  1. Fixed ....Window stop bumper was in the lower (incorrect) notch on the rail.
  2. Hi All, 99 Boxster Base. My R window makes a knocking sound when its down and happens when closing the door. Upon inspection the front part of the window is hitting the front top "cable wheel" of the regulator. Is there a piece of foam or rubber missing from the top of the regulator. I can probably cure it by cementing a small piece of rubber to the top mount to avoid glass to metal contact. Thanks V
  3. 99 Boxster Base So after much work and money. New Batt, AOS,MAF,Plugs,Fuel Filter,Air Filter,Gas Cap,Oil Cap o-ring,Cleaned TB, Timing,New VarioCam Solenoid, Repaired DME, I'm getting a CEL with P1123 P1125 codes every 600 miles or so for rich fuel on both banks. Checked as best I could for vacuum leaks, Fuel regulator I think is within spec for vacuum Maybe on the low side. Any thought as to what I do next. Car is running good says I'm getting 26 MPG on the H'way which is hard to believe. Out of ideas!!! V
  4. Well there was some improvement ....all the drop links were shot. I mean some said they had remarkable improvement but I'm not feeling it. At some point everything will probably get changed out. V
  5. Hi All, 99 Boxster Base.I replaced my rear Track Arms today (thats what the dealership said was the source of my clunking noise along with drop links) I was surprised when I noticed the new TRW booted joint on the arm was easily moved around with my fingers, I thought it would be much more tighter than the old. The old joint was just a little easier to move around. Just wondering maybe I didn't need to do it. Any thoughts?? Thanks Vince
  6. Hi All,99 Boxster Base. Need to replace my trailing arms (rear) and all drop links. EPS or TRW thats the question. Any preference? V
  7. Hi, No way this 996 cover is going on my Boxster top unless Im doing something wrong. The 2 holes are for the spikes I assume, they are way wider than the cover. Any thoughts Thanks V
  8. OK....how do I insure I dont get air in it when doing the bleed? Thanks V
  9. Hi All, Just confirming that I CAN replace my brake fluid by using the Motive Pressure Bleeder on my 99 Boxster Base WITH TC (Traction Control), I've heard conflicting info regarding having to open valves in control unit w PTS2 and then some saying if you're bleeding after the control unit its fine. Thanks V
  10. OK ....well here's an update. Upon closer investigation I didn't over torque the lug....I believe it was previously weakened and damaged already. The previous owner had 7mm spacers on the rear wheels and didn't upgrade to extended lug studs so the existing stock stocks were 7mm too short and just about catching the bore in the hubs. I did manage to clean the one bore out with a tap. I then removed the spacers and got good torque at 96 Ft Lbs on all lugs. Did auto cross last week without knowing this info .....ouch!! V
  11. Okay..... I dodged the 1st bullet and didn't have to drill. I removed all the lugs with the exception of the one that was spinning and wedged a small pry bar between the spacer and drum pressed down on the bottom of the wheel with my feet and got my impact on it and zipped it out .....5 minutes. BUT....the 1st 3 treads on the bore are stripped I can't get the bolt started. The remaining 80% or more of the bore is good. Would running a chase through the bore be okay.....dont really want to replace the hub at this point. As long as I can torque it down to spec I imagine I'm good.....V
  12. Its loose already....spinning in the wheel.
  13. Well.... I painted some lugs and when replacing one my awful torque wrench from Harbor Freight didn't click(not the 1st time)....first off Im returning 2 of them on Monday. The lug/stud is just spinning and I can't back it out. Any tips as to how to get it out? Thanks V
  14. OK ...When I say twisted I mean it looks torqued to one side at the end closet to the front I guess where its attached to the frame.....I'll look at the other side see what it looks like. Would that cause a clunk sound?? V
