  1. Hi, I wanted to change the cable From alt to starter/battery as well, but it looks very complicated. Is there a tutorial somewhere?
  2. Hi all, reading some material around I found the following: 1. put the vehicle on jack stands 2. remove airbox 3. using an hydraulic jack, raise a "platform" to sustain the engine from the bottom 4. unscrew the engine motor mounts and remove them Now I should be able to slowly lower the jack (item 3 above) and the engine should drop about few inches, right? Here are my doubts: a. How would I know how much I can lower the engine without causing damage? I mean, what happens if I lower it too much? Will I break something? Or does it stop dropping? b. a part from the airbox, is there any other item I should remove (hose, pipe, electrical connectors) to avoid breaking it because of stretching while the engine is partially dropped? thanks
  3. Hi all, I have been trying to find a DIY guide to partially drop the ingine of my 997 C2 (2005) as I want to give the engine a good clean from the inside. I am sure I saw once a guide with good photos but could not find it again. Is there anyone who could point me to such a guide? thanks 2005 Carrera 997.1 Cabrio Tiptronic
  4. Hi, thanks for the advice. I could not understand properly where this cake accumulates. Is it behind the back inner fenders? Or elsewhere? thanks
  5. This is what I suspected... Should it change with the temperature? And what should be the voltage at the back of the alternator? 14,5-15,0V Is it normal a drop of 0,5V from the alternator to the battery? Anyway, I'll get the alternator checked very soon.
  6. Thanks for all your replies. Before removing the alternator again, let me understand: What is your voltage reading at the battery terminals with the engine on and with headlights and a/c on? And does it drop as soon as the engine warms up? To what value? Thanks.
  7. Hi all, I need an advice on how to proceed. I own a C2 MY05. I changed the battery last week and the technician told me that my alternator is running too low. So here are my readings of my alternator and battery: (The reading of the alternator is taken from the back of the alternator itself - I took the alternator out and connected a cable to the back of it and then reinstalled...) Running @ 1500-2000 rpm with lights on, A/C on and radio on. Cold engine: Alternator: 14,30V Battery: 13,80V After 5 minutes: Alternator: 14,00V Battery: 13,60V Hot engine (After 15 minutes): Alternator: 13,80V Battery: 13,30V Questions: 1) is it normal to have a 0,5 volt drop from the alternator to the battery? 2) Is it normal that the alternator drops from 14,30V to 13,80 as soon as the temperature raises up? Should I change the regulator perhaps? 3) What are your readings at the battery terminals? Are mine readings in the average or is my alternator too low? 4) Should I consider changing the cable from the alternator to the battery? Thanks a lot
  8. Hi, does anyone have the vacuum routing diagram for the 997 MY05 (European version)? I don't have the sticker in the engine compartment... A photo of the sticker would be fine. thanks a lot.
  9. Hi all, My first post. Today I managed to remove the plenum and the resonance chamber to clean them. But when I was re-mounting the resonance chamber, I couldn't remember how it was originally fitted. Does it have a standard position, or could it be installed in any position? I mean, should the flap-valve be on the back or in the bottom of the resonance chamber? And, should the flap-valve be on the left side or on the right side? I noticed also that there is an arrow on the top of the resonance chamber, but I don't know where it should point to... Thanks for any help. 997 MY05 European model Cabriolet Tiptronic
  10. Hi M-Maika, Wonderful job dismounting the cluster!! I have been trying to remove the front plastic cover in order to remove some dust that accumulated in the back. But haven't been able to. This is what I did: 1. I removed the cluster 2. Removed all the 6 small screws that are on the back. 3. Opened the 5 clips (2 on the side and 3 on the bottom) 4. Pushed the front cover. But, I only get to open 1cm. in the bottom part then it get stuck. It actually opens in the bottom part, but the top part remains steady. Where is the trick? Thanks for helping. Ciao
  11. Hi, What is securing it is an electrical cable. Remove the plastic on the door side, and you will see it.
