2010 C2S 108K miles
I was planning to replace the plugs. I went to remove the mufflers. They were very corroded - especially the two I do not have to remove. I used penetrating oil (acetone + AFT). They are much prettier, but they are still corroded.
Here is a 1 min video of the bolts so you can see what I am facing:
If I get started on removing them and it does not go well, what next? Surely I don't have to replace the catalytic converters? Are the bolts somehow replaceable?
Do they look too far gone?
I am almost there with the Brake job on my project. One problem though. How do I connect the hard brake line to the caliper? I have connected the soft brake hose line from the hard line coming from the master cylinder area. However the hard brake line (small curved piece with red cap) doesn't seem to line up to the connector on the caliper. Do I bend it and make it fit or is there an actual part to order. Here are some pics. I tried to find good steel lines but have been having a hard time finding some blue ones.
I need some help with this. I wanted to replace all 4 corners with EBC pads and rotors but what I found out is my car has 360mm rotors. There is a large selection of 350mm and 380mm rotors but the 360mm rotors are hard to come by in a aftermarket performance series brake rotor.
Does anyone have any experience with this and what products did they wind up purchasing.
Thank in advance for any suggestions
I am seeking for some help on my 997.1 C2S (2005). 2 months ago, when I was driving my car in the city (low speed), after turning round the corner suddently all dash lights came on and followed by engine cut off. As there was no particular weir noise beforehand, so normal response I turned the key and the engine started but only for 2 seconds before it cut off again.
From there, I realized that the rear floor was full of engine oil. The car of course ended up at my mechanic with engine off the car noticing that the IMS bearing was broken inside the housing but no visual damage seem to appear on the IMS itself.
Anyway, to cut short I had the ims bearing replaced with taking the whole engine apart. After the repair I took the car for test drive, it seems running fine but when engine is cold, everytime I accelerate from zero, the throttle response feels a bit shakey and doesnt want to accelerate. However once the car has been warmed up, it is back to normal.
Can someone please advise me what might be wrong with my car? Will it be sensor issue? It has only done 45,000km.
