  1. They are two different cars - I guess my question is, is that rod still adjustable on the 981? This is what it looks like on a 986:
  2. On my 1998 986, I had a mechanic adjust the travel of the brake pedal - if I recall correctly, there is a shaft that is accessible underneath the brake reservoir. I absolutely loved the change - you had to push the brake pedal very little to get pad engagement. My new to me 981 has pretty long travel with the stock pads. Is this still something that can be adjusted?
  3. The seller's mechanic stated that it was due to low voltage from the battery, but they tested the battery at the time of the inspection, and it was charging fine. I really appreciate the advice - as you say, there are plenty more out there, so I'll keep looking!
  4. Thanks for the quick reply - I'm assuming these sorts of codes are atypical?
  5. I'm looking to buy a 2014 Boxster S, and I had a shop do a full inspection. They sent me the following OBD codes - are these anything to be concerned with, or are they just hiccups (or a battery change)?
  6. Hi Steve, I hope you don't mind me sending you a message directly but sounded like that you've changed your fuel vent line (at the intake manifold as there seems to be about 3 with similar part description) and wanted to pick your brain.  The part number I need to replace is 996.110.129.06 (I've got a 2004 Boxster S Anniversary Edition).  Anyway, how difficult was it to do this yourself?  I've got minimal experience but have been able to replace my AOS and starter, is it much more difficult than that?

      I'm really sorry that I just saw this - I don't login to Renntech very often.


      I'm sure you already have your answer, but it was a finicky job - hopefully you got yours in and it fixed your issue.

  7. I'm in the process of replacing the fuel vent line from the throttle body. Just above where it connects to the line on the car, it (along with three other lines) runs through a clasp. How do I get this open? It looks like the hinge is on the right side, but I can't see how to open it. This pic is just in front of the rear driver's tire looking up.
  8. Yes, for the 996 engine. I suppose at this point it's a guessing game, and I may as well change the part and see if it helps
  9. I don't have a reader, Durametric or otherwise. Would a generic one work?
  10. I have had this issue for a couple years. The main symptom is that, after driving awhile, and especially on less than half a tank, there will be a moaning sound coming from the gas cap. If I remove the gas cap and open the fuel filler, air will rush in. The other issue I'm having is that, on cold starts, the car will kind of buck like the fuel is cutting out - it goes away after a couple minutes when the car is warm. I have already changed the valve on the gas filler neck and the valve on the charcoal canister, but neither fixed the issue. I'm now targeting the fuel vent line connected to the throttle body, but having read other posts, it seems like that one generally causes issues with fueling and with hot starts, neither of which I'm having. Ideas?
  11. I traced the lines - unless it is behind the carbon canister (I would have to take the canister off to get to it), part number 8 is not in there. Where should it be in my pics?
