    996 C2
  1. I think i managed to get rid of the sound now, at least i haven't heard it since latest fixes. This is what I did: Sprayed inner tie rod balls with silicon grease and then applied a PTFE based grease (Super Lube). Applied copper paste on coffin arm contact surface to frame, and re-torqued. Re-torqued subframe bolts to chassis. Weather has changed to colder.
  2. Same, or similar, issue here. I have replaced all control arms (cup style with eccentric center bushing), and just installed M030 kit with new strut mounts and bearings. Also new swaybar droplinks. And still the car sounds like a wooden ship when going over small bumps at low speeds or cornering fast while inner wheel has suspension travel. I replaced inner and outer tie rods (TRW) about 5k miles / a year ago, but i guess they could be bad already. I don't remember this sound during winter time, so maybe it has something to do with the temperature indeed. I'll report back if i find somethi
  3. 154k miles. 996 C2 registered 1997. No service book, and I just bought the car so I have no idea really if it is the original engine still.
  4. Hi I just bought a 996 C2 with CR-21 and had to unplug the battery for door panel removal. I didn't realize the CR-21 would require a code afterwards, and unfortunately the previous owner never had to deal with that so no code. Highly appreciated if Loren can help, this is what i got from the unit: Becker R 2097 V5007232 Thanks,
