is it safe to assume that this is not a critical part and won't cause further damage if not replaced right away?
ok, replaced all plugs and coil packs but cylinder 1 misfire (p0301) still happens only when it rains a lot. is there anything else that would throw that error when something gets wet? the car runs great and sounds great, even when the CEL gets triggered. The CEL error is more of an annoyance than a problem.
there should be instructions in the manual on how to manually retract the roll bar.
tommy3rd posted a topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)what is the biggest and most important thing to do at 60k? I inquired with the dealer here and was quoted a price of $1800 and was wondering if it's the labor that's the killer.

tommy3rd replied to rusty1's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)as a 911 newbie myself, i would also like to know what other north easterners do in the winter months...
tommy3rd replied to joaopk's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)folks here from north jersey seem to like and recommend powertech in rockaway. I'll use them when the time comes. Unfortunately, I had to go to a dealer to order an extra key.
if you need to reset the airbag light, you might need a Porsche specific reader/software like durametric, PIWIS or PST2. If you get durametric, you'll need to run it under emulation or bootcamp.

my son must have kicked it getting out. is this a user replaceable part?
the only CEL i got was a misfire on cylinder 1 (P0301) when it rained here for a week. when things dried and I cleared the error, the error hasn't returned. i wasn't concerned when it happened because the engine still sounded normal.
