creekman replied to msand9898's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)I had a similar problem, but with the right-hand directional light. I thought I've got this licked, just replace the bulb and I'm good to go. Nah... Finally replaced the plastic mounting plate. Pretty pricey for a piece of plastic. Seating that assembly for me is trial and error, then it happens, it seats... I've read all the how to's... In fact while on the Pelican web site tutorial on installing the light assembly they had the rotation of the 5mm socket the wrong way. I've taken a magic marker and labeled the on/off rotation on the inner steel panel.
Thanks, Buford... Best handle yet.😎
Loren is right, the off-set should be your first concern if you're going with a non-standard wheel. Here's a link that explains + and - off-sets. https://search.yahoo.com/yhs/search?hspart=Lkry&hsimp=yhs-SF01&ts=sy&type=RVMC_80801299&obt9bpdyed=0&p=wheel+offset+explained&param1=na3P9yVrJGqvPvCqRup_pzIIq1zthImQpB82c3v2Z8GFZtNE2QOKTAtFHpqUaCiQQYVMyWMQbUzFjqoj9kT-oevPkRD8UkFYRJtNREW7db1hmNExj0Nb5moGbo547bjUCVX6Rk6bkCFD9pyflwPlBxZtkny1HkR_5zEazwRBjvyZiwIuFt_SJSMOzRY_P6-pK6Bmgvq1WS-qGWuFMIypAfpscg%2c%2c
Alex, Whether this is germane to your question, I run 305/30-11"X19" wheels on my '03' C4S. I'm running a center lock conversion with a +37 off-set.
creekman replied to myturbo's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)If I have the correct part I don't see it in the PET Manual... I assume there is the same screw and bushing on the other side? Remove it and go to your favorite hardware store and replicate the bushing. Ace has a good selection of brass tubing, or look at their hoses. I'm sure if you spent enough time at your favorite Porsche dealer you could find your part. All of this depends on your time and need to keep everything original.
We changed out the Trinary switch which is located next to the A/C charging ports. But no joy... I have the A/C relay that goes under the back seat, but I have a back seat delete so its more involved to get to the relay. However all my experiences have been either a relay works or doesn't. The system works great, but I might have to live with this until I can figure it out. The only trouble is here in Texas you don't want to wait 10 minutes for cold air when it's a 100 degrees on a hot August day.
creekman replied to creekman's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)We replaced the pressure plate, disc and throw out bearing while we were there. No idea where the metal came from...
creekman replied to creekman's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Turns out a piece of metal got trapped in the pressure plate... Even though this piece of metal relatively small the clearances between the pressure plate and disc are also very small. This small piece of metal kept the clutch from engaging...
Steel the battery out of your wife's car and with jumpers you're in like Flynn... Also, there are quite a few posts on this subject. There is a search box at the very top of this page...
Loren, I have a 996, I think you're showing me the 997. I really appreciate the help. My 3rd brake light is mounted above the deck lid and the wire goes through the cabin bulkhead never to be seen again. I have the LS3 conversion, but the 3rd brake light was not of any part of the conversion...
Joe, Good thought, but I converted the 3rd brake light to an LED and the plug only goes one way. I bench tested the plug and LED. There's just no power to the plug... Electrical gremlins like this make you crazy, particularly when some of the wiring is buried in the bowels of the car.
Loren, Yes, I'm aware that the junction of VS13 is 3 wires into 1... I'm laboring that during the removal and replacement of the transaxle we disturbed some wiring. That theory is just a shot in the dark. Do you know if the X23 is in the engine room or in the tail light cavity? Thanks, you're the best...
I thought by posting a schematic that someone would know where the junction of VS 13 is in the wiring? Thanks,
No kidding... I am going to change out the Compressor relay and check the radiator fans to be sure they're cycling correctly. My immediate problem is finding out why my 3rd brake light isn't working. I failed my safety inspection so I need to get that fixed, PDQ. See my post on that... Thanks again,
It's good, I can't give you the numbers, but my guy was happy with it... Thanks for your reply,
