  1. Thanks Loren. From what I understand in this TSB, I need to rewired from the door side airbag to the connector, redo the connection inside the door connector, rewired from the door connector to the control unit, then redo the connector of the unit connector... Then reconnect the battery and hoping that the fault code is gone...
  2. Hello. This one is for Loren.... I endup with an Airbag warning light with a fault code 801b. By doing some research, I found a TSB that lead to the potential cause of this fault code. ( Corrosion due to moisture in the door connection point.) Here is my question, on the TSB 6953 there are no clear figure explaining where or how to connect the 2 upgrade wire harness, they are also refering to a workshop manual 2706in for connection of the airbag unit, and for control unit. Where can I find detailed informations for this TSB or about the WS 2706in ??? Thanks Fred
  3. Boxster 986 @ 37 Boxster 987 @ 42 And already planning for the new Boxster 981 in 2012
  4. Hello I've swap a ZF A86.00 with an 2001 ZF A86.05 In my old 1997 Boxster 986, I also had the matching 2001 transmission TCU, but endup using the old one. My Motronic was not able to see the newer TCU because of the MOST interface. But dont worry, the tranny should work well with the old Control anyway. You can see my topic about this here.. http://www.renntech....131#entry177131 Good luck
  5. Hello To dump oil like this in the front of the tranny, the only possible cause might be the torque converter seal.... ZF 5hp19 Tiptronic transmission need 9 litres of oil to run. dump half of it, and you have a dead tranny. Please provide more informations, like your mileage, or if the transmission was maintained recently ( fluid & filter change ) or if the dumped oil got a particular strong burn smell. Good luck
  6. Loren, Could you clear the personal information of Scott to protect his identity ?

  7. Hello Scott

    I prefer Paypal for payment. Also please provide me your full address for the shipping option available.

    Best regards


  8. Hello Scott.

    This is just to informed you that I've done some test with my current PCM navteq DVD maps, and that I'm now running my PCM on a clone DVD without any issue. So if you're still interested, I could sell you the original for $180 or a fully tested copies of all the cd/DVD for $80...Your choice...

    Best regards.


  9. Yes, it's the 902.51 part number with the 2010 maps and upgrade.

  10. Hello Scott

    I will also try to run the Navtech Maps with a clone DVD, and if it works, I could sell you all the original CD & DVD for $180.

    Let me know if you're interested.

    Best regards

  11. Hello Scott

    I finally bought the kit from Pelican parts... and at 268$, it was a pretty fair price...

    I will keep you informed about the update.

    Best regards
