  3. Hi All, OP here. To recap, having originally thought the leak was from the axle seal, I had this replaced. It then continued to leak from a nearby area, which turned out to be the gear selector seal, which it would appear was due to the 'box being overfilled. However, I now have another leak from the same area! I've been under the car today and it's either the axle seal (again), or the clutch slave. I'm thinking clutch slave as there seemed to be a little fluid above the axle seal towards the top of the gearbox - hard to be sure as the fluid had mixed with some dust (I'm in Dubai..). Moreover, the reservoir in the frunk (green lid) is low. So, now I'm thinking I need a new slave cylinder!?
  4. ūüėÄhi my spoiler keeps going up and down at slow speeds and Evan if stoped can or does any body else have this problem and is it fixable please regards Peter farthing

    I am looking for 996 LED headlights. Anyone have any for sale?


    Lake Placid, Florida - US

  6. My first post on this site. I have been searching on several forums trying to find the location and access for the relays. I've been able to find the location and am just starting to dig into how to access them. To find out which relay panel I really need to get at I'd like to know which relays are in the panels. Found one panel up under the dash (drivers side) which looks like it will be the most difficult to get at (maybe need to remove the lower dash panel to access that one). The other appears to be in the rear behind the carpet on right side of trunk. Any help here would be appreciated. Thanks,

  8. So glad I found this thread! 2002 Boxster 986. CDR220 Model BE6625 S/N: 15007912 Thanks so much!
  9. Couple of points: How in the Hell was the previous owner changing or adding oil? As you found out, the normal method does not work, so exactly how OLD was the oil in the engine? Yikes! I would not be surprised to find out the AOS is probably also dead, as most DIYer's never know that until they can't get the oil fill cap off due to high case vacuum levels, which is impossible with the fill tube cut and plugged.
  10. This is not your exact model, but gives you an idea of what the hose (red-dashes) looked like before:
  11. My guess is that the previous owner cut out the flexible section of the tube and then capped it off. It was probably torn/leaking in that section and that was his "solution". There are probably some MacGyver solutions to rejoin the tube sections, but I wouldn't personally mess with it. I'd just put the right part in there this time around. I replaced this part on mine many years ago after I damaged it during some transmission work. I don't remember all the details, but I also don't remember it being particularly difficult. You can use screw-type hose clamps instead of the oem ones which require the hose clamp pliers ($30 on amazon for a nice one if you prefer to go that route).
  12. Doing the 80K mile service and have run into a problem. The oil is changed, all filters refreshed, motor mounts replaced, brake fluid flushed, but plugs need to be replaced. Never pulled mufflers with PSE, and am at a loss on how to remove the stainless braided vacuum hoses that are crimped onto the valves. The heat shield (driver's side) is off, but without removing the muffler can only get to two of the three plugs. Hoping for help and thanks in advance. FWIW ... 2012 GTS. The subject of another post on center locks.
  13. I can't remember where I bought my workshop manual, but you can still get it for a small fortune here: ūüė≤ NLA Limited : Owners Manuals BIT.LY
  14. I love mine also. Not very many of them do this but if mine does I'll just have Flat 6 Innovations rebuild the motor and keep going. I think if you own cars like these and use them as your daily driver it helps if you have two of them so when one is down you have the other to drive:)
  15. I was thinking that might be the part that is missing, but I'm not seeing how such a long pipe would fit into such a short gap. I looked at the diagrams online and something isn't adding up when comparing it to what I'm seeing in my Boxter. Do you happen to have any pictures of what it's supposed to look like?
  16. Is it still possible to get the workshop manual? Thanks.
  17. Just recently bought a 2013 Panamera 4. The car is fantastic, drives beautifully and looks really good. Now try and put a phone somewhere in the cockpit and good luck to you! There really aren't many options here to get the job done well. So here is a cheap but elegant holder. It attaches to the vent louvres in two spots making it very stable. My previous attempt had a single attachment point and you can guess how that went! This one rotates enabling it to be mounted vertically. Perfect. Here is the link: https://www.amazon.com/Phone-Mount-Lamicall-Vent-Holder/dp/B07GQMM65Q And a pic: Sent from my SM-G950U1 using Tapatalk
  18. I just did the valve cover gasket job on my 2006 Cayenne Turbo S. The information I found online were invaluable along with this one. It was a real big job and having the proper tools as everyone stated is essential. Be patient and it can be done. I spent 5 hours on the driver's side and about 3-4 hours on the passenger side. So far so good but I haven't put much miles on yet. Keeping my fingers crossed. As someone stated on another forum, this tools was invaluable for removing the back bolts on either side. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B003TSMQWU/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o03_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
  19. Or in the passenger’s lap? Thanks. I’m in the market and the spare tire issue has bagged at me a bit.
  20. 996 107 254 03 -- US MRSP (at your Porsche dealer) $71.49 Expect Sunset to be well below that.
  21. Looks like you probably need a new oil hose 99610725403. Porsche part is $64 on rmeuropean. Other decent sources are PelicanParts or Sunset Porsche Parts. If you haven’t yet, search the web for the boxster catalog of parts. Should be named KAT520_USA_986_04_KATALOG. It will have the diagrams you need to identify which parts you need, along with part numbers. You might need a couple more things to solve your issue.
