Hi, I just connected up my Durametric v6 to my 996 C2 MY1999. All is well apart from one fault code under Seat Memory: It reads: "Current Fault Codes: 2: Control Unit Faulty (main relay does not pick up)" The seat memory seems to working fine. I cannot clear the code using the Durametric. Anyone seen this before?
All three words were paragraphed then Lauren. Go ahead and delete by all means :-)
Use the iPad browser here - no need for mobile mode.Hmm. I'm using the stock Safari browser on an iPad 3 - I'm in 'full' mode, not 'mobile'.
I did actually paragraph that but posting from an iPad seems to remove the formatting. Grrr.
Thanks for taking the time to post this - I've been waiting for someone to do it! I've got a '99 C2 with the single din cupholders in slot 1, single din usb Pioneer in 2, cubby hole in 3 and hvac in 4.Obviously I'd have to lose the cupholders and I need to check whether my Pioneer can power an iPad - it juices my iPhone no problem but I know you need a higher output for the iPad. Do you use your iPad to play back music stored on it? How easy is it to remove from the car and take indoors to sync, etc? Thanks - looking forward to any updates!
Just as an update, I recently changed from Mobil 1 0w40 to Fuchs Titan Supersyn Longlife 5w40 - no more mayo in the filler neck.
Thanks Loren Do you think it worth changing the bearings with the top mounts? I can only find part numbers for C4 top mount bearings - could you let me know the part number for my 99MY C2 man coupe? Thanks again
So, I'm getting the M030 kit for my 99 C2 Coupe 996 in a few days. The car's done 110k and I'd like to refresh the suspension, hopefully also fixing an annoying but elusive pot-hole knocking in the process. I'm hoping to do it myself. I've recently replaced both front lower arms (fixed annoying squeaks) and have rears to go on when the M030 is fitted. I also have replacement drop links to go on too. The Indy suggests I replace the top mounts too - can anyone confirm the part numbers for these? I'm a bit confused - for example, my suspension is stock at the moment so AFAIK has 99734301801 front mounts. I was going to order new ones but note that against this part number it says "fits Porsche 996 C2 1998-05 (without sport suspension)". Of course I soon will have sports suspension, so what mount fits? And if those mounts are no good why don't Porsche make you change them when you fit the M030? Confused..
Good work! I think I would be in the 'undecided' camp too. I wish my front and rear 996 lights were better but also like to keep the car stock...
le bouch replied to boldstep's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)I can't see the video link but the rubbers fold in on my 1999 C2 coupe as described..
Ok.... Have now managed to get the rubber grommet / end piece back up and out, but in the process it's come off the actual drain tube. Grrrr! Looking at the diagram the other end of the tube seems to emerge in the LH wheel arch. Is that the only access? Am I best off pulling the pipe out from that end and starting again?
Having difficulty pulling it up from the top ( have tried all manner of long nosed pliers, forceps, etc) - is there access to the rubber drain from underneath the car?
