Porsche Water Pump Replacement
Here's the water pump replacement on a 1999 Porsche 911 996. The Boxster
986 uses the same water pump but has a somewhat different layout and
procedure. Sorry for the shakiness. I didn't have a tripod short enough for
under-car shots, so I was one-handing it while working. I also apologize
for kind of skipping over the entire reassembly process, but we're limited
to 10 minutes, and it's just the reverse of the disassembly. I backed my
car onto ramps for this to give myself additional camera clearance, but
I've also done it with the car on the ground. Visit renntech.org for great
DIY instructions and tips to complement this video.

The IMS Solution
The IMS Solution is the only permanent solution to catastrophic IMS bearing
failures by the complete omission of the problematic single row ball
bearing. The IMS Solution fits model year 2000 through model year 2005
engines with the single row bearing IMS. The IMS Solution does not fit
models with a dual row IMS bearing or the model year 2006 or later type IMS
bearing. For more information visit http://www.theimssolution.com
DIY - changing front brakes on a water-cooled Porsche
Here's a tutorial of changing front brakes on a Porsche 996. It also
applies to 997s, Boxsters and Caymans.
This is part 1 - disassembly. See part 2 for reassembly (and other videos
for rear brakes and how to deal with stripped screws).
How to Restore a Black 996 Porsche Track Car
This is a buddies car that I needed to restore after many years of track
days and little to no detailing/cleaning. In this longer video, I discuss
the different steps and products used to restore the paint to near
perfection. I also introduce a few new products for "claying" your paint,
and show the differences between a rotary polisher and DA polisher. (It is
a bit on the long side, but its important to understand the thought process
behind paint correction prior to working on a difficult job such as a
Porsche 996 in black.) Hope this is helpful. Send me emails if you have
additional questions. Thanks guys. -L

Porsche 997 911 Oil Change Video
Ok, this video is how to change the oil in a Porsche 997 911 fitted with
the 3.8L engine found in the MK1 version of the said 997 Carrera S. But
having said all that this could be of use to anyone with a 996 as well,
hell, its an oil change so it could be of use to anyone with an engine! The
principal is the same for most engines, you will just have to imagine the
engine at the front of the car in most other instances. Few!
Now, back to the relevance of doing the oil change on a 997... Infrequently
used 997s can some times build up a mixture of water vapour and oil in the
oil filler tube. This leads to what looks like mayo under the filler cap.
Heavy water beading can drop into the engine. This is not good, so this is
why I would recommend changing the oil once a year and don't do any more
than 4000 miles in any one service oil change interval.

Engine failure when the timing chain snapped. Not know at the time but it
broke the Intermediate Shaft and bent 10 valves along with a host of other
minor issues. The engine cut out which saved a lot more damage. I was

Changing fuel filter on a 996 C4
