    Porsche Boxster S 986
  1. Eric, the headliner was on the car all the time. No problem with that. I have the rear speakers and did remove them and the storage box. O do not know if that is really necessary. But after the installation I did some leakage tests. And without the storage box it was much easier to check for leaks on the rear part of the top from the inside. Chris
  2. Eric, you do not have to disassemble the liner. I exchanged the top on my 01 Boxster S with the liner on the car, and it never hurt me during installation process. Chris
  3. Hello, here is an update of the latest status and some observations I want to share with the community: 1) The lower eye of the bowden cable (there were the cable will be attached to the lower B-pillar) is to small. The screw that is assembled at that position on my 2001 Boxster S has a diameter of 5.1mm. Whereas the eye just has a diameter of 4.9mm. It took me just some minutes to widen it by a Dremel tool. But if somebody wants to buy a GAHH top, you might ask them if they changed this glitch. I already wrote them a mail regarding this. Also the length of the outer cover of the bowde
  4. Maurice, thank you very much for your information and your kind words. With that recommendation in mind, I will definitely exchange the red ball cups! Concerning the foam sealer: There I got me some foam which is adhesive on on side. Out of this foam I cutted two pieces that should be very similar than the old ones. As adviced, I spared enough material around were the philips screws will be later. Now lets come to the slider! Thank you for the link. In fact I read the thread during my preparation and had the clear feeling from this, that the old slider ...7000 out of my car will be way s
  5. Maurice, it would be helpful if you can halp me with your advice. Today I removed my old top from my 2001 Boxster S. Due to your good description I did not had a problem. But for the installation process I have two questions were I defintely need your advice: 1) As adviced by you in a thread I bought the latest version of the sliders. Which is at the moment in fact the 986 5616 7002 (the ...7003 are apparently not valid anymore). In my car there was the ...7000. Comparing both parts, the older one is about 1 inch longer and I never had problems with cables falling out. I did not damage t
  6. Maurice, could you send me the source as well? I am planning to install a GAAH glass top and thought it might a good idea to exchange the red sockets with newer ones. Thank you! Christoph
