  1. Trying to replace my front rotors on my 2004 TT. I can't seem to remove the bracket. I first took the screw off, but it wouldn't move. I next took off the nut, still couldn't get it off. I tried prying it off with a screwdriver between the bracket and housing. Without a lift I can't get a good look. Is there anything else? Any tricks? Thanks
  2. I'm missing one of the small bushings that a screw goes into to secure the climate control unit into the console. Is this part available?
  3. Any help with the location of these relays in cabriolet? Is it also next to the DME?
  4. Thanks. What is the technique to prying the back off? I'm stuck with the clip that seems to be at the yellow arrow. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G930A using Tapatalk
  5. The tab Ddavidoff shows is on the front bezel. I am trying to split it at the yellow arrow below. I did give it a shot with the credit card on the front bezel. It didn't come off, but I haven't given up on that one.
  6. I am trying to replace the time adjust selector on my 996's speedo. Referencing the pic below, I removed the two screws (red lines), clips on the mounting ears (green lines), and released the lower clasps (blue lines). The front piece peels away at the bottom and the sides, but seems to be stuck at the top section. What is holding it on there? Are the yellow circles clips? I'm reluctant to put too much leverage on the plastic piece
  7. With regard to the motor running after the spoiler is up or down, I noticed that on the bench when I was bleeding. I noticed that I had to run the pump much longer, before it it stopped during bleeding, than I did when the rams were connected and ran their full motion. I haven't taken the pump apart, nor am I experienced with the turbo spoilers, but here is my guess. I think there is a lot more displacement in the pump that is required in the rams. I think this is so that there is some allowed room to pump beyond what is required. Let me try to explain with an example using arbitrary numbers. If the total travel of the pump is 10", and full ram motion requires only 6". This means that there is 2" at either end that is not normally used for full transit of the rams. However, if the ram micro switch does not turn off the pump at the required 6" excursion, it may take up some of that 2" cushion to make the additional displacement. If one direction only needs 6", while the other direction needs 6.2", you will eventually chew up the 2" cushion. Any thoughts on this?
  8. I know the rams are not rebuildable, but is there a solution for the pump assembly?
  9. I've got a spoiler that otherwise operates as it should, but throws a failure light to the dash. I've moved, stopped and measured the height of the spoiler at each end at several positions in transit with no issues. Iv'e bled the system. There are no visible leaks. The only thing left are the micro switches. I assume this is the only signal to the DME (that is, assuming the current to the motor is not monitored). Having understood the system as I described it, am I correct to assume the micro switches are the only other thing left? Here is how I expect the microswitches work. The lower one closes a circuit when the spoiler is all the way down causing the motor to turn off. The upper one opens the circuit indicating that the ram is all the way deployed and shuts off the motor. Can I pull out the microswitches from their housing and operate them manually while someone operates the switch in the cockpit? Any other suggestions?
  10. Not sure what else might be holding the Y-tube in. Removed the 2 bolts Removed the 2 hoses from the turbos Removed the small L-shaped hose to the MAF's nipple Removed the hose under the left turbo pipe Loosened the rear most hose clamp. Did not loosen the front one on the coupler hose Do I need to loosen both clamps that feed forward? Is there anything else holding the Y-tube in place? d
  11. When I went to pull the fuse panel in order to apply power to the studs, I saw this little red slider with a hood icon on it. I pulled it out and simply attached 12v to it and popped my hood. Thank you clever Porsche engineers.
  12. My battery is totally dead. How do I open the hood to change the battery?
  13. I recently changed my oil in my 996 tt. I drained both the engine and the reservoir (not the turbos) after warming up the engine. I bought two 5qt bottles of Mobil 1, poured one quart into a one quart container and put the rest in the car. I warmed up the car and checked the oil level, and the indicator is solid. Any thoughts on whether this is only a half quart high, or could this be more? I can live with the half a quart, but I don't know how this could be much more than that?
  14. Hi, I like your idea. I'm in the UK so liftbars shipping would be sky high. What gauge box section did you use? 

  15. I broke the locking portion of a similar connector. Is this part available at Porsche or other electronic supply houses?
