Does anyone know how to disassemble the Lucas Master Cylinder installed on a 2002 996 C4
I have removed the large circlip and the cotter pin, but can't get the piston out even with pulling.
There is a plastic cover at the back of the cylinder which looks like it is a push fit, but this doesn't want to move and is quite brittle plastic so I don't want to break it. This could be threaded and therefore needs to be unscrewed to remove, but there are no lugs or holes which could be used with a tool to enable it to be turned.
Grateful for any advice.
So I have a 2011 Cayenne S. I took it on a road trip in July and did over 6000kms pulling my 19ft travel trailer. No issues pulling it at all, quite the opposite. The pig performed like a champ! Now I'm home and commuting back and forth to work and I start hearing a sporadic whining noise. Sounds like gear/tranny/transfer case noise. it comes and goes. there is no grinding sounds or anything like that just a whining. I'm wondering if she burned through some fluid during her hauling roadtrip? Would low fluid levels cause whining?
Thanks in advance!
I was troubleshooting code P2189, undo some vacuum line to test for leaks ... this is a different issue all together. I mentioned it because I unhooked vacuum lines. I reconnected everything (hoses), I did not start the engine because I was still working on it. My engine was running fine for weeks even with P2189 - not rough like some mentioned!
Two days later, In the morning, I used the car to do errands, I drove for about 10 minutes. At the stop sign, I stepped on the brake, the car won't stop like it used to! It rolled slowly and then stopped. It's like taking a much much longer distant to stop. I did not see anything abnormal on the dashboard except for the CE for the P2189 code! no smell of anything. I continued to drive the car at the normal speed (35 mile/hr) but kept a large distance from the car in front. About 10 minutes later, the brake felt normal like nothing had happened. I drove for another 10 minutes to reach my destination. 2 hours later, jumped in the car to drive home, the brakes felt normal. About 2 minutes the PSM light came on, brakes are still OK. 5 minutes later I pulled into the bank, turned off the engine for couple minutes then restarted the engine, the PSM light is OFF, the brake is normal... I drove home.
Now, where do I start troubleshoot the brakes and the PSM light? I don't have the Durametric tool. Or must I have the Durametric to troubleshoot? can I rent one from someone?
Your help is needed.
Thank you in advance for your assistance.
I am a member of the PCA and have changed brake pads numerous times on 5 different 911's totaling more than I can count on both hands. Does anyone know what the part numbers are for doing a break change (pads, rotors, sensors) on a 2008 Cayenne S
Hey guys new member here. Recently bought my 2000 Porsche Boxster S back in June and ran through plenty of problems since day 1 but today im a little lost. After a failed oil cooler, oil pump solenoid, new spark plugs, new window regulator, new AOS; im now stuck with a knock coming from from the driver side of the engine (U.S.) I haven't needed to get into the engine since I haven't had serious problems until now. Looking at similar knocks on YouTube, I think its a failed rod bearing. CEL came on for a Cylinder 6 misfire. I read at other posts about getting to them through the oil pan but can't find how. Besides pulling the oil pan, what else do I need to crack open? Do I need to remove the cross bar? By the way, I know something is going on because I pulled the oil pan off already and found alot more metallic flakes from wear and tear than usual. Im pretty sure the previous owner didn't do a oil change when he was supposed to. At this point, Im going to college with 5 classes and launching a business soon, so I hope im not stuck with a major rebuild. Planning to post pictures and video tomorrow. Thanks.
