2004 Porsche 996 Turbo

Thanks for the kind words, you don't have to wait long Smile

I am going to start putting the interior back together ready for getting the glass in. First job is to change the shift cables from the standard ones to the cup ones.

The shift tower is already out, so just need to undo and remove the handbrake assembly, 4 nuts holding it down and a pair of locking 13mm sockets for the adjustment and it lifts off.





The grommet then pushes out from inside, or pulls out from underneath. There were a couple of metal tabs on the inside which needed bending up slightly to get clearance for the plastic parts to fit through.





Old and new cables side by side. Note the metal fittings and thicker cables on the cup units.





Apply a bit of lubricant so it is less painful to insert, and push/pull the new cables in from underneath.



I then gave the inside a quick clean up with a damp cloth and vacuum cleaner ready for trial fitting of the main carpet section.

Dropped the carpet in place, looks like it fits OK, the cutouts for the front bar are not in the right place as it is clearly different between the cage I have and the GT3 front cage. I need to take the front cage section out to get the dashboard to fit in.

This could end up being the best 996 on the planet. Every morning I read your progress, and every morning I shake my head in amazement of what you're capable of. You are a ninja of many facets.
My only ninja skills are catching things that are falling and spotting pregnant women before they announce it to the world. And no it's not because I make them preggers before you all chime in. Grin
Great stuff. This will end up in a magazine spread for sure.

TBH I think most people can do what I'm doing, if they were just daft enough to try it and had the patience to see it through. I don't have any specialist training in this, I'm an electronics engineer who just like messing about with cars.

This is the route the ancillary belt will be taking with the power steering pump removed.



It is very similar to the standard route, rather than measuring the entire belt I just measured the difference between the two paths with a trusty USB cable I found on my desk..





The difference is about 50mm. I'll see if I can get one the right length. The standard one fits but is a little loser than I would like. I believe that 2115mm is the original spec.

I managed to get the front cage out without smashing it in to the paintwork or causing other damage, so I can now drop the dashboard back in place ready for some screws.

This really is an amazing project which the finished car will be testament to and i just can't believe how you remember how each screw goes back together, i struggle after 2 minuets let alone 2 years. Really looking forward to seeing it come back together, keep up the excellent work.

I don't remember. Where I can I put bolts and screws back as I go along, otherwise I put them in labelled bags, failing that I look it up on the parts diagram.

Car looks stunning, massively impressive!

I’m doing my cables soon, numeric racing rather than cup but same deal, may I ask you a couple of questions.

What’s the other cable in the grommet?
Also with the box in place is there much else to remove that may be in the way? I appreciate you may not know this as yours is stripped!

Ask anything you like, I'm doing this to help others and share the fun. As you say mine is stripped so not easy to see what would be in the way for the cables from underneath. For the interior you would need to remove the console and handbrake, but that is all pretty easy. The grommet and cables came out without and great difficultly. The other cable is a thick power cable.

Super thanks. As usual hoping to remove the minimum of items then starting and realising I’m taking loads of bits off!!
