  1. Thanks, Loren Do you happen to know if there are instructions on how to locate the regulator. I assume I have to remove the door trim, correct? Thanks, Gus
  2. Hi guys...Is there a DIY for this fix? I haven't worked on my car in a while, but I guess it is time to resume :-) All the best Gus
  3. Hi guys... Going for the second cleaning, but the link to the Tutorial (first post) no longer seems to work. Has the DIY been moved? I saw one for the 996, but it is a bit different. All the best, Gus
  4. Hi Topless, I don't seem to be able to find the Raybestos ST-43 for the front. My car is a 2.7l 2001 Boxster. Are you running the OEM brakes in the front? Do you have an S? All the best Gus
  5. Hi Loren, Not sure I understand you. Perhaps I was not clear on my question...Two of the nuts that hold the wheels to the spacer seem to be striped, cross-threaded. They turn, turn but will not come out and I need to remove them badly. I was wondering whether you or any of the other guys following the topic have an idea of how to get those suckers out........ Thank you, Gus
  6. Hi Loren, I had a major problem today. Went to put my winter wheels and noticed that the shop that balanced my wheels cross-treaded 2 of the nuts on my rear spacer. I can't get them out. Tried to tighten, un-tighten, wiggle, etc... Would your method work for me? Any other suggestions? Please help. I attached a pic of the spacer.
  7. It is possible that I did. This car is my track car / Sunday driver, and so it sits a lot. I almost always fill it full when I get gas, but once or twice recently I only put in 5 - 8 gallons because I was concerned about having the gas sit in the car for a couple of weeks. When I did a partial fill, I found that the "miles to go" would not calibrate correctly, and so I went back to filling the tank full. I can't remember if this current problem occured immediately after the partial fills. Mike I seem to be experience the same problem... And I also let the car run low in fuel and did not refill it all the way.... Any updates on this? Thanks, Gus
  8. Selling my Boxster - Look for it in the Classifieds section

  9. Thank you Loren... Unplugged the MAF and drove to work (under 4000rpm) this morning without a problem. Just got a UPS notification that the new MAF arrived. Any tips on installing it? The plug on the back on the MAF only goes in in one direction also, right? Should I put the part in the intake first and then plug the connector in the back or the order doesn't matter? I am overthinking this, but I am s*** scared of spoiling another part :-) BTW AutohausAZ has the best price around for the part that goes in my car 125 01 Thanks again. All the best, Gus
  10. I can leave the MAF in place and just unplug the connector, right? Thanks, Gus
  11. Hi Loren, I drove with the MAF on. I have not tried driving without it. Should I remove the MAF and drive without it or can I drive with the MAF on despite the sputtering? I will get the part tomorrow and will install tomorrow night, but for now I have no other way to get to work :-( It is around 30 miles man...of bad traffic.
  12. The MAF can not be installed backwards on a stock intake. Guys thank you very much... The car still feels very bad. I drove it to work today and it totally sucks. It feels like it is misfiring, sputtering. Like a choked motorcycle or something. So I guess re-learning is out of the picture. I might have burned the thing from overspraying or not waiting for it to dry long enough, etc... I ordered another MAF, which wont get here until tomorrow. This is my daily driver. What can happen if I drive the car like this until tomorrow? All the best, Gus
  13. Hi Loren, I disconnected the battery and only plugged it back once the MAF was back in, but it feels very bad... How do I ensure the MAF is not burned? Thanks, Gus
  14. Hi guys, I just cleaned the MAF with the appropriate cleaner. I put it back on and the car is now sputtering and idling totally erratic...I test drove it and it almost stalled. WHAT HAVE I DONE? Can I have assembled it in the wrong position? Do you guys have a picture? Is it even possible to assemble it in any other way?? Please help. It is my daily driver. All the best Gus
  15. Thank you so much, guys! I found the part number in the PET diagram posted by geoff... You guys are the best. FYI the parts I was looking for were: 996 505 525 00 01C 996 505 526 00 01C All the best, Gus
  16. Hi guys, Great to chat with you again. It has been a very, very busy year....My first born just turned a year! Well....to the point: the plastic underneath my Boxster is deteriorating a bit and I might need a bunch of the undercarriage plastic parts. In addition to that, this weekend I went to get a code read at Pepboys in Parsipanny, NJ and the f*** guy who drove the car to the service area, accidentally drove over a lift arm and broke the plastic part that is attached underneath the front bumper :censored::soapbox: Where do I get a complete diagram of the parts? I tried the link above and it didn't work. Thank you so much. All the best, Gus
  17. The instructions are great as always, thanks Loren... The only problem I have is to keep those pink thinks in place so that I can screw everything back. They move out as I push the panel back in place. Can I glue them? Best, Gus
  18. Ok...Looks like the switch is the problem then...Performed your test and the light comes right back on. Thanks, Gus
  19. Thanks, Loren... My problem seems to be the same as in post 8 (which I quoted). BTW I did change the bulbs and nothing...still have the problem Best, Gus
  20. Anyone, please... The problem is getting worse. Should I buy new fuses and take it from there? Or is it unlikely that the fuses are the problem here? If so..where do I get fuses and what are the specs of the headlight ones? All the best, Gus
  21. Having EXACTLY same problem.... Have you found a solution? I though it was a problem with my HID kit and I removed it. Now what happens is the headlights (with Silver Star bulbs) sometimes take a while to turn on. Anyone with the same issue, please contribute. Is this a fuse issue? Has the KIT damaged the electric system? Best, Gus
  22. B) I will give you $1,500...Now. Firm offer! Get the car already, come on! About your situation getting substantially better right after the MBA - not really sure about that one...Might take a few years. Plus, with a used Boxster you might learn how to drive/nurture a P-Car, so that when you do actually have a much better situation you can get into a new one confidently. FYI...I finished my MBA a few years ago and decided to keep my 01 986. It just made sense for me from a cost-benefit perspective - the car is fun to drive, insurance is cheap and the car is paid for. However, if you simply want cheap transportation, sell the Boxster and buy a used Camry/Accord. Just my 2 cents. Gus
  23. Man I got the best one 9EGG11 Best, Gus
