Hello,

I've got '02 911 carrera for 1 year. I bought it with 33000 miles and it has 45000 miles today.

There is a sound that I ear all the time. Its frequency goes up and down with car speed. It does not depend on gear engaged. Gears shift perfectly.

During maintenance I asked the tech to have a look on it. He suspected the differential, flushed the oil and found some particles.

He says:

- transmission needs to be replaced and Porsche offers a 50% discount on parts.

- transmission can't be repaired because particles went everywhere and could have lead to other damage.

Do you know in which case transmission can be repaired?

Do you think I should replace it or ask for a repair?

Thanks for your advises.

I had transmission work done at GBOX too, they aslo but in my GT TBD - great guys to deal with and they do warrant. Arranged shipping from ATL to Colorado very reasonable rates. Great guys to deal with. I highly recommend them. (P.S. The TBD has turned the car into a track terror - depending on what you plan to do with the vehicle, spend the extra cash, upgrade and still be less than the cost of the factory rebuilt box! {TBD about $1500}).

Good Luck,

2000 996, 6-spd, mk 1 aerokit
