I read the DIY tutorial for coolant reservoir bottle replacement for the 99 model. Anyone know there are any differences compared to an 01 model? .
Are there any differences between the 99 in this DIY compared to an 01 cabriolet.
j-mann replied to Feroz's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Welcome. Pretty new to the forum as well. Purchased a 2001 Cab (Rainforest Green / Savanna) 3 months ago. Absolutely love these cars. Has previous 911 - '77, '79, '87 - all great fun. Love the history of the marque. Sounds like you have a nice color combo - enjoy J
It seems like I need to remove the rear seat backs, then the rear seat back center mount, then the vertical rear panel and that should give me access to 2 screws for the cover that runs the whole width of the car. Does this sound about right - anyone done this?
I had a similar situation whereas I just purchased (December '11) an '01 996 Cabrio. I went ahead and did the IMS upgrade and clutch while we were there. I Love my new car and feel good to have the upgrade since I plan to keep the car long term.
I have a 2001 Carrera Cab. The rear piece that covers the pop-up roll bars is loose on the driver side. I have accessed an online repair manual that says to remove the interior rear trim behind the rear seat backs. The manual says to simply remove the two screws hold the trim panel and then "detach the auxilarry frame" (don't know what that means). Once the panel is out, I should be able to see the fasteners that hold the roll-over cover in place. Has any one had experience with removing this cover or the interior trim? Any help appreciated, Thanks j-mann
