  1. I have an auto-dimming mirror I want to swap out with the existing mirror (on my '03 S). I plan on tapping power for the mirror from the dome light. But I need to know how to get the existing mirror off. Of course, the Porsche mirror mounting tab won't work with the mirror I'm planning on replacing it with so I'll have (unfortunately) 2 tabs on the windshield when I'm done. As an aside, why couldn't Porsche have seen fit to have an auto-dimming mirror in the first place? Even the cheapest of Kia's have them!
  2. I had the same kind of whine on my '03 S 6-spd with 26k miles on it that would come on >25mph & got louder as the speeds built. Got to the point where people driving next to me on the highway would look over in disgust. I had my Wife drive next to me to try & pinpoint where the whine was coming from & she said it sounded like the rear px side. It was either from the vent or rear wheels. I jacked up the car & placed it on jackstands, took the wheels off & spun everything that would spin & looked at every piece in the drivetrain that would move. I even ran the car through the gears while on jackstands to see if I could replicate the sound but was not able to. Took the cover off the vent & ran the car until the engine got nice & warm but still no sound. The brakes & rotors are fine. Nothing I did would replicate the whine except while driving >25mph. After ~500 miles, the whine stopped. The car still drives fine & I've done the above again since the noise stopped & I can't spot anything that looks/feels different on the car. I'm just crossing my fingers it doesn't start again or something catastrophic happens (which I doubt :unsure:)
  3. WOW! :notworthy: Thanks so much for that write-up & the nearly step-by-step photos. That's awesome! :renntech:
  4. I noticed one next to the battery in front of the driver. Is there another one? I find the OEM horns rather whimpy so I ordered a set of Hella Twin Supertone Horns. I also have them on my STi & love how they sound -- LOUD! Again, it's on a MY03 Boxster S TIA.
  5. My radio hasn't yet been disabled but I know it will be sooner or later. I'm the 3rd owner of this '03 Boxster S & the radio code has been long lost. I've tried the above technique & nothing happens other then "MUTE" being constantly displayed. Is there another way to get the above information? I know the radio is a CDR23 with separate amp (fiber optic?) up front. But I don't know which amp it is. (4 or 6-channel -- unless they're all 6-channel if it's FO.)
