Here`s the diagram of the pipework, the rear hoses are the same style as the front ones that fail, it may be the same fix if you are lucky Thumb

Google “gumi pflege”. It is what the German manufactures all use. It is the best stuff for rubber seal sqeaks/rattles/creaking noises. Don’t put silicon based products on them

Got it Smile...but it didn’t work so took the door apart and lubricated where the cable ran. The squeak has gone but it’s still a bit slow, I think the angle of the glass against the rubber could be it as it’s faster when the door is open

You can adjust the door glass angle from underneath the door, look for the rubber bungs to pop out.

The power steering hose can probbaly be fixed by a hydraulic specialist like Pirtek in situ rather than dropping the engine.

Just had a look and there’s a drip from under the bracket. There must be a join under there so need to take that plastic bracket off tomorrow and see what’s what.

I think it’s this join (top red circle), might be some kind of O ring if I’m lucky

Just picked this up from Euro Car Parts (£151.46)...now just need to find the time (and instructions) to fit it...or someone else to do it. Getting bored of topping up

And does the fuel line have to come off?

This video says it does (US video so has some other parafanalia attached which mine doesn’t)

I changed the tank on my '98 C2. Just dropped the engine a bit from what I remember, no fuel lines off.

I had the issue with pas lines on old 996

The issue is one line is high pressure and the other is low pressure. They have probably corroded through age and use so will need replacing

Absolute pig of a job and had to have new lines in the end. Well I say new as Porsche don’t make them anymore so got some used ones from 9part

Am afraid mine was engine out job to do the lines as there is just no room to get out or re route the new ones in.

Good luck and hope it’s not as bad as mine was

Thank you, really hoping it doesn’t come to that as I have to maintain a strict budget. Will post the spend to date later this evening.

It isn't hard, support the engine on a jack. Undo the rear mount nuts, and lower the engine a couple of inches. Nothing is disconnected from the engine.

That is because you can only see part of it. Trust me, it won't.

I’ll post my spend to date in a minute and you’ll see how much needs doing...might as well hand it into a garage and bite the bullet.

BTW, got the replacement one from Eurocarparts, anyone heard of any problems with those?

Are you sure that the £150 expansion tank is the correct one, year 2001 onwards, the more expensive one £229.99 up to year 2000 on ECP is the correct one I think Question They are different tanks Grin

You need a Porsche themed flat cap in your videos, you know it`s da rulez Grin
