In the last 2 weeks I bought my first Porsche - a 2001 Carrera 4 tiptronic coupe.
1) Is it supposed to say Carrera 4 or Carrer 4S on the back?
2) Is there a Porsche specific website where I can find a photo of the correct rear decklid badges for each 996 model? I tried Google for 2 hours last night.
I simply trying to determine if my 01 Carrera 4 should read Carrera 4 or Carrera 4S on the back.
Hey everyone, i own a 2010 porsche Boxter 2.9L with the PDK transmission.. yesterday after leaving the car for a 4 days i started it and went for a drive.. when i turned it on again, i got a warning message “emergency transmission run” and the car became very jerky through gearshifts and wouldnt accelerate properly.. after turning it on and off the message went away and it drove just fine but then it kept re-appearing mid drives and becomes very jerky and clunky...ive noticed since i had the car that the gearbox was sometimes clunky or would make a noise when changing gear but the dealership said that was fine and normal since its a PDK, the car is at 59,000km so its time for a transmission fluid change... could this be a low voltage problem, or transmission fluid? The reverse gear works just fine.. has this happened to any other owners?
I have just bought a gen 2 boxster and the silver plastic lever to operate the recline motor on the passenger seat was missing. I have bought a new plastic lever but I am not sure how to fit it to operate the motor.
Looking at the seat there is a little white plastic recessed pin and if I push that with a small screw driver I can operate the motor and change the angle of the seat. However, the new silver plastic lever is flush, so if Infit it, it will not engage with this plastic pin, so will not operate the seat motor.
Below the white pin is a square black plastic clip that easily pushes into the seat but looks as if it is meant to clip into a square hole in the silver lever. It is so easily pushed into the seat side that I cannot see how to fit it to hold the silver plastic lever on. It does not seem to want to come out. Is there a way of getting it out So that I can clip it into the silver lever before fitting the lever.
So so my questions are:
- should the white plastic pin stick out beyond the side of the seat ( ie is the end broken off?), or is there another part which goes between the silver lever and the white pin?
- how do I engage the black plastic square clip with the silver lever to hold it on?
I have a photo which would make it clearer, but the system says that I cannot upload it or my iPad, but it is not clear why not.
