rcg412 replied to porsche356's topic in 997-1 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 2S, Carrera 4S)Had this on both sides of my 07 997s. Dealer replaced both inner door seals. The door seal is a half inch of foam and comes on part of the panel, the panel is the part that is ordered/replaced. Good luck, Wouldn't lose any sleep over it.
rcg412 started following 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)
rcg412 replied to marcusC4S's topic in 997-1 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 2S, Carrera 4S)Sorry to be a pain but I looked and I looked and I really couldn't find a grey connector like the one in your picture. I took a few pictures of the area behind the right air box the best I can (you know how spacious the engine compartment of our car is) and I hope you or someone can make some sense out of it. Please :help: !! Marc http://forums.rennlist.com/rennforums/997-...-a-997-a-2.html check out post #22... its in a different location. who knew!?!? :)
rcg412 replied to montegoblue's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)I am convinced they all rattle and creak - i took it to the dealer and they greatly quieted it down, but it is never going to be lexus vault quiet...
rcg412 replied to gary996's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Be super careful with the included 5mm tool... Mine for some reason got stuck in the hole and I could not pull it out (tried with pliers, diff leverage, everything). I read somewhere here they get caught... after some very careful wiggling it unlocked and I got the tool out... but going forward I use a screwdriver with 5mm hex wrench on it. Very scary.
Hello: In my 2003 996 C2, with factory installed bi-xenon headlights. Yesterday I adjusted the vertical adjustment on my left beam as it was too high - pain to do, pulled out assembly and did it that way. All was easy enough, but when I put the assembly back in and did the bi-xenon dip test (light switch on, then turn on ignition), only the right headlight dips, the remedied left does not. :huh: Any ideas? I read one post where there is a high voltage wire which could get snagged... Any help much appreciated. Thanks, Ross
rcg412 replied to raloise's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Went from an 01 to 03. 03 Is great, 01 was great too. Main differences i have noticed isthe 03 is MUCH tighter and a lot more low-end grunt. There is very little difference between 03 and 04... slight tweaks (i believe) from 02 to 03.
rcg412 replied to GForce83's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Same here... Seems the oil sender unit is finicky - wouldnt lose any sleep over it. Ross
I was in same predicament... after losing two rims to potholes, I use 18s in summer and 17s in winter. Performance degradation is minimal.. Mine is a daily driver.
Thanks loren - are these "plug n play" or if i get an .05 or .07 will i need a PST2/PIWIS to recognize it?
Hello: Can anyone confirm the below part numbers for the Amplifier in a MY03 996 Coupe, CDR-23, with bose hi end and changer system (MOST) are: 996 645 333 05 996 645 333 04 Potentially on the hunt for this amp, and want to confirm the numbers. Many Thanks, Ross
rcg412 replied to ADias's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)If by feel you mean handling and ride comfort...I think it also depends on what tires: make and size you "wear". For example MPS2s in 295/40-18 I would go pretty close to Porsche recommended 36/44, but MPSC 315/30-18 I would go more 32/40 (and lower on the track). Why would you not run Porsche Recommended specs??? Its like 15w50 vs 0w40... swear by Porsche there, but disagree on tires?? Dont get it.
most people seem to go for the PS2... i believe the rib were older... or at least more for the track?
Yes - I run Michelin PS2s, never going back. Hate pirellis, they are noisy as hell and they wear quicker than any other tire. Have also had decent experience with Dunlop (but only in a snow tire). The French make a hell of a pneu!
May be able to purchase a like new Suspension off of a 2003 C4s. Looks like springs and shocks. Will this bolt on as a replacement suspension on my 2001 C2? Or totally different parts? Many thanks, Ross
rcg412 replied to bnewport's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Warrentech or Repairmaster are the company and yep, they paid, 9970US for a replacement engine from Porsche with 2 years from the factory. The dealer said the warranty don't do Porsches anymore because of the losses covering the cars. So far, they paid about 22k for my cars repairs over 3 years. It's covered until 2009 or 72k miles. The most they will pay is the value paid for the car or 46k in my case. Porsche are now covering the transmission or engine for the next two years. thats awesome... congrats.
