Mdreef, My 2004 C4S Cab had the same issue that started on the driver side, unfortunately I am not as astute as a mechanic as the majority of the people in this forum and I had it replaced with a new OEM cylinder from a local independent shop. Then within 6 months, the other one on the passenger side went out......same issue. Hydraulic fluid dripping from the back wheel well. You are correct....these are not cheap to fix, but living in a Convertible weather, it is a must. If you can get them both repaired at the same time, by all means do that. I would have..... Good Luck.

Second owner of a 2004 996 4s Cab and have noticed black bits of foam coming through my dash vents. Is this from a deteriorating cabin filter or something else? If it is the cabin filter, is it easily replaced?
rrcgrb posted a topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Upon getting the set of keys for my 04 Carrera 4 s that I recently purchased, I found that one of the keys does work and the other does not. Do I take the keys or keys and car to the local dealer to program. Your help is appreciated.
Just a follow up to those who reponded.....this car was taken to the PPI on Monday morning with all intentions of buying. Looked showroom fresh inside & out The car drove over to shop like a dream. . until I made the left turn into the shop and the engine oil light briefly 'chimed on". Mechanic road tested the car and said it drove fine ,then placed it on the lift, . WOW....someone must of understeered over a curb because the right front bumper undertray was missing and the wheel well was cracked up about 8". Then as you followed back to the rear of the car, the shield over the coolant lines was gone. The best part was that over the oil pan was a huge scrape that went along the entire length and broke off part of the cast block. For obvious reasons, I rejected the car back at the dealership. Fortunately the only thing that was lost a morning of my vacation and a couple hundred dollars. Have a deposit on a one owner car. Back to you with more details as they move along. Thanks to All, Ron
Great Advice Dennis & Thank you....that is why I am throwing it out there to you experts. Having the PPI done on Monday, do not expect a lot to come back. Considering the Houston (Hot ) climate. Any advice on Oil Wt? Is 0-w40 too heavy or just right?
Phillipj The Car is at a fair price of 39,995 and it superclean w/ a clean Carfax ....have not found many in the Houston area that compare, especially a 4s. It test drove quite nicely, I might add. Having the Dealership contact the Beverly Hills Porsche to see if they can locate and print me a hard copy of the service order. Contacted a local independent garage and they will do a thorough all day PPI, but he did mention that Intermediate Shaft Bearing Fails, it is just a matter of when. Suggested that I negotiate the upgraded fix into my price. Will keep looking as you suggested . Much appreciate your response. Ron
This above referenced car is sitting at my local Porsche dealer. The car currently has 36500 miles. When I looked at the CARFAX the following service was completed at Beverly Hills Porsche (4-08 @ 22,800 miles)Transmission removed to complete repair Fuel filler cap secured, Front crankshaft oil seal replaced Engine cleaned Transmission checked. Had the dealer call BHP and they also replaced the clutch but no intermediate shaft bearing. Have requested the DME but have yet to get a reply. Will obviously get a PPI should I get a favorable response. Should I stay or should I go on to something else? Ron
