996tt cruise control, hydraulic pump, and wiper fluid.


Recommended Posts

In may I purchased an arctic silver 2001 996tt, I have just this weekend done a MAF cleaning on it, which btw was an unbelievable difference in driveability!! Thanks for the post! It literally felt like a new car, and I believe it fixed the PSM/ABS cel I was getting. I have a couple other issues that I need to tackle now.

-The first is that when I first got the car the wiper fluid sprayers worked, ran out of fluid, then when I refilled them only the headlight sprayer works, not the windshield one?! I cant figure it out.

-The next is that I cant get anything from the cruise control lever, I cant get the light to light up or cruise to activate or anything. Also I dont know that it really matters but I cant really feel any pressure from the button on the lever itself either, if that makes any sense, it just doesnt feel like the lever button on the other side.

-Lastly my hydrolic pump for my wing seems to have gone out, and there is a tiny bit of leakage from the driver side wing at the tube cnnection to the bottom.

Please help, I literally have saved my whole life for this car and I cant afford to get it fixed at the dealership. Thanks soo much in advance for any help.

Hi -- I just got my 04 996 TT x50 last week, so I don't know much more (if any) than you do, but I have run across the rear hydraulic pump issue. I have it, and I may just go ahead and fix it. Wing still works, but it's got a leak and should probably be taken care of sooner rather than later. My independent estimated $2400 for this official Porsche fix (parts / labor). Here's a $150 fix that others have used. Check it out. Might save you some bucks. I don't know anything else about the other issues that you mentioned.
