Well I knew it would be a big job but it needs to be done. I want to replace all the coolant hoses on my 01 Boxster S Tip. You would think it would be as simple as order the hoses. When they arrive start the job. Not really. I can not get a consistent PN reference from any diagram showing the hoses. One source said just pull the hoses to get the number. Humm might be there might not. Besides I like to have everything I need before I start when at all possible. You all know its not like replacing the upper and lower on a chevy , right. But to pull all the hoses only find out, wrong part, back ordered, not available is not how I would like to stat a job. Is there a source with up to date part numbers with a corresponding up to date diagram? Just being very hopeful.
Thanks, I did not think so. It was posted somewhere. Then again it wouldn't be first time I had to say you have to be kidding me . Maybe we could come up with a modified trans cooler with some nice AN fittings to facilitate the flush. Will have to find a beat up old one and see what makes it tick.
Can you tell me what the program does that drains the converter? I did the service on both. last time removing the side cover for the differential. Not sure what I could have gotten to go down to the bottom of the diff to suck the oil out? I thought about drilling and tapping a drain plug. But since that part only comes with the trans i chickened out. Not sure what stresses it get and hoe even a small hole in the bottom might effect it.
This was at about 110K. Chevron and textron before oil change and some at radom. I also use lucas oil treatment religiously.
Thanks. I checked those for attachment. Would be nice if there was something like in the old manuals that gave you data on how to test one. But I guess if the program says its good it has to be right. With a smile on my face could you please find an easier place for an old guy to find the control module? ?
So before I start pulling things and looking for a broken or loose connector. My durametric said the calibration needed to be done. Is that a bogus bit of info? Also I looked in the front trunk inside behind the covers and did not see a control module.
I am safe there. I have had this since new. ? Maybe the body shop may have messed with something. Like i said the halogen come on when high beam activated just no raising of the reflector. But yep that would do it right.
I am needing to replace both myself. I have seen just the hydraulic unit for sale. Is that what you are referring to? Is it possible just to do those without taking the entire mount off? The triangular bracket appears to be riveted to the larger trans mounted brakes. Would love some help here.
Makes sense. Guess I was not clear on the problem. OK I will pull the unit and check for all wiring connections. I have a used unit, but sense I have no date for pin location /output I will start there.
Interesting. Well I guess since it did what the durametric told it to do i need to change out the controls module. The halogens do come on just no level change. It is under the dash correct? No programming require?
Those are the adjustments for left and right, up and down. Depending on the alignment of the try holding the assembly there are 3 studs that can be adjusted for the headlamp assembly fit properly in the fender opening. Very fiddly. I Too am having a problem with the reflector assemblies loose in the assembly. Light bounces around and noticeable at night. Mechanism does dip and cycle as it suppose to. Can not tell if it is really leveling or not and can not find a how to check even in the manual. Hope the info help a bit. Oh so the hole just lets you access the locking arm that is mounted to the picture inside the fender.
