  1. I have a 2004 996 Targa and the rubber gasket that runs around the top and sides of the windshield pulls away from the top of the glass any time I drive over 50-60 MPH (see the top red arrow in the attached photo). There's also a metal strip running through it that appears to have cracked in half (see the left red arrow in the attached photo). I've searched all over the place, but I cannot seem to find a replacement part... Only random rubber gaskets. Can you guys help with a part number and/or a place where I might be able to get a replacement? Thank you!
  2. Here we go... These photos apply to both motors. Remove these three screws: Here's the gearbox with the cover removed: Here's what it'll look like with the factory grease: Clean up what you can and put in new grease. I was in a hurry, so I didn't pull the gears and I used white lithium grease. I intend to pull it back apart soon and clean everything up properly: Hope this helps.
  3. FYI - I did this tonight and it works great! I took a bunch of photos too. I'll share as soon as I can... Thanks @jay04v6
  4. Thanks, man. But even at 800px horizontal in PNG at 72 DPI the group of photos comes out around 14MB. I'll try to finish up the tutorial with links to photos instead.
  5. I understand. Unfortunately I'm not in a good place right now to contribute financially to anything (hopefully it'll be resolved soon). I'll see if I can find a way to do it with links. Just trying to help others out. Thanks, Loren!
  6. Hey guys, I'm trying to create a tutorial on how to disassemble & repair a noisy secondary air injection pump, but I'm running into the 2MB total photo size limit. I've resized all of my photos so that they're around 200KB each, but I'm still running out of space. I can't resize them to be much smaller because a whole lot of the detail will be lost. Any suggestions? Thanks,
  7. My 2004 Targa just turned 100K miles this week! She's still running like a bat out of hell, too! FWIW, the previous owner replaced the RMS, but the IMS has never been changed. I plan to have it done whenever I get the clutch replaced, but so far I've been keeping my RPMs up and changing my oil regularly with no issues. My clutch was last replaced by the previous owner at around 50K miles, so I'll probably be due for a new one before long. I'm going to ask the shop to hang onto the old IMS bearing for me so I can check it for wear. I'll share my findings.
  8. Hmm. I could certainly give it a try, but it'll have to wait until I can pull out one of my rear belts to get the measurements. I'll let you know!
  9. It just rests in there. There's a groove along the edges that the original piece was molded to fit into. My 3D print has some bits that fit into that same groove to hold it in place.
  10. Thanks! If you already have a 3D printer and filament, it's really only a few cents worth of material to print. If anyone here needs one, I'll happily make one for them for the cost of shipping. Only takes about an hour to print.
  11. If you have a 996 Targa you'll know that the little rubber piece that covers the rear glass' latch tends to degrade and fall apart. I designed a replacement piece that you can 3D print. Just make sure that you use PETG or ABS plastic so it doesn't melt when your car is sitting out in the sun. I'll probably get some filler primer and some matte black paint to make it match the rest of the trim, but I think it turned out pretty well. I don't know how much a genuine replacement costs, but it was a fun little exercise for me. Download for FREE here: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3287876 Enjoy!
  12. Hey guys, 2004 911 Targa owner here. I just changed my oil at ~86,000 miles. I always cut the oil filter open and inspect it for debris - except for the last time when I didn't have time to do it, so I saved the filter and opened it up at the same time as the most recent one. So the debris in the attached photo is actually from TWO separate oil filters/changes. None of the material in the photo is metallic. It all appears to be plastic or maybe some kind of resin. The orange/red stuff is transparent. I'm actually used to seeing the orange/red stuff in my filters after oil changes, but I have no idea what it is. The black particles are relatively new though... I don't recall seeing them in this kind of volume before. I'm not too concerned because none of it is metallic, but there's definitely something shedding some kind of material in my engine that I'd like to track down. Do any of you know what this debris could be? Thanks!
