  1. The Codes would indicate P1818 Pressure regulator 2 P1823 Pressure regulator 3 which are the fuel injector pressure regulators. I don't know whether the fault is that they aren't working or that they sense an under or over pressure condition. Someone else should be able to help.
  2. This guy doesn't seem to be selling them on eBay anymore. Does anyone have his email address where I can contact him? Thanks, azzar0. azzar0: Just sent you a PM. Regards, Maurice. The guy is back on e-bay here: Mr Brink In Netherlands He now has White or Black. I just ordered a set. Later from Rockymount
  3. I'm very interested in anyone's reply to rick3000. I have looked for a description of the hack but can't find it. Tool Pants link works but the link within that message thread no longer works and therefore the instructions don't exist. If any one has a copy of the original link, it would be great if you could post it here and then RennTech can keep it safe. Thanks
  4. Try this site: http://www.proclipusa.com/deviceholders/deviceholders.aspx Use the Shopping Wizard in the upper left to look for ipod holder then select the car model / year. If you already have the holder for the ipod then the bracket for the Boxster is all you'll need. I don't use an ipod, but the bracket is great for my XM radio, connected thru the Aux port onto my CDR220. I thank you for all the help. I have done some research, and I did not find the answer to my question, (although I did find many differnt ways to hook up my Ipod) I have been looking into the ICE link. I called them 3x and have yet to talk with anybody. Other then there site, is there a safe place to buy one? I already bought the cable to hook up the Ipod to the back of the CDR220, so I think I just need to find a good car mount. Any ideas there~
  5. I’m very embarrassed; :huh: as you can tell from my first post I checked everything but the bulbs. I pulled both lights and guess what both burnt out within the same day (probably the same hour, since they must have burnt out on my way to work which takes an hour). Anyway, please forgive me. Replaced the bulbs in about 10 minutes and presto. I guess they really burn even, must be a good sign about the voltage to each bulb. Toolpants; Yes I have a double relay and that is the part I pulled. Not sure I won't pull it since DRL have little purpose on my normal commute thru the mountains and the bulbs would last longer. I did call the local dealer to see if they carried the relay and they would have to order it. At $54.00, that is one expensive relay.
  6. I have a 1999 Canadian Boxster. My front DRLs are out and I have no low beam headlights. I do have tail lights and the high beams work (in fact both bulbs on both sides come on with the high beams on). I have pulled the double relay thinking that I would just disable the DRLs and the low beam head lights would work, but this didn't work. I also checked fuses 9 and 10 on Row A and both are good. Any suggestions of what it might be?
  7. I'm also waiting. If you look at my other post - RFM from Belgium thinks that the canister is held in by rubber grommits and the single bolt on the side. But we will see - :)
  8. Thanks - I think this sounds like this could be the same for US cars. I will give it a try this weekend. Again, many thanks.
  9. It wouldn't surprise me if the US version is similar. Once the bolt that is easy to get to is removed, the canister seems to be mounted on something that is very flexible. The rubber bushing would make sense. I just don't want to force it with out knowing. On the European canister, is that a single bolt that attaches to the canister on the right side (from looking into the wheel well)?
  10. Toolpants, Thanks for the links, but in both cases it talks about getting to the latch. One even says it is easy to remove the evaporator canister (carbon canister), but neither article tells you how. I have removed the wheel and liner (that part was easy). But the canister is a mystery. There is one bolt visible, but the canister won't budge and I'm afraid to force it. Is there any shop manual available that covers this? When I do a Google search, I can find a link to a "Activated Carbon Canister" in Bentley's Service Manual for Boxsters (pg 24-5). If you own the manual can you tell me if this is the correct canister. I don't mind ordering the Service Manual, I just don't know whether the manual is talking about the fuel canister or the activated carbon filter that is sometimes used in the air intake for the cabin air.
  11. I've just done a complete search on Renntech looking for a method to fix the latch on the fuel filler door on US Boxsters (I think this is similar to other Porsche models also). I found at least 10 other posts on this subject. In all cases, the same statement appears. Remove the right front tire and wheel liner. But I have not seen anyone say how to remove the evaporator (which must be removed to get to the latch). I see that a couple of people state that the dealer fixed this for them. Did anyone see the dealer remove the evaporator? Is there a service manual I can buy that includes removing the evaporator? Do you really need to remove the entire fender to get at this? My latch actuates perfectly, it is just loose in its bracket and I need to tighten the bolt that holds it in place so the plunger comes thru the hole in the fuel door. I know this isn't necessary for the car to perform correctly, but I get bothered when I know something is off on my Porsche. :cursing: Thanks in advance.
  12. But HOW!! I'll be tracking this topic for the solution. I didn't get any takers when I asked a few weeks ago. :rolleyes:
  13. Here is a link that will give you the information you are looking for: http://www.whiteson.org/boxster/mods/links.shtml
  14. Any idea where I can find instructions. I've searched the web. I've also looked at the Boxster Technical Manual and found the only reference in Volume 5 for "Removing and Installing the Wing" which is the front passenger fender. Those instructions don't really show the canister is just states that the wheel liner and the carbon canister must be removed before the fender can be removed. I'm stuck!!!
