I am missing the shift knob insert to my Boxster S 6 speed and cannot find a replacement anywhere without having to buy a whole new shifter... Does anyone
have one they would like to donate or sale? Or does anyone have any ideas on how to get one. Its just the insert that fits on top of the shifter Reverse through 6th...
Or does anyone have any ideas on how to make one? I am at a loss and it looks raty without the insert.....
Thanks in Advance!

Hi. Im new in this forum, and i registered search for help, so thanks in advance.
I bought a 97 boxster tiptronic, with no issues at all. Scanned, everything was ok. Then i started to read about the model, and i was concerned about de IMS, so i replaced it with parts from Pelican. I took the oportunity to drain the torque converter and replace fluid (filters gaskets also) on the tiptronic transmission. Then my mechanic built everything, and the lights on the gear and lever on the panel were blinking. Also cant use "manual mode" nor the 5th gear. He checked everything, but the problem are still there.
Searched on the interenet, seems to be something called "limited driving programme" where the transmision limits itself in event of a failure. On the internet also i found most of time is related with transmision servicing, but i changed all fluid (torque converter including).
I used the recomended ATF by manual (pentosin) and changed filter, gaskets from ZF (the transmission manufacturer).
Sadly, i live on a small city in Northern Chile, almost 2000km from a Porsche authorized mechanic in capital, Santiago, so its not an option to take the car there.
My mechanic here is a really honest guy, but he seems to not understand this transmission. I dont know what to do, but ill scan the car in a few hours.
Any advice will be hughely appreciated guys. Thanks a lot.
I need some help reconnecting the vacuum hoses on my '03. Had to remove tiptronic to repair it, and either have a broken vacuum hose, and/or am as lost as I can be. I can't figure it out. Here is the vacuum diagram from the trunk. Part of the problem is, that I can't identify all the parts.
The "white" connector goes into the intake. Off of that is a "Y". The "Yellow" line (vacuum hose) goes nowhere that I can tell. I am sure it connects somewhere, I just can't tell where. It is long.
The "Pink" end of the "Y" is open. I am sure something sticks in there, just not too sure what.
The "Green" line (vacuum hose) connects to what I believe is the Resonance Flap Valve. However, it is either broken (and connects with the "Blue" line (vacuum hose)), or inserts into the "Pink" end of the "Y". Not too sure which.
The other end of the "Blue" line (vacuum hose) connects to a 4 way "Cross fitting", that connects to the vacuum reservoir. Shown as connection #1 below.
I guess the upper end of the "Blue line" (vacuum hose) could connect to the "Pink" arm of the "Y". Again, not too sure.
It is entirely possible, that the "Blue" and "Green" line is a broken line. If this is the case, not too sure what would plug into the "Pink" on the "Y".
#2 "White" line (vacuum line) attaches to a switch, that I believe is associated with the tiptronic transmission. The lower end of the hose connects to the "Cross" fitting that is by the vacuum reservoir.
The "Purple" line (vacuum line) is attached to a valve that controls coolant that goes to the tiptronic.
#3 Line disappears somewhere deep into the engine somewhere.
Can anyone help?
Boxster 2003 window on passenger side will not drop to open the door with either inside or outside handle. I replaced the micro switch from the outside handle to no effect. Windows drop with unlocking top. Driver door works normally. Inside window switch works with no noises from regulator.
Hi all,I know that there has been a lot of talk regarding fitting rear speakers to a 981 Boxster . I have a 2014 GTS with sound system plus and I am very keen to add speakers behind the seats to fill in the sound. Is there a way of either enabling the fader on the PCM and then wiring the rear speakers to the amplifier under the seat ? Alternatively,connecting the rear speakers with a resistor of 16 ohms in parallel with the front speakers?
