    Porsche Boxster 986
  1. Soft top problems - it won't open

    For anyone struggling with similar issues - I got my problem fixed by disassembling left side motor assembly. In my version it contains an microswitch and a round metal plate that activates it. Either old owner or I had assembled that plate 180 degrees in wrong position - it didn't activate switch at all. After turning the plate and assembling everything it started to work just as expected.

  2. 986 Brake vacuum pressure

    Yes, installing an vacuum reserve is definitely an option to consider. Would you happen to remember any workshop manuals or similar that would mention correct vacuum pressure ?
  3. Hello I'm in the process of converting an 2000 2.7L 986 to full electric car. I have mostly everything sorted, car is moving and working. But to get it registered to road, I should prove that my new electric vacuum pump (Hella UP30) will provide enough vacuum for brakes. Does anyone know any workshop-manuals or any other "definitive source" for vacuum pressure or vacuum specs for the 986 brake system ? That would help me a lot, hopefully I would be able to prove that new system is adequate for brakes - certainly when driving, it feels just right. Thanks Henkka
  4. Hello I'm wondering what to do next with my -2000 2.7L 986 soft top. It won't open at all. Symptoms; - Nothing hapens if roof is closed and I press dashboard "open roof"-button. No sound of motor, no click of relay - nothing. - Handbrake light is lit when handbrake is engaged - Top works OK to other direction, eg. it closes ok when dashboard button is pressed - Roof control relay is switched to a brand new relay - Roof works ok to both directions if I apply 12V to roof motor directly - There is only 1 microswitch in the latch-mechanism on top of the windscreen. I have read that there should be 2 microswitches - is this always true or are there versions with just 1 microswitch also ? - Microswitch itself seems to work, I measured it with multimeter and it worked. Also if I open the roof and press microswitch, roof opening stops immediately. - Windows don't drop at all when I open the latch. But what I have understood, that should be controlled with that second microswitch that I'm missing alltogether. Background - I'm not sure how to top is supposed to work since I bought the car with top broken. Both aluminum "lifting"-parts were broken and also motor cable was teared. So I replaced them and aligned the roof as per instructions in Bentley manual. I'm a bit loss as what to try next. Any suggestions ? Best regards, Henkka
