Hi, Wanted to get your opinions after my mechanic said something: Update: 996 C2 Cabrio (2000) The issue/potential concern: After the car warms up (say after 20 mins or so) the voltage reading drops to approx 13V and pretty much stays there. I spoke to my mechanic about this and he said thats totally normally. However is it, seems abnormal to me? Other than that the cars starts perfect each time and on cold starts always shows 14V. Any thoughts/opinions as things I've read lead me to believe i should change the voltage regulator on the alternator? Thanks.
The car has defined lift points, which are outline in the owner's manual, and do not involve lifting the entire end of the car in one move. You also do not need customized jack stands for the car, generic stands with a simple hockey puck on top will do just fine. And yes, the car will tilt a bit while jacking it from the side, which is completely normal. As this had been a repeating question, search is always your best friend. Hi, I'm aware of those lift points however how do i lift and get my axle stands in the same place (without using a jackpoint jack stand)?
Ah ok - great, this makes sense. And where exactly do you place the axle stands then? Also if I want to lift the front i presume they'd go in a similar place?
Hi, Thanks for your replies. So i'm aware of those manual define jack points and that I prefer to use. However If i want to place stands at rear I need to lift from the front defined point to get the back in right. Its just when i lift seems like a huge tilt. If i were to use a second trolley jack I'd definitely feel more comfortable with less tilt however would I get the rear up enough to get my stands in? Regards.
Hello, I know this topic has lots of coverage on this forum and on others however I can't see to find an definitive answer to jacking up the rear of a 996. (I need to clear the rear drainage holes). So i've seen some of those nice Jackpoint Jackstands which look great and seem to do the job with major ease however I want to see if using a standard low profile trolley jack and axle stands can do the job 'just as quick' (I know it won't be the same). What I’ve found: 1 - I’ve tried lifting the front then trying the get the axle stands at the rear in. The issue, didn't have enough clearance - also felt the car was really tilting too much. 2 - I’ve also read about lifting from the rear at a point in front of the oil drain. The issue, I’m really wary of using this point being around such a critical area. (attached) 3 - Theres also the rear suspension mounting point. The issue I don't have a long low profile trolley jack. (attached) Can someone suggest a definitive answer or should i just go ahead and buy those Jackpoint stands. Cheers
