Just refitted the microswitch in the roof for my 986 boxster following a few problems with windows coming down. Only problem is the 2 retaining nuts that the torx head bolts screw into and are located in the metal windshield have both split and the bolts keep falling out. Is there an easy way to replace these or does the windscreen need to come out? or is there a simple solution?
Sounds like the same thing when I had a wheel bearing go bad. Put the front end of the car up and see how much play you hae in the hub on each side. Thanks for that. I'm not very practical at these things so may have to get it taken in to a garage fo rthem to assess. Hoping it was a simple thing. Someone has suggested a stone lodged between brake caliper and disc ?
Just been for a quick drive to check my tyre pressures which were fine, but just driving off I could hear a grating metallic sound from the front wheel area. ( 2.5 tip Boxster, 1999, 36,000 miles) I stopped and noise went away, I revved up and there was no noise. It only happens at car speed rather than engine speed. Sounds a bit like i have gone over a tin can and its stuck under the car or something like that or a bit of trim is rubbing, that kind of noise. Drove home slowly and checked as best I could under the car but could not see anything. Looked at brakes and smelt them but nothing burning or anything. Any one any ideas?
Hi there , been reading various threads since I got my 2.5 Tip Box a couple of weeks ago, but this is my first posting. Recently had a few remote issues like the remote would not work, but followed advice here and seemed to correct itself after trying to remap the key. Went wrong again, but then did the same ignition on , then off and then press fob before 6 secs and it works fine now. However, new problem: the radio used to turn off a few seconds after the key was taken out of the ignition, but today I parked and walked off with the sound still blaring and was still on when I came back 10 mins later !! Hope its not one of these multiple electrical faults that comes on intermittently and one day its the remote, the next its the radio..... What's wrong? Or is there something I need to reset on the radio? (Apart from that, it runs great and I really enjoy the drive . 35k on the clock FPSH. Little sluggish in tiptronic at low revs, but manual is fun. Good entry point for me.) Help grateful accepted !!
