greg0078 replied to greg0078's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)i have not, but that is a good first start, thanks Loren
2001 996 47K miles. The engine temperature or coolant temperature needle has always sat on the 8 (180), once when i did a long 3 hr drive it drifted to then end of the zero, but it was a 3 hr drive on a 90degree day, but no big deal, that was 3 yrs ago. It has always sat on the 8. I noticed recently during city driving in about 15 mins, the needle starts to drift to the end of the the zero, and when its on the highway for a few minutes it would lower back into the beginning of the zero, but never back onto the 8. No leaks under the car, i see no signs of coolant in the engine, nor do i smell coolant dripping onto hot parts. My question is is this a precursor for something failing? Anything i can check? Any advice appreciated.
i dont know about the clutch fork or release bearing, but i did speak to another shop. They also leaned toward the release bearing could be the cause, and its a standard part that is included w/ the clutch kit, so should have been replaced at the time of the clutch repair. I was kind of hoping it was a belt slipping vs clutch repair job, but thanks for the feedback and fast repsonse
01 996 Cab Here is the scenario. When i release the clutch halfway and add some gas to the bite point some times i hear a squealing noise coming from the rear. It does not do it every time and the car is a daily driver. It seemed to do it more frequent when the weather got warmer, but some days it does not do it all. I had the clutch replaced in Feb 15 when they installed an IMS. When they put in a new clutch, they installed a new flywheel kit also. Any ideas to what this may be? Im hoping its not clutch related as I then have to go into the back and forth of them honoring their work. I already called the shop and they informed me their is no warranty on the clutch repair, which i find unacceptable. Opinions welcome
2001 C2 Cab. I got a used hard top for my convertible it was off an 02 996, and it fits good and the rear defroster light comes on, but it does not clear the rear window. is there some other connection I need to make? I didn't see any.
i am purchasing a used hard top and require the dimensions and weight for shipping. Does anyone have it?
greg0078 replied to greg0078's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Thanks White987S, I just listened to the video they sound real good, im going to call for prices
greg0078 replied to greg0078's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)thanks viper, I take it if you install those, you would not pass inspection?
greg0078 replied to greg0078's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)this is great info exactly what i was looking for
I am looking to replace my radio w/ a double DIN unit that has GPS and bluetooth. My antenna is broken and FM comes in and out, shop said only way to solve that is to replace windshield, so i was thinking i could stream pandora or a playlist off my phone. In the past i have always had Alpine units, anyone got any recommendations and any gotchas i should be looking out for? Not looking to break the bank, but would also like the porsche emblem to show up when u power on the radio, my friend has that on his Audi MY 01 996
