  1. I had to disconnect the passenger side door airbag as part of door panel removal, to replace the door lock mechanism. To check that I replaced the part correctly, I reconnected the battery and turned the ignition key, and got an "Airbag Failure" warning. The fault didn't clear even after disconnecting the battery, reconnecting the airbag and closing up the door panel, and reconnecting the battery. I confirmed the airbag was reconnected. I suspect that it may be a "latched' fault that can only be cleared via the Durametric tool - thoughts?
  2. The plastic screw on the door panel, inside the storage compartment, spins and spins but does not back out. See picture, attached, or step 3 of this door removal guide, for the screw I'm referring to: http://www.instructables.com/id/How-to-remove-the-door-panel-from-a-Porsche-996/ Anyone else ever had this problem? Any ideas on how to extract the screw? Drill it out, use a screw extractor? Is there a suggestion for a tool to get behind the screw head, apply outward pressure, until the plug or nut securing the screw grips on something, allowing the screw to back out? I'm willin
  3. Hello all! I've got a 1999 996 Carrera that hasn't had any mechanical issues outside of a water pump replacement earlier this year. Just today I noticed that when in 3rd to 5th gear (I haven't had it on freeways to see if it's in 6th too, but most likely it does) in the mid rpm ranges (2500 - 3000+) there is a vibration that I can feel through the gas pedal and throughout the car. When the gas is let up and/or when the vehicle is coasting the vibration goes away. The vibration seems to only occur on acceleration and does seem to be coming from the rear. The check engine light came
  4. Hi-New to the forum and new to porsche. That being said does anyone know how far the steering wheel adjustment goes out. On a 2001 996tt? Thanks in advance.
  5. Just posted a docu. on my completed 02 996 M96 3.6 l engine rebuild for a gorgeous C4 cab barn find, I bough back in August 17 as roller with complete engine (Head&Case failure). http://ow.ly/SjDf30fJkID It is not about performance upgrades or how it should be done. Is about the process to get it done with very details on the critical steps for the hands-on engineer. The car drives fantastic now, and if it breaks I will be confidently enough to spend the needed money and time to order on the new hard parts (Nickies, rods, heads, etc.... For now I did not spend a
  6. Hello, Please help, I just got my first Porsche and have a bit of bad luck lately. The latest is that I was out driving and all was well. I backed it into the garage and parked it. I noticed I needed to pull it in a little bit more. So I started it up, put it into reverse and the panel said "Selector Lever Not Engaged". So I slid it back into park. Waited a bit and then put it into drive hoping to get the shifter engaged thinking it was just a fluke. When I put it in D, the car started to back up. So the current configuration results in Park = parked, Reverse = Nothing, not even ne
  7. Need to replace fuel door actuator and removed fender liner. How do you remove stuff in front of it to access actuator?
  8. Hello everyone, I am new to the forum. I own a 98, bone stock, manual Carrera and here is my attempt at scattering the clouds over 996. Hope you'll like & share.
  9. Hi guys. My car wont crank and i dont know why. On the start lock relay there is no permission signal from the ECU. Directly starter will cranks and engine work. I have fault code on bracke switch, but brake light work. And driver seat airbag. Please help. Sory for my English. Thanks, Kirill
  10. Hi mates, I purchased last week a 996 Turbo (2002). Unfortunetly there was neither an operation manual of the car nor of the PCM System. Is there a chance to get one (as orig. book or PDF file) in english or german?
  11. Soooooo took my 02 C2 coupe to the local porsche indy shop for general overview. After a 2-3 hrs of looking, they call me and said they noticed AOS leak. I told them to go ahead and fix it, worked out a decent price for it. This morning I get a call saying they drained the transaxle fluid and noticed "glittery shavings in the fluid.....We require more diag time and want to drop the transfer case to completely verify if your transmission is bad." Never had any grinding, or lag, or any transmission issues with the car. Oh and it has 61k miles on it. I asked if it was normal since the vehicle is
  12. Posting the exact steps here after not finding precise information on this forum/elsewhere. For those of you who have the misfortune to be greeted by the CODE **** or the WAIT message on the radio screen. I have a 2001 Carrera 4. Above the orange-lit display of the CD player are the tiny white letters PORSCHE CDR-220. That is my radio unit model number. If you have the same fact pattern, read on. 1. Battery was replaced in car. Technician returned car without resetting my displays. Clock was wrong, and CD player/radio unit, when turned on, just said "CODE ****". I had a
  13. Hi all, I'm in the midst of designing a DRL setup for my 996.2 (which is a topic I recognize has been done to death). That said, I'm not a fan of LED light bars, and while I don't mind halos, this is a Porsche, not a BMW. Therefore, I'm taking inspiration from the Four Point Principle. I'm using 8x total Luxeon Star 10mm square LED blocks, neutral white, with 10mm square Carclo 10415 elliptical-pattern lenses, and a 350mA FlexBlock on each side. DRLs should be on the order of 400 lumen per side and 1500Cd at the center, so I'll be using slightly lower currents than the
  14. Can you direct me to where the Option Codes for a 2002 996 Cab? Thank-you
  15. Need some help finding a part number, and for the matter, the name of the part! The picture just shows the passengers side of a piece that surrounds the dashboard (I think its all one part, anyway). It's between the windshield and the dash. Does anyone know what this part is called and what the part number may be? This is for 2001 996 Carrera.
  16. Hi Guys, Aircraft engine Tech, currently replacing the clutch on my AutoX 1999 996 C2, first time tackling a clutch/IMS job. While the clutch & Pressure plate are worn out, I inspected the flywheel, based on Porsche's TSB 911 8/02 1360, & found it to be a bit worn, but serviceable. Common knowledge suggest to replace the flywheel every second clutch change or every 100K miles. Considering the high price of the flywheel, is it Worth it to replace it right now or I can expect it to last until the next clutch change?
  17. So, in the process of getting ready for the summer at NE, I tried two months ago to open my convertible (C4-99). The convertible stuck at 2/3 and didn't go back. I got the car to my indie, stayed there for two weeks and got it back un-repaired. He told me that he tried everything, did recalibration and still, he couldn't fix it. I gone to the dealership too, paid $540 for diagnosis and they told me that they have to replace latch and/or module and since I'm loosing some oil from the cylinders, both cylinders. They quoted me $5400. I hugged them and left :) Now, the last 2 weeks:
  18. This article describes with photos how to replace a wheel bearing using the SIR Tools B90-P2 tool. There are no other "step by step" articles on any forums, so this article complements the others you find on the Internet to show how exactly to do it with this particular tool. Step 1. Remove the wheel carrier from the car. This photo shows where this article starts, it is specific to removing the bearing, not removing the wheel carrier. Step 2. Remove the wheel hub from the carrier, these three photos show how to put the tool in place. Basical
  19. Basic Info 2002 Porsche 911 Carrera Coupe C2 Manual 6 speed US So my friend and I started to the process of changing the IMS to the Solution and noticed while we were removing the second from the top left bolt of the transmission (facing the rear of the car) that there was a lot of corrosion. The bolt was very difficult to get out and actually took some of the threads with it. Once we removed the tranny we saw inside the housing of the tranny and the crank crystallized particles. It was also around the bolt that was tough to get out. After a closer look it appea
  20. A while ago, I had a Durametric scan on my 996 (1999), and during the Short Test I received fault codes 22 (Potentiometer right mirror Open circuit vertical) and 20 (Potentiometer right mirror Open circuit horizontal) under the Seat Memory section. My question is, where are these potentiometers, if I wish to inspect them for either being worn out or having a bad connection? I can manually adjust the passenger mirror with the mirror controls, it's just that the passenger mirror doesn't work with seat memory. I'm taking a guess that the mirrors only have motors in them and these potentiomete
  21. Hello all, newbie online member. A month ago went into Limp mode without any CEL's and had fault codes for the TPS. Replaced it, they came back. Shop replaced the alternator, regulator, and battery thinking a voltage fluctuation might be responsible. Codes came back. Changed out the throttle body for good measure. Now they are back. The shop is otherwise reputable, known for racing more than anything I guess, and they are big on the 993's. But an electrical issue I've found drives most shops nuts. With $5K into this repair already though I don't want a fishing expedition. Any obvious
  22. Hi Everyone, I'm doing the 996 to 997 GT3-RS front conversion and need to re-pin the headlight connector as the 997 use A5 Pin instead of A4 as the 996 (for the High Beam) My question is how can I remove the pin from A4 and put it back in A5 ? How to re-pin the headlight connector ? I did a lot of search and didn't find anything specific on Porsche 996. Thanks Alex
  23. Hello! I am running into some electrical issues that all happened at once. Here are the items that I found not functioning: Cluster Illumination, power seats, radio (PCM does not power on), engine lid switch (frunk works), HVAC (the screen is functioning, but not blowing any air). The car starts fine and runs. I initially thought maybe the ignition switch was faulty, so I went ahead and replaced but nothing changed. I have checked many fuses and they all look fine. There are no trouble codes. If it matters, this is the scenario when I noticed all the
  24. H! I have an 996 - 99mod manual 3,4L. When i start up it seems like it misfires. It`s kind of a knocking sound. Sometimes it stops on idle. When i push the throttle for a ouple of seconds, it smokes a lot and then the knocking goes away. After that, I let it Idle - but it slowly rises from 800rpm to around 2000rpm, then it drops to 800rpm again and do the same thing over and over again, Does anybody have a clue? This is the fault codes i found: P1601 -CAN timeout - instrument cluster P0600 - CAN timeout Tiptronic
  25. For 2004, 996, GT3 Searching for the part number of the 4 quarter-turn plastic rivets that attach the black plastic trim piece over the front hood latch release, between the front bumper and the trunk gasket. Thanks!
