  1. I came accross this video on another forum and it answered many questions I had in my OP. Thought I would share it here... Enjoy.
  2. I bought my 981 with the convenience package mainly for the heated seats, but it also came with the windstop as part of the package. I'm open to selling mine if you want to PM me.
  3. So back to my original question... I just took delivery of a 981 and the owner's manual makes no mention of how to access the engine. And a look at the area where the top retracts does not look familiar to a previous 986 owner like me... Is there a way you could post how one would get access to the air filter? Is there a similar procedure to the 986/987 models by putting the top in a "service position"??
  4. Thanks for the schematic Loren. The 981 has two cone-shaped air filters (one on each side) -- different than the 986/987.
  5. Let's say I want to change the air filters (both for engine air intake and the cabin pollen filter). Is it still as easy to change these as it was on the 986/987 boxsters?
  6. Does anyone have some advance info on accessing the engine bay in the new boxster? I am hearing that some routine maintenance tasks are more difficult for DIY'ers than previous generations, and that part of the problem is just accessing parts like the air filter, etc...
  7. Disregard last post and sorry for the intrusion... I just played around with the switch more as the hood was open and after a few minutes it started working again. weird.
  8. Hello, I have a 2003 Boxster. The "frunk" opens/unlatches fine when I use the key fob, but NOTHING happens when I try to use the switch to the left of the driver's seat. Therefore I assume it is not an issue with the 1) fuse 2) solenoid/actuator 3) latch mechanism. I suppose it is a problem with the switch on the interior. Any advice how to proceed? It's not obvious to me how to get access and what I may need to fix or replace. Many thanks, -Roger
  9. My headlights used to work fine, then inconsistently (they would come on several minutes after I had turned the switch), and now they don't want to come on at all. I suspect the switch assembly, but before I go in there, were your symptoms similar to mine? Thanks, -Roger

Thank You, Loren!! Like the OP, I have a 2003 (986) with almost exactly 50,000 miles. Up

  12. My 2003 986 is my DD, so with mixed highway and city driving, it's usually right around 23.5 MPG with no A/C. -Roger
