  1. David, Many thanks for the advice. I will try to carefully pry off the A/C and/or the cupholder console panels, after building up some courage. I am very wary of breaking any of that cheap plastic on the dash. I couldn't live with that. So easy does it, I guess. The various after-market cup holders are very intriguing, but the good ones are pretty expensive. Thanks again. Mike
  2. I tried a word search for this issue but found nothing directly applicable. So I apologize if I have missed a prior post for this issue. The last time I pushed the dual-slot, single arm cup holder back into the dashboard in my 2003 Boxster, it gave me a moderate level of resistance. Never happened before and I should have heeded this warning, but I continued to push it all the way back in. Now it is stuck. I tried removing the radio to gain access to it (super easy with those two removal clip tools--sweet!), but obviously the A/C display unit is between the radio hole and the cup holder slo
  3. Roger, Many thanks for the DIY to gain access to the engine bay. I know its a simple thing for you veteran Boxster owners, but this kind of basic assistance gives a newbie owner like me the confidence to become more involved with maintenance and repair of my car. The hard work of people like you who post very comprehensive DIYs (with terrific pics, by the way!) really help folks like me to get a more complete level of enjoyment of Boxster ownership. Thanks to you I changed my air filter without a hitch and saved a bundle of money. Now I am ready to learn how to take on more significant maint
  4. Thanks for your reply, Fray. Yes, I meant Mass Air Flow (MAF) sensor. I typed up that note near midnight last night, sorry. I really didn't think that much soot is a normal case of an aging engine, but I have no prior experience or knowledge of Porsche engine technology and characteristics. I am planning to return it to the dealership. However, finding people willing to ferry me back and forth for a four hour round trip each time is getting to be a little difficult! ************************** Any additional advice would be appreciated, such as what specifically to tell the techs to
  5. I recently purchased a used 2003 Boxster with 40K miles back in February, 2007. I have had it for a four months with no real issues, though I only get to put a few hundred miles per month on the odometer. I recently took it to the dealer for some last minute warranty work (warranty expires in July). Issues included a slightly leaking Main Seal (they replaced it) and my complaint about a fine, gritty black soot deposit that accumulates on the rear of the car. I told them I had already replaced the stock air filter (it didn't look too bad) but I still suspected too rich of a fuel mixture. The
