Bought this to replace the bulb behind the battery gauge (996), never installed. $10 8 ) Bosch 0 232 103 022 brand new & unused. Camshaft position sensor bought for 996 3.4L. $80 sold 9) China yum cha 996 MAF and IACV. Good luck with these, about as reliable as a paper umbrella. $20 for both. 10) Genuine Porsche 996 911 wind deflector for cabriolet. $350. Can't find a listing for another one in Australia. Greatly reduces wind buffeting with the top down. To install, simply fold down both the rear seat backs, and this slots into place, folds down when not in use. Some repaired joints as pictured (can be painted over to hide the appearance). Shipping interstate for this item is $40.This may also fit 997 but cannot guarantee, do your own research. 11) (not pictured) bosch 0 261 210 204 crank position sensor, installed for a few months in a non running car then removed sold
  2. I had this occasional issue with my 996 cab - I remember that adjusting that hex a half turn either way (the one dead centre of your last picture) would make it work fine again for a few months. There was also a tech document mentioning adjusting a metal limit switch a few mm would also correct it
  3. I had an old blackridge cheapie from SCA from years ago, and it worked fine to vacuum refill my 996. Also useful for a bunch of other jobs eg impact wrench, tyre inflation, and I even painted my S15 bodykit with it too (with a bunch of water traps and air pressure regulators), but it's a noisy bugger and small air capacity. More than enough to draw a simple vacuum.
  4. Still available. I was using it for 3 years with those repairs without a problem. It's not like the wind deflector is a load bearing structural piece of the car
  5. 22" turbo-style wheels with tyres - $2000. Pickup Melbourne Only done around 3000km! Like new - wheels were ceramic coated first, then added another coat of wax inside & out. No scratches or marks that I can see. Tyres almost 100% tread, even wear (not much wear at all) Fis perfect on my 2004 turbo, no scrubbing on full lock, clears big brakes no problem. Looks amazing and modern. Car also for sale - see my other post.
  6. For sale - two coilpacks. Beru 996 602 102 00 Bought them as spares for my 1999 911 996 tiptronic cabriolet. Bought from dparts, sold me as used parts, tested and in working condition. I never got around to installing them. Could also fit 986 boxster, check for yourself Both for $60 pickup melbourne, or +$10 interstate postage
  7. $350. Genuine Porsche 996 911 wind deflector for cabriolet. Can't find a listing for another one in Australia. Greatly reduces wind buffeting with the top down. To install, simply fold down both the rear seat backs, and this slots into place, folds down when not in use. Some repaired joints as pictured (can be painted over to hide the appearance). Pickup Box Hill North or Niddrie, shipping interstate $40. This may also fit 997 but cannot guarantee, do your own research.

    Safari Cayenne...

    Toying with the idea of selling my 955 Turbo (Melbourne) with low kilometers (just ticked over 110,000km) in case anyone's seriously looking for one. But might be a bit too clean and nice to turn into an offroader! High 20s.
  9. Bought for my 996, never installed, new in box. Probably fits a bunch of other models, check for yourself. Replaces a reverse light lens, and camera mounts off the side. Really neat way to add a reverse camera. Distance between screw holes is 60mm centres. $OLD
  10. Complete double DIN installation kit for Porsche 996 911, probably fits 986 Boxster but up to you to determine if suitable for your car. Includes double DIN fascia, as well as a lower fascia with pocket to relocate your climate controls to the lower dash. Also includes wiring harness adapter if you have the standard (non Bose) amp, so you can keep the factory amp, and use your RCA outputs from the new head unit. You need this, or your new stereo will have no sound! SOLD
  11. Six genuine Beru coilpacks like new. *** SOLD*** Was installed in my 996 3.4 for a few hours then removed (engine had problems that coil packs couldn't fix 😣). These are the upgraded "997" spec coil packs and include longer bolts. Should fit 986 Boxsters. Possibly 997/987, but check part numbers to make sure suitable for your car. Pickup Box Hill North, Croydon South or Niddrie Vic, can post Australia wide with tracking for $20 (allow 2-3 weeks as postage is very slow right now)
  12. Good to hear the potentiometer is now reconnected, that'll go some way to fixing the issue as it dictates the operation of many other parts of the roof mechanism The flaps not turning is a common fault. You may need to grab a long allen key and turn the hex nut located in the little circular flap where the hardtop inserts to, just a half or full turn, in order to reset it a little. There's also a microswitch thingy in the side flap that sometimes needs to be bent a tiny bit. Also lubricate the vertical screw thing with some silicone spray. The front locking mechanism - the hook in the roof? You may want to remove the little plastic flap that covers the hook, and check the gearing mechanism in it to make sure it's not stripped first before looking for other issues
