  2. Hello what amp fuse did you use for the empty slot 27? I ha e the same exact problem. My car is 09 Turbo S
  3. Hey all, Well my 1999 986 Boxster S (a late 99), has developed an issue. The roof is stuck down. When I try to raise it, the motor clicks, and that’s it. Have checked fuses. Not sure it is the relay, as the motor is getting power. Could it be the micro switches in the latch base? Oh, the roof light remains on always. Cheers

  5. This happened on my 996. The vibration kills the cats on this car and, indeed, the honey comb breaks apart. Sometimes you can hear this if you hammer on the cat with a rubber mallet. For sure you can hear it once the cat is off and you shake it. You can take your old cats to a scrap metal card and get $200 or so (metal prices have changed a lot don't know market price) Chances are your bank 2 is not far behind (you can monitor this with Durametric, I have posted on this in the past) so I would replace them both if you get a good deal on a used set. Once yo
  6. Hello, I realize this is an old post but I just had the same thing happen as jss02996. I was starting my car and when I turned the key the roll over popped up. The rollover is up and my top is up/closed. I have no electrical issues other than my CD stopped working months ago. I have not done anything yet. I was going to lower the top until I read jss02996's post. I don't think I can get them down unless I lower the top. I do have a durametric in case I need to reset the roof, but I thought it was good to ask before I do anything. Any help would be
  7. I am doing the same. My manometer will be here by the weekend. All I need to do is make the connection to the oil filler cap. I was over at my friend's place yesterday and ran my code reader on it again after some codes popped up again. It looks like he has two less codes on the Readiness cycle since last week. All that is left stating "Not Ready" is the Evaporative System and Secondary Air Injection. I don't know his 997 or my own 991.1 GTS like I know my 993 (like the back of my hand). I had a quick look in his engine compartment and this is what I noticed. Nice that
  8. Hey Michael, I have a set that I just removed from my 00 base with 40k miles. They work fine, I switched to aftermarket headers. I'm not willing to separate the pair but will sell them both to you if you are interested.
  9. Hi Everyone, I recently purchased a 2016 Porsche Cayenne Rear seat dvd entertainment system to retrofit. I have search online for installation instruction to no avail. No video on youtube on how to retrofit. Is there any website or link where I can get the installation instruction or parts needed to for the installation? I appreciate your response.
  10. Hi Everyone, I've been experiencing exhaust rattles on my 2002 986 S for quite a while now. The last time I brought my car for maintenance I've asked the shop to take a look at the whole exhaust system. Conclusion was that the honeycomb structure in the cat built in the passenger exhaust manifold is failing apart causing the rattling noises I'm hearing. Shortly after this the ECU started to throw the error code below : P0420 - Catalyst System Efficiency Below Threshold (Bank 1) I haven't taken the manifold out yet but the diagnostic
  11. Hey, do you have any pictures of this is in the engine bay and where it attached in the wheel well? I am trying to replace the purge valve on my 987.1 part 98711012801, which sounds like the same job you did.
  12. Last week
  13. Hello, I am hoping to find here some tech gurus who might be able to help me with this nightmare I have in my hands. I am an automotive tech with 30+ years of experience but limited experience on Porsche and don't own a Porsche specific scanner. Other than that I have access to quite a bit of aftermarket information but unfortunately most programs I have access to have limited Porsche info as well. I also purchased subscription from the OEM and found proper wiring diagrams, but also not enough information on Transfer Case module. I am stubborn enough to believe I have a CAN problem but I need
  14. Whenever I go to close the rear engine hood, I have to slam it to close and latch. Is there a simple fix so that I can close the hood more easily? I concerned that I’m going to break something. Thanks
  15. I built this for $47 and have been using it on my car since I replaced the AOS. I plan to monitor it every ~6 months or so to study the signal over time and help me know when I could have a vacuum leak, in the AOS for example. I will still do the AOS every 50K miles regardless because a marginal one can affect your engine's health or even destroy an engine if the vacuum is too high. A lot of times you will see these devices being sold as HVAC devices but these can have multiple purposes as you say. You can use it on multiple cars as long as you have the gas cap fitting made for
  16. Recaro seats are well know and have a good reputation. That said, I think the issue more buying the correct fitting seat mounts.
  17. Hi. I just replaced the battery in my 1999 996. I don’t have the radio code. Please help. Thank you! type 4362 serial W5007948 CR-220
  18. Anyone have experience with recaro seat as replacements for stock rather than reupholster for a 2000 996 cab
  19. Thanks Loren! Im now able to sign on and access Fm and everything else but no sound was playing. Any pointers of where to start? D8 and 9 fuses looked ok. Any other direction you may have is greatly appreciated!
  20. Hi gang, in need of radio help for my 99 986. cdr-220 serial code: w5008755 type: 4462 thank you!!!
  21. A few weeks ago I saw a lot of fluid on the ground under my Boxster, I jacked it up and found that it was coming out of the differential. I thought the seal was bad but actually the short inside axle had pull out about 2 inches. Can anyone tell me why the pulled out? As far as I can see there is not bolt or anything that holds it in. I removed it entirely and compared what I saw to a picture on Pelican and there is gaps between each of the bearings and the green plastic (spacer I guess). I reinstalled it with a new seal but I am concerned that I didn't fix the is
  22. It is not uncommon to see a pin pushed out of the connector from people ramming the headlights into place. Check both the socket and the plug ends. Look for a pin or a receiver pushed back or damaged. Also check for a cracked connector housing.
  23. I recently bought a set of Litronics headlights for my Mk 1 996 for $950 - they're in great condition. I replaced all the bulbs and find that everything is working, with the exception of one parking light bulb - the tiny one next to the high beam. I've eliminated that it's a bulb issue and I'm stumped as to what else it might be. The wiring is showing age, but I put a multimeter across the circuit and everything appears normal. If both bulbs were out I might figure it was a fuse, but it's only this one bulb in one unit. I would appreciate any guidance that anyone
  24. Good info JFP and Silver_TT! I bought some of the components to make a smoke machine but haven't been able to get to the hardware store to get the rest of the items. As for a manometer, I have one on order. I can use it for other purposes as well.
