  1. 99 Boxster Hi All, On my Hardtop there are foam gaskets that turned gummy over the years, and I want to replace them. They are seated under the 2 latches that turn and lock the top into place. Can't find a part # for them. They go under part# 986 563 403 02. Any info would be appreciated. Thanks V

     

  2. Hi all, Ugh....I was putting gas in my 99 boxster  from a 3 Gall can. I used a plastic turkey baster to extend the funnel I was using. Apparently the baster was not gas proof and began to break down and a piece broke and I believe fell into the tank. It was a piece of plastic the size of a pea. I assume it will dissolve and nothing will happen. The tank is half full. Any suggestions. Thanks v

  3. 99 Boxster. Well I decided to paint my Guards Red hardtop to match my Ocean Blue Boxster. Wanted to do something other than Ocean Blue. I saw some pix of some other Boxsters that had their hardtops painted with a black matte finish. Looked pretty cool....almost like the soft top was up. I can paint it flat black or ocean blue and clear it with a matte clear. Not too sure what way to go. Black Matte or matching Ocean Blue w/ matte finish. What do you all think?? V

  4. Hi All, Replaced front shocks,strut mounts,strut bearings,wheel bearings, control arms(wishbone). Now...I'm getting a creaking sound when I turn the wheel. I finished on Saturday and drove the car all weekend and just noticed it this morning.(Mon) Any thoughts? V 99 Boxster Base

  5. Got 1 side completely done. Just a few things. Torquing the rearward bolt for the control arm was guesstimated ...I couldn't get in there w/ a torque wrench even with a crows foot. Dont have that torque extension tool you attach to a wrench. I got it on real tight comparable to wheel lug tightness(calls for 118 Ft Lbs) Next is the axle bolt....340 Ft Lbs ....really? Gona stand on a breaker bar at 19 inches ( I weight 208) What say all? V

  7. Hi All, I am replacing my front bearings, tie rod ends and wishbone on my 99 Boxster. Considering that I have everything removed I decided to replace the shocks. Anything else I should consider while in there...springs/shock mounts etc..... Ok well now im seeing all dosent have to be removed(balljoints) so maybe I'll hold off on the shocks...any thoughts? Thanks v

  8. OK...I trashed both Tie rod end boot and wishbone boot as well so I'm going to just replace them. Seemed the ball joints were very easy to move around so I think they were shot anyway(someone agree with me!!!) Is it necessary to replace the hub bolt? Should I consider replacing anything else while I'm in there? Thanks V

  9. Hi All, Going to replace my front wheel bearings 99 Boxster Base. I planned on removing the wheel carrier and bringing off to a machine shop to get the old ones pressed out and new ones pressed in...only 40.00 a side. Is there a chance I will trash the balljoints during removal? Should I replace the control arms while I'm in there? Any tips or suggestions? Thanks V

  10. Hi all, 99 boxster. Removed and sent my injectors out for cleaning. Well getting them back in is a real knuckle buster. Is it safe to say by just lining the tips up and getting them in the intake and bolting the fuel rail down is sufficient? It seems they were more snug getting them out then they went in ….also goes for the rail side. Any tricks on getting the electrical  connectors back on? If after closing it all up and turning the ignition to on position and hopefully seeing no fuel leaks will this mean I'm all good to go? Don't want to worry about a leak driving a month from now. Thanks v

  11. Hi all, 99 boxster…,Does a CEL clear itself after the problem is fixed? I have means to clear it but would like to see it clear itself so I don't have to wait (for it to pop up again) or keep checking for pending faults. thanks v

  12. I did do that and all checked out.  My findings were:

    Fuel press Engine off 3.3bar

    Engine idle 3.1 bar

    FPR .51 bar at idle,....... that's why I decided to send the injectors off. On the right track?.....you think? V
