Exact same thing happened to my 2000 Boxster couple weeks ago. I just done mine over the weekend. Not hard at all. Here's a link with some pic- http://www.bombaydigital.com/boxster/projects/window/ Pay attention to the great tips about marking the locations for the retaining nuts at the bottom of the door panel and also marking the window at the front clamp before taking it off. This will make installation pretty straight forward. The one mistake I did was hooking up the battery and testing the window. Since i did it with the air bag still disconnected, the airbag warning light now stays on all the time and I going to need help to reset that light. So if you do want to test it before putting the door panel back make sure you connect the airbag connector too.
Before you spent all that money, you may want to do what I did. I took out my right rear wheel and saw a cable kind of coursing through along with a rear suspension component- I'm not sure if it's the control arm or trailing arm, or what you might call it. At any rate, the cable (I believe is the parking brake cable) has some give to it. And when I do flop it around it does seem to make contact with the metal arm and make noise. I remember reading some treads about the cable might cause noise problem, so I put a plastic cable tie and tied it to the metal arm next to it. I didn't really have high hope but voila, since I did that there was no noise! --Ken
You guys been helpful in the past when my 2000 Boxster developed problems. Hope some of you can point me in the right direction. For the last few months there is this noise seems to come from passenger side of the engine, it's intermittent, doesn't come on idle and only on driving, and not all the time. So I had a hard time capturing in on video. Here's a 1 min clip on Youtube: It's this background - "Tick,Tick,Tick,Tick" sound. -The clicking frequency seems to change according to engine speed, so when shifting from 3rd geer to 2nd to slow down the car, it clicks faster. -Noise only happens when car is in gear, accelerating or decelerating within gear. When clutch pedal is pressed or in neutral, noise stops. -Noise does not happen if car is at a stoplight, stopped, or crusing in neutral. It also doesn't seem noticable at freeway speed, but I suspect it's because the frequency of these clicks increase to the point it's a continous sound so I don't notice it. -Noise happens regardless of surface or if driving straight/turning." This is a 4th hand manual Boxster (not S) I owned for over a year. Almost 100k on it now but running smooth otherwise. No warning light. Look above and below, can't find any loose cable or anything. Hope if you guys have a diagnosis I can DYI fix it, if not will bring it to the shop but my wife sure won't be too happy to see the bill... --Ken
kkmchan replied to natzee's topic in DIY Articles - Boxster (986) - Common Fixes and RepairsI did the silicone fix. My tip is- go ahead and apply silicone to both sides of the 4 rubber bushings. I did it on only one side and that wasn't enough.
My story goes like this. Bought the car a from a 3rd owner without a code, now the ignition switch is acting up and need to disconnect the battery to fix it. Here's my info- 2000 Boxster Becker 1 Type 4362 S/N X5019250 47/98 Please help me with the code! Much appreciate!
