  3. Took all the plastic off today, realizing that the dealership has apparently lost/broken all the screws that hold it on. Yet I see nothing wrong other than the coolant level being below the min mark. It appears that the overflow tank regurgitated through the cap. The two upper hoses are fine and what I can see of the lower one appears fine as well. I let it warm to operating temp tonight and it held perfectly. Oil level is perfect and no signs of any coolant in the oil either.

  5. I'm, going to be doing my oil change this year on my 2010 Porsche Cayenne V6 and I was wondering if someone knows what the torque settings are for the oil pan drain plug, oil filter drain plug and oil filter cap is? Thanks in advance.
  6. Hi.. doing the clutch in 996 C2 hopefully this weekend and think I need a RMS installation tool! Anyone out there want to sell or rent one? Thx Larry Shaker Heights, OH 216 645 7669
  7. I had a similar problem with my 02 boxster, turned out to be the O ring in the bleeder valve on the reseviour. I found out when I took the cover of the reseviour off, drove around, and parked it. When it started dripping on the ground I looked and saw it was from there. Dealership had the 2 o rings (one big, one small) for less than $4. Took it apart and turns out that the big O ring was tightened so much it ripped. Replaced and drove fine for a year. Leak happened again and it was the same o ring. This time I put a thin layer of silicone on it and it's been fine ever since! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. I've had to replace the reservoir on my 05 CTT because it was cracked and leaked out antifreeze behind the front passenger tire. It's not a difficult job, and it can be done in about and hour or two. If there's not much fluid left then your fine, if there's alot then either get a big bag or kitty litter or siphon it out. Remove the plastic covers on the passenger side, remove the passenger headlight (you'll need to take out the neck for the washer fluid, and there's a 16mm bolt to remove for the torque strut mount right under the tank), unscrew (at the engine) and take out the torque strut assembly, remove the torx screw that holds the tank on in the bottom, then remove the hoses that surround it and the main hose at the bottom. Install in reverse order. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Hi Loren. I need help as well. Just purchased this '02 Boxster and I don't have the code. CDR-220 Type 4162 S# 25014149 24/99 Any help will be most appreciated.
  10. I understand your frustration and empathize. Sometimes it helps to look at the parts diagram to see what you are dealing with. Here is one of the carbon canister and apparently the one nut that holds it in...I think, but I've never been in there http://www.autoatlanta.com/porsche-parts/hardparts.php?dir=996-99-05&section=201-20
  11. After taking out the fender liner for the 6th time, I realize I cannot remove the carbon canister to look for a valve behind it, there is apparently a mystery bolt which I cannot find. I also cannot find the electrically operated valve which opens and closes the hose which releases pressure from the fuel tank to check and possibly replace it. There are apparently three vent / shut off valves which make up the system, but they are very well hidden. This hopeless complexity is why I have resigned myself to take it to the dealer, as the agony of having to remember to bring a book to read when filling fuel into this thing exceeds (barely) what will certainly be the agony of ordering, locating and replacing these valves, just to learn (as with all the other things I have replaced so far at great expense) that none of them is actually the problem. Geez, replacing the IMS bearing, AOS and clutch was far easier than this. Yes, I am frustrated, but feel better now that my rant is over. Did I mention that my F-car refuels quickly (albeit too frequently) by simply pouring super unleaded into a big hole in its side?
  12. I found a youtube video showing how to take out the overflow reservoir on a Turbo version of the same car, looks like my leak has something to do with one of the overflow lines and its leaking under pressure, not leaking at all once the car cools down. Any gotchas to this?
  13. Yep. It's the offset, or total depth. Boxster rotor is 67mm deep, while the 911 rotor is 75mm deep. There's a parts supplier in the UK called Online Car Parts and they have technical drawings for each of the rotors from all of the manufacturers. It's a pretty nice resource! It's interesting to note that this seems to be the only difference. Even the parking brake shoes are the same, go figure.

    Thank you!. Will try it tonight. And yes, I read the FAQ after I posted and saw the comment about waiting 30 mins.

  16. baffling me.. which is easy… when I checked the specs on Excellence, the rotors for both 996 C2 and Boxster S are identical size: 299mm x 24mm. Pads also seem to be same for both cars. So, why arent part #s for the rotors the same? would love to know as I have found some Boxster S rotors, Porsche branded (Textar) for cheap $! Thx… I do run 17" Boxster wheels (narrower than 996 C2 18" wheels) in winter with snows and have no clearance issues at all. Some genius is out there that can help solve this mystery for us! Help! Thx…

    Hi - I could also use help. Just had my alternator replaced and now need my radio code. Got my 2001 Boxter a couple months ago but no books or radio card with the car. Serial # Y5024058 Type 4362 24/99 Also, when turning on the radio after the PORSCHE goes away it says 'wait' - At least that's what it did yesterday after the car was started a couple times. I don't see where I would enter a code? Does that mean my mechanic tried to enter a code and it locked up? (EDIT: - Just read you have to wait 30 mins) And advise would be much appreciated! Thanks, Rob
  18. Being a curious fellow I checked on some things. The front rotors are the same, but as you say, the rears don't match. Also, the calipers for each car are different part numbers. When you look at the stock wheel sizes the fronts are the same but the rears are different with the 911 wheels being 1/2" wider. This suggests that the offset might be different for the rotors. Just a guess, but it seems logical. I'm still curious what the real answer is. hmmmm

    When I was discussing this issue with the local Porsche dealer service manager, he looked up the model and SN and suggested 2796. Which ever one works, how do you test this without disconnecting the battery? Is there a menu choice on the radio where you are prompted for the code, when it is fully operational already?
  25. 06 S Today while sitting in traffic I heard a slight pop on the passenger side and saw smoke/steam fly out from the passenger side at the windshield. Temperatures climbed slightly over the next 10 minutes but came back to normal as I made my way home. Upon immediate inspection, I see nothing obvious except some coolant on the ground coming from behind the passenger front wheel, and the fill cap there at the windshield junction was a little wet. There was also a little on a bolt directly down from the torque arm. I do not know the routing of the lines or what to look for once I get this all off, if I can even see where the leak is coming from. Can someone explain the coolant line routing in that area and suspected fail points?
  26. I would be very careful with those levers. I have heard of broken ones and no replacement parts are available. Have to buy the whole assembly, or find one at a junk yard. I think you remove the bottom two screws and the whole assembly pops off with the levers still on. Then maybe you can put it on the bench and use some plastic tools to gently pry off the levers.
