Loren -this DIY was very helpful on my 996. Do you know if the torque specs changed for the 997? I noticed the 997 cat sleeve has a redesigned bolt/nut combo (nuts are now 13mm)? Any assistance would be appreciated! thanks
This is an old thread, but I'm hoping someone can help me... I plan on facelifting my '08 997.1 to 997.2 (both front and rear bumper using OEM LEDs). I got the front conversion all figured out and almost done with the project.. My question is specific to the rear LED tail light wiring: I've read every post I could find on this topic, but it's not clear what needs to be done for a non-turbo models (the most detailed posts were from Turbo & GT2 owners). In summary I have the following: - 997.2 OEM LEDs - 997 618 260 08 updated rear control unit (already has this as mine is a late-model '08) - Waiting to buy 997.2 rear oem bumper (hoping to get the wiring figured out first) From my research, next steps should be: - Code rear control unit to 'LED' option instead of the 'incandescent'...done by dealer w/ PIWIS or Durametric Pro (wish I had one to borrow)! - Swap PINs in front control unit A11 to A36 and A42 to A31). I believe the pins have to be moved from the regular bulb output to the LED output in the front module. My questions are:[/font] - Do I also need to have the front control unit / updated and/or coded for LED? The turbo/GT2 owners did this, but wasn't sure if it's because the front DRL's have LED turn signals or not? One person stated this needed to be done even thought they didn't update front DRLs. - Can anyone confirm if these are the correct PINs to swap., there was also a mention of swapping other PINs, but could be related to front DRLs. Any insight would be greatly appreciated!
These diagrams are great! I cleaned out my rear drains which were clogged as well on my 997 Cab (which I assume uses the same system of drip trays). Now that my tray and drain tube is clean, I wanted to test it - so I carefully poured a good bit of water in side section water channels (#4 in Cab drain diagram) but didn't notice any water flowing into my clean trays- it simply ran out fore & aft the rear wheel. So- the million $ question is - what does the black corrugated tube that ends in the tray shown here attach to up above? What area of the car feeds water that ends up in the trays?
Ahh haa, you got the connections to the vip lists- thanks for sharing...The wiper puller worked great!
Where can I acquire this updated list? Is it the US/Canada version? I just downloaded what Porsche has on their website. Any tips on removing the wiper arm when replacing the cowl (besides buying a wiper puller)? Mine won't budge with the bolt off... Thanks again for the help!
No, that's it, #26! It's not pictured on the USA/Canada PET (06.02.2010) version I have. Where did you find that illustration? I'm guessing its a ROW version since it shows in on drivers side? I'd like the tabs #27 too if you have the #....awesome, thanks!
Thanks for the quick reply. I was referring to the thin cover/flap that covers the cabin filter that is attached to the cowl. I found part # 997-572-763-00 in PET called "cover", thinking this may be the part I'm looking for as the Pos is "-" which I now know means it's not pictured in the illustration".,,
Loren - do you have any idea where I could find the part # for the foam cover (as seen in the first picture by the OP)? I looked in PET and can't find it listed anywhere! The part itself doesn't have a number., I ordered a new Cowl panel and it was not attached. Apparently it's quite the elusive part! Did Porsche forget to list this part maybe? Of are there ancillary parts that just aren't in PET sometimes? Mine is torn and I'd like to replace it along with the my new cowl cover. Thanks!
Did you ever find the part # for the thin foam cover? It's not listed in PET or anywhere I can find. I ordered a new cowl panel and it didn't come with this!
I have a related water issue on my '08 C4 Cab...I just noticed my passenger footwell area is soaked under the carpet (the foam pads), noticed this while removing my bose subwoofer for some new trim. I noticed the AC drain tube is in tact, but it terminates under the car with a grommet attached. There is noting on the other end....however after looking at PET I noticed they show a J-shape "connecting piece" (part #996 573 797 02), which I apparently don't have connected..Has anyone else noticed they have this connecting piece? Is it possible that if mine fell off that the force of driving could allow water to accumulate there? I did notice the drains under my cowl area were blocked up a couple months ago, I cleaned them out - so it's possible it's still wet from water finding it's way into the cabin??
Chad_Pgh replied to AP 997S's topic in 997-1 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 2S, Carrera 4S)Thanks for the tip! After the (-) battery terminal is disconnected, if I put the key in the ignition (and turn) I wonder if it prevent the wheel from locking up?
Chad_Pgh replied to AP 997S's topic in 997-1 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 2S, Carrera 4S)When torquing down the bolt- do you need to hold the wheel or is it ok to apply pressure if column locks up? Wasn't sure if tightening the bolt affected this. Also, any idea what the torque spec is on the 4 torx screws that hold the airbag bracket on? Thanks!
Chad_Pgh replied to darrenmchilton's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)I got my original cans and tip back from Darin @ FD Motorsports and put everything back on this weekend. I gotta say that I'm very happy with the results! I also got everything coated with the velvet back ceramic and it turned out really nice. Most importantly., the sound is awesome! Exactly what I wanted., the car now has a nice tone / growl to it when you open up the throttle (especially with quick revs), however it's not too loud when you ease on the pedal and when cruising at a steady speed on the highway. I put together a quick DIY which includes some before and after pictures as well a guide to install these yourself. Thanks again Darin, another satisfied customer! FD_2003_996.pdf
