  1. Thanks for the info. I tried it and was able to push the axle back in. It appeared to click right back in with minimal force. Hope it's good to go. Just need a bit of transmission oil as about a liter leaked out. I'll get it topped off tomorrow and take it for a test drive. Thanks
  2. I'm in the process of replacing the right rear wheel bearing. In the process of trying to remove the end of the axle from the wheel bearing housing I have actually ended up pulling the transmission flange right out of the transmission. I was having difficulty in removing the axle end and hit it 4 times to help loosen it up. This had the effect of breaking loose the transmission flange at the transmission. How do I re-install the transmission flange back to the transmission? Currently the inner cv joint is attached to the transmission flange and the axle. The whole axle came off in one piece wh
  3. Hi, I'm in the process of replacing the rear axle shaft assembly. In trying to take apart the ball joint on the axle strut (wishbone) that connects to the wheel carrier I've ripped up the rubber dust seal. Is there a way to repair this or replace them? What is the part number for the dust seals or do I have to replace the entire axle strut? Thanks. 2001 Boxster S
  4. That's just the clarification I was looking for. Thanks.
  5. I just replaced my CDR-220 with a new (no name brand) after market double din,CD, Ipod/ GPS system. After considerable time I have been able to get the dash and door speakers to work through the Porsche M490 amp (4x40). I'm not sure if I have a grounding issue as every time I change volume or mode I get a very loud sound indicating the change. Is this normal to have an indicator sound? My second question is how to wire up the rear speakers. With the CDR-220 I was able to connect the rear speakers to the Head Unit and the dash and doors ran off the amp. I do have the wiring diagrams for the P
  6. Hi Maurice, thanks for the info. I do have the top adjusted to a good forward position now. I adjusted the push rod about 3/16 longer. As the top comes into the closed position the forward tab is just a bit high and I now need to hold it down slightly to fit into the closed position. Will tightening the tension rope bring the leading edge slightly down? Or should I just leave it for a few days to see if it adjusts to this new position? Again thanks for your help. Hookoo3
  7. I replaced my top about a month ago with a new glass window top. After a month I still can't get the top to close on it's own. I can just close it now by pulling hard whereas at first I needed 2 people to pull it closed. I didn't replace the sliders with new ones and used the existing ones. I wasn't successful in removing the sliders during the top replacement without breaking the little tabs however I just put them back in. Would the faulty sliders have an impact on the top not closing fully on its own. I have had the top in the hot sun and closed for the majority of a month except when drivi
  8. The email response I recieved back from Nokian Tyres , North America " I strongly suggest that you return those to place of purchase ASAP! All the oils that's used to produce those tires are probably dried out and can be extremely dangerous." The tire dealer has now fully refunded my purchase and I have ordered new tires for replacement. Lesson learned- do your own checking prior to purchase. A little bit of inconvenience for me however I'll now have a bit more safety. Thanks.
  9. I just recently had a flat tire and unfortunately the interior side wall showed damage. I have replaced both rear tires with Nokian NRZi (265/35-18). The tires are W speed rated however I don't track the car and am willing to not have the Z rating. These were the only choice I had at the tire dealer other than waiting 3 or 4 days to get new tires. I did ask how old the tires were and I was told they were 1 year old, so I went ahead with them. I get home and check the manufacturers date stamped on the tire and they were made during the 38th week of 2002. The tires are 7 years old however never
  10. I got it figured out. There is a plastic plug you use to push the metal clip on and the plastic circlip is like an o-ring that goes inside the threaded fitting.
  11. I have now recieved the threaded fitting 999.230.541.10. Inside this fitting is the metal circular clip that I need that was broken in the original fitting. What is the circlip part number 999.230.685.40 used for? Do I need to use this plastic fitting or is oK to just use the circular metal clip that comes inside the threaded fitting which is number 22 on the diagram. I'm a bit confused whether the plastic circlip is used as I didn't see it in the fitting. The packing list came with a description in German however I have no idea what it means. The diagram seems to indicate an o-ring and I'm no
  12. Is there a difference between Super Dot 4 and Dot 4 brake fluid? All I could find on the shelves is Dot 4 brake fluid rated for 478 F. Is synthetic Dot 4 brake fluid adequate for 2001 Boxster S? If there is a difference between Super Dot 4 and Dot 4 what is it? Thanks
  13. The threaded joint is number 22. I've checked a parts manual and the threaded joint is 999.230.541.10. The parts manual also states that the circlip for the theaded joint is 999.230.685.40 I just recieved a clip and it doesn't match at all what came out of the threaded joint. Is it possible that the warehouse just sent out the wrong part? The clip should be metal and circular and what I recieved is an open plastic piece that if squeezed together may form a circle however I have no idea how this will hold or even fit into the threaded joint. Thanks
  14. I need help for a part number. The clutch line separated on me at the connection at the end of the hydraulic line where it connects to the hose that then connects to the slave cylinder. From the clutch diagram it shows the part is #22 and there are three in total. I believe the threaded joint on clutch pipeline is part # 999.230.541.10. Inside the threaded joint is a circular clip that holds in place the hose connector. What is the part number for the clip inside the threaded joint? I did order a circlip part number 999.230.685.40 however it does not in any way resembles the clip inside the th
  15. I was finally able to get the compression fitting off. It was very tight. Inside the fitting is a small clip that was broken. I've ordered the replacement circlip, part number 999.230.685.40. Hopefully next week I'll be able to get it all back together.
