mmoeller replied to natzee's topic in DIY Articles - Boxster (986) - Common Fixes and RepairsI'm sorry, I don't recall enough to be able to answer your question. My guess is that the screws should be loosened to increase the distance required for electical contact, but I could be remembering this all wrong. If anything, my horn is a little too hard to activate now. BTW I took the Boxster over a deer this evening and it had to be flat-bedded away.
mmoeller replied to natzee's topic in DIY Articles - Boxster (986) - Common Fixes and RepairsExcellent solution. Worked great first try. I wasn't familiar with Torx, but purchased a nicely sized 9 pc. set from Grizzly Industrial using Amazon ($13.15 including shipping). I disconnected the negative terminal of the battery, but left the airbag connected. I unscrewed the plate to more easily apply silicone to both sides of the bushings. I stuffed a rag under the inner lip of the plate to keep it away from the contacts while the silicone set. And yes, I found my radio code. No more honking at school buses slowing for railroad tracks... Thanks for all the help, Matthew
