  1. It would take less than 10 minutes to drop the oil and put new oil in....if nothing else do that and change the filter later. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Can you hear the air pump turn on and off. Vacuum problems could be an issue and I thought outside temp was a factor for the secondary air pump. Just a guess.... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Not that I can see, but I haven't read to many of these. Have you done an inspection of the parts? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. You mentioned that you had codes for misfires in another post. I would start there. Recheck with your brand new Durametric and then start with the cylinders that are miss firing. Check coilpacks and spark plugs and wiring for corrosion and freying of wires. Bypass above is also a great suggestion to check and make sure is fully actuating. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. I would agree with Loren on this one. Could be done, but you would need to trim the bottom of the new lid, reseal it, smooth it out and repaint. If your looking for a rear upgrade the new led tail lights/third brake lights and a new style bumper would be less hassle and would be almost guarantee to look right.

  6. I would delete all the faults and see what comes back. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. Lol. Maybe no spare, but tire sealant. Not sure on the 991. I think there are a few different locks, so you will probably need to go to the dealer. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. It's normally with the spare and the tools. A dealer would have one. http://www.porscheownersmanuals.com/2012-911-carrera-manual/6/236/Wheel-Bolts Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. The control unit is on the back of the headlight. http://m.ebay.com/itm/311754938368?_mwBanner=1 Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. There is an angle reader on each suspension arm. I would check the wiring to each one and make sure that they are connected properly. They have a little arm attached to them. Given the history of your car take each connector off and clean it with contact cleaner as they may have rusted and shorted out. If that doesn't work take each headlight out and check the connections at each headlight. Maybe a similar issue with a connection problem at the headlight. Next would be the module that manages the system. I will see if I can find where that is. Maybe it's damaged. Start with the sim
  11. Check drain using a meter. If you need the door open close the latch so that it thinks the door is closed. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. Oh. That's good to know. Then my plan would be the same as yours. Find something decent and rebuild it. Then swap and sell the old. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. Probably another thread. You might need to pick up a durametric diagnostics tool to be able to find solutions to some of these. Did you get a good deal? It's a 2011 with 19k miles.... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. I would say they probably don't have them. This diagram I found shows that you would need more connections. I believe the blue wire set is for the seatbelt. And maybe the others are for something else. Do the seats have an airbag? Are there any part numbers on the seats? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. That's awesome! As for the seat heaters your car came with them as the dash board has the switch. The tough part is going to be determining if the seat has them. Let me do some research and see what I can find. I remember seeing a thread on this somewhere that helped me when I was dealing with my issues. Keep searching and I will also do some checking. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  16. I thought about doing this as well, but would like the engine numbers to match. Maybe that's crazy and no one would care? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  17. Turbo yes; non turbo maybe Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  18. Check and make sure the red and brown wires in the yellow are connecting to the red and brown in the black. The yellow one should have power so start checking fuses. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  19. Take the big brown and red wires in the black connector and connect them to the red and brown in the black seat connector and the recline should work. Check fuses as they may have been removed. I think the yellow blue is seatbelt , but not entirely sure. Trace them back on the seat from the seatbelt connector. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  20. That large black plug needs power and ground and the recline should start working. The others look like memory, heat and seatbelt, but you will need to start tracing and testing unless you can find some part numbers to figure out what seats they are and find some wiring diagrams. What connectors do you have under the seat that are attached to the car? Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  21. Mine were similar. Not power movement front to back, but power tilt/recline. Yours look like they might have seat heaters and memory. Can you take a side shot? I managed to get mine to start working, but had to re-wire a few things. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  22. Aftermarket coils are not worth the risk, and I'm not sure I have seen many options besides Beru. I'm not sure on the part number. Someone else will chime in. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
