  1. I've had an issue with my '01 TT for a little while now. The front end occationally feels loose and vague in regards to steering feel. The weird part is, it isn't always consistent. It usually takes some rough/uneven pavement at highway speeds (55-65+?) and all of a sudden steering feedback sort of gets more numb, and I can move the steering wheel back and fourth with somewhat of a lag in response. Another symptom that is probably related, is the steering wheel tends to have vibrations in it more than normal. I don't feel the vibration driving around normal roads, only highway speed. In an ef
  2. Didn't find any TT or awd specific posts regarding this, so I was hoping I could get a quick walk through of the front control arm replacement procedure. My car is an '01 996TT. I found this, and the control arm and track arm look very similar in the picture so I am guessing it is closely resembling ours? ( http://kevingosselin.blogspot.com/2009/08/boxster-control-arm-replacment-in-total.html ) But that link doesn't deal with any front half shafts. Do I need to remove the hub assembly to do my front control arms? Should I have new CV boots/clamps standing by? Thanks for any pointers! -Conn
  3. Putting in an order for some front suspension parts today, and I just want to make sure I have the correct sway bar bushings. I believe it is these, but since GT2 is in parenthises I'm not sure if they actually mean it is for a turbo or not. Can anyone tell for sure? http://www.pelicanparts.com/cgi-bin/smart/more_info.cgi?pn=996-343-792-16-M100&catalog_description=&Front%2520Sway%2520Bar%2520Bushing%252C%2520Stock%2520Rubber%2520%2528%2532%2520per%2520car%252C%2520sold%2520individually%2529%252C%2520%2539%2539%2536%2520GT%2533%2520%2528%2531%2539%2539%2539%252D%2530%2535%2529%252C%252
  4. Hey guys, I'm trying to figure out an issue in my TT. Boost delivery isn't as smooth as it used to be. Under constant throttle application (lets say half throttle) boost will hold at .4bar for a number of seconds when it should really be building up, and then all of a sudden it jumps up to 1.2bar and takes off. Occationally it will jump up to 1.5 bar and hold until I let off (I don't hold it for long, and I try to avoid this). I've got an EPL K16 flash set for 1.2 bar, so 1.5 is overboosting. And then, sometimes I just can't get up to the 1.2 bar...it will max out at .8-.9 occationally. So fa
  5. Is there any update to this? To bleed the system, you simply add 5mL to each ram, then tighten the banjo? Do you need to remove the rams from the car? I have a leak coming from my drivers side ram, from the banjo on the bottom. It seems like the copper washers are bad. Does anybody know where I can get those washers? Thanks, Connor
  6. Yea, I felt pretty dumb missing this! So D1-D3 are redundent fuses? I saw those fuse descriptions first, and stopped there. Anyway, taking out the current distributer wasn't such a big deal. Learned a bit about the car. I'm just glad it all works correctly again. -Connor
  7. Finly fixed it. I removed the current dist earlier and all fuses were fine. Checked them for continuity and they all passed. So not knowing what else to do, i began pulling every fuse in the drivers side compartment. C3, a 15 amp was blown. Huh...put a new one in and bingo problem solved. I'll check in a little while but I am not even sure what C3 is described to power. Thanks for the help guys. Connor
  8. Hey guys, im not having any luck finding the current dist. I had my head burried under the pass side dash and there arent any fuses visable. Took off a plastic cover to find the blower motor for the vents. Any input on this? How do I get the repair manual you refer to above? Thanks, Connor
  9. For a little while now, my passenger side window has not been dropping down to allow the door to open/close. So I bought the microswitch and went to install it on saturday. Well, it wasn't until after I had the door panel off that I realized I don't have the triple square bit to remove the latch assembly NO worries, I'll put it back together and do the fix after I pick up the correct tool. So after the door panel is back together, I fire it up and notice: 1- the power windows don't work 2- sunroof doesn't work 3- rear defroster doesn't work 4- map lights don't work. Now, what
