    2002 Boxster S Tiptronic
  1. I wish I had useful feedback, but alas, I don't. It's been a while since I worked on this issue. I loaned my car to a friend of a friend for a track day last summer. Last time I saw it............... =(
  2. Well I guess I can only feel so dumb if there have been 37 views and no-one knows what it is...anyone?
  3. I've recently purchased this 2002 Boxster S and have been going thru it trying to tidy up all of the various loose ends left for me by the previous owner. All my google-imaging has left me empty handed on what little gadget is under this black tape. I KNOW I'm getting a vacuum leak from it...... Thanks All!
  4. I have a CDR-220 Becker 1 Type 4462 Serial #X5031826 There's a code hand-written in my manual, but it's wrong! Thanks, JMcJ
  5. Any ideas of how to check the wiring and tensioner? I'm not opposed to having the dealership scan my car, but I'd like to perform as many diagnostic and repair tasks as I can. Thanks, JMcJ
  6. According to the image above the tensioner is only triggered in a frontal crash WITH the airbags. This should open up the % of 'good' used tensioners on the market
  7. Thanks Loren! Do you know what the resistance across the two pins on the seat belt tensioner is supposed to be? I measured the original one to be about 0.1 ohm. I didn't bother taking a reading on the new one, although I can take things back apart and check. I've read about the pyrotechnics in the tensioner, and since the car was in an accident (without blowing airbags) I thought I'd just go ahead and replace the unit. Unfortunately I'd suspect that nearly all Boxsters being parted out today have been in accidents, and in nearly 100% of accidents there is a driver......making
  8. I recently purchased a 2002 Boxster S tiptronic with 96k on the clock. The car is 'Salvage' from a previous accident - the damage is fairly cosmetic and has not been repaired yet. The air bag light is on. Scanning it with AutoEnginuity with the Porsche specific software yields "0016 Seat Belt Tensioner, Driver". I've searched for diagnostics on the seat belt tensioners without success, so I purchased a used unit of the same part number (561102901) off eBay. I installed the new unit, cleared all trouble codes with AutoEnginuity, saw the Airbag light toggle off......and then back on
