  1. There is a TSB for MY97 - MY00 Boxsters that states a P1128 and P1130 codes are potentially caused by an air leak in the oil filler hose. P1128 by itself is usually a faulty oil filler cap seal. Let me know if you want a copy of the TSB.
  2. I am working with Gert to figure out the correct wiring (or pins to move). You will need a pin removal tool to do this. When we tried this last weekend the Bi-Xenons plugged in fine and the low beams lit right up... unfortunately the high beams did not come on (lights stayed on low beams) nor did the fog lights come on. You will not be able to retrofit the auto-level since you would have to run a new wiring harness and sensors to each wheel. Stay tuned I think we can make this work...
  3. Yes., but you need special tools to control the amount of pressure. If your dealer says it's leaking they should have done the pressure test. Many dealers will replace the tank for free since this is a known problem and Porsche has changed the tank 3 or 4 times. The coolant should be checked when the engine is cold and the car is level. The fluid level must lie between the "Min." and "Max."markings. Sorry, perhaps someone else can reply on this one. If the noise is actually at the front windshield then there is a TSB to replace the windshield seal. If the noise is in the dash there is a 9 page TSB that a series of fixes depending on the problem area. Do you mean front console or dash? If anything in the front center console has been changed then it is likely that something is loose. If it is the dash then TSB I mentioned above should cover it. There are a couple more TSBs that cover A pillar noises. Most of them are for creaking or cracking noises not wind noise. Have you checked the weather stripping around the window? and are you sure the window is all the way up? If not, there is a special adjustment procedure to raise the window all the way up.
  4. Carnewal.com and TireRack.com both have these street legal competition grade tires for sale. TireRack also has a few reviews. Here is a brief features description:
  5. Since these are rubber parts do not use oils -- Porsche suggests 999 917 557 00 Krytox lubricant
  6. There are a few things that can cause this. One is a carbon buildup inside the air intake butterfly - I use a bottle Chevron's Pro Guard Fuel Injector Cleaner (Techron) about every two to three months to clean that stuff out. A second possibility is dirty contacts on the throttle positioning sensor (egas). Those are the most common -- other than a loose vacuum hose ;)
  7. Yes. Your paint code is on the options sticker under the front hood and your options code sticker in the manual. Arctic Silver is either L92U or L92T (U is water based paint and T is oil based).
  8. You will need to look at the color code on the new springs. If it is the same as the old springs then you do not need any spacer change (they are the same tolerance). If they are different then you will need to measure the thickness of the spacer as you will need the other one (since there are only two sizes). The TT Service Manual has the color codes but I do not have TT Service Manual. The spacers are the same regardless of US. RoW, or even X73.
  9. Page 174 of your owners manual will show you how to remove the headlight housing using the tool supplied in your toolkit (behind the spare in the front trunk). Page 177 will show you which socket has the parking bulb. Should be about a 5 minute job. :D
  10. I doubt it - Gert sells primarily Porsche parts. You will need to email Gert for exact part numbers as I do not know the part numbers in his package. Everything in the front is the same for MY02 and MY03 unless you have the X73 package. In the rear everything is the same for MY02 and My03 (again unless you have the X73 package) -- as long as you are putting a 6 speed rear springs on a 6 speed and not a Tiptronic (or visa versa). No, they are the same part numbers. Front bump stop is 996 343 301 02 - same as US version. Rear bump stop is 996 333 105 03 - same as US version. The compensating spacers are based on the tolerance color code on your springs (this is a separate code from the version color stripes). For the RoW TT rear springs there is a 0.4 mm spacer (996 333 511 03) or 0.5 mm spacer (996 333 511 02). For the front there is a 3.0 mm spacer (996 343 525 00) or a 6.5 mm spacer (996 343 525 01). Front Springs are gold/white. Rear springs are gold/white for 6 speed and gold/red for Tiptronic. I do not have shock color codes.
  11. The OEM fill varies according to my sources. The Mobil PTX is a synthetic as is the Shell Transaxle. 000 043 204 20 Mobil (Mobilube PTX) – 20 liter container 000 043 204 19 Shell (Transaxle) – 20 liter container 999 917 546 00 Shell (Transaxle) – 1 liter container
  12. There are at least two PCM2 software updates. Have your dealer upload the latest software to your PCM2 with their PST2 tool.
  13. In a factory (or dealer) installed PSE there are two modes of operation. First in normal operation the sport sound is on (open) except between 30-45 MPH. This cutoff is based on the speedometer A signal from the instrument cluster. My understanding is that this is a requirement for some European countries the have quiet city zones (i.e. Switzerland). The second mode is the switch which allow the driver to close (or shut off) the sport sound at any time. Finally, if the electronic and vacuum equipment is not installed then the sport exhaust sound will always be on.
  14. Thanks, this looks good! A couple of questions... Do you have any photos? This is the rollbar not the rollcage right? Rollbar Rollcage
  15. Going back to stock would be the most elegant solution. You might even find someone that wants to trade for the PSE (plus cash I assume). Just make sure you get stock mufflers for an 02 or later so that your exhaust tips will line up right.
  16. Yes, your private registered address. I can not send attachments to personal (board) messages.
  17. I sent you a private email with the slider trim removal instructions.
  18. I can not say that for sure. But you need a body shop to paint them anyway so they can likely make them fit. The numbers I gave you are the individual side skirts. You will see the full listing in the instructions I sent you. No. Again, you'll see (in the instructions) that the adhesive is separate from the aerokit parts.
