I love that the pdf version of the Factory Workshop Manual is linked so that one can click on the link and it jumps straight to the relevant section. However, some topics have longer codes and are not underlined/linked. What does that mean? E.g., I'm trying to figure out how to take apart the parking-brake lever (the little button on the end is loose and makes a very annoying rattle on rough Canadian roads). the WSM refers to "466119 21 Removing and installing parking-brake lever" but it's not linked and I can't find it in the WSM. I also looked through all of the TSB's on this site, thinking that maybe the longer code was for a TSB, and didn't seen anything about it.

BTW, does anyone know if PET6 will run on a 64bit OS? I installed it on Win7 64 but it didn't work.

Sometimes sections of the service manuals are not added until later (years later in some cases). It is not in any of my documentation either but I doubt that much detail would be there anyway.

No versions of PET that run on a 64 bit OS that I am aware of. Several of us use Windows Virtual PC - XP Mode for both PET and POSES.

Thanks, Loren. Interesting. I'll google how to run xp mode for specific programs. What is POSES?

You will need a Windows Professional or better and fairly powerful CPU. Just download both Virtual PC and XP Mode from Microsoft and follow the instructions. A little time consuming the first time install but works fast after that.

POSES is no longer produced but it is a program that combines all of the literature for Porsche cars (somewhat like PET does for parts). Service manuals, technical books, labor hours, etc., etc. Not very user friendly IMHO.

They stopped updating it and supporting it in 2006. PIWIS now does the same job (for quite a bit more money per year).
