    1998 Boxster
  1. Is the procedure to (temporarily) remove the soft top in order to install the spinlocks on a 987 something that can be done without risking disaster? (The goal is to temporarily remove/disconnect just enough of the top to get clearance to allow the spinlock bolts to be installed.)
  2. On my '98 Boxster, the door latch on the driver's side no longer operates from the outside. (Luckily, the inside latch works, so I don't have to climb over the console and under the steering wheel!) Anyway, I got the interior door panel off and managed to get my hand up inside, way up by the latch. The threaded rod that connects the exterior latch to the inboard latch mechanism had pulled loose from its mating part on the interior side. I could tell by feel that the inboard side of the mechanism has a sliding collar that can be slid back to allow the outboard threaded rod to be inserted. Then, the collar can be slid forward to lock the threaded rod into place. I put everything back together and life was good for about two weeks. Then, the threaded rod pulled out again. Seems like I need one or two fresh parts, either the threaded side or the "receptical" side (or both) to fix this permanently. Can either or both of these parts be replaced without magical tools, and if so, what are the part numbers? Or is there a simpler permanent fix? A drawing of this mechanism and associated linkages would be *really cool* !!!
