Doing The 30k Mile Major Service Myself (?)

Recommended Posts

Howdy! First, gotta say I LOVE this site. Just made a small donation to become a contributing member. Woo-hoo!

Anyway, here's the query. I'd like to do the 30k mile service on my 1999 996 C2. Most of the actual WORK seems to be pretty straightforward - change air and pollen filters, change oil and oil filter, change spark plugs. And I'm planning on changing the brake fluid and bleeding the clutch too.

How tough is it to perform the "inspections" that are part of the service? Specifically, can some helpful person point out exactly where to look, and what to look for? :) Here's what I would like some advice on:

* Diagnosis system: Read out fault memory

(how important is it to actually do this?)

* Polyrib belt: Check condition

* Coolant hoses: Check condition;

* Coolant: Check the level and antifreeze protection

* Fuel system: Visual inspection for damage, routing and secure fit of line connections

* Power steering: Check the fluid level

* Steering gear: Visually inspect the bellows for damage

* Tie rod joints: Check the play and dust bellows

* Axle joints: Check play, visual inspection of dust bellows for damage, check screw connections of running gear adjustment facility, front and rear, for secure fit

* Drive shafts: Perform a visual inspection of the boots for leaks and damage

Exhaust system: Visual inspection for leaks and damage, check suspension

Everything else, I think I can handle.

Thanks in advance!
