hmm that sounds more like the first problem i had few years back.... this time its the push rod right behind the clutch pedal which broke, i hope it has something to do with the way they repaired last time which cause the alignment to be off and therefore crack.
ok one more bit of info to add, so maybe i can get some more knowledge before I go to the dealer on monday. 2 years ago I had an oil leak, when I took it in they found a leak at the crankshaft seal. on my invoice it says "during replacement of flywheel seal found shifter fork was broken, cause: slave cylinder rod cracked and wore release fork at contact area. replaced the clutch slave cylinder" I'm hoping this has something to do with the problem I currently have so they may give me a break with the repair?
Hello guys, got a question and hopefully can get some advice. car has 52Kmiles and is a 2005, so no warranty. I was driving yesterday when I pushed the clutch in heard a "snap", thought something may have fallen under the pedal then when I pushed in again the clutch pedal stayed fully depressed, had to pull over. can pull the pedal back and noticed the push rod had snapped. looking further today I noticed that the reason it snapped is cause the alignment is off, then I noticed the aluminum mounting bracket was cracked at the bottom which must have caused the malalignment. I hope this all makes sense the way I described, has this happened to anyone else, anyone got good ideas on how to get this fixed out of warranty? thanks
thanks alot loren, as usual. You are the best! hope you're having a great 4th of july weekend
Does anyone have the part #s for a brake change diy on a 2005 carrera S. probably just need the pads, sensors, shims. anything else you could think of would be appreciated. also if there is anything special on this diy. I did the brakes on my 996 using the maintenance diy on here without any problems. thanks
raffi replied to raffi's topic in 997-1 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 2S, Carrera 4S)thanks for the reply but im still confused. I already have all the 997 gt3 parts, rotor caliper pads lines etc... want to put it on a 997, what is the least expensive way to make it work? can i just buy 997 TT rotors all around? or how bout rotors from the og big reds? much easier than buying the new knuckles (wheel hub)... which is around $2000
Anyone have any idea if I can upgrade a 997 (non-S) to 997 gt3 steel brakes? is the hub different? if anyone has tried this and has the necessary part numbers, please let me know. Thanks
Afterhours automotive just put on their new mufflers on my car and also dyno'd the car for me. I was wondering if anyone could interpret the results. I am pretty sure there wasnt much gain because i already have other mods, flash headers and cold air intake. but was wondering if it looks like there is any other loss due to these mods? the guys who flashed my ecu said it looks like an error or problem with the dyno if anyone is wondering, the afterhours muffler is just awesome, if you are thinking about a more tame bypass pipes sound, with the benefits of a sport muffler this has to be the best and only option.

raffi replied to raffi's topic in 997-1 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 2S, Carrera 4S)thanks loren, the company which flashed my car is very helpful but they say they need generic vag codes. 2005 997 carrera S
raffi posted a topic in 997-1 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 2S, Carrera 4S)Hey guys, I have been getting a CEL after i had my ecu flashed. p2188 p2098 any ideas what these are? thanks edit: nevermind i just figured out how to get the codes from this site, how do i delete this post though?
dont know if you figured this out yet, but i remember just lifting on them and they pull off fairly easily. of course with the airbag off. i am not sure if they come off as easily with the airbag on.
raffi replied to Vlar's topic in 997-1 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 2S, Carrera 4S)I believe you use a 10mm or 12mm twelve point star bit. The bolt is put in with blue loctite so it takes some effort to loosen it. Once you have taken the bolt out the wheel comes right off. :drive: Aaron yeah, it is a 12 point T55 bit, and you retorque at 37ft lb. I was able to use a 6 point torx bit. pretty easy once you have the tools...
raffi replied to Vlar's topic in 997-1 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 2S, Carrera 4S)Hey, I was able to pop off the airbag by following some previous posts from here. First I unplugged the battery and came back an hour later. I just inserted a flat head screwdriver in the little hole and the airbag popped off, I then disconnected the airbag plug from the steering wheel. when i popped the airbag off the next 2 pictures show what I am looking at, it looks like some kind of torx hole? does anyone have any idea what the next step is? I dont want to take this out then have a hard time re-aligning the wheel. Thanks guys.
