Just changed the horse shoe part on mine today & finally got the horn working the way it should!

Some of you may have seen the work around to get it working without changing the module, but the horn needs a very hard press to get it to work that way.

The job its self was straight forward enough.
Once the wheel is taken off, there are 4 small torx bits & 1 small cap screw to take out of the lower cowling.
Once it is pulled down & the upper pulled up, you get access to the connectors in the back of the indicator stalks.
I put a length of insulation tape across the clock spring to hold it from moving first.

Once they are removed, the unit simply pulls off the front of the steering column. To swap out the module, you need to remove the clock spring by prying up three tabs holding it on (Yellow circle) & pull it off the front. Then loosen the 5 T9 torx bits underneath the clock spring to remove the module. Assembly is the reverse procedure.

In my case, it didn't require coding, & everything just worked.

Aye, the horn worked ok, but the guy at the MOT station was ready to fail it until I proved it did work...

Rob, I would list it in the for sale section as there are a few guys every month doing this mod as its one of the most popular mods for 997.1 owners after the induction kit. Thumb

PostPosted: Mon Jul 24, 2017 5:45 pm    Post subject: Update on the horseshoe bit... Reply with quote

To follow up on this, something I never tried after fitting the new horseshoe.

I've since found out that the headlight washers & rear wiper don't work.

Also, on Durametric it sees a fault as its looking for an auto box, so its obviously looking for the original car.

It appears that there is nothing I can do with Durametric to try & code it as theres not even an option of that.

Anyone on here know if this can be changed at a dealership or with PIWIS?

Clanky, it needs a vehicle handover performed with PIWIS - it can be done on certain systems other than PIWIS - as I got a local specialist performance car shop to do it - not sure what their system was called, although they do a fair bit of work on Porsche so have what is needed - it certainly wasn't PIWIS though.

If you have heated seats you may also find they don't work, its often the options that the car can forget it has after the battery has been disconnected for a long period of time.

Thanks for the info.
Looks like its going to be another expense to my local OPC to finally get this sorted out...

nooo

Try an indi or two first - i paid £10 into the tea fund at the local specialist that did mine and they aren't even a Porsche specialist - they are a general performance car specialist - and it certainly wasn't PIWIS they used - nor was it Durametric either!
