  1. Thanks! I ended up taking mine to the dealer based on my schedule/prioritization of my time. Glad this is done now. No more teakettle sound and no more fears about burning Pentosin (and a burning 996TTS)!
  2. Hi guys, I didn't have any time this morning to do a search, so forgive me in advance if this has been answered, but can someone give me an idea of how complicated it is to install the reservoir and what is involved in doing so? I'm trying to determine whether I should do it myself or schedule it do be done by someone else...and the part should arrive today. Thanks for your help. Chris
  3. For whomever reads this thread in the future, the latest part number for the reservoir is 997.314.920.31 as of 6/19/14. I ordered the part from Sunset today.
  4. Before I get into my post, I want to re-introduce myself to Renntech forums. I spent time on here in 2006/2007 when I had an '02 996, then an '02 C4S, but have been focusing more on my early 911 and 914 over the last several years. I recently purchased an '05 996 Turbo S, and I'm going through the process of acclimating myself to the car and troubleshooting some problems. Thanks in advance for welcoming me back, and for any assistance. So far, there have been a handful of small things that I have been able to fix with my car, but there's a sound I noticed and don't feel good about....
  5. Another vote for Darin here. I contacted him last week after reading this thread, then drove out to his place yesterday morning for the mod on my '02 C4S. Darin is a great guy, the job was quick, and my car now growls the way it should.
  6. My '02 C4S Coupe has Bilstein PSS9's installed by the previous owner. I bought the car in 2007 with these already installed and only 30K miles on the odo, and have since put just 6K on it myself. For the last several months, the car has been in and out of my mechanic's shop in an attempt to eradicate various causes of a noisy front suspension. First, the problem was a "creaking" sound caused by broken/deteriorated upper front strut mounts, which my mechanic replaced. That seemed to solve the problem until a couple of months later, when I started to hear a "binding" sound--actually the opposi
  7. Absolutely agreed on all points. This is a first-class site, and its existence is much appreciated. Chris
  8. FWIW, I had the same experience with my 2002 C2 Coupe, and now my 2002 C4S does it as well. It's something I have learned to live with. I guess it's just part of the Porsche "character".
  9. Thanks, guys. I finally had the time and the courage to pull a little harder, and I was able to remove both mirrors to get rid of the buzz/rattle. Chris
  10. Thanks, Loren. This may sound like a silly question, but is there only one set of metal clips, toward the outside of the car, behind each mirror, or does each mirror have two sets of clips? I'm only asking because I have pulled, and the mirror glass won't seem to come out. Thanks again. Chris
  11. Hi all, I have an annoying rattle (buzz is probably a more accurate description) coming from the passenger's side rearview mirror on my 02C4S. I have searched the forum and noted that removing the glass should be pretty simple: just grab and pull. However, I have tried a couple of times and I am worried that I am going to break something. It's hard to get fingers in behind the mirror to grab and pull, and even a moderate tug results in nothing. If I pull harder, will I break it? In the meantime, I tried spraying some silicone lubricant behind the mirror glass, aimed at where the little tab
  12. You have already reached the pinnacle of car ownership with the 911. You have to be committed for the long haul. This problem is most likely just the car trying to get your attention and let you know that it is in charge. Car: "Who's your daddy now, huh???!" You: "You are." Enjoy! Chris
  13. AVIA8R, Thanks for the tip. I was not aware of such an item. I'll look into it. Happy New Year. Chris
