  1. Good info, Joe. What exactly was wrong with the unit? I know what you mean about the bushing...scraped knuckles...ouch.
  2. Going through the same thing. The charging voltage is supposed to be in the range of 13-14.5V. So, if you've tested across the battery terminals with the engine running, I think it's safe to say the alternator is not charging. Question, of course, is "why"? I'm going to have a look at the alternator connections as I was doing a search and one member had a loose ground clonnection. I'm hoping it's something simple as I have other issues to contend with. Hope this helps a bit...
  3. What do they do and does it cost that much less than a new or rebuilt unit?
  4. I hope you, oh great hunter, have a memory like your prey and indeed do not forget to post your progress! Where did you buy your starter? Not a bad price.
  5. Does anybody have any experience of this installation on an S? There's already a difference in feel between the 5 and 6 speeds. I'm wondering perhaps if the biggest difference in feel would be in the base Boxster tranny?
  6. So, is this the sign of a blown head gasket? It could pertain to another vehicle I have...
  7. Any other purpose? I've got a 986 and oddly enough, I was going to post to ask why, when the clutch is depressed, the rpms go up about 50 rpm and when released, rpms go down. So, I think it serves a purpose, but why is this necessary? I can use a zip tie on mine?
  8. i'm going to estimate that it's 10" wide and 4" high (the speaker). it fits in the section under the rollbar (where the storage shelf is) and it doesn't take up the whole length of the rear shelf, just the middle part. i don't know how deep it is... but i hope Thomas will post back to tell us how it sounds. FYI.. There are two 5.25" subs (more like mid bass drivers then woofers) along with two 1" tweeters. Spend the money on something else. I loaded the factory bose box with 5.25" FOCAL components. Is like night and day. Joe How much did the Focals cost?
  9. I'm new, so I haven't seen the extent of the board quite yet, but yes, just helpful sorts with no attitude. Refreshing!
  10. Probably the best advise. Many many thanks guys, you've been really helpful, i'll get the battery checked tomorrow and if not start removing fuses. ill be sure to let everyone know what the result is as it may help someone out in the future :clapping: :clapping: Yes, please do keep us posted. Nothing worse than being left hanging By a thread) :jump:;) !
  11. Believe it or not, owing to the fact that I couldn't contort myself to get a visual in a cluttered garage, I blindly sprayed some WD 40 in the general vicinity of the pivot- voila`, noise gone- good as old. Go ahead, close your eyes and take a shot! Good luck. Hey I'm all about the blind squirrel finding a nut from time to time! Will give it shot. If i could fit under there to do the ignition switch I'm sure I can find the pivot point! Any the noise has been gone for how long? The noise has been gone for a week. Oddly enough, our cars have about the same mileage, so I suspec
  12. just because his 'installer' doesn't know how to install speakers doesn't mean that Bose is better! ;) seriously, if he skipped the trip to the installer and just plugged it into the radio, none of this would have happened. i have a friend that works at Bose and even *he* thinks that they have a 'good' product and an EXCELLENT marketing department! :notworthy: i have heard that the Bose system is really expensive. did you pick yours up after you bought the car (i.e. not delivered installed from the factory?) what did it cost (if you don't mind?) i put together a pretty decent system:
  13. I know it doesn't add anything to the discussion, but this topic makes me glad I held out for the Bose system. Enter all negative Bose comments here:

  15. New to forums. Good to be here. Any update on this? Unless it was an eleephant, of course. :-)
