Thanks chaps. Thumb

Edit: Looks like front calipers are attached with 10mm hex and rears with 16mm bolts.

Worried that I might have provided duff information I have just taken both front and rear wheels off to check .

As the previous poster said - 10mm hex and front and 16mm socket on back.

But referring back to the original post, Madge did say REAR Brakes.

I really must read these things more carefully.

I believe you need a 10mm hex key socket to remove the calliper mounting bolts. (also called six point hex socket key)

Given the torque involved, I suggest it is mounted in a 1/2" drive socket. There is too much flex using 3/8" drive.

Whilst they need to be tightened to 85Nm (62ftlb) there can be corrosion between the calliper and the bolt if which necessitates even more effort to undo.

I will normally use an 18" breaker bar to "crack" the bolt off.


No, these bolts simply hold the caliper assembly together and are not used to mount the caliper to the hub, which I think is what OP was asking?.

Trev

Yep don't undo those you'll be in Dickie's meadow. Trickiest bit is releasing the handbrake shoes and getting the old wear sensors out without them crumbling. Jackal's blog covers it nicely. TBH is a real easy job.

Heater fan resistor - preventative maintenance

HVAC Engine compartment vacuum unit - due to failure


The HVAC unit is that for the variorum? If so do you mind sharing costs and how easy it is to replace? Also if there is a test to see if it is working correctly?

1998 Porsche 993 Carrera 4S

PostPosted: Mon Sep 11, 2017 7:01 pm    Post subject: Reply with quote

Some fairly boring expenses this week to help keep the old girl in shape.

New Headlight Switch 993.613.531.00 £54.72 plus vat less discount

Noticed a while back that the sidelight warning light would flicker and that a jab to the Headlight Switch would reignite it. Had this happen at the weekend on a run to Classics at the Castle, but this time when I jabbed the lights went out completely Surprised

I did plan to pull the switch apart and fix it as it was sure to be down to sticky connections. Unfortunately it wasn't to be as the switch is unserviceable and needed to be broken to get it apart.

Fitting was a bit tricky, but doable with an arm fully inserted under the dash from the footwell.

In addition to this I ordered a new Cat Heat Shield and associated fixings as the one on the car is a bit corroded and looking ratty.

Heat Protection 993.211.214.02 £84.26 plus vat less discount
Combination Screw x8 £1.68 plus vat less discount each
Combination Screw x1 £2.98 plus vat less discount
Washer x10 0.71 plus vat less discount each
Locking Bolt x10 £4.48 plus vat less discount each
Nut x 6 £3.27 plus vat less discount each

All told my bill for a switch, a piece of galvanised metal and a handful of fixings. £241.72 Surprised Those 'correct' fixings sure add up!

No - not the varioram, from what I know it's the unit that closes the ventilation and heating system when reverse gear is selected to stop fumes getting into the cabin when reversing - very cunning those Germans Grin

Christian identified the issue during a visit to him at his new place earlier this year - think he pulled a vacuum tube off and checked if it was blowing or sucking .. from memory, I don't think mine was doing either Question

I had my local Indy supply and fit the new vacuum unit, the price was £85.51 plus fitting.

You got me thinking about the HVAC vacuum unit now .. Hand

Have had a bit of a google and found this very useful info on testing from our good buddy Tore Thumb

Rear wiper arm and gasket to stop oil leak. Plus waiting for custom light fitting for ducted fog unit, thus retaining fog capability.

1997 Porsche 993 Carrera 2S

PostPosted: Thu Sep 21, 2017 9:09 am    Post subject: Reply with quote

I've got some goodies coming this week. I had a set of Boxster rear discs, pads and all the associated bits sitting in storage from early 2015. OPC agreed to take them back/swap for parts:

• Floor mat set (in black as Marble no longer available)
• Heater rear window switch as mine won't stay on unless I hold it out
• C2S gear knob/gaiter in Marble
• Rubber shroud thing that goes at the top of the engine fan

And then from the Bay, a Porsche Classic Navigation

Can't wait to get the gear knob on. Current one looks tired.

Still have a few bits on my list for the year; amber indicators/lights front and rear, rear reflector, fog lamps, underseat sub, a major service and a little bit of paint.

Picking up the Aventura Adventure that is my 993 from Precision this afternoon. Just continuing hacking away at the list of items a 155k car throws up:

1/ Repair horn low tone
2/ Fix relay to headlight washers
3/ Replace calliper plates, springs, sensors etc
4/ Lower control arm and toe arms covers
5/ Replace headlamp guide
6/ Repair driver's side door wiring loom as window function intermittent
7/ Repair drivers wiper arm
8/ Rear discs and new pads
9/ New calliper dust overs all round
10/ Steering rack brace as running 18" Twists
11/ Annual service

And some other bits and bobs I can't remeber.

Precision also now have some new Vehicle Health Check software highlighting any current or future issues based on a traffic light system. A few items but the worst was the steering rack brace with other jobs noting general wear and tear; so pretty happy tbh.

Next stop some paint to the bumpers and new exhaust system!

Nice work Matty glad to see you're bringing her up to tip top condition Smile

What's the above?, wear sensors?, new pads?, or you having them rebuilt?.

4/ Lower control arm and toe arms covers

I need some of these, are you sourcing via Porsche?

9/ New calliper dust overs all round

What is this?, piston seals?

It's addictive getting these smaller jobs ticked off! It's the pre-cursor to some bodywork repairs, sound system and wheel spacers i.e. the fun stuff..

Not a full calliper rebuild just essential maintenance. The control arm and toe covers are being sourced by Precision thus are genuine. The seals are the dust covers to the calliper bleed nipples. Not essential but nice to renew as a couple had split.

There were also some last minute tweaks such as re-clipping the pollen filters back into place, replacing various undertray fixings and ordering a damaged heater pipe from Porsche (currently on back-order).

ATB!

A new Mot, no advisories.

But!!! Home from Mot and front bonnet supports have packed up. New ones ordered, not expensive but looks like a nightmare job to do. Piece of wood being used in the meantime to hold up the bonnet Dont know
