2000 Porsche 996 Carrera 4

PostPosted: Mon Mar 04, 2019 6:44 pm    Post subject: Loose brake disc shields Reply with quote

I've had a bit of an annoying rattle coming from my rear end. Under inspection I noticed my rear brake disc shields were loose so seeing as I couldn't work today due to a planned power outage I thought I'd tale the opportunity to get it sorted. Ordered a couple from Bolton OPC and had a nice back road drive over there 1st thing to pick them up. Also had a good browse round the showroom including having a good gander at the 991 GT2 RS they have in worship


State of play with the old ones:

Mine rusted off! Well one of them disappeared, the other one corroded around a few bolt holes and began to scrape, so i removed it.

Currently running without... will probably try to fix when i get new rear discs on. Presumably not too expensive from OPC?

The bolts and washers that hold them on react due to disimilar metal reaction, can be sorted with penny washers.
But as Alex posted not daft money for new shiny things !

For those with a sharp eye, you may have spotted a light smear of copper grease applied Laughing

Wow, they were a bit wobbly mate Surprised

Are the new ones just pressed steel and painted, or galvanized Question

I presume they are galvanised. I was tempted to paint them but can't see them being just pressed out steel. Will see how they oxidise and take action if necessary.

Both mine went because of this, I had a heap of washers lying about so just did that to fix. When I get round to new discs I'll get some new ones fitted.

You may notice in the videos.......I'd already put big washers on previously on some of the bolts.

But the metal itself felt as solid as a bent crisp packet so thought it was about time I replaced them.
