Treated the car to a protection detail. Minor swirl marks removed, paint cleansed and coat of wax on. All ready for the run north on the NC500 at the end of September.

I have replaced the rear screen wiper arm. Part ordered from Car Parts 4 Less at reasonable cost I believe.

Looking at the stunning RS in previous post has me thinking about returning my iris blue 993 to original with amber front indicators to replace the clear currently fitted.

1997 Porsche 993 Targa

New fuel filler cap. Rubber washer had perished and the cap itself was knackered.

1995 Porsche 993 Carrera 4

PostPosted: Sun Aug 20, 2017 4:26 pm    Post subject: Reply with quote

The big 24k mile service completed with a brake fluid change and gearbox oil change. All carried out by my trusted indie Zentrum Porsche in Calverton near Nottingham.

Very impressed once again with their attention to detail, my brake hubs were looking a bit scruffy so they repainted them. The small Porsche crest from the key was missing so they replaced it. As always a full video record of the inspection recorded and any issues shown as part of the collection debrief.

First class service all done within the quoted price, highly recommended.
Very Happy

A C-TEK MXS5.0, though technically it can be used on my other cars - but I did get the permanent 'Comfort Indicator' exclusively for the '993 Grin

Fitted a new vacuum unit as the original was not correctly installed. Also replaced the vacuum pipe and the 2 elbows plus a couple of new bolts.
Full tank of petrol and a good drive around some Hampshire Roads. I am convinced the car is more responsive.

Just working up to having my already in stock Fsd shocks fitted.

I got both front and rear windscreens re-installed by Paul at Glasstech. Creaking has vanished, and hopefully he stopped some surface rust which was appearing behind the trim. A really thorough job.

Two of these waffle drying towels:
http://www.carparts4less.co.uk/cp4l/p/-/-/-/-/?549771701&0&cc5_133&gclid=Cj0KCQjwoZTNBRCWARIsAOMZHmE-JrepdgQJEO5EMTFDfIuIOMkr8wJ8-HrI2ONvrQjnt9TELvYMogEaAkimEALw_wcB

Work really well - just using the 'blot dry technique' . Bargain at £3.96 each delivered.

AND my first experiment with a quick detailer:
https://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/sonax-xtreme-brilliant-shine-detailer-691-with-code-carparts4less-2755845

That's about half the price at most detailing product websites - looks as if carparts4less are getting in this sector of the market.

Fabulous results on my big black daily - gave it the real glossy wet look. So just applied to the 993 too.

One of the best and simplest mods, a 1" spacer for my 968CS steering wheel. Already have an offset spacer so plenty of knee room and a more relaxed driving position. From FVD quite expensive for what it is but well worth it.

Sebro discs and Textar pads for the rear. £167.98 with discount from ECP, which I thought was pretty good.

I'm going to have a go at fitting them myself, which might be a big mistake but I'm hoping it's just within my capabilities. We shall see! (update: I'm ashamed to say that even this simple job wasn't within my capabilities. It all looked so straightforward in the videos! Sad Sad)

Does anyone know what size the hex-bolt is that holds the calipers on?

16mm socket required

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?.
