    Non dealer repairs

    I need to replace a rear wheel bearing in my 99 P. I'm selling it in a few weeks, so I not so worried about keeping getting the work done at a dealer. Anyone know of any place in the North NJ area which can do Porsche work? The place I have my usual non-warranty work done doesn't want anything to do with mechanical work on a Porsche.

    By the way, the diagnosis is interesting. It's a loud (and getting louder) whirring noise from the rear of the car which is speed dependant but not engine speed dependent. It remains constant if I coast, but goes away if I stop and rev the engine. It also is not apparent for a minute or two after the car is started and still cool. If I make a hard left turn, thereby taking weight off the left side, the sound remains constant. If I take a hard right turn, the sound disappears. So it's something in the right rear wheel, most likely the bearing.

    Don't think that you'll get an answer here as this is the 997 board. Sorry!

    Re: Non dealer repairs

    I think the same people that repair 997s would repair 986s, don't you? There are more people reading this board at any time and I'm just looking for info.

    BTW ... my 997S is on the boat ...

    The Boxster rear bearings are a known problem. A friend of mine has one. True,--you would get a more intelligent answer from the Boxster board. We don't repair them. We simply DRIVE them. There are more people here right now as this is the newest model with more enthusiasts here.

    It's now posted on the Boxster ... feel free to respond!

    Thanks for the suggestion.

    Re: Non dealer repairs

    Sounds like a bearing to me. If you lift the wheel up and rock it side to side can you feel any play in it. This would confirm it alright but if there is no play then it doesn't mean the bearing is okay.

    I think your on the right track though.
