Technical questions

Air - Con What's the recharge weight of refrigerant needed?
Noble state:- 1KG but 950g has been suggested by a few people. Lubricant is PAG oil ISO 100

Hub nuts. What's the Porsche part number?
P999.084.641.02 LOCK NUT. It's a Boxter part and costs under 3+vat. You do not need to drill the hub, it will be fine as is. Hub nuts only needed for the rear of the car, the front nuts are a different size and do not work loose anyway.

Tyre Pressures What are the recommended pressures for M12 and M400?
M12 - Front: 18psi Rear : 27psi
M400 - Front: 20psi Rear: 30psi

Torque settings
Wheel bearing: 270Nm
Wheel nut: 130Nm 95 ft/lb
Brake Disks
Standard disks are drilled. Slotted or groved disks provide a better "feel" and are generally easy to modulate. They also cope with heat better than drilled version and are more resistant to cracking.
Slotted AP discs are available from Plans Motorsport and main dealers. The rear disks are also now available for the M400/3R/3. Slotted/grooved discs are available for the rears on 2.5L cars.
AP330 Front Grooved Disc LH
AP330 Front Grooved Disc RH
These are genuine AP discs AP Part Number CP3580 - 1131/0 - CR8 - usual retail price 253.28 inc VAT plus shipping each.
CP2494 - 18 Bell fitting kit
These discs are a straight swap for the standard discs and are an easy DIY fit.
Front discs (grooved AP Racing) come as rotors only, and you need to get fitting kit to attach them to the bell (12 nuts/bold for each side).
Removal of old nuts/bolts may be problematic as they tend to weld together with the heat.
Note that you need 3/16AF Allen key for the bolts (Latest ones use torx heads so you need a female torx socket). The torque for the bolts is 11 lbs/ft or 14 Nm
Bedding - in procedure for new discs (note:- use old pads) from AP Racing site below

One Owner Comments:
"I've tested the stock pads, DS2500's, DS3000's and Pagids. I believe that the best combination of the ones that I've tested are the Pagid's* and the AP grooved front disks.
DS3000's will stop you quicker than DS2500's but overheat the disks under hard track/race use and cause the brake fluid to boil . They are also more snatchy (lockable) than the 2500's although you can cure this by adjusting the dampers. With the Pagids you'll get better brake modulation (feel) and they don't require warming up to function which is important for road use. They do squeal at low speeds. Note that I don't use extra ducting for brake cooling. The DS3000's actually roasted the rear disks as well as the fronts and I doubt that we could have done much about their temperatures with extra brake cooling hoses. What did make the difference were simply better pads."
D_G reports:-
My handbrake has always been pretty bad and after trying a quick adjustment which didn't feel right took the disc off and found one of the shoe linings laying in the bottom of the drum. I've also had an intermittent scraping noise from that side recently which now adds up. Looks like a previous service dealer has got a bit
overexcited with the adjustment as the other side is still OK.
Ordered some new shoes from the factory today but would recommend anyone with a dodgy handbrake to have the shoes looked at and not just adjusted through the discs. Found the driver's side footwell full of water a couple of weeks ago after leaving it in the heavy rain and found that the floor of the car under the front clam on the driver's side had a small pool just sitting there (presumably flowing down off the windscreen and then seeping slowly into the cabin). Wondered why this had never happened before and found that the floor has small holes drilled in (I guess to drain any water flowing in) but they were full of stones/grit that had collected over time and were acting as plugs.

Fuel Smell
Fuel smells in the cabin and around the car are most likely to be from the breather pipe. The pipe runs from the filler neck between the cap and tank. Its purpose is to vent the tank as it gets hot and to allow air in as the fuel level goes down. It also acts as an overflow of you overfill the tank. The pipe runs into the compartment behind the panel in front of the rear NS wheel. It should poke out of the panel to atmosphere. Often the end of the pipe perishes and it pulls back into the compartment. This means the tank vents into the sill and compartment area and can trap the smell. It also means that any overflow can run straight into the compartment. The most common modification is to use a P - clip to trap the pipe using one of the bottom screw holes holding the panel in. In some cases, the smell can be from a fuel leak. This is most likely to be from a connection inside the pump/filter compartment. The seal may also have failed in the filter causing a drip where the two halves connect.
Fuel line Removal from fuel rail, There's a special tool that releases the fitting - it slides in from the rail side, and moves a spring out of the way so that the connector can come off. Tool is pretty cheap - you can
get a plastic one for a few bucks. Or, you can get a little piece of metal tubing (something that fits around the tube coming off the fuel rail, around .063" wall thickness), split it in half lengthwise, put it around the tube coming off the fuel rail, and push it into the connector, then pull off the connector. Or, use something like a thin, flexible piece of plastic, like a piece of a juice container, beverage bottle, or oil container. Cut a piece, wrap it around the tube, and slide it into the fitting until it bottoms out, then pull the fitting off the rail. Picture of the fuel line connected the fuel rail
