  1. The ignition key module on my 997.1 acted as you described. I think it is the same for your car. A quick DIY replacement corrected it, but then again, this particular problem is well known so you may have already done it. good luck Johan
  2. So great to hear. The guys behind the scene are so often the unsung heroes. Cheers, Johan BTW, you will enjoy the C2S. I’ve had the same yr/model for 11 years.
  3. Been following this thread with interest as I have a 997.1 S with ~120k miles that sometimes does the momentary chain rattle noise on cold startups common to the early air cooled cars. So, how does one diagnose the issue further? What would a Porsche shop likely do? listen with a stethoscope? Do you get a fault code eventually? Is it trail and error? First change the chain tensioner (cheaper alternative) and see if that eliminates the rattle? Johan

    Go to Porsche.com North America, classic car parts and look up numbers on respective PETs.
  5. You had a hydraulic not mechanical clutch. Does the ticking speed increase if you touch the accelerator lightly? Is it there at any time while driving? Johan
  6. Can’t tell model or side from pic. Overflow drain for either WW, brake fluid, gasoline or battery. Take your pick. Johan
  7. 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
  8. 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
  9. Not on my ‘06 C2S. Those are for an ‘02-04 according to theBentley manual. Johan
  10. 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
  11. 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
  12. If not already done so, suggest rechecking fuse amperage against manual rather than what was already in place.
  13. 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
