Can loctite or a similar  compound be used on bolts 9921800501 and 90007548601.....I have been told Loctite 243 or 260 is suitable but I just wanted to check.

Thanks....I meant to note that I intend to reuse the old bolts and just apply loctite .....is that Ok to do ?.. The bolts are the  ones that attach to the crankshaft carrier to hold the chain guide and black plastic oil separato

I used the 243 (medium strength and can be loosen by hand tools) on the reused bolts when I rebuilt my m96. As long as those are not torqued to yield (torque + angle), it should be OK to reuse. 263 is the red threadlocker that will require applying heat to loosen. Should not be needed for m96 rebuild.

Hi again


When I asked this forum about their recommendations I had already logged a message with Pelican Parts on the micro encapsulated bolt issue. 


I was more than happy with the two responses I received from this forum. For that many thanks.


I wish I had not asked Pelican !!. They just came back to me saying;


....... Best practice is to replace them with new microencapsulated ones. None of us have enough experience with reusing them to make a solid recommendation. 


I intend to take your technical advice but thought you should know what Pelican had to say. .

I'd trust Ahsai on this one.  There are some that would have you do a lot of excessive things.  "Best practice" would be to never reuse any fastener, but it's impractical for all but factory race teams.

      This just started - When you turn the key to start the vehicle, there is a noise (hum) from the sub-woofer that's stays on until the starter cranks.  When the car starts, everything related to the radio is normal, but the LED on the Rear Defroster switch stays on all of the time.  I was told the Rear Defroster relay is bad so I purchase a replacement.  I'm having a problem locating this relay.  Is it located under the dash or behind the rear seat?  Which relay is it?

      The passenger side edge of my cloth top isnt going into the frame when I put up the top. The problem seems to be a strap pulling that portion of the top inward. However, there's the same strap on the driver side but the driver side sits perfectly snug. Any ideas? TIA

      Hello Porsche experts, I recently purchased a used 911 Carerra, 2003 and had the fuel pump fail.  So I looked around in Orange County to find a Porsche mechanic and ended up taking it to Hergesheimer.  They replaced the fuel pump but a few days latter I experienced something very troubling.  The car would start but idle was somewhat rough.  Revving the engine was a challenge in the lower RPM 1000-3000 then it became a bit smoother when driving with load on the engine in the 3000-4000 RPM range.  Alarmed by this I called the shop to bring the car in, but this was the day before the Rennsport Reunion in Laguna Seca so I dropped by another mechanic who brought up these error codes on a generic diagnostics tool:   P0134 Sensor Circuit No Activity Detected (Bank I Sensor 1) P0101 Mass Airflow Sensor / Circuit range issue Performance problem P0154 O2 Sensor no activity detected (Bank 2 post CAT ) P2098 Post Catalyst Fuel Trim System Too Lean Bank 2 P2096 O2 Sensor no activity detected Post Catalyst Fuel Trim System Too Lean (Bank 1) P0156 O2 sensor circuit malfunction (Bank 2 Sensor 2 post CAT)     Initially I thought this was related to the fuel pump replacement. So I called the shop who did the work and they said bring it over.  Their analysis identified similar codes and they suggested a few hours to review the harness and sensors in order to asses the problem.  A week later i am still trying to resolve this and wondered if I should replace the O2 sensors myself.   I have done brakes and other minor maintenance.  What is the opinion of the forum here on next steps?  I can provide further detail

      Hi all,
      I am new to the forum and the Porsche community! I am currently in the market for a 996 911 C4S.
      I located an EXTREMELY clean C4S with the following options and specs. Because I am new to the community, I am not exactly sure what it is worth. It seems there is a large discrepency between one comparable car to another on eBay (sold listings).
