  1. Yep, bad gas. Put some "Heat" or any gas treatment that mixes with water and put it in the tank.
  2. I have replaced two IMS bearings on 996/986 motors but I have not done a 997. Dropping the motor and splitting the case is much more involved ... Any tips?
  3. My spare is the expandable type. It fits in the back seat with the bottom cushion removed. You can use the jack from your Boxster but make sure you have a proper socket for removing the wheel bolts. As for the sealant, it's probably a good idea to replace with new. I didn't bother since I carry the spare. Also, as White987s mentions above, it's a good idea to carry a plug kit when taking trips.
  4. Is this site authorized to sell manuals???
  5. Congrats and thanks for the update. I was wondering how it was going.

    Wheel Hub Nut

    I'm curious to know what you decided to do? If you buy new, keep in-mind one axle is shorter than the other. Ask me how I learned that lesson... LOL.
  7. Or buy a space saver spare like I did. If you get the kit it comes with holder and case to keep the tire in-place (using the seat belt) in one of the back seats.
  8. It should be in the frunk. There is a cubby on the driver's side, at the bottom of the frunk, that has a carpet covered door hiding it.
  9. A bad water pump can be very noisy. Remove the belt and turn the water pump by hand, it should be smooth and quiet. If not, it needs to be replaced. You can also run the motor while it is cold, for a short period of time, without the belt installed and listen for the noise (as suggested by Loren above).
  10. Thank you for the follow-up, resolution, post.
  11. Air Oil Separator (AOS) would be my first guess.

    Lost Radio Code - post your request here

    Hi Loren, I got another Boxster, a 2001 S. Can you provide me the radio code? Becker CDR 220, Type 4462, Serial Number 15087566. Thanks
  13. You need to test drive the 4S, they handle quite different than the 2S. When you put the 4S in Sport mode it is a completely different machine. The way it handles the corners will put a smile on your face.
  14. I have the seat belt pillar rattle (driver's side) in my 2006 C4S and can't find any information other than this post. Does anyone have additional information on this issue? An assembly drawing might be helpful. Thanks
