Rear Wing Hydralics

Recommended Posts

I've been following the topics on this subject, here and on 6speed, since a couple of years and nobody came out with a solution to replace the internal seals. Because I don't think anybody found them. Too unique maybe..... Some people used thicker grade oil to service the system even some put additive in the oil. Did it last? We don't know! There was a 6speed member who had access to various hydraulic components and he could not found a fix. What's been done is purchasing a used hydraulic assembly from Ebay and with all the best parts building one serviceable. Or ,like many people did, install a fix wing... Of course if you found a solution don't hesitate to share your findings!

My solution was a 997 TT cool.gif

I think the ones you enumerated are it. Replacements / or Fixed seem like the only solutions at this time.....


I saw on Ebay the 997 TT spoiler hydraulic kit but didn't know if it fit the 996 TT ! So it does?

I have a 2001 996TT that is coding faulty rear wing lift. I checked the wing and the left hydralic is slighly leaking. Can this be repaired? If so how? I have read that the whole system has to be replaced. Any suggestions?

Shoot me an e-mail (dustinr@nvbell.net) and I'll send you the 996TT / GT2 service manual. There's a good section about rebuilding the rear wing hyd's ... if anything, find a hyd. repair shop and show them the service pages and I bet they could fix it. Call a heavy equipment rental company and ask them whom they use to repair hydraulic pumps and cylinders.
