I have an '01 Boxster S with 55,000 miles on the clock. Two issues, I'm not sure if they're related. The last couple of days at idle speed, I hear a whine/sqealing sound from the engine as if pulley bearings or a belt is slipping. Doesn't happen all the time and not at all if the revs are over 1500. Also, the last few days at morning start-up a huge amount of dense black smoke comes out the exhaust. After a minute or so the exhaust is normal again. There doesn't seem to be any loss in performance. Thoughts. Are the 2 related or just coincidental? Is the dense smoke a signal that there is serious engine problems
I have an '01 Boxster S with 50,000 miles on the clock. My clutch is slipping in all gears starting at 2000 revs. Is there any adjustment on the Boxster clutch? Is 50,000 miles the average lifespan on the clutch? Other than routine maintenance, I've had nothing done to the baby and am shakin' in my boots at the prospect of visiting my local Porsche dealer with a repair issue. What might I expect as a reasonable estimate on the cost of such a repair? Thanks to all
jerryko27 posted a topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)I've just been reading about Yousief's onboard computer hack. I have an '01 boxster s and am wondering if anyone has tried the hack and did it work?
I have an '01 Boxster S with the M490 sound option (ie CDR220 H/U, HAES 4x40W amp) and I have recently added OEM rear speakers. I also have purchased an HAES 6x40W DSP amplifier and DSP faceplate that fits into the center stack. My question is this, if I cut the alignment keys off of the connector and plug my system into the new amp will it work and do I need to use the center stack DSP faceplate as well. Thanking all you stereo guys in advance
Thanks for clearing that up for me! Regards, Maurice. I too have an HAES 6x40 amp but mine is a DSP which I assume means digital . Iwant to replace the stock 4x40 amp in my Boxster S with the new amp. Ialso have recently done the rear speaker to the H/U install. My H/U is a CDR220. Will the new 6x40 amp work with my system, plug-n-playwise if I cut the keys off the connectors? Thanks for all your help
jerryko27 replied to The Hoth's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)I have an HAES amplfier 6x40W p/n 996.645.322.00. Might this be what you're looking for?
I would pull the HU and check the wiring harness as well. It's easy enough to do. You may find a loose connection. If the connections at the dash speakers are good and the doors aren't cutting out then the only other connection points are the HU and the amp. You can pull out the wiring harness behind the HU pretty easily. Is it the stock head unit? Yes, stock H/U...CDR220. Ihave pulled out the H/U and replaced it with one I bought on ebay...both exhibit the same issue. Also, had a look at the amp and all the connections seem fine. Goint to keep my eyes open for an amp on ebay. Who knows!!
I have the m490 option sound system in an '01 boxster s (dash and door speakers). The right front speaker(s) cut in and out, but not completely. Seems to me that the high or mid-range speaker(s) cut out but the low or bass speaker(s) don't. Can't tell if its the door speaker or dash speaker. I want to check the connections at the speaker and see how to access the dash speakers (2 torx screws) but I don't know how to access the door speakers. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated
