  1. It's not possible to put in a later models' glass window, or even the whole top from a later model. The framework in the top is different. GAHH does have an aftermarket top w/glass and defrost that will fit in 00-01 996s. Look HERE. TX996CAB
  2. You can isolate the windshield seal by putting some blue painters masking tape around the outside of the windshield between the glass and the frame. If the whistling goes away, take off small sections of the tape to narrow down the location.
  3. Donate to the forum and you will get access to the TSBs.
  4. I hope it shifts better with a nine million dollar tranny/clutch :P
  5. Holy cow!! I've been waiting for something like this since my plastic window has been detaching itself from the rest of the top.
  6. The cost can range anywhere from between 3k to 5 or 6k, depending on how many subs you want, mirror tweets, etc. They make road trips periodically and I was lucky they were making one in my area and they could squeeze me in.
  7. Check this post. I think it's what you're looking for: http://www.renntech.org/forums/index.php?showtopic=287&hl=
  8. All, I just had Reus Systems install "The System" in my 2000 C2 Cab and all I can say is "Holy sonic booms batman!!" It has a sub in the spare and a sub in the passenger footwell along with replacement speakers all around. Oh, I also have tweets in the rear-view mirror pointing forward. The imaging is amazing and the system is crystal clear (even at 90 w/ top down!). It is, by far, the best sounding, non-intrusive system I have ever heard. I'm using the stock head unit, so at first glance, it doesn't look like anything's been done but when you crank it up..... To answer a question about getting the bass up front, the sub in the spare is ported in through the hole where the steering column would be in a RHD (British) vehicle. Amazing engineering. TX996CAB
  9. You could always try ebay, or try this place. I've never dealt with them, so try at your own risk. Keep in mind that as of '02 or '03 (not sure which), if your car did not come with a hard top, you don't have the mounting hardware in the rear of the car.
  10. LA Dismantler (911pcar.com) is who I talked to, but they weren't too helpful: "Yeah, we've got one, it's a bolt on, do you want it?" I was hoping to find someone on the board that has done it or seen it.
  11. I have read in a few posts, as well as been told by 911pcar.com that a complete top assembly replacement using an 02-04 donor will work for my 2000 996 cab. My plastic window has begun delaminating from the canvas. Dealer says they can replace plastic window for ~$700. I found a complete assembly at 911pcar.com for $2500 with trade, or $3500 outright. This includes canvas, glass, liner, all frames, pumps, etc. They say it's just an easy bolt on. I'm hesitant to buy it because I'm still not 100% satisfied that it will work. Has anyone done this or know someone who has? What about 911pcar.com? Anyone dealt with them? Thanks, tx996cab
  12. Thanks for the quick and accurate response Loren. -Rob
  13. I have a plastic trim piece with P/N 996.521.317.00. I'm thinking it's part of my convertible trim, but I can't tell where it goes. I've checked a few dealers online that have part number searches to no avail. I've only had the car for a couple of months, and I'm still getting to know her. Thanks much. -Rob 2000 996 Cab
