  1. Hey Loren, no it didn't. However in my panic what i should have done was keep reading the service manual section. I found the high amp fuse part and didn't keep reading as there are also 2 more fuses in the regular box. I got a bit thrown by the fact i was able to move the windows up but not down - good ol' Porsche for giving you a way to secure your car! Lesson learned- RTFM - completely! Thank you
  2. Hey All, Hoping someone can help me. I just completed what i hoped was the simple job of replacing the passenger side vanity mirror - and it was thanks to the instructions that Loren provided. However I now have electronic demons. The lights in both vanity mirrors don't work, not that big a deal - however neither do my windows roll up and down. As they were down at the time i did managed to get them to close using the key in the door but the switches themselves don't work at all. I am also unable to lower them again (but at least the car is secure now). Additional things now not working are the door lock button on the dash, which i never use but hopefully will provide a clue. All other stuff appears to be working. I can't be the window fuse as they wouldn't have closed with the key (?). The dealership said that when i may need to have everything "reprogrammed/reset" which sounds $$$. Any ideas?? Any help most appreciated. Martin
  3. Thanks very much Loren, most appreciated!
  4. Hello all, driving the other day with the long haired general in the car and she managed to break the cover piece off the vanity mirror on the passenger side. I ordered and received the replacement but i have no idea how to fit it! Is it glued in? Has anyone got any tips/links on how to replace it?? Any help would be much appreciated! Martin
  5. Hey all, Went and picked it up. The dealer found nothing wrong and was unable to replicate the issue.... Doesn't make me feel warm and fuzzy but we shall see. Thanks for all the advice! Martin
  6. Correct, except no rough patch is needed! Worse part is i have tried to get it to do it again for the service people and it won't. What concerns me was that it was LOUD, then it just stopped.....
  7. Thanks guys, i have taken it into the Garage cos i was worried i might be doing damage. Pretty sure they will say that they didn't find anything - always seems to be the case!! Will keep you posted if they do find anything.
  8. Thanks RFM. Why would it only be intermittent though??? Its not doing it all the time, just started this morning. I was just about to take it to the garage and it wasn't doing it.
  9. Hey All, I am hoping someone has an answer for this or that the fix isn't mortgage worthy! I started driving to work today, lovely weather so i had the top down. I noticed a really loud rattle from the rear underside of the car. My first thought was that it was probably the head guard for the exhaust and that i would take a look later. As i slowed down it got really bad and then i noticed that my ABS light and my battery light were flashing like crazy. The weird thing was that the disco lights on my dash seemed to be tied to the rattle??? Slowing down and braking, lots of rattle and lights, accelarating - slight rattle and not so many lights. Does anyone know what this could be? Really appreciate anyones help. Martin
  10. Did you have to cut the 987 sill's down or did you just leave the gap? Where did you get the Gauge Rings from, Suncoast is out of stock till March.... They look great by the way!
  11. Thanks Greg, I found the TSB so i should be good to go. Thanks for the heads up! Martin
  12. Hey all, I have just installed a new rear center console, which i am very :D with! However i can't work out how to get the lid off the lockable oddments box right at the back. The instructions say something about a hinge replacement kit for '99 and '00 models (mine is a MY00), which is all well and good but that doesn't have anything to do with the lid, does it??? Any help would be most appreciated! Thanks Martin
  13. Hi Blackcat, I was checking out this site http://www.bombaydigital.com/boxster/proje...es/change_pads/ and he mentions dampers on the backs of the pads to reduce the squeal. Not sure if that helps any. Good luck and let me know how you get on Martin
  14. Depending on where you are located, not sure about junkyard but you can get refurbed engines from Sunset Porsche. I was trying to talk myself into an engine swap and he quoted me less than your longblock quote for a 3.4! I would use it as an excuse to unleash hell!
  15. Not sure if you have them up that way but Currys Auto charged me about $120ish for fitment.
  16. Thanks for the help Loren (and the patience!). I contacted my dealer today and the code on mine ended up being only one digit out instead of the 2 per the FAQ, not sure if this info is of use to anyone else. Regards Martin
  17. Glad to hear you got it installed. Mine loosened up with time but when i first put it in, yes! Now i love the B&M, it improves the feel considerably. You have done more mods than i have, looks like ill need to get cracking! :D All the best Gristy
  18. Mine were on there kinda tough too. I think i ended up getting a small screwdriver between the "casing" and the switch and levering it gently off. I also had a ton of trouble getting my gear knob off. Finally did it by putting it into reverse, bracing against the passenger footwell and pulling, hard!
  19. Hey Loren, my serial number is X5033375 I tried 6766 as you suggested along with 6762, 6764, 6768 but no joy. What others do you think i should try?
  20. LOL, took me me just over 2 hours!! I agree with Michael, it was a lot easier than i thought. p.s hey Michael, would you PM me with where you had the 3.4 done?
  21. Hi Gus, I don't have any maintenance/handyman skills either but giving it a go myself. I bought the 9x6 Werks DVD's, well worth it as they run you through the whole thing (along with some other common mods) and its a bit easier to see where you might have problems as its video and not the B&M instructions. I doubled the time that B&M said it would take doubling back and forth from my laptop and the instructions - I was extra careful!! Anyway i did it and since then have attacked a couple more projects (OBC hack was fun!). Take your time and you should be ok. Gristy
  22. Not sure if anyone is interested in a update on this but humor me...... Well its still ongoing, paypal finally said today that i had to file with the local law enforcement and fax it over to them. As much as i want to its really not worth the hassle for the bit of the order thats missing. The way gas prices are it would probably cost me more to drive there and file that to let this guy get away with it. Don't buy from this guy - its more hassle than its worth. :soapbox: Thanks Martin :renntech:
  23. Hey Loren, hope you can help me out with the radio unlock code. Serial number is X5033375 Thanks Martin
  24. Hey All, Was looking at getting some white dials for my MY00 Boxster but i love the idea of getting the Carrera cluster installed. From reading the other posts would a standard 2000/2001 C2 cluster do the job? If so would the C2S have the white gauges and be compatible with my vehicle? Again, from what i have read in this post as long as its C2 of the "old" type i should be ok. Would anyone have the part number i would need? Thanks for all the help, great post. Martin
