Uwon replied to dcapper's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)OK. You got me. What is an OBC stalk? TIA Johan
The sticky ignition switch replacement is definitely a DIY item. Quite easy, actually. Search here, on Pelican, Rennlist, and/or Utube for the procedure. Sunset and Suncoast usually have the best prices. Good luck. Johan
Uwon replied to BigEd05's topic in 997-1 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 2S, Carrera 4S)I really do not understand this thread. What “module” was blown? Why does the removal of headlights clear the problem of blowing the “module”? Why not just disconnect the battery? Johan
Not on my ‘06 C2S. Those are for an ‘02-04 according to theBentley manual. Johan
2006 C2S, US car purchased in USA and brought into Canada by me. OK, I feel really dumb. I’ve been staring at the list of fuses in the little booklet stored in the fuse block cover-nothing even comes close, at least to me, that would resemble a headlight and/DRL fuse. What am I missing? Please see pic below. TIA Johan

2006 C2S I now have the Durametric Pro which I understood could change the DLR from headlights to fog lights. I downloaded the latest software but cannot find anything relevant. Any suggestions? thanks in advance. Johan
Uwon replied to RJ'sGottaDrive's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)If not already done so, suggest rechecking fuse amperage against manual rather than what was already in place.
What assurance do you have that the car was not damaged and wrapped to hide a bad repair job? A wrap is not as permanent as factory paint. You will have to deal with it’s deterioration at some point. If the paint flakes off then it’s not factory. IMO the wrap would have to come off and paint inspected as a pre-condition. Otherwise run as fast as you can. Johan
Uwon replied to Matk's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Year and model would be helpful (base, turbo, and, etc). Is it still leaking and from where? Front, back, which side, etc? did you recently ad oil or had the car serviced? Have you started it since and driven it? You sure the leak is from the car and not the lawnmower that you may have rolled across the garage? Johan
First thing is to get a Certificate of Authenticity through Porsche North America. google and Porsche web site will be your friend. The certificate will tell you the color, options, etc. Post some pics of your car. This will help to get some feedback for you to consider. Cheers, johan
As well, the rear spoiler appears to be misaligned vis-a-vis the deck lid. Likely an alignment job for an experienced body man. Good luck. Johan
Uwon replied to Uwon's topic in 997-1 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 2S, Carrera 4S)I’m probably at least 4 inches from the top!! Isn’t the 996 and 997.1 clutch mechanism the same?
Uwon replied to Uwon's topic in 997-1 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 2S, Carrera 4S)Loren, I’ve had similar experience with my old 911 which I also tracked extensively. I do change the brake fluid by-annually (and slave bleeding) last one this spring, with no change in pedal feel nor engagement. From your comment, are you suggesting that my pedal engagement should be higher than 2.5-3.0 inches from the floor? Do these clutches finally granade without warning or do they gradually make first gear engagement progressively more difficult from a standing start? I just am unfamiliar as to what I’m likely to expect.
2006 C2S, All highway driving. From past experience with my cars, I know that I am gentle on my clutch/trani. 108,000 miles on original clutch. Pedal travel is still 2.5-3.0 inches from floor to start of engagement. I do not think that pedal effort has increased. Am I on borrowed time? Thoughts? Thanks in advance. Johan
