Thanks guys but opening the engine lid by the emergency cable is what I do also I have replaced the parts linked to it (7 and 8 from the part diagram above. also the lid opening switch) . However, I want to fix the electric function of the opening mechanism, so is there a way to track the problem exactly?
Hi guys, When I try to open the engine lid by the switch it doesn't operate, I changed almost everything (lock mechanism, electric switch) but still it doesn't operate. is there a way to test the engine lid system? Regards.
Hi everyone I'm out to buy a new diagnostic tool and I came into two options: 1- Durametric Pro 2- Autel MaxiSys Elite The price difference between Durametric and Autel unit is big but in my case I have to get laptop or PC that support Durametric and this will bring the price to a range closer to the Autel unit. The question is what functions in the Durametric Pro that is not available in the Autel MaxiSys Elite? Here is the Function list for the Autel unit: http://www.autelscanner.com/upload/autel_maxisys_pro_function_list/Autel_MaxiSys_MS908_Pro_PORSCHE-V2_00.PDF
I guess this explains why my math teacher was upset
Exactly as I think that the lock rod is attached to this solenoid but when looking at 99662411800 I'm not able to identify where does it link. also when doing some research I have found that there are more part numbers that have the same solenoid like the 99662411700. However, the difference is in the linkage part and the electric connection:
This part consist of three different part number, two of them are just a casing (99651226500 and 99651205500) and the other is an electrical part (99662411800) but it is not available in the parts diagram nor the dealer. However, is this part is connected to the rear latch mechanism?
Actually I wanted to know the function of this part as in the Porsche parts diagram it seems to be actuator related to the anti theft system (number 8 in the diagram): http://www.autoatlanta.com/porsche-parts/hardparts.php?dir=996-99-05§ion=803-05
Hi Could someone explain the function of the locking throttle control actuator (99651205500)? if it went bad what are the symptoms? and could it effect the engine while running? Many thanks
Thanks Loren but could you please tell us the drift sizes available in the B90 tool? as the ABN tool has the following sizes (Drift Sizes: 50, 55, 60, 64, 67, 70, 72, 74, 75, 78, 82,84, and 88mm) and the price difference is huge between to two tools, I understand that the B90 tool has the alignment adapter which the ABN doesn't have but still want to compare the sizing available in each kit.
Hi everyone, I'm about to rebuilt the axles on the my 996 and at the same time will change the wheel bearings. However, I need some tools to get the job done properly and safely so I searched and I saw this tools from ABN: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00QL1APQQ/ref=ox_sc_act_title_1?ie=UTF8&psc=1&smid=A1UMBRA5ZTBCX8 Is this going to work with my application? I mean will I be able to remove and install the wheel bearings (front and rear) using this tool? Thanks
Hi Everyone Recently I bought the stealth bulbs for the 996 to test the look and function of these bulbs and compare it with the OEM bulbs. This review is based on the Porsche Carrera 996 MK1 and we will be comparing four main points (Quality, look, function and price). 1- Quality. Starting with the packing, these bulbs are packed and presented well. However, the 194 bulbs are packed with the same mold used for the 7507 and 7506 bulbs. And here is the stealth bulb along with the OEM blub: 2- Look. When used for the side and rear turn signals the stealth bulbs does remove the orange hint in the turn signal housing. However, for the front turn signals there is no use because the internal lenses inside the headlight is orange and the OEM bulb is clear. OEM Bulb Stealth Bulb 3- Function. When operating the turn signals the stealth bulbs will illuminate less than the OEM bulbs as shown here in the following pictures: 4- Price. The price difference between the stealth bulbs and the OEM bulbs are as follows: OEM 194 bulb = $4.5 Stealth bulb = $28.99 Difference = $24.49 = 84% OEM 7507 bulb = $4.5 Stealth bulb = $29 Difference = $24.5 = 84% OEM 7506 bulb = $9.25 Stealth bulb = $29 Difference = $19.75 = 68% In conclusion, the quality and the look of the stealth bulbs are good and does enhance the look of the rear and side light housing by eliminating the orange hint. However, the function and price are in the favor of OEM bulbs.
Hi everyone I'm trying to find out how to identify the correct compensation plate thickness for the 2001 Porsche Carrera 996? with assumption that the car has no compensation plate or suspension system to check the current compensation plate thickness. Part number 5 from this diagram: Also part number 3 from this diagram:

My AOS on the 2001 996 failed just before couple of days and replaced it. I was able to identify the failure at the beginning when the engine started smoking a bit I turned it off immediately. However, I decided to change the internal units too (inside the oil pan) when I removed the oil pan I saw some broken plastic pieces around the pickup tube so I had to clean it off and replaced the two oil separators (99610708054). The job was a bit easy but the clean up toke a good amount of time because a significant amount of oil was found in the intake, when sealing the oil pan back you should let the sealant cure properly before adding engine oil. Also it is a good idea to change the oil filter at the same time. After the work is done make sure that everything is fitted properly and the oil level is at the max mark (if replaced the oil filter fill the oil filter cap with oil before installation) then start the engine and let it idle for some time to circulate the oil in the engine. you might experience some noises and smoke during idling this will be present as the intake got some good amount of oil in it.
Problem solved Just drove it for less than 100m and the light is off. Thanks Loren.
