  1. OK, now I see. I just happened to see discs which didn´t have the drawing! Thanks
  2. Hi, I tried to find the technical drawings, but couldn´t locate them. Could you post a link?
  3. And if I have a 1998 Boxter, do Boxter S rear calibers (or maybe 996 from 98-03) fit?
  4. Richard, Is there a BIG difference with fuel maps. If here is a minimal difference, I don´t mind... But what worries me, is that you say the alarm module is coded differently. What do you mean exactly? Kare
  5. The combo what I was offered, has the same pin-layout (although the seller states the year is 2000) than my car. maybe the model year is 1999? So it should fit?
  6. Hi I checked the diagnostic line wire, and it´s perfect, no corrosion,and resistance as it should be. The inmobilizer /alarm unit has a fuse and it was Ok, with clean contact points. So, back to the original question (as it looks like the alarm unit is faulty?), could I swap the other DME/Alarm/key transponder unit to my car, althoug the other car was a tiptronic? My car is manual 1998.
  7. Hi I have a 98 Boxter with 3.4 engine on it. Suddenly the car doesn´t start. First the car was cranking, but not firing. Now it doesn´t even crank. With Durametric I got the following codes: 49 k line 10 no current at 30 36,34 and 33 interior senor 42 not correct key or transponder 23 w line 47 locking syncronizing 21 inmobilizer line w It´s difficult for me to bring the car to the Porsche (long distance), could I use the DME, and matching key transponder/inmobilizer combo from other car? I found one, that is from year 2000 from 996 to swap them over ? This RoW version, and my engin
  8. Hi guys, I bought a 3.8 997 S engine, and it came with flywheel and clutch. The pressure plate and clutch were loose, and I want to install them. I did it once already, but the clutch disk is slipping.The parts are with no noticeable wear. I know the pressure plate is self-adjusting, and after done some searching I couldn´t find instructions how to install it. I hope the plate was properly removed... I suppose I must reset the pressure plate self adjusting mechanism somehow, what is the correct procedure? Many thanks! Kare
  9. What youmena by "catless headers"? You mention you have the cats fitted... As far as I know you don´t need to reprogram the comuter (unless it was done wrong). Any fault codes present? Kare
  10. Hi It´s very difficult to estimate the damage by the photos. Remember the Porsche parts are very expensive (just Porsche makes them), especially for the bodywork. 15.000 $ is nothing in your project, plus the labor. Apart from sheetmetal parts, there are numerous hoses and other bits and pieces you will need, and they are not cheap. Of course you can try to search used parts, but that´s a long way to go, and will take a while... Good luck! Kare, Spain
  11. Are you sure the timing is right? I just remember, that once one bank is set for right timing, the engine needs to be rotated 360º to set the other bank...otherwise the cycle (compression/exhaust etc.) is not correct (it might on reverse now). Saludos, Kare
  12. I forgot to mention, the one on the right picture is vinyl. A vinyl panel doesn´t have stiching on it, and the vinylpart is one of piece... Kare
