  1. Thanks for the assistance PK, but I'm afraid I had already commited to the work being done at the garage. Should be picking it up tomorrow. The garage said they have got it working perfectly in the work shop but need to road test it. Hopefully it has cured the problem and not just a symptom of an underlying issue, but only time will tell. Quite reasonable labour rate at a Porsche specialist so touch wood it won't be as expensive as I first thought. Thanks again.
  2. Thanks Maurice. I wouldn't be suprised though if the UK price in £ sterling was not much less than it is in dollars! We always seem to get ripped off over here!! PK - Does sound wierd doesn't it? Very similiar problem I think - they said they could "get it to work" but not reliably. The garage also said though that it will probably cost more in labour to try and find the fault with the motor than it would be to just fit a working second hand one. So I guess we will never know!
  3. It was the spoiler motor not having enough power, apparently. The garage is fitting a second hand one, they say part will cost £60-£80 plus fitting. Hate to think what a new one is then!!
  4. Hi, I hope someone maybe able to help with this strange problem with the spoiler. The car is a 97 UK RHD Manual 2.5 Boxster. A few days ago I noticed that the rear spoiler wasn't sat flush with the body, nothing dramatic, just maybe half an inch or so on the left side (looking towards the front). I genty pushed it and it sat flush. Next time I took it out for a spin the spoiler warning light came on when I reached 75mph and stayed on, which I believe is trying to tell me the spoiler hasn't raised. That brings me onto my next problem - it has raised because it doesn't go back down again! Af
  5. 6571 , sorry, I should have included it when I replied. They require the model number and serial number. It's just a generic Becker form that you fill in, but a bit of Googling and I found the CDR-21 was a BE2280.
  6. Try 5571 or 5569 Unfortunately neither worked, nor the numbers 2 apart or the one in the middle. Thanks for trying though, I will contact the dealer tomorrow. :) Just an update - I managed to obtain the correct radio code from http://instant-radio-code.co.uk/ for £8.99/$18 and displayed instantly on screen. It might be useful if Loren's code doesn't work and/or your dealer is being awkward about it. They say 100% guareenteed to be the correct one at the time of manufacture, but of course I can only say that mine worked first time, don't know about anyone else.
