    2004 911 Carrera c2 manual
  1. I bought a heavy duty large c-clamp and tried it. It didn’t work on my bolts. I then went to a machine shop and they heated and hammered them out for $20. Thanks everyone for your support on this issue. I'm so glad I got this resolved quickly.
  2. Wow okay RFM. Thanks for the info. Seems like you removed these bolts before. Is a hydraulic press easier or the torch and hammer is the preferred method? I may try to find a machine shop that would do it for me if the torch method is still difficult. Do you think a big steel C clamp could do the trick, without torching?
  3. My catalytic converter bolts are in bad shape and I want to replace them. These bolts seemed to be welded onto the cat. Have any of you ever removed these? Do you know how I will get these off without damaging the cat?

  5. I have some questions regarding the Clutch Bleeding portion of this tutorial. How do you know if you need to bleed your clutch? Are there signs that this needs to be done? 3 weeks ago I bled my brakes with the Motive Power Bleeder but I didn't do the clutch bleeding. Should I go back and do this? Or is there a test I can do to know if my clutch needs to be bled? I have a 2004 996 with manual transmission. And just so I get a better understanding...the clutch uses brake fluid and the brake system master cylinder to operate? Thanks in advance. Both the clutch and the

  7. Hi everyone. I just called my local tire shop to purchase some rears (285/30/R18 Pirelli P Zero Rosso N4 Porsche Spec) for my 996 and they told me that they are going to be discontinuing this tire next year. Has anyone else heard the same? Just for thoughts, what will you ride for a daily driver tire (wet/dry performance?)
  8. I did an oil change on my 2004 996 Carrera using the correct amount of Porsche specified oil about 1,500 miles ago. Now after running and car and letting the oil settle back to the oil pan the dash computer level and dipstick are reading the same. The oil level is half way from the min/max levels. I know that the oil level is in the acceptable range now, but is considered having low oil? The reason why I am asking is because I brought my car to get diagnosed (and fixed) for a faulty oil pressure sending unit problem that occurs rarely when the dash warning pops up saying oil failure a
  9. Hi All, I have a question that has been bugging me. I just purchased a 2004 911 carrera that has the 12 way power/ memory seats. The mirrors and seats move electronically. The problem I am having trouble doing is setting up the reverse mirror tilt. I just went to the local Porsche dealer and they said that they didn't have that function in the USA models in 2004 996's and they received them in future 911 models for the USA. Is that true? My manual says it should be programed and gives instructions but I cannot get it to work. Dealer said it was for European models only. Please
