    2000 Boxster S

  1. I had a 2000 Boxster S with the AVIC-N1 and was able to put the GPS antenna under the plastic piece on the dash(right in the middle, towards the windscreen, where the alarm led blinks), so it was completely hidden.
  2. I'm curious to see how this is done. Please let us know when they are posted :)
  3. Is there a work on cars day coming up soon? I would like to learn how to do an oil change on my car. Thanks :)
  4. Mine does that too . When the engine has been running, the oil level drops. However, when I start the car in the morning, the oil level is back up again. The difference in oil level is probably about 2 bars.
  5. Gee 9 revisions?! Is it really that hard to design a coolant tank?! I wouldnt mind if they put some denser material in there so it wont break. The weight difference would be negligible.
  6. hey update on my experimental fix.... it looked like it worked! The JB weld was actually able to stop the coolant leak. After i wiped off the residue and cleaned the outside of the tank. I just put globs of that stuff underneath the coolant tank. It completely stopped the leak, seems that stuff can handle temperatures up to 500 degrees :jump: BTW....i drove for a few days already with my ghetto fix, and its holding up well :drive:
  7. Thanks Tool Pants, I appreciate your offer. Perhaps we can do this during a work on cars day. In the meantime, I'll fill up the coolant again to be 100% sure its coming from an opening in the tank.
  8. I have this problem now too!... and i'm in the Bay Area! anyone want to film this procedure? As a temp fix, is it possible to use JB weld where the leak is located? It isn't forming any lakes, but my cooland level has definately dropped and I see some wet spots on the floor of the trunk. Thanks
  9. have you tried to manually unlock the fuel door lock mechanism. I believe the instructions are in the manual. Just open the passenger door and pull on a ring and the door will unlock. I know your trouble is trying to lock the fuel door, but the locking rod is probably just jammed
  10. yes I would also like to know how much that tool costs :)
  11. yeah I understand...ok but more news...i think i really found the cause now. Its the radio. with just the dash plugged in, the amp usage just pulsates, but never above 4 milli amps. The stereo, even when off, makes the amp usage over 150 milliamps. I'll just leave that fuse unplugged for now. Since i'm going to get an aftermarket stereo, I'll just live without music while driving. Thanks for all your help :cheers:
  12. ok after pulling out the fuses one by one, I narrowed it down to 2 items, each of these cause my amperage to go over 150 mA. The radio and the instrument cluster. i guess I can leave the radio off for the time being, but I dont know about the instrument cluster. should I just take it to the shop to have them figure out the rest? without any of these 2 fuses in, i'm getting a reading of 40 mA
  13. Hi Loren I've tried pulling out the bulbs and my battery is still getting drained when leaving it parked. I took a measure of the amperage and its way over 150 milli amps. Could you give me some suggestions on what I should try next? I think I'm going to start pulling out fuses one at a time and see when the amps drop, I think think there's a short somewhere Thanks
  14. Thanks Loren, I'll take the light bulb out of the front trunk. My battery just went down to 11 volts and my car isn't starting.
  15. aHhhh I just checked the charge, its 12 volts with the car off and 14 volts with the car running. So its not the alternator. I think its some drain in the car when I leave the car off. I'm going to double check tonight to make sure no lights are on
