Bill replied to Shin Goto's discussion Is Anybody know the reasonable shop to buy Damper plate ?
"First, I agree with Ken... $750 is a great price. I searched the part number you provided above and found an online vendor that listed that part number for $753.28 for a 968. Was this the price you found as well? That same vendor also listed that…"

Bill replied to Daniel J.'s discussion Tranny noises and strange knocks...any ideas please ?
"I have experienced the "knocking" sounds that you describe. Mine turned out to be the inner baffles of the exhaust system. Once replaced, which was not cheap, the sounds went away. When I heard the sounds initially, I would have sworn that…"
