Rotors and pads for a 997 C2S 2005

Recommended Posts

Hi

I need your help choosing what to buy.

I have a 997 C2S -05 that the rotors and pads should be replaced on.

Should you invest your money in original or go for an aftermarket solution e.g. Zimmerman or a other brand? Brembo is fine but very expensive

I want drilled ones but should I even go for slotted?

Are there any brand that have coating btw that prevent the discs to rust?

Original is 330mm front! Is there any reason to go up in size?

Hope for help from you knowledgeable Porsche friends

I always use Sebro disks and Textar pads, which I believe are as close as you can get to original parts without having Porsche written on the box. There are cheaper and more expensive disks & pads around, but this combo works well for me. They rust at the same rate as originals too!

If the car isn't a daily driver, the most significant thing you can do to reduce corrosion is to take the car for a drive immediately after washing, to "brake the disks dry".

Hi

Does anyone know what it is for minimum thickness of the Carrera S original rotors?

Or how can you ensure that the rotors need to be replaced?

Hi Henrik,

The minimum thickness is engraved on the rotors min 32mm for the front ( new 34 ), for the back I think it is 28 mm new and Min 26 mm

Make sure you give your hubs on your rotors an extra coat of rust proof paint.. Zimmermans will rust and look pretty nasty through the wheel spokes. Just Sayin...

Thanks for your input phillipj

This i can read at Zimmermann home page and i have friends who have used the Coat Z rotors and are super happy

"Since 2008 Zimmermann is offering almost 400 Standard and almost 400 Sports Brake Discs in a coated version named "Coat Z – anti corrision"."

So i give it a chance

The brakes on 997-1 are the same as the 996 series so check those DIY articles.

Hi

I feel pretty confident about the Rotors and Discs. Seen on DIY.

But should I change the fluid and lines first or last? Or at all wheels at the .... ?

If the car isn't a daily driver, the most significant thing you can do to reduce corrosion is to take the car for a drive immediately after washing, to "brake the disks dry".

Or use your leaf blower, and blow out the water from the cross drilled rotors, and dry the entire wheel.

      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:
       
      Questions:
      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?

      Well, I have an engine that needs to be worked on. However it is on the floor and I need it to be on the engine stand. How do I go about strapping this thing down so I can move it ??

      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

      Guys,
      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.
      Thanks
