  1. My car was parked in a hotel lot for two days in Rehoboth, DE. There was a lot of rain! When I checked out, the windows behaved erratically. They would down, but not up. Then up but not down. Eventually, both windows working stopped halfway up. The switches did nothing! I drove home (about 3 hours) with the windows halfway open. During the drive, I occasionally checked and both windows remained inoperative the whoIe time.When I got home, I checked the fuses and both fuses were OK. After a night in my garage, the driver's window worked perfectly! The passenger window lowered correctly but inche
  2. After recent service on my 2005 Boxster, the driver's door is not detected as "open". The passenger compartment lights do not come on, the "Key in the ignition" warning does not come on and the window goes all the way up, not 1/4 inch lower as it should. I noticed that, after service, my clock was set wrong and the MPG indicator was reset. Could it be that the service computer accidentally disabled the driver's door open sensor?
  3. I want to remove the panel containing the switches to open my front and read deck lids. I think they are broken or the plug is out. There are two screws holding the panel in but they are deep and covered by a flap of carpet. My star and allen sockets do not engage the screws. Does anyone know what type and size these screws are?
  4. I'd love to have the schematic. My e-mail is alfloiz@toast.net. Both switches feel "soft" when I pull them. There is no click. I suspect the plastic levers are broken. Both switches are electrical and interface into controllers for the rear and front lids. The front lid is operated by the front controller and the rear lid is operated by the rear controller - these then go into the door lock circuitry which have "less complicated" controllers to open the lids. I have some schematics for my 07 Box that I could send you (can't post due to copyright laws) -- send me a PM with your email
  5. The owner's manual indicates that an electrical connection is necessary to open the lids. I take that to mean that they are electrical switches. The dealer that they were not working because a cable needed adjusting but I believe he was wrong. If they are switches, I am considering removing them entirely and replacing them with toggle switches which work.
  6. There are two small levers (switches?) at the base of the driver's door that operate the front and rear lids. Mine don't work. Are these mechanical links operating cables? The movement is very short. They feel more like electrical switches. Is there any other way (except of course the remote key buttons) to open the front or rear lids from outside the car?
  7. About a month ago, I was dismayed to discover a sheet metal screw embedded in my right front tire. I wasn’t loosing any air so I took it to a local Firestone dealer and asked his opinion. He said that it was too far from the tread to be repairable and since I wasn’t loosing air, he recommended that I leave the screw in place and consider replacing all four tires, which had a lot of wear but probably would have made it through the winter and spring. I researched replacement tires and decided that I wanted Continental DWS. The car was parked in a garage during the recent snow event in Bal
