  1. Engine cover is removed. Looking at the engine from the seating compartment, the cyclinder head on the right (behind driver, Bank 2) has a cam postion sensor clearly visible to the front of the engine. Does this mean that on the cyclinder head on left (behind passenger, Bank 1) the cam position sensor will be to the rear of the car on the head?
  2. Thank you so much, I hope to get to it this coming weekend. Do I need any "Special" tools?
  3. Thank you so much. Bank 1 is on the passenger side of car and sensor is to the rear of the head? Is all that correct?
  4. Need help locating the cam shaft position sensor Bank 1 on my 2001, 986 S. Any pictures would be a great help.
  5. I recently replaced the master/slave cyclinder at the firewall. Bled the system, correctly??? Sometimes it seems to work correctly with a full pedal and other times straight to the floor with no rebound. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
  6. Thank you logray. I remounted the drivers side wheel, no more major jolting. All that's left is a very faint vibration, which I feel sure the 4wheel alignment will take care of. Thanks again.
  7. Mine is an "01" S. I recently replaced rear wheel bearings and CV boots. No problems with disassembly or reassemble. Followed DIY entry by "seafeye", great help. First test drive presented with very serious car jolting vibration at 59mph. Did not stop until I stopped the car completely. 2nd try at 52mph, same thing. Prior to this the ride is smooth, no shake, rattle, or vibration. Rechecked all nuts, bolts, torques. Nothing was off. 2nd test drive, same thing at 56mph. Made it back home and parked. Any ideas on this problem would be greatly appreciated.
  8. seafeye, Thank you so much for the offer. Charlotte is not far for me, I come their 2-4 times a month for patients. I happen to be off this coming F-S-S-M the 20-23rd. Would any of these days at any time work for you? My email is rgilpin1558@msn.com. Hope to hear from you soon. Again thank you so much for your offer. So far I have followed your steps and am to the point where I pull the hub out. Ray
  9. Thank you for such a complete presentation. I was wondering if you knew of anyone in the Carolinas that might rent the bearing pulling tools. I live in Spartanburg, SC. Don't mind the fee and also have my 944 I could leave as collateral. I don't mind a long drive. Thanks for any input.
