  1. Ok thanks! Was beginning to worry that no one has done this DIY. I just dont' want to get to a point where I can't go forward or backward.. if you know what I mean..
  2. I posted this on Pelican Parts because I thought Wayne Dempsey may see it there, but didn't get much response... Hi Guys My 2002 996 C4 needs a new starter... I have Wayne Dempsey awesome book 101 Projects for Your Porsche 911. Project 85 seems easy enough -- at least from the descriptions and pictures. But it is listed as Expert Level - 5 wrenches. Now I have very basic skills and tools... I was easily able to change mufflers, and do a window regulator. But I certainly wouldn't do an IMS (another 5 wrench project).. So am I missing something here .. How hard is this project really? Thanks
  3. https://www.renntech.org/loren/images/obc_stalk2.pdf I found this, but don't know if it applies to my 02'. It looks like it was made to install an OBC stalk. MM
  4. So have to remove the steering wheel, etc. Are there any photos of this, where the screws are etc. Thanks MM
  5. I have an 02 C4 Cabriolet. Recently I have noticed a rattling in the steering column. It sounds like there is a loose screw moving around inside. It sounds like it is coming from the section that the wiper and on board computer 'arms' comes out of. When I accelerate or slow down something rattles around inside. Is this a known issue or has anyone ever heard of this problem? How hard is it to disassemble this part of the car to see what is rattling around? THanks Mike
  6. I have a question regarding the 996 control unit under the front seat (996.618.262.03). If I am able to find a replacement unit, can this just be swapped in or does it need re-programming? Thanks Mike
  7. My 02 996 C4 has been kicking out of second gear occasionally. The Porsche dealer did some tests, and then told me I needed a new transmission. This will be done under warranty. Is this a good idea? Is there any down side. Thanks MM
  8. Does anyone know what are the big differences between the Porsche battery maintainer (98061198100), which sells for about $76 bucks, verus the Porsche Charge-o-mat which sells for over $100 dollars. Does it matter which one I get? Thanks
  9. Had a brand new Porsche battery put in by dealer 2 weeks ago. Went to start car today, completely dead. Cannot even pop hood. There has got to be something draining my battery MM
  10. So my 02 996 was consuming oil and I was getting 'oil failure indicator' lights at a regular basis. My dealer took the vehicle and drove it for a week, confirmed oil consumption, confirmed the oil failure indicator lights. Initially they felt I needed a new engine, but Porsche wanted them to put in a a new oil separator. The new oil separator SEEMED to have solved the problem. I had very little oil consumption and no oil failure indicator lights for about 1 month. However in last few days oil consumption has increased and I am again getting 'oil failure indicator' light coming on at random times. Any ideas?!?! my car out of service date is one month. Also, two other problems 1) My vehicle would 'kick' out of 2nd gear sometimes. I bought a B&M sport shifter and had my dealer install it. This SEEMED to solve this problem for a couple months. But now noticing it will kick out of 2nd. Anyone else have this problem?? 2) I am now on my THIRD battery. The original porsche battery became a dead cell after 3 years. I put in a NAPA battery, and this lasted 7 months before going completely dead as well. My dealer just put in a OEM porsche battery to replace this. Is this a symptom of something? The NAPA battery is actually a very good battery so that shouldn't have happened. Thanks for any input MM
  11. No no lumbar support. It is a big spring you can see by just looking under the seat on the passenger side. I think it is to provide some resistance to the seat moving forward and back but I'm not sure. MM
  12. No one can help me with this problem? It should be simple.. Loren?? Thanks MM
  13. So far so good. New oil separator and have not dropped a bar in about 500 km. No oil failure indicator lights either. Here's hoping my oil consumption problem has been solved. I still plan on getting 3 year extended warranty before my out of service dat. MM
