  1. Been having problems with intermittent brake wear light and found the plug where the speed sensor and brake wear sensor plug in to be cracked and breaking up. After a search found a topic where Loren found a wiring repair kit for these plugs but for the rear. Need part numbers for the front part repair kits. 1999 carrera tip coupe. Thanks in advance and pic.
  2. So it can be done without draining the engine?? I drained the engine when I changed the expansion tank, just had to bleed for a while, wasn't that bad. But if it can be done without draining the engine id rather go that way..
  3. Hello: Looking for part number of engine temperature sensor for 1999 996. Also does the coolant have to be drained from the engine to change it??? TIA.....
  4. Well final news on this was that the alternator was bad and not getting repaired properly. Got a new alternator all is good. Thank you logray and Loren for all your help!!!
  5. Will check all of these. Thank you so much logray. Im pretty sure the end of this is coming.
  6. Ok I replaced the cable problem is still there. The alternator checked ok. Everything in the battery compartment looks good and tight. Where is the engine to ground cable?? Anything else I can check??
  7. Thanks guys I'll get to work on this and will let you know how it turns out.
  8. Here are 2 pics. One of the cable and a close up of where its corroded at the starter.
  9. That is the problem i've been having. Dealer said the same thing. I have a cable that goes from the alternator to the starter where it is joined to the cable that goes to the jump terminal. It is really corroded at the starter area. Ill take a pic and post it maybe that will help figuiring out how I can order this. While I was reading the post again saw this picture. This one looks different its joined at the terminal where mine is joined at the starter. Cable 15-24. Will post a picture in a few hours.
  10. Does anyone have the part number for this cable (21/22) I need to change it. For a '99 tip. TIA.
  11. Loren: Sorry for sounding so stupid... . Just this last question. The pulley that has the bolt that holds the alternator in place the one u have to hammer to loose the bearing. That is the one I need. Im thinking this one is 48 ftlbs from what u wrote above. Am I correct? I did the p0410 repair and replaced 2 idler pulleys, the one mentioned on top and the one right after the tension roller that bolts to the crankcase(think this is the one is 34ftlbs) and the belt while I was doing it. Im getting a weird noise at really high rpms like a roller is rubbing or something. Just want to make sure everything is tightened up correctly. They roll fine when the belt is off. If it makes it any easier to answer my question the rollers I replaced are number 8 and number 3 in this picture. From ur reply im thinking 8 is 34ftlb and 3 is 48ftlb?? Just want to make sure im understanding correctly. Thanks a ton and sorry for not understanding so easily....
  12. Specifically what I need from the polyrib belt change are torques for Number 3 and number 8 rollers. For a tip car.... thanks loren u rock.....
  13. Loren: Forgot to mention. Are these the same for tiptronic. For some reason parts are listed different for manual or tip. I have a tip..... Thanks........
  14. Does anyone have the torques for the belt idler rollers bolts. Upper and lower.. thanks in advance..
