These are classic symptoms of the "dry joints in the clock" syndrome. I would put money on resoldering the joints on the inside of the clock PCB will solve all the problems.

Raymond,

It's not quite as simple as that. The cabin blowers are driven by the CCU via a final stage driver circuit which sits between the fuse box and the firewall. This is a bit of electronics...

It's the front RS sway bar that won't fit - RS'es don't have front drive shafts so those on the C4 get in the way!! The rears should be fine.

You need to confirm exactly WHICH model of LM you are talking about. The 8"/ET56 18" wheel is the LM099 which is fine for the front of a NB 964.

I believe the wider (6.5mm - 911.799.503.07) version is the original 964 fitment whereas the 4.3mm (993.503.393.00) part was standard on the 993. I tend to agree with the comment made above that the...

I thought I'd answered it. The spacer issue with VWs is merely to adapt the wheel fittings to suit a different bolt pattern so a minimum spacer width is all that's required. The issue with the 964...

Anthony,

10J wheels seem to work best on a narrow bodied car with an ET of 47. + or - a few mm won't make too much difference but it would suggest a 15mm spacer might be a better bet than 10mm.

Actually, it's the reverse. There are spacers and there are shims. You will find that shims are merely used with longer studs (no wheel bolts on a 964) and are available in widths of 3 to 7mm.
