  1. HELLO, Mr Dharn, my car 2005 996 turbo, i upgraded the front to 997tt look.the shop missed up reed contact sensor of the fuel filler neck(Reed Contact # 99661322401).

    do you have the wiring diagrams for that ?

    i coould not find any connection for it, it look like the cut out completly .

    thank you very much in advance

  2. I am in the process of replacing the struts on my 99 C4 and saw that you also had issues removing the front axles. I have sprayed it with PB Blaster for about three days and even used a press tool with no success. How did you finally get yours removed? Thanks in advance, Jerry

  3. Those will hit the first time you go over a major bump and then you will have body and/or tire damage.There are lots of Turbo Twists out there, check eBay and other sources.
  4. Cam position sensor will make it run poorly but won't keep it from starting. The crank position sensor will keep,it from starting.
  5. Hey, I think that is my picture (-: But when this happened it was making a loud clacking noise, not a groan. The picture shows the top mount for a C4, which is quite different from a C2. in the last couple of years my car started making unbelievable groaning noises when the steering wheel was turned. Replaced the front lower control arms and the noise is gone.
  6. The control module had failed. Used one will be here tomorrow morning!
  7. Hobbes. Tried this but it did not help. I have now checked all 9 microswitches and reset/ checked both petentiometers and reset the latches at the windshield. Still no luck. I had a voltage meter on the leads to the hydraulic pump and there is no power being fed to it. Once the clamshell is open and the latch is open I hear a click and the in a few seconds another click, but no power to the pump. My next shot is to switch out the cab control module with one from a friends car that we know works. If that fixes the problem I will know the control module failed. If not I am not sure what I will t
  8. On my 2000 C4 Cab the top stopped opening yesterday. The clam shell opens and the latch at the top of the windshield opens and then it stops. You can hear some clicking. When I run my Durametric it shows a fault code, 5 - maximum time exceeded. If I clear this error it re-appears. A little background on this. Yesterday morning I used the RemoteTop on the car to open the top and it opened about 6" then stopped. This had happened a couple of time recently. When I got in the car and used the dash switch the top opened all the way. We went to the farmers market and used the dash switch, with the
  9. In the 16 years I have had my cab I have cleaned the drains for the cab top 3-4 times, but this spring the drivers side got blocked again. After a very heavy rain my locking system was going crazy with the car just sitting there. I opened it with a key and found almost an inch of water under the seat on the driver side. I took out the unit, opened it up and dried it out. Then sprayed some electronics cleaner on it. Unit works fine. However I have been trying to dry out the carpet for over a week now and the closed cell backing is still damp. Under the carpet there are recesses in the body and
  10. I have had a Durametric for over 10 years. Bought one of the first ones made and upgraded the cable a few years ago. It is a good system. Is it as good as the original Porsche systems? No, but it works great for a fraction of the cost. The new Porsche system leases for $15,000+/yr.
  11. If you have a C4 shop around for the top mounts. You see them all the time for $250-$300@+. I found them a few years back for closer to $150@, OEM, at Sunset I think. My buddy just paid $300@ each at his Indy.
  12. OK, I will put in my $.02 worth. Lifetime coolant is a bad idea, unless you define it as the lifetime of the engine (i.e. When the engine fails die to bad coolant). When my car was made (2000) Porsche recommended oil changes every 15,000 miles, what a joke! Do you know anyone who recommends going 15,000 miles on these cars today? When I had my intermix/cracked head back in 2008 I drained and flushed the entire coolant system several times to remove the contamination. Since then I have run PEAK coolant and have had no problems whatsoever. If you want to pay the extra for the Porsche coolant be
  13. PM me your email and I will give you a DropBox link with a bunch of info on the difference between the VarioCam and VarioCamPlus systems. Theu are quire different. In a nut shell the VarioCam system is a simple advance of the intake cam at a certain RPM and then releases the advance at a higher RPM, and vice versa. The amount of advance is fixed. The VarioCamPlus system has a variable amount of advance and can change the lift of the intake valves. So the control system is entirely different. And the Engine Management System is entirely different between the two to control this, and the lat
  14. Yes. The electrical connector is a simple slip connection. The two fuel line just take a 15mm wrench to losses. Not all cars have this fuel cooler.
