996TT control arm replacement

Recommended Posts

Didn't find any TT or awd specific posts regarding this, so I was hoping I could get a quick walk through of the front control arm replacement procedure. My car is an '01 996TT.

I found this, and the control arm and track arm look very similar in the picture so I am guessing it is closely resembling ours? ( http://kevingosselin.blogspot.com/2009/08/boxster-control-arm-replacment-in-total.html )

But that link doesn't deal with any front half shafts. Do I need to remove the hub assembly to do my front control arms? Should I have new CV boots/clamps standing by?

Thanks for any pointers!

-Connor

      To all 996 owners with PSE, especially those with a 4S. 
       
      I think my 996 C4S exhaust behaves oddly. I think it's a fault but you might tell me it's normal behaviour. The problem is that I've always had this 'fault' on my car so I don't know if it's a fault or intentional behaviour. If you have the same car, perhaps you can shed some light on this.
       
      When I start it, it's noisy and sounds great. It quiets down as it runs for the first 5 mins. 
       
      I have the PSE system and when I press the button you can audibly hear the exhaust note change - quieter when on and louder when off. Default is off so loud.
       
      Here's the rub. Up to around 1500rpm it's got a good noise then it fades out to the point where it's so quiet it's like driving my partners Yaris. If I keep accelerating, when I get to around 3500rpm the exhaust suddenly gets loud again. I mean it's immediate - like someones flipping a switched marked loud. It sounds great. 
      It happens in 2nd and 3rd gears most noticeably and the PSE is in the 'off' position. If I have the PSE button on, then it's just quiet all the time and that works fine.
       
      So why the silent spot?

      I did read somewhere that German market cars might have had a system that turns on and off the PSE at certain speeds to prevent people driving round residential streets with a loud exhaust but information is thin and I don't think I was ever on UK cars. 
       
      I have also had a small go at checking vacuum pressure at idle on both sides of the Y piece in the engine bay but both hold good pressure. One side has only a microscopic leak but not enough to cause this kind of issue.

      Hi everyone, I just got a set of gauges for a 2005 996. I'm building a simulator for PC and would like to wire the gauges to work with racing games. I am in need of the wiring diagrams for the cluster. If anyone has a picture or manual that can help me out it would be great! Looking for inputs, power, signal.

      Hi,
       
      My 99 996 has started beeping twice when I press the key fob.
       
      It locks and then immediately unlocks.
       
      Also when opening the drivers side door, the window goes down when handle is pulled but goes straight back up when the handle is released. So the window obstructs the door closing.
       
      I have the following Durametric Alarm errors:
        11
      Voltage failure during alarm
      output
      Status: not present
      Frequency counter: 1 10
      Voltage failure at terminal 30
      with alarm system active
      Status: not present
      Frequency counter: 1 46
      Control locking synchronization

      Status: not present
      Frequency counter: 2 49
      K lead

      Status: not present
      Frequency counter: 1 21
      W lead ( DME immobilizer)

      Status: not present
      Frequency counter: 1  
      What's the best way to proceed with fixing this?
       
      Thanks
      Ravi

      Hi Guys, 
       
      So for my car , 996 C2 , 2003 with 70 TMiles and M030 suspension .
       
      Im currently in process of purchasing several parts for suspension refresh , so to say . 
      Whole process came to a corner , left or right  , from perspective of refreshing it since rear shock absorbers , i have planned to purchase are not available , anywhere .
      At least not for reasonable/decent  price 
       
      Plan is  to refresh my stock M030 shocks , front and rear , where Bilstein B4 is standard which came with car .
       
       
      Now , i have received front shocks but rear ones are not available and supplier does not know when they will be available .
      I could not find them online , also , not a single supplier have them on stock, so only option , order them , pay them and wait for Bilstein to make them and deliver .. 
       
      Development of situation is is that my supplier have offered me Bilstein B8 as option , more or less same price as B4 .
       
      Now, guys ,.. 
       
      As part of refreshment i have bought several additional parts, which are part of suspension and fit B4 setup, for all 4 corners.. 
       
      supporting mount
      hexagon nut M 10
      compensating plate 
      ring
      bellows
      additional spring - bump stop
       
      So to say rubbers and plastics ..
       
      Springs i plan to keep , so no new springs planned ..
       
      Questions
       
      Will all those part be usable with B8 shocks , so plug and play .
      What will be height difference , is B8 height adjustable or height is same as M030 
      WIll B8 shocks be delivered with installation manual 
       
       
      I have read recent article , it seams, came in right moment for me 🙂
       
       
       
      So positive opinion on Bilstein B8 , which is ok , but im not worried about  B8 on German Autobahn , my worry is as i wrote , will this be plug and play considering replacement of current ROW M030 
      or something needs to be bought specifically beside refreshment parts i have already bought .
       
      Have some experience with wrenching around , front shock mount , Wheel bearing , basic service  , sparks, mufflers , ignition Switch , etc .. 
      But few additional thingies and advises  as additional knowledge is always welcomed .
       
       
      Thank you very much guys ..
       
      Zoran
