  1. There are different order numbers for a 986 depending on motorization and whether or not sport suspension, this will be the diameter of the anti roll bar. The 987 has completely different order numbers starting with 987-***-*** and also motorization, sport and/or active suspension. I don't know if this is interchangeable.
  2. Possible, a lot depends on the used charger type, there are chargers that only charge and others that first partially discharge the battery and only than start the charging cyclus. What you can do is start by closing the car with the remote and depending on whether it is a daily driver or not, use the car every two or three days. You will than notice that the battery has enough power or not, i think you are needlessly concerned.
  3. Do you lock the car with the remote ? This is necessary to get the systems into sleep mode after some time, for minimum power consumption.
  4. Just start cleaning the throttle body and air mass meter, CRC sells a special aerosol product for this purpose, available from board sponsor Sunset. The throttle body can be done with brake cleaner.
  5. 2005 Boxster should have a ZF Tiptronic transmission or a manual gearbox, are you sure about the build date?
  6. Auto's en lichte commerciële voertuigen AFTERMARKET.ZF.COM Personenauto's This is the catalog of the transmission manufacturer, country and language can be changed if necessary.
  7. Some people place all kinds of rubber parts under the air filter box as an anti rattle solution, instead of the original rubber sleeve between the bottom of the box and the rear cross member. You can always check this.
  8. Check an d open the connector between the A pillar and the door for poor contacts, breaks and corrosion, including the relevant wiring in question up to the motor/control box.
  9. K44 - Geschwindigkeitsregelanlage = cruise control system. There will undoubtedly be several items that are directly/indirectly related to cruise control, such as speed signal, brake signal, etc.
  10. This is the oil by-pass valve and should be on the bottom of the canister, since you quote that a breakage has occurred, the entire unit must be replaced.
  11. Is the gray soft plastic flap which is attached on the wiper motor/mechanism cover, and protect the filter/air intake for water infiltration still present?
  12. In my opinion it has something to do with the thrust bearing, have this checked by a mechanic to be sure.
  13. Electronics have nothing to do with higher crank speed, only a compression problem or the use of a starting aid powered with higher than the usual 12/14 volt can cause this phenomenon IMO. In that case you have a serious problem with the electronic components, at least i hope not.
