  1. Hey gang, hopefully someone can answer a few questions for me. I have a 997.2 cab, and recently bought a set of Turbo II wheels – when I spoke to my local dealership, they informed me the offset was wrong and the wheels wouldn’t work on the car. Anyone have thoughts? What size tires are you running if you have the same setup? Any help is appreciated. Here are the part numbers: Front 997.362.157.02 – 8x11 ET57 Rear 997.362.163.02 – 11x19 ET51 Thanks, Chris
  2. Dear All, Can anyone please advise if the following data is correct for my recent wheel alignment job done? I don't have the original / correct data in hand, just want to make sure. Thx
  3. A friend and I have been struggling with a strange problem with his 2006 997 4S with tiptronic transmission. When you start his car you need to turn the key and let it crank on the starter motor for around 10 seconds before it will start, and when it does it seems to be a bit lumpy for the first second or two. However, if you shut it down while it is running and restart it right away it fires straight up within a second. We have pulled off a coil pack and put a new plug into it (earthed out with a jump lead) and observed that while it is cranking there is no spark, apart from maybe one every 3 seconds, and then rapid sparking at the plug as soon as it fires up. We have also hooked up fuel pressure monitoring kit to the car, and the fuel pressure seems to be right, as I thought it may be the fuel pump check valve or pressure regulator bleeding off pressure, but then we discovered what was happening with the spark not being there until 10 or so seconds of continuous cranking. We have hooked the car up to the PIWIS and PIWIS-2 that the local Porsche approved bodyshop loaned to us, and there are no fault codes anywhere. We also had hoped to watch the live data while cranking, but it seems that communication disconnects during starter motor cranking, which we are told is normal. The strange thing is that the car idles fine, runs fine, no hesitation, we have followed the Porsche test plan for checking the mass airflow sensor, we have used a smoke machine on the intake to look for vacuum leaks, we have even checked the various temperature sensors on the PIWIS and all seem to be reporting good temperatures. While we had the PIWIS-2 we even reprogrammed the DME with the latest software, which it said was already loaded but we did it anyway in case something was corrupted. We have even disconnected the battery over night and tried the various re-training adapting methods on the internet. Fuel trims are all hovering around 900 and 1.1 We have even changed the crank sensor for a new one and no difference. If it were not for the loss of spark, I would be tempted to say it was the fuel pressure bleeding off, because it is a little like it is trying to get fuel back up to the injectors when cranking, which would also explain the way it only has this problem 5 mins after shutting the engine down, but not less than 5 mins. Does the 997 DME monitor oil pressure before it supplies a spark? My reason for asking is that this would also be something which would match up with the symptoms, once the oil pressure has bled off completely, it would take a few cranks to regain it, especially if the oil circuit had a fault... But when running the oil pressure is good, however it does seem to be that the oil pressure is at the bottom on the instruments when cranking and either it shoots up and then the engine runs, or maybe it just shoots up due to the engine running at a faster speed than starter motor cranking. We even worried it may be cranking a little slower than the DME was happy with, so even replaced the dreaded alternator/starter motor/charging harness on the engine.. Which now has it cranking a fraction faster, but still the same problem. Having compared the cranking speed to my Boxster and 996, it seems to be turning over at the same kind of speed. Any ideas anyone??
  4. 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
  5. Hi folks, I live in Boca Raton, I have a 2005 997 - 911 with 93k miles. I'm not a rich man. I'm looking for recommendations for service and repair in the south Florida area ideally someone who would like to work on a gentle restoration or a recommendation for a reasonable shop that will do good work for a reasonable price i.e. not dealer rates. I need a replacement alternator i think as the bearings have just gone (sounds like that anyway) and all the belts should be due by now. Anyone with experience in maintaining this vehicle who wants to earn a little extra please contact me or if anyone has a show they would personally recommend I'd be very grateful. Mark.
  6. Hello everyone, first of all, i would like to excuse my bad english, im from germany. My name is Dominic and i drive a Cayman S. I really love this car, but i hate the seats. I bought a pairs of "König" seats and im about to install them this weekend. The only problem is, no Dealer does the coding to dissable to dissable the thorax Airbags. So i need to add some resistors on the cables. Can somebody tell me where i have to wire the resistors? I found this topic with the same question, but no answer: Thank you very much in advance!!
  7. Well, I have an engine that needs to be worked on. However it is on the floor and I need it to be on the engine stand. How do I go about strapping this thing down so I can move it ??
  8. The sunroof on my 2005 C2 S is struggling to open/close properly because (I think) the lubrication on the spiral cables is old and gummed up. I would like to remove the cables so that I can clean and re-lubricate them. Can anyone advise the easiest way to do this? I'm really hoping someone knows how to do this without having to remove the headlining and frame etc.
  9. Looking through the PET I noticed that M96 3.6 997's use a different pressure plate but the same clutch as the 3.6 996. I have read online that the 997 clutch pedal is lighter than the 996, wondering if I can install a 997 pressure plate in a 996, anyone tried it?
  10. hi everyone, im being haunted with TPMS now. first problem is left side appear req??? if u check in tyre pressure, meter keep pop out TPC inactive, system learning. so below is what i have done; -check battery life, FR 0 month. i changed FR wheel sensor -after changed the sensor, i run about 5km (TPC inactive still pop out) -i diagnosed again n check battery life, RR 0 month then.. ****! -i dont believe the scanner, so i do system adaptation -problem still same, i then swap rear tyre. -scanner still show RR 0 month, i then swap TPMS rear antena -problem still same..now i dont know what to do. im wondering how TPMS get wheel electronic ID? i noticed 1 thing, first time i check the ID *******217 at FL, then today 217 at RL! anyone get the clue? i have running the car more than 20km but it still learning.
  11. The vehicle is a 2005 997 Carrera 3.6. I cannot find the part #'s for the 3 power steering pump mounting bolts. They are exposed after removing the power steering pump pulley. In the attached picture you will see 3 holes in an upside down U shape behind the triangular pulley mount. I tried my local dealer without any luck.
  12. 2006 C2 Cab. Front lid won't operate either with remote or cabin switch. All my research on the web indicated the most likely culprit was the trunk lid actuator. I read that the solenoid sometimes fails because of the heat. Ordered the part from Pelican and installed but no luck. It was warm and made a noise when I plugged it in but nothing. Then most likely is the cabin switch although the engine compartment switch works fine. Got that part and installed, no luck. In many reviews of the chart I see no fuse dedicated to this operation. I'm now (unfortunately) very familiar with the manual methods to get the lid open when the switch won't work. Extremely frustrated! Any other thoughts? I'm out of ideas other than take it to the shop. Thanks!!
  13. I just bought a 2006 Carrera 4. It saying PCM on the original bill of sale... does that mean I have navigation? When I press the NAV button it is saying NAV is not available. I think the DVD might be missing and I know I can buy them on Ebay, but where is the actual DVD slot. I downloaded the PCM 2.1 manual but the information is very limited and it doesn't tell me where the actual DVD player is located. Where is the DVD player?
  14. I'm getting a weird buzzing noise (buzz/whine) when above 4000 RPM. It's a 997S 1st gen no mods, with about 70k on it. It sounds a bit like the car is struggling at anything past 4000 RPM.. It happens in gear and in neutral. When its hot and cold. if anyone has any ideas of parts I should look at, that may be causing this, please let me know! I'll post a video of the sound in the next couple of days too, so you can hear what it sounds like. Thanks a lot!
  15. Hi, I need winter tires on my 1999 Porsche 996 Carrera. I found some used 19" (99736215602) ET57 8x19 front with 225/40r19 and (99736216202) ET51 11x19 rear with 255/35r19. My question is, will these fit my carrera? The owner have had it on a 996 Turbo (not 997 Turbo). Thanks :notworthy:
  16. Recently I have been thinking of an exhaust system upgrade for my 2005 997 C2S which I have been driving for quite some time. Can any of you guy help by suggestion on this issue? My 997 is basically standard apart from a set of BBS forged wheels. I am hunting for something that product nicer sound plus hopefully better flow and performance. Any experience and suggestions on where to shop, please reply.
  17. Hello, I recently purchased a used 2009 Carrera and had it delivered missing the front undercarriage panel, as well as the three panels in the truck area that cover the battery and areas to the left and right, above the boot. Does anyone know how to determine the correct part numbers? Have a source for purchasing these parts? vin# WP0AA29939S706301 Thank you for your time,
  18. Does anyone know how many 997 Targa's were produced? I've looked all over but have only been able to find the total number of 997's produced but not by model.
  19. I have a deal on a 2005 911 Carrera 4S Cabriolet with the 3.8L, 47500 miles. The deal is pending a PPI by the local Porsche dealer, I'm not buying it from the dealer. After all this talk of IMS bearings I'm concerned. The car fax is clean. I visited the Porsche dealer and they ran a service report that shows a warrantee repair at 11000 miles ( 13590 sealing f cranks, flywh / 5043 oil loss) When I got this report the service manager said this was a good thing that the seal was replaced because the newer seal is better than the original. Any advice on this IMS bearing issue would be appreciated before I make the purchase.
  20. I just bought used 2006 997 4S with 114000 km, last service history 80000km. What service will you recommend to perform? Thank you
  21. I am installing a Dension Gateway 500 and a BTA 1500 in my 997 S Cabriolet. I am trying to find the best way to route the BTA
  22. Hello All, I purchased a 2005 Carrera base with 60k a few months ago. Being a Porsche fan all my life, this was finally my first one. The car fax and records looked good but since I got it, its has been nothing but problems. Within the first month, the water pump went out. Considering the car is 7+ years old, I was okay with that. The following month the CEL came on with misfiring sum and all cylinders. I took it to TPWS in Austin and they said I needed to replace the spark plugs and coils so I had them do it. Now 2 weeks later, the CEL is on again with misfiring sum and misfiring 3, 5 and 6 cylinders. I made an appointment to take it back to TPWS. I don't mind replacing my coils and plugs but it seems like that wasn't the root cause of my CEL to begin with. Questions to the forum: Should I expect to have my 911 in the shop every month (i. e. is this normal)? Shop always seems to be really busy. Is going through a list of possibilities the correct way to approach these CEL codes or should I take it to someone else? Thanks in advance, Oscar
  23. Guys, One of my friend is urgently seeking for a set of Piston Rings for his 2006 997 C2S. I have been searching from the internet but found basically nothing so far. Can someone help by providing me some internet site which I can order quickly for him and arrange shipping within short period? Thankyou
  24. Hi guys, I am a new memebr and have owned my Porsche Carrera C4S Cab launch car since April of this year. I would like some input please... I did not particularly like my lobster fork wheels so I found a set of 19" Porsche Classic II wheels locally. I was told by the individual that the wheels came of a 2010 C4S and are OEM original. I bought them yesterday but after careful inspection while cleaning them this afternoon, I noticed that there is a "Made in Italy' stamp embossed inside the wheel. I got concerned so I went on line and read that OEM wheels also always have the off set size of the wheel embossed on the outside of the wheel by the stem valve - mine do not. Can someone please tell me if I have a set of knock-offs? That is not what I wanted nor what I was told. P.S. the vendor is a very nice guy and swears he bought them from a Porsche dealer in California as original stock. Would really appreciate anything you guys can add...
  25. Need some help deciding. Currently looking to spend $40-$50k on a used car in the area. CPO or non-CPO, still deciding. I've come up with a list of 3 cars that I think fit my needs. My situation - Children: One girl (2 years) / One boy (on the way in Jan), wife has a new SUV that we use 100% of the time for going out with the kids - car purchasing ~Spring 2013 - invited to at least 3-5 member only track days a year. Currently have to borrow my manager's Cayman S, but would like to get a track worthy car for sessions. - only drive about 10 miles a day to work, but would primarly use this car on weekends for fun Needs - to be track worthy - between $40-$50k - obviously looking for lowest mileage / best maintained - some sort of backseat room for car sets (if I had to transport my kids in emergency) - not sure if CPO would help if I'm keeping this new car low mileage and if tracking the car would void CPO? My opinions on the 3 choices I've come to... Porsche 911 (996/997) Pros: - Most Balanced of the bunch - Probably quickest on the track - Actually a good amount available in the area - Already fimiliar with driving Cayman/911 around the track - Best styling Cons: - uber small backseat - most expensive to purchase / maintain - will probably have to buy higher mileage to get within $40-$50k range - not sure it will pass the wife test BMW M3 (e92) - Coupe/Sedan Pros: - Amazing engine sound - Backseat Room in both Coupe/Sedan - Great track times - Probably best daily driver Cons: - lots of M3s around here - becoming hard to find - $ marked up / popular Mercedes-Benz c63 AMG Pros: - More amazing engine sound - Most backseat room - Most HP/Torque, Raw power - Fastest strait line performance Cons: - Auto only - gas mileage (but, not too concerned) - very heavy car and probably least track worthy I've test drove all of them and love each one. But, which one fits my situation the best? Sorry for long post...
