Based on what you posted above, it should not be too challenging for you. Does Bentley make a manual for the 996? If not you are welcome to borrow the 964 manual. I'm betting it's pretty much the same.

    It looks like you can't buy the cables separately, which is what I did. Ouch.

    Yep. It's the whole assembly or nothing. I did find a used one, but that's a risk as well. I will read through the tech manual and see what it has to say.

    David - "a little TLC"??? You are being extremely modest. I will echo Mike's comments about "the lap of an enthusiast", you have rescued the life of a 996. Love those turbo wheels..... When you replaced the coolant did you use a vacuum device to pull the fluid through and eliminate trapped air?

    Lol. I guess it was more extensive than I had planned. And I missed a few things on that list....

    Yes, I used a vacuum filler. Found one at Princess Auto for under 80 bucks. It's a dream to use and also checks for leaks. Highly recommend it.

    I also have a pressure bleeder.

    These tools make the jobs so simple. IMO

    Almost Ready

    New center caps arrived to replace the Turbo ones. I decided to clear coat them as the last ones I purchased for my Cayenne started to flake.



    Also, pulled the brakes apart again as my coilovers should be here soon and I noticed that I put the discs on the wrong side. Didn't realize the fronts have a left and a right. I guess the drilled holes were a clue.

    Congrats on the purchase & all the work David!
    Great to see another 911 in the hands of a hands-on enthusiast!
