  1. Thanks. Halogen. So the entire housing would have to be replaced I take it. What is the proper terminology for the bumper lip so that I can search online? This is the actual vehicle/style...
  2. 2012 Cayman R I am working on closing a deal on this vehicle and I need to estimate costs for specific items... All of my searches are falling short.... 1. The top most edge of one headlight is scratched directly over the black border (for lack of a better term) - it looks like someone was buffing the hood or something along those lines. From what I could tell on inspection, the outermost housing of the headlight is plastic. Would the entire housing have to be replaced or can it be separated and just that topmost part replaced.....it is hard to tell if it is one piece or layered somehow? 2. At the bottom of the front bumper there are two lips/spoilers (one on each side) that can be removed via clips. One is damaged due to a bottom-out. What is the part number and/or cost to replace? Thanks!
  3. A bit confused... I have found a local deal and this one has A/C. Is the deletion standard but A/C optional? I figured it simply wasn't an option on the Cayman R.
  4. Thanks. The window seems to operate throughout the day, and then I get to my home.in the evening. I roll it down to enter the gate code, roll it up and park - The window seems to drop/raise when I open the door to get out, otherwise the door wouldn't close properly. When I turn the car off, in the morning it is blown because I notice the door not opening - window not dropping. I have heard a noise in the door when the drivers side window is operated so maybe that is the wiring getting caught on something - will take a look. Until I track it down, I have been placing a fuse in, putting the top up or down (or using the windows), and then puling the fuse. Lather, Rinse, Repeat. :-\
  5. Hi, 2001 S 71K miles I noticed that my windows stopped working and because it happend to both windows simultaneously, I figured it was the fuse - In looking, sure enough I found the primary fuse had blown. I replaced it, it worked for a day, and then blew again. Because I used the spare in the fuse box, I figured that with 10+ years on the clock that maybe I should use new ones. So I purchased new fuses, replaced it, and over a day it blew again. When I replace the fuse, everything seems to be working fine. Never had luck with working on elecrical systems, so I need some detailed advice on where to begin my troubleshooting. Where should I start, what should I measure, etc.? Any help is much appreciated. Thank you in advance.
  6. 2001 Boxster S Time for a replacement or repair as the plastic has cracked. I am not sure I want to do the work myself so.... 1. Does anyone know of a reputable shop near San Antonio, TX. 2. What is the current consensus on which is the best glass window top? Reading threads here and elsewhere, it seems to me that GAHH would be it, but I haven't seen too much recent discussion on it. Thanks!
  7. Sorry, but am I missing something? The url is a family album ;) Sorry, if I am being dense.
  8. Going on 5 days and about 400 miles now with no CEL and it is running great! I think that was the culprit, but time will tell.
  9. You will have to remove the tank to repair it, and there will be no guarantee that using an epoxy weld or similar will hold up for any duration. With the time you will invest to "hopefully" seal it, you might get a leak very soon after it is pressurized. Since you can get a tank for under $300, I would just replace it with new. Before I replaced mine, I was thinking of trying to repair mine as well. Every shop I talked with essentially talked me out of it.
  10. Mine was almost in the center bottom - it will vary. I found a picture online that appeared to have a leak near the same area as mine. I have circled it. I had a hard time finding the leak also and it only did on heavy pressure. If you can feel around, you should eventually find residue solidified around the area. I never pinpointed it until it was removed. PITA to replace, but in my opinion, worth a DIY :-\
  11. Interesting, I have never seen the two related in researching. I recently commented on the following thread, so you have me intrigued. Are these related?
  12. New MAF is installed. First thing I noticed right off is that on a cold start, I don't have the hesitation I have noticed as of late. - So that seems good so far. I will keep you posted as I get more miles on it.
  13. With the exception of my RMS leaking (noticeably) after fixing the AOS, my situation is the same. I am still getting the same codes as you, and I am replacing the MAF with the newer one. It should be here tomorrow, so we will see if that rids it.
  14. I have the same noise but only when it is cold out. Looking on 986faq, it states the following. Is it inaccurate? --------------------------- Diagnostic: Whine comes from the engine compartment for 30 seconds after starting the car when cold outside. Cause: This is an air pump that helps the emission control system reduce the pollutants released into the atmosphere. Details: This is normal, and no correction is necessary. Time in Shop: None. Repair Instructions: None. Notes: None.
