  1. I get the same clunking sound, but on the left rear (driver's side). Beverly Hills Porsche misdiagnosed the sound twice. First, they said it was a loose swaybar. The second time they said it was some part connected to the emergency cable assembly, and that it could not be fixed. I took the rear left wheel of and saw nothing. This weekend I might go there again with a soft mallet :D Let's keep eachother informed.
  2. Ah, thanks for the info. I'll grease them up this weekend. If that does not resolve the problem, I'll have them replaced.
  3. Please do not rely on carfax, as I've personally seen some huge discrepancies. I think they go by what is reported to the DMV only. For example, if an owner pays for damage to his/her vehicle, and the insurance company is not involved, this would never make its way to carfax. Carfax should never replace a pre purchase inspection...
  4. Loren. I have the same problem but only when I activate the headlight washers. I just noticed that one of my healight washing jets is not working (driver's side), and the other comes up but does not jet any fluid out. I do endu up with a puddle of fluid in between the front driver's side wheen and the end of the front right quarter paner, near the driver's door. Do you have an idea on where I might start looking for loose hoses, etc.? Thanks Loren. MY02 and newer headlight washers are different from the earlier ones. Here is a diagram... Loren, really, what would this site be without you? :thumbup: You wouldn't happen to have a more zoomed out picture, would you? Thank you.
  5. I don't think this link is accurate at all in that it does not take ambient temperature into consideration. What this says is that someone in Alaska can use the same weight oil as someone in the Sahara desert. Now, if they asked for your zip code or city of residence, then it would be different. They are basically quoting factory fill...
  6. I live in Cali. I commute from the San Fernandeo Valley to West Hollywood every work day. I average 17.2 to 17.4 mpg, with an average speed of 23 mph.

  8. Not to worry, these cars are designed to take a good beating. You probably smelled a combination of tire, clutch, and oil residue on the engine. Everytime I beat my car, I smell these things. I once had a neighbor over (after some spirited driving), and he mentioned that my car smelled like it was about to catch on fire. I told him not to worry, that I just had driven it a little hard. :D Oh, always remember to drive slowly after a hard drive and right before putting her away. This will let all the components cool a little bit. I do a few miles around my home before I put her away in the garage. Otherwise, your car will smoke the next morning... not a pretty sight - and smells worse...
  9. Oh, looks good. Please keep us posted as I might do the same. Do you have any pictures of the cuts, and where? I have a turbo rear bumper in my garage, I mind as well make use of it. Thanks. :D
  10. Loren, do you know of a national auto parts store that carries this? Autozone, Pep Boys, etc. Thanks.
  11. Ok, I'll have the wifey turn the wheel as I listen. I was going to do this anyway. I was just curious to see if this was a reocurring issue on 996's. Thank Loren.
  12. I have an '02 Carrera 6 speed. I noticed that when turning the steering wheel there is a sound like when bushings or seals are dry on suspension components. The sound comes from around the dash area, or within the trunck near the battery, etc. I noticed it even more last night when I loaded up the trunck with groceries. Anyone know what might be causing this isse? Loren?
  13. Loren. Which sets of screws do what funcion? I will need to adjust the passangers side window this weekend, as it slams a little too hard when closing. The driver's window does not do this. Also, my windows move a little too slow. Is there a way of fixing this issue. Thanks Loren.
  14. The fault beep will also sound when either any of the doors, truck, engine bay lids are open. So, if you rely on hearing a fault beep while arming the alarm, this would cancel out the benefit of having the alarm in the first place. I would just ensure the parking lights blink twice when arming the alarm. Thereby ensuring a properly closed vehicle and armed alarm system.
