Technical/Tips and Tricks etc


PCGB Admin
Opening a new thread here for you to share your knowledge with other members. These could be technical articles, information regarding DIY work on your car, tips and tricks, advice regarding problems you have encountered (a recent 997 engine mount failure comes to mind!) or anything else you feel would be of interest and benefit to your fellow members.
I will pin this thread so that i will be readily available from the thread list.
An obscure problem 981 PDK Cayman:

Turned key to first position - ignition on. Key won’t turn further to start engine.

AA man says, "it’s lost the connection to the immobiliser Sir, often happens” Recovery truck ordered.

More in hope than anything I call a mate in Germany who says "check the fuses are all seated correctly as they sometimes come out on our race cars with the extra vibrations”

The fuse that controlled the electric steering lock had migrated from its seat, I pushed it back in and car could be started.

Very obscure indeed, Ralph. I have enough trouble trying to get one of those out and didn't realise they could do it on their own!
