Karl996 replied to Karl996's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Update - the blowing of air did not solve the problem so I guess there's n choice but to replace the switch and/or resistor. Anyone no the part numbers for this ? Thanks in advance Karl
Karl996 replied to Karl996's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Gentlemen Thank you for the responses. I laughed reading the frunk, bonnet, hood comments. The interesting thing is despite the comments we all knew what I was referring to. @ Loren - thank you as always. I'll give it a try when I get to the factory this afternoon. @ Wildbilly - thanks for the info/thoughts. That will be next on the list if Loren's suggestion doesn't work. Related question - does anyone have a part number for the resistor and/or switch ? I've searched but really cannot find anything. Thanks in advance
Gentlemen Car in question is a 2002 C2, Manual. Right Hand Drive if that matters. For some time now the front hood can only be released by using the button on the key fob. The switch on the side sill does not release at all. The switch for the engine compartment however works fine. I'm not sure whether its the switch, the actuator release (but it works when using the key fob) or something else. Would much appreciate some advice on how to go about trouble shooting this and changing the relevant part. Thanks in advance Karl
Gentlemen Thank you for all your responses. I've managed to fix it and thought I would do a DIY if anyone is interested.
Ahsai - many thanks for your suggestions. I've found the issue. Took the right rear wheel off and had a good look around. I found the ends of the speed sensor and brake pad wear indicator wires. What I did not find was the connector which they need to plug into !!!!!! It almost looks like it's been chewed off. I guess the answer now is to get the ABS harness repair kit and wire it in. Does anyone know if you need to cut and splice the wires together or does it connect somewhere. I only managed to trace the wire into wheel we'll and it the disappears. Thanks again
I should also add a point 4.5 4.5 - the brake pad service light did not go out after the pad change
Karl996 posted a topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Apologies - I posted this in the 996 Turbo section so reposting in the right section. Gentlemen Looking for some help on a part number and/or advise. Car is a 2002 996 C2 Manual WITHOUT PASM. There is a bit of history to my question so please be patient. 1. I had the brake pad warning light coming on intermittently for a couple of weeks. 2. It then stayed on permanently and I changed out the all the brake pads. 3. I also gave the wheel arches a really good wash 4. DID not change the brake pad warning indicator wires as they all looked ok. In fact the brake pads still had some life on them. 5. 2 weeks after changing the brake pads I had an ABS Failure warning light which is permanently on. Ran a Durametric scan and it tells me that P0501 (Porsche Fault Code 120) - Vehicle Speed and 4210 Rear right speed sensor - op. circ./GND/+ short. In hindsight I should have realised that the intermittent pad warning was probably electrical/electronic. My questions are as follows: 1. Do you think the 2 issues are related and 2. If I do change the right rear wheel sensor I'm a bit confused about the part number required. I've researched and come across 996 60640702 which says front without PASM and also 996 60640600 but that says rear and NO mention of PASM. I'm also going to change out the brake pad warning indicators at the same time. Many thanks in advance and regards Karl
Loren Apologies for the very very delayed reply. As always thanks a million. I researched some more after what you told me and realised there are different shrouds depending on which way the radiator is positioned and which bumper. In the interim I've cleaned out the radiators, put the bumper back on and installed my ROW M030 suspension. Not I will have to figure out the correct shroud.
Hi Loren Thanks for the response. Not doubting at all what you are saying but I do not have the cutouts per the picture attached. Apologies but I used the picture from your DIY and put a red rectangle over what I am referring to. I am really not sure what the effect would be if I did or did not have these cutouts. Thanks in advance and regards Karl
Gentlemen I have a related question to this install. I have a GT3 RS front bumper. The one with 3 cutouts ABOVE where the centre radiator would fit. I notice that cars with the centre radiator have outlets cut at the BOTTOM of the bumper. I guess given the angle of the radiator when installed that this is to vent the air out of the bumper enclosure. My question is this. Do you think it would work for me if I installed the 3rd radiator and DID NOT cut out the bottom of the bumper. Car in question is a 2002 996 C2. Thanks in advance karl
For 1. Try 996 521 315 01 A03 - The A03 represents the colour. In my case black. This is for the hardback sports seats.
Gentlemen Some help please. My drivers door has been randomly refusing to open - from both inside and outside. Very frustrating as it means I gave to climb in from the passenger side each time this happens. Lucky I'm only 5" 6'. I believe it is the micro switches and I have ordered the part. Today the door refuses to open at all. My question is this. Will I be able to get the door panel off without the door being open ???? I suspect the answer is negative which will be devastating for me. Help please.
Karl996 replied to johonole's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Chuck You wouldn't by any chance have a part number for just the flap ? Thanks in advance
So here's the update - which I am not proud of :( After 2 hours of trying last night (with a friend who is a mechanical engineer) I had to admit defeat and surrender. There was no way I was going to get the alternator out. Decided to put everything back together. At least I have a new drive belt and can say I've worked on the rear of the car for the 1st time :D
