  1. I sent you the two Boxster TSBs for wheels and tires (to your Hotmail address).
  2. K 996 347 804 90 Red K 996 347 804 91 Blue I believe the "K" designates special order only
  3. Have a look at the Maintenance Checklists. Boxsters are pretty much the same.
  4. Have a look here in the DIY section. It is covered in the 3rd Radiator Install.
  5. It is actually an oil - water heat exchanger. If there is any sign of a leak I would get it corrected as soon as possible.
  6. You will need to remove the plastic belly pan as it is under this and looking towards the front of the car. Here it is on a Boxster (996 is the same location). Gas will run down your arm... :( Jeff's pic
  7. Yes, as Rob said... coupes, cabs, targas and 2WD or 4WD and 6-speed or Tip all affect the cars weight and spring rates. Give Gert your car specs and he will make sure you get the right spring set (i.e. year, model (C2, C4, etc.) body style (coupe, cab, etc.) and transmission (6-sp or Tip).
  8. The shift knob is a 5 minute job. The handbrake might take an unexperienced person 1 hour. This might be a good time to consider a short shifter -- since you have to take the center console out for the handbrake anyway. If you have a stock shifter knob it just pulls off (lift the boot and if there is no set screw then it is the standard shifter). B&M Short Shifter Install Instructions with console removal instructions. The handbrake requires removal of the console which will require a small screwdriver and a Torx T-20 and T-30 bits. The nuts that hold the handbrake on are 13 mm (as I
  9. Just to clarify... I did not say the front was not an M030 variety. I said the rear is different from any other rear spring/shock configuration.
  10. Not exactly... The US 40th anniversary car gets special springs and shocks for the rear only (spring color code grey/grey) that are different than the RoW M030. As a matter of fact the RoW version of the 40th anniversary car gets yet a different set of rear springs and shocks (spring color code green/green). I think the shocks are just a little stiffer. The spring and "official" ride heights have not yet been published in the tech manuals.
  11. I generally add half a quart at a time and then re-check. You do not want to over fill and the bars do not need to be at the top (full).
  12. Some folks say you can just push them back into place until you hear a snap. Personally, I like to push as far back as possible then use the tool to lock it in place. Then I can feel and hear it latch into place.
  13. Well, if it is not the knob itself then there is bad news. Porsche does not sell parts of the shifter mechanism (i.e. shaft and housing). Like the 6 speed housing you can only buy it as an assembly.
  14. 180 to 190 is normal. In spirited or track driving maybe up to 210 or 220. A third radiator will help some in spirited and track driving.
  15. Antonio, That is many TSBs! Do you want start with just the hardtop?
  16. Perhaps the bulb is burned out? Have you tried swapping bulbs?
  17. There is a thread on the Optima battery here. Any group 48 or 47 battery should work. Just make sure it has the connection for the vent hose (remember our batteries are inside) and the terminals are on the right side, ;)
  18. Scott, If you have not been having any electrical problems it is likely just the battery. When these "new technology" batteries go... they pretty much die all the way. That is, it is not uncommon to have a cell failure with a very low state of charge. I would get a new battery (you would need one within a year anyway) as that will likely take care of it.
