  1. thanks Tool Pants! "HOPFULLY" all the broken pieces are out... they have been threaded into so many tiny pieces...
  2. Hi, This is my first attempt to do a write up, hopfully this can help some people out. Here are the tools that you need: 1. hose clamp 2. spring-band clamp pliers 3. Torx socket 4. flexible head socket wrench First, you need you to remove underside panel to get to the coolant hoses. Then clamp shut coolant hoses with hose clamps. Then, undo drain plug at water guide housing and collect coolant. Next, undo pring-band clamps with pliers. From the top: the shop manual says to remove the right hand seat, which I did not do, but I think you will have more room to work around. Then, remove service cover at passenger compartment rear wall. To do this, first remove rear-wall lining, then undo 9 hexagon-head bolts (10mm) and remove cover. Those with the drive belt in-tact, need to remove the belt first, my belt was destroyed by the water pump (1st pic), so I skipped this step. After the belt is off, you can now take off the water pump using flexible wrench, socket is 10mm. There are 7 nuts in total if I remembered correctly, and the bottom 2 nuts I managed to get it off from the under side. After all the nuts are off, take the water pump off, and remove it. You can see in the pic that mine is very very broken. From here, install is just the reverse, make sure to put in the seal, otherwise it will leak. Put everything back and fill up the coolant see if it leaks ( if you have tools to pressure test it, even better!) drive around and let the bubble out, fill up, then you're done! :D B) make sure when you put the belt back, put belt in in this sequence: water pump, alternator, intermediate roller, power-steering, air-con compressor drive pulley, crankshaft, idler roller, then over the tensioning roller. Make sure you use correct socket size for your size, 2.7 uses 24mm, 2.5 uses 19mm.

  4. thanks for the info tool pants! :thumbup: I'll post the pics and notes after the job is done! thanks :renntech:
  5. Hi all, Recently the water pump gave up and caused coolant leaking, also broke the drive belt. Going to replace the water pump and belt, is there anything else I should do while I'm at it? like thermostat? is it necessary or just an option? someone mentioned to me to check the belt tensioner/idler pulleys, should I change those too? Thanks! :) :D
  6. what's our factory offset anyway??? for a 01 boxster......
  7. any input will be appreciated, really want to get this set...(if it fits that is) thanks!
  8. HI all, Recently I came across a set of rims, but really don't know if those will fit a 01 boxster? the specs are 18 x 8 1/2 et50 front and 18 x 11 et52 in the rear... I was told by some that it's not gonna fit and some say it'll fit if spacer is used... is this rim going to fit or not?? any one shine some light on it? the front will go on fine, it's the rear... or 18 x 10 et 65 I'll be fine? thanks in advance! :thumbup:
  9. thanks! I'll try this out first see if that works...
  10. Hi all, I'm new to this board, but I have to say this is one very helpful board for porsche owners!! :renntech: anyway, recently I changed the battery and radio would need the code (which I lost it) just happened to have a alpine deck around so I decided to put it in... after everything works fine... but the only thing is I get that annoying static sound coming from speakers... does any one had this problem too? is it my wiring? (has to be, right? the factory HU worked fine) my car is a 2001 base model with the amp and door speakers... any one know a solution to this? any help would be appreciated, thanks!!! :thumbup:
