Hopefully that's all it is. Thumb

I had a similar issue with a crank sensor and a coolant temp sender when mine was laid up for 3 months with the engine out.


Well the idle seems fixed. solid now 950 or so, knock aircon off and it drops to 650. When turning AC back on it wavers a little but settles at 950 Very Happy

However, there is now a bit of a driveline clunk click on/off the power Sad Sad Sad

I double checked the bell housing bolts and inner cv bolts are all tight.

Hopefully its not the flywheel bolts....I did them up to spec, very tight - they are to a torque + required degrees of turning. I did it up with the old bolts first, then applied threadlock and used new bolts. I can't imagine them coming loose.... clutch feels fine.

Hopefully its something to do with the discs / pads / handbrake shoe replacement. I checked wheel bolts they are OK.

There is a little more rotational play in the NSR driveshaft than the OSR. But its perhaps too much of a coincidence to be something unrelated to work I did... how much is "normal" do we think?

I've traced this to the alloy cross brace under the gearbox after some misdirection by a local MOT place telling me it was coffin arms.

I grabbed it in the middle and it made a loud creaking noise. Really loud. I couldn't believe it. As it ties the subframe together there must be some load on it under power.

Dropped it, cleaned up the mounting faces with a wire brush of any corrosion or muck and reinstalled.

No more creaky clunk click!!!!

Car is perfect (mechanically), better than it ever has been.

I am very happy Clap Drive this is what a 911 should drive like.

Thanks a lot to everyone who helped me out in this thread Bow I owe each of you a pint.



Now to deal with the failed lacquer on the previously resprayed wing....but I might just enjoy it for a while.

I haven't even washed it for 12 months! a whole year! is that a record? My life has been mad with births, deaths and clutch replacements. I think it deserves a polish ASAP.



This photo reminds me, my wifes golf needs a new turbo because the wastegate pivot keeps seizing Sad £550 part at 5 years and 38k miles. Sad That was supposed to be our "reliable" car. VW want £1600 to do it, sack that.

Oh and I need to build a new porch that I promised to do 4 years ago Sad
